Gary Haney employs an algorithmic approach to building design in which rule-based frameworks serve as the basis for exploring form in relation to its associated performance. His process incorporates extensive materials research, environmental simulations, and computational scripting to test and challenge the physical, structural, and programmatic parameters of a given project. This research-intensive, performance-driven approach has enabled him to design buildings of great scale and complexity including, most recently, the Al Rajhi Bank Headquarters in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia; the Al Hamra Tower in Kuwait City; and the Al Sharq Tower in Dubai.
