New York Horizon

A giant hole in the ground in the center of New York City, wins skyscraper competition.

This is the award-winning in the evolo skyscraper competition concept, by Yitan Sun and Jianshi Wu, who have envisioned digging down New York’s Central Park, to create a more natural landscape.

The winners explain:

“Is there a way to make Central Park available to more people? Our proposal is a hybrid multi-functional mega structure. Not by building up, but by digging down, it reveals the bedrock (mountain) that was hidden under Central Park, and creates space along the new cliff. The ambition is to reverse the traditional relationship between landscape and architecture, in a way that every occupiable space has direct connection to the nature.”
