The annual <strong>Skyscraper Competition</strong> explores new possibilities of building high through the use of novel technologies, materials, programs, aesthetics, and spatial organizations. The competition challenges preconceived ideas, and as such, the results are received with a mix sentiment of excitement and misbelief. Many believe that these projects belong to science fiction, that would never be built, and let alone solve any of our current architectural and urban problems. eVolo Magazine seeks to enter the ranks of inspiring publications like <em>Lacerba</em> in Italy and <em>Le Figaro</em> in France which published conceptual projects by Futurists like Arne Hosek, Piero Portaluppi, and Sergei Lopati whose &ldquo;out of this world&rdquo; projects of the 1900&rsquo;s became a reality 100 years later.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p><p>It is eVolo Magazine&rsquo;s mission to keep promoting t...</p> https://archinect.com/news/article/149975217/last-call-registration-deadline-for-2017-fairy-tales-competition Last Call | Registration deadline for 2017 Fairy Tales Competition Sponsor 2016-10-25T13:45:00-04:00 >2016-10-25T13:47:49-04:00 <img src="https://d38w84nuu9j2kr.cloudfront.net/images/650x/ac/acgka4e37nee2aed.jpg" width="650" height="501" border="0" title="" alt="" /><a href="http://blankspaceproject.com/" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"><img alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/uploads/92/92k1x98i5jmudf7w.png"></a><em><strong>This post is brought to you by <a href="http://blankspaceproject.com/" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Blank Space</a>.</strong></em><br>&nbsp;<p>Next Wednesday, November 2nd,&nbsp;is the last day for regular registration in the <em><strong>Fairy Tales</strong></em> competition!
