The Empire State Building was made as a sign of prosperity and wealth, was it not? Over time, the definition of prosperity would change to not how much money you have, but how in touch with mother nature are you. Recover Labs is a massive transparent structure built around the Empire State Building. It creates an enclosed biosphere around the building, with multiple parks/gardens at different levels. Let’s just admit that validation aside, it looks pretty cool!
