Metals in Construction 2023 Design Challenge
Metals in Construction magazine, New York
Redevelopment for Residential Use
The cultural change in office use brought on by the pandemic amidst a widespread housing shortage suggests redevelopment opportunities that can be explored through the lens of a speculative design competition. This is the theme of the Metals in Construction magazine 2023 Design Challenge, which awards a $15,000 grand prize to the most innovative design concept illustrating the feasibility of redeveloping an office tower for residential use.
The Metals in Construction magazine 2023 Design Challenge seeks to explore these questions by generating ideas for the innovative redevelopment of a steel-and-glass office tower to create desirable residential occupancy. It invites students and practitioners to enter their vision for an efficient, imaginative layout and technical solution that adapts an existing 48-story New York City office tower into residential units that can be rented or sold at market rate.
