Studio DeciBel Architecture proposes a tall and super skinny triangular tower that has the potential to be Melbourne's tallest building. Occupying a small angled plot that equates itself to half a tennis court, the structure is definitely an instance where the architects at DeciBel got creative. The Magic Tower is envisioned to be 330 meters high and its slenderness ration is expected to be "off the charts." According to an interview with Dezeen and DeciBel Architecture's founder Dylan Brady, the "[it] pushes into around 26.6:1."
To create a secure framework for the proposed triangular tower, the studio utilized cutting-edge construction technology and high concept design — from "innovative new type of mass dampers" for sway-reduction to solar panels and rainwater gathering systems for consumption cutback.
