Virgin Buildings The World’s Greenest Skyscrapers

Introducing Virgin Buildings, capturing iconic Virgin moments in a new generation of ultra-green skyscrapers.

From a spaceship design in Sydney, to a plane design in London; from a balloon design in New York, to a kiteboard design in Cape Town; these extraordinary Virgin Buildings will positively change the landscape for the environment, architecture and cities around the world.

In addition to the striking designs, Virgin Buildings will feature renewable and recycled materials and cutting edge environmental considerations. They’ll collect and recycle 100% of their water, using some of this for novel heating and cooling systems, as well as vertical gardens to grow food in the buildings. Some of the buildings will even rotate to change how they interact with the sun.

Physicist and television presenter Professor Brian Cox shared his expertise with the team too:

“The physics of creating rotating buildings in dense metropolises should not be underestimated, and efforts to source more of our primary energy from the sun – and put sustainable hotels on the moon – should be applauded.”

Watch the video to find out what Virgin Buildings is all about.
