The Rem Koolhaas parcel along the High Line is envisioned to hold the concrete-based structure, reports 6sqft , that would funnel upward to support the massive glass enclosure. The architects describe how sunlight is key: “As the sun comes across the sky to the west, the building twists to evenly distribute daylight throughout the day.” Observers can gaze upon the indoor farming terraces, accessible to the high-rise’s residents, as well as visit the top floor observation garden and second floor art gallery. Related: Wild Walk is upstate New York’s answer to the High Line, 40 feet above the forest floor Permits have yet to be filed to begin the project, yet the conceptual design has gained the attention of hopefuls. The project’s striking facade and reverence for lush greenery would fit in well with the surroundings of the High Line park. Whether or not the so-called Hybrid Farm apartment concept comes to life there, whatever is built will surely be something truly eye-catching. + Weston Baker Creative Group Via 6sqft , City Realty Images via 6sqft, Weston Baker Creative Group

Inhabitat’s very own Editor-in-Chief, Jill Fehrenbacher , recently caught up with the LowLine team, James Ramsey and Dan Barasch, to pick their brains about what could be  New York’s next design landmark .

Comments Off on NYC’s High Line Park So Popular That Creators Plan a High-Speed Tram to Quickly Move Pedestrians

Because of growing crowds flocking to NYC’s High Line Park, which are anticipated to double when  the final section is complete, the architects and engineers have decided to add a  people-mover style tram . The tram will keep the pedestrian traffic moving, getting people from one side of the  High Line to the other more quickly. The original rails will, of course, be left intact and the high-speed, levitating train line will be built alongside. Click ahead to learn more about the new, innovative addiction!

Capitol Building to Generate Clean Energy via Hot Air Turbines in House Chamber

Comments Off on Capitol Building to Generate Clean Energy via Hot Air Turbines in House Chamber

The United States Capitol building is one of the most impressive buildings in Washington D.C. It’s also the meeting place of the United States Congress and the legislature of the federal government of the United States. As anyone who has ever watched C-Span will know, barely a day goes by without the building being populated by house representatives, lawmakers, judges, and even tourists. With all this footfall, a large amount of heat is generated – especially in the House Chamber. Due to the impressive amounts of energy created from activity within the building, the Department of Energy have announced plans to install turbines above the House Chamber to harness all the hot air that is generated and convert it into clean energy.
