SkyPod redefines vertical transportation in ultra-tall buildings

PLP Architecture has completed a Technical Demonstration project SkyPod for Tyréns' Advanced Funiculator, a completely new type of lift. This innovative concept will redefine vertical transportation for ultra-tall buildings.

The project explores the topology of a looped system or a continuous and connected series of pods that snakes over the exterior of a tower exceeding a height of 1000 metres. To move potentially 30,000+ inhabitants over such large distance (less than 2 minutes to 888m), the track configuration consists of a two-way high-speed track with pods measuring approximately seven metres by five metres stopping at dedicated destinations, and a local track whose travel direction changes in morning and evening rush hours with pods calling at stations on every level (duration 5 minutes). It even anticipates a connection to a local metro.
