Next semester at the University of Technology, Sydney (UTS) I’ll be exploring High-Rise Architecture and vertical density with Nick Sissions – I recently purchased Skyscraper for the XXI century by eVolvo in preparation for some awesome design work! The book is an investigation by architects, students and designers on the future of the Skyscraper, presents the best 60 projects of the 06, 07 and 08 Skyscraper competition. Ill be sure to put up my scheme for feedback – Please feel free to comment if you have any nice precedents you would like to share.
Additionally, the winners of the 09 Skyscraper competition have been announced. The competition called for innovative designs that take into consideration the historical and social context, the existing urban fabric, the human scale, and the environment. eVolo received 416 projects from 64 different countries and awarded 3 winners and 15 special mentions, to see the full listing visit http://www.evolo-arch.com/
