Famous Spanish engineer and architect Santiago Calatrava is all set to design a brand new observation tower in Dubai, a city that is already home to lots of majisterial examples of architecture.

This observation tower will take on a dart-like shape, with the details inspired by classic Islamic architecture. The tower's height is deliberately going to be kept a secret until the day it is open to the public, with construction set to commence in a few months.

The tower is going to be situated in the Dubai Creek Harbor area, which is being redeveloped to also include luxury residential towers.

Dubai is already home to some spectacularly audacious and innovative works of architecture, meaning this observation tower will surely have a unique appeal to it that will make it stand out in the crowded Dubai skyline.
