The recent Shenzhen Super City Competition in China was won by a unique concept titled “Cloud Citizens” designed in partnership by Urban Future Organization, CR-Design, and Chalmers Technical University. The competition requested a design featuring three towers which would become the centerpiece of Shenzhen’s vibrant business center. Cloud Citizens far exceeded anyone’s expectations. The design uses three towering structures standing at 480 meters, 580 meters, and 680 meters. The buildings uses a building style that in many ways resembles a child’s playful creation of a tower of dominoes, with each level slightly off-center with the previous. This innovative design allows the city to feature massive amounts of green growing areas to create an oxygen rich facility. It also incorporates the ability to capture the wind for both air circulation and energy production.
Cloud Citizens would tower above the city of Shenzhen creating a futuristic look. Now we have to wait and see if this amazing vision becomes reality.
