I really believe that the super high rise concept in Japan really isn't feasible. Consider the large expenses and effort to create that thing. If something like that is to be built, I would much rather prefer the millenium tower by norman foster.
It is more feasible, instead of building up, to build outwards. There is still plenty of land available today. All we need to do is to spread out. I live in Arizona. Over here, it is very vast and the population is not dense. If we fairly share and not crowd a whole bunch of people together, then there is sufficient amount of land for everyone. Another solution is to build small modules. This method is cheap and easy to build. When prefabricated, thousands can be constructed and therefore house thousands cheaply. We can also build seaward, in which, either we reclaim land, or build floating islands. Although this concept is still new, many prototypes have been built. I am especially keen on this topic so if anyone would tell me more about this I would be glad to. Thanks.
