NEWS: This tower hangs down from space

Upside down thinking.

If you think humanity's need to build taller and and taller skyscrapers is a bit weird, consider this unique perspective on the future of construction. Called Analemma (LOL - anal emma!), the upside down tower is suspended from a captured asteroid in orbit and travels around the planet each day, with the lower end of the tower near to the surface.

The concept for the tower comes from New York firm Clouds Architecture Office, and would see the tower constructed in Dubai and then 'picked up' by the orbiting asteroid. The lower levels would house offices, while the higher space levels would feature unique homes with incredible views. Fancy that? Just don't open the window on a hot day.
