As our cities grow denser, tall buildings are not a luxury any more but a necessity today. With rampant growth of technology, and the density we have to mitigate with – the overlaps between dynamic nature of spaces is now gaining more and more evident form. For instance restaurants which works as a co-working space in the morning, and a club by the night – our lives are full of such examples where the nature of spaces are bending/blending every day. Hybrid Futures ‘19 is an open ideas competition that explores such programmatic ramifications in a much futuristic timeline and high density scenarios.

The fundamental aspects of work in the coming decades – with a more faster transit technologies, this challenge engages with a skyscraper that serves as both – A workplace (Private & Public) and A fly hub (Public & Private). With decreasing popularity of surface commute (Cars) with slower / unpleasant / space consuming qualities, and lowering costs of air travel with less restrictions, both these typologies are expected to soar in future. Design challenge: How will your idea of a tall building that houses these two evident typologies of today give birth to a more hybrid future?
