The community is home to diverse architectural styles depicted in the skyscraper buildings, business towers, street art and the vast concrete streets populating the area. The area abounds with examples of imaginative architecture, and the most poignant example has to be the outstanding architecture of Opus Tower, bearing the signature of famous architect Zaha Hadid. Opus was designed as two single towers that merge into a single whole, taking the form of a cube, exploring the balance between solid and void, opaque and transparent.
Ultra-modern style prevails across Business Bay. Another example is Oberoi Hotel, featuring striking design, or the distinctive crescent shaped Iris Bay building, and the O14 building, known as “cheese grater”, thanks to the unusual white solar façade, designed to protect occupants from the cruel heat in the summer.
