Polish firm Mode Lina Architektura & Consulting have proposed ‘Gesterbine’ Skyscraper as their entry for the 2010 skyscraper competition organized by Evolo magazine. Greater Poland (Wielkopolska) is an area characterized by small amount of precipitation, however, with high rate of evaporation. These conditions, amongst other factors such as the decrease in forest areas, have led to steppisation, a problem of water shortage and a decrease in varieties of fauna and flora. As a result, ponds and swamps surrounded by green oasis have disappeared. In addition, the warta river due to the inland navigation has been drastically regulated which has shortened the river bed by over 100 km. These environmental changes have quickly lead to the lowering of ground water levels in Wielkopolska.
