The Skylines Tower by Lissoni Casal Ribeiro has been awarded an Honourable Mention in the international architecture competition "Skyhive 2020 SKYSCRAPER CHALLENGE".
Lissoni Casal Ribeiro took inspiration from nature and its most inspiring element, the Tree, to develop an architecture that is not simply a building but a complete ecosystem. Like a tree. One that gathers all the energy required from the sun and the wind, that collects water from the rain and transforms the energy from its tensioned cables into electricity to be used by the inhabitants.
This ecosystem provides extensive gardens and cultivated platforms for everyday needs. The tower is configured so as to maximise the functionality of the interior and exterior spaces and guarantee structural efficiency. Starting from an 80x130m urban lot, a main central core hosts the primary functions that are completely surrounded by large hanging gardens supported by an external curtain of steel cables that act as both the structure and the façade design of the tower.
