A Concept Twin-Tower Skyscraper In Hong Kong

A Concept Twin-Tower Skyscraper In Hong Kong | Urbanisme | Scoop.it

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

It's another integration of nature with design but the building looks  a little more like King Kong than Hong Kong

'Breeze': Innovative towers by Riken Yamamoto and Field Shop

'Breeze': Innovative towers by Riken Yamamoto and Field Shop | Urbanisme | Scoop.it
three towers emerge from an undulating topography of artificial hills which encases a 7-storey podium of retail and outdoor promenades.

Japanese practice Riken Yamamoto & Field shop has designed 'breeze', a cluster of three towers for the R2 block of the emerging yongsan international business district in Seoul, Korea. Three 47-storey tall buildings grow from a hilly landscape. The curving facades respond to the geography of the adjacent Han river and create unrestricted vistas of the waterfront. The positions in relation to each other, support cross ventilation and natural daylight.

Skygrove: A Modern Skyscraper is a Testament to Adaptation

Skygrove: A Modern Skyscraper is a Testament to Adaptation | Urbanisme | Scoop.it

As with any civilisation, built environments must be able to adapt. They must adapt to changing cultures, changing landscapes, and now a changing climate – both literally and socially. The construction industry no longer develops with blinkers on, placing industrial gain above the effects a building has on the environment and the economy. A spate of natural disasters around the world has further prompted proactive industry movements which have seen resilience architecture become as much of a priority under a holistically sustainable model.
