Type: Ideas competitions


NYVC Ideas Competition New York is the emblematic city of professional progress, great ambitions and large corporations. A place where the idea of success in society is pursued although in many cases it is accompanied by long working hours. People spend a third of the day or more in workspaces and most offices were designed to increase productivity regardless of the spatial quality or well-being of employees. 

We propose an ideas competition for a new tower with a mixed-use program in the city of New York. A large hybrid building that generates quality work spaces, temporary housing, cultural and leisure spaces. A small vertical city for the city of the 21st century, where urban life is condensed and integrated into the public spaces in New York. Can a mixed-use building generate productive spaces and collective spaces for the entire enjoyment of the community?

Elegibility: Students & Young Architects

Prizes: 5000€ Considered for publication in Architecture Magazine and blogs. 1 year subscription to architecture magazine and ARCHcase Premium.
