Architecture: The Plantage Skyhanger

Via http://www.evolo.us/architecture/the-plantage-skyhanger-skyscraper-hanging-from-space-station/

A futuristic building design and idea via Slovenian architects Michal Ganobjak and Martin Koiš.  An envisioned suspended structure, more so an inverted skyscraper hanging from the upper atmospheres of Earth.  Held in place by nano-strengthened cables connected to Satellites. That in turn rotates with the Earth.  Science fiction orientated but possible, depending on levels of engineering skills in the future and/or the aesthetic challenges of a project two hundred years from now (according to their timescale). Either way, the imagination and the basic schematics allow the viewer to see what could be possible.
