Urban Tree

The Urban Tree is a skyscraper composed of a series of “floating” cubes clustered together and sprouting from steel “stems.” Designed by green architecture firm Geotectura, the futuristic building would feature greenhouse platforms at every level and be clad in photovoltaic panels all around in order to collect solar energy. While adding much useful space and an impactful silhouette to a city skyline, the building’s tree-like design allows it to keep a relatively minimal footprint on the ground. Aside from looking cool, the main purpose of using cubes in the building’s design was so that each unit could be modular and flexible.
