偉大工程巡禮: 阿爾達總部大樓
7月22日 星期四 @22:00

本集節目將介紹圓形摩天大樓從發想到落實的過程,以及中間必須克服的重重難關。建築團隊必須和時間賽跑,他們只有30個月的時間興建阿爾達的總部,才能趕上2009年10月的目標完工期。他們的業主,阿爾達,希望總部及時落成,迎接阿布達比舉辦的一級方程式大獎賽,這也是阿拉伯聯合大公國有史以來首度主辦這場賽車盛事。但這不是唯一的賭注。在這棟大樓興建的同時,也展開了阿布達比史上最大的建築工程,一座全新的微型城市,阿拉哈海灘。本集節目將說明這座將近6萬噸重的超大建築物如何落成。建築團隊克服了一系列施工上的挑戰,首先是工地位於波斯灣26呎深處,距離海岸有7百呎遠。必須動用3百萬立方公尺的砂石,從海中打造興建阿爾達總部所需要的土地。

【觀後心得】

一個一次又一次的創造超乎想像的驚奇的沙漠中國家阿拉伯聯合大公國-第二大城市阿布達比(Abu Dhabi)! (跳轉國家網站)

Abu Dhabi is located in the United Arab Emirates

阿布達比把這城市當做一個企業來搞,利用"建築"當作整個城市的核心,

更是這城市的資產,雖然很企業化,但也創造了一般公部門不可能創造出的偉大!

而其中阿爾達(Aldar Properties)則是這城市中相當重要推手的企業,

阿爾達總部又是期下一個不可思議的作品,而且…他真的完工了!短短30個月內…

底下是在網路上可以找到的一些’真實圖片’,也參考這個不思義吧~

節目中介紹:這是主結構的兩棟借築物,外面大玻璃圓型帷幕則是"裝飾"

蓋到一半時的景象,此時此刻裡頭的廁所還在外頭設計,以一個單位的方是蓋好從頂樓預留的天井放進去

原型側面的厚度,是讓沙漠中風力聚集的部分,玻璃材質必須加厚!
