Alternative skyscraper in New York

Alternative skyscraper

In the middle of financial buildings and inhabited towers the Belgian architect Vincent Callebaut is intended to erect an alternative skyscraper. 132 floor complex will be constructed in the south of Roosevelt Island, symbolising necessity of ecological stability. The main accent of this conceptual design — attempt to create completely a self-sufficient organism which processes energy of the sun, wind, water, and also can make food, in the middle of a megacity.

Alternative skyscrapers of the future

The system is concentrated round two basic towers. They are organised symmetrically, grow not only is horizontal, but also vertically, that is important for close Manhattan.

Stunning.
Specially the organic looking elements.
But I doubt it would fit into NY's skyline. ^^
