HyperGreen Tower Concept



This is an interesting concept called the HyperGreen Tower by Jacques Ferrier, which was recently submitted to an architectural competition in Paris. The 246 meter tower design has an unusual curving exterior lattice facade made out of concrete that acts as the building’s primary structural system. This allows for adaptable floor plates and vegetated sky lobbies that sit between the tower’s facade and interior office space.




The image above shows the array of wind turbines on the tower’s roof.



The green highlights of the HyperGreen Tower include integrated solar cells, wind turbines, a rain water harvesting system and a geothermal heating system.

    sorry, but this screen in front of wind turbines is a total joke…it wont work…well done designers…as long as it looks good and you call it green everyone will be convinced!!!

    The world does not need another skyscraper – even if it IS green. Lord, have mercy on us!

    The World does need more skycrapers and less groundscrapers.
    It will provide us more open space and green space.

    it will be better if we can transform all horizontal buildings int0 the verticals.

    Imagine how much spaces we can save

    Absolutely NO! That building looks ugly. It may be green-centric in it’s intentions. But as the old saying goes, the road to Hell is paved with good intentions.

    The world does not need another skyscraper – even if it IS green. Lord, have mercy on us!
