[HM:245197] OH KOLKATA


Stretching one hundred meters into the sky, this glistening new design could outshine anything built in India before.

The space station-style structure called Atmosphere could be constructed in Calcutta, India, if architects have their way.

Better than the Taj?: This space station design could be built in  India

This space station design could be built in India

It takes its inspiration from traditional Hindu life and will contain 80 housing units which are designed for multigenerational families.

Large terraces off the main facade provide considerable outside space for each home, and special panels carrying shimmering mobile reflective disks are scattered across the building's mesh finish.

It even includes an indoor putting green.

The futuristic design is in a competition as part of the World Architecture Festival which takes place in Barcelona later this year.
