Finalist – 2010 Skyscraper Competition
Karim Hassayoune, Aude Morgenthaler
The Meta-Tower is a skyscraper that grows by slowly stacking projects over the years. It consists of an open structure in which architects plug in buildings according to current economic, social, and cultural conditions. The idea is to create a building with a series of layers that represent a specific moment in time while testing new architectural problems and solutions.
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.
