Gran Mediterraneo is a proposal for a cylindrical skyscraper for Tel Aviv, by the Belgian architect David Tajchman. The mixed-use scheme brings together a mix of programs suitable for vertical living, including apartments, a hotel, an automated car park and induction charging stations for electric driverless vehicles, farming and public gardens, co-working spaces, spas and a lot more, all wrapped with mirrored glass. Below is the description from the architect
The Gran Mediterraneo is an innovative concept of High-Rise that integrates a public automated car-park, operates as the first induction charging station for public and shared electric driverless vehicles in the city (future ‘sherut’), and mixes programs of vertical living: residential apartments and hotel, bars and restaurants, farming and public gardens, swimming pools and dead sea spas, co-working spaces for offices and start-ups, educational and events spaces.
Innovative also with its topological geometry giving a spiral effect to the high-rise, the Gran Mediterraneo breaks with the global and usual stacking of horizontal slabs wrapped with mirrored glass, aiming to renew Tel Aviv skyline with a ‘Unesco proclaimed white city’ specific vertical architecture. To be built with white concrete, using the latest construction and digital technologies, the curvy high-rise is filled with mediterranean and dead sea natures.”
