Don't get your hopes up too high though. It's a vision for yr 2042 I think, not any project that will be initiated soon ... unfortunately ... the way I see it, these kinds of projects could close to fund themselves with the increase in tourism you'd get.

Those sketches and 3D renders really look like it's purely VFX artists' fantasies. They have no connection to architecture or urban planning. Sorry for being straightforward. It's just my opinion, I don't know how much symbolism they've put into the 100m "steps" and half-a-kilometer hexagon fences.

It is a real proposal by an architectural firm. Which is basically the professional equivalent of "Guys, wouldn't it be wicked cool of Tokyo built this?".

Its chance of being built as shown is very, very close to zero.

That's a pretty ambitious concept, even 30 years in the future. My money is on this project not happening.

I agree, I would be surprised if this is built. But at the same time, I want this to be built.

[QUOTE=DubaiM;130594820]Here's the render again for everybody who's too lazy to click on the link It looks like a vision to me though. I mean, come on: Building a 1700m tower is one thing, but building it on water?? wtf?

That is one of a kind project.

This project will never happen, it's just a vision. A fantasy project.

Wow never seen this one before. Too bad Japan is a developed country that doesn't just rely on selling oil and forcing workers to build their towers for free, so it won't happen

Alot of vision projects were planned for Tokyo, notably The Millennium Tower which has the same height as The Burj Khalifa.

But were never built!
