What will the skyscrapers of the future look like? Will they be covered in gardens, shaped like rocket ships, submerged in the ocean?

Since it was established in 2006, the annual eVolo Skyscraper Competition has drawn more than 4,000 proposals from architects, engineers, students and artists in 168 countries. The new book “eVolo Skyscrapers” compiles 300 of these plans, divided into categories like technological advances, ecological urbanism and social solutions.

Here is a look at some proposals for the next generation of big buildings.
