Project Nomad, which has been entered into the Evolo 2013 Skyscraper Competition [4], was the brainchild of Antonio Ares Sainz, Joaquin Rodriguez Nuñez and Konstantino Tousidonis Rial of Spain. It is their response to “the global increase in population, its concentration in cities, and the development of emerging countries leading to a big increase in energy need.”

“The Earth has undergone dramatic climatic changes, which have been linked, by a large consensus, to greenhouse gases (GHG). The concentration of GHG in the atmosphere directly affects the global temperature, with potentially global, dramatic consequences. Without any doubt, it is indispensable to define an objective of maximum emissions, in order to limit problems in the future in the Earth [sic].”
