Sustainable Skyscraper Absorbs Carbon Dioxide


This impressive new skyscraper is just a concept but it may soon be added to Taichung, Taiwan's skyline. Designed by Vincent Callebaut, the Biotic Arch would be a revolutionary and creative skyscraper that would also be one of the most environmentally friendly buildings to date.

The Biotic Arch would acquire electricity from a mix of bio, solar, and wind energies. The Arch also takes in excessive carbon thanks to its living facade and vertical gardens. This would help the Taichung Government reach their overall reduction policies, not to mention, help with their proximity to China and their carbon footprint.

The Biotic Arch is also a creation for Taiwan's centennial and honors the local architecture while looking towards the future. This proposal is an excellent creative idea that we are bound to see more of as our world continues to grow.
