Former OMA partner Ole Scheeren has unveiled his design for a 268m skyscraper next to the Petronas Tower in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
The tower, Angkasa Raya, was commissioned by local developer Sunrise Berhad and is made up of three cubic volumes that appear to float above horizontal layers.
The project will contain residences, premium offices and a hotel. Construction is set to begin in the first quarter of 2012.
Ole Scheeren, who set up his own practice Buro Ole Scheeren, was behind Beijing’s landmark CCTV Headquarters building while working for OMA.
