The eco movement is in full swing and as such, self-sustaining skyscrapers are becoming in-demand. Since so much of the world's population resides in urban areas, it's important to incorporate eco-friendly and sustainable practices into the development and functionality of architecture in these urban areas.
From lily pad architecture to floating eco villages and solar-powered cities, it's evident that society is moving towards a greener future and these self-sustaining skyscrapers are just one avenue we've begun to explore. In the future, energy-guzzling buildings won't mark the skylines; they'll be replaced by cutting edge architecture that has a positive environmental impact.
