As cities become more and more densely populated, designers and architects are trying to figure out ways to accommodate everyone comfortably; enter the NY Billboard concept. This architectural design proposes to introduce horizontal layers in Manhattan, New York, in order to alleviate some of the stress of creating higher buildings, which can be isolating, dangerous and insufficient.

Conceived and designed by architect Chris Precht of Prechteck, the NY Billboard would link separate towers while staying away from traffic and noise. With walkways, elevated gardens, public facilities and more, the NY Billboard concept would introduce public life into the skyline of Manhattan.

The NY Billboard would also incorporate environment-friendly elements such as solar and PV-panels on its tops and sides as well as turbine technology and rainwater collectors. Stats for Horizontal Urban Architecture Trending: Older & Warm
