Finalist – 2010 Skyscraper Competition
Meurisse Frederic, Huyghe Lieselotte
The main idea of this project is to create a green ribbon of parks and recreational areas that will connect the Vincennes and the Boulogne forests – the two major lungs of Paris. The ribbon will be equipped with a series of skyscrapers that will inject programs to the city. Some of them will be used as housing while others will have museums or restaurants. Its triangulated steel structure is a three dimensional network of voids and surfaces inspired by the Origami pleating game.
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.
