Attorney General Building Madrid, Spain

Garduño Arquitectos

The system’s outermost layer, the eyelids, is there to protect and moisten the eyes. These skin folds create a structural membrane that has two natures, one concerning its immediate role of protecting the rest of the organ from the sunshine and light and, secondly, as its natural support structure. This was represented in the proposal by means of a geometric pattern, resulting from the analysis of function and proportion of a clear architectural program. The building has two basements, functioning as parking lot, vehicle entrance facility and vertical communication nuclei, taking people to their workspaces. The building’s external skin is made of layers that may be seen from the façade, acting as structural support and solar control. This generates and external element that frames the landscape protects the inner spaces from the sunlight, supports the building and rounds up this sustainable project with a conceptual presence.

Business Center Miramare Zagreb, Croatia

The competition program is placed on a crossing of two streets, Miramarska and Bednjanska. It is a point of colliding two urban city concepts: north part with classical city blocks of the Zagreb’s lower city enclosed by the railway and the south part primarily along the Vukovarska Street, outlined with modernistic dominant character of mostly public and social buildings. Concept of awarded project stems from forming a unified structure that will reconcile the surrounding urban matrix and meet the program requirements. Two interacting volumes, a tower with 20 floors and a lower building with 5 floors, unite the planned goals and achieve high quality relations with the neighbouring buildings. A semi-open atrium between the two buildings connects them with the surrounding public pedestrian surfaces. The underground floors are reserved for garage spaces, ground floor for shops, bars and restaurants. There are 20000 square meters of office space, and a unique viewpoint at the top of the tower.

How can a building devoted to the automobile industry express mobility, be environment friendly, fit into the various contexts and needs? Mobility: The “dynamic system” designed on the ground marks the drivers or workers’ influx. The façade speeds up as the continuous and curving horizontal lines flow in the distance. In the exhibition hall, the “car parade” dramatizes the automobiles in a kinetic way. Environment: Some sunshades cover the building and the roof can spread out in order to control the solar energy. Some Canadian shafts, taking its fresh air from the totem, moderate the air. The photovoltaic system included in the glass roof creates power. GlobaLocal: A charter (Global) offers a broad range of combination. At the centre, a free space fits into the local needs: It is dedicated to the cultural events, the exhibition of Citroën toys, the commercial shows...

Mรถrby centrum is a commercial centre outside Stockholm established in the 1960's. After years of unplanned adding and reconstructing it is now in desperate need of a strong identity and a general facelift. In the scale of the city and the surrounding infrastructure a superimposed grid layer connects the present incoherent parts of Mรถrby centrum to a whole. Simultaneously different treatments of each square in the grid gives the centre a human scale and an aesthetic variation. The squares can be filled with a wide range of different materials; mirror glass, vegetation walls, transparent glass, solar collectors, fiber cement boards etc. A new high rise building containing offices and commercial spaces presents a strong symbol for the centre. The building is clad with the same gridsystem as embosoms the rest of the centre.

High Court of Justice and Supreme Court, City of Justice Madrid, Spain

Foster + Partners

The Appeals Court is a six-storey drum-shaped building with an undulating faรงade. It is penetrated by a full-height atrium at its center, which repeats the swelling contours of the building, and is capped by a glazed roof. Its wide, welcoming entrance is guarded by a discreet security filter. At ground level, a large, decorative pool resonates with the use of water in vernacular Spanish architecture. It generates an animated visual experience as daylight is reflected, while it also cools and humidifies the environment. The first two levels accommodate 33 courtrooms, clustered in groups of two or three and accessed via bridges. The grouping relates to the division of courts into criminal, civil and mercantile, therefore rationalizing the circulation within the building. The upper levels are raised above these court rooms, providing offices at the perimeter of the building with meeting rooms encircling the atrium.

Gardu単o Arquitectos

This new open design competition seeks innovative and exciting design proposals for phase two of the Walsall Waterfront redevelopment.Architecture is generated in an intangible fashion, immediately and ethereally, rejecting from the start the intervention of formal design, and transforming the outcome into geographical forms with geological features, blending immediately and naturally into the site. This is a proposal where chance meets nature, becoming lively parties in the design team. The outcome includes three hybrid buildings, brought together by courts and ramps in different levels, where applications share the space generating interactions by means of green areas, turning the whole space into a multi-purpose court. Sculpting as it goes the timelines embedded in the rock, which contains and shapes them: natural irony transforming invisible light into multicolored haze. It flows and gathers, allowing visitors and dwellers alike to flow with it.

New Headquarters for Spiegel Hamburg, Germany

HENNING LARSEN ARCHITECTS

The project comprises two U-shaped buildings. Their movement and vibrant appearance is an interplay in-spired by sailing ships, the white paper and light. The buildings create two plazas. An arrival plaza towards Brooktorkai and a plaza for staying at in connection with the wharf promenade. Natural ventilation make it unnecessary most of the year to heat or cool down the rooms. One solar cell facility on the roof covers most of the power need. Together with a number of other environmental initiatives this is the basis for the jury panel’s emphasis of the project’s sustainable character. The building will be complete as soon as in 2010 where also Hamburg’s new concert hall, designed by Herzog & de Meuron, will be complete at the other end of Hafen City.

This administrative center project, which groups various public services, reflects the changes that have taken place in Saint-Etienne. The site is near the main train station, in an area undergoing redevelopment that will bring high density in land use. To prepare the way for things to come, the Manuelle Gautrand office sought to create a continuous set of volumes developing one after the other: hugging the ground here, rising up there, and animating the site in large portals and overhangs. Continuity in the volume pattern enables excellent flexibility: depending on their needs, tenants will be able to extend or reduce the floor-space they occupy. The ‘Aztec serpent’ look of the set expresses vertical and horizontal movement: top to bottom and vice versa, touching the ground and yet opening large access and exit ways. The three gigantic entrance portals are set in a staggered layout, opening sight-lines and pedestrian passages on all sides.

The design plays with the contrast of the building’s two main facades. The northern facade, on the plaza, is a large, light, transparent glass front that functions as a rigorous backdrop for the pedestrian area and the new Gardens of Porta Nuova. The southern facade, at the edge of the area bordered by Via Don Luigi Sturzo, with a curved profile, is enclosed by a sunscreen system; the blades mounted on the facade vertically pace the front, regulating internal luminosity. The continuity of the elevation, of about 140 meters, is enlivened by a system of internal courts with colored windows, which penetrate different levels of the building, bringing light to the various levels. The overhang of the roof closes the glass volume and clearly defines the silhouette of the building, making it simultaneously linear, clean and unique.

The symbolism has been drawn from the world of dance in the lines of the two 70-meter tall towers to be built in connection with Holstebro Town Hall. The development, which encompasses a split tower block of up to 20 stories and 70 meters in height, will provide room for approximately 9,000 m² of offices and apartments, of which Holstebro Municipality will use approximately 2,500 m² as an extension of the town hall. The complex is aimed to become a new landmark of the city. It also provides the opportunity to draw together public service functions in one central location, and further provide spaces for added uses such as a health clinic, offices and new quality housing units.

i | Sky gardens, interior view p | Interior view

The first step consisted in defining a visual and constructive frame for the building. This frame would determine not only the exterior facade of the hotel but the physical limits of built-up areas. The response to such a simple formal approach was to create a complex dialogue between each separate architectural or landscaping element. An urban and vertical garden has been the response to the massive hotel building, as an inverse piece, a friendly opposite that complements and allows the dark prism of the hotel to breathe. The skin respects the plant-like structure and plays with it. It is cut along the branches of the structure and passes before and behind it, a movement generated by the programmatic organization. In this manner, the structure disappears, allowing the fenestration patterns of the curtain wall to be seen in the tourist section of the hotel, only to reappear and reaffirm itself as structure in the area corresponding to the immense executive hotel atrium.

Wilson Town City Center Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina

Milieu Architects

Wilson City Center is a major new development in the wider center of Sarajevo, offering spacious river view offices, contemporary retail facilities, entertainment in a lively and accessible area. It is important that this major new development should contain a rich and varied mix of uses. Successful “towns” thrive on diversity, rather than a single use that is deserted in the evening. In this way it becomes a desirable place to live, shop, meet, stay, relax and work. It will be the benchmark for future urban regeneration of Sarajevo. Piazza now generally refers to a paved open pedestrian space, without grass or planting, often in front of a significant building or shops. Proposed Piazza would act as a social heart offering lively town-square-like environment. Weekend shopping masses will replace weekday business buzz. The proposal incorporates provision for a future improvement of river walk path.

Zuidkas

Amsterdam, the Netherlands Architectenbureau Paul de Ruiter bv

Four factors are of importance in such a model: energy efficiency, recyclability, durability and human activities under the influence of the building. The concept of the Zuidkas flows logically from these sustainability aspects. Thinking from the viewpoint of CO2 reduction, energy efficiency and health, an unusual mixture of functions in a building has developed: living, working, school, parking, retail, restaurants, a park and a biogas power plant. All this is linked by a glass construction envelope that encompasses various kinds of “greenhouses�: CO2 greenhouses, hybrid greenhouses, a buffer zone and atriums. The objective is to make an intelligent autarkic building where energy and CO2 flows can be interchanged and waste flows can be converted into heat and energy, and also to minimize the total discharge from the building, reduce the energy demand to a minimum, and above all to create an attractive, pleasant and healthy living environment for people.

Beijing Wanhao Century Center Beijing, China

Moore Ruble Yudell John Ruble, James Mary O'Connor, Halil Dolan

With its very auspicious location in the city, Wanhao Century Center can become a fulcrum, a turning point between the past and future, between the grand scale of the Capitol City and the unique diplomatic districts on either side of the site, setting an important example for new development in Beijing. The project creates a clear distinction between the verticality of the office towers and the horizontal proportions of the hotel. On the hotel horizontal bay windows and a strong division of base, middle, and top floors help to express the different parts of the complex program, and keep the horizontal texture of the facades. The office towers are boldly formed with a base shaft of stone and glass bands, from which large vertical volumes of metal frame and glass are suspended and appear to move up towards the sky. Both the buildings and the landscape play straight-line geometries against soft curves.

Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates Laboratory for Visionary Architecture

Learning from nature and advanced computing enables the designers to conceive structures of incredible lightness, efficiency and elegance. The intelligence of the smallest unit results in the intelligence of the overall system. By parametric modelling of a behavioural logic the system is constantly optimized. The whole is greater than the sum of its parts. New materials and technologies enable adaptability, responsiveness, environmental awareness and strength. The traditional curtain wall facade is passive, lacking the power to adjust to the fluctuating external environment. It should be able to intervene actively in the buildings struggle to maintain its internal stability.

Corniche Tower

Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates Laboratory for Visionary Architecture

The Corniche Tower concept is based on the pure qualities of a cut diamond. The bounce of light, crisp geometry and formal elegance all play important parts in defining the Corniche Tower. The Building is organized by ‘Stacked’ packages’ of eight floors in height that fold diagonally on every side. An overlay of diagonally continued patterns is superimposed to generate a spiraling dynamic towards the sky. Many different possibilities were researched to tile the façade surface. The lobby areas have white shiny marble floors and include the main entrance on ground floor and all elevator lobbies that are underground through to the lobbies on each tower floor. In the elevator lobbies, the ceiling is backlit; doors and walls are covered with reflective stainless steel or chrome and the elevator cabins are clad on two sides with a warm tactile material (Alcantara). The ceiling is light while the floor surfaces are finished with marble. The car park entry frames the main entrances to the building that are treated like a public space within the city. All walls and columns are painted in a reflective white and the driveway is accentuated by a dark materiality that separates public space from vehicular access.

To create this illusion of two towers bending and folding in a dance, an innovative structural system was developed to allow floors to extend beyond the core support with a framework of diagonal braces tying together sections of cantilevered floors. Each guestroom or residential floor plate is shifted slightly in relationship to a stable vertical core that accommodates utilities. The towers’ veil-like folded sheets of glass and fretted glass accents that cover the front façades provide guests a dramatic view of the Arabian Gulf to the east while welcoming natural daylight inside. The 60-plus-storey towers rise from a four-story podium with a signature Fentress entrance: a celebratory, light-infused, multi-story glass atrium.

Efizia Tower Mexico city, MĂŠxico.

Juan Carlos Baumgartner

The tower has a dual facade; the first is a double glazed glass facade and the second comprises a stainless steel mesh, allowing natural light in while absorbing the heat. This ensures the building remains cooler and places less stress on the air-conditioning systems. The tower has a green roof of local vegetation. This will reduce the building’s visual impact from the sky and re-introduce plants that were native to the habitat. The project incorporates rain water collection technologies, allowing the collected water to be used in toilets and reducing mains water consumption. More than 10% of the raw materials used in the construction are local to the region. Only materials low in volatile organic compounds (VOCs) will be used in the interiors. Many VOCs can be found in paint, carpet backing, plastics and wood preservatives.

Fake Hills Beihai, China

MAD

Fake Hills is a building which will offer residential, office and hotel facilities. The 430,000 sqm project by MAD architects is currently under construction. It is located on a waterfront site in Beihai, China. The design concept combines the two typologies that usually define residential developments (high rise towers or long, low rise blocks) to create a bold new structure in the form of a long slab. This shape can maximize the views of residents, but can also easily appear to be a monolithic break between the waterfront and the land behind it. The solution is twofold: to cut into the slab, creating a sculpted form which references the shape of the hills that dominate the region’s landscape, and to cut openings through the structure, to further allow space, views and light to penetrate it.

The project does not propose to replace one icon with another, but to establish a new type of attractor, based on the proliferation of experience.The integral continuity of the design intends to bring the liveliness of the city to the waterfront. The piazza consists of four different program clusters that are integrated with the logistics of the terminal program, with the open landscape of the piazza and with underground parking functions. The three clusters are programmed so as to achieve a sense of spatial continuity with the aid of sightlines. Cuts in the peripheral buildings allow views to the water and to the old city from the central piazza. This central piazza is laid out on a continuous, horizontal plane, whereas the roofscape is laid out like a park with beaches, sports fields and other public places situated at different height levels. The piazza with its clusters also aims for a timebased continuity by careful complementary programming.

In order to best preserve the principle of “community, human-scale and intimacy”, the project is subdivided into three distinct neighborhoods: Sea Colony West, Sea Colony East and Central Village. Sea Colony West is a resort apartment community of terraces, plazas and dramatic ocean views towards Haeundae Beach. Sea Colony East is a resort apartment community directly adjacent to Haeundae New Town comprised of terraces, plazas and dramatic ocean views of Song Jong Bay. Central Village will become a new paradigm in community development as it fosters a more human-scale environment that subscribes to a true “live/work/play” model for its residents and surrounding community.

Skytower

Amsterdam, the Netherlands

SeARCH

A tower was asked to be designed as a stubborn charisma and identity; international, urban, trendy and stunning. The designers think that within the strip a square tower is the most appropriate volume, better than a round tower or a tower with a free form. The position is insufficiently solitary and the tower is insufficiently distinctive in height in relation to the surrounding high-rise buildings. The double -skin of the tower ensures sufficient abstraction and works at the same time as a buffer for the actual facade in which to open windows and doors have been incorporated. Thus it is possible to develop a sustainable tower in which employees and hotel guests feel themselves comfortable, the wind load is reduced and cooling systems can be reduced to a minimum because exuberant sun accession is avoided.

Tallinn Town Hall Tallinn, Estonia

BIG-Jakob Lange

Good governance and participatory democracy is dependent on transparency in both directions. It requires adequate political overview of the problems, demands and desires of the public, as well as public insight into the political processes. The new town hall of Tallinn will provide this two way transparency in a very literal way. The various public departments form a porous canopy above the public service market place allowing both daylight and view to permeate the structure. The public servants won’t be some remote administrators taking decisions behind thick walls, but will be visible in their daily work from all over the market place via the light wells and courtyards. From outside the panoramic windows allow the citizens to see their city at work. In reverse the public servants will be able to look out and into the market place’s making sure that the city and its citizens are never out of sight or mind.

The United Office Building is a mixed-use development of 175,000 sqm whose aim is to become a landmark for the entrance to the city of Jeddah, providing richly landscaped spaces, public shopping galleries, world-class rental offices, spa facilities and restaurants. Its technical process is manifested by apparently subtle structural and architectural features (novel façade and tower design), lighting effects (night-time illumination and the world’s largest active LED facade) and state-of-the-art building intelligence (natural ventilation, facade-cleaning, recycling, etc). The giant main structural façade (100*140m) uses Arabic tessellations to create effects of differing depths, shadows and rhythms.

Tower 123 Zagreb, Croatia

3LHD

“Tower 123� business tower, located in Zagreb, Croatia, will be the tallest building in Croatia and one of the tallest buildings in the whole region. It will be built at the intersection of the Ljubljanska and Selska streets, in the southwest corner. The solution for the design has been made after identifying the shortage of quality public space on the location of the Tower and the surrounding district. The analysis revealed the coexistence of two matrices-one modern and urbane, and the other, the remaining rural architecture which has been absorbed by the city space. It was evident that both matrices lacked quality public space. The principal avenue at the entry to Zagreb has been conceived as the main business area, thus giving to the image of the city a thoroughly new appearance.

Upside Down Skyscraper New York, USA

Alessandro Mangione, Manuela Priori

The concept for this skyscraper includes a new urban vision that comes from the study of the tensions generated by the building itself but also found in the site as a “genius loci� element; the simultaneity of the interaction of the tower within the city block and the entire urban environment forced to design a skin which is not only structural but also a live element that speaks to the city. To freely circulate around the buildings the design strategy consisted on reversing the idea of a classic skyscraper with the public areas on the ground floor. An inter-connecting lobby with adjacent offices spaces is located on the top of the entire complex. Bridge gardens on different levels double functions as green areas for the residents, the hotel and the public as well as circulations.

The function of the museum is to exhibit culture in its physical expressions. This proposal aims to allow the living history of immigrants to flow into the museum in actively telling the ongoing narratives of emigration and its effects on culture and society, rather than petrifying and exhibiting artefacts of it’s unfolding. The cultural commons hosts a broad range of events and activities to work in conjunction with the periodical exhibitions in the museum. Through art, dance, markets, etc., and its intimate scale, the commons dissolve the monumentality of the museum's form through everyday use. If the traditional museum operates on principles of preservation and permanence, then the pier museum celebrates the transient nature of the borrowed artefacts and the history they embody. The exhibition space takes on a second function as temporary receptacle. As opposed to the traditional museum, all artefacts are only temporarily stored before they are assembled as formal displays.

The Agora Theater is an extremely colorful, determinedly upbeat place. The building is part of the master plan for Lelystad by Adriaan Geuze, which aims to revitalize the pragmatic, sober town center. The theater responds to the ongoing mission of reviving and recovering the post-war Dutch new towns by focusing on the archetypal function of a theater. Both inside and outside walls are faceted to reconstruct the kaleidoscopic experience of the world of the stage, where you can never be sure of what is real and what is not. Inside, the colorfulness of the outside increases in intensity; a handrail executed as a snaking pink ribbon cascades down the main staircase, winds itself all around the void at the center of the large, open foyer space on the first floor and then extends up the wall towards the roof. The main theatre is all in red. Unusually for a town of this size, the stage is very big, enabling the staging of large, international productions. The intimate dimensions of the auditorium itself are emphasized by the horse-shoe shaped balcony and by the vibrant forms and shades of the acoustic paneling.

Armed Forces Memorial Staffordshire, United Kingdom

Chris Dyson Architect

The themes of Sacrifice and Renewal should lie at the heart of the proposed memorial. These themes will be suggested by the qualities of the space. The designers think that the memorial should occupy one site as its singular vision and focus would be diminished by a multi-site occupancy. They propose 6 meters high Elliptical Mound placed at the end of Millennium Way, close to the dramatic bend in the River Tame. This location will ensure a sense of suspense, being only revealed having once entered the site. A “wall of remembrance� capable of being inscribed with names over many years by carving the stone, will also have water running down over the names to one side with a water rill at its base leading into the underground chamber down a long shallow ramp. The underground chamber is linked to the surface by light transmitting-columns which emerge into the surface world of growth and renewal. These columns will be made of stainless steel and annealed glass. A smaller passage directly opposite, similar in design of the entrance, will lead visitors up a path out of the chamber, following the flow of the water into the surrounding moat, and leading to the top of the mound.

Located at Copenhagen’s key entry point by road, sea and air, the Blue Planet will be one of the largest aquaria in Northern Europe. The intention was to set new standards for aquarium design-the project was conceived as an organic shape, inspired by a magnified water droplet. The basic plan follows a figure of eight floor plan, with a large vertical volume containing the central atrium flanked by two horizontal volumes housing respectively aquaria for cold water and tropical sea life. Accessed via the main entrance stairway, the atrium is designed as a “central square”, with direct and dramatic views out to sea. This area is the starting point from which the visitor embarks on a sequence of spatial experiences-unlike traditional aquarium design; this project offers a visitor experience that is full of stimulus and surprise.

The stadium will become well known not just for its distinctive appearance but also its dramatic new external architecture. The design of the stadium’s exterior façade will allow for the stadium to transform itself between day and night and also between non-match days and match days. The tiles are a mixture of colored polycarbonate panels and colored glass panels. These give the stadium a distinctive outer skin which will make a visual matrix of color, shade and reflections. At night the stadium will be energized by lights built into the façade to become a beacon to attract fans and respond to the excitement of the match itself. Integrated within the colored tiles of the side enclosure are special lighting elements which mean that the entire external façade can be used for animated lighting displays. The entire stadium enclosure will work as a giant screen which can project moving full-color images to the stadium surround. Such images can range from low-key ambient displays to vibrant and more detailed displays on event-nights.

The joint conceptual and design element of the handball hall and the Zamet Center are “ribbons” stretching in a north-south direction, simultaneously functioning as an architectural design element of the objects and as a zoning element which forms a public square and a link between the north and the south. One third of the hall’s volume is built into the terrain, and the building with its public and service facilities has been completely integrated into the terrain. The public space on the roof is not only a feature of the building in the business part of the center, but the roof of the hall is also used as a kind of an extension of the park situated to the north of the hall. The hall has been designed for major international sports competitions, in compliance with state-of-the-art world sports standards. The design of the hall has been conceived as a very flexible space.

To safeguard a direct sightline from the city to the characteristic “shoulder” of the Opera House a triangle is incised in the south-west corner of the library leaving a roofed outdoor space facing the water. The triangle is cut in staggered cubic indentations that invariably guide the visitor to the main entrance of the building. Only the top level occupies the full extension of the building’s footprint. The incision provides an up to 23 meters high roofed outdoor atrium with a descending amphitheatric “bowl” below. The bowl will become a pivotal meeting place, where guests of the café - sheltered from the wind-can enjoy the sun and an unambiguous view of the water and the Opera House.

“Aiki” is based on the use of universal and timeless values in architecture. Using the most durable mutual elements in Finnish and Japanese building culture a part of Finnish values has been delicately transferred to Tokyo. The “Aiki’s” outer shape is slightly reserved but holds a strong inner atmosphere. This comes from rich spatial design that leads the flow of natural light into the spaces and on the transparent surfaces in a delicate manner. The modular general design seeks not only architectonic durability but also common links between Finnish and Japanese architectural forms. Structural order, repetition and transparency are the keywords of the design. The frame of the building will be wood. Wooden beams and columns create the structural frame that will be varied by use of different surface materials and by use of different space arrangements like green court yards. The design has several places suitable for Finnish works of art.

The project, and winner of the competition, reflects the color, height and ramified form of the existing building, creating a harmonious dialogue between past and present, while at the same time utilizing a dynamic contemporary language. The building, on three levels for a total of 3200 sqm, contains 50 housing units for students. Following the principle of the existing volumes, the housing units are arranged in two continuous blocks, one facing southwest, and the other southeast. The facades are never directly opposite those of the existing buildings. Each unit has a large, partially fixed window recessed with respect to the facade, permitting the creation of a small terrace. This set-back makes sunlight a leading feature in the design of the room, providing the students with the light required for study, but carefully filtering the light to protect against excess heat in the summer.

Flowing Gardens begins from a single line-an axis extends from the Gate to the Greenhouse, travelling through the East and West Hills and over the lake, while extending into many sinuous paths, creating a network of intermingling circulation, landscape and water. The project proposes a hybrid of both natural and artificial systems. These two opposing systems are brought together in a synergy of waterscapes. Considering the amount of water needed for irrigation, the project seeks to introduce various technologies and designs found in nature, yet customized by man to suit his specific needs. Rainwater is collected and channelled into wetland areas; there, natural plants and reed beds are used to clean and store the water to be dispersed and used as irrigation water. These natural systems are integrated into the landscape as wetlands and ponds, which can also be enjoyed by the visitors as points of tranquillity and oasis.

The design first engages the public from the exterior, which expresses three elements: a large rectangular volume consisting of an obscured glass veil and a base of clear glass that envelope the second element; an interior enclosure that can be seen through both glass types; and thirdly, a vertical tower clad in zinc siding to house non-public operations. The transparency of the lower glass clearly indicates the main entry, and follows the change in elevation of the ramp system between the glass and interior wall enclosure, permitting ready views to pubic space below grade and an easily identifiable access system. At the entry, the visitor has the choice of following the ramp system against a curved, spherical wall to approach the reception hall on one end and education on the other, or being visually enticed into the lobby, and from there directed to the galleries and museum store by the organization of space and use of light.

The proposed solution is compact, comprising two blocks coated in green sedum grass, united by an airy, transparent glass atrium cutting through the building in a ziggurat pattern. The central idea of the proposal is the contrast between the inherently introverted auditoriums and the dynamic and open social and circulation zone that connects the auditoriums. The building integrates several informal spaces of various sizes to form squares and terraces for social activity and knowledge sharing. The complex has seven entrances to make it accessible from all sides of the campus with main entrances directly into the atrium on the north side and into the facade facing the plaza to the east.

The project for a Museum of Sport in Rome, designed as a rational division into three of the overall structure, works along the lines of sporting-methodological symbology. The central section is doubled height in order to emphasize the main entrance and hall; the part holding strictly exhibition spaces is located on the third and top level of the building and is designed like a multi-story space supported by exposed columns facing towards the outside through a glazed facade. The exhibition area, concentrated in the part of the building facing south, is designed like a sort of temple constructed over three levels, with a perimeter colonnade and internal cell hosting thematic exhibitions.

i | Main exhibition hall p | The three main elements: roof volume, circulation landscape and excavated exhibition spaces

The site is located on a slope and connects the park at the river with the excavation site. The idea is to extrapolate the existing landscape with a building that intensifies the landscape instead of reshaping it. The most visible and iconographic element of the museum is the roof. Its volumetric structure of sections spans over all museum areas. The roof is shaped by the lateral forces which determine the different heights of the sections. The sections itself are interconnected with a system of steel beams and cables, so the roof structure appears massive and very light at the same time. The temporary roof covers of the excavation spaces are the only visible elements of the excavation and create a light and intimate enclosure. These covers have inspired the atmosphere as well as the appearance of the museum.

Belzberg Architects

The Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust (Lamoth) is to be a world class multi-cultural museum located at the northwest corner of Los Angeles’ Pan Pacific Park, as an annex and adjacent to the existing Holocaust Monument. The nearly 50 year history of the organization began from Holocaust Survivors who possessed artifacts along with their stories that needed a place to be memorialized. Lamoth soon became the first museum of its kind in the United States. The Design Intent is to integrate the building into the park, so as not to visually impact the park atmosphere and to create a location for communities worldwide to visit, remember and move forward with intolerance. The Museum emerges from the landscape through a single hyperbolic surface. This simple move creates a distinctive façade for the museum while maintaining the natural beauty of the topography. Layered a top the Museum’s galleries, the park’s landscape and pedestrian paths seamlessly connect to create striking new views of the environment. The building will be integrated with the six stark black granite columns of the existing Holocaust Martyrs Monument, and descend from their base into two stories of exhibit areas.

The proposal meets the program established by generating a vital building that expresses the remarkable plasticity within, through the transparency of its exterior cover. The idea behind this proposal is to recover the visual connection of its environment, especially from Darregueyra St., which opens from Santa Fe Avenue to Juncal St., by means of a building with a set of transparencies that allows a view from inside to the central square and vice versa. The building has several overlapping boxes: internal red concrete with curved shapes, a glass cover and the other with metal strips to filter the entrance of light. A dynamic visual effect of its changing forms will be created with the shift of each one of these. Another independent case consists of a floating floor, walls and an acoustic ceiling.

The first is a heavy, black volume that emerges from the earth; it is enclosed by three metallic facades and completely covered with solar panels that form a patterned network. The second volume, contrasting with the first, is formed by two facades of curtain walling with an artificial grass-covered roof that starts off as an extension of the terrain and continues on to cover the entire site. Artificial grass also covers the below-ground-level connection, allowing it to merge with the site and its surroundings. The five galleries are designed to be visited sequentially. In order to serve for a wide variety of possible exhibitions and contents, the galleries have been designed with very different characteristics: from those with ceilings at a conventional height to galleries with variable-height ceilings, reaching up to 16 meters of clear height, and with or without natural light.

The idea of a shell shape comes naturally, a radial cover could protect both of the outside and inside. The light and structure are the raw material of the project. The interior skin splits and multiplies along the building to introduce natural light and to be part of the structural beams. This ribbed shell form is expressionistic and empiric, phenomenological and optimized; it follows people all around the building and attracts them look up to the altar /imposes them to watch the altar/provokes them to see the altar. The Architecture of the church should create a warm and transcendental atmosphere. Light and structure generate a simple space which awakens the existential sense of life, without any decoration, where the light in its various forms, works as the vehicle to transport people toward an encounter with God.

The existing qualities in the surroundings are enhanced with new additions. Benches are added to the walk along the river and a new ramp connects it more closely to the museum. A new paving defines the Karpos square and connects it with the museum foyer, making it part of the public room. Like rings on the water the Karpos square spreads out to define the ground treatment outside the Old Theater. Visitors enter the museum from the Karpos square. Arriving in an entrance room with double roof height they are welcomed by the tickets and information office. From here there are three ways of walking through the museum; only visiting the VRMO museum, only visiting the museum of the victims of communism or walking through both. Stairs or elevators takes the visitors to the starting point of each exhibition, from there one strolls down the slightly angled ramps through just one or both the museums. The walk is completed with a store and a cafĂŠ. The low inclination of the ramps together with the elevators makes all parts of the museum accessible for disabled persons.

The building is not an isolated and remote realm, but, on the contrary, is an exceptional space which interacts with its surroundings in a way that can transform its perception. In some areas transparency requires a specific connotation. It is not only about lightness, but it is also a matter of clearness and osmosis with the territory own essence, a matter of interaction with the visitor. The designers conceived the museum space playing with the contrast between architecture and the surroundings. The museum building, an artificial landscape, blurs with the natural surroundings. The surroundings and the over imposed synthetic landscape interweave and interact with each other; the consequence of this topographic manipulation synthesizes the two systems into a consistent, progressive and innovative identity.

The building’s architecture realizes the stratification metaphor through its circulation systems. The most expansive route is a snaking concrete ramp that leads visitors through exhibition galleries and meeting spaces for mountain guides and hikers, while offering unfettered Rocky Mountain views through floor-to-ceiling glass walls. Viewed from the side, the concrete floor slabs appear to hover precariously above the transparent walls, creating the effect of floating strata. In addition to its main ramp, the building includes two other circulation systems that explore different scales and methods of ascent. A 98-foot-tall central column doubles as a rock-climbing wall, which will be North America’s only venue for world cup rock climbing competitions. Aside from vertical climbing, the design also accommodates “Bouldering”-climbing without ropes-through an outcropping of polygonal, digitally designed rocks that process from the exterior lawn to interior space.

Seen from afar, the building seems like a monolith- a striking black volume with syncopated skin and a central shaft of light, suspending volumes on alternating sides. With the backdrop of a night sky, these volumes of activity appear suspended in space, hovering over the landscape like a musical beacon, begging the viewer to draw near. The skin’s playful perforations lend additional sparkle and mystery to its nocturnal presence. The exterior is black, pre-cast concrete panels with a flat finish-to absorb maximum heat during Calgary’s many cold months. The façade uses the sun’s energy to heat the pipes and air behind the panels. Scattered rectangular openings are glass panels flush with the precast panels to emphasize the monolithic nature of the bridge.

The design of the New Mariinsky Theater will be a contemporary expression of the existing historic urban form. The height of the fenestrated masonry base will be consistent with the existing buildings of historic St. Petersburg and will create a continuous streetscape similar to the streets of the old city. The base will be relieved by large bay windows that will provide panoramic views of the city and the adjacent historic Mariinsky Theatre, fulfilling the role of the historic colonnaded porticos. Above the base of the New Mariinsky Theatre will be a gently curved metal roof enlivened by a glass canopy. The contrast in form, material and color between the building’s base and its roof will give the building a contemporary identity rooted within the context of St. Petersburg’s exceptional architectural heritage. The New Mariinsky will be a 2000-seat opera and ballet house with six stages and six rehearsal rooms as well as an appropriate number of dressing rooms and other support facilities required for an opera house in the first rank.

The feeling of uncertainty and doubt that took over the emigrants through the beginning of their journey is demonstrated on the beginning of the museum’s path, when visitors descend to a tunnel and cross over all the extension of sand without knowledge of what really happens on the end. The museum’s path will not always be regular during the visitor’s trip. The designers search to create different exposition environments, always illuminated by a zenithal light. The final part of the museum’s visit has the same end as the emigrant’s trip to Miami-Beach – the arrival to the beach. The entire torturous, irregular, sentimental and nostalgic path that is absorbed by the visitor through the museum’s “journey” is by this point forgotten and a new feeling will prevail: the feeling of hope and future that the designer couldn’t draw…

Old Beijing is composed of Hutongs, closely woven districts of communal courtyard homes. The basic elements of these districts are one-storey buildings, forming unique geometric patterns, and repeated at dense scales. This traditional urban fabric is increasingly under threat, however, making way for the larger, monumental modern architecture of Beijing today. To solve this dilemma, MAD proposes to create a building composed of many small Hutong-scale pieces, but with a large overall volume. This will be achieved by stacking different courtyard layers on top of one another, creating an ethereal, semi-solid piece of urban fabric, a vague geometric shape, which maintains the spatial relationships and hollow core of the courtyards. This proposal extends the city fabric from small to large, stepping up between two scales, and providing a means to reconcile “two Beijing”. The building is an urban instrument, representing Beijing’s new aspirations to be a forward looking city which also respects its past.

The museum could be seen as a ship (image of our time) that would have scratched and sunk into the ground, into the time.After his entrance and during his entire visit, the visitor will have the feeling to penetrate into time and into earth, rock. His unique reference will be the sight of the sky and the rays of light. On top of the atrium the visitor can enjoy the view. The atrium looks like a hole in the earth (natural rocks walls) stated under the sky. Then, the visitor goes down following a spiral ramp created into an old basalt precipice around the atrium. The exhibition follows the ramp. The circulation is stated on the edge with natural light and vision of the sky. The exhibited objects are protected from the light under the upper level ramp – a columns forest supports floors. It is possible to display objects in open spaces or to create closed compartments. The last level is characterized by a corridor sheltered by the last opened ceiling of the building (with a view on the sky that let enter the natural light, and gets an atrium’s view from downstairs). This corridor leads also to a large cave (last exhibition room) dug into the ground. From the top of the atrium, visitors seem to disappear in the earth.

Sarajevo Concert Hall Bosnia-Herzegovina, Sarajevo

SMAQ in Berlin

The proposed concert hall for Sarajevo and a new public passage are redefined by prolonging the different parts of the city into the building, towards and around the stages. The twisting gesture produces multiple views from the foyer back into the city. Its envelope diagrams accessibility, spatial and acoustical requirements, leaves gaps for light to penetrate in and out. It is a bending structure, which perceived in motion creates alternating moments of openness and enclosure. Thus–rather than confining–the concert hall entangles music and its event. Its openness reflects an optimistic attitude towards the civic live of the struggled city. The program of two separate halls within one building is seen as a potential for public permeability. The two halls become the centre of a twirl operation that creates a public passage while establishing a topography that organizes the adjacent areas of the site. In this way the concert hall creates a condition which rather bundles the gathering event of music than housing it in an object with strict boundaries between interior and exterior, between admitted and non–admitted.

Representing and reflecting changes taking place in the values and processes of design, the spatial organization of the School of Design is based on a rethinking of the way design knowledge could disseminate in the future. The design incorporates spaces for research, contemplation and study by providing introvert and secluded conditions, whilst at the same time enabling associated companies, organizations and individuals to connect with the design community. The internal organization is based on a radial lay-out, which is arranged around two central cores that house the vertical circulation for fast access to each floor. The cores contain elevators, emergency exit stairways and service spaces. Each floor consists of two circular plates placed on split-levels around these cores. These circular floor plates are connected with stairways and sloping walkways around a central vertical void, where connecting bridges on each floor provide the “slow transportation� in the building.

Solidarnosc Europejskie Centre Gdansk, Poland

GROUP A

GROUP A has made a design proposal for the Solidarnosc Europejskie Centre and the adjacent 'Road to Freedom', in Gdansk Shipyard. The design is based on a poster by Czeslaw Bielecki. The poster shows the significance of the Solidarnosc movement throughout Polish history; the role of the movement is symbolised by a pulsating line. The 'Road to Freedom' is the actual area within the Gdansk Shipyard where the protests by Solidarnosc took place. These historical events should be embedded in the areas' future transformation. The 'Road to Freedom' has a clear direction; from constraint to freedom, from the Gdansk shipyard towards the world. GROUP A's design for the for the area consists of a group of carefully placed masts, representing a gathering of people. The viewer, led along the 'Road to Freedom', is confronted with historical impulses. The Solidarnosc Europejskie Centre is one of these impulses. The new museum symbolises the journey which led from suppression to freedom, a spatial translation of Czeslaw Bielecki's poster. The permanent exhibition can be compared to a journey through time, explaining the history of the Solidarity Movement.

The design envisages extending the museum along a central axis, in keeping with the museum’s historic spatial sequence. The new rooms for the collection are accessed via the foyer, which, along with the system of circulation, is re-designed in order to make the whole building barrier free. The rooms for special exhibitions are connected directly to the foyer and to the new exhibition spaces for the permanent collection. Administration, the Metzler Auditorium and the library are re-located to the west wing. The new space for the art of the second half of the 20th century is located in the “garden halls” beneath the Städel garden. The central room is dominated by an elegantly curved and seemingly delicate ceiling with circular roof lights. The curve in the ceiling emerges above ground as part of the new garden’s topography, like a piece of land art, and can be used as an outdoor extension to the foyer. The compact underground building form, the method of heating and cooling, the pre-warming and pre-cooling of air and the large internal storage mass together create an optimal room climate with minimal energy consumption.

Sundsvall Performing Arts Theater Sundsvall, Sweden

EMERGENT Tom Wiscombe, LCC

The shell of the building is based on topological torus geometry. It was generated by stretching a soft volume in response to environmental conditions. An architectural “desiring” of the oceanfront and riverfront generated two smooth protrusions in the volume to the north and east. These cantilevers out of the building allow unobstructed views out over the E4 roadway to the Baltic Sea. The new building is connected to the existing Kultur Maganiset via its glass atrium, which becomes the main entry for the new building. The two buildings become one complex, although they have radically different architectural sensibilities. While the existing building speaks to the cultural and architectural history of Sundvall, the new building is a distinctly contemporary expression of structure, space, and atmosphere. Other areas of the shell are pushed inward, spatially drawing the outside into the interior. These involutions interconnect on the interior of the building, creating structural “columns” in the space. They also operate as building circulation, connecting the performing arts theaters to the foyer on main and balcony levels.

Super Sustainable City GĂśteborg, Sweden

Kjellgren Kaminsky Architecture

The Super Sustainable City, designed by Swedish architecture firm Kjellgren Kaminsky Architecture, proposes a green Gothenburg for 2050. It is predicted that by 2020 the city of Gothenburg will grow with 8000 new inhabitants per year. In order to accommodate this increase careful planning of houses and facilities need to be considered. Gothenburg faces a challenge comparable in size with the industrial revolution; to become a sustainable city. The Super Sustainable City is based on the principal of creating a sustainable ecological footprint for the growing seaside city. The design includes green roofs for leisure and solar panels, passive solar design, wind turbines, a rapid transit system and cycling paths.

The project was designed for a competition called TOGS (Temporary Outdoor Gallery Space) in March of 2009, where 200 entries from all over the world were received by the organizers. The temporary architecture installation is an outdoor exhibit which provides prestigious gallery space. The flexible pavilion design of SPONGE is designed as a tunnel of wooden frames which can be pulled apart. In this way, the pavilion can change in size according to the need. When the pavilion is closed, it functions as a closed capsule which is protecting the art pieces. By pulling the frames apart, a harmonica shaped transparent PVC foil is unfolding in between; it serves as a light resource and preserves the artwork from outside conditions. In the maximal possible position, there is even enough space for presentations, a small cinema. The “outdoor stage� serves as the entrance of the pavilion, but at the same time as stage, as catwalk or as public furniture.

Theater Spijkenisse The Netherlands

UNStudio

The design for the theater ensures that the building fits with its surroundings, with the geometry and use of color reflecting the surroundings of Spijkenisse city center. The draping of the transparent faรงade over the two atria allows for only glimpses of the warm colors of the interior from the outside. Inside the foyer the visibility of the two atria increases and visitors can experience the full theatrical effect of the wall treatments. The use of color, coupled with the geometry of the foyer, creates a pivotal point in the social functioning of the theater. Vertically the foyer opens up towards a transparent roof, through which night skies can be seen. The entry is placed at the highest point on the site, with the effect that room levels are kept as even as possible, whilst also facilitating use by disabled visitors who can enter the foyer via a short ramp. The two main theater spaces are positioned to receive the visitor flow directly from the foyer and the public square. In order to separate these flows, the changing room spaces are positioned above the square, creating a separate volume which efficiently separates the flows from the public spaces.

STAR strategies + architecture

i | Foyer p | Exhibition

The architecture of the House should allow maximum flexibility and represent the dynamism of the Art and Culture in Beirut day after day. It should allow for an active and vibrant image. The programme is grouped according to its qualities. By dividing the functions into two categories according to their requirements on height and interaction, the designers obtain two volumes: a tall box and a low plinth. In the box, the designers place the programme that requires big heights and vertical circulation, while in the plinth they accommodate the programme that could enjoy a direct connection to the street. By keeping the plinth as low as possible, the designers ensure maximum urban conditions, in the surroundings and within the plinth itself.

i | Exterior view p | Interior view

The building serves two different purposes: it contains a public section open to visitors and a section for academic research intended for the permanent staff. The building is designed to separate these two functions through different areas of activity as well as different patterns of circulation. Yet in designated areas the two functions meet in a series of orchestrated vistas which enrich the experience of the visitor and reveal the work of the scientists. The visit begins in the large Entrance Plaza overlooking the botanical gardens. The building hovers over a series of terraces and provides shade for the visitors prior to entry. Inside the building, ramps lead the visitor along the different types of exhibits. Each ramp presents a different experience and is adapted to the architectural essence of the building. In this way, a visitor passes from light to darkness, from open to enclosed spaces, and from small exhibits to diorama-type exhibits.

i | View from canal p | Elevations

The architectural concept of the Museum has been informed by two key factors: the prominent location of the site and the symbolic character of the building within the City of Tianjin. The site is located on the junction of the Ziya River and South Canal, which forms a prow with the historic Monument commemorating construction of the new canal on its end. Visitors will be able to experience the Museum not only by visiting its collection, but also will be able to walk along the building on the perimeter walkway located on the roof of the building. The walkway will be directly accessible from the water’s edge boardwalk and will lead to the viewing platform located at the highest point of the Museum. Spiral geometry suggests that in Time and Space one can be at the same two-dimensional location but at the higher level in third and fourth dimension. Progress of history and experience of surrounding City of Tianjin has been symbolically combined in the proposed new Museum.

The building’s distinctive heptagonal-shape design will be a landmark in Aarhus. The library’s offices will have impressive panoramic views over the harbor with steps leading out on to the waterfront. SHL Architects’ design connects the library to the Aarhus River by creating an external recreational area that will run along the south side of the “Urban Mediaspace”. The building’s glazed façade will create light, well-ventilated interior spaces whilst also making the inside of the library visible to passersby, inviting the community inside.

Winschoten Cultural Center Winschoten, the Netherlands

Dorte Kristensen and Atelier PRO Dorte Kristensen and Lisette Plouvier

It is a versatile building located at the boundary between the old city center and the northern urban extension of Winschoten. The form of the design fully takes advantage as well as strengthens the versatility of its location. The way the façade wraps around the organic shape of its core plays with the laws of perspective, thus automatically giving the illusion of shortened distances. The Cultural Center is contemporary, subdued, refined, inspirational, bracing, artistic and, most importantly, functional. Unlike the exterior, where the design heavily incorporates the use of an earthy palette of materials, the stark contrast of the interior finishings provides a sense of lightness and airiness. The timber theater auditorium is the building's focal point around which a ring of open space serves as the connection to the rest of the building’s functions. Materials and color application are restrained so as to bring out this play of forms.

The project is to transform an existing dynamic site of the cultural and conference center into a lively and pivotal center. The stand alone building, comprised of four separate wings joined at the center, is situated on the highest point of the site, growing out of the landscape and commanding unparalleled views over the surrounding countryside. A vibrant, year round, mixed-use composition of performance spaces, museum, conference facilities and library and hospitality spaces creates a new venue where landscape and architecture can unite. The multi-function of the architecture poses an obstacle for designers. According to the shell/center principle, each of the four wings of the building contains a core at the inner part of the volume, around which the relevant functions are distributed.

The design idea is established by the Official Special Plan for the Port, following its guidelines, measurements and distribution. The main objective is to offer a clearly outlined public space that integrates and links the urban core and the Port and coastal area. The Project boosts the continuity of the promenade along the coastline and hence making the connection between the beach of Los Cristianos and the beach of Las Vistas clearer. In this public space that integrates the pedestrian flows, an open air shopping center is integrated. This shopping center offers an open and flexible commercial area, a permeable public space where people can also enjoy green areas.

Bruschi-Esposito architettos René Caro arquitectura SPRB arquitectos

The designers imagine a great ritual space around the Concepción Chapel which is symbolically dedicated to the Mexican Independence and Revolution, rectangular and long, isolated from the chaotic movement of the city by a “green wall”. The inner space, clearly delimited, will be free and smooth, almost without trees, of plain pavement; in contrast, the outer space will be shady and irregular, splashed with some landscape and architectural episodes, furrowed at various points by the access walkways to the inner space, gathering functions and multiple activities. The garden around the great enclosure will be the mattress which finally cushions the relationship between urban life’s chaos and the metaphysic character of the inside.

Vallon OuVert Dudelange, Luxembourg

GROUP A

The goal of the urban plan was to create unity and identity for Dudelange. The site, situated in a valley, holds a central position within the southern part of the city. At the same time, however, it acts as a physical barrier between a number of existing residential areas, separating them from each other and from the city center. The urban plan offers an opportunity to connect these neighborhoods with each other, and to strengthen the relationship between the site and the city center. The plan seeks to create an open, green “heart” at the center of the valley. At the edges, the valley can be used to expand the surrounding residential areas. These neighborhoods will “spill over” into the valley whilst retaining their specific morphology, thus gaining impetus as well as a stronger interrelationship.

The location for this combined assignment is a non-used site for many years, which is highly appreciated by many residents for its informal and rough space. The proposal of SeARCH tries to maintain the most important characteristic of the slumbering feeling of void, sometimes hidden, sometimes opening up to its environment, by using a concentrated multi-story buildings and a fully integrated parking solution. At the same time SeARCH also tries to find a connection with the three surrounding districts by pulling the next three patterns more or less in the location. The parking issue is solved by an artificial hill between the multi-storey apartment houses. With this hill the landscape of the whole site is characterized and amplified at once. In addition one can put short and manageable connections between the parking and the towers.

The 56 hectares site, just north of Logro単o on the two small hills of Montecorvo and la Fonsalalda, has a lot of potential to create a new neighborhood. Besides the fact that the hills provide a beautiful view over the city, the slopes are orientated to the south, thus solar energy is easily generated. A tapestry of PV-cells clad the mountain, as if the hills are covered in gold. On top of the hills, windmills are generating part of the energy needed for the 3,000 social houses and at the same time they work as icons/landmarks. The development is designed in a very compact way which minimizes the impact on the landscape. Only 10% of the site is occupied by the buildings. The remaining space becomes a magnificent eco-park, a mix of landscape and energy production.

MEtreePOLIS is a new chapter in the evolution of cities that feeds off the historical fabric of the built environment. The old forms, and traces of the past, become part of a growing organism. Through this combination the past is updated and preserved. The undifferentiated surface of the landscape enables new types of hyper efficient traffic organization. Hydrogen powered pods roll over the landscape with swarm intelligence, creating seminatural conditions that are enjoyed like river banks by the inhabitants of the city. Unlike the cars of today, pods are sized to specific needs to maximize efficiency.

New Holland Island St Petersburg, Russia

Foster + Partners

Reflecting a creative dialogue between old and new, the historic warehouses, originally built for timber storage, are reinvented as hotel and retail space and complemented by a range of amenities for the visual and pverforming arts. An office complex, which completes the missing side of the “triangle�, will establish the island as a venue for business as well as pleasure. An outdoor arena follows the contours of the dock basin to provide a venue for open-air performances, which can be flooded for regattas or frozen as a skating rink. The historic rotunda is adapted as a 400-seat recital hall for more traditional theater, opera and dance and the main performance venue-the 2,000-seat Festival Hall-forms the centrepiece. An art gallery links the three performance venues at basement level. Using a sophisticated system of natural ventilation and an energy strategy that maximizes the insulating properties of snow and the cooling potential of the surrounding canals, the island will be energy efficient and sustainable.

In Venice there is high low-tide for long periods of the year, and there are series of platforms to allow the crossing in the city, in this case. The project is based on the utilization of a catastrophic phenomenon, placing it to service of the architecture. The house is in concrete reinforced and pasted with slags of high furnace. The volume in concrete has iron elements: platforms, external window panels and various irons that become moorings in case of house total flooding. The same irons becomes strengthening of the courtyard glass windows too. The windows have been done with two glass layers with a laminated plastic layer in between however. Near to the splits the glass windows becomes small tunnel allowing the water passage in the courtyard. The house has a double garage: car-garage and bout-garage. Thus the bout, through glass elevator, can to arrive in surface utilizing it in case of total flooding.

Cessange Station Cessange, Luxembourg

Polaris Architects/ NIO Architecten

The designers had created a peripheral station-with no grudges. The station is unique in its kind, but also maintains a relaxed relationship to both the traffic network and the built environment. From an urban viewpoint the station is somehow melting into the landscape and it positions itself as complementary to the central station. The designers promoted rather a careful organization of nodes, interesting promenades and delicate separation of flows. Different types of users may cross each other, share public spaces and private programs in a continuous movement without stress or danger. Public access is possible on two levels, separating the train platforms from any other transit spaces. An internal public street crosses the peripheral constructions while offering great views to the train tracks and vice versa.

i | Southern view p | Western view

The project involves the re-utilization and metamorphosis of a large dilapidated industrial site of 60,000m2 in the heart of Athens on Piraeus Avenue, through its conversion into a cultural park centered on Greek history, mythology and landscape. The general design concept is based on an instrumental and contemporary understanding of history and myth. Furthermore, the way in which Greek history and mythology relate organically with certain landscape features and gestures have become the major principle of the design, from master plan to detail, and then elaborated into a general morphic paradigm of instrumental and educational character.

Extensive community consultations helped define important goals for the Park, primarily the need to reconnect the neighborhood with a renovated and revitalized beach front through better access and increased amenities. The Park Masterplan, developed in collaboration with landscape architects Quennell Rothschild & Partners, created opportunities for three new beach amenities that needed unique structures: a performance lawn; a boardwalk overlook at Beach 20 Street; and a new comfort station at Beach 30 Street. These architectural structures are located along primary paths that link the neighborhood to the boardwalk, with each situated to interact effectively with the landscape amenitiesincluding the reconstructed dune landscape, which will be protected in active areas, with trails located in less active areas. Inspired by the imagery of the Rockaway Beach, the designers invented an engaging vocabulary of forms reminiscent of parasols, gull wings and fabric flapping in the wind to give a strong identity to these gathering places.

The Thematic Pavilion emerges from Yeosu’s waters as a Great Blue Whale hurling itself out of the port becoming the Messenger and the Symbol of Yeosu Expo 2012-The Living Ocean and Coast. It’s Iconic and Symbolic Design holds the messages that Yeosu Expo 2012 wants to transmit to the world: “Ocenans are thee origin of life on earth, we have the responsibility to protect them.” The Great Blue Whale-Thematic Pavilion contains two large separate but interconnected volumes hosting the Theme Exhibition Area and the Best Practice Area (BPA) Exhibition respectfully. The Great Blue Whale will reveal in its interior to the Expo’s visitors, the deepest and mysterious secrets of the globe’s oceans becoming the architectural metaphor of a fairy tale that combines the biblical narrative to that of Pinocchio. The Great Blue Whale is thus in the center of the System-Expo, formed by the Expo Area, the Big “O” and the Port becoming an absolute iconic and attractive landmark. In addition, the Zoomorphic Design inspired by the marine harmonious geometries of whales perfectly complements and enriches the area of the new project called Metaphorical Archipelago.

The extraordinary location for the polyclinic is one of its greatest advantages. Placed near existing hospital complex on Firule and close to the sea gives it even more importance and value. A project of such determinate program and function requires maximal pragmatism and respect to the competition program, as well as maximum of technical and technological equipment and functionality. It was necessary to develop acquired functions vertically in order to place all the services, diagnostics, practices and laboratories as requested. All public spaces are located in basement, first and second floors, patient clinic and administration on the upper floors and garage in underground.

Located on the West bank of the river, the Porch will offer a shaded place to sit and contemplate beautiful views across the water, and will accommodate a food kiosk, restrooms, and an enclosure for a carousel. The Porch echoes the river’s twists and turns and the pedestrian flows to and across it. The trellis-like structure connects and activates the program it contains, and the surrounding spaces. It has the capacity to focus the varied means of access to and uses of the Park, becoming both destination and starting point. The coiling shape allows a fluid transition from exterior to interior space, linking the Porch's disparate functions with a unified vocabulary. Routes and spaces are defined without excluding views. The trellis resonates with the landscapes, readily accommodating planting: in time it would becomes a new habitat for the varied wildlife of the park. The material choices flow from awareness of sustainability options and will intersperse natural, locally sourced wood with vibrantly colorful pieces made using stains from natural sources, and recycled plastic lumber.

Oslo S, or Oslo Central Station, is the most important station in Norway. For reasons of sustainability there is a desire to increase the importance of railway transport in the future, thereby increasing further the strain on the capacity of the already congested junction at Oslo S. To allow for a generous space which is easy to read, existing structures not worth preserving are removed. The main floor of the station is an inclined plane sitting on top of the emerging tunnel which constitutes the main rail connection under the city. This inclined floor runs continuously from the street level up to the higher concourse traversing the tracks in the north-south direction. The functions of the program are distributed in separate volumes of one, two or three levels, much like an interior landscape of terraced islands within the volume of the main space. Pedestrian traffic meanders between the islands. Long interior views are allowed from all entrance points, offering easy orientation throughout.

Factors which affect passengers’ impressions include processing times, walking distances, ease of orientation, crowding, and availability of desired amenities. Each of these has been carefully considered in developing the concept for the passenger terminal and concourse. The terminal is open to views to the outside and planned under a single unifying roof canopy. Natural light is coming through the skin that is double skins with pattern. The skin avoids direct sunlight to reduce energy consumption and creates elegant atmosphere. It makes the air travelers have marvelous impression with comfort.

The design proposes to create a station like a theater stage-an extension of the local townscape, integrating the station with the town as if to make the whole plaza the station. The waiting room at the first floor of the new station building is designed with highly transparent material to try and prevent any visual barriers that would create a closed off atmosphere between the plaza and station. It is designed as if to provide VIP seats for the “station stage.” The “station stage” spreads from the train platforms, through the indoor waiting room and tourist information center, carrying onto the shade of the large gingko tree. Along with the waiting area for trains, buses, and cars, as well as the community center, the plaza provides space to hold events and sell local delicacies as a showcase for the local community.

Agro-Housing is the winning project in an international competition for sustainable housing in high-density urban areas in China, launched by “Living Steel” and the UIA (Union of International Architects). The idea was to blend urban and rural living by creating vertical greenhouse space within high-rise apartments. The Agro-Housing concept presents a new type of home where tenants grow their own food indoors, greatly reducing environmental impact while elevating garden spaces and fostering greener neighborhoods. The greenhouse, facing south, is the building’s prominent feature. It is a multifloor garden where could cultivate crops such as vegetables, fruits or spices on soil-less substrate. Agro-Housing suggests a new way of living by creating spaces for dwelling and agriculture in the same environment.

Under this lifted part all the lines from the surrounding come together. The building contains a mix of functions such as shops on the ground floor and dwellings of different typologies for elderly people on the upper floors. The cars for the dwellings can be parked on the roof of the shops, between the two dwelling parts. The dwellings have different typologies, measures and price categories and allow elderly people of different lifestyles to live together as neighbors or in communities.

The final goal of this project is not to build a physical structure, but rather set the means for a community to inhabit it. This project intends to bring Dallas up to date, as well as aims to forward Dallas to the world as paradigm of a solution to other cities facing the same problems. As a paradigm the designers chose the hillside, for it is one of the most diverse systems in nature. To this complex program, as well as to what is human interaction, one large single approach could never be tuned to meet all requirements. So, the space is organized as valleys, slops and hilltops, to maximize solar gain, views and productive surfaces.

The floating deck, which rises with the water level thanks to the railing installed in the core structure, leads you to the stairway. The top deck is available for the residents as well. The boat house has an amazingly audacious design with a full floating deck offering hours of sunbathing possibility.

Putrajaya Precinct 4 Waterfront Development Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Studio Nicoletti Associati + Hijjas Kasturi Associates

The park, the bridges, the lake and the view across on the up and coming developments promise an exciting building landscape for visitors and residents. At present the approved master plan has outlined the development along the waterfront at 12 stories in elevation. The proposal is to vary the building heights vary between 5 to 8 stories at the lowest rising up to 15 stories. The waterfront development needs to have “soul” that able to give life to this layer of the development. In order to bring the “soul” that will bring life to the area, public activities such as cafés, art galleries, series of international gourmet restaurants, fashion boutique to be located at ground and above ground levels. This approach takes precedents from other similar developments around the world. A mixed of office, boutique hotels, apartments will also bring in masses for the creation of a lively and vibrant environment. The waterfront development retains it connectivity with the development along the boulevard. Transparent and light layered buildings along the waterfront will create a sense of place that is uniquely tropical and reinforces Putrajaya has the garden city.

Residential Skyscraper in New York City New York, USA

bluarch architecture + interiors

This residential tower is a hybrid. It offers pods for transient residential units and/or produces energy when/where these units are not present. Three super-columns act as cores and as structural system. Pods are piled on and around each super-column and host residential units, or wind mills, or solar panels. Every 5-to-7 stories larger, green pods span all three super-columns to brace them in a truss-like system. Nine large-size wind mills top the tower and blur in the wind‌ This model of inhabitation finds scale significance if repeated and scattered in a fractal distribution in urban settings across the globe. The residential units would move from tower to tower, along with its inhabitants in a highly entropic narrative. As it produces energy, this building is energy self-reliant and a contributing node to the electric grid.
