"The Tower of Gaia" was one of the 47 recommended designs for the @urbanconfluence competition out of 963 anonymous submissions❣Congratulations to all three finalists and all contestants for the awe-inspiring art and creativity! Here are some extracts from our proposal, which we hope will now come to life elsewhere:
"We would like to reveal a new kind of icon expressing the fragile balance and interconnected nature of our world [...] A digitally generated #timber tower swirling into the sky, celebrating the environmental technology of our time. [...] The Tower of Gaia will have a unique #selfsufficient restaurant providing a panoramic view of the Silicon Valley. It will serve food that grows within the structure itself. This rich flora will form an educational journey that the public will experience whilst going up the platforms through an intricate staircase or an exciting lift following the curvature of the building itself. The tower of Gaia aims to become an exemplary beacon of net zero carbon design. Throughout the building #lifecycle and waste management during construction up to operation, Gaia will adopt a #regenerative approach. The tower will deploy active systems that sequester carbon during its operation to offset its own embodied carbon and generate enough energy to operate and store for a vertical #hydroponics farm targeting beyond zero carbon [...] The Internet has helped connecting people worldwide, and has made technology empowering and democratic. #IsaacAzimov and #JamesLovelock envisaged “#Gaia” as the ideal planetary state, in which all beings would connect into one, in the spirit of Buckminster Fuller’s Operating Manual for Spaceship Earth. The Tower of Gaia will help us remember: We’re all in this together."

The Mamou-Mani studio by Studio Naaro, 17th February 2020.
"We design physical experiences bringing people together - In this period of confinement, we appreciate how lucky we are to do so and how none of it can be taken for granted. This beautiful photo by Studio Naaro of our Mamou-Mani studio was taken just before the crisis and shines with the buzzing excitement around all creative possibilities. It brings us joy to see this whilst we all work from home and look forward to building projects again for everyone soon! In the meantime we try to help where we can and all our machines are busy printing PPE for the NHS. Sending lots of love to all of you." ... See MoreSee Less
