I know they're not exactly right, I just guessed everything from the renders and one of the towers is even facing the wrong way






I'm sure these towers will make for some great photos once built.

the lifts could be positioned somewhere so they won't have to go up diagonally...

Nope, read back through the thread and you'll find my suggestion on how it should work with normal elevator shafts

No way. Already in 1980ies Riga TV tower got elevators with changing vector of movement (and not the first ones in world). Have used it - you don't notice even the diagonal movement - although elevator is very fast.

Amazing! Kind of 'living architecture'...
Like one day you get up earl in the morning and you think to yourself: 'Are they still the same? Wasn't it the otherone who was benching to the left yesterday?' Really borderbreaking architecture!

Thats such a god point Nout!

Gatis, you also make a really good point. I wasnt aware that there were elevators with changing vector of movement although it doesnt seem very unreasonable after considering the tech difficulties would not be that hard to overcome.
