World of Chlorophyll, a project by IAMZ Design Studio, is an idea for a conceptual skyscraper containing the form of residential units in the near future. Their main concept involves the units taking the form of leaves, stemming mainly from the columns, based upon all residential units. This way, the building mimics nature, and in conformity with it, also makes for an easy configuration. More images and architects’ description after the break.

These features included natural ventilation with the penetration of sunlight through the units and the creation of indirect lighting.

    Beautiful three dimensional maze but sadly makes no economical, structural, environmental or functional sense. Plus, the metabolists and archigram did this 50 years ago.

    Seems pretty purposeless. Not really sure how it works structurally or why it would need to since both form and function are lacking. Worthless.
