This Futuristic Building Design in Dubai Looks Like It’s Floating in Air

Opus Office Towers - floating buildingCheck out the new layout planned for the Opus Office Tower in Dubai, a 21-story unit unlike any you’ve seen before. The futuristic architecture looks like a hollowed out cube floating in air. The structure is connected by an almost hidden base with a walkway up top connecting the two sides. The multi-purpose building is sure to complement the modern Middle Eastern cityscape of Dubai and is set to be finished in 2016 by Zaha Hadid Architects.

Also, the building looks different during the day than at night! The creators of the project explained: “A pixelated reflective fa├žade renders the cube full by day; by night it ‘dematerializes’ as light floods the void.”

Until you can visit the place in person, enjoy these projected photos:
