Several years ago a Jelmer Frank and I developed the On Demand Experience. This skyscraper was our entry for the 2011 eVolo Skyscraper Competition. Every year, architecture journal eVolo runs this international competition. Hundreds of architects and designers participate every year. Out of 715 entries, our entry was awarded an Honorable Mention.
Recently co-participator and friend Jelmer Frank discovered an article on UK technology website TechWorld.com. It’s an article written five years after the On Demand Experience. The article mentions six of the “best futuristic skyscraper concepts”. TechWorld writes:
Architects from around the world participate, and contributions have ranged from an apartment building with an integrated robotic warehouse for on-demand goods to a sprawling eco-friendly data centre highrise in Iceland.
Yep, we’re the “apartment building with integrated robotic warehouse” TechWorld talks about. Five years after we competed in eVolo, people still remember our entry. Amazing! TechWorld continues the article by highlighting six concepts, including the On Demand Experience. Read the full article here.
