ARCHITECTURE AND DESIGN journal eVolo Magazine has announced this year’s winners of its annual Skyscraper Competition, which invites submissions offering a redefintion and revision of skyscraper design.
EVolo says it received 715 projects from 95 countries across five continents.
The international judging panel awarded prizes and honourable mentions after considering a wide range of criteria which included the use of new technologies, materials, flexibility, adaptability, and the role of individuals and collectives in creating “a dynamic and adaptive vertical community”.
The three prize-winning entries all integrated a strong emphasis on sustainable energy in their designs.
