Cadaver Esquisee

This skyscraper celebrates diversity through spatial form. Skyscraper developers and designers are realizing the importance of creating a diverse environment capable of housing different types of programs to improve the quality of life. The market demands constant change, so buildings should adapt alongside it to better serve its inhabitants’ demands. The project aims to house a mixed-use program that consists of the following: a public playground, a school, a library, a sports center, office spaces, and a hotel. An important element is public access. Integrating the public as much as possible to successfully develop a strong sustainable community is a must. This skyscraper offers an opportunity for the public to enjoy its verticality and city views by going up and down along a vertical observatory that is supported through a series of elevators, ramps, and platforms.
