Following the high-profile Southbank by Beulah architecture competition, Melbourne, Australia, is slated to receive a major addition to its skyline. Assuming it goes ahead as planned, the aptly-named Green Spine will include the tallest building in the country, as well as the Southern Hemisphere.
Dutch firm UNStudio has completed the 36-story Ardmore Residence in Singapore. One of a new breed of luxury towers in Asia, the high-rise demonstrates the studio's cutting-edge approach to design, machining and technology.
With Nippon Moon, UNStudio is bringing more than sheer scale to the concept of the enormous observation wheel. Nippon Moon is clearly intended to compete with the likes of the Singapore Flyer and London Eye. The company hints that mobile apps or augmented reality could be used to enhance the ride.
