Tower of Gene Storage / Sustainable system for city

Tower of Gene Storage
Tower of Gene Storage

Based on the report of urban planning in Singapore, our chosen domain is gene storage in 2100. Estimates based on bacterial genetics suggest that digital DNA could one day rival or exceed today's storage technology. Gene Tower is like a home tree between citizen and a huge seed that symbolizes the gene carrier. Gene Tower provides a new strategy of gene storage for big data. Synchronously, it brings an idea of ​​delighted sharing and environmentally friendly lifestyle to the rapid development of city.
