As the title states, the design primarily focuses on being the solution to the city’s rising expansion of concrete jungle. A contrary self-sustaining form that acts as an insulin for the midtown, a massive air purifier with water collection tubes and turbines around the void, this tower acts as a powerhouse for the whole region. The bionic interplay between glass and green carvings on the façade, inspired by the concept of a tension ring, helps to clearly distinguish past and future. The carefully crafted void serves as a doorway between Central Park and the concrete park behind the design, providing a passage for the birds and a key wind corridor that runs across the city. The large void in the center of the structure, refer section, acts as the heart of the indoors, which pumps fresh air to whole facility from inside, the design functions externally as well as internally.  The structure operates as a barrier, and the void not only serves as an architectural element, but also as an opening to what the city’s future might entail. A symbol that represents the difference between grey and green.
