Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture presents its proposal for the Imperial Tower in Mumbai, India, planned to reach a height of 400 meters and include 116 floors. If construction is launched, the building is to be the tallest skyscraper in the dense urban setting of Mumbai, which currently features predominantly low-rise structures. The curvilinear accents of the facade are designed to improve aerodynamics as it resists strong winds at high elevations, while the surface of the building deflects sunlight and heat to accommodate the hot, humid weather of India. A series of green terraces and areas, including spaces called "sky gardens," will also contribute to breaking winds and collecting rainwater for sustainable use. The project anticipates a total of 132 serviced apartment units to be included in the skyscraper, ranging in sizes reaching 1,115-square-meters.
