  3. 3. Case Study on Evolution of Technology
  4. 4. CONSTRUCTION Initially a breakwater is made in the sea and sand is sprayed on it in beds. The sand is sprayed by dredging ships.  Each rock was placed individually by a crane, signed off by a diver and given a GPS coordinate. The Jan De Nul Group started working on the Palm Jebel Ali in 2002 and had finished by the end of 2006. There are approximately 10,000,000 m3 of rocks in the slope protection works.
  5. 5. There are three PALM ISLAND
  6. 6. PALM JUMERIAH  It has a crown with 17 fronds  Dimension: 5 km * 5 km  1400 villas  2500 shoreline apartments
  7. 7. Palm Jebel Ali  50% larger than PALM JUMERIAH  Due to financial crisis price of properties were reduced by 40%
  8. 8. Palm Deira  8 times than PALM JUMERIAH  5 times than PALM JEBEL ALI  Dimension: 14 km to 8.5 km  It has 41 fronds
  9. 9. CAPACITY •Number of lanes •Measured traffic count
  10. 10. World’s 1st flyover : 1842 By : London and Croydon Railway Place : Norwood Junction Railway Station.
  11. 11. A bridge is a structure built to span a valley, road, body of water, or other physical obstacle, for the purpose of providing passage over the obstacle. Designs of bridges vary depending on the function of the bridge and the nature of the terrain where the bridge is constructed. What is a bridge???
  12. 12. •Nineteenth-century Chicago's geography presented unusual requirements. •A narrow river, with low banks, ran through the heart of the city, requiring frequent crossings. •Yet the navigable river was one of the world's great ports, and the low bridges had to accommodate frequent passage of masted ships.
  13. 13. A new type of bridge, the Scherzer rolling lift bridge, was designed in 1894 for the Metropolitan West Side Elevated Railroad and nearby Van Buren Street crossings.
  14. 14. At the beginning of the twenty-first century, the city had 37 operable street drawbridges, including 5 over the Calumet River, opened nearly 30,000 times a year.
  15. 15. Dynamic architecture is a product of architecture which is in motion.
  16. 16. The Dynamic Tower  The Dynamic Tower is also known as Dynamic Architecture building or the Da Vinci Tower.  The Dynamic Tower is a proposed 420-metre (1,378 ft), 80-floor tower in Dubai,United Arab Emirates.  It is under construction.
  17. 17. THE ASTONISHING FEATURES OF THE TOWER.  Uniquely each floor of this tower will be able to rotate independently which will result in constantly changing shape of the tower.  Each floor of the tower is designed to rotate a maximum of 6 meters per minute and 90 minutes per rotation.  The entire tower will be powered from wind turbines and solar panel. Enough surplus electricity should be produced to power five other similar sized buildings in the vicinity.  The total construction time will be more than 30% less than a normal skyscraper of the same size
