Architect Jan Tajchman Concrete Waves Conception

The idea is intriguing: If one room in the form of waves, then each room varies. And why should a whole high rise building should not fluctuate? The architect Jan Tajchman in Tel Aviv wants to carry out this idea for the probably most unusual skyscraper in the world.

The probably most unusual skyscraper in the world will rise in the Israeli metropolis, Tel Aviv. The facade of the building consists elegantly curved graceful concrete waves, between those large mirrored glass.

It goes to not less unusual inside. The facade waves continue there, so that spaces of different heights. The architect responsible for the design, Belgian working in Paris is David Tajchman see white concrete as a building material and base for new trend in building design.

The “Gran Mediterranean” is 140 meters high

Baptized as “Gran Mediterranean” high-rise building should help to transform the skyline of Tel Aviv. UNESCO wishes that “Gran Mediterranean breaks world’s usual stacking of single projectiles with which, covered with mirrored glass” says Tajchman.

In addition to building there will be placed driverless electric cars available for residents and hotel guests provided from special garage. Each box is will be equipped with a charging station. The vehicles parking on a current-carrying coil. Their electromagnetic field starts a second coil under the floor of the vehicle. The resulting AC is rectified so that the batteries recharged.
