Italian architects Diego D’Agostino and Enrica Papa proposed a skyscraper for low-income inhabitants in developing nations. The building consists of a prefabricated steel frame assembled in stages according to population growth. The housing units are designed using recyclable materials including plastic and cardboard collected at local recycling plants. The main idea is to create highly customizable blocks that could expand according to the number of residents. The tower also includes green terraces for vertical farms and recreational areas.  An interesting aspect of the proposal is its temporality; the building could be dismantled and transported to new areas according to population needs and economic fluctuations.
