The Analemma Tower is Designed to Hang from a Floating Asteroid


Science fiction is quickly becoming a reality, and we’re finally getting a visual idea of what life in space could really be like, a New York architecture firm put together designs for a skyscraper that will hang from the sky by air cables connected to a floating asteroid. They’re calling it the Analemma Tower, if built the structure is set to be the world’s tallest building and can be built in and transported to anywhere in the world. The building will be attached to an asteroid and will be placed in a geostationary orbit, the tower would move a figure-eight path that will pass over several countries in 24 hours.

Due to the building’s design and function, the size and shapes of the windows will change the higher up you go to take into account the atmospheric pressure and temperature changes.


“Business is conducted at the lower end of the tower, while sleeping quarters are approximately 2/3 of the way up. Devotional activities are scattered along the highest reaches, while surface transfer points take advantage of high topography,”


At the top of the building, residents are able to get an extra 40 minutes of daylight because of the curvature of the earth. This futuristic structure will appeal to many including us here at THEFRESHCOMMITTEE, but it will also be terrifying to others. “While researching atmospheric conditions for this project, we realized that there is probably a tangible height limit beyond which people would not tolerate living due to the extreme conditions,” says Clouds Architecture Office.
