Collaborative Tower: Bryant Lau
Bryant Lau Liang Cheng
The proposed design uses a double helix spiral to continue the green corridor (an abandoned train track) on the ground up vertically, introducing work-live units with retail frontages along it to encourage collaborative living. This work-live unit set up also caters to businesses at home due to the rise of technology.
Originally, a tower will have the value of the units increasing as you go up higher. This condition is reversed here, as the units at the bottom with retail frontages have higher value now instead, due to close proximity to the ground levels. Thus, the tower is no longer isolated from the grounds levels - the collaborative tower melts itself to the ground levels to give back to the urban fabric.
