A Concept ‘Vertical City’ Skyscraper That Supports An Ecosystem
By Tay Xing Wei, 15 Aug 2014
London-based design and academic research architecture practice SURE Architecture has designed and developed a concept skyscraper with multiple functions.
Called ‘Endless City’, the organic skyscraper is built around six steel tubes with an “endless” ramp that goes around the building from the ground floor, all the way up to the top.
It also features energy-saving and waste management elements that give the building another purpose—supporting an ecosystem. Plazas and communal spaces will occupy most parts of the skyscraper.
According to the architects, the shape of the skyscraper “attempts to maximize passive energy and reduce artificial lighting and ventilation”.
This concept won the first prize at the SkyScrapers & SuperSkyscraper Competition.
