Urban Forest from MAD Architects

With the goal of bringing "the affection for nature lost in the Oriental ancient world," to city dwellers, Beijing's MAD architects have designed a skyscraper: Urban Forest.

The 385 foot building is MAD's third sky scraper, following the Absolute Towers in Toronto and the Sinosteel in Tianjin, China.

The architects envision a stack of horizontally shifted floors, each with a sustainable foliage. View more diagrams at Dezeen.
