Lilly is the concept of a passive Manhattan skyscraper covered by flowers

Studio Vural developed a prototype of skyscraper based on geo-thermal technology, natural ventilation and carbon absorption.

Studio Vural designed a passive-tower located on the southern edge of Bryant Park, in Manhattan, dubbed “Lilly”. The skyscraper would be entirely draped in flowers and is a prototype that could change the future of the cities.

In fact, Lilly eliminates conventional heating and cooling thanks to a geo-thermal system boosted by natural ventilation and, through rainwater, it irrigates a natural insulating blanket of a lily field, able to absorb carbon.

The project houses 18 floors of apartments and 23 of office space, with a total of 265,000 square feet: sustainable spaces with extremely low-energy costs; and also the landscape maintenance, returns back to her with more energy savings.
