Not just a meandering line etched in the sky. Not just a cutout or silhouette. Beyond restricting definitions, skylines can be seen as infusions of perception, imagination and desire. Every time a building mushrooms in a city, the skyline is altered. But transformation, not change, is the goal of invention. We invite designs concepts for an iconic structure — building, tower and institution — that can change the perception of the urban skyline.
Everything is possible.
We seek visions, not designs; a combination of architectural strategies with thought provoking concepts. The sky is literally the limit; there are no restrictions with regard to the choice of site, program or size. Participants are free to design their own brief and explore the themes potential. Armed with maximum liberty, participants must propose innovative ideas for this fascinating architectural genre. The scope of the design should not be limited to merely creation of an iconic image but rather to re-look at self-other, self-city, self-environment equations and discover the elusive state of equilibrium.
The driving ambition of the global city is to acquire an identity for itself. An identity imprinted on its inhabitants that builds a sense of community in their isolated urban domains. HP Skyline 2020 is meant to open us up to infinite latent possibilities, which can transform our city and alter the way future generations experience the city through the lens of its skyline.
