Ever imagined that a building could hover about the ground - floating in mid air? Architect Joseph Cory thinks the above scenario might be possible in the future, using electro-magnetism. In his Electro-Magnetic Skyscrapers project, the structures support each others through their electromagnetic fields.
“By using magnetic fields as a construction material there can be infinite vertical and horizontal expansions due to the final liberation from gravity.”
Using magnetic fields as a construction material, the skyscrapers would also integrate built-in energy systems from photovoltaic cells on the sides of the cube to wind turbines, air shafts forcing wind into energy, water conservation tanks, and more.
