Honorable Mention : Evolo Skyscraper Competition 2016, Honorable Mention

One of 24 projects selected out of a pool of nearly 800, our entry 'The Valley of Giants", was chosen to be published in the 2016 EVOLO Skyscraper Competition.

My partner Galo Canizares Proano (of Office CA) and I conceived of a series of monumental towers configured within the deserts of southern Algeria, which were designed to rehabilitate land and establish permanent oases to combat desertification.

Traditionally, the area has fostered nomadic tribes and multiple trade routes extending through West Africa, but with shifting climate, international disputes, and a rise of hostile domestic terrorism; the area has deteriorated due to harsher summers, less rainfall, and more traffic from the streams of refugees.

The towers contain levels of greenhouses which generate fresh air, seeds, and other produce; while also tapping into the deep underground aquifers beneath the Sahara. Emitting seeds and mist clouds, these towers become a passive rehabilitative system. Providing fresh resources, injecting nature, establishing new micro climates along the historic trade routes of the land.

Along with being published in the upcoming issue of EVOLO Skyscrapers 3, this entry can be seen on the EVOLO websites, along with features on ArchDaily, Designboom, Bustler, and ArchRecord.


ARCHOUTLOUD : Vertical Cemetery Top 50 Entries, Honorable Mention

With over 700 submissions, this entry "Eidolon" was given a Top 50 placement by the jury of ARCH OUT LOUD'S : Vertical Cemetery competition.

My partner, Galo Canizares Proano of Office ca, and I constructed a labyrinthine tower in the heart of Shinjuku Japan. The structure itself was a maze of columbarium walls, rock-like data interfaces for communication with the remembered, and the potential to keep growing upwards as the city aged.
