Here we go with some of the weirdest and yet technologically advanced architectural concepts that are sure to awe you.
1. Drone Hive
HadeelAyed Mohammed, YifengZao and Chengda Zhu conceived a skyscraper with a living facade built from a hive of drones. The demand for a high-speed drone delivery is on the rise they say though the spread of its popularity among all is facing a legal embargo.There is a high chance that New York’s drones swarming in millions and clustering horizontally around this tall structure that would be a monument animated with a perpetual hum as the vehicles arrive and leave the cluster for their regular chores.
- Data skyscraper sustainable datacentre in Iceland
Iceland has elevated itself to a state of attractive datacentre and a coveted server location for its stringent data regulations and it is more or less equidistant from the major European countries and the US. The annual global IP traffic is set to travel through around one billion tetra-bytes by the close of this year and there is even a larger space for rising demand for supporting infrastructure. The system will work on environment friendly and renewable energy source as there is a notion that data centers consume a lot of energy and Iceland’s low temperatures would keep the datacentre efficiently operative.
- Air monument,Atmosphere database
As an answer to the issue of climate fluctuations, the designers have come out with a bizarre and yet unique idea that the skyscrapers be borne aloft and stay floating amid clouds. This will enable the centers for collection of atmospheric samples directly from the clouds to study and interpret the climatic conditions and changes for the future. The building eventually turns into a massive data archive up in the air monitoring greenhouse gases and atmospheric alterations.
- Himalaya water tower
Construction of a water tower up in the Himalayas has its merits. During the monsoon rains, the long pipes will collect water and conserve in a reservoir for future use. This will balance the flow and availability of water throughout the year. This is an immensely user friendly project and the users,a majority of whom are the farmers will get their share of water for irrigation.
- Coal power plant mutation
This building is constructed on the top of factories covering mainly the exit points of effluent gases. The design concept envisages huge legs projecting out from the base and connecting to the plants’ chimneys through which filtered gases are carried upwards through a 1000-meter length to be ultimately released into the air. LED lights installed outside will test the quality and character of air affected by effluent gases.
- Airport skyscraper
This is really something startling and reminds us indeed we are into the space-age. Airports take care of the landing and takeoff of aircrafts. They naturally consume huge land areas for being constructed. So why not build them in the air itself leaving the ground for other modes of transport to ply? Vertical air buses would make an airport 450 meter up in the air accessible to the ground passengers.
- Global cooling sky-scraper
Aiming to fight global warming, this unique venture of Paulo Venturella Architecture Italy would be a fantastic skyscraper extending into space. A unique concept just unimaginable! The skyscraper will create a barrier between the earth and the sun creating a massive greenhouse. This will enable generation of air to cool the earth and provide clean energy.
- Urban Earth Worm
An amazing green sky-scraper, envisaged by the South Korean designer Lee Seungsoo, this tubular building will clean up the air and soil providing a healthy environment for the urban residents. Just like earthworm helps in tilling the soil, this unique building also holds special sections supporting plant growth and biomass generation for soil replenishment and electricity generation.
Providing unique dwelling in a greener planet is the main objective of the future builders who are envisaging awe inspiring designs of skyscrapers to be admired for generations.
