Neo-Tax 3-D City Grid by Studio DMTW for the eVolo 2011 Skyscraper Competition

German Marc Anton Dahmen, Rene Lierschaft, and Anna-Maria Wiedekind of Studio DMTW explore concepts of communications, sociality and interaction. Their proposal for the eVolo 2011 Skyscraper Competition consists of a three-dimensional infrastructure network organized in a horizontal and vertical street grid.

This strategy provides not only a short connection paths and higher urban density with better local communications, but also an interaction between neighbors. Each module can be viewed as a separate quarter or neighborhood. This modular system can be expanded by adding new infrastructure modules with plug-in residences which particularity is to be less dependent on specific terrain conditions.

Neo-Tax avoids negative impacts that skyscrapers generate such as wasted area, interference with surface-related bio-ecological processes, long connection paths and dead ends.
The hyper-rectangle allows for an occupation of the building site on X, Y and Z coordinates.

Studio DMTW receives the Honorable Mention for this networked high-rise building.
