The Urban Tree by Geotectura is a futuristic, eco-friendly and aesthetically pleasing building.

The Urban Tree by Geotectura is a skyscraper comprised of boxes piled upon each other slightly off-kilter; it almost resembles a Jenga tower, if the pieces were square rather than rectangular. Steel stems hold the blocks together and keep the uprising tower uniform. The treelike design keeps the building modular, flexible and attractive.

The Urban Tree by Geotectura certainly looks very contemporary, and the building's technology is fantastically environmentally friendly: Greenhouse platforms covered in photovoltaic panels are on every square level to collect solar energy.
