Octavia overall design

Bit stylised but wanted it to be quick.
The reason behind this design is the height of the city. The shape collects the winds and directs them in the middle where the futuristic looking "windmill" transforms them into electricity.
Another perk for this shape is collecting rain water and the condensation of the trees, again gathered in the middle and filtered before send through the pipes.
My problem at the moment are the houses? Any suggestions?

  1. well, the houses would likely be in another part of the city - so I'd suggest thinking of this thumbnail as 'sector' or zone - maybe logically, the houses of the city would be below this section - and remember too, a city isn't just 'houses' - you're thinking of a 'town' - a city is comprised of many hierarchies of architecture... You need to zoom out again, and think about how this bit of the jigsaw fits into a much bigger picture. It all gets much more satisfying when you start asking the 'little questions' that empower big imaginative ideas.
