Mumbai, India is about to unveil a gorgeous new skyscraper to the world. Designed by Atkins Design Studio for W Hotel, the Namaste Tower aims to become a landmark structure, representing the burgeoning economic and cultural significance of India. The 62-story, 984-sq-ft tall building, which is currently under construction, will include a hotel, office and retail space.

The traditional Indian greeting of “Namaste,” where the hands are clasped together, is the inspiration for the design of the tower. In Sanskrit “Namaste” means “I bow to you.” It has a spiritual significance of negating one’s ego in the presence of another.

With this idea in mind, the two wings of the hotel are clasped together like hands greeting the city of Mumbai. This is meant to be the ultimate symbol of hospitality and welcome. In addition to all the great symbolism, the buildings exterior features intricate Mehndi patterns through the treatment of the skin.
