the dutch architecture firm monolab design a true high rise for rotterdam in the city’s maas harbour. the tower is designed to give the city a contemporary high-rise that is iconic and practical. the tower would stand 450 m tall in the city’s harbour connected to the land via a series of walkways where there would also be a parking lot and another building project. the building’s façade would use photovoll glass that harnesses solar energy to power the building. the tower also does away with a central core for elevators and stairs by placing these elements of the outside. the interior of the tower would be filled with a combination of office, residential and special commercial programming such as observation decks, gym and restaurants.
