Inspired by all the Ghost Cities of China (over development on urban projects that are left empty or derelict). We decided to "recycled" these buildings that will be FREE for the masses as so many poor people cannot even find a decent dwelling to live. We want humans to grow organically in these crumpling structures and defy the social normality of money that controls our lives. We want to bring back the "survival instincts" of the human race. Here is a poem i wrote:

>I HAVE SEEN MANY AMAZING DESIGNS IN EVOLO COMPETITIONS.

>MOST ADAVANCE ARCHITECTURE OF OUR TIME.

>BUILDINGS THAT MORPH, TWIST, CURL, WARP, FLY, DIG AND TRANSFORM!

>CREATIONS SO ADAVANCE THEY HAVE PAVED THE WAY FOR THE NEXT 1000 YEARS.

>BUT THEY ALL SEEM TO MISS THE POINT OF SUSTAINABILITY.

>TECHNOLOGY AS AN ENTITY IS NOT SUSTAINABLE!

>IT’S LABOUR INTENSIVE, FULL OF DEFACTS AND NEVER ABLE TO SATISFY THE INSATIABLE GREED OF THE HUMAN RACE.

>NATURE IS THE PERFECT CREATIVE MACHINE.

>I SEE MANY EVOLO CREATIONS MIMICING NATURE.

>TAKING THEIR IDEOLOGY, GEOMETRY, PHYSCALITY AND ORGANICITY AND ADAPTING INTO ARCHITECTURE.

>BUT WHY MIMIC NATURE WHEN ALL WE ARE DOING IS PRODUCING INFERIOR IMITATIONS.

>LEARN TO EMBRACE AND CO-EXIST WITH NATURE.

>AS OUR ANCIENT ANCESTERS HAVE DONE BEFORE.

>ARCHITECTURE BY ESSENCE IS A DESTRUCTIVE PROFESSION.

>BUT I BELIEVE THE NEXT EVOLUTION IS CO-EXISTENCE.

>WHERE “TRUE ENVIROMENTAL” DESIGNS HAS TO BE RECONSIDERED.

>SUSTAINABILITY IS NOT JUST ABOUT CREATING THE NEW THAT IMPROVES ON THE PRESENT DOWNFALLS.

>SUSTAINABILITY IS ALSO ABOUT RECYCLING THE OLD.

>SO THUS IMAGINE THIS:

>AS TIME CONTINUES BUILDINGS MOSTLY BECOME DERELICT MONOLITHS.

>THEY ARE EITHER ABANDONED OR CAST ASIDE.

>DISMANTLING THEM REQUIRES HUGE LABOUR/MATERIAL COST AND CREATES ENORMOUS WASTAGE.

>I PROPOSE WE ADAPT THESE ABANDONED STRUCTURES AND TRANSFORM THEM INTO NEW LIVABLE COMMUNITIES.

>I PROPOSE WE GROW PLANTATIONS AND TREES AROUND THEM AND LET NATURE MORPH THEM INTO A FUNCTIONAL ENTITIES.

>I PROPOSE WE REJECT THE NEED TO HAVE ANY FORMAL LANQUAGE FOR ARCHITECTURE AND LET NATURE “EVOLVE” OUR STRUCTURES.

>WHY DO WE NEED TO INVENT TECHNOLOGY WHEN NATURE HAS ALWAYS BEEN AT OUR DISPOSAL!

>THE UN-SUSTAINABLE TOWER WILL NEVER SUSTAIN IN PHYSCALITY, GEOMETRY, AESTHETIC OR COMPOSITION.

>BECAUSE OUR PLANET IS A CONSTANTLY EVOLVING ORGANISM, JUST AS LIFE IS…..

>ARCHITECTURE DOES NOT NEED TO BE PRISTINE, SLICK OR SHINY.

>MAINTAINENCE IS ALSO WASTAGE.

>TECHNOLOGY MAY EASE OUR EXISTENCE BUT CAN ALSO INCREASE OUR RELIANCE- DEGRADING, STUPEFYING AND ALIENATING US FROM REALITY.

>THIS IS WHY MY PROPOSAL IS A MIXTURE OF HAND PAINTINGS AND COMPUTER WORK.

>AS I SIMPLY BELIEVE COMPUTER GRAPHICS CAN NEVER CAPTURE THE CHAOS AND IMPERFECTION OF OUR WORLD.

>WE NEED TO EMBRACE CHAOS AND IMPERFECTION AS MUCH AS THE ASSUMPTIVE PERFECTNESS OF TECHNOLOGY.

>THE UN-SUSTAINABLE TOWER IS PROBABLY THE MOST LOW-TECH BUILDING EVER CREATED FOR EVOLO.
