The Agora Garden Tower in Taipei City, Taiwan can not go unnoticed. Not only for being a great example of bio-climatic architecture but also because of its structure in DNA shape. In fact, its appearance is closely associated with its condition of sustainable construction and, in a figurative symbolism, of being a source of life and dynamism. At the architectural level, each double helix is represented by two housing units that form a complete level.
Developed by the studio Vincent Callebaut Architects, claims to be the world’s largest sustainable construction. Although not yet opened-this must end in 2016 – has received the Green Building category from the Interior Ministry of Taiwan.
“This project presents a pioneering concept of eco-friendly residential building which seeks to limit the ecological footprint of its inhabitants by finding the right symbiosis between human & nature.” Vincent Callebaut
