My name is Derek Pirozzi and I just won the 2013 Evolo International Skyscraper Competition. I have contacted Evolo and asked them to include you in there press release so you should be hearing from them soon. If needed I will supply you with High Res images. Here is the story as well as relative media press. Please let me know.
In 2013, the Jury, formed by leaders of the architecture and design fields selected 3 winners and 24 honorable mentions. eVolo Magazine received 625 projects from all continents and 83 different countries. The winners were selected for their creativity, ingenuity, and understanding of dynamic and adaptive vertical communities.
The first place was awarded to Derek Pirozzi from the United States, for his project “Polar Umbrella”. The proposal is a buoyant skyscraper that rebuilds the arctic ice caps by reducing the surface’s heat gain and freezing ocean water. In addition, the super-structure is equipped with a desalinization plant and solar powered research facilities and eco-tourist attractions.
I graduated from the USF School of Architecture in Tampa FL last May 2012 and am currently working at Olson Kundig Architects (2009 AIA National Firm of the Year) in Seattle WA.
