This building reminds me of one of those cancelled utopic Japanese megaprojects from the 80s.

I prefer THAT one over Sky City ANYTIME, especially as tallest building in the world.

And what's the name of that proposed building? Looks REALLY nice.

Burj Khalifa is just 3 skinny little lobes sticking out of the core. That thing is massive vertical city. Practically an arcology.

Burj Kalif Not an Arcology

According to Wikipedia, arcology is a set of architectural design principles for enormous habitats (hyperstructures) of extremely high human population density.
How can Burj Khalifa be an arcology when it doesn’t even have a sewage system to support even a low population density

I just hope this gets resolved asap, although a dense fog of doubt is still floating arround this project as a whole

It can't, that's why I compared Aeropolis to one, and not Burj Khalifa.

Besides, I have friends over there who say that that's pretty much debunked by now. Was it an issue at some time probably a few years ago? I'd imagine likely. But from what I hear the capacity that was being added is now online and sewage isn't as much of an issue today.

Either way as large as BK is, I wouldn't call it an arcology either .

Anyway back to OT. Go Sky City go!

I normally don't like quoting pictures, but this looks freaking amazing! Absolutely stunning! It's too bad the Japanese economic bubble burst when it did, or at least some of these projects might actually have gotten into planning and development instead of remaining visions.

Though from a practical standpoint, I don't know how they could have gotten away with building a 2km tall structure in a highly active seismic zone. Still, this is a very cool vision. Sky City might be more practical, but it also looks way, way more dumpy in comparison (even if it is a neat idea).

It had the most awesome statistics too, Apperently it would have 140 000 people living in it and a maximum capacity of some 300 000
,thats 10 times more than Changsha sky city. And the size of a largish sized city
