Seven futuristic skyscrapers set to bend tomorrow’s skyline

While urbanisation, spiralling land values and an enduring hunger for property among the international elite, continue to drive residential towers to new heights, the highest-flying abodes are also taking architectural visions to new, futuristic extremes.

In this video, we take a look at seven of the most whimsical residences for today’s glitterati, conceived for the skylines of tomorrow.

  • The Squall Tower (Dubai, UAE) – shaped like a wind turbine and capable of energy-generating rotation
  • The Wasl Tower (Dubai, UAE) – its clay-based ceramic exterior will help power its inner heating needs
  • Tower C (Shenzhen, China) – to feature a group of connecting terraces with aquaponic gardens
  • Hengqin International Finance Centre ( Zhuhai, China) – inspired by the primal figures of dragons
  • Sarcostyle (New York, US) – modelled on a sarcomere, a complex unit of striated human muscle tissue
  • Gehry Project (Toronto, Canada) – with rotated floor plates and a textured metal-and-glass façade
  • O-Tower (Hangzhou, China) – shaped as a twisting, innovative ‘infinity loop’
