It aims to shed new light on the meaning and value of tall buildings in modern society from the perspectives of green, safety, and humanity.
Tall buildings are no longer just mere representations of modern cities; they are an integral part of our everyday life. They have expanded their role from providing space for commercial purposes to also include satisfying residential needs. They are fast becoming an important feat of human engineering, as they meet the growing demands of urban dwelling and reshaping the landscape of modern cities.
Now is the time to redefine the meaning and value of tall buildings in our modern society, by highlighting the aspects of green, safety, and humanity in tall buildings. In light of global climate change, public awareness of urban sustainability has forced designers to rethink and reinvent the role of the high-rise building type. They must contribute to the protection of endangered environments and offer sustainable alternatives to how cities operate.
Some of the multi-layered elements that participants should take into consideration include: the use of new materials, technologies, aesthetics, and novel spatial organizations, studies on globalization, flexibility, adaptability, and the digital revolution. This is also an investigation on public and private space and the role of the individual and the collective in the creation of a dynamic and adaptive vertical community.
There are no restrictions on site, program or size, although the project should be based on a “real” site(s) in a real location. The objective is to provide maximum freedom to the participants in proposing imaginative design ideas for new constructions.
