Project Description: Get Your Computer Game On – Cause the Evolo Competition is coming up! eVolo Architecture competition is open to architects, engineers and designers who want to explore their wicked side of funky architecture. The Skyscraper 08 competitions aims to bring about competition entries that explore the idea of vertical density, particularly in light of the mass sprawl of skyscraper buildings that is being seen in developing nations. These buildings should address environmental and social implications, but do so in an organically stimulating way. Your game must be on to enter this beast, as the competition is fierce. This post featuers last year’s third place winner Mitchell Joachim and Neri Oxman.
