OK, so this particular skyscraper hasn't been built yet but the images we've seen of the Bionic Arch are very impressive.
Taichung in Taiwan is in dire need to reduce the city's carbon and as part of the 'Taichung Active Gateway City' Vincent Callebaut has put together a proposal that is an architectural gem - a green gem.
With its vertical gardens and living facades the Arch is almost like a vertical park, and will receive all of its electricity from bio, solar and wind energy sources. It will have zero emissions so will help towards achieving the city's carbon reduction plans.
To go with the Bionic Arch Callebaut has also proposed to create green living quarters nearby for sustainable urban communities to prosper in.
I love the Shard that is currently being built in London, but can we also get a Bionic Arch please?
