Architectural Contest – international search for a smart tower design concept

11 Feb 2014

London SkyScraper Design Competition

International Design Competition for Architects + Architecture Students and Graduates

TITLE:
Organic Skyscraper, LONDON

COMPETITION:
This international competition calls on and challenges participants to design or present a fresh concept for an Organic Skyscraper – a skyscraper that grows or changes form according to future requirement.

London Skyscraper Competition

The skyscraper will serve as a tech city (technology and digital media centered companies) within the area. The design proposal should be one with topology that allows for the possibility to grow as the need for more space becomes necessary in the future to counter today’s ever-increasing number of city commercial skyscrapers which are under utilised, sparsely occupied or even with empty floors. This has on some occasion been due to the trend for commissioning and constructing too many unnecessarily high skyscrapers resulting in low-density use or occupancy in major cities.

The design should be visually and aesthetically engaging, explore and investigate the possibilities for urban Skyscrapers that present the unique possibility to increase useable space vertically and horizontally as the need arises or even to shrink where there is space or height surplus to requirement. It should also maximise the positive impact of such a Vertical Structures whist minimising the negative.
