16 Projects to Look Forward to for 2016
Over at Mental Floss, Nick Keppler has assembled a fun list of 16 projects that should complete construction in 2016. Above, and first on Keppler's list, is Vincent Callebaut Architectures' twisty, sustainable, green and lush, 20-story Agora Garden condo tower for Taipei, Taiwan. Other fascinating projects to look forward to are the future tallest residential tower in Mumbai, India, as well as a two-pronged 82-story condo tower for the Indian financial capital; a jaunt shard of a tower for Warsaw, Poland, from Daniel Libeskind, AIA; Jean Nouvel, Hon. FAIA's National Museum of Qatar in Doha; the future second- and fifth-tallest towers for Saudi Arabia; an arena for Las Vegas; a big new Marriott for Houston; Marina 101 in Dubai (after nearly a decade of planning and construction); a Robert A.M. Stern tower overlooking Central Park; and more.
