The project combines sustainability with population density and it aims to build up a zero-energy city-building.
Starting from the analyses of the contemporary skyscraper, conceived as a compact element, smooth and alienated from the surrounding space, the project has re-interpreted it in an opened structure, equipped with green areas on
each level, natural light and ventilation. This new interpretation allows its residents to get into an healthier life-style, in connection with natural elements, re-thinking the traditional concept of community and society.
The building’s structure is based on a modular structural prefabricated element, which is repeatable horizontally as well as vertically. The city-building is completely perforated to permit the circulation of air and light on
Each level, hosting green-areas and vertical gardens. Green zones are spread all over the tower, while meeting and social areas are thought for the community life.
