Using the ‘geographical’ visual of taiwan which resembles a leaf as a design launchpad, ‘floating observatories’ compares to a technological tree in its form and function.
Featuring eight leaf-like observatories, the tower’s tree-like silhouette aims to reflect the local symbolism while serving as a model of green architecture. The dynamic observation decks are set in a zeppelin-like elevator formation, holding between 50 to 80 people at a given time.
The skin of the tower also features adjustable photovoltaic panels, adding to the structure’s energy supply.
