World Trade Centre, Bahrain
Standing tall in the ever-changing Manama skyline, the Bahrain World Trade Centre continues to push boundaries and lead by example.
Completed in 2008, and located in the heart of the Kingdom of Bahrain’s financial diplomatic district, the 240 metre (787 ft) 50-floor twin-tower megastructure is an iconic emblem of Bahrain’s modernisation over the last 15 years, showcasing the latest advancements in engineering and technology.
Seemingly not content with being the first skyscraper in the world to integrate wind turbines into its design, they then raised the bar further in 2013 when a decision was made to revamp the facade on the building.
Situated at a key location on the King Faisal Highway, the building is clearly visible on the approach from the airport in the north, and sits on the key artery which links the north of the island to the south, being seen by hundreds of thousands of people every day.
