something like this....



and we can build as high as we want!

the problem is , i read this related to burj dubai, that the cables to carry the materials up, are too heavy for the cranes, if they exceed a certain height.

hmmm.. about cranes reaching that height... they could use the same technique used in the twisting torso high rise designed by santiago calatrava... they build a floor a day... with a climbing platform much like how a koala bear would climb a tree. the only problem they encountered is the wind speeds in high altitudes which sometimes makes it too cold to work... they also had the ocassional breaking down of the cement pump... anything else was routinary... yeah... this is possible... you better believe it..

WHat is this koala bear you talk of? some sort of species similer to the koala?
:p

Yeah if you did that style it could work, it's all about money, and wind.
Cranes cannot be too tall due to winds, and making the payload swing about, so you kind of need 'rest stops' for all the stuff going up or down, with cranes swapping over the goods so the 1km cable dosn't smash all the glass on the lower floors.

all these 1km high things are such a waste of time...who in their right mind would want to work/live or do anything at even 600m...let alone any higher...yeh i know we all about buildings, but for god sake this is all getting rather pathetic

about the living up in the sky.. yeah you have a point.. but this is tokyo we're talking about... one of the most dense if not the most dense country city in the world... in this part of the globe, you really have no choice but to build vertically, either upwards or downwards, to provide for the future...
