Xtopia

Xtopia is a concept building for a 300-floor urban sprawl and lower the environmental impact of human populations.

Xtopia features a tripod base which combats wind and ground tremor, while allowing sunlight to pass through to surrounding buildings and parks.

There are industrial sections in the legs, commercial floors in the first panoramic levels, residential levels, and aeroponic gardens further up.

The Discovery Channel program was written and directed by documentary filmmaker Scott Tiffany.

The program stated that a traditional lift system wouldn't have worked in the building because it might take hours to reach the destination. So special lift system is used which not only slide with the iron bars of the building in upward and downward direction but also move sideways.

One complete floor of the building is reserved for the growth of vegetables and fruits which not only fulfill the needs of building but also of the city.
