Description
The skyline rises in tandem with the population of the city. Demographers predict that New York alone will add one million more residents by 2040. Finding housing will pose a crisis for hundreds of thousands of them, unless new residential towers are built to house this urban influx.

The Living Cities design competition asks professionals and students in architecture and engineering to share their vision of multi-use residential towers for the 21st century. All proposals must use a steel structural system, be 30 to 40 stories, and be sited within the five boroughs of New York. Considerations of changing workforce demographics and tenant lifestyle amenities with the role that a building’s form and features play related to constructability and sustainability are vital.
