Mexican design firm Studio Cachoua Torres Camilletti has designed and developed an ambitious concept that reimagines skyscrapers.
The concept is 92-stories-high and consists of two parts—for housing and for commerce, linked by bridges. The architects also have an unusual plan to install rice paddies on the roof.
One of the architects, Adrian Cachoua Oropeza explained that “the farming on the top of the building is an important symbolic gesture as well as an environmental one,” as rice is a staple in Asian countries.
This idea was submitted for the 2014 World Architecture Festival.
