Design Director Raj Patel said: “The building is really in two parts. The large horizontal podium containing a VIP Reception Hall, Conference Centre, Dining Hall, and public spaces are in the shape of a dhow – the vessel which bought riches to the country through fishing and pearl diving. And the vertical modern tower piercing the skyline, which contains the private offices for the employees. It represents the future wealth of the country and its increasing global presence.”
