The not-yet-begun construction project will top out at just under 2,750 feet. And it'll only take seven months to complete.
Like Apple's iconic cube-shaped Fifth Avenue store, Santambrogio's cube house overdoses on the glass with style. That's not the only striking feature of this glass house: it's got glass stairs, glass furniture and lots of glassware inside. Better be careful!
Dubai's Burj Khalifa is about to get dethroned as the world's tallest building by early 2013. A Chinese company called BSB that specializes in erecting pre-fabricated buildings will begin construction on the 838-meter tall Sky City in Changsa, China in what will be a record 90 days.
This little house is a unique art installation called "Fallen Star." It's got everything we'd want to look at — a perky, picket fence dream home that just happens todefy gravity. What's even more fun is its perfectly ironic location, the side of the Jacobs School of Engineering at the University of California in San Diego.
When you're loaded with cash, you don't question things. Take this 30-story high-rise concept shaped liked an ohm (Ω) and its balconies that double as glass pools. It's completely over the top lavish and our only regret is that we'll probably never be able to afford a stay here.
Last year's Evolo Skyscraper competition brought us such crazy conceptual buildings as the Ferris Wheel recycling center and the lightning bolt harvesting Hydra tower, and the 2012 competition has taken that nuttiness, cracked it open, and injected a gigantic extra helping of nuts right in the center.
Last year's massive quake in Japan reminded us all just how destructive an earthquake can be. To prepare for the next one, Japanese engineers are coming up with all kinds of new ways to protect vulnerable buildings.
You won't believe your eyes as you watch this 30-story tall, 183,000 square foot hotel in China rise from ground to completion in just 15 days!
When you live in zero gravity, the differences between walls, ceilings, and floors is irrelevant, because unlike on Earth, every surface can be fully utilized. But when you try to recreate that scenario in an environment bound by gravity, you're bound to run into a few problems.
This is not a concept. Repeat, this structure is not a concept. Okay, maybe it is right now, but it's a concept tower that is actually going to see the light of day. Taiwan's planning to build a 984-foot tower called the Taiwan Tower in Taichung — making it the tallest structure in that city.
