Asdfg Architekten's Sky Stack is Partially Unseen

Hamburg's Asdfg Architekten have erected the Sky Stack, a structure that appears to be partially invisible when standing at a distance. The architectural masterminds placed five reflective rings around the top of the thin building, allowing it to blend in with the color of the clouds.

The title Sky Stack plays up on the functional aspects of the edifice as it is a smokestack. The smoggy elements are however removed as it emits light and atmospheric shades above all else. The engineers have in this way reinterpreted a design framework that is typically hazy and certainly polluted by investing in clean, natural elements. It is as at the same time an artistic conversation piece, adding to the beauty and tourist-like appeal of the Rothenditmold town. Stats for Seemingly Invisible Structures Trending: Older & Chilly
