ARCHITECTURE

AT

IS UBIQUITOUS, SURROUNDING US EVERY DAY AND WHEREVER WE GO. NOT MERELY THE CRAFT OR CREATION OF OBJECTS, IT SHOULD BE PERCEIVED AS AN EXPERIENCE IN WHICH PEOPLE - INHABITANTS, PASSERS-BY, ONLOOKERS, ARE INVITED TO ENGAGED WITH AND EVEN CONTRIBUTE TO. THIS IS MORE OFTEN THAN NOT A SUBCONSCIOUS ACT. WE ARE ALL ENGAGED WITH THE CONSTANT CREATION, RECREATION AND MEANING-GIVING OF OUR ENVIRONMENTS. AS HUMAN BEINGS WEEXIST IN A CONSTANT PROCESS OF REORGANISING AND DEFINING OUR ENVIRONMENTS TO RENDER IT MORE EFFICIENT AND IN TUNE TO THE KINDS OF LIFE-STYLES WE CHOOSE TO HAVE. THIS RE-ORGANISING, RE-DESIGNING, AND RE-INVENTING OF BETTER AND MORE EFFICIENT TECHNOLOGIES OF LIVING, IS MULTI-DISCIPLINARY. IT TOUCHES ON ASPECTS OF SOCIOLOGY , PHYLOSOPHY, ANTHROPOLOGY, SCIENCE, CULTURE, ART, HISTORY, POLITICS, URBAN DEVELOPMENT STUDIES AND SO ON. ALL OF THESE ASPECTS AND DISCIPLINES MUST BE INCORPORATED INTO ARCHITECTURE, MAKING ARCHITECTURE ALL ECOMPASSING. THE CREATION OF MATERIAL OBJECTS IS, INEXTRICABLY, THUS ALSO AN ACT OF MEANING MAKING. THE OBJECT ITSELF IS NEVER SIMPLY AN INANIMATE THING, BUT ALSO ALWAYS SOMETHING THAT - IN ITS USE REFLECTS THE WORLD AROUND IT, PARTICULARLY THE NEEDS AND ACHIEVEMENTS OF HUMANITY. OBJECTS REFLECT THE PROCESS OF CREATION THAT LEADS TO THEIR EXISTENCE, THROUGH MATERIAL, FORM OR ITS USE. THE FORM OF A BUILDING IS CREATED FROM THE MATERIAL AND THE IMMATERIAL - POSITIVE AND NEGATIVE SPACE - WHICH ARE BOTH EQUALLY NECESSARY FOR DEFINING THE STRUCTURE. THE MATERIAL QUALITY OF AN ARCHITECTURAL SPACE IS A COMPLEX ASPECT OF THE CREATION THAT IS NOT ONLY CHOSEN IN RELATION TO THE ENVIRONMENT IN WHICH THE BUILDING IS CONSTRUCTED, BUT ALSO TO BRING THE APPROPRIATE TEXTURAL BALANCE AND INTERPLAY TO BOTH THE IMMATERIAL SPACE AS WELL AS THE FORM OF THE ENTITY ITSELF. AS THE GLUE BETWEEN THE FORM, THE IMMATERIAL AND THE CONTEXT OF PLACE - THE MATERIAL BECOMES AN INEXTRICABLE AND IMPERATIVE ASPECT TO BRING FORWARD THE GOAL OF THE DESIGN. THE PROCESS OF DESIGNING AND THE THOUGHTPROCESS THAT IS REQUIRED IN CHOOSING THE CORE ELEMENT, THAT IS THE BUILDING’S MATERIAL, ALSO REVEALS ELEMENTS OF VALUE AND VIRTUE RELEVANT TO SOCIETY. UNDERSTANDING THE MEANING OF THE MATERIAL IN RELATION TO THE DESIGN, AND TO THE ERA/SOCIAL CONTEXT, IS ESSENTIAL TO THE PROCESS OF CREATING. ARCHITECTURE OF A PLACE REVEALS THE STORY OF OUR EXISTENCE. IN AS MUCH, ARCHITECTS BECOME STORYTELLERS WHO SHAPE MEANING FROM THE MATERIAL AND THE IMMATERIAL, THE REAL AND THE IMAGINED. GOOD ARCHITECTURE WILL ALWAYS REVEAL A STORY ABOUT OURSELVES AND HOW WE SEE OURSELVES IN THE WORLD AS WELL AS WHAT WE VALUE IN SOCIETY AND HOW WE WISH TO LIVE TOGETHER. THIS DOES NOT MEAN THAT BUILDINGS MUST TELL STORIES OR THAT DESIGN TELLS STORIES - THESE ARE THE TECHNICAL ASPECTS THAT BRING FORTH STRONG STRUCTURES FOR HUMAN USE. ARCHITECTURE IS MORE THAT A PRODUCT, IT IS A DISCIPLINE, A PERSPECTIVE AND A PHILOSOPHY. ARCHITECTURE IS ABOUT HOW TIME AND MATERIALS EXIST TOGETHER AS WELL AS HOW THIS RELATIONSHIP DEVELOPS AND MATURES IN THE FUTURE. IN COMBINATION WITH THE NOTION OF TIME, THE MATERIAL BUILDINGS CAN BE CONSIDERED ARCHITECTURE.

THE ONSET OF ONE’S ARCHITECTURAL STUDIES, ONE LEARNS TO UNDERSTAND THE ABSTRACT CONCEPT OF SPACE. THIS SPACE/SPACIALITY IS INSPIRED FROM EMPTINESS, ONE WHICH INITIALLY HAS NO MEANING. HOWEVER, AFTER A FEW CONTEXTUAL DESIGN EXCERSIZES, THE EMPTINESS BEGINS TO FIND MEANING. ARCHITECTURE, ALONG WITH ITS CONCEPTS OF TIME AND MATERIAL, IS ABLE TO FRAME EMPTINESS IN A PURE FORM. ULTIMATELY, IT IS THROUGH THIS FRAMED EMPTINESS THAT CHAOS BECOMES ORGANISED, CLEAR AND VISIBLE. ARCHITECTURE MAKES SPACE, OUT OF EMPTINESS. IN ADDITION, THIS SPACE IS GIVEN SHAPE THROUGH A THOUGHTFUL INTERWEAVING OF SEVERAL PARAMETERS SUCH AS LIGHT, AIR, TEXTURE, MATERIAL, RHYTHM, SYMMETRY, REPETITION, PROPORTION, SCALE, RELATIONALITY, PATTERNS, SCULPTURE, SILHOUETTE, STRUCTURE, ORGANISATION, AND COHERENCE. THESE PARAMETERS ENABLE THE CONVERSATION ON ARCHITECTURE AND REPRESENT THE BASIS OF THE ARCHITECTURAL VOCABULARY/LEXICON. THROUGHOUT THE EDUCATIONAL FORMATION OF ARCHITECTURE, ONE NOT ONLY LEARNS ABOUT PARAMETERS AS SUCH, BUT ALSO THE GREATER STAGE: ONE LEARNS THE RELEVANCE AND VALUE OF CONTEXT. EVERYTHING ONE DESIGNS OR CREATES, MUST BE RELATIONAL TO CONTEXT. IN ARCHITECTURE THIS ALSO IMPLIES THAT A DESIGN MUST FIT INTO SEVERAL CONTEXTUAL FRAMEWORKS AND ON SEVERAL CONTEXTUAL SCALES, FOR EXAMPLE: A CHAIR FINDS ITSELF IN A ROOM, WHICH FINDS ITSELF IN A A HOUSE, WHICH FINDS ITSELF IN A CERTAIN KIND OF SURROUNDING, AND THAT SURROUNDING EXISTS WITHIN AN URBAN ENVIRONMENT. IN AS MUCH, MOST DESIGN ASSIGNMENTS ATTEMPT TO APPROACH AND REASON FROM AN EXISTING CONTEXTUAL FRAMEWORK, CULTURE AND LOCATION. THIS EXCERSIZE TEACHES ONE TO STEP AWAY FROM THE RATHER SIMPLISTIC APPRECIATION OF SENSORY QUALITIES AIMED AT VISUAL PLEASURE DERIVING FROM ARCHITICETURALLY ISOLATED OBJECTS, OFTEN REMOVED FROM THE PHYSICAL, CULTURAL, HISTORIC AND SOCIAL ENVIRONMENT. CONTEXT IS THUS THE REALITY FROM WHICH A STRUCTURE DERIVES IT’S FORM: ONE MUST FIRST ANALYZE THE CIRCUMSTANCES AND BACKGROUND OF A PLACE BEFORE THE AMBITIONS OF A FORM CAN BE FORMULATED AND IN ORDER TO DEVISE A METHOD TO THE DESIGN. A CONTEXTUAL BUILDING STUDY IS ALSO NECESSARY BEFORE ONE CAN MAKE ANY ASSUMPTIONS CONCERNING THE SOCIETAL NEEDS, AIMS AND POTENTIAL OPPORTUNITIES OF A PARTICULAR PLACE, AND IN ORDER TO CONTRIBUTE TO THESE AIMS AND NEEDS IN A COHERENT AND NOURISHING MANNER. IDEALLY, ARCHITECTURE IS DEDICATED TO THE ORGANISATION AND THE HIGHLIGHTING OF THE ORGANIC, HUMAN, CONTEXTS. HOWEVER, WHEN NO SPECIFIC SITE HAS BEEN DESIGNATED FROM WHICH CONTEXTUAL REFERENCE CAN BE DRAWN, A TYPOLOGY STUDY MUST BE CONDUCTED TO PRECEDE THE PROJECT IN ORDER TO CREATE AN EASILY INTERPRETABLE STRUCTURE THAT ADHERES TO THE EXPECTED EXPERIENCE, REQUIRED OF SUCH A SPACE. IN ADDITION SUCH A STRUCTURE MUST BE FLEXIBLY APLICABLE TO SEVERAL TYPES OF LOCATIONS – NOT WITHSTANDING THEIR CULTURAL CONTEXT.


AMBITION FOR THE ARCHITECT, AS FOR AN ARTIST OR A WRITER, THE INITIAL CHALLENGE LIES IN DEFINING, AND CRACKING OPEN THE MEANING, OF A MOMENT IN SOCIAL, CULTURAL AND HISTORIC TIME. HAVING THE ABILITY TO ADAPT FLEXIBLY TO AN IDENTITY MEANS FIRST OF ALL BEING ABLE TO EMBOODY AN IDENTIY. ARCHITECTURE MUST BE ABLE TO CAPTURE AN IDEA, AN ERA AND A MOMENT. THE SECOND CHALLENGE IS TO RENDER THIS CAPTURED MOMENT ETERNAL, FLUID AND ALIVE – THUS, SUSTAINABLE. LIKE PEOPLE, SUCCESSFUL ARCHITECTURE IS AKIN TO ITS OWN ERA AND CULTURE, WHILE ALWAYS STRIVING/ AIMING/LEANING TOWARDS AN INTERACTION WITH THE FUTURE. AS CHANGE IS A CONSTANT ATTRIBUTE TO NATURAL LIFE, SPATIAL PLANNING – THOUGH SEEMINGLY STATIC – MUST BE DESIGNED TO REMAIN ADAPTABLE TO THIS CONSTANT CHANGE OVER THE YEARS. THE MULTIFARIOUS WAYS IN WHICH FLEXIBLY DESIGNED STRUCTURES CAN ADAPT TO DIFFERENT NEEDS AND USES, AND THUS ITS ABILITY TO TAKE ON MANY DIFFERENT TYPES OF IDENTITIES, RENDERS ITS QUALITY MORE SUPERIOR TO A STRUCTURE THAT REMAINS STATIC AND CRUMBLES UNDER THE PRESSURE OF TIME. UNIVERSAL PARAMETERS TO BE TAKEN INTO CONSIDERATION THAT CAN INFLUENCE THE LONGEVITY OF SUCH A MULTIFACETED STRUCTURE, INCLUDE PROPORTION, SCALE, LIGHT, AIR, TEXTURE AND CONTRAST. TODAY, MORE THAN EVER, ARCHITECTURE IS ALLIGNING ITSELF WITH THESE PRINCIPLES OF LONGEVITY, ADAPTABILITY AND SUSTAINABILITY, PARTICULARLY THROUGH THE FOCUS ON INTELLIGENT RUINS. AN INTELLIGENT RUIN IMPLIES THE CREATION OF A SUSTAINABLE SHELL OR CASCO THAT IS NOT ONLY IDEALLY LOCATED FOR IT’S MATRIAL QUALITIES, BUT ALSO EFFICIENT AND FLEXIBLE. ARCHITECTS ARE LATE BLOOMERS.THEY LEARN TO INTEGRATE MANY DIFFERENT DISCIPLINES AND DOMAINS AS WELL AS RESPONSABILITIES, AND MUST ATTEMPT TO MAKE A BALANCED END-PRODUCT THAT ANSWERS TO THE COMPLEX FUNCTIONAL AND EMOTIONAL NEEDS OF ITS USERS. THIS PROCESS IS ONE OF MUTLIPLE TRIALS AND ERRORS. IT TAKES TIME TO INTEGRATE SO MANY CONCERNS INTO A COHESIVE PRODUCT. AS A STUDENT I BELIEVED I WOULD BE ABLE TO GRASP THE MEANING OF ARCHITECTURE AFTER MY FIVE YEAR TRAINING. THIS IS SOMETHING I NOW KNOW WAS A RATHER NAÏVE STANCE, AS THE MEANING OF ARCHITECTURE CONTINUED TO GAIN A WIDER AND WIDER MEANING – PARTICULARLY ONCE I BEGAN TO INTEGRATE THE GLOBAL CONTEXT, AS WELL AS THOSE OF TIME, SPACE AND LONGEVITY . THE TRUE AND CONCRETE MEANING OF ARCHITECTURE, AS AN IDEAL FORM, REMAINS DIFFICULT TO GRASP AS ITS USE AND AMBITIONS, AS WELL AS ITS FORM, CHANGE AND DEVELOP ACCORDING TO THE CHANGING NEEDS AND DEFINITIONS WHICH SOCIETY GIVES TO IT. THROUGHOUT MY STUDIES, MUSIC HAS BEEN THE DRIVING INSPIRATION BEHIND ALL MY ARCHITECTURAL INSPIRATIONS. I CONSTANTLY FIND CONNECTIONS BETWEEN MUSIC AND ARCHITECTURE: MUSIC IS ALSO CONSTRUED FROM A FOUNDATION, HUES, RYTHMS, REPETITION, TEMPO, CONTRASTS, STRATIFICATION, AND PROPORTION. BUT IT IS PARICULARLY THE COMPOSITION AND CONSTRUCTIVE PRINCIPLES IN MUSIC, THE ART OF ADJOINING INDIVIDUAL COMPONENTS AND THE CREATION OF AN INTEGRAL ENTITY, THAT ALSO INSPIRE ME TO ARCHITECTURE.

THE IDENTITY OF AN ARCHITECT IS DEFINED BY THEIR KNOWLEDGE, EXPERIENCE AND SKILL. THROUGH THIS KNOWLEDGE RESOURCE THEY ARE ABLE TO ADEQUATELY ENGAGE IN PROBLEM SOLVING ACTIVITIES AND ANALYSE SITUATIONS. ABSOLUTE COMMAND OF THIS KNOWLEDGE AND THE ABILITY TO APPLY, TO BRING TO LIFE, AND TO ULTIMATELY BUILD A PROJECT IS OF UTMOST IMPORTANCE. THIS IS NOT MERELY A SAFETY ISSUE, THE ARCHITECT MUST ALSO BE EQUIPPED TO ANALYSE, TO UNDERSTAND, IMPROVE AND RENEW EXISTING CIRCUMSTANCES. HE IS ABLE TO DO SO ONLY THROUGH PRACTICE, EXPERIENCE AND A SENSE OF EMPATHY FOR THE HUMAN ASPECT. WORKING IN A TECHNICALLY INFORMED AND FORWARD THINKING MANNER, THE ARCHITECT IS, IN AS MUCH, ALWAYS READY TO FIND ALTERNATIVE, MORE SUSTAINABLE, SOLUTIONS AND TO ANTICIPATE TYPES OF SOCIETAL AND EVEN ENVIRONMENTAL GROWTH. THE DEVELOPMENT OF INTELLIGENT SUSTAINABLE CASCOS CAN OFFER A SOLUTION TO THE NEED OF SUCH SUSTAINABLE ARCHITECTURE, AND KNOWING HOW TO APPROCH THIS AMBITION HAS BECOME PART OF THE CONTEMPORARY ARCHITECT’S KNOWLEDGE DATABASE. THE DEVELOPMENT OF EXISTING PROPERTY AND THE USE OF CULTURALLY AND HISTORICALLY RELEVANT SITES FOR BUILDING INFRASTRUCTURES OCCURS MORE AND MORE FREQUENTLY, FOR MANY REASONS INCLUDING LACK OF SPACE AS WELL AS THE DESIRE TO DRAW TOURISM. IT IS IMPORTANT THAT APPROPRAITE INTERVENTIONS ARE MADE TO PROTECT SITES DEEMED CULTURALLY AND HISTORICALLY IMPORTANT – ENSURING THAT THE NEW DOES NOT OBSCURE OR OBSTRUCT THAT WHICH WAS THERE BEFORE. ON THE OTHER HAND, RENOVATION AND RELOCATION OF BUILDINGS MUST AIM TO ACHIEVE A REVITALISING EFFECT THROUGH RE-STRUCTURING AND DETAIL ORIENTED APPROACH. THE SKILLED ARCHITECT, AS A CREATOR AND DESIGNER OF SPACE, IS ABLE TO MAKE USE OF THE LEAST AMOUNT OF MATERIAL INPUT TO CREATE THE MOST EFFECTIVE USE OF SPACE. BESIDES THE OUTWARD GLANCE, THE ARCHITECT MUST UNDERSTAND THE COMFORT OF THE INTERIOR AS WELL. DESIGNING A STRUCTURE MUST NOT PRECLUDE THE ATTENTION TO THE POTENTIAL OF COMFORT AND ATMOSPHERE. A TOUGHT THROUGH QUALITATIVE STUDY ON SPACE CAN BE INFLUENCED BY CONTEXTUAL ELEMENTS, VOIDS, POROSITY IN SPACE, EMPTINESS, PATIOS, AIR, LIGHT, OPTIMAL ORIENTATION, TEXTURE, MATERIAL, SCALE, PROPORTION, DETAILING…WITH THESE ELEMENTS A SPACE WILL ADOPT A TIMELESS QUALITY AS PART OF ITS LASTING CHARACTER. IN ADDITION, THE ORGANISATION OF SPACE THAT INCLUDES THESE SUBTLE ELEMENTS, BRINGING FORTH THE MOST TRUE ASPECT OF ITS ELEMENTS AND FUNCTIONS, NOT ONLY TRANSLATES INTO THE APPEARANCE OF A FUNCTIONAL FORM, BUT ALSO LEADS TO SIMPLICITY AND LOGIC WHICH IN TURN MAXIMIZES NEGATIVE SPACE/OPEN SPACES. FINALLY, I BELIEVE THAT DESIGN EMBODIES A SEARCH TOWARDS ORGANISATION, BOTH WITHIN THE ELEMENTS AS WEL AS WITHIN THE SOCIO-CULTURAL SURROUNDINGS, AND CONTRIBUTING TO THE SPATIAL ORGANISATION OF SOCIETY. LOGICALLY, SOUND AND STABLE ARCHITECTURE IN A SOCIO-CULTURAL CONTEXT, IS TO THE GREATER BENEFIT TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF SOCIETY AS WHOLE.

ISSUES Since 1884, Stuivenberg hospital has been a tr usted feature of the landscape in which it finds itself. It is par t of the visual identity and visual collectif memor y of the area. This site , however, is scheduled to be transposed into a new, larger and improved site that will bring together the Sint-Erasmus hospital as well as the general Stuivenberg hospital. All but the psychiatric ward will disappear. As the original hospital buildings are considered to be par t of the land’s patrimony, it is of absolute necessity to conver t the old infrastr ucture into a new masterplan, in a manner that will not limit or destroy the integrity of the proper ty. While protecting it’s surface integrity, the redefining of the site should also attempt to redefine its functionality based on the needs of the residential and urban surroundings. In as much, and paradoxically, the old hospital can be seen as both a burden as well as a meaningful enclave within the community.

OBJECTIVE The objective is to refit the site to adapt to its new environment and to become of renewed use to the community. In this project, the relevance of the site towards its use and functionality as well as how it can contribute to the new structure, is considered. At the onset the site is perceived to have been an enclave within a 19th century urban structure. This is a relevant point in the project because, from it, the ability for the site to represent an entity, as well as the aim to reinstate the original relevance of the site can be assigned as a goal.

“Progress is the ability to maintain what exists while repairing what was never completed and with the memory of what has not yet occurred.” (awg architecten)

The presence of the phsychiatric ward on the site, as well as its aim to expand, renders the project quite interesting seeing as it remains a taboo to combine psychiatrie and residential areas.

The site is a duality between de site as a ‘buildingblock’ and the site as an ‘enclave ’.

SPACE

publiek collectief semi-publiek privĂŠ

With the masterplan that shows the publiccollective-private space division, one can see the clarity of logic in making this a private hospital with clear public flow through and a community feeling. The current building counts four private internal spaces. By working with sequences and the shortcut which open up the closed off inner spaces, the external spaces are refreshed and can be experienced in a novel manner. You’re now entering a buidling and systematically the outer spaces become more private or more public. By enhancing the public quality to the outside spaces, with public services on ground level on the inner levels, the public needs of the neighborhood are met at the same time as giving the site a more functional and modern character. The streets in the north area of this neighborhood, particularly the Boerhaavestraat, will be renovated to create several enhanced qualitative community spaces and squares as well as to make the residential area calmer with fewer moving vehicles passing through. The relationship between the schools and the site will be enhanced in this manner because of the renewed level of safety and accessability to the site.

CONCEPT BUILDING ENVIRONMENT The public space is designed to meet the needs and atmosphere of the surrounding context. At the busiest side of the building, the will be an elevated level of building so as to create a noise buffer to the calmer inside areas.

publieke ruimte De publieke ruimte is ontworpen in functie van de sfeer van de omliggende straten. De straten die in het oosten en het zuiden grenzen aan de site zijn zeer drukke straten. Hier gaan we een hogere en densere bebouwing voorzien als buffer. De straten in het westen en het noorden zijn zeer rustige straten met lokaal verkeer. De straat in het Noorden, de Boerhaavestraat, wordt heraangelegd en verkeersvrij gemaakt om enkele kwalitatieve openbare pleinen te creëren (er is nood aan in de wijk!) en de site naar de rustige met de woonbuurt open te werken. De straat in het westen heeft nu een rustige sfeer en zorgt, dankzij het typerende hek, de pesthuisjes en de bomen, voor ademruimte. Deze sfeer willen we vasthouden, daarom hebben we besloten om aan deze zijde niets bij te bouwen en de parksfeer van deze zijde te versterken. Het park en de autovrije straat met kwalitatievere open ruimte zorgen er ook voor dat de relatie tussen de 2 scholen en de site versterkt wordt. De site bestaat uit een opeenvolging van pleinen met verschillende sferen. (zie uitleg sequenties p8) De aanleg van de publieke buitenruimte wordt vormgegeven door een modulering van 60 in betontegels, gras, groen, bomen en banken. Deze modulering volgt de aslijnen en versterkt de geometrie.

Besides the demolition of the northside buildings which are not considered cultural heritage, the newer and more recently added sections will also be removed to generate more exposure to the original building. At the level of the shortcut hallways that had been built at a later point in time, will also be removed to enhance the public space and passingtrhough.

On the upperfloors of the tower buildings there will be residential functions. The buildings surrounding the psychiatry ward will be considered as an extension of a daycenter and will include, amongst other things, assisted living situations, counceling, psychiatric care homes, a bike atelier, carpenters shop and a work shop for fysical rehab and fitness. The residents of the neighborhood will be granted access to these facilities in order to foster integration between the two populations. The current sportfacility of the psychiatry will be demolished and replaced by a district sport hall for as well as the psychiatry as the neighborhood. There will even be some opportunities for residence on the site itself, in order to enhance the level of movement and thus a level of maintenance to social control on the site. Hospital building: The old hospital building itself, dating from the 80’s as well, will be potentially transformed into resident situations, youthhostel and could even include a new school, but for this assignment it will be an office.

The freestanding, circular, pavilions will be renatable for external occasions. Preference will be given to outsourced caretaker ventures, as this will fit better with the cohesive character of the site. The other buildings will be home to music, art and cultural centers, of use and value to the neighborhood. What was originally the stoke house, will now become the administrative headquarters of a neighboring school.

Park Spoor Noord is een project dat het oud en verwaarloosd spoorwegterrein omvormt tot een hedendaags, duurzaam en uitgestrekt stedelijk landschapspark. Hierbij wordt de nadruk gelegd op groen, licht, ruimte, ontspanning, cultuur en sport. Men gebruikte voor het park vooral gerecycleerde materialen. Een voorbeeld hiervan zijn de aangelegde paden in het park die afkomstig zijn van het vroegere spoorwegterrein. Het park wordt verlicht d.m.v LED-lampen en de geplaatste banken zullen ook langs de onderzijde YHUOLFKWZRUGHQ'HYHUOLFKWLQJJHEHXUWHQNHORSSODDWVHQGLHZRUGHQJHEUXLNWGRRUYRHWJDQJHUVHQĂ€HWVHUV'HJURRWVWHFLUFXODWLHwegen die aan het park liggen zijn de ItaliĂŤlei en Noorderlaan. Zicht over het park gebeurt vooral vanaf de Noorderlaan en over een zeer korte afstand vanaf de ItaliĂŤlei. Vanaf de Londenstraat, die ook veel gebruikt wordt, is het te bebouwen gebied niet zichtbaar. Straten zoals bijvoorbeeld de Ellemanstraat liggen zeer dicht bij het park, maar worden niet zo frequent gebruikt. Langs het noorden zorgt een brug voor de afbakening. Hierachter ligt industriegebied. Het park is een soort overgangszone van dichtbebouwd leefgebied naar een open industriegebied. Het parkgedeelte zal hier dus functioneren als een soort buffer. Langs het zuiden vormt een straat met hoogbouw en een grote opslagplaats een scheidingslijn. Langs het westen wordt de afbakening gevormd door de Leien met daar achter hoogbouw.

Accessibility The buildings on site are mostly accessible through a centralized interior space rather than the street side. This seemed to be the most logical option as, morphologically speaking, this lends to the building’s originally ‘inside-out’ character. Additionally this feeds into the hightened level of social control in the inner area. Connectivity The entire area is accessible to pedestrians. The cycling route runs past the new inner road and past the car free Boerhaavestraat. Traffic will be redirected away from the central area. The exisiting bus stop will be kept in place. Access: day - night During the daytime, the entire complex and site – with the exeption of the semi-public squares – will be accessible to everyone. In the evening, the park zone as well as the shortcut to the Lange Kongostraat and the squares located between the heritage sites, will be closed off for the purpose of avoiding uncontrolled social conditions such as loitering or vandalism. The remainder areas wil remain accessible as they ensure permanent access to the residential complexes – which also enhance the level of positive social conditions.


Office space A neutrality and sobriety is sought in the façade in order to enhance, rather than detract from, the culturally important and visually interesting entrance building. The office building is designed to according to sustainable principles. The main infrastructure is maintained and restored while the facades are stripped. We foresee a neutral façade so that the multiple new functions, such as the office, living areas, school, youth hostel, of the complex will be made possible. We foresee a neutral façade so that the multiple new functions, such as the office, living areas, school, youth hostel, of the complex will be made possible. The remaining structure of the left wing functions as a disc structure veering away from the column structure that prevails throughout the other wings. The idea is to create an external, self-sustaining structure in the front of the office construction in order to create an uniform building without structure deviation between the structural beeches. The façade is very similar to the façade in front of the psychiatry building which was recently designed by Osar architects. A small variation is thought of as an addition to the façade principle that takes into account its orientation. The southern façade is slanted in order to deflect the sun. The northern façade differs from the static façade plan made of wood and functions as a bookshelf on the inside. Both east and western facades are a combination of both principles.


The Residential blocks and the Psychiatrie ward The aim is to create a calm rythic existence that adjoins to the park/garden scape on the site. The commercial section on the ground level will be finished with wood using the same wood as the office faรงade, and integrates a little into the faรงade. The other building levels will be finished with a grey brick, because it is considered a more sustainable material as well as one that adds to the texture and mass of the building. The faรงades adjoin to the renovated psychiatry facades of Osar. The southern facades are designed as variations where by the sunscreen combine the railing.


Neighborhood sporting facility The sporting facility is located in the basement, with view an upward view onto the ground level, but without the sunlight disturbing those using the facility. In this area, the rowhouses will have slanted rooftops in order to adjoin to the atmosphere of the street. This theme wil be continued onto the sporting facility, in the sahpe of a shedroof, which is used to deflect direct sunlight into the sports center.

CENTER

The demand of care is the designing researchproject that touches upon both the subjects of architecture and urban planning. The aim is to foster the development of a novel architectural-urbanized care typology as a new basis for the urban environment. The local ser vices center (LSC) is a center compiled of several ser vices that all aim to enable the independence of the elder ly by allowing them to live on their own while preventing them from falling into solitude often experienced by the elder ly as they become left behind. To do do so the ser vice center has access to several resources.

- a local ser vice center will be subsidized for 32 hour s per week, given a space of (max.) 600 m 2 , and is closed during the weekend. - a predominant function inherent to an LSC is to is usable by the community - privatize these functions and add local shops (baker y, newspaper shop, pharmacy,‌) => to join all daily needs for senior s to give something in return to the neighborhood.

By par tnering with commercial shopping venues, the subsidies will go a longer way and the building will be able to stay open longer and thus used longer by the elder ly who come to congregate there .

The ground level is a commercial basement with a shopping gallery located around a public square. The entrance will face the street level as well as a grassy patch. It serves as a clearly defined entrance and infopoint for the LSC . On the public cetral square , a large terras as well as cafeteria are to be found. Due to the shape of the buildings these two are protected from the noise of the street and of trafic.

On the fir st floor, headed towards the LSC , is a librar y that is connected to the entrance bij a wide staircase , that could also ser ve as an auditorium for lectures, or as a hang out for reading. Next to this staircase is a multifunctional space that could easily be used as a game or crafts room. On the public parcour s lies a sceondhand shop as well as an exhibition space , which can easily be used to exhibit object being produced in the crafts room.

On the second floor a spor tsbar and patio as well as fitness center are to be found. The connection is made possible via a public staircase that could also be used a an atrium for small musical performances.

HOUSING

BRAEM: R E N OVAT I O N The design wil be situated in a masterplan called “InsdideOut” and take place around the Jos Van Geellaan in the city of Deurne. With this plan, the green approach and vision of Braem will come to light and be re-interpreted to fit some more modern standards and demands. Through this plan, a clam green oasis comes to life amidst the bustle of the busy city. The central parking spot wil make way for a green park.The traffic circulation is moved to the outer periphery of the city and rarely touches upon the residential area. Braem believed that organization of ones living environment in such a way could liberate communities and individuals in a profound way. Light, air, sun, greenery, space, safety, play as well as spaces to circulate, he believed, were a human right. Further, Braem pondered about the optimal placement and most natural placement of buildings within communities. The presence of green spaces generates the creation of positive atmosphere and openness. As the residential homes are alternating vis-à-vis each other, small-scale communal spaces emerge amongst them. The seperate private spaces between the buildings leads to a feeling of semi-openness.

Braem foresaw his social homes with many more communal attributes than what is typically available or deemed necessar y to residential welfare communities: public furniture (benches etc.), a community center, diver se array of stores, etc. The neighborhood that Jos Van Geelaan shows examples of badly organized communities and how badly they function. The relationship to the community and the space are , for instance , much weaker.

Often the issue lays in homes developed in the 1950’s where the ideal social housing consisted of a livingroom of 20 m 2 , large enough for a table and two armchair s, as wel as ver y small kitchens and bathrooms. Social housing is no longer looked at in this way, but many of the social housing of the mid 20 th centur y is in dire need of renovation.


The concept of the intelligent ruin implies the ability to sur vive the decades, generations and lifestyles, both stylistically and in terms of material. They must, impor tantly, maintain their uselfulness to society across the new trends and methods of usage. Naturally, the intelligent r uin is only tr uly intelligent if and when it is able to attain a sustainable and eco-friendly goal. The design will also embody a constructive intelligence that plays on flexibility, user changes and changes in the urban conditions that it must answer to. An intelligent approach, centralizing and orienting the constr uction proper ly, will enable a better over sight and action where unforeseen changes occur. The installations are integratable in the cement constr uctions.Within the rational buildingstructure there is enough freedom to play around with the internal space division. The prefab concrete skeleton provides the only internal str ucture that suppor t the floor and ceiling. Because of this a flexible and reusable str ucture exists – which are already geared towards amplifying the amount of light, air and space will be present in the home.

1. The relationship between public and private spaces must be developed: Par k spaces vs. Par king spaces.

2. Public spaces must be developed in the contextual setting and must pay attention to the transitions between public and private access.

3. Recognizability and readability of an existing as well as a new building despite new materials and constr uction methods used.

4. Maintaining the stratification and articulation in the façade’s build up of Braem’s wor k; aiming to continue the concept of intelligent façades.

5. An intelligent ruin implies a sustainable casco that implicates flexibility, compactness and a favorable orientation.


The compact build of a building leads to more efficient energy use and even enables a reduction in the expenditure of materials. Within the building site is the AZ Monica Deurne, a hospital which already aims to include the community in its expansion projects. It is a public city-owned hospital that offer s care as well as employment for the community residents and people in the area. There is the potential to connect housing accommodation and care, which will also improve the connectivity and quality with the environment. In this project, AZ Monica Deurne hospital chose to generate adjoining student houses for those students completing internships at the hospital. This program is completed by the addition of public functions in public areas such as café’s, libraries and studyrooms. The association between open, green spaces as well as the architectural volumetr y is of cour se difficult. The relationship with the inside and the outside is stimulated by the public functions on groundlevel.

The existing str ucture is maintained in as far as is possible. The rest of the str ucture is stripped/dismantled – leaving an intelligent casco. To render the architecture of Braem recognizable and accentuate it, the new building will be created of different material as well as with a new constr uction method. As such, the existing cement str ucture will be dressed with a new, wel isolated façade and prefaced with a new steel constr uction. The new galler y is a par t of the new constr uct and functions as seam between both new and old str uctures. This makes for a recognizable readability of Braem’s architecture. The favorable implementation of the buildings orientation allows the building of an intelligent façade. The long South-West façade, the transparency of the glass is heightened to enable maximum access of light and warmth from the sun – par ticular ly impor tant during the winter months. In the summer the the, the heat is held off by the galleries and the sunblinds. The side facades remain massive str uctural walls without windows. The Nor th-East façades will be characterized by the existing façades. The ar ticulation of the façades is purified and the the ver ticality accentuated. The façades are isolated according to the correct standards and the coldbirdges eliminated. The surface is upholstered with prefabricated façade elements.

During the ADSL-week architect Mathieu Wellner led a wor kshop with the theme congr uence entitled “In what style should we build?”. A visible consensus between different projects reflects and amplifies the philosophy of the designer s and leads to the development of a common style and method. In this wor kshop attendees were given the oppor tunity to stand in the shoes of the other designer s and to influence their way of thinking – perhaps even their style . The project’s aim is to redesign the burned down night club Café Capital in the city par k of Antwerp, in the re-used style . This approach can be seen as a renewed style with the maximum maintenance of respect for the existing. The complex will remain a nightclub including a dancing area, restaurant and bar, large kitchen and lounge adjoining the par k, After the fire , the walls of the nightclub that were able to stay standing will be rebuilt with a different kind of cement brick. The rooftop which was destroyed,will be replaced by 4 different kinds of rooftops in order to create 4 different atmospheres within the complex. C URRENT

INTEGRAL RUIN At the onset of the design, one begins with a framewor k and a setting, though this project depar ts from a str ucture, an addition to an existing building. Gradually, some additional parameter s such as a set of goals, location, and the wider context determined the design of the building. The building becomes an intelligent ruin, a str ucture that is perhaps able to accommodate other goals, and thus – by facilitating the integration of several goals – is able to become a sustainable building. An initial study concerns the development of the appropriate completion of the entirety or the ensemble, a typology as a morfological answer to the built identity of the complex. Mass ver sus void, the public-collectiveprivate use od the building, space, circulation, accessibility, str ucture, materialization – are all aspects which justify and complete the ensemble. The str ucture receives a face; the ensemble is typified through a form of hierarchy and repetition that become legible in the tektonic. The conrete context, however, requires a cer tain kind of transformation and the manipulation of the autonomous, the abstract and studied building.


S T E P 1: • Continuity of the tripar tite (A-B-A) of the existing building for a recognizable entity • Maintaining the original footprint of the r uin

S T E P 2: • Changing the direction for a more optimal orientation • Entrance of the new building at the side of the long square for optimal accessability.

S T E P 3: • Movement of the nor thern wing • Scale adjustment of the longer square • More accessible public character

S T E P 4: • Development of squares with different atmospheric penchants • Redefinition of the dead end street through the limitations of the new building

CINECITTÀ

N E I G H B O R H O O D M OV I E T H E AT R E The assignment assessed the design of a small cinemacomplex, and aimed for it to become a city within a city. Until just a few year s ago, the shipping quar tes were synonymous with prostitution and criminality.However, with a thorough approach to policy, the city has been able to visibly change the cour se of development for this neighborhood. Dishonest trade practices have been driven out, and prositution bound to ver y strict r ules and regulations. One of the policy goals has cer tainly been to find a way to return the area to the local residents. The movie theater, as new venue and attraction for – and of – the neighborhood, dissolves the simple passage way streets ands turns them into lively local meeting points of the community with lots of creative potential. To ensure the lasting sustainability of the complex the designer s chose to make the café, rather than the cinema room, the central point of the complex.

The entirety is thus built up from a around a large hall or foyer that is the café, where one must at some point come in contact with. The café walls on the ground floor are made of glass and can be opened up untot the neighborhood street during the summer. This way, the inhabitants can easily pop in for a drink, without having to necessarily par take in the cinematic experience . The café is also available for receptions and community festivities, making the place even more par t of the community.

The entire neighborhood, with its rough past in violence , crime and prostitution, was popular ly known as ‘sin city’. Of dire impor tance was thus to improve the reputation and characteristics of this neighborhood through sound public relations tactics which included the promotion of culturally and touristically interesting features. This approach has this also lead to the decision to open-up the café as much as possible – to make it transparent and welcoming.

R OOFTERRAS

The activities on the inside of the café are exposed and visible to the surrounding area – this leads to a heightened sense of safety, social cer tainty and to some extent the sentiment of social control. Str uctually, the building breathes, and the spaces are connecting to one another.

THE OLD SHIPPING DOCKS

The restaurer and footprint of the subdued Southern docks (the former shipping dock) determines the rational structure of the covered marketplace. In this way, spatial planning that will include the surrounding areas can be aimed for. The covered marketplace will be accessible from all sides. Products will be efficiently brought in on the side of the parking area.Inside, the stands are ordered in a way that they do not obstruct the light nor detract from the spaciousness. To optimize the relationship between the inside and the outside, the typical cobblestones of the region are continued from the docks into the covered marketplace area. The structural elements are purified to achieve a rational, analytical design. The covered marketplace is made of an early 20 th centur y industrial steel skeletal structure, dressed in recycled red brick and glass. 1881

THE STREAM

The designing of the information pavilion must correspond accurately to the other planned wor k as well as to those plans already concluded and to must harmonize with the infrastr uctural design of the Oosterweelconnection. As we think about the harbor of Antwerp, or about the river Schelde, well known for its well engineerd passageway optimal for container transpor tation, then we must of cour se aim to include the use of container s in the design as these are par t of the visual heritage of the city. Container s are robust, equipped against storms, reusable , cheap, easily assembles and (steel container s) are relatively light. The star tingpoint for the pavilion is that it should be placed close to the construction, so that visitor s will be able to enjoy a full view of what it is they are informing about. The infor mation pavilion will have both an inside and outside option. The outside area will anticipate an open area where a model of the wor ks will be visible on a r aised area measur ing 5 on 3 meter s.

I NFO.PAVILJOEN:

The inside area will include a circular circulation track with ar tworks, multimedia, and screenings are easily palced. A winding staircase is to be ascer tained in the ver tical container and it will be the connection between the inside and the outside areas. One of the four ver tical containers will consist of restrooms, while two other ver tical containers can be used as both storage space and exhibition space.
