???? | (a)Spire Tower | 1000m | 3281ft | ??? | Pro

(a)Spire Tower

Designers: Skidmore, Owings & Merrill

© Skidmore, Owings & Merrill
The concept of a structural core with cantilevered floor plates is by no means new, but extrapolating that technology to create high-rise towers is the focus of SOM’s research. Shown here is the 3,281-foot-tall a(Spire) Tower.

(a)Spire Tower is a proposed and designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill. So far not to disclose the place where the skyscraper would be located, the only thing that is known is that would be somewhere in the desert.

The building will measure 3281 feet high and is not known so far will have few floors.

This skyscraper is part of the "Tree Trunk Towers" along with two other buildings elsewhere. (Designed by by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill)

The 110-story Fluidic Tower in Seoul, South Korea.

The 25-story tall Takshing House Redevelopment in Hong Kong.

This looks very interesting. It looks to be something similar to Changsha Sky City. A new revolutionary technique that will either bring a breakthrough into the world of skyscrapers or will stay forever on paper and be forgotten

As to the location of the km tower, I hope it will be in Phoenix or in Las Vegas
