HONG KONG | Bionic Tower | 1228m | 4029ft | 300 fl | Vision

I'm sure there is already a thread somewhere here already,and for that I apologize in advance. I just saw this on skyscrapers.cn, how for real is this? It looks amazing.

It's just a vision, nothing more. So i wouldn't take it serious.

Thanks. It would be great if it actually went through, but "visions" seem to rarely become reality.

maybe it's a vision but technical you can build such a tower. today it's no problem to build 1000m or more.

It was a real proposal made in 1998, the architects showed it to the town halls of Hong Kong and Shanghai and they were interested but not enough to build it. It really wasn't a building design proposal, what the architects proposed was a new kind of structure and a new way the skyscrapers will work, and they said it could reach up to 1228 metres and 300 floors, but it could be shorter and with a different design.
