Sky Lantern Tower Concept Uses Helium Balloons Instead of Elevators
Forrest Fulton’s Sky Lantern Tower is futuristic skyscraper that lifts passengers 300 meters high while keeping material and energy use to a minimum. Based on the Taiwanese tradition of releasing floating lanterns into the sky, the concept replaces energy-sucking elevators with four helium passenger balloons. The building would also provide clean energy to Taichung using multiple high-altitude wind turbines located at the apex of the structure.
