Vertical Street / City

By:  | February - 26 - 2010

Project submitted to the 2007 Skyscraper Competition


One of the greatest problems of skyscrapers is to integrate different programs in the same structure. A visual connection between different areas is commonly neglected and there is no interaction between diverse functions. The quality of a horizontal city is the flow between activities and spaces.

The main concept of this skyscraper is to design a true vertical city with horizontal qualities. The idea is to explore the rich fabric of cities like Paris or Amsterdam and transform them into a vertical structure.
