Architects want to develop a colossal skyscraper hanging from an asteroid. A design firm from New York City has an innovative plan, wanting to build a unique skyscraper, which would also be the tallest building ever developed in the world. The tower would be called Analemma. It would be suspended via cables from an asteroid.
- Architects in New York City want to built a unique skyscraper.
- They developed a plan to build a colossal skyscraper hanging from an asteroid.
- Specialists need to reposition an asteroid for this purpose.
The asteroid would be repositioned into geosynchronous Terra orbit for this purpose. Based on the data provided by Clouds Architecture Office, the colossal skyscraper would develop a figure-eight path above the surface of our planet. The floating tower would swing between the southern and the northern hemispheres, being back in the same position once every 24 hours.
The speed of this massive skyscraper would vary, being entirely dependent on which part of the figure it is tracking. The plans indicated that the tower would have the slowest speeds at the bottom and top of every loop. The orbit of the asteroid would synchronize in such a way that the path of the tower would have the slowest part of New York City.
Clouds Architecture Office has developed a collaboration with NASA to design Mars Ice Home, a Martian habitat. The firm expects the tower to be built in Dubai, near the tallest building in the world, Burj Khalifa. Analemma will be developed in such a way it would be powered by solar panels, and it will also utilize recycled water. Unfortunately, the plans of the architectures do not reveal how people would get on that floating building. Apparently, there are some illustrations which show that people would parachute from the skyscraper to the ground.
If someone ventures to reach the highest floor of Analemma, then he or she will be able to enjoy 45 more minutes of sun, at an altitude of 32,000 meters. Nevertheless, people who venture so high in the building would need a spacesuit to go outside due to freezing temperatures and near-vacuum. Specialists explain that they thought about building this tower by using the power of planetary innovation thinking.
This determines people to wish for constant mobility, seclusion, and extreme height. Building this amazing tower will be extremely expensive. Probably, much of this cost would be spent to reposition the asteroid by which the skyscraper would be hanged. This is a revolutionary plan and architects are hopeful that they will actually transform it into reality.
