World’s Tallest Building: Burj Dubai
This exhibition places Burj Dubai in both the historical context of the competition for the world’s tallest building and in the contemporary arena of Dubai’s explosive growth. A collective effort of 90 designers in the Chicago office of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill with a team of consultants, the design and construction of the tower is the focus. Architectural models, drawings and computer animations, wind-tunnel models, construction photographs and videos, animations of elevators and façade machinery, and a section of the curtain-wall, among other items are on view.

Pratt Institute graduate students in architecture will exhibit a variety of proposals for a new community natatorium (narrow valley) in Nicosia, capital of the Republic of Cyprus — the last divided capital in Europe. Architectural models, drawings, and computer simulations illustrating the students’ proposals will be on display with historical research and site documentation obtained by the students during the conceptual phase of their designs. The 10 students were directed in their studies by Pratt Professor Theoharis David, FAIA.
