chicago based practice adrian smith + gordon gill has recently unveiled plans to build 'kingdom tower' in jeddah, saudi arabia. 
expected to become the world's next tallest building, it will be a component within the kingdom city development reviving the core of 
the city located on the red sea. the slender form is derived from the folded fronds of a native plant emerging from the arid 
desert sand. the mixed use building will accommodate a four seasons hotel, apartments, office space, luxury condominiums 
and the world's highest observatory.

three petals with horizontal notches unite to create an asymmetrical volume reducing wind forces generated from its extreme height.
although the ultimate elevation will only be revealed to the public at completion, it is confirmed that it will be over 1,000 meters tall, 
serviced by 59 elevators and 12 escalators. construction will commence in the near future and the projected completion date will be five 
years from ground breaking. the entire development will cost 20 billion USD, with approximately 1.2 billion USD allotted for the tower.

in reference to the design, architect adrian smith has stated:
'with its slender, subtly asymmetrical massing, the tower evokes a bundle of leaves shooting up from the ground - a burst of new 
life that heralds more growth all around it.'
