Skyscraper Recipro-City – Living Structure

Recipro-CityThe skyscraper proposed by S3 Arquitectos was a finalist in the competition. It will be a living structure which will respond to the requirements of both the density and vibrancy of modern city and the tranquillity of a suburban life.

The skyscraper city is designed as a vertical living tree. The mega-structure will have several functional layers similar to those in a city. It was designed by superimposing horizontal and vertical layers to fulfill all the functions of a city.

The transposable elements and layers determine the boundaries of the skyscraper. It will resemble an organic living tree rising from the base. The entire structure from the base to the canopy represents an organism building and creates awareness about the preservation of nature.
