Terra Nova Skyscraper


The skyscraper typology has made it possible to duplicate and compress the presence of population in a city while having a small percentage of sprawling but in the process has lost and obligated their inhabitants to live a certain way, limiting diverse lifestyles to mass produce units throughout the building. What if we part from the creation of a diverse unit that answers to the diversity of the inhabitants as it goes upwards? What if instead of developing a building all throughout in one go it is developed by phases as the inhabitant decides to come? Thus the Terra Nova Skyscrapers. A building made to change and work for its user and in the process be able to adapt for the times and usage.
