Video from Broad Sustainable Building as reports suggest groundbreaking in June
A true vertical city. This is the concept behind Sky City, a 838m-high tower destined for Changsha in Hunan Province and allegedly due to begin construction next month (June 2013). The team behind the project are Broad Sustainable Building (BSB), a Chinese construction group responsible for some of the swiftest building projects in the world including the 15-day construction of 30-storey hotel in Dongting Lake.
BSB is planning to realise Sky City - which will rise 10m above the world’s current tallest tower, the Burj Khalifa - in only 7 months using prefabricated components in a plan that has been scorned by many industry professionals. The video below shows a fly-through of the proposed design from construction through to completion and was released on the Different Energy YouTube channel a few days ago. At the time of going to press, the video had had over 51,000 views.
