Is that a real proposal or just a vision? Have never seen it.

No? I have even read about it in a magazine. It was a real proposal, but I think the chances of being built are low!!!

Well, from what I read some (very much time) ago in PM magazine, it was a serious proposal for London. But it the article said it was not very possible to build it, since at least 20% of it had to be rented or sold before construction, maybe it was not possible to sell or rent as much of the building! What a pity!!!

here some other pics about the tower







* Citygate Ecotower is designed to be the most environmentally friendly skyscraper on earth with a low energy footprint thanks to the natural stack effect ventilation and photo-voltiac panels on the cladding.

Look at this London proposal I found! It's called the green bird tower and was to be 442m tall. I won't give my opinions on why this was never built

The image I found on the net:


And I thought torre agbar was bad

I'm afraid it was me who "proposed" the Toronto ROM condo.... but thanks for the props!

I made it up before an official render was released for the site. Interestingly, the actual condo (though much more restrained than my invention) shares some simillarities (shards). I think is quite elegant... it's the tower in the BOTTOM LEFT, attached to the Libeskind Crystal (u/c).
