A New York City structure agency has plans to assemble a large hanging skyscraper tethered to an asteroid.

The Clouds Architecture Office introduced the idea of the Analemma Tower in a press release accompanied by a video presentation of the construction hanging from the area object by extension cords.

The constructing will likely be made accessible by drones, the corporate specified by its design.

The Analemma Tower can be constructed in Dubai — for one-fifth of the price of constructing the construction in New York City — earlier than the corporate proposes to launch it above Manhattan.

“Going back to the earliest known structures, we can see a clear pattern emerging,” the agency mentioned in a press release. “We are in the process of dislodging ourselves from the planet’s surface.”

Using the earth’s orbit, the corporate mentioned the construction would have the ability to return to its identical place within the sky every day after travelling between the northern and southern hemispheres.

The slowest a part of the trajectory would happen over New York City. The agency intends to energy the constructing utilizing photo voltaic panels, which might be primarily based in area.

Still, questions stay about whether or not the undertaking can be enticing to on a regular basis shoppers. “While there may be a benefit to having 45 extra minutes of daylight at an elevation of 32,000 meters, the near vacuum and -40C temperature would prevent people from going outside without a protective suit,” the corporate famous.

“Then again, astronauts have continually occupied the space station for decades, so perhaps it’s not so bad?”

Even so, the corporate expects the residential complicated will command file costs primarily based off the present pattern that gross sales value per sq. foot rises with flooring elevation. Once accomplished, the construction can be thought of the world’s tallest constructing.
