The SKYHIVE 2021 Skyscraper Challenge is the fourth annual architecture competition which searches out the latest and greatest designs for an iconic high rise structure. Participants of the SKYHIVE Challenge are tasked with creating a concept for a state-of-the-art tower that breaks from the norm.

Participants are encouraged to incorporate new technologies and materials in their designs, as well as unique aesthetics and spatial organisations. Special consideration is also given to designs that implement innovations in sustainable systems, as well as those that look to solve economic, social, and cultural problems through the establishment of new architectural methods.

There is no defined competition site, therefore participants are able to select any hypothetical site measuring 130m x 80m which can be accessed by roads on two sides. Design can be set in the city of their choice anywhere in the world, given that the project is in keeping with the region’s skyline and surroundings.



The Top 10 Most Impactful Skylines

The annual SKYHIVE Challenge is a platform to examine the relationship between skyscrapers and the natural world, the community, and the rest of the city as a whole. It is important that designs show consideration for the impact on the surrounding environment, as well as how the increase in inhabitants will affect the current infrastructure, pollution levels, economic division, and urban sprawl.

As an open ideas competition, participants in the SKYHIVE2021 – The Annual Bee Breeders Skyscraper Challenge are allowed to interpret the competition brief however they choose, in the most creative way possible. The SKYHIVE Challenge is a chance for architecture enthusiasts to potentially rewrite the definition of the modern-day skyscraper.
