After a successful completion of our first challenge last year, SkyCity again, is pleased to invite architects, designers, artists, engineers, scientists, conservationists, digital nomads, craftsmen or basically anyone with great ideas from around the globe to take part in the SkyCity Challenge 19, “THE FUTURE OF HOUSING”. The current ways of building are affecting the environment we are living in, they are limited and outdated. We believe with the modern technology available, we are able to create far more sophisticated homes that could revolutionize the future of housing.
We hope this new prefab construction prototype will be one of its kind, openly shared around the globe, with each location representing a unique culture inspired by world communities. We hope to create a sustainable building set available to the cooperatives around the world. Therefore, we invite you to co-create this “FUTURE OF HOUSING” in SkyCity with us.
