Kingdom Tower

Designed by AS+GG, the $1.2 billion, 3,280 feet + skyscraper will be the tallest in the world once complete. I’d be more impressed if they built 1000 meters down where all the riches are. It would be called an “Earthscraper” and would hold the title of ‘World’s Deepest Building.” Core’s The Limit!

Redesigning the Outdoor Music Festival Experience

Interesting, minimal work from Re-Make/Re-Model

“‘Why Don’t We Do It On The Stairs’ is an open and flexible concept providing a variety of spaces to accommodate all sorts of activities throughout every hour of every day of the festival. By creating two large stairs offering seating with views of the festival grounds and filling them with activity boxes where anything can happen, people can always find spaces that suit their mood…”
