eVolo Magazine has announced the winners of the 2015 Skyscraper Competition, which asked entrants to "challenge the way we understand vertical architecture and its relationship with the natural and built environments."

The jury* selected 3 winners and 15 honorable mentions from the 480 projects submitted. Winners were selected, according to eVolo, "for their creativity, ingenuity, and understanding of dynamic and adaptive vertical communities."

First Place: "Essence Skyscraper"

First place was awarded to BOMP (Ewa Odyjas, Agnieszka Morga, Konrad Basan, and Jakub Pudo) from Poland for their project Essence Skyscraper: "The proposal is an urban mega-structure that contains diverse natural habitats. The skyscraper would serve as a place to briefly escape urban life  and stimulate diverse and complex experiences."
