Taiwan Tower Proposal

Design Concepts


In the beginning there was just a piece of land surrounded by water.
A vegetal spore carried by the wind caught seed.
Its invisible roots went deep into the ground.
Its truck rose(shot) towards the sky.
Large shiny leaves sprung out.
It blossomed and bore fruit.
For its color, for its beauty and its bold height.
Because it had become a winner people sought it out.
Turned it into a luck charm: the money tree in 2011.

-A 363m tall skeleton, interlinked with staircases, elevators and platforms:
-On this skeleton there are eight (8) blimpers (Tech Spore) which float around the pillars and perform as scientific research and collector module.
-The blimpers have a span between 40 and 60m length.
-The blimpers create a strong horizontal presence, with an astonishing cantilever length.
-The number of blimpers (8) is a traditionally luck and symbolical number.
-From a distance, the shape of the blimper creates a powerful landmark which resembles a flower or a traditional tree (the money tree)
-During unfavorable weather conditions (storms, strong winds, etc.) the blimpers are programmed to go straight to the ground floor level, ensuring important safety measures.
