The Tropical Tower is defined by its nonlinearity, opposing to the ambient rationality, it is a twist of the architectural body. This body is inhabited by a vegetation extending over the 150m height. Each floor provides access to the plants, where the terraces, kind of excrescences, will support trees or even greenhouses, some of them will be used for vegetables growing.

The architecture of the Tropical Tower is expressive, the black concrete slabs constitute horizontals framing the full height glass who provides transparency and view for the inhabitants.

Finally, the tower is equipped with movable brise-soleil arranged on the most exposed facade, this mobility creates a vibration, a deconstruction of the order in an organic architecture.
