Facts

  • Designed to demonstrate the feasibility of building such a tall habitable structure in an area vulnerable to strong earthquakes and typhoons.
  • The design called for a tower in 3 even parts, divided by sloped setbacks. The plan was an 8-pointed star with X-braces at the corners on the lower two-thirds.
  • The crowning feature of the design was a large heliport, supported by a trussed structure at the tower's peak.
