For the 2009 edition, eVolo invited architects, engineers, and designers to explore new ideas and concepts for vertical density. The competition called for innovative designs that take into consideration the historical and social context, the existing urban fabric, the human scale, and the environment.

The organizers received 416 projects from 64 different countries. The best 40 projects of the competition will be published in eVolo Magazine.

During the summer of 2009, there will be an exhibition with the best projects of the 2006, 2007, 2008, and 2009 Skyscraper Competition in New York City.

This "idea" contest has become a render contest!

Just the same generic rendering crap. What kind of spaces would most of these buildings create? Oh they look "cool" from the outside but as far as I was aware architecture was about more than making pretty objects that have no real spatial quality. Disappointing

Wonderful interplay of imaginative incoherence.... A cacophony of useless mass tied together almost but not quite.....Masterfully performed in electronic media..... indifferent to real-time needs. what we really need is a sharp incision into the real world, real time environment that will address present desperate global emergencies and not to only fulfill and cater to the aesthetic appeal.....more is required.....we are not only in the threshold of disastrous consequences of our radical and unfortunate carelessness, we are already sinking fast and each second is an eerie death Knell for all.... I would like to see more of designs which inclulcates fossil energy indepencence and greener approaches to most construction material usage....

That`s the whole point of the competition bring out form more than anything because of the lack of incoherent skyscrapers being built today, and for that reason is the contest, Yes its TOO much media and rendering crap agree with you but it has to start somewhere the imaginative and place of thinking, And For space completely agree with you this project should be required space deligation ,but the thing is the contest is about interpreting different themes and to do so with the most creativity possible
