Unique Skyscraper Design is the skill of the architect Adrian Smith, and now he again attracted attention. Once the project one of the world’s tallest building, Burj Khalifa, an American architect designed the building called the Dancing Dragons or the “Dragon Dance”.

Coating materials outside the building will have features like dragon scales the wall so that it can breathe. Scales or skin is in fact a performance element that is used for ventilation. And to the impression of dancing, will arise when looking at this building.
“There is sympathetic and complementary relationship between the two buildings at a certain level, so as if they were dancing,” said Smith, as quoted from Inhabitant, Friday (11/05/2012). The team that designed the building, including energy and engineering company based in Chicago, Positive Energy Practice. The company provides consulting services to energy-efficient systems for both Unique Skyscraper Design.
Some energy-saving features that exist in this building include a photovoltaic array on the surface of the roof, radiant, unit cogeneration (combined heat and power) fuel in the basement, and triple-glazed windows to minimize heat loss.
Buildings with a height of 450 and 390 meters will include residential, office and retail elements. This building will have an order form “V” at the top and bottom of the building. It is claimed will help reinforce the geometry of the corner of the building. According to Smith and Gill, form “V” was intended to represent a traditional Korean temple roof.
