These are cool… I stumbled across some pictures posted on Flickr that are artists conception of moving skyscrapers that travel up and down multiple Space Elevators. I followed the Flickr link back to the website and discovered “Squares are evil“…
It looks like these pictures / drawings were entered in a 2007 Housing Architectural competition.
The level of detail in this work reminds me of the Base Station designs I posted about earlier. At some point, I need to get someone to start finding these online designs and building an entry about them at the Space Elevator Wiki. This type of forward-thinking will be very helpful in the eventual real design of a Space Elevator.
And here is a picture of SpongeBob SquarePants taking a trip to the moon in (I think) a Space Elevator. Not as much detail as the artist drawings, but you got to love it all the same…
