skyscraper |as| urban fence

Conceived for the Evolo skyscraper competition, this project set in rural China explores our traditional notion of a skyscraper.  Designed in collaboration with Isaac Miller.  This design challenges us to rethink the modern concept of horizontal city growth, and consider arranging homes, neighborhoods, and cities, vertically.  Set up as a series of towers, the urban fence created by the skyscraper creates a boundary condition, halting horizontal sprawl, and encourages living arrangements and mixed use areas to grow upward, not outward. 

My responsibilities included design of the building, floor plans, and interior renderings. 

Modeled with Revit 2010, rendered with 3D Studio Max.
