15 futuristic skyscrapers of the future




15 futuristic skyscrapers of the future

Close “boxes” in which we live, at best suggestive of the homes of the “Vertical World” by Robert Silverberg. To say that everyone is satisfied with such a plan – to say nothing. What might be, or may well be the skyscrapers of the future? Let’s look at the most interesting projects of fifteen high-rise buildings that exist only in the imagination of artists.

Polar umbrella / Polar Umbrella

Polar umbrella

This conceptual Arctic skyscraper received the highest score in the competition eVolo. Derek Pirozzi introduced an umbrella-shaped building, which works as a research station where scientists can not only investigate, but to split the ice shelves.
Skyscraper “Phobia» / Phobia Skyscraper


Second place gets a skyscraper “Phobia” is used as a residential home for the suburbs of Paris. It’s made from recycled materials and plant debris, and the creators believe that because of the low cost of building materials can release and rebuild.
Floating park skyscraper

Skyscraper future

Third in the draft Beijing skyscraper, which will be a real park and garden the developed areas of the city. A giant balloon will support it in the air. Of course, is questionable trees on the building, but in any case, the project is worthy.


Your city is very noisy? Put “zvukoskreb.” According to the architects, the building will be able to absorb sound vibrations and convert into useful energy. Drills, neighbor.


How to build a skyscraper in the cosmos, that he not tip? The plan, which you see before you, involves a network of towers that cover the entire globe. It will be held in the stratosphere and the earth’s gravity. Lay the foundation does not have to.


The leitmotif of the jellyfish in this design resembles “War of the Worlds”, only this time the “jellyfish” to save the planet, not to enslave it. Buildings will absorb and recycle pollutants, transforming them into the water or fertilizer.
Shifting skyscraper

The building skin

This project is considering the idea of ​​adding layers of “fabric” of the building, after which they will be able to stretch, reshape, and even communicate with other skyscrapers. Sounds good, despite the fact that the idea of ​​the existence of “building skin” a little scary.
Skyscrapers Mars

Martian skyscraper

If we colonize Mars (and Elon Musk’s dream come true), public buildings, people will live? Ironically, those effects that we are fighting on earth can help the Red Planet. Greenhouse gases. Mobile buildings that will terraform the planet – one of the most brilliant ideas of the plan. The buildings will collect minerals and use them to create carbon dioxide greenhouse gases warming the planet.
The energy of the volcano

Volcanic skyscraper

Tons of energy lost to no purpose, because we do not use natural sources – volcanoes. VolcanElectric shield can protect certain areas of the eruption, and when those are not very intense, can absorb all their heat to generate energy.


Taking the usual humble worm, the authors of the project wanted the building to extract energy directly from the land themselves (and other parts of the city) by recycling garbage. Like a real worm. Just gigantic.
Skyscraper postapokalipsisa


System skyscrapers «Zero» – this is a recovery plan after the apocalypse. Stand-alone tower, placed in strategic locations can store data and provide shelter, food and water to those of people who want to start “from scratch.”
Floating garbage buildings

Purifying skyscraper

In the Pacific, a huge number of floating debris. Name it fits the “Pacific garbage patch.” This building will be built robots that compacted trash into cubes and add up to one big floating building. Then you can burn the “exhaust fumes during a rocket launch,” or to send into space and allow it to burn in the atmosphere.
Wooden skyscraper

Wooden skyscraper

Generally, the word “skyscraper” at all, perhaps, emerges very specific image of the building. But here it will be made out of wood. City and comfort – things compatible.
Rain water purifiers

Rain water purifiers

It looks like a bunch of flowers, right? And it is true, as these buildings, such as colors, will catch the falling rain water. And clean it.
Porous building


This design, created within Crater Scraper, to help heal the Earth after the bombardment by asteroids. That is not to heal but to move into the crater at the bottom of which will be to build a small city. Like you, asteroids? Chelyabinsk residents will love this idea.
Bonus: The biggest “Ferris Wheel” in the world

Ferris wheel

The world’s largest Ferris wheel

When it is finished, “the New York wheel» (New York Wheel) will rise to 208 meters above the city. This is the largest Ferris wheel in the world. Wheel design will be different from other ultra-high Ferris wheel in the world in several key areas. For example, a 180-meter Singapore Flyer ride and a 140-meter London Eye reinforced cables, which attach the wheels to the ground. But New York’s engineers added a 100-meter supports, standing vertical to the ground. For weather protection engineers moved the engine into the passenger cabin capsules. Repair because of this too will become easier. Construction of the 250 millionth project will begin next year. If all goes well, in 2016, passengers can enjoy a 38-minute journey with views of the Statue of Liberty and Lower Manhattan.

It is possible that in the future, the building will be printed on a 3D-printers. The development of this direction is under way .
