One problem with the modern skyscraper or highrise apartment has been the isolating effect of stacked floors. This design from London-based SURE Architecture Company addresses that common criticism in an innovative way.

According to the Architecture Lab (full text):

"The City in height is an alternative to the usual design of skyscrapers. Rather than superimposing one floor on top of another without real continuity; our project is thought as two endless ramps circumrotation continually and rising gradually with a low gradient from the ground floor to the sky. London’s streets can now be developed both horizontally and vertically in a continuous way."
