Water Purifying Skyscraper Cleans up Jakarta's Rivers
As the river and its banks are converted into a new ecosystem, the slums along the river will be removed and the people living there will be relocated into the skyscraper’s low-income housing units. Elevators inside the structure will be powered via the Archimedes principle of vessels – the vessel will move up or down based upon their specific gravity. Additionally, the structure will be powered with wind turbines and a solar system placed on the roof, making the building completely self-sustaining in terms of energy and water.
