High rise with fairly radical amount of outdoor space


This is fairly fascinating piece of design:

“Looking a little like a giant white pinecone, the design for this new high-rise apartment building in Montpellier, France, uses strategically placed balconies and shades to give residents the maximum outdoor space without blocking views or taking up too much room on the ground.”
