Andr矇 Serpa, Bernardo Daupi獺s Alves, Egle Bazaraite, Jutta Rentsch, Marco Braizinha
Portugal
The main idea of this proposal is to create a skyscraper that could be defined as a city by itself. It combines the density and vibrant life of the contemporary city with the tranquility of the suburbs. The central part of the structure is conceived as the city, where offices, commerce, entertainment, and transportation areas will be located. A spiraling system of vertical transportation will communicate all levels without the need of cars. At the edges of the structure the residential units will be located. These units are large and resemble life in suburbia; some of them will even have outdoor gardens overlooking the city.
The Skyscraper structure is made out of a concrete and steel core while the structural skin is primarily steel frames that follow a cell-like pattern that allows for large spans that accommodate the residential units. Larger openings will be used for recreational parks and other recreational areas.
