KILOMETRE TOWER

The Kilometer Tower was just that, 1km high. The design was our entry to the international 06 Skyscraper competion. The project was developed in conjunction with students at the University of Southampton. What makes the building unique is its inverted structural solution. Five ‘Gerkin’ size pods are suspended in tension from the ETFE clad exo-skeleton. This creates intrinsic and integrated structural, environmental and spatial benefits. It is also a unique approach to skyscraper design – as far as we know!
