‘Bionic’ Tower, Shanghai – Eloy Celaya

2664579600102347975S600x600Q85

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.

Say what you mean, and mean what you say.

And make some effort to stay on topic.

(Trolling will be moderated. If it isn't entertaining.)
