Tribute: The Mountain of Giant!
A Skyscraper Project to Keep Trees Standing!
A fantastic project, called Tribute: The Monument of Giant, is trying to keep the sequoia trees from falling over by placing skyscrapers inside the trees. Isn’t it amazing that people are trying to rehabilitate nature and build it up again? Finally, we’re finding a way to use and save trees at the same time. The project also attempts to connect architecture with coexistence of humans and nature!
Although giant sequoias can be over 300 feet tall, with diameters between 20 and 26 feet, their roots often aren’t deep, so when their heartwood – what the designers described as a structural backbone – starts to rot, the weight of the trees can cause them to topple over. A skyscraper nestled inside could prevent this ending.
