The program challenges participants to design a NEW Urban Arcology Skyscraper in Hong Kong Island, Hong Kong, China. The design should create a new iconic Arcology skyscraper in the city. The overall goal of this arcology is to offer an efficient alternative to the waste and hyper consumption of current lifestyles and introduce a more energy efficient, environmental friendly and intelligent city design. The Arcology would have to distinguished itself from a merely large building in that it is supposed to sustainably supply all or most of the resources for a comfortable life: power, climate control, some food production, air and water purification, sewage treatment, etc.
