Our planet can be a crowded, polluted, crazy place. But a new design concept proposes that we rise above it all, literally, by moving to a magnetically levitated island in the sky, complete with green forests, mountains, and urban centers. The concept, called Heaven and Earth, was created by Chinese architect Wei Zhao and won an honorable mention in eVolo's 2012 Skyscraper Competition. Zhao has proposed that the massive donut-shaped platform could hold magnets on its underside that would repulse the earth's magnetic field to hold the island aloft. The floating platform would rotate, generating energy as it spins and theoretically fueling a completely sustainable society. Unfortunately, like most utopias, this idea is likely to remain a pie in the sky.
