Entry Description

One of the biggest problems of modern cities is rapid urbanization, which puts natural green space into further distance. For humans to function properly, their everyday surroundings must include the green parts. The ideas of Idyll Tower suggest to change the standard, usual perception of today`s skyscrapers. Imagine, a settlement structure that grows up to form a tower, where every storey is a different building lot- a green space. Communication determines the form of the tower- the various levels diffuse and it`s possible to move freely between them. It is like hiking road in the mountains, which is a big inspiration for this project. The openings in structure of the tower facilitate the process of photosynthesis- rainwater gathering and storing systems irrigate all of the gardens. Plants that filter contaminated air should occupy every storey, assisting natural ventilation. For strong wind protection, it is possible to cover the tower with transparent, "breathable" membrane.
