eVolo’s 2016 Skyscraper Competition has announced this year’s winners and awarded Yitan Sun & Jianshi Wu with 1st place for their project New York Horizon: a continuous horizontal skyscraper around the full perimeter of a sunken Central Park.

The project proposes to reshape Central Park to make it available to more people by digging down, revealing the bedrock that was hidden underneath, all the while creating a striking contrast between the cityscape and the highly reflective glass on all side of the site creating an illusion of infinity.

For more architectural genius, take a look at the 2nd and 3rd winning projects.
