Industrial City Skyscraper

By:  | July - 28 - 2010

Russian Architect Kitaev Artem Leonidovich shared with us his vision for a 21st century skyscraper that responds to a specific industrial area in Moscow. His thesis is to erase the preconceived idea of a high-rise building as an extruded crystal prism of repeated floor plates.

Having seen new skyscrapers in China not very different from the ones in Dubai or New York, Kitaev proposes a building that blends into a historic 19th century neighborhood with hundreds of clothing factories. His goal is to solve the housing and commercial requirements while preserving and enriching the existing urban context.
