This ‘hybrid multi-functional megastructure’ has been designed to make new york’s central park available to more people. Conceived by yitan sun and jianshi wu the proposal has been awarded first place in eVolo’s annual skyscraper competition.

Densely populated with skyscrapers, nature in manhattan comes in the form of a 1.3 square mile piece of land — central park. however, as a consequence of its location, only a small percentage of new yorkers are able to benefit from this vast public garden each day.
