Science fiction is rapidly becoming reality, and people are envisioning life in space by actualizing real-estate ideas. Recently, a New York architecture firm put forward a design for a skyscraper that will hang from the sky by being suspended by air cables attached to an asteroid. Dubbed the Analemma Tower, the proposed structure is set to be the world’s tallest building and can be built in and transported to anywhere in the world. As it will be attached to an asteroid placed in a geostationary orbit, the tower will be moving in a figure-eight path that will pass over several countries in 24 hours.

Due to the building’s otherworldly function, the size and shapes of the windows will change the higher they are, accounting for changes in atmospheric pressure and temperature. “Business is conducted at the lower end of the tower, while sleeping quarters are approximately 2/3 of the way up. Devotional activities are scattered along the highest reaches, while surface transfer points take advantage of high topography,” Clouds Architecture Office describes. At the top of the building, residents will be able to experience 40 extra minutes of daylight due to the curvature of the Earth.

Though this futuristic structure may appeal to many, it will also frighten others. “While researching atmospheric conditions for this project, we realized that there is probably a tangible height limit beyond which people would not tolerate living due to the extreme conditions,” adds the company.
