Who is the architect of the Tower Of The Arab, which is shaped like a sail?

Phnom Penh: Imagination and over-creativity are not likely to be the result of great architecture, in fact, all the famous buildings in the world are built in the shape of natural animals and in the form of appliances.

In fact, Tom Wright, the famous designer of the Tower of the Arabs in Dubai, designed the building to look like a sail. What is Tom Wright’s background? He was born on September 18, 1957, a British architect known as the designer of the famous Burj Al Arab (Tower of the Arabs) in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Wright attended Royal Russell School and then went on to study at the Kingston Polytechnic School of Architecture.


Wright joined the Royal Institute of British Architects in 1993 and became a professional architect the same year, becoming Atkins’ chief architect of architecture in 1991. Wright became the design director for the Jumeirah Beach Resort in Dubai and also designed the Burj Al Arab (Tower of the Arabs) during that time. The Burj Al Arab (Tower of the Arabs) was created to symbolize Dubai’s identity, as do the Sydney Opera House in Sydney and the Eiffel Tower in Paris. The building was inspired by the dwarf’s shipwreck to reflect Dubai’s maritime heritage, with a modern look to the future.

The Burj Al Arab (Tower of the Arabs) is one of the most luxurious hotels in the world and was named the first seven-star hotel located in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. It was started in 1994 on an artificial island and opened to the public in 1999 at a height of 321 meters at a cost of about $ 1 billion. Tom Wright lived in Dubai during the design and construction of this famous building project as Atkins’ design director.

In 2013, Tom Wright, Geku George, and Hakim Khennouchi left Atkins to form a new company, WKK, headquartered in Epsom, Surrey, southeastern England.
