Located along the Vistula River in Warsaw, Poland, the Mixer Skyscraper is a mixed-use structure connected to the city’s maritime and road networks. The building consists of a steel exoskeleton where small prefabricated structures could be plugged-in during different construction phases – according to new requirements. A vertical spine contains public programs such as theaters, restaurants, museums, or shopping malls while a swiping structure that resembles a wave is used for housing and offices.

Its green systems include photovoltaic panels, wind turbines, water recollection and treatment plants, natural ventilation systems, and a photosynthesizing glass facade that produces bio-energy.
