World’s first asteroid-tied hanging skyscraper to make Burj Khalifa look relic of past

Dubai’s Burj Khalifa is officially recognized as the world’s tallest building, measuring 2,716.5 feet and consisting of 163 stories.

However, various architecture firms are consistently striving to come up with innovative concepts and secure investments to beat Burj Khalifa.

Some of these concepts are so impressive that it is hard to imagine them being feasible.

One such example was proposed by Clouds Architecture Office, a New York-based firm, in 2017.

They presented a design for a tower named the Analemma Tower that would hang upside from an asteroid 31,068 miles above Earth, according to a 2017 report by CNN.

The huge structure would levitate above the ground and hold pricey apartments and would be accessible by drone.

Additionally, the skyscraper will travel between the northern and southern hemispheres on a daily loop as asteroids orbit the sun.

As a result, the plan would be to build it in Dubai, but launch it in New York City.

Residents of apartments will use an electromagnetic elevator to travel between space and Earth, powered by solar panels.

The water would come from the surrounding clouds.

The firm truly believes it’s possible.

“Going back to the earliest known structures, we can see a clear pattern emerging,” the firm said in a statement. “We are in the process of dislodging ourselves from the planet’s surface.”

Although it’s a long way from being constructed, the rate at which technology is developing makes it impossible to predict if levitating skyscrapers will be a thing in the future.
