Modernism

 
One of the city's famous buildings - The National Bank of Abu Dhabi Headquarters which according to emporis.com has a unique double tower structure in pyramidal cross section with inversely reflected triangular peaks. The pyramidal shape is repeated at the ground level with one vertex acting as a support point giving way to a grandiose entrance - Cool!
