Call for registrations to Hybrid Futures 2019 – Work x Fly competition

Hybrid Futures has announced new competition titled "Hybrid Futures 2019 – Work x Fly" competition. 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 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 an open ideas competition that explores such programmatic ramifications in a much futuristic timeline and high-density scenarios. 

Challenge

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 problem: How will your idea of a tall building that houses these two evident typologies of today give birth to a more hybrid future?
