‘Bionic’ Tower, Shanghai – Eloy Celaya


By “bionic” is meant studying the “structures and processes in biological phenomena” to “develop, perfect and humanise” man’s environment. (What, in a less high falutin’ way, we used to call “learning from nature.”)

The Shanghai Tower project is conceived as a “vertical city” for up to 100,000 inhabitants distributed through twelve vertical “neighbourhoods” of 80m each, surrounded by a “"Base Island"  of 1000m diameter.

More information here at the promoters’ site, and here at a collection of twelve “bionic” buildings including this one.
