Green8 twisted skyscraper by Agnieszka Preibisz and Peter Sandhaus

Green8 twisted skyscraper by Agnieszka Preibisz and Peter Sandhaus | Tracking the Future | Scoop.it

Architects Agnieszka Preibisz and Peter Sandhaus have unveiled a conceptual skyscraper for Berlin with a twisted figure-of-eight structure that curves around elevated gardens and is held up by cables.
Agnieszka Preibisz and Peter Sandhaus, who are both based in Berlin, developed the design to contribute to a new masterplan being put together for the eastern quarter of the city.
"The state of society in the twenty-first century requires that we develop new visions for living in densely populated inner cities," Preibisz told Dezeen. "This process inherently triggers an essential confrontation of material and social values, and so there is a nascent yearning for an architecture that offers a high degree of potential for community."

Modern Eco-Friendly Homes Set Amongst the Trees

Modern Eco-Friendly Homes Set Amongst the Trees | Tracking the Future | Scoop.it

Primeval Symbiosis (Single Pole House) is an architectural design project by architecture student and interior designer Konrad Wójcik that seeks to organically install living spaces in forests without disrupting the innate beauty of nature. Wójcik's detailed presentation lays out the many benefits of this design plan in addition to the actual construction of each residence, which is fit to accommodate for households of two to four people each.
The Denmark-based creative attributes his greatest inspiration for the project as the "functionality and structure of a tree." He says, "Studying its nature allowed me to come up with ideas and solutions to create a completely self-sufficient construction." He goes on to remind people that trees serve a purpose ("For most animals, trees are the best natural shelters against predators, moisture and weather") and deforestation hinders the world from both an ecological standpoint and an environmental one.
The end-goal for this idea is to create a community of these homes in natural landscapes, avoiding massive deforestation, and ultimately leaving a carbon footprint that is as close to zero as possible
