The Blooming Tower by Mekene Architecture is a modern eco-concept structure in Dubai. The 170-meter tall tower is made of lightweight aluminum and covered with white sail cloth, protecting the building from the heat of the sun. This cloth also functions as petals for the tower, collecting dew drops at its bottom, using the water to generate energy.

The Blooming Tower also contains a recreational area, picnic areas, a library, a conference area, and cafes.
