The Bjarke Ingels Group is set to build the Hualien Residences in Taiwan, but this design is not the average set up for apartments. The entire structure consists of sloping ridges that are covered in grass at the top, and come together in a peak at the top.

Overall, the design looks like something from the future, and strays far away from any traditional building structures normally used for residential space. The area used to be an industrial factory space, but now the government wants to transform the area to become more of a beach resort-like getaway. The ridges mimic the surrounding mountains, and individuals who end up living here will also have close access to the ocean.
