Entry for the 2008 Evolo Skyscraper Competition
Volutes is a design proposal for a skyscraper located in Singapore's Marina Downtown. The key concept is to draw a part of the city’s fabric into the tower. The central core contains a spiraling belt of parks, shops and communal spaces that extend from the street. Six twisting sub-towers surround the core; each has 7 to 12 story clusters of apartments distributed through it. Sky bridges link these private residential neighborhoods to the public spaces at rhythmic intervals. The skyscraper opens up at its base to invite people to wander through it.
Volutes was featured in Evolo #2 and published in the book Evolo Skyscrapers.
