BioUrban Generator

By:  | July - 30 - 2010

During the last decade the construction of hundreds of super-tall skyscrapers around the world has been a fierce race among nations to show economic prosperity and geopolitical power. Unfortunately these buildings do not respond to the environmental crisis that our generation is responsible for.

The BioUrban Generator is a proposal by CJ Chen Architects to create net-positive vertical cities that consist of mega skyscrapers equipped with solar, wind, and water collection systems. In addition they propose a series of agricultural terraces attached to the main structure where vertical harvesting, farming, and recreational areas will be located. The building houses a variety of commercial and residential programs that will enrich and transform the host cities.
