An icon of wealth and high tech, the skyscraper will transform the setting where it is to be built, not only by effect of its height but due to the materials that will be used, such as glass for a clear, lightweight look.
The idea suggested by the building will be a gradual rise to the sky, almost as if it fades away as it rises, so that the tip of the building may be hidden by the effect of weather conditions and lighting.
The skyscraper will be built by Samsung Corporation, which has won the contract, worth over 300 million euros.
Its position next to a man-made lake further emphasises the building's height and transparency.
