USA - Skyscraper Out of This World

Arno Froese

A New York architecture firm has unveiled designs for a skyscraper that is out of this world.

Deemed the ‘world’s tallest building ever,’ Analemma Tower will be suspended from an orbiting asteroid 31,068 miles (50,000 km) above the Earth—and the only way to leave is by parachute.

The firm’s latest design, Analemma Tower, will ‘overturn the established skyscraper typology,’ as it builds from the sky down, instead of the ground up.

‘Through the course of history humanity has been able to affect the environment on increasing scales,’ explained the firm.

‘Today our activity is being registered on a global scale. So why not apply design thinking on a planetary scale?’

‘The proposal calls for Analemma to be constructed over Dubai, which has proven to be a specialist in tall building construction at one fifth the cost of New York City construction.’

And although some may question the firm’s ability to capture an asteroid for the project, Clouds Architecture Office believes its idea will soon no longer be just a concept from science fiction films.

‘In 2015 the European Space Agency sparked a new round of investment in asteroid mining concerns by proving with its Rosetta mission that it’s possible to rendezvous and land on a spinning comet,’ shared the firm.

‘NASA has scheduled an asteroid retrieval mission for 2021 which aims to prove the feasibility of capturing and relocating an asteroid.’

Arno's commentary

Wikipedia says that the page “Cloud Architecture Office” does not exist. Google gives an address in New York City, but could not come up with more information. The full article, as published by the Daily Mail (27 March 2017), informs us of this strange skyscraper, literally out of this world. While it may remain fictional, it does remind us of Genesis 11, where the people in the land of Shinar attempted to build a tower from earth to heaven. Verse 6 reveals: “And the Lord said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.”

Furthermore, the proposed project seems to mimic the truth of Holy Scripture. We read in Revelation 21:2: “And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.” That will be the real thing: designed, built, and perfected by the eternal God.
