for the city of Yerevan in Armenia, this three-pronged skyscraper
performs a multitude of functions. Formed by an arrangement of structural geodesics, the spires will house residential units, office spaces and hotels, and will effectively transform into whatever is needed. The towers are also connected by functioning space to each other both near the structure's base, and closer to its top. To allow ventilation, each tower is punctured by one long duct, and criss-crossed by numerous smaller ducts. The white skin of the skyscraper consists of transparent solar plates and ceramic tubes to reflect light and heat, and they also serve to collect rainwater. Finally the skyscraper extends its tentacles along the ground to create a new transportation hub.
