competition “vizzion awards” 5ar vision for brussels FLUorCITY team: quinten de cuyper

Brussels still mourns about the Zenne. How can they ever get over the fact that they buried their river of origin? With the disappearnce of this river, Brussels lost one of his main fibers and at the same time ousted the history of the city. The poor river was blamed for everthing and for sure, it was a dirty river. It spreaded many diseases and as we may believe Sir Anspach: “The Zenne is so cloudy that even the strongest sunlight wouldn’t be reflected by the water.”

And so in 1865 the covering started. Jules Victor Anspach, the 34 year old mayor at that time made it a task of his own. He wanted this project to be finished as soon as possible but many problems rised. The costs were high, the constructions were difficult and at the end, the contractor went broke. In 1870 the project was called ‘a joke that turned out very wrong. ’ Though this joke , this first destruction was the first step in the later revolutions of Brussels. The traces who were left behind by this project formed a nice alibi for the next demolisheners. 100 ans de débat sur la ville, 1840 _ 1940, Archives d’Architecture moderne, 1984, p78

generating place 5ead folding city brussels team: stephanie vander goten

Generating 200% of space. how? by folding. We determinated an activation area around the ‘porte de ninove’ near the ‘canal de charleroi’. based on the urban activity and functions we created our zoningmap, that need to be activated into the site for 200%. the urban regulation of the site is determinated by our MAXIPLAN. These maxiplan is the urban envelope of hights, lights, activation, accesability and views. these values are acquired by the ecomical balance we deployed of the site. the shape of our monsterproject is based on the play rules we designed for folding with an urban connection idea. We have the intention to make a folding city where leftspace is non existing and folded slabs have more then one role to play in our monster.

folding lounge chair 4ead tensegrity and folding course team: stephanie vander goten, stijn boon, olmo peeters, quinten de cuyper

Our lounge chair is a sequence of “reverse fold� moves. The prototype was fold out of a 80x300cm paper. without glue maximal use of material perfect transfer of the forces The sum (two times the height of the elevation) + (the width of the seat) must be the same as the width of the paper. We didn’t controle the total form, but you can recognise a human body, head and knees are high and smaller than bottom and foot, which are low and wide. The working height is high enough to use a thin material, like paper. The force is mostly needed on the upper surface, so we think a synthetic material is a better choice.

‘kenniscluster’ - 1st year internship culture house arnhem , the netherlands team: neutelings riedijk architects

This cultural building is organized as a public route that meanders up from the narrow streets of the medieval city center of Arnhem. The activities of this knowledge center enroll along this public cascade: library, reading rooms, music classes, art studio’s, study areas, exposition spaces, auditorium, cafeteria and bookshop. A composition of wooden showcases as a spine for display, storage and vertical circulation forms the center of the building. Around it, large surfaces can be arranged in a flexible way. The route to the top culminates in a panoramic roof terrace, overlooking the Rhine River.

model - 1st year internship opera and ballet theater perm state tchaikovsky team: neutelings riedijk architects

Design: .the building as a landscape. .three iconic volumes in the park. .the classical park enhanced. The historic theater building remain the focal point. The new buildings are modestly proportioned to the existing theater. The symmetry of the composition makes the historic theater building stand out in the middle. New public squares in front of the theaters welcomes the public.
