The masonry of both predecessor buildings was integrated in the current triangular Renaissance castle. The Wewelsburg was taken several times during the Thirty Years' War.
In it was occupied and then razed by Swedish troops,  by the army commanded by General Carl Gustav Wrangel. After , the mostly destroyed castle was rebuilt by Prince-Bishop Theodor Adolf von der Recke and his successor Ferdinand von Fürstenberg.
He carried out some architectural changes; the three towers of the castle got their baroque domes. From to , the castle was the place of residence of a bursary officer or steward.
During the Seven Years' War — , the basement rooms were probably used as a military prison. During the 18th and 19th centuries, the castle fell progressively into ruin.
In , during German mediatisation the castle came into the possession of the Prussian state. On 11 January , the North Tower was gutted by a fire that was started by a lightning strike; only the outer walls remained.
From to , a rectory existed in the eastern part of the south wing of the castle. In , the castle became the property of the district of Büren and was changed into a cultural center.
By , the castle had been renovated into a local museum, banquet hall, restaurant and youth hostel. After , the renovation activities decreased.
In , the local head of the district authority Landrat ordered about seventy members of the Freiwilliger Arbeitsdienst FAD , voluntary labour service , to be housed at the Wewelsburg.
They were unemployed and supported by the state as Notstandsarbeiter literally: "crisis workers". Through the rent, the district of Büren thus hoped to recoup some of the running costs of the castle.
However, in early , negotiations to set up a full-sized camp for FAD participants failed. Prior to the Nazi party taking power, Heinrich Himmler , as leader of the SS, had decided that the organization should have a retreat at a castle "in the heartland of Hermann der Cherusker" Armin the Cheruscian.
Himmler decided to buy or lease the castle on his first visit on 3 November His architect, Hermann Bartels was able to draw on existing plans for the FAD camp, for the now envisaged Reichsführerschule SS SS Leadership School.
This school was mainly intended to ensure a unified ideological training of the SS leadership and would be run by the Rasseamt of the SS.
Negotiations were difficult, however, since the Landrat of Büren was unwilling to give up control of the castle.
In the first half of , a year lease was agreed for the symbolic annual rent of 1 Reichsmark. Initial work on the school by the FAD had started in January Himmler officially took over the Wewelsburg in a large ceremony on 22 September The Völkischer Beobachter , in reporting on the event, while mentioning the Germanic and historic past of the region, emphasized the educational aspects.
In , Himmler announced that the SS-castle was to be officially called "SS-Schule Haus Wewelsburg" "SS School, House Wewelsburg".
There is some speculation that it was Karl Maria Wiligut who convinced Himmler to use the castle not only as a school but also as a cult site; Wiligut allegedly was inspired by the old Westphalian legend of the "Battle at the Birch Tree" Schlacht am Birkenbaum.
The saga tells about a future "last battle at the birch tree", in which a "huge army from the East" is beaten decisively by the "West".
During , Wiligut reportedly predicted to Himmler that the Wewelsburg would be the "bastion". Himmler expected a big conflict between Asia and Europe.
Knobelsdorf led the "SS School, House Wewelsburg". But very quickly the focus of activity shifted away from schooling the SS leadership in a broad set of ideological fields to something much narrower.
In fact, work concentrated more on conducting basic pseudo-scientific research in the fields of Germanic pre- and early history, medieval history, folklore and genealogy Sippenforschung , all intended to provide the underpinnings for the racial teachings of the SS.
A scientific library was established. But even the first plans by Bartels from early did not show any large-scale class rooms, only smaller cell-like rooms for individual study.
Among those active at the Wewelsburg was Wilhelm Teudt. Wewelsburg castle was also a centre for archaeological excavations in the region.
Fields of activity included study of prehistory and ancient history directed by Wilhelm Jordan, who led excavations in the region , study of medieval history and folklife directed by Karlernst Lasch from March , build-up of the "Library of the Schutzstaffel in Wewelsburg" directed by Dr.
Hans Peter des Coudres , and strengthening the National Socialist worldview in the village of Wewelsburg directed by Walter Franzius. This latter activity included such work as renovation of a timbered house in the center of the village of Wewelsburg — the " Ottens Hof " — between and for use as a village community center.
Franzius also undertook various other architectural tasks. The castle crew consisted of members of all SS branches, the "General SS" " Allgemeine SS " , the police and the "Armed SS" " Waffen SS ".
Himmler, for example, adapted the idea of the Grail to create a heathen mystery for the SS. No proof exists that Himmler wanted a Grail castle, but redesign of the castle by the SS referred to certain characters in the legends of the Grail: for example, one of the arranged study rooms was named Gral " Grail " , and others, König Artus " King Arthur " , König Heinrich "King Henry" , Heinrich der Löwe " Henry the Lion " , Widukind , Christoph Kolumbus " Christopher Columbus " , Arier "Aryan" , Jahrlauf "course of the seasons" , Runen " runes " , Westfalen " Westphalia " , Deutscher Orden " Teutonic Order " , Reichsführerzimmer "Room of the Empires Leader s "; "Reichsführer-SS", or "the Reich's Leader of the SS" was Himmler's title , Fridericus probably in reference to Frederick II of Prussia , tolle Christian probably referring to Christian the Younger of Brunswick, Bishop of Halberstadt , and Deutsche Sprache "German language".
In addition to these study rooms, the SS created guest rooms, a dining room, an auditorium, a canteen kitchen, and a photographic laboratory with an archive.
Oak was used to panel and furnish these rooms, though according to contemporary witnesses only sparingly. All interior decoration was shaped by an SS sensibility in art and culture; the preferred elements of design were based on runes, swastikas , and Germanically interpreted Sinnzeichen sense characters.
From , the castle was also furnished with miscellaneous objects of art,  including prehistoric objects chiefly arranged by the teaching and research group Das Ahnenerbe , objects of past historical eras, and works of contemporary sculptors and painters mainly works by such artists as Karl Diebitsch , Wolfgang Willrich , and Hans Lohbeck — that is, art in line with the aesthetics of National Socialism.
In , the eastern castle bridge was built and the castle moat lowered. The exterior plaster was removed to make the building look more castle-like.
The following year, a smithy was established on the ground floor of the North Tower for manufacture of the wrought-iron interior decoration of the castle.
The first new building, the guardhouse Wachgebäude , was constructed next to the castle  in An SS sentry post and a small circular location Rondell were placed next to the guardhouse, as was a no longer extant SS staff building SS-Stabsgebäude.
The North Tower was strengthened and rebuilt between and The first commandant of the castle Burghauptmann von Wewelsburg , from August , was Obersturmbannführer Lieutenant Colonel Manfred von Knobelsdorff.
The opinion of other SS-scientists about Wiligut were absolutely negative. SS Obersturmbannfuhrer Knobelsdorff was succeeded by Siegfried Taubert on 30 January Because Taubert was consigned to various other tasks he was absent from the castle for longer periods.
Since , Himmler who was often present at the castle wanted more and more to expand the Wewelsburg to be a representative and ideological center of the SS Order.
Consequently, although at first planned to be an educational training center, during the s increasing measures were taken to transform the castle into an isolated central meeting place for the highest ranking SS-officers.
For financing the project, Himmler founded in the "Gesellschaft zur Förderung und Pflege deutscher Kulturdenkmäler e. The enabling works are expected to begin before the end of and take about 10 months to complete.
The team will be providing project, commercial and design management for the Jeddah Tower development. On the other hand, EC Harris also has a long list of projects in the region including the Grand Millenium Al-Wahda Hotel, Abu Dhabi 's largest hotel complex.
On 29 April , news was reported that the Saudi Water Company had signed a 2. The year agreement to supply , cubic metres of treated and drinking water a day, enough for 62 Olympic-size pools, was signed by the chief executive of the Jeddah-based developer, Waleed Batraji, and Loay al-Musallam, head of National Water Company.
Construction started on 1 April Construction of the tower continued,  although some senior managers at Kingdom Holding were redirected to other projects.
In March , Kingdom Holding Company signed a deal with Orange Business Services to provide information and communication technology ICT infrastructure to Jeddah Tower.
JEC said that they planned to restart construction in Sustainability of such a tall building would include issues such as vertical transportation limitations, with elevators only being able to go so far; building sway, caused by wind; and super column settling, which occurs because concrete tends to shrink as it hydrates and settles under load, whereas steel is dimensionally stable, thereby causing the floors to become uneven.
The core size consumes a significant amount of the space on the lower and middle floors. This was determined by wind tunnel tests performed at Burj Khalifa.
Jeddah Tower will also use copious stiffening materials to prevent the excessive sway that would otherwise make the occupants of upper floors nauseated on windy days,  including very high strength concrete that will be up to several metres thick in certain parts of the core.
This, along with the highly integrated steel frame and shear walls , is also intended to prevent catastrophic failure of the structure in the event of a terrorist attack.
More recently, it has been the advent of truly mixed-use design such as Shanghai Tower and Burj Khalifa, as well as improved building technology, that have outdated this rule of thumb, which generally applied to single use buildings.
Like Burj Khalifa, Jeddah employs a similar Y-shaped, triangular footprint which promotes stability  and increases window views,  as well as a tapering form,  with the sheer height and wind being the biggest structural design challenge.
At Jeddah Tower's height, it is considered essentially unfeasible to use a traditional square design. The triangular footprint and sloped exterior of Jeddah Tower is designed to reduce wind loads ; its high surface area also makes it ideal for residential use.
The elevators are made by the Finnish company Kone. There is also significantly more air flow wind at heights, which is very strong at one kilometre and had a large impact on the structural design of the tower.
To overcome elevator issues, the tower will use its large number of efficient elevators as well as its three sky lobbies , which allows transfers to be made between elevators serving a specific area with no elevator being overburdened.
Much was learned from Burj Khalifa that helped with the design of Jeddah Tower  not only structurally, but in methods for designing practical mechanical, electrical, and plumbing MEP systems, as well as adhering to local regulations and international building codes.
Chicago-based  Environmental Systems Design, Inc. In addition to its primary functions, the building is slated to include a significant amount of retail as well as a wide variety of other unique amenities with the intention that it functions as a nearly self-sustaining entity, approaching the concept of a " vertical city ".
Over that, it may be possible if there are improvements in concrete quality. There is an impending real estate boom in Saudi Arabia, with increasing demand and rising prices due to high population growth and a short supply of housing, which may include a demand for high-end luxury units, such as those in Jeddah Tower.
Furthermore, economists have found large new skyscrapers to be a negative economic indicator,  with several instances of new tallest buildings being finished and opening into a bad economy,  as they generally start during a financial boom when money is easy and investment is strong, but do not finish until the bubble has burst.
Examples include the Singer Building and Metropolitan Life Insurance Building after the Panic of , 40 Wall Street , the Chrysler Building and the Empire State Building built during the Great Depression , the World Trade Center and Sears Tower built during the s economic downturn, the Petronas Towers built during the Asian Crisis of the late s and the Burj Khalifa built during the Great Recession.
The developers' theory is that the international attention gained through large developments and having the world's tallest building will incur gentrification of the country  and even be a financial success in the long run.
Architect Adrian Smith, the designer of the tower, states, " It represents new growth and high-performance technology fused into one powerful iconic form.
It has a political depth to it to tell the world that we Saudis invest in our country. Alain Robert , also known as the French Spiderman, expressed his willingness to climb Jeddah Tower after completion if he were given official approval, despite the fact that he would be into his sixties.
When he heard that it might be up to 1, metres, he said, "That doesn't make much sense," but he said that if the height were 1, metres, then it would be achievable.
It is estimated that the Jeddah Tower will have just over floors. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Redirected from Kingdom Tower. It is not to be confused with Jeddah TV Tower , Kingdom Centre , or The Illinois.
