Abu Dhabi's Helix Hotel Will Feature Glass-Bottom Pool
The design for the Helix Hotel in Abu Dhabi's Zayed Bay have been released. The unique structure from Leeser Architects looks a bit like a stack of toliet seat lids but there is a method to the madness. Inside the building is a continuous spiral with a hollow center. One standout feature is the glass-bottom swimming pool suspended high in the air on the left. The Helix is part of the new waterfront development in Abu Dhabi near Zaha Hadid's striking Sheikh Zayed Bridge. Check out the rest of the renderings here.
