This architectural concept project in NYC aims to address the future challenges of rapid urbanization and sustainability. With the world's population projected to reach almost 10 billion by 2050, and two-thirds living in cities, the need for sustainable high-rise structures is crucial. By proposing the use of Cross Laminated Timber as an alternative material, the design aims to significantly reduce the carbon footprint and provide a visually appealing and eco-friendly solution for future skyscrapers.
The concept proposes the innovative use of Cross Laminated Timber (CLT), a sustainable material grown in nature, to construct the high-rise structure. The honeycomb unit design provides a versatile framework, allowing for optimized floor slabs with different program groups separated by sky parks. The self-sustainable building incorporates vertical farming and wind turbines on the facade, harnessing wind energy and generating food to promote environmental harmony.
Genesis is an architectural concept project located in NY that revolutionizes high-rise construction. Utilizing Cross Laminated Timber, the design focuses on sustainability, reducing CO2 footprints by up to 75%. The honeycomb unit offers a visually appealing and creative experience, while the building's self-sufficiency through vertical farming and wind turbines ensures a harmonious coexistence with the environment.
