The Mega structure

Designed by Italian architects Diego D’Agostino and Enrica Papa, this sustainable skyscraper has
been envisioned to be built in the slum areas of Mumbai. Made from prefabricated steel frame,
the structure will provide green housing for low-income slum-inhabitants. The structure is to be
assembled in stages for accommodating the ever increasing population of the city. It will
feature highly customizable blocks that can be expanded at will.

Eco Credentials

      The skyscraper’s customizable structure will utilize recyclable plastic and cardboard
       material throughout the fabrication process.
      The eco-friendly attributes of the design will be complimented by green terraces that
       reduce runoff and also insulate the building from direct solar heat.
   The structure can also be dismantled and transported to new areas according to the
    population needs and economic fluctuations.
