Capital Gate Tower

GKD-USA - Capital Gate Tower in Abu Dhabi

GKD-USA (Cambridge, Md.) completed projects including the Capital Gate Tower in Abu Dhabi, the world’s furthest-leaning tower. Clad with custom GKD’s Tigris 2100, the stainless steel splash that descends from the 19th floor is a design element and shading device that eliminates more than 30% of the sun’s heat before it reaches the Capital Gate building. The splash also twists around the building toward the south to shield the tower as much as possible from direct sunlight.
