Air Monument : Self-Sustaining Atmosphere Database Skyscraper

Air Monument is a atmosphere database skyscraper to help people study better to find better solution for climate change. Realizing global climate is a growing problem, studying atmosphere components might provide the possibilities for us to learn the law of climate changing. This futuristic building is a conceptual skyscraper that keeps atmosphere samples automatically every year, as time passes by, it will become a library where people can do research on atmosphere components to find a better way to create better air quality as well as environment.

Earth atmosphere is composed of complex components such as fluids, gas, solidities, and other complicated physicochemical properties. Unfortunately we can only detect limited numbers of these properties from existing air samples, there’s high possibility that there are still many unknown substances that might make a difference during climate changing process but we don’t have the technology to detect them now.

Air Monument aims to collect air samples to benefit human being in the future, it will keep air samples in chronological order in resemblances with document files, making a huge atmosphere database. The main volume of this skyscraper floats high above human activity zone utilizing wind power generation and pneumatic structure supporting its operation. In this way, even during disaster, this conceptual futuristic skyscraper would still survive far beyond human civilization.

  1. resembles the saucer city from TV toon The Jetsons from 60s toons.
    Awesome design
    Need another standing brace for support or web if sited in quake country alone.

  2. Needs Heliport center & stronger support leg/s for complex alone & have turbolift system in complex from Ground to complex level alone for cargo & personnel use
