Skiing on the roof might sound like an accident waiting to happen but if this ambitious Kazakhstan building project gets the go-ahead it might just revolutionise the idea of rooftop skiing forever. And when we say “forever”, we mean until the sun implodes and life in our solar system is extinguished. After that cataclysmic event happens, who knows what rooftop skiing will look like?
This new housing complex design, proposed by the architecture group Shokan Mataibekov in Astana – Kazakthstan, will feature 421 apartments contained within 21 storeys. More excitingly than that, it would feature a 1,000-foot ski slope that curves down from the roof all the way to the ground floor.
