The Stratosphere Network of Skyscrapers is a global project for the year 3013, a giant hex-structure will evolve all around the Earth, honorable mentioned at 2013 Skyscraper evolo Competition.

The designers of this ambitious project are: Mingxuan Dong, Yuchen Xiang, Aiwen Xie, Xu Han, from China.

“As technological innovative and higher latest skyscrapers can be, they still need to rely on the support to the ground. So a higher height usually means more unstableness as well as weaker capacity to resist disasters.

The project proposes a mega hex grid that evolves around the earth circumference at a stratosphere height, the principle that support this hypothesis is that it seems to be that in a building the larger the span is, the scale and the unstableness will proportionally increase.”
