The annual Skyscraper Competition organized by eVolo has become an important architectural prize with high media attention.
The 2008 edition was published by more than ten architecture and design magazines and by several news, fashion, and art publications.
The eVolo Book with the best projects of the first three years has received excellent reviews and has been included in the catalog for the Book Expo America, Frankfurt Book Fair, and Beijing Book Fair.
For the 2009 edition eVolo invites architects, engineers, and designers to continue exploring on new ideas and concepts for vertical density.
Skyscrapers have been springing up in fast-developing countries without careful consideration of the urban fabric, environmental effects, and quality of life.
The 2009 competition calls for innovative designs for the XXI Century which takes into consideration the historical and social context, the existing urban fabric, the human scale, and the environment.
There is no restriction on site, height or shape.
The idea is to give the designers enough freedom to address the challenge in the most creative and innovative way.
Designs must be technologically feasible and environmentally responsible.
The projects should also investigate on the urban and private space as well as the definition of new programmes for a vertical structure.
