eVolo Magazine, tradicional publicação de projetos e design de arquitetura, de qual o blog é parceiro de divulgação, apresenta os projetos ganhadores e menções honrosas do concurso referente a 2021:.

eVolo Magazine is pleased to announce the winners of the 2021 Skyscraper Competition. The Jury selected 3 winners and 20 honorable mentions from 492 projects received. The annual award established in 2006 recognizes visionary ideas that through the novel use of technology, materials, programs, aesthetics, and spatial organizations, challenge the way we understand vertical architecture and its relationship with the natural and built environments.

The FIRST PLACE was awarded to LIVING SKYSCRAPER designed by Andrii Lesiuk, Mykhaylo Kohut, Sofiia Shkoliar, Kateryna Ivashchuk, Nazarii Duda, Mariia Shkolnyk, Oksana-Daryna Kytsiuk, and Andrii Honcharenko from Ukraine. The project investigates the use of genetically modified trees to shape them into living skyscrapers that offer green habitable spaces to cities.

The recipients of the SECOND PLACE are Amit Deutch, Roni Dominitz, and Tamar Kerber from Israel for the project LLUVIOSO SKYSCRAPER. This novel high-rise gathers rainwater to refill Mexico City’s groundwater supply.

HMONG SKYSCRAPER designed by Xiangshu Kong, Xiaoyong Zhang, and Mingsong Sun from China received the THIRD PLACE. The proposal envisions a sky frame that allows traditional Hmong houses to plug in. The skyscraper grows vertically and horizontally with the addition of urban spaces.

The HONORABLE MENTIONS are a collection of projects that use modern technologies and materials to offer new high-rise solutions. Some of these proposals include urban parasitic systems, vertical urban fabrics, and plug-in cities among other novel designs.

The Jury was formed by Koray Duman [Principal, Büro Koray Duman], Reza Najafian [Principal, ReNa Design], Arto Ollila [Partner, Aarti Ollila Ristola], Eric Parry [Principal, Eric Parry Architects], and Isa Ye [Founder, designverse. Founder, Young Bird Plan]

Living Skyscraper For New York City

One of the main goals of the project is to grow a living skyscraper on the principle of sustainable architecture.

The building will function in the middle of a grey megalopolis and solve a number of important environmental and urban issues.  By analyzing the active process of urbanization and a decrease in the percentage of green spaces as a phenomenon that provokes a number of environmental problems.

We believe that by integrating genetically modified trees during the stage of their growth and development into architecture, we can restore the balance between the digitalized megacities and the Earth’s resources, which are gradually depleted.

A skyscraper tree is a separate living organism with its own root system, irrigation, care mechanisms, and features of development focused on its adaptation to use in architecture. It is a group of unique fast-growing and tall hardwood deciduous trees, which are planted in groups in specially prepared soil (to obtain resources) and in the process of their growth from a unique architectural volume.

The plant absorbs water and nutrients, which are distributed from root to tip. At the same time, the growth of the trunk circumference will gradually increase the strength of the wood structure and improve its self-supporting properties. Read the rest of this entry »

Lluvioso Skyscraper Collects Rainwater And Replenishes Groundwater In Mexico City

By: admin | May – 3 – 2021

Second Place
2021 Skyscraper Competition

Amit Deutch, Roni Dominitz, Tamar Kerber

The Lluvioso groundwater refilling facility is a mixed-use high-rise structure designed as a response to Mexico City’s variable water-related issues such as flooding, water shortage, and their side effects. The solution we examined in our project utilizes the high-rise altitude to gather rainwater and refill the city’s groundwater supply.

This field of high-rise structures spread out over the city’s flood risk areas, at a height of 400m, would harvest rainwater using an external membrane layer detaching from the building’s facade. The external layer consists of 10 wings, anchored to the main structure at a height of 100m in order to allow the city’s future vertical growth. Thus, resulting in a 600m diameter rain-water collecting Canopée covering a typical city quarter. The collected water would then be directed down into the aquifer as well as upwards towards a pendulum water tank (for self-use). This proposal seeks to reduce flood damage, fill the aquifer and enhance the water supply for the city’s residents. Read the rest of this entry »

Hmong Skyscraper Is A Stack Of Traditional Houses Unified By Vertical Public Space

By: admin | May – 3 – 2021

Third Place
2021 Skyscraper Competition

Xiangshu Kong, Xiaoyong Zhang, Mingsong Sun

Hmong in China is an ancient nationality, mainly living in Yunnan province. Hmong has its own language, architecture, and lifestyle. However, this group of special minority cultures is being gradually swallowed by modern culture. Many Hmong cultural customs have disappeared, and even many Hmong people’s houses have been demolished or will be.

In order to build a well-off society in an all-around way, the Chinese government has issued relocation policies to the villages to help the Hmong stay away from their dilapidated places of residence and move to the suburbs of cities to provide a modern and affluent life. Although the original intention of the government is good, more and more ethnic minorities are unable to adapt to the new places of residence. They miss their arable land, yards, streams, and so on. We try to design a skyscraper. We try our best to keep farmers’ memory and lifestyle of their original hometown, and at the same time let them enjoy the convenience of modern urbanization.
