Like many modern cities, Dubai evolved through a quick process lead by innovations and technology.

The towers are oriented exactly along the east-west axis so that the eastern and western gardens shelter the floors from the harsh desert sun and the climatic effects of the area.

The south-facing façade utilizes extensive sunshades to lower solar gain.
