Mexico City-based architecture firm Studio Cachoua Torres Camilletti has proposed a skyscraper design that’s truly out there, The Atlantic’s CityLab reports. Resembling a pair of skeletons embroiled in a domestic dispute, the connected towers feature algae facades, rice paddies, fish ponds and flowers. The mixed-use building would be designed to harvest energy and filter water, among “100 other things.” It would be nuclear powered, which is somewhat ironic. No word about what sort of elevators it would have, but no doubt they would be machine-room-less and energy efficient.
