The Biology-Inspired Futuristic “Sarcostyle Tower” Mimicking Muscle Fibers for NYC Skyline

It is a common practice that architecture and design find inspiration from biology. The conceptual ideas, design, architecture, and materials inspired by biology are called biomimetics which is the copying of living Nature.

There are a number of perfect examples of biometrics around the world, like the Beijing National Stadium or the Bird’s nest as it is more famous for, the Turning Torso building in Malmo, the Basilica de la Sagrada in Barcelona, the Eden Project in the United Kingdom and many others.

The New York City skyline might be supplemented with a recently released project, a 689-foot conceptual skyscraper, the Sarcostyle Tower by Hayri Atak Architectural Design Studio. This futuristic tower also found its inspiration from biology and the bridges across the tower’s middle void are created to imitate rod-shaped muscle fibers. The name of the project, Sarcostyle Tower, comes from the term sarcomere which is the fundamental unit of a muscle and is responsible for contraction.




This unusual tower is one of the finest examples of biology-inspired architecture and design that stands out for its creative approach. Check out the photos and tell us about your opinion of the architectural design.
