2014 Skyscraper Competition
The Hyper Filter Skyscraper recognizes the threat of environmental pollution to Earth. Under today’s levels of pollution, harmful substances spread over hundreds of kilometers and a whole region and even a country could represent a single pollution source.
The Hyper Filter Skyscraper is designed to inhale carbon dioxide and other harmful gases in cities and exhale concentrated oxygen. The skin of the project is made out of long pipe filters that ensure the cleaning process. While clean air is released to the atmosphere, all the harmful substances are stored for use in the chemical industry.
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.
