Участникам конкурса предстоит поработать над проектами обустройства внутренних дворов небоскреба J57 в китайском городе Чанша. Известность модульному небоскребу в 2015 году принес рекордный срок строительства – 19 дней. Общими усилиями конкурсантам нужно создать концепции 17 общественных пространств, которые в будущем могли бы стать частью повседневной жизни жильцов башни.
SkyCity is pleased to invite architects, designers, artists, engineers, scientists, conservationists, ambient warriors, tribesmen, digital nomads, craftsmen or basically anyone with great ideas from around the globe to take part in SkyCity Challenge 17. Our climate is changing, squalor, nationalism and inequality is rising, people are constantly moving into cities and the demand for a better and more sustainable living in urban areas continues to grow. The current ways are very limited and outdated and with the modern technology available we are able to create far better and more sophisticated spaces that could affect the very way of our living in the future …
Sky City envisions a world that purposefully uses its technology and communications for the best support of the environment and people, which allows all life to be in thriving harmony together. With the attention SkyCity had in the past, as a symbol of big scale solutions for the future we asks the following questions: “How can we leave our planet more beautiful for the next generations? How can we create a space where all nationalities can communicate as if it were a true collective? Perhaps we can create a progression of the United Nations – UN 2.0? How can SkyCity create a new way for housing and community building that has a positive impact globally? The Challenge is an experiment on how a vertical community in larger numbers of members could coexist in the future.
Established in 2015, BROAD Town is one of the world’s most modern communities. We recognize the need to redefine skyscraper design implementing new technologies, materials, programs, aesthetics and spatial organizations. Along with studies on globalization, adaptability, the digital revolution, environmental impact, and cooperative relations between communities, we see an opportunity to inspire humanity on moving forward on a progressive path. It is a hub that examines the relationship between co-living and community set within the natural world, the skyscrapers and the city.
We hope SkyCity will be one of many expressions of its kind around the globe, with each location representing unique culture and meeting its needs, while weaving threads of strengths and inspirations from outside communities, to further produce an elaborate web of sustainable cooperatives around the world. We invite you to co-create SkyCity with us, your submission will help SkyCity define itself!
