A 325-metre BASE jump tower has been proposed in Dubai that will offer a platform for extreme sports, according to a report published by the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH). 10 Design, the lead design architect, has conceived an expressive building form for the tower, devising a sculptural external hexagrid skin. The base and lower levels of the tower contain training, simulator and visitor experiences, including junior climbing walls, wire-assisted high diving and free-fall facilities. In the mid-levels of the tower, semi-external climbing and abseiling environments are located between the hexagrid skin and the central core, creating a 140-metre-high elevated climbing experience. At the uppermost level, the tower volume flares out to create a series of ice climbs for the most experienced climbers. The three peaks of the tower are designed as platforms for wire assisted free fall and BASE jump points.
