MAD, a Chinese architecture firm, has revealed visuals of a skyscraper named Qondesa that is set to become the tallest building in Quito, Ecuador. The exterior of the building will feature vine-like designs that wrap around the structure. The building will be stone-coloured just like the buildings in its surroundings that were built from volcanic rocks. Qondesa has been built to absorb sufficient sunlight and will have planted balconies that will make the building appear green.
