These creative and also provocative ideas, provide insights into the issue of land scarcity and urban farming!
The design of the floating platforms for the building on the water, not only focuses on its function but is also interesting in hexagon visual composition. The buildings above the platforms can accommodate various people's activities. The configuration allows the best view and visibility for the user to the surrounding environment. The subtropical climate is an aspect that shall be considered when focusing on the detailed plan of the open spaces and circulation corridors.
The new skyscrapers on the mountain are well-planned. One of the advantages is the vertical building configuration that is connected by many open sky corridors. Compact vertical mass arrangement and has specific modules. The modules are effective and efficient for vertical building, as well as during the implementation of the development process. In addition, as an urban area, these design ideas can accommodate urban activities with lots of open public spaces included vertical urban farming. The next important thing to consider is the load calculation of the structure with its mass in vertical (live load, dead load, and structural load) loads; horizontal forces (wind forces, earthquakes, and landslides).
Keep up the creative ideas!
