Project submitted to the 2007 Skyscraper Competition
Designed by: Fernando Castiñeira, Hernan Goldfarb, Alejandro Ispani, Alex Nelken, Javier Maratea, Malena Verni
This project proposes a new type of building for the contemporary metropolis. Instead of constructing another skyscraper it examines the benefits of an underground complex with a central void that introduces light and ventilation to every space.
What will the skyscrapers of the future look like? Will they be covered in gardens, shaped like rocket ships, submerged in the ocean? eVolo Skyscrapers compiles 300 forward-looking projects, like buildings that incorporate robotics or are capable of flying...the next generation of big buildings.
