Bahrain World Trade Centre

Bahrain World Trade Centre

Architect Shaun Killa, head designer of Atkins Middle East, is the recipient of global praise for his work in creating the world’s first wind-powered building. The South African born graduated from the University of Cape Town, has become the face of sustainable building design for his new and innovative approach to energy saving.

The royal court in Bahrain had requested that Atkins Middle East, come up with a design to expand a 25-year-old shopping centre. Killa’s innovative thinking, gave birth to the now internationally renowned Bahrain World Trade Centre.

It uses wind power to reduce energy consumption and has three 275kw turbines that produce a total of 700kw. Standing 240m tall, the twin-tower complex serves as the world’s largest integration, of electricity-generating turbines in building design. The Bahrain skyscraper has won several awards, including the Leed Platinum Award, and an American rating for green buildings.
