Waterfall Skyscraper Zoo
November 25, 2009
We feel that we’re a fairly adventurous group, but every now and then we come across a project whose sheer braggadocio and outlandishness defies all commentary.
Costanera Sur is a proposal for a vertical zoo in Buenos Aires that transforms a pile of rubble into a towering pillar of falling water. Designed by Visiondivision, the project aims to reclaim debris left over from the construction of Buenos Aires’ decades-old highways, is entirely self-sufficient, and could theoretically provide water and energy to surrounding structures.
A towering pillar of falling water? Animals running wild in a diagrid water-purifier skyscraper? We don’t know where to begin. Maybe our readers can help us with this one. Watch out Lion!
