iscrizione entro il 29 novembre 2017 | consegna entro il 20 dicembre 2017
Sono aperte le iscrizioni al concorso di architettura "SKYHIVE Skyscraper Challenge" organizzato da Bee Breeders, in collaborazione con Manipal Executive Education.
Le risorse naturali scarseggiamo ma con le più recenti tecnologie è possibile reinventare il concetto di "grattacielo". Si chiede ai partecipanti di creare una torre utilizzando tecnologie e materiali avanzati con nuove organizzazioni spaziali basandosi sugli ultimi studi sulla globalizzazione, flessibilità, adattabilità e sulla rivoluzione digitale.
Il concorso SKYHIVE va considerato come un momento di riflessione sul rapporto tra grattacielo e ambiente, grattacielo e comunità, grattacielo e città.
Il vincitore oltre a ricevere un premio di U$ 3.000 potrà partecipare gratuitamente al Global Tall Building Studio - Design Workshop in Dubai che si terrà nella primavera del 2018.
Bee Breeders, in partnership with the Manipal Executive Education, is calling for submissions for the SKYHIVE Skyscraper Challenge architecture competition.
Participants are tasked with researching and implementing the latest technologies to reinvent the very concept of a skyscraper. Taking into account the scarcity of natural resources, and the potential strain on the current infrastructure, this open ideas competition is a chance for architecture enthusiasts to spread their creative wings and create the skyscraper of the 21st century.
The participants are permitted to choose a hypothetical site (130m x 80m) accessed by roads on two sides both longer and shorter side of the site, located in a city of their choice and follow the local bye laws of the city municipal rules and regulations as prescribed. The site context and surroundings are to be assumed. This is an open architecture ideas competition, and as such participants have complete freedom to interpret the brief in the most creative way possible. Competition aims for the submitted projects that have the potential to rewrite the definition of the modern-day skyscraper.
Competition is open to all. No professional qualification is required. Design proposals can be developed individually or by teams (4 team members maximum).
