why "art code" ?

In architecture, the facade of a building is often the most important from a design standpoint, as it sets the tone for the rest of the building.

Capital Gate at abu dhabi

A 160-metre tall, 35-storey known as Super Elite skyscraper.
The Guinness Book of World Records certified Capital Gate as the “World’s furthest leaning man-made tower.” Link to Capital Gate 3D Animation here 
The new record shows that the Capital Gate tower has been built to lean 18 degrees westwards; more than four times that of the world-famous Leaning Tower of Pisa. 
The gravitational pressure caused by the 18-degree incline is countered by the world’s first “pre-cambered core”; a technique that utilizes 15,000 cubic meters of concrete reinforced with 10,000 tons of steel with the core deliberately built slightly off-center.

Capital Gate is also anchored to the Earth by 490 piles which are drilled over 30m deep.
