Eco-Project Sky-Terra Skyscrapers: Giving the City Back to the People

by Marquette Turner

in Eco-Living, Features

San Francisco-based designer Joanna Borek-Clement has envisioned these eye-popping Sky-Terra skyscrapers – not just a single building, but a network of interconnected towers that are inspired by the shape of neuron cells.

To cope with the growing need for green urban space, as cities become increasingly congested and dense, the Sky-Terra super-structure seeks to give city dwellers back the ability to spend time outdoors, exercise and relax.

Bridging over existing buildings, the Sky-Terra forms a new layer for the city. Built 1,600 ft high above the congestion and pollution of the existing city streets, these plazas can be configured to allow for public parks, greenbelts, playing fields, jogging paths, amphitheaters, pools, and bath houses.

Thus, regardless of the open space that you’d desire, this design – were it ever to be put into practice – would certainly overcome an increasing problem faced by cities throughout the world.

bit of a bummer for the people living/working in the buildings underneath though, yeah?
