here is architectures david tajchman's proposal for the tall emblem structure,
located in the zaabeel park dubai.

standing at 170 meters tall 'cloud city' consists of a three level platform.
the first level is the children's library which is designed with inclined surfaces.
at the second level are three auditoriums, which can be configured in various
ways that rotate around the elevators axis. the upper floor is located above
the auditorium is a panoramic restaurant also rotating 360 degrees.

an underground park is located in the park, under the pond, prohibiting cars to
be driven in the park. natural light crosses the water to light up the parking, while
at night artificial light from the parking lights up the water surface of the pond.
a footbridge at water level crosses the pond, bringing visitors to the elevators core.

four legs made of white perforated concrete surround three elevators and an emergency
staircase leading visitors to a cloud city. each elevator is a transparent capsule that
provide views of the city through holes in the concrete structure. at night, elevators
are illuminated displaying their progression in altitude.
