Just when you thought skyscrapers couldn’t get any taller, a clever group of architects have designed one that reaches space.

But the Analemma Tower isn’t grounded on terra firma, like other buildings.

New concept art for the futuristic structure courtesy of a New York design firm illustrates how the structure would be built on a asteroid that circles the globe from outer space.

The brainchild of Clouds Architecture Office, Analemma would be the tallest building ever created.

The asteroid from which Analemma pierces through the clouds to Earth would travel thousands of miles each day between the northern and southern hemispheres in a figure-of-eight infinity loop.

It’s perpetual journey would culminate in a daily pass over New York City.

Clouds Architecture Office have proposed the tower will house residencies and offices, powered by space-based solar panels, constantly exposed to sunlight due to the curvature of the Earth.

If the proposal ever comes to fruition, the only question remaining will be the matter of who clean the windows on this eco-tower.

This is what the cities of the future will look like – and it’s literally ground-breaking.
