Majlis Al Midfaa - Windtower

Seen from the chimney below.

The base of the tower descends to just above head height in the room below, concentrating the airflow in into the lower part of it, cooling and improving the internal comfort.

Windtowers are an architectural element used in many countries around the Arabian Gulf.

The round shape of the Majlis Al Midfaa windtower is unique for the UAE.
