Bioclimatic-Generated skyscraper

Inspired by Ken Yeang, who states that ”a bioclimatic skyscraper is a tall building whose built form is configured by design, using passive low-energy techniques to relate to the site’s climate and meteorological data, resulting in a tall building that is environmentally interactive, low-energy in embodiment and operations, and high-quality in performance”, this skyscraper is generated through the analysis of the climatic conditions of the site using parametric and algorithmic architecture.


Environmental studies were translated to Grasshopper to generate the desired form. An analysis of the Sun’s path was used to generate a voronoi shaded structural system while aerodynamic studies were used to design the profile curvature of the tower.

the form is generated depending on climatic changes which enables the project to be sited in every place on earth and gives the same degree of comfort.
