Project DescriptionFROM THE ARCHITECTS:
In Japan telling someone that he is a snake means a compliment. In China snakes and dragons often mean the same. The symbol of wisdom and eternal life, this tower would embellish any Eastern city.
Tourists, fascinated, would look at this immense cobra, its jaws serving a terrace would be a restaurant or a night club and its body could contain offices or apartments.
Snakes and dragons are custodians of threshold, temples, treasure, esoteric knowledge and all lunar gods. If this skyscraper is built in a city this city will become eternal in its resurrections.
The diamond-shaped pattern on the back of the snake is the symbol of Yang and Yin, duality and reunification of the Sun and the Moon, male and female principles, conciliation of opposites, and androgyny.
Snakes change their skin, as this skyscraper can change its coloring.
These buildings rise up proudly in columns looking over cities or stand alone in the landscape. Either way, skyscrapers grab our attention and awaken our consciousness, inspiring some and irritating others. The embodiment of creative fantasy and engineering theory, hard labor and the boldest dreams, these buildings have come to represent the achievements of humanity and the expression of our ideas. From the church spires built to honor God, to buildings that have become national emblems, skyscrapers are a part of the history of mankind.
These rising towers have changed cityscapes around the world and have become the clearest reflection of cultural and economic progress in the twentieth century. At times, it’s skyscrapers that dictate the style of business regions and even whole cities.
Also in March Vasily Klyukin released a sci-fi thriller Collective Mind. This absorbing novel tells us about the near future and about what is going to happen with creative people then.
