Though the skyscraper has been with us for a century, we are yet to discover how to deploy it as an effective building block for contemporary urbanism. Planning, zoning and urban design have not provided the tools to accommodate and regulate the great inter-dependency of towers in the city, the impact on light and view on each other and their surroundings. The challenge going forward is to recognize that towers are highly interdependent and require new planning tools to resolve their relationship. Moreover, their impact, as they collide with the ground, with or without podiums, is enormous. Only powerful concepts for how earth meets tower can begin to bring about an urbanism in which the public realm is continuous, truly public, and possesses the appropriate environmental conditions. Safdie Architects announces a call for submissions for the 2015 Research Fellowship Program. Please visit our Fellowships or Employment pages for more information.
