Vertical programme stacking in slender tower is one of distinct feature for Hong Kong tower topology. And the infrastructures feasibility of alternative to accommodate variety of urban programme is one of demand in such modern efficient and high density city.Meanwhile the new fiber column system has its advantage of extremely light, strong, adaptable and efficient in prefabrication process with triaxial braiding machine to establish a new material language. Building system is comprised of permanent infrastructure, the carbon fiber cantilever, the carbon fiber slab and glass envelop. Permanent infrastructure is not only form of building circulation but could be the supporting of fiber braiding machine when have installation at site. The carbon fiber cantilever is the building element which could be prefabricated at factory and assembled at site. It could be dissembled as well as demanded. Based on the two structural element, fiber slab with natural form could be printed at site by braiding machine. By adopting this building system, building programme, public space, facade and etc could be alternative and feasible in demand of economic, society environment and culture by time.
