Bee Breeders have announced the winners of the SKYHIVE Skyscraper Challenge. The purpose of the competition was to allow architects, design students, engineers, and artists from all over the world to "generate design ideas for iconic high rise buildings in cities around the globe."

First Prize

Aero Hive: Suraksha Acharya, Midori Architects

First Prize
First Prize

Suraksha Acharya is the Principal Architect at Midori Architects, an architecture firm in India specializing in sustainable design. Their winning design, located in Hong Kong, utilizes "vertical diaphragms in the form of green atriums" throughout the structure that clean the air throughout the building.

First Prize
First Prize

Aero Hive aims to challenge the common belief that contemporary tall buildings cannot be ventilated naturally due to their height and offers pause from the typically hermetically sealed glass boxes, serving as a model of sustainability.

Second Prize

Chicago Pillar: Jon Carag, Klein & Hoffman

Second Prize
Second Prize

Located on the famous site of the Chicago Spire, this design utilizes a simple cylindrical tower structure that is wrapped in a ribbon of perimeter green spaces that transform the typical office. The new plaza also creates an extension of the northside Riverwalk to the Chicago River, and a new bridge across the Ogden Slip canal presents a clear path to the Navy Pier.

Second Prize
Second Prize

The building harvests wind power through cylindrical wind turbines covering the double skin facade and harvests rainwater through collection troughs at each floor line. The collected rainwater immediately waters the office garden at each floor. The "Living Facade" maximizes use of a tower's extensive facade surface area, but blends these sustainable services into a new facade aesthetic.

Third Prize

The Wall: Elizabeth Compeán Michel, Gabriel Alejandro Madrigal Betancourt, Juan Jesús García Castro, Rodrigo Zertuche Rodríguez, Universidad Autonoma de San Luis Potosi

Third Prize
Third Prize

Four students from the Universidad Autonoma de San Luis Potosi in Mexico worked together to design The Wall along the Mexican-US border. The Wall addresses the problem of immigration, but "instead of dividing, it unites people." The building itself has all of the necessary qualities for the operation and survival of a city, all-encompassing a "virtual 40.5 kilometers."

Third Prize
Third Prize

The Wall is an intermediate point where possibilites and opportunities are endless.

Green Award

Evoluzione: Alessandro Buffi, Gian Maria Angelini

Green Award
Green Award

Alessandro Buffi and Gian Maria Angelini, two young architects from Italy, propose instead of a from, "an architectural model characterized by variety and thus by adaptive behavior." The building is a model that can seemingly be placed in any city because the context for the design is "planet earth."

Green Award
Green Award

The result is a skyscraper capable of meeting the requirements of flexibility, comfort and sustainability related to a working environment in continuous evolution.
