Jury feedback summary
The proposal questions the conventional flat-slab organization of high-rise buildings. It rethinks this arrangement by embedding a skyscraper with a host of new vertical connections, defining what is summarizes as a new “spatial experience, structural system, and circulation.” The exciting submission is complete with a number of excellent model photos and diagrams used to describe a curved floorplate that treats multiple levels as a single, continuous space. The jury questions the program type and encourages the designer to further consider how the building may be populated. Can such a new floor construction also bring about new program relationships for housing or offices? If so, such drawings and diagrams would be useful to strengthen the proposal.
