eVolo 2017 SKYSCRAPER
Architect Amer Shawa participated in the eVolo Magazine’s 2017 Skyscraper competition that invited architects from around the globe to create ideas that would redefine skyscraper design reflecting the studies on globalization, flexibility, adaptability, and the digital revolution. The Life Bubble project describes the futuristic concept of a 45 story skyscraper inside a sphere, that would protect everyone inside from the natural disasters. The shape of the sphere resembles the Femur bone (thigh bone) structure the strongest bone in human body. The tower is located in its center, floating within its magnetic field. The field is generated by opposing magnets between the external and internal spheres. The weight of the tower is distributed equally within the sphere through the magnetic field, which gives it a strong and flexible structure even if the bubble is based on different topographies.
