eVolo Magazine has announced the winners of its 2015 Skyscraper Competition and, as is the case every year, the final designs are pretty eye-catching and ambitious. The competition, which was launched almost a decade ago, was designed to “challenge the way we understand vertical architecture and its relationship with the natural and built environments.” This year, eVolo received 480 submissions and has selected 3 winners and 15 honorable mentions.
The winners of eVolo magazine’s 7th Skyscraper Competition have been announced! This year the publication, which has hosted the prestigious competition since 2006, received 625 submissions from 83 different countries, but only 3 of the most thought-provoking projects were selected as the winners. From floating (on-water and in-midair) skyscrapers to morphing structures, each of these futuristic designs not only resembles something out of a sci-fi film, but more importantly, radically defies our understanding of vertical architecture, creatively explores new technologies, and proposes solutions for a more sustainable urban future.
