An Upside-Down Skyscraper Will Hang Over The Colorado River In Nevada
Vertical Strip is an unusual structure designed by the architecture graduate Stephan Sobl. His creation is an upside-down skyscraper that will hang over the Colorado River in Nevada beside the Hoover Dam. Due to its location between the dam and the bypass bridge, the tower would be accessible to both cars and pedestrians from the adjoining road. Structurally it is divided into 3 tectonics: a massive concrete structure building the cantelivar for the hanging tower, a lightweight hanging tower and a metal shell embracing the structure. The conceptual tower will host a casino, a hotel, a boxing ring and a concert hall to hold events and ceremonies. There will also be high end dining with the elevator core floating above the space; a glass floor providing views to the ground; and terraced floor slabs.
