Here are some more details from eVolo:


EVOLO SKYSCRAPERS BOOK

Established in 2006, the eVolo Skyscraper Competition is one of the world’s most prestigious awards for high-rise architecture.

competition_evolo

The contest recognizes outstanding ideas that redefine skyscraper design through the implementation of new technologies, materials, programs, aesthetics, and spatial organizations.

competition_evolo

Studies on globalization, flexibility, adaptability, and the digital revolution are some of the multi-layered elements of the competition.

competition_evolo

It is an investigation on the public and private space and the role of the individual and the collective in the creation of dynamic and adaptive vertical communities.

competition_evolo

Over the last six years, an international panel of renowned architects, engineers, and city planners have reviewed more than 4,000 projects submitted from 168 countries around the world.

Participants include professional architects and designers, as well as students and artists.

This book is the compilation of 300 outstanding projects selected for their innovative concepts that challenge the way we understand architecture and their relationship with the natural and built environments.

competition_evolo

The projects have been organized in six chapters that describe the current position and the future of vertical architecture and urbanism. The first chapter, Technological Advances, is an investigation on the use of digital tools and computing fabrication.

competition_evolo

Ecological Urbanism explores sustainable systems, including new materials and clean energy generation processes to achieve zero-net-energy buildings.

competition_evolo

Projects that analyze the reconfiguration of existing cities and the colonization of new environments, such as underwater cities and floating habitats, are part of New Frontiers.

competition_evolo

The improvement of our way of living is the topic of the fourth chapter, Social Solutions, which is a collection of ideas that respond to social, cultural, and economic problems.

competition_evolo

A more experimental approach to architectural design is exposed in Morphotectonic Aesthetics, with proposals that use fields of data and self-regulating systems to respond to internal and external stimuli -the results are fascinating explorations of function and form.

competition_evolo

Finally, Urban Theories and Strategies is a group of projects that establish new methods to alleviate the major problems of the contemporary city, including the scarcity of natural resources and infrastructure, and the exponential increase of inhabitants.

competition_evolo

The eVolo Skyscraper Competition is a forum for the discussion, debate, and development of avant-garde architectural design in the 21st century. eVolo is committed to stimulating the imagination of designers around the world – thinkers that envision the future of our cities and a new way of life.
