This U-Shaped Skyscraper Could Soon Be The World's Tallest Building

The firm also promises an elevator system that can move in curves.

NEW DELHI:  A New York based architecture firm has proposed the construction of a unique curved skyscraper. Designs by Oiio, the architecture studio, show a tall building which curves at the top and looks like an inverted 'U'. The Big Bend is projected to one day be the world's tallest building with an overall length of 4,000 feet, nearly twice the height of the world's tallest buildings. Pictures of the skyscraper's concept already seem to have impressed people online.

With its unique design, the firm hopes to overcome New York's zoning rules. "If we manage to bend our structure instead of bending the zoning rules of New York we would be able to create one of the most prestigious buildings in Manhattan. The longest building in the world," says the firm's official website.

Along with its distinct structure, the firm also promises an elevator system that can move in curves - horizontally and in continuous loops. "The innovative track changing system allows for the horizontal connection of two shafts on the top and bottom to create a continuous loop," says the firm's official website.
