DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
City Sand Tower

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Vertical City

INSPIRATION:
In this flat expanse, it is difficult to understand the tower at the first glance. At this distance, it seems to be a rock. Approaching, the landscape widens and the climate softens through the shadows projected on the ground. One enters into a maze of streets that recall the eastern souks. At the corner of an alley, one gets aware of the presence of the tower. It seems huge, but a reassuring immensity is welcoming. One enters naturally. At the threshold a water basin brings freshness and reflects the atrium. Looking up, there is an inner tower covered with vegetation that seems to have grown inside the first one! It now seems huge, but a reassuring immensity welcoming. One enters naturally, at the threshold of a water basin brings freshness and reflects an atrium. looking up, we see an inner tower covered with vegetation, it seems to have pushed the center of the first!

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

It is not a standard tower, it is a vertical city that is fully autonomous, self-sufficient with an inner vertical ecosystem that makes it even more independent.
