Unlock horizontal versions of today, Pillars of Flux is a network of skyscrapers used as a vertical shipping port designed for expanding ports and emerging ports of tomorrow. The Pillars are detached from the city to free valuable shoreline for public use and its storage bodies are also designed vertically to save space on narrow gulfs and coves. Its interaction with the mainland is solely transportational, and its layout and pillar height depends on characteristics of the the related city. Drones are responsible for building onto Pillars to enable the storing of more containers. After certain a height, another Pillar can be built to also enable more shipping traffic. Various energy harvesting and recovery methods such as solar panels and wave turbines are used to make it more sustainable. Additionally, the structures are built of eco-friendly materials and dedicated Drones help clean its surroundings from any pollution caused by visiting ships.
