Warsaw studio Moko Architects has unveiled plans to build a diving and indoor skydiving centre outside Warsaw by surrounding a pair of abandoned cement silos with a tower of shipping containers.
The facility is proposed for the industrial district of Zeran, where a series of channels transport water between the city and Zegrze Reservoir, and a number of abandoned factories and warehouses.
The design by Moko Architects is for a ten-storey structure where diving and skydiving activities can take place inside the cylinders of the converted silos. The first will be filled entirely with water to allow divers to plunge to depths of 25 metres, while the second will contain an underwater “cave” at its base and a skydiving tunnel at its top.
Construction is due to start in 2015.
