Prague’s Tallest Building Could Soon Become This Post-Apocalyptic Metal Tanker Crashed Into A Skyscraper

The Czech Republic might have a new tallest building, if developer Trigema’s plan for the 135-meter-tall (443 ft) multifunctional high-rise building near Prague’s Nové Butovice metro stop is approved. The project was designed by sculptor David Černý and architect Tomáš Císař from the studio Black n´ Arch.

The building, called Top Tower, looks as if the metal frame of a tanker ship has collided with modern high-rise. The ship will be covered in greenery. It is meant to evoke a post-apocalyptic scene, and draw attention to environmental issues. Developer Trigema counts on LEED Gold certification for an energy-efficient building.

The building would offer a public view point at the highest point of the building. Almost the entire perimeter of Prague would be visible from the lookout point, including Prague Castle, the National Theatre, Vyšehrad, and Zbraslav.
