Cactaceae Tower

Posted by Charles Lee.

Cacti are distinctive and unusual plants, which are adapted to extremely arid and hot environments, showing a wide range of anatomical and physiological features which conserve water.  The design explores strategies for the skyscraper typology in the desert environment.  Uses different materials to passively ventilate and generate multiple thermal massing conditions within the interior of the building.
