cardioTower. old factory pipe rethinking for unit city

cardiotower aranchii for unit city

cardioTower aims to provide healthy environment for the unit city. Its main idea is based on the mykola amosov heart training method, which starts from small loads and anticipates enhanced blood transportation.

MAIN CONCEPT

Thus cardioTower has 6 levels for different health conditions. The idea is to achieve climbing on the top with a pulse rate under 140. Besides, cardioTower provides rest/view spots on the top of each level. Snacks, amphitheater for cinema/ performance, ping-pong, greenery, view point and stunning panoramic view on the highest level are entertaining people during their daily training.
In general, cardioTower speculates on real values and use computational (parametric) methods to transform these values into form.

COMPUTATIONAL METHODS

technically speaking cardioTower consists of two main structural parts, inner supporting frame ( shukhov-like structure ) and outer stairs and cantilevering view points.
The highest ascent provides dynamic stairs as well as regular static ones. Dynamic stairs process up and down movements allowing people to walk on horizontal flat plane. It also makes possible to get to the top for not the most trained persons. Dynamic steps is an option that uses servo-motors and vertical rails to move along. One more option is to install an elevator inside the tower. It could allow only going down movement to protect health function of cardioTower or it could be used only for maintenance and or fire/medical services.
