The world's tallest building coming to Iraq will be entirely solar-powered

AMBS describes the Bride as “the first vertical city in the world.” The Bride will fill its 5,088,280 square feet of floor space with offices, hotels, residential units, commercial space, parks and gardens. “It will be enjoyed by thousands of people in endless ways, within it, on it or under it,” says AMBS. “From walking in the vast shaded parks and promenades at ground level, to having lunch or shopping in a sky-square hundreds of metres above sea level.” AMBS maintains offices in London and Baghdad and also designed the first public library built in Iraq since the 1970s.
