Floating Light Park Skyscraper Uses Solar Power & Helium to Hover Above Beijing

Floating Light Park Skyscraper Uses Solar Power & Helium to Hover Above Beijing | HINGOL NATIONAL PARK! | Scoop.it

Light Park is a skyscraper that hovers over the streets of Beijing like a giant airship. Architects Ting Xu and Yiming Chen have conceived the future of high-rises to be a conglomerate of mega-structures that make up for the shortage of urban open spaces on the ground by lifting them up in the air.

 

The Light Park skyscraper is lifted off the ground with a helium-filled balloon, and it uses solar energy for propulsion, enabling it to function as a non-polluting transportation deck as well as a floating urban park. The technology is based on existing helium balloon designs, using solar-powered propellers, airbags and atmospheric pressure for takeoff and cruise flight. Solar power is utilized to power the uses below, with translucent solar panels located on the top of the aircraft. In order to avoid additional weight and decrease wind resistance, the skyscraper uses a cable-suspended structure to attach the slabs to the mushroom-like cap. The planting slabs are irrigated with rainwater collected on the large cap surface and are distributed in a way which allows maximum exposure to sunlight on each level...

Given what we know about climate change, one might expect to see a drop or leveling-off of global carbon output. In reality though, it's gotten worse. Much worse.

Actually there ARE certain organizations in Pak that are working for wildlife conservation, like WWF, IUCN, World Society for Protection of Animals... Zoological Survey department, Sindh Wildlife Department =) and many more. Presently, ppl are getting more aware with their surroundings and so, there is quite a hope that more such organisations will be founded in the near future. =)

I do notice that there are not many "bright" bottles in this wall, either. I find that local bars and restaurants will save them when asked, as long as they are picked-up each week.

Margalla Hills have the potential to be developed as an eco-tourist spot but they're facing many threats! like forest fires and deforestation.
