Born in Ruse, Bulgaria 1976, Bulgarian architect Tsvetan Toshkov is the author of this beautiful design concept. Toshkov studied Architecture in Sofia and since 2001 has been working as freelance architect in London. Besides, Tsvetan Toshkov is a co-founder of Formad and ATK – based in London studios for architecture visualization, computer graphics and design. According to the author, City in the Sky project is “about an imaginary tranquil oasis above the mega developed and polluted city where one can escape from the everyday noise, stress and dirt.” The aerial escapes are meant to soar high above our tallest skyscrapers.

Meanwhile, Lotus City sky architecture, project by Bulgarian architect Tsvetan Toshkov, came into life in the heart of the burgeoning area of Wujin in the Chinese city of Changzhou. Not too much in the sky, but still lotus. The Lotus Building joined the surrounding “People’s Park” designed by Australian architecture firm Studio 505. A new cultural and social project reflects the ambitions and future aspirations of the local authorities, making it one of the most beautiful government institution. The blooming lotus, in particular, shows the three stages of the flower from the new young bud, to the full ripe flower through to the opened bloom with a seed pod within it.

Grown on the surface of an artificial lake “flourishing” building is an extension of the existing underground municipal institutions, supplementing them with new cultural and social functions.

In the design, the main desire of architects was to see the structure as a sculptural installation with a colorful and lively atmosphere that could cheer up the visitors in any weather. Situated beneath the artificial lake, the Lotus Building is impressive. Visitors enter from below into a vaulted, cathedral-like interior space where a combination of color and light create a bright and uplifting interior atmosphere.

In addition, the designers paid particular attention to colors of petals, which smoothly move from deep, rich shades to lighter and airy tones. External and internal walls – lined with small hexagon mosaic tiles of white, orange and steel colors. Laid by hand, they create smooth and continuous volume. Also, the atmospheric lighting of the buildingat night, further enhances it.

The Lotus Building reflects the importance of nature not only in its aesthetic sense, but also an interesting example of ecological design. For example, in 2500 the geothermal piles, located beneath the surface of an artificial lake, help use water to cool the building in summer and heat in winter.
