Entry Description

The Dragon Pearl’s design intent is to use a Dragon’s Skin as the main facade screen that wraps around the lattice structure, acting as a solar shading device. It is a unique development in construction that aims to solve many challenges facing the modern world today.
The Dragon Pearl will be designed to the highest safety standards and environmental performance criteria. Use of energy efficient systems and renewable power i.e. solar power, heat recovery systems, own desalination plant, based on Norwegian offshore technology makes the unit self-sustainable with water and carbon neutral.
