X-Seed 4000

The X-Seed 4000 is the tallest building designed ever in the human race. The designs of the construction have been completed by Taisei Corporation. Which was designed for Tokyo, Japan.

This X-Seed 4000 "was never meant to be built" says Georges Binder, managing director of Buildings & Data. The purpose of the plan was to know the skill ability of the company and contractors, which I think.

Technical Facts:-

  • Height: 4,000 meters (13,123 ft)
  • 6 km (3.7 mi) wide sea-base
  • 800 floors
  • cost to construct the X-Seed 4000 around (US$300-900 billion dollars)
  • Will have Solar Power to maintain the internal environment conditions.

For more Information about X-Seed 4000 check the following Sites:

Looks soon will be living in Star wars age.

"The Star Count team is pleased to announce that citizen scientists from 64 countries submitted a total of 6,624 observations!"

6,624 Observations is a good news… a good step 🙂 , but the bad news is most citizen who had joined are from the same zones. If you see the map above you will notice that Europe and North America submitted more observations compared to the other zones.
