CRG Architects cites the statistic that six out of every ten people in the world are expected to migrate into urban areas by 2030, with 90% of this growth taking place in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Caribbean. Steel City would consist of two cylindrical towers made from 2,344 cheap and available recycled shipping containers from the port city of Mumbai. The twisting, stacked structure of the skyscraper optimizes wind flow and natural ventilation, while providing a 360-degree view of the surrounding city.
After studying the solar exposure of the site, Gomez and his team developed a color arrangement that optimizes the paint of each facade based on the heating rate of each side, an attempt to combat the high temperatures during the summer in Mumbai. He explains that the maximum number of stacking containers is between 8 to 9 units, so a main structure will have to divide these units into sections for support if they want to achieve their goal of 400m.
Thus, the skyscraper was presented as a adequate housing solution for the densely overpopulated Dharavi neighborhood of Mumbai, an area of India most affected by the mass urbanization taking place in South Asia.
At capacity, Steel City would be inhabited by approximately 1,400 Families, and 5,000 total residents, and would be the new height marker-to-beat on the Mumbai skyline.
