The Open Tower

Balancing unpredictability and architectural authorship, the Open Tower reframes the conventional high-rise as a heterogeneous and non-hierarchical vertical city. The project democratizes the space, allowing its occupants to control informality and programming public agoras along the entirety of the tower, generating a new ground for immigrants displaced by climate change.
