Vasily Klyukin – Asian Cobra Tower

leave a comment »

O arquitecto russo Vasily Klyukin, sediado no Mónaco, desenhou um arranha-céus em forma de cobra, um projecto que, segundo o autor, poderá ser construído numa cidade do Médio Oriente. Isto apesar de, na verdade, ainda não ter sido adjudicado a nenhuma.

O edifício tenta mimetizar o corpo de uma serpente, no topo, a sua cabeça com a boca aberta – Klyukin vai aproveitar esta parte para localizar um restaurante ou clube nocturno com terraço. No corpo estarão vários apartamentos e espaços comerciais.

Denominado Asian Cobra Tower – ou torre asiática da cobra – o edifício pode ser apenas uma estratégia de marketing para o arquitecto nascido em Moscovo se mostrar ao mundo. “No Japão, dizer a alguém que é uma serpente é uma forma de elogio. Na China, as cobras e os dragões têm o mesmo significado”, explicou Klyukin ao Mail Online.

O edifício pode mudar de cor, entre o preto e o dourado – através da sua iluminação. Não há nenhuma informação, porém, sobre se esta é LED ou se existe qualquer outra característica sustentável ou ecológica no edifício.

“Os arranha-céus chamam-nos a atenção e despertam a nossa consciência, inspirando alguns e irritando outros. Estas torres têm mudado a paisagem das cidades em todo o mundo e tornaram-se no reflexo claro do progresso económico e cultural do século XX”, concluiu o arquitecto.

A Russian architect has designed a skyscraper shaped like a cobra, predicting that his snake-like tower to be built in a prominent Middle Eastern city.

The majestic design features a round base to appear like a serpent’s body, as well as an open-mouthed head, set to house a terraced ‘restaurant or nightclub’.

The aptly named ‘Asian Cobra Tower’ has been designed by Monaco-based architect Vasily Klyukin, from Moscow.

High Time

Photograph by Tina Sullivan, National Geographic Your Shot

From the south tower, Your Shot member Tina Sullivan captured this photo of cars crossing the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. Though shot from above, Sullivan’s image still manages to show a recognizable portion of the bridge’s iconic profile—in the shadow it casts on the waters of Golden Gate Strait.

Sullivan’s shot was recently featured in the Daily Dozen.

Art Works Wonders

Photograph by Jeremy Fox, National Geographic Your Shot

This massive sculpture, called “Wonderland,” sits at the base of The Bow, the tallest building in western Canada. Jeremy Fox, a member of our Your Shot community, was keen to capture an image of the artwork in a way that highlighted the striking pairing of the installation and the “state-of-the-art office tower.” A black-and-white photo taken at night seems to have done the trick. Writes Fox, “I thought it was a fantastic concept to incorporate art on such a grand scale … The bright white lights really illuminate the sculpture against its dark surroundings.”
