Wadala Tower of Mumbai, India


The [in-progress] 1000m tower is a dynamic twisting form generated by twisting floor plates. Each floor plate is rotated slightly at 5 degree continuously upwards in order to create the dynamic and fluidity of the tower.

[L]arge and luxurious terraces are also created by the rotating floor plates.


A vertical urban forest is created by the twisting terraces with massive amount of vegetation which could reduce carbon emissions. External wind turbines are installed on every 5 floors which help to generate renewable energy, which could be used as backup energy.

A grand waterfall along the core is not just for aesthetic purposes only but also helps to reduce the heat gain of the tower.

I’ve heard reports that work on this tower was, unfortunately, canceled.

About Heretic

I design video games for a living, write fiction, political theory and poetry for personal amusement, and train regularly in Western European 16th century swordwork. On frequent occasion I have been known to hunt for and explore abandoned graveyards, train tunnels and other interesting places wherever I may find them, but there is absolutely no truth to the rumor that I am preparing to set off a zombie apocalypse. Nothing that will stand up in court, at least. I use paranthesis with distressing frequency, have a deep passion for history, anthropology and sociological theory, and really, really, really hate mayonnaise. But I wash my hands after the writing. Promise.
