Welcome to the Gotham of the Future: Winners of Metropolis Magazine's Living Cities Design Competition
May 3, 2014
If you want to know what NYC might look like in the future, exploring the space aged concepts from Metropolis Magazine's Living Cities Competition gives you a head start.
The city is expected to gain a million more residents by 2040, and 'Living Cities' sought to address this urban influx. Participants were tasked with formulating proposals for a residential tower 30-40 stories tall to be sited within the five boroughs of New York. All designs were also required to use and articulate, in some detail, an innovative structural steel system. Sustainability, multi-use strategies, lifestyle amenities, and multi-generational design were further considerations to be folded into the final submissions.
Chad Kellogg, Matthew Bowles, Nina Mahjoub of AMLGM imagined a massive transportation-entertainment-and-residential hub called Urban Alloy that has outstretched tendrils which act as tunnels for subway and railway trains.
Andrew Duffin and NBRS+Partners devised a twisting, diagrid-laden tower called Vivo that straddle a portion of the High Line.
