Infinity Tower to alter Dubai skyline

The Dubai skyline, which already boasts standout buildings like the Burg Khalifa, is set to be transformed by a unique new building.Infinity Tower, which is to stand in Dubai Marina, will alter the emirate's skyline with its 90 degree twist, The National reported.While already described as an architect's playground, Dubai will now be home to the world's tallest twisted tower, with the new building set to stand 73 storeys and 307 metres tall.Ross Wimer, a design partner at Som, which was behind the Burj Khalifa, told the new provider: "It is a piece of sculpture that is unusually large and that is the effect that we were really after … a large piece of sculpture that had this dynamic form."The real idea behind the twist had to do with the views, because the primary views down low in the building are towards the marina but then the building."
