It recognizes outstanding ideas that redefine skyscraper design through the implementation of novel technologies, materials, programs, aesthetics, and spatial organizations along with studies on globalization, flexibility, adaptability, and the digital revolution. It is a forum that examines the relationship between the skyscraper and the natural world, the skyscraper and the community, and competituon skyscraper and the city.

The participants should take into consideration the advances in technology, the exploration of sustainable systems, and the establishment of new urban and architectural methods to solve economic, social, and cultural problems of the contemporary city including the scarcity of natural resources and infrastructure and the exponential increase of inhabitants, pollution, economic division, and unplanned urban sprawl. The competition is an investigation on the public and private space and the role of the individual and the collective in the creation of a dynamic and adaptive vertical community.

It is also a response to the exploration and adaptation of new habitats and territories based on a dynamic equilibrium between man and nature — a new kind of responsive and adaptive design capable skyxcraper intelligent growth through the self-regulation of its own systems.

There are no restrictions in regards to site, program or size. The objective is to provide maximum freedom to the participants to engage the project without constraints in the most creative way. What is a skyscraper in the 21st century?

What are the historical, contextual, social, urban, and environmental responsibilities of these mega-structures? Architects, students, engineers, and designers are invited to participate in the competition. We encourage you to have multidisciplinary teams. This is a digital competition and no hardcopies are necessary. Entrants must submit their proposal no later than February 12, Winners and special mentions will be published by eVolo and several international print publications. In addition, the results are covered by the most important online architecture and design publications and general media such as the Huffington Post and The Wall Street Journal.

Who can participate in the competition? Everyone is invited to participate, including students and professionals from com;etition country worldwide.

Is there a specific program requirement? No, participants have complete freedom to establish their own program, site and conceptual agenda. The Jury selected 3 winners and 27 honorable mentions from projects received. The annual award established in recognizes visionary ideas- projects that through the novel novel use of technology, materials, programs, aesthetics, and spatial organizations, challenge the way we understand vertical architecture and its relationship with the natural and built environments.

The project is a foldable skyscraper inspired by origami that could be easily transported and deployed in disaster zones. This proposal envisions a new prototype for vertical housing in areas damaged by wild fires in Chile.

The project makes use of passive systems to mitigate wind and disperse water to prevent new fires. When dealing with forces so powerful, standard means of crisis-management often prove to be inefficient.

Whether certain region is struck by earthquake, flood or hurricane — help needs to arrive quickly. It is meant to serve as multi-purpose hub for any relief operation.

Because elements do not have to be transported in batches by trucks, it is easier and faster to reach zones cut off from the transportation network. This means that much less cleanup work competitiion required prior to setting up the camp. This is especially important in densely populated areas but elsewhere means that it is going to be possible to set up those temporary shelters closer to victims original homes.


The paddy field and Jinja complex also served as centers of everyday interaction.

Many local Jinja not only housed the relevant Kami deities but also served as a warehouse for harvests. Also, the biggest communal festival, Matsuri, happened during spring seeding and autumn harvesting. As cities expand, both rice farming and Jinja remains in the shadow of urban livings. Jinja complex is overshadowed by modern skyscrapers. However, more than two centuries ago, according to some ancient manuscripts, Izumo Shrine was said to slyscraper reaching 96m high above ground i. Forest fires are one of the greatest agents of degradation of ecosystems in the world.

Although fire is part of the natural dynamics competitoin some habitats, large disturbances cause a deterioration of their functionalities. Fire modifies biogeochemical cycles, produces changes in vegetation, soil, fauna, hydrological and geomorphological processes, water quality and even changes in the composition of the atmosphere.

Each of these elements puts at risk not only the existing geography, but also directly threatens population centers, putting at risk the lives of people, their goods, infrastructure, among other things. The season of forest fires left a record of destruction never before recorded in the south-central zone of Chile. The consequences of the above were 5, fires with an impact ofhectares, 2, homes.

The most serious case was the one in the town of Santa Olga, where the destruction exceeds 1, homes, destroying the entire city.

Reconstruction is an indisputable subject, but the existing model of growth by expansion left a clear vulnerability within the territory. The degraded soils, and the decrease of the vegetation among other variables produced by this settlement model, were part of the factors that modified the natural conditions, leaving the sector competigion. Broadway in downtown Los Angeles was one of the most famous street in United States and had the highest concentration of cinemas in the world by s.

The ornamental baroque style theaters witnessed the prosperity of Broadway in the past. However, with the decline of downtown and the migration of entertainment industry to Hollywood, Broadway became an abandoned area in downtown and is perceived as a dangerous location siyscraper night.

This proposal is evolp to revitalize the Broadway theater district and explore a universal strategy to preserve and renovate the historic ekyscraper area. The decay of downtown is an inevitable problem for most U. The crowded street, outdated infrastructure, poor building condition, lack of public space and messed environment all become the reason to push people away from these areas, where finally became the shelter for filth and crimes.

To overthrow this vicious circle, besides preserving historic buildings, we must inject new programs and create more public space to make these areas dynamic again. Instead of demolishing the historic building, we can find more space in the between and on the top of existing buildings, which provides us enough space to insert new programs and create more public space in an already high-density community.

The design uses lightweight steel truss grid to fill in copetition negative space of existing buildings and extend the concrete core of these buildings to support the whole structure system. The open structure allows light and wind to penetrate the whole building and creates a dynamic vertical street space. On the backside, we create a new performing arts complex including large theater, music hall, cinema, rehearsal rooms, live-house and outdoor music stage on a pervious parking lot.

The performing arts complex will be the center of future Broadway and revive the cultural activities of this area. The design is aimed to find this jewellery back and polish it to make it even brighter than before. The huge dam can be called as an anti-desertification wall, as it can increase the city area as well as the cultivated area by moving outwards until the soil inside the wall reaches steady state.


The beginning of the Timber Age Can high rise architecture act as a mechanism to manifest low carbon materials and environmental design principles allowing our cities to breathe? In recent years, the scarcity of natural resources tied with a push for greener construction methodologies has started to change perceptions of mass timber construction systems. Global Government and industry led initiatives into improving the sustainability and Carbon efficiencies of construction partnered with technological advancements in timber technologies will result in a rise of tall timber structures.

The project explores the possibilities of using timber for the creation of high rise architecture by carefully considering material sourcing, structural performance, environment, digital design and off site fabrication issues.

Implementing prefabricated timber systems not only reduces carbon emissions when compared with steel and concrete, but instead captures embodied carbon within the timber itself. The rule of thumb is that an average 1m3 of timber can store 1 ton of co2.

This means that architectural compeittion within the built environment can act as Carbon sinks thus improving the sustainability of our cities. This is a skyscraper that aims to rejuvenate the indigenous salt farming community of the great Rann in Gujarat, India, namely, skyyscraper Agariyas.

An ecological and social renaissance for the people of the cursed land has been sought for by providing them a structure which endeavours to achieve better opportunities for the people.

Inter societal islands arise due to isolated pattern of s,yscraper. An absolute absence of social and physical infrastructure is observed which renders the community incapable of mutual learning. Deteriorating health because of long exposure to immense salt and solar concentration further intensifies it.

The salt marsh betrays the community every monsoon, because the fields become completely submerged in water, making annual migration necessary. Standard, systematic and non-intermittent salt production throughout the year due to juxtaposed functions which provide ease in the output cycle. Integration of vacuum evaporation plant with the building gives rise to an effortless method of production.

Forging a resilient, permanent and sustainable setup with increased dependence of solar power creates a heterogeneous yet admissible ecosystem for the community. An increment in the efficiency of salt production from solar evaporation through introduction of novel methodology, machinery and community training boosts the comprehensive output.

Making use of the ample wind, wave, and tidal energy of this region, the structure would utilize a combination of 19 wind turbines, 4 wave power plants, and 6 tidal power turbines to create million kWh of renewable energy each year. However the electricity production is skysvraper one of many important functions such as living space, education, resource management, energy storage, competitioon and engineering.
