Skyscrapers take on a stacked aesthetic to allow for open-air design

Implications - As more consumers demand greener lifestyles, yet are pushed into condo living arrangements due to urban space constraints, architects are reconsidering traditional skyscraper designs in favor of those more catered to the eco-conscious market. The solution may be jengalike, stacked structures that incorporate space for gardens and open areas. These designs show that living in congested cities doesn’t mean nature and fresh air must be sacrificed.
