Sky City 1000: City of the future

जुलाई 13, 2007 at 4:03 बेलुका 6 comments

skycity1000_01.jpgExtreme Engineering unveils some of the most ambitious architectural plans of our times. Some are theoretical; others are in the works. But all must face challenges that stretch the definition of what’s possible. Tokyo’s Sky City 1000 : This space-age city in the sky might seem like science fiction, but it answers some questions about where humans might live as our most crowded cities become even more densely populated.


Sky City 1000 is a possible future urban project aimed at helping put an end to major congestion and lack of green space in the Tokyo, Japan ward area.

The plan consists of a building 1,000 meters (3,280.8 feet) tall and 400 meters (1,312 feet) wide at the base, and a total floor area of 8 km² (3.1 miles² or 1976.8 acres). The design, proposed in 1989 by Takenaka Corporation, provides for 35,000 full-time residents and 100,000 workers, students and visitors. It comprises 14 concave dish-shaped “Space Plateaus” stacked one upon the other. The building would include residences, offices, commercial facilities, schools, theatres and other modern amenities.

Since its announcement it has garnered much attention among the world’s architectural establishment. Many hope that within a decade or so it will be fully realised by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government and Japan’s largest corporations.

Apparently, the project is taken very seriously and Tokyo’s only fire helicopter has been used in simulation tests to see what the danger would be if a fire were to break out in one of the buildings. Also, triple decker high speed elevators which would be used in the building and would contain up to 70 people are being designed in experimental labs outside Tokyo.

Although this project has gained more serious attention than many of its alternatives, it can be considered similar to projects such as X-Seed 4000 and Sir Norman Foster’s Millennium Tower and, in ultra-high density, mixed use concept, to theories like Paolo Soleri’s Arcology and Le Corbusier’s Radiant City.

    Sky city 1000 should be located just outside of Toyko because, you just shouldn’t demolish historic bulidings.
