Aspire Tower

Aspire tower next to Khalifa Stadium
This futuristic structure was designed to resemble a torch during the Asian Games. During the Games it was indeed a torch, with a ten meter flame blazing at the top of it. Aspire Tower is located within Sports City, by Khalifa Stadium and close to Villagio shopping mall, and at 318 metres is currently the tallest building in Doha.

It also has a special video screen woven into a wire mesh and measuring over 1000 square metres. This wraps around the building and enabled the colourful night-time displays visible throughout the Asian Games.

Aspire Tower’s interior will not be finished until August 2007 and will contain a sports museum, a revolving restaurant, a five star hotel, a swimming pool and an observatory.
