Panit Limpiti, a student from Thailand, has designed the “Permaculture Floating Tower,” a skyscraper to be located in Omval, Amsterdam that will cater to the region’s worst-case-scenario situation: a flood.
The area above sea level in the Omval zone is quickly decreasing. With the ability to withstand high water levels, and through the design of a floating landscape, this building will stand strong, no matter the weather forecast.
The building will utilize desalination to create drinking water, and will harness wave energy. A bio-digester cooks gas to also produce energy. Bio-diesel is also produced on site. The building is comprised of residential units and an urban park.
To commemorate the 9th Annual Skyscraper Competition, eVolo is publishing the Limited Edition Book "eVolo Skyscrapers 2" which is the follow-up to its highly acclaimed book “eVolo Skyscrapers”. The 628-page book examines 150 projects received during the last years of the competition. Only 1000 copies are available worldwide.
