Participants in the international SKYHIVE Skyscraper Challenge had the freedom to design their most innovative high-rise on a 130x80m site. Launched by Bee Breeders and Manipal Executive Education to challenge architects to rethink the 21st-century skyscraper, the competition attracted submissions that covered issues on globalization, design adaptability, digital trends, and sustainability.
In the end, the jury selected three prize winners, a student winner, and a green award winner. Six honorable mentions were also selected. All the winning entries will be exhibited at the Manipal University Dubai School of Design & Architecture during their annual Global Tall Building Studio workshop.
