Участникам нужно предложить концептуальные идеи по возвращению биоразнообразия в Нью-Йорк, а точнее в центральную часть Манхэттена, через футуристический «зеленый» небоскреб. Формат подачи работ – три рисунка.
In this competition, we encourage participants to come up with visionary concepts for a green skyscraper – Only 3 drawings, absolute freedom of scale and program dimensions.
Participants are asked to propose conceptual ideas to bring biodiversity back to New York City, more specifically to Midtown Manhattan, through a futuristic green skyscraper.
As the world becomes more urbanized, this competitions’ purpose is to emphasise the importance of providing a synergy between architecture and biodiversity. By imagining a world where nature and people coexist as much as possible, it’s up to the participant to come to a very high degree of interaction between these two entities in many possible ways.
As designers, how can we bring biodiversity into architecture through the use of new technologies, materials, programs, aesthetics, and spatial organizations?
Manhattan Wildscraper aims to answer those questions with a particular focus on biodiversity and on the relationship between humans and nature.
