New York City Plans Future Skyscraper Which Hangs Upside Down from an Asteroid

Analemma Tower is a bold idea from the innovative Clouds Architecture Office in Manhattan. They have based this concept on the “principles of a conventional space elevator.”

The plan involves an asteroid orbiting 50,000 kilometers above the Earth, higher than the International Space Station. The tower itself would reach up to 32,000 meters, far above the clouds and where airplanes fly.

A man-made asteroid would be guided into space, with cables suspending the skyscraper over its final location in Manhattan. The tower would be constructed in Dubai, where building expertise and technology are more affordable, and then moved to its impressive spot in the New York City skyline.

The design team, including Ostap Rudakevych, Masayuki Sono, and Kevin Huang, has detailed how daily life might look in Analemma Tower. The lower levels would be used for business, living quarters would be situated two-thirds up the tower, and the top portion would be for recreational activities.

The idea of living at higher elevations, driven by the current demand for high-rise apartments, inspired the architects to develop this unique concept. Analemma Tower aims to push the boundaries of architecture and offer a futuristic vision of urban living.
