Symbiotic City

Symbiotic City


This skyscraper forms a symbiotic relationship with the existing city; collecting water, sunlight (energy) and distributes it to the grid. Its material is lightweight and renewable and the structure is designed to last a temporary measure of time. Evolutionary computation will capture the site as a complex multi-dimensional interaction of bodies and will evaluate solutions based on the needs of the district as a whole.

The new skyscraper not only provides tenure for single uses, but incorporates cultural aspects such as theatres, galleries, and restaurants. The structural shape maximizes the efficiency based on more renewable materials, particularly variations on bamboo, graphite, and new plastics. The use of evolutionary design and computation maximize efficiency in space and light distribution.
