Towering edifices that incorporate agriculture — farmscrapers, if you will — make for solid gold in the eye-popping conceptual design imagery department. Wild and wonderful in concept, these plant-studded structures present a somewhat sobering glimpse into a land-starved future where there’s nowhere for commercial food production to go but up. When it comes to multitasking, an aggressively idiosyncratic conceptual skyscraper from Mexico City-based Studio Cachoua Torres Camilletti (CTC) blows other visionary vertical farming proposals out of the water and then some. The World Architecture Festival-shortlisted proposal, simply titled “Hong Kong Skyscraper,” incorporates housing, commerce, cultural programming, public transit, rainwater harvesting, renewable energy production, and fish farming into a giant, plant-clad package that looms precariously above the Hong Kong skyline. Front and center, however, is Hong Kong Skyscraper’s futuristic presentation of the terraced paddy field, a staple of rice cultivation that’s been a familiar sight in mountainous areas of China and Southeast Asia for thousands of years.
You guys always see me posting about them but that’s only because i love this company so much!
They let me create any type of case i want they seriously let your imagination run wild! I spent a good 1 hour making my design because i was drawing Parker Cannon from The Story So Far and i had just so many ideas!
On top of that you can make cases for your laptop, ipad and so on. It’s amazing honestly.
Some very rough doodles of planned sample designs alongside their intended materials. :)
Shown are a corset with dragonfly dupioni and embroidery of actual beetle’s wings. A corset with quilted gores and ‘reversible opalescent dragonscale’ fabric. And a peach/pink satin underbust with a lace appliqué border and real pearl embroidery.
