Live x Learn - Discovering a vertical university

Architecture Competition

INTRODUCTION

As our cities grow denser, tall buildings are not a luxury anymore but a necessity today. With the rampant growth of technology and the density we have to mitigate with - the overlaps between the dynamic nature of spaces are now gaining more and more evident form. For instance, restaurants which work as a coworking space in the morning, and a club by the night.


Our lives are full of such examples where the nature of spaces is bending/blending every day. Hybrid Futures ‘19 is open ideas exercise that explores such programmatic ramifications in a much futuristic timeline and high-density scenarios.

OBJECTIVE

The fundamental aspects of learning in the coming decades - with more open learning technology, this challenge engages with a skyscraper that serves as both - A University (Public) and Housing Tower (Private). With the increasing demand for housing and the growing popularity of working from anywhere, the commute will slowly lose relevance for a lot of emerging job sectors in the future. Design challenge: How will your idea of a tall building that houses these two evident typologies of today give birth to a more hybrid future?

JUDGING CRITERIA & JUDGES

The entries will be judged by an international jury of the competition on the following criteria:

Presentation: The fundamental to a good entry is a good presentation.

Concept/Idea: Quality of thought and intent in the pre-design phase.

Spaces/Programme: How the spaces are calculated and ordered.

Design Outcome The final architectural outcome of the solution.

The judging panel can also add other criteria based on their internal discussions - which will be in line with the problem statement. Participants are advised to fulfill the above-given criteria first in their design. Names of the jury panel will be announced soon.
