Building up is often the choice solution to minimizing urban sprawl, and the CPSU Sky District brilliantly exploits this tactic in a way that discourages isolation.
Condominiums and apartments can turn inhabitants into hermits, but the clusters of towers that these California Polytechnic State University students suggest require occupant circulation and exercise, but offer an efficient and appealing means. First of all, the program of each structure is made up of a variety of different activities, from residential to commercial, and everything in between. What you need may be in your building on a different level, but if it's in the next skyscraper over, direct bridges will connect you to your destination in midair. Residents can also enjoy the high-speed elevators and on-site desalination plant that the CPSU Sky District has to offer, thanks to designers Ryan Nevius, Thomas Shorey and Baptiste Rout.
