Above a certain height the primary structural challenge of a tower shifts from gravity loads to wind loads, from vertical to horizontal stress. As a result, most skyscrapers are built like thick columns providing an equivalent foothold to a given wind load: square plans with deep dark spaces. In response, we devised a tower that consists of 3 square towers merged into one. The central tower is straight as a dart, the two peripheral ones change places between ground floor and penthouse, causing the volume to flip 90 degrees. This provides maximal foothold for the hardest wind pressures.

Hmm…it looks like things are taking a while to load. Try again?
