Even expansive gardens within cities are hardly adequate escapes from the sounds and smells of dense human and machine activity, so the Skypark by Miro Straka presents people with another near-by option for obtaining a bit of fresh air. Floating high above the tops of metropolitan towers, this squid-like structure is an inner-city getaway.
The unusual and enormous levitating object is connected to the grounded skyscrapers and streets of Bratislava, Slovakia, by tentacles, making the complex and organic composition of the zeppelin an apparent emulation of the anatomical heart. The fleshy and tubular interior walls create an alien environment for visitors, in which they can explore and experience the refreshingly unfamiliar. The perforated skin of the Skypark by Miro Straka would afford the best conditions for breathing anywhere around the central business district.
