Not a fan of Hong Kong?

Interesting to note that in the 'Eco city', the harbour is further shrunk.

My issue with a lot of these buildings and proposals is that they're not so much designs as extreme applications of new technology. They twist because they can, not because they should.

Yeah, and it seems like they're just toying around. Not really being serious. Idk how half of those would stand in an earthquake, strong winds (tornados, hurricanes, etc.)

This is one of the best threads on SSC . These towers are magnificent and if I could build my own dream city I'll put them all (with few exceptions) in it. Once again amazing thread. I just can't get enough of looking at these futuristic skysrapers...

Some from the city I live in, Birmingham.

The first is the proposed VTP-200, This is a 200m observation tower that has theme park attractions on top along with restraunts and bars. This will most likely get built as the council have had much interest in this and keep asking for diffrent designs.


The second is not a sky scraper however very, very futuristic. The Cube, it is 19 storeys and will be one of the most iconic designs in Birmingham once built. This is my favourite project under construction in Birmingham.




And the final tower is a 152m skyscraper called the V building, this one is approved and will be the tallest building in Birmingham once built.


Oh and here is one that is already built, not a skyscraper however it is the third most photographed building in the UK, Selfridges.

It looks like it was alive! Is it vision or real project?

What do you think about that? Maybe it is not so futuristic but this project is cutting edge for city Wroclaw (Poland)

- 158 m
- 56 floors
- under construction
