The Ghaddafi tower is a Hotel, offices and shopping mall. A small variation in the vertical window band on facade creates an abstract pattern, that seen from a distance turns into crystal clear portraits of Muammar al-Ghaddafi and Libya map. The equilateral triangular footprint creates a building with no ends, only three faces perceived as free standing two-dimensional surfaces.
