• The Diamond Tower, inspired by diamonds and powered by the wind and sun for NYC

    The New York skyline might just have a diamond in the sky if things go as planned. Mexican architect Luis Durazo came up with the Diamond Tower, a building inspired by a girl’s best friend, diamonds, and 300 meters high and boasting some pretty green features. The building’s exoskeleton acts as a steel lattice and allows in daylight. It also packs wind turbines on the top levels while solar panels cover the building’s façade. Inside, the Diamond Tower will house a museum, art galleries and a lot more recreational areas. Somewhat reminding us of the chemical structure of diamonds, this tower will surely turn into a recognized landmark in the city of New York.

    A green diamond in the Big Apple? We’d love to see one!
