This is amazing! Guess who won and an international contest for a project of a new skyscraper in downtown Manhattan? Marian Lucky from Slovakia! Considering that he was competing with other students from 19 countries and 45 universities, I think that is a pretty BIG victory, don’t you?
Here is a brief description of the competition itself:
The objective of the competition is to integrate a creative approach to the concept of energy-efficient construction at the passive-house level. Therefore, the task is to design or renovate a building according to the ISOVER Multi-Comfort House definition, which means that high thermal performance, acoustic comfort classes and fire protection requirements have to be considered.
In case you are interested in details, you can go here to see Marian’s complete presentation. It’s pretty neat!
By the way, not only did he win but he only had to travel to the Czech Republic to claim his victory, since this year’s contest took place in the beautiful city of Prague.
