Five finalists have recently been announced in the 6th International Student Tall Building Design Competition, hosted annually by the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat.
Under the theme Connecting the City: People, Density, & Infrastructure, the contest invited students from around the world to imagine how tall buildings could support vital elements of urban infrastructure — traditionally restricted to the ground level — also in great heights, continuing the city up and into the building, and thus contributing to increased density.
From 229 submissions, 25 semifinalists were selected in the first round of the competition, from which 5 finalists were plucked by the second-round jury comprised of Domenic Alvaro (Jury Chair, Woods Bagot); Ron Klemencic (Magnusson Klemencic Associates); James Parakh (City of Toronto Planning Department); Michele Pasca di Magliano (Zaha Hadid Architects); and Swinal Samant (National University of Singapore).
Names of the finalists won't be revealed until the official announcement of winners at CTBUH's annual conference in Sydney later this month, but we do know that the five remaining entries come from the University of Westminster (2 entries), Anhui Jianzhu University, Inner Mongolia University of Technology, and Xi'an Jiaotong Liverpool University.
