Live x Learn
As our cities grow denser, tall buildings are not a luxury any more but a necessity today. With the rampant growth of technology and the density we have to mitigate with - the overlaps between the dynamic nature of spaces are now gaining more and more evident form. For instance, restaurants which work as a coworking 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 open ideas exercise that explores such programmatic ramifications in a much futuristic timeline and high-density scenarios.
The fundamental aspects of learning in the coming decades - with more open learning technology, this challenge engages with a skyscraper that serves as both - A University (Public) and Housing Tower (Private). With the increasing demand for housing and growing popularity of working from anywhere, the commute will slowly lose relevance for a lot of emerging job sectors 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?
