Structural Geodesics Skyscraper

Vahan Misakyan as Architects

The main idea of this project is architectonics and aesthetics of the created environment. It consists of three major parts |The Concept of Structural Geodesics Skyscraper|, |Performing Arts Center|, |“proposal of new roadway over the canyon and recreation park with entertainment complex”|.

Skyscraper consists of an assemblage of structural geodesics that form three towers linked by habitable bridges at the top and bottom. Different programs, including offices, residences, and hotel are located in each tower – the geodesics change in size and configuration depending on the program. The bridges are used as commercial and recreational areas for the general public. One of the main concepts of the proposal is to create a soft transition between the vertical and horizontal planes by creating surfaces that peel off from the ground and transform into habitable areas. A transportation hub for the city emerges from one of these structures while a second one creates a bridge and a recreational park.

The building is designed with the latest green technologies. An “intelligent” skin controls, through mechanical openings, the amount of light incidence and could also be used to reduce heat and provide natural ventilation. This skin is also equipped with rain water collection systems, photovoltaic cells, and wind turbines.
