Architectural studio Triptyque recently engineered an ecological revitalization of a series of skyscraper buildings located in Rio de Janerio that opts for an environmentally friendly structure that infuses solar panels. This allows the building to source and create its own electricity to power the entire space. In addition, the revitalization of the building offers a much more environmental use of the space rather than a complete teardown and demolition.

The building was originally designed in the 70's with a lack of any ecological qualities in the structure's design. Triptyque remodelled the skyscraper and its 26 storeys to have solar panel siding, water recycling filtration systems and plants located on each balcony to provide green space. The space can now source the natural surroundings for electricity and water, in place of overusing natural resources.
