BALANCE ARCHITECTURE WITH LIGHT A challenging project for the most prestigious University in China in the heart of its historical campus. In 2009 a prestigious American Foundation (The Leo KoGuan Foundation) and Beijing University invited Kokaistudios to design the building for the new faculty of law located in a prestigious location within the historical campus of China leading University. This particular site, where the pagoda symbol of the university is standing, required considerable effort in terms of design in order to find architectural answers that could satisfy and meld in a harmonious way the heritage elements, the beautiful natural environment and the new contemporary building. This prestigious project completed in October 2010 is considered the milestone of a new era for Beijing University, and a symbol for better and more environmentally sustainable standard of living for the future University Community and for architectural buildings within that community. This project has been conceived on a rigid volumetric shape imposed by the strict regulation protecting the historical site and at the same time by the necessity to fulfill all the functional requirements of the new faculty. The rigorous style requested to be accepted by the large number of heritage commissions have been interpreted in creative way by Kokaistudios by proposing an elegant use of few materials, concrete plasters and local stones with capabilities to transmit day light and a clever use of skylights, sinking gardens in order to increase the use of natural light and thermal efficiency of the building. Kokaistudios transformed the facades to become light filters and diffusing soft daylight light all over the interiors. The entire system of internal spaces has been designed by our team so to upgrade the standards of working, living, and studying of the future professors and students, using sustainable materials and creating aggregation facilities and spaces that could satisfy the flexible demands of the faculty in the future.

Since the late 90’s, Ector Hoogstad Architecten has been closely involved with the development of Twente University. A master plan was drawn up for the campus which covers the urban design. Jan Hoogstad, the supervisor, is responsible for monitoring all planning. The master plan divides up the campus into 2 urbanized parts: one for housing and leisure, the other for education and research. This concentration of building allows large parts of the surrounding park to remain untouched. Ector Hoogstad Architecten was commissioned to design three new buildings in the master plan: the new IT centre, the building for the combined faculties of Science and Technology, Mathematics and Computer Sciences (Carré) and the Institute for Nanotechnology (Nanolab). The latter two together form the heart of the Education and Research Centre. Carré houses all office and laboratory

facilities of the 2 faculties. The Nanolab accommodates the most valuable laboratories the university has to offer. Carré is a five-storey building enclosing a central courtyard. The design has a singularly deep nave of 21.6 meters. This gives the building optimum flexibility, while the continuous rectangular routing facilitates smooth passage without any dead ends. As part of the project Hall B, the oldest university building on the campus has been renovated to become the main entrance of the Carré. From here Carré can be accessed via a wide transparent corridor, crossing the courtyard at the level of the first floor; it provides access to the adjacent Nanolab. The Carré together with the new Nanolab form an ensemble that connects all existing buildings that make up the Education and Research centre.

Mehrdad Yazdani For most of his design career, Mehrdad Yazdani has practiced at the intersection of the large office and the small studio. Named by Progressive Architecture magazine as one of the world’s top emerging designers just three years after earning his Master of Architecture from Harvard’s Graduate School of Design, Mehrdad has succeeded in bringing a design sensibility characteristic of design studios to an international portfolio spanning typologies. Throughout his career, Mehrdad has main-tained a consistent and clear design vision – he is known for a striking ability to combine experimental design with a mature resolution of pragmatic requirements. Today, as a principal of Cannon Design’s national practice and Design Director of the west coast-based Yazdani Studio, Mehrdad is a respected member of the international design community. Irrespective of typology, his architecture continues to exhibit the delicate balance between art and function.

“The one thing that unifies our approach is the search for clarity. We are very analytical and don’t bring preconceived ideas to the table. We get chosen because we bring freshness and innovation to the process. The over-riding unifying feature is the search for the clear, elegant solution.” Jason studied architecture at the Bartlett School of Architecture at London University and at the Royal College of Art. He has an extensive track record of designing public buildings for the performing arts, most recently leading the BFLS team on the newly completed, competition-winning scheme for the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama in Cardiff, comprising a concert hall, theatre, gallery space and café.

Morphogenesis Morphogenesis is recognized globally as one of the leading Architecture firms from India. Founded in 1996, the firm is based out of New Delhi and is a collective offering specialized services in Architecture, Interior design, master planning, Urban design, Landscape design and Environmental design consultancy.

It is this all-inclusive nature of design with a unique focus on passive and low energy architecture that they believe, will define the new emergent Indian architecture.
