Reach to the skies: 2015 Prize laureates Evolvo
• Reach to the skies: Prize laureates Evolvo 2015
Evolvo Award was established in 2006, is devoted to the so-called "vertical existence" - it's outstanding architectural ideas in the construction of skyscrapers.
"Through the innovative use of technologies, materials, programs, aesthetics, and spatial organization of these ideas challenge our understanding of the vertical architecture and its relationship with nature and the man-made environment," - say the founders of the award.
In 2015, a jury of leading experts of the industry and the architectural design has selected three winners and highlighted the fifteen works. We offer to admire the futuristic skyscrapers.
1st place. "The essence of the" skyscraper. Eva Odyas, Agnieszka Morga, Konrad Bazan, Jakub OMP, Poland. In the densely populated center of the city - a secret garden, which combines architecture and nature. The main objective of the project - to place nearhitekturny phenomenon in the urban area. The main body of the building is divided into eleven natural landscapes. They form a natural way due to a sequence comprising a water floors, aquariums, jungles, and more.
2 nd place. Invisible perception skyscraper "Shanti". Suraksha Bhatla, Sharan Sundar, India. The project - a solution for fishermen in Nochikuppame. The vertical structure consists of construction debris type pipes and fittings.
third place. Kibertopiya: the future of the architectural space, the death of analog cities. Egor Orlov, Russia. Complex spatial structure of the future metropolis combines physical and digital worlds. Floor part of a skyscraper is constantly growing and developing spatial complex. Of frame constructions and spatial elements, printed the 3D-printer, there is a structure for subsequent changes.
Biopiramida: combating desertification. David Sepulveda, Wagdi Moussa, Ishaan Kumar, Wesley Townsend, Colin Joyce, Arianna Armelli Salvador Juarez, USA. Authors of the project are destroying the distinction between cultural heritage and recreational areas. Space skyscraper biopiramidy unite Egypt's capital Cairo and the legendary pyramids in the Sahara desert.
Catcher clouds. Taehan Kim, Song Li Li, Ha Yushin, the Republic of Korea. Fishing and redistribution of clouds. Moving clouds - from where they lacking in abundance, where they are not enough. The project will change the color of the planet Earth.
Vertical plants in New York. Stuart Beattie, United Kingdom. In this project we investigate alternative ineffective horizontal industrial building.
Exploring the Arctic: a multifunctional complex in Dixon harbor. Nikolay Zaitsev, Elizabeth Lopatin, Russia. The project involves the complete transformation of the Arctic port. You need to create comfortable conditions for living and working in one of the most strategically important ports of the Northern Sea Route. The original idea - to design man-made microcosm separated from the rigid arctic natural conditions, but provides for a dynamic balance between man and nature.
Times Skvertikal 3015. Blake Freitas, Grace Chen, Alex Kararavokiris, USA. Our planet is overpopulated, and this project - a chance to explore the spatial and natural potential of the vertical of existence. The tower will solve the problem of overcrowding, farm production, oxygen production and aging infrastructure.
Deep skin: Skyscrapers in New York as a changing body. Yunsu Choung, Zhang Ge, Chuantszinvey Wang, China. The design of a skyscraper close to the structure of the skin of a living organism, or rather, like a shark's skin.
The tower of refuge. Tsidan Chen, China. Noah's Ark to maintain the diversity of living organisms. It guarantees the availability of three vital elements: light, air and water.
Air monument: atmospheric database. Shi Yuqing, Hu Yifei Zhang Tszyuntun, China. "We hope that this building will automatically make the air intake and store samples," - say the authors.
Aurora in Chernobyl. Tszehua Zhang, Song Qiang, Liu Yamen, China. The project is for those who want to return to Chernobyl. Skyscraper comprises an air cleaning system and water, the internal devices operate by solar energy. The authors promise that their project - a Garden of Eden, from which a new life will begin to secure Chernobyl.
Oasis Noah vertical biomedia. Ma Idun, Chzhunhuey Zhu, Qin Chzhengu, Zhe Jiang, China. Transforms rigs in biological media, which will immediately respond to an oil spill and restore the ecosystem and to give shelter to victims living organisms. The spilled oil will be processed into the catalyst and building materials. The skyscraper will serve as a place for relaxation and exploration. Underwater structures are secured to the pipes with floating bases at the ends.
