The City in Height is an alternative to the usual design of skyscrapers. Rather than superimposing one floor on top of another without real continuity; our project is thought of as two endless ramps circumrotating continually and rising gradually with a low gradient from the ground floor to the sky.
London’s streets can now be developed both horizontally and vertically in a continuous way.
There is no break anymore, neither between the street level and the skyscraper, nor between the skyscraper floors themselves. The goal of the design is to conceive an open building that is effective as an inviting and yet powerful symbol in all directions while being permeated by generosity and openness.
