Reimagine Structure. Alla ricerca di un nuovo involucro integrato alla struttura dei grattacieli

concorso di idee

consegna entro il 1° febbraio 2017

Metals in Construction magazine 2017 Design Challenge invita architetti e ingegneri a inviare la loro visione di un grattacielo capace di integrare il suo involucro all'interno della struttura.

Alcuni studi nell'ambito della sostenibilità mostrano che la quantità di emissioni di CO2 dovuta alla produzione di materiali da costruzione rappresenta più del 50 percento dell'energia consumata durante la vita di un edificio. Se questo edificio è ad alta efficienze energetica le emissioni di CO2 possono rappresentare quasi il 300 per cento del consumo di energia.

Sostituendo una cornice ibrida e la tipica pelle costituita da facciate continue in alluminio e vetro si possono eliminare 10 o 15 piedi quadrati per facciata. Riducendo la quantità di materiale necessaria per la costruzione, si limita la produzione di CO2 e il consumo energetico.

Il vincitore riceverà un premio di 15.000 $. La consegna dovrà essere effettuata entro il 1° febbraio 2017.

The Metals in Construction magazine 2017 Design Challenge invites architects and engineers to reduce embodied energy by submitting their design for a high-rise building that integrates its enclosure with its structure.

Substituting a hybrid frame and skin structure for the typical aluminum-and-glass curtain wall can eliminate 10 to 15 pounds per square foot of facade, minimizing the materials used in the building's construction. Studies show that the amount of CO2 emissions embodied in producing construction materials accounts for more than 50 percent of the energy consumed during a building's lifetime. In highly energy efficient buildings, embodied emissions can account for almost 300 percent of that energy consumption.

Your design must fully integrate the building's systems that provide environmental protection and resistance to wind and seismic forces. Entries will be judged on the amount of embodied energy reduced in the form of building mass, as well as on the overall performance of the enclosure.

ELIGIBILITY

The Metals in Construction magazine 2017 Design Challenge is open to both students and professionals in the architecture and engineering disciplines. Employees of sponsors are not eligible. All entrants agree to be bound by the Official Rules. Each proposal is expected to fulfill the design criteria outlined in the Design Brief.

REGISTRATION AND SUBMISSION

Entries must be submitted electronically via the Registration form on www.metalsinconstruction.org.

The online Registration form allows entrants to provide a Proposal Summary and Proposal Visualization in the form of a multi-page PDF file. Linked or embedded objects will not be judged. If an attached file is corrupt, we will contact the applicant for a replacement file, which must be received no later than February 1, 2017, at 11:59 p.m. EST.

FEES

The entry fee for the competition is $100 per team or individual entrant; fee changes to $125 after November 15, 2016.

PRIZE

One grand prize of $15,000 to be awarded at a half-day conference at The TimesCenter in New York City on Monday, February 29, 2017. Along with the winner(s), up to 15 honorable mentions will be chosen for presentation and discussion at the conference.

The winner and the top five finalists will also be published in Metals in Construction magazine and its digital platforms.
