Sydney practice Koichi Takada Architects has unveiled designs for a 63-storey tower in downtown Los Angeles that references California’s gigantic redwoods, the “oldest and tallest” trees in the world, as well as Hollywood icon Marilyn Monroe and her “flying skirt.”

Named Sky Trees, the tower is the fourth major project the practice has designed for Sydney property developer Crown Group and its first venture in the United States.
