I'd love to live in a vertical forest, though I'm not keen on the blocky design of the experimental one featured in the video above. More details on that here.

Something like this design below though, I think would be beautiful to make entire cities look like this.

The Titanic struck a ... skyscraper?

One Central Park in Sydney, Australia, is a vertical garden rising 160 metres up in the air. It envelopes 263 apartments and includes a range of sustainable initiatives.

I don't care for the structure of the building itself, especially not for the cantilevered, motorised heliostat, but the idea of obscuring a view of what basically is just a glass, steel and concrete block with a lot of plant life appeals to me.

Yeah me too. I love that.
She battled through in every kind of tribulation,
She revelled in adventure and imagination.
She never listened to no hater, liar,
Breaking boundaries and chasing fire.
Oh, my my! Oh my, she flies!
