First prize for High-rise Innovation Award!
The research proposal 'Thuis op hoogte' by BURA urbanism and CIVIC Architects won the first prize for High-rise Innovation Award! Stichting Hoogbouw announced the winner during the digital New Year's meeting on 25 January. In this design research we set out to study how diverse, inclusive and resilient communities can be created in high-rise buildings, not only at the scale of the building, but also at the scale of the so-called high-rise neighborhood. We aspire to create a model for an accessible, affordable and loved high-rise tower, where various social groups can find a place to live and which can create positive spin-off effects for the neighborhood it is located in. One of the challenges here is to come up with innovative forms of ownership and financial models within the high-rise building, which will make a desired mix of functions and social groups possible. BURA urbanism and Civic - Public Architecture will collaborate on this research, supported by sociologist Lia Karsten and economist Theo Stauttener. In this way, the design principles will be inspired by and linked to innovative economic strategies and social insights.
