eVolo Magazine’s 2017 Skyscraper Competition Results Are In




This annual award has been running since 2006. And for more than a decade, the magazine has been awarding competitors base on their vision on how a skyscraper should look like, as well as on what kind of technology they used for it, the materials it would need, the aesthetics, and not to mention the organisations. The jury is on a constant lookout for ideas that can challenge our views on how we understand vertical architecture, as well as how these skyscrapers strike a balance between the human society and the surrounding natural environment.

With these being said, here are some of the contenders, as well as those who’ve won the competition.
