Keywords:Sky scraper, Skyline,, Sensory Experience, Urban Icon, Perception, World Trade Bahrain Center
Architecture, of all art forms, is bound to influence people's daily lives. The 20th century witnessed brisk urban developments. SKYSCRAPERS have become a new dialect of urbanism, tied to the ideologies of tall buildings, generating a so-called ‘ICON” that stands tall and twisted several times, backed with design principles. This study documents the procedure of conducting a pilot research for a questionnaire-based investigation and fieldwork observation, examining the perception and sensory experience of the people living among the extraordinary superstructure, ‘THE BAHRAIN WORLD TRADE CENTER’ and the factors that leave an impression on their minds and impact their bodily experience, addressing the grandeur, the scale, the place where its located, and the technology or materials that have been used.
