The Michael Schumacher World Champion Tower was recently unveiled at Cityscape Dubai by a fresh new Architecture firm called LAVA (Laboratory for Visionary Architecture). They integrated Formula 1 Technology in their design and drew further inspiration via collaboration with Michael Schumacher himself! It is set to break ground early 2009.

Developed for clients Vedera Capital|Marasi, completion is expected around June 2011.

The combined resume’s of LAVA’s 3 co-partners (Chris Bosse, Tobias Wallisser and Alexander Rieck) include Beijing’s Watercuboid and the Mercedes-Benz Museum in Germany.

“The unique collaboration with Michael Schumacher gave us new insights. Technology, precision, speed, elegance, paired with human intuition and extraordinary performance were a great source of inspiration for the design. Similar to the formula one operation, construction is a team sport with a lot of highly skilled experts. In this sense the architects take the driver seat in the process, taking the project to the physical limits of possibility”, says Alexander Rieck

Inspired by the geometric order of a snowflake and F1 racing aerodynamics, this futuristic tower encapsulates speed, and technology drawing from fluid dynamics with a tough of Feng Shui.
