the required space will be left to participants but must incorporate the specified spaces in this brief.
SPECIAL CONDITIONS: There is no restriction in terms of size, program or space distribution, however the proposal must be within the specified plot and include any specified space in the program and uses section above.
It is the organiser’s intention that participants are free to make the decision on the ratio, size, allocation and design layout of the Arcology Skyscraper proposed. Participants are free to distribute the required spaces within the Arcology according to their design to allow their ideas to shine through. This is only an ideas competition to investigate and challenge skyscraper design within a specific site context.
However exciting and challenging the creative opportunity presented with such loose parameters, it is important that proposals include the specified spaces in the brief.
