The Golden Cube avoids all comparisons; its absolute form effortlessly conquers any dimension and guarantees its unique timelessness. The structure looks like it has always been there.
The Golden Cube becomes a gigantic window framing the ever-changing skyline of the city. The structure holds a horizontal surface in the sky, a suspended oasis with a view. ThyssenKrupp equips The Golden Cube with a state-of-the art circulation system; four types of elevators, escalators following a circle of the building and a capsule rolling along a second one. The structure acts like a pedestal for different types of mechanical movement. The Golden Cube is a gigantic adornment. A monument to Construction. A new icon for Dubai.
