NOICE.
The blackening of roses will send you to the edges of the land/
The emerald tablets of Thoth the Atlantean/
The hands of the mighty Lion of Judah/
Will throw you through the triangular portals of Bermuda/
Exploring the Hologramic aspects of consciousness/

Everyone has their own tastes when it comes to architecture, lol.

Don't you like the concept behind it though? Nature & parks INSIDE of a high rise? With solar energy powering the entire thing.

That to me is awesome. There should be several of these in NYC alone... many people would go... and it would lessen the traffic in places like Central Park, Prospect Park, Marine Park, etc.

Would also help the energy costs.

Matter of fact, this would be awesome for the new Coney Island park here in Brooklyn.

China, Russia, United Arab Emirates (Dubai) are all in front when it comes to architecture and perhaps even solar and wind energy. We need to catch up to them QUICK!

Those pictures of the high rise portions of the structure were hilarious. They've got trees growing on a 45 degree slope 40 storeys in the air. Who's going out there to treat that thing for bark beetles, never mind fertilize it or prune deadwood off so that the wood doesn't become a javelin from God zipping down to impale or crush someone at street level?

It gives a new meaning to "widowmaker". Perhaps you could name the street in front of it Lottery Street.

Then there's the question of how well a modular design would do in the kind of earthquake that Mexico city has every now and then. Do the modules come apart when enough shear stress is put on the connecting bolts?

Otherwise, it's a pretty cool concept for a one or two level structure.

Oh, and there seems like a lot of wasted space between all of the odd angles.
