TITLE: 
Elevator Annual 2014: "A Unique Vertical Experience

PROJECT:
The program challenges participants to design or present an Elevator concept that takes into account today’s need for a unique vertical transportation experience with the added expectation of spectacular views during the ascend to higher floors or planes.

The competition is an investigation, analysis and exploration of the unique public and sometimes private elevator space and the importance to the dynamic vertical community it creates and also capable of regulating through its movement in space and time and possibilities of a unique vertical experience during that transition or journey.

The new proposed elevator design should in general maximise positive impact of such a vertical vehicle and be an acceptable addition to today’s skyscraper (or that of the future) or solve a particular transportation problem; for example a community being able to move vertically easily or gain access to certain facilities / amenities more efficiently.


It should respond directly to the issue or need for more possibilities for such a space, whilst where possible addressing the problem facing architects of height to which a single elevator could operate and the social, environmental, energy, cultural and economic issues.
