The proposal for the latest skyscraper is sure to raise doubts in your mind. Clouds Architecture Office has released plans for a quite a futuristic skyscraper and it is going to be dangling from the sky. Dubbed as the “Analemma Tower” the building will hover above the ground in all its majesty. The building would be attached to an actual asteroid which will forcibly installed into the orbit around the earth. So when you say out of the world experience, probably this is one the one you should be talking about. And if you still can’t get over the fact, then brace yourself because residents of the skyscraper won’t have an exact address because you would be anywhere on the Earth, like the balloon house from the movie ‘Up’? may be!
The tower would be suspended from a cable attached to the asteroid placed in “eccentric geosynchronous orbit”. Hence, the residents would keep traveling between the northern and southern hemisphere and would hover longer over New York or Dubai. While we are still thinking about the practicalities of making a skyscraper that does not touch the earth, the European Space Agency’s Rosetta Mission landed on the surface of the comet Churyumov-Geraismenko proving that it is possible to successfully interact with such smaller bodies in space.

Taking this ambitious project a step ahead, NASA’s “Asteroid Redirect Mission” will soon send a robot to collect a boulder off an asteroid and place into a stable orbit around the moon. Analemma Tower’s designers said that the tower could be made of light-weight materials such as carbon fiber and aluminum. The energy required for the building’s journey would be harnessed from solar panels which had exposure to sunlight. While water will be captured from rainwater and stored in a semi-closed loop system. The proposed tower is expected to reach 3000 mph while it travels through the sky.
