A new project, designed for the 2019 Evolo Skyscraper Award, involves the construction of a skyscraper that will contain a water theme park, hiding an enormous cryptocurrency mining facility inside.

Plasco commercial building, an iconic high-rise structure in central Tehran, collapsed following a fire that broke out on the top floors on 8 am local time (Thursday 19/1) and was burning for hours. According to the local media, at least 30 firefighters have been killed, although it is still unclear whether their death was due to the fire or the building’s collapse.  The 17-storey tall structure came down in a matter of seconds and there are fears there could be more people trapped inside.
