HP Skyline 2020 Competition explores the future design of urban cityscapes.
The City and the Skyline project by Anto Gloren and Sayali Athale recently won the HP Skyline 2020 Competition held in India. The competition’s aim was to encourage Indian architects, artists and designers to reinvent India’s skyline and cater to the growing needs of its population. The winning concept is a multi-tiered, sustainable vertical farm containing a series of modular housing units that can be added or removed based on need, with each individual home supporting a green roof. The scalable idea places agricultural production in the hands of its residents, theoretically providing access to better food, while cutting down on environmental impact.
