Description
Skyscrapers have been springing up in fast-developing countries without careful consideration of the Urban fabric, environmental effects, and quality of life. The 2009 competition calls for innovative designs for the XXI Century which takes into consideration the historical and social context, the existingUrban fabric, the human scale, and the environment.

There is no restriction on site, height or shape. The idea is to give the designers enough freedom to address the challenge in the most creative and innovative way. Designs must be technologically feasible and environmentally responsible. The projects should also investigate on the urban and private space as well as the definition of new programmes for a vertical structure.
