P8 News | 04 16, 2017

Sky City 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 Sky City Championship Contest.The contest is an experiment on how a vertical community in a larger numbers of members could coexist 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.



Sky City is currently unoccupied and contains 17 hollow internal courtyards interconnected by a long spiral bike ramp that ends on the top of the 57th floor of the skyscraper. The goal is to create 17 public spaces that will interact with the future inhabitants of the tower. Afterwards we plan to convert the rest of the tower into an alternative co-housing / co-living complex we call Sky City. There are spatial restrictions in regards to site, program or size. Each courtyard is 20m long, 16m wide and 11m high with adjacent balconies throughout three floors. Lit by efficient & low energy consumption LED lights. We have selected 6 different categories or themes the applicants must select for their design of their courtyards. The 17 spaces are all the same and their succession is irrelevant. The objective is to provide maximum freedom to the participants to engage the project without constraints in the most creative way.
