Capital Gate, also known as the Leaning Tower of Abu Dhabi, is a skyscraper with a striking lean. Inclined by 18 to the west, this spectacular high-rise was made possible by a diagrid structure. The iconic building even received an entry into the Guinness World Records as the "world's furthest leaning man-made tower". This book tells the story behind the design by architectural office RMJM and explains the sophisticated structural concept.
Jeff Schofield, Martin Dufresne, design architects of Capital Gate, Abu Dhabi
