Shipwreck tower by Black n' Arch and David Černý warns of climate change catastrophe

A red shipwreck crashes into this multifunctional high-rise, which Black n’ Arch and sculptor David Černý have proposed for the outskirts of Prague to warn people of the impact of climate change.

The shipwreck will envelop the 135-metre-high building, named Top Tower, which is expected to become the tallest building in Czech Republic and contain a mix of housing and office spaces.

Its striking form is designed by Black n’ Arch and sculptor Černý to serve as a stark reminder of climate change – imagining a future where a shipwreck has collided with a building during an apocalypse caused by storms and rising sea levels.
