The Bahrain World Trade Center (also known as: Bahrain WTC or BWTC) is a 240 m (787 ft) high twin tower complex by South African architect Shaun Killa, located in Manama, Bahrain. The building is the first skyscraper in the world to integrate wind turbines into its design.
The 50-floor structure is constructed next to the King Faisal Highway, close to popular landmarks such as the towers of BFH, NBB, Abraj Al Lulu and the scenic Pearl Roundabout. It is the second tallest building in Bahrain, after the twin towers of the Bahrain Financial Harbor. The project of the building has received several awards for sustainability, including;
1. The 2006 LEAF Awards for ‘Best Use of Technology within a Large Scheme’.
2. The Arab Construction World for ‘Sustainable Design Award’.
