East Lothian

DUNBAR 56.006025, -2.512997

Located at the mouth of the Moray Firth, Dunbar has always been a strategic point for Scotland’s defense against invasion by sea. Playing a key role in the country’s independence, the burgh’s impressive military history burnt off to slowly become a regular guarrisson town during the two World Wars. After 1945, Dunbar slowly became Edinburgh’s most frequented vacation spot. Advertised as the sunniest place in Scotland with it’s new tidal pool, the town reached it’s touristic peak in the middle of the century. Today, Dunbar has become one of Edinburgh’s many commuter towns. With fishing in decline, Dunbar is losing it’s last connection to the sea. The site thereof offers a point of resistance between the new indoor swimming pool and the golfcourse.


East Lothian

DUNBAR 56.006025, -2.512997

Lamerhaven’s transformation into a defense structure was originally a civic undertaking. Throughout the years, the battery was operated by the people of Dunbar. With no clear indication on site, the battery can be mistaken for a minor historical structure compared to the castle. Looking at the clues on site, one can easily guess a defense structure, but two facts are missing : the battery played an honourable role as hospital/bomb shelter during Wold War I/IIand it is missing it’s pier.


East Lothian

DUNBAR 56.006025, -2.512997

The project consists of two parts. The first, a priority preservation project, for objective to keep the brick walls from degrading and falling apart in the sea. The second is the addition of ramps, giving universal access to the entire site, as well as the pier’s reconstruction. The first step will use the traditional technique of reinforcing dry-stone breakwaters with wooden wedges.Through this technique, the project will extend the monuments life by both making it durable and aesthetically pleasing. In addition, the soil accumulated over the years has blocked the battery’s interior room. Digging it up and opening a connection to the new pier creates an introspective space where the sea and wind can resonate.

The intervention is site-specific, carefully introduced in the ruins’ topography. All materials used are either local or in reference to the battery’s history. Concrete will serve as a reminder of the battery’s significance during the two wars, connecting the entrance with both the upper deck and the new lower room. A simple addition with minimal disruption to the existing character of the place. “Baloo, baloo, my wee wee thing, O saftly close thy blinkin’ e’e! Baloo, baloo, my wee wee thing, For thou art doubly dear to me. Thy daddy now is far awa’. A sailor laddie o’er the sea; But hope aye hechts his safe return. To you, my bonnie lamb, and me. Baloo, baloo, my wee wee thing, O saftly close thy blinkin’ e’e! Baloo, baloo, my wee wee thing, For thou art doubly dear to me.

GATOW 52.474853, 13.138755

The initial feeling about Gatow airport was of a disparate site split up by strong boundaries. The major interventions within a 50 year period broke up the area into a chaotic array of independent characters, in turn making it difficult to find a landscape reading from which to draw a comprehensive project. The thought process behind the analysis emerged from this problematic. The sheet was created to depict techniques used to approach the complicated scale inherent to the site. The composition further mimics an initial understanding of the site as it is seen. The process of reading the sheets simulates our experience of reading the landscape. This conveys a dynamic relationship between multiples scales.


West Berlin

GATOW 52.474853, 13.138755

At the edge of Berlin, located between traditional countryside and capital city, part of the site has suffered from urban sprawl. A typical developement, freshly built, in strong contrast to it’s surroundings. With relaxed planning regulations pushing for public appeal, the new development appears to have no coherent structure. A plot is given with no restrictions, creating a chaotic mess through the residents’ individual taste in architecture, a mixture of different shapes, styles and colours. An entangled mess of windows competing for a view towards the open landscape of the airfield.


West Berlin

GATOW 52.474853, 13.138755

The predominantly prefabricated houses that compose the new development, seem to have been parachuted on top of the airfield. An image which surprisingly fits within the area’s historical context. Even though the suburban typology can be easily critised, it offers a hint into the site’s activities during the cold war conflict. A few similarities can be brought up linking them together. The large open streets mimicks the airfield’s open space. The prefabricated architecture offers similarities with the army’s prefab barracks. Also, the airfield’s masterplan is an exact replica of a british base at the time. Both airfield and housing follow the same cut/paste thought process. In any other context, this type of development is to be critized, however here, it is surprinsly historically in-situ.


West Berlin

GATOW 52.474853, 13.138755

At this point in time, the shrubs and diverse vegetation of this marshland doesn’t appear to offer much recreational potential. A sparse amount of human activity can be seen, leaving the area mostly unused. A small arm emerging from the housing, stretches out into the adgacent marshland. Similar to a pier, the existing design element can be seen as a contemplative platform onto this sea of vegetation. The marshland holds on site as a buffer between housing and the airfield complex. One of the conclusions emerging from understanding the new development is the need for countryside. The first objective is to use agriculture to complete the suburban ideal as well as a connector between the seperate elements inherent to the landscape. As a result, the new bucolic countryside could be an opportunity to connect the settlements in the area together.


West Berlin

GATOW 52.474853, 13.138755

To conclude the analysis, one can say the Gatow area has been dislocated into disparate elements during the past century. The project will have to offer a comprehensive strategy tying the new development, the airfield, the marshland and the old village together, on both the visual and the social level. The intervention will enhance the existing character of all areas by introducing a structure in the marshland. A countryside park in which agriculture plays a dominating role.

The open space created by the airstrips and the marshland are the area’s main defining character. From the new housing scheme, one is surrounded by a wide open landscape punctuated by airport hangars. The direction of agriculture is a tool to emphasize distances between the existing elements. Paths will create a pedestrian and cycle network cutting through the flat open fields, linking the airfield, the new housing scheme and the village together. An addition of flower stripes through the agriculture will benefit the soil over time and add complexity to a horizontal landscape.


West Berlin

GATOW 52.474853, 13.138755

The flowers, planted in stripes throughout the new fields, were chosen for there beneficial properties for soil nutrient regeneration as well as there economic potential. All chosen species take over in crop rotation according to soil fertility. The potential also lies in the diversification of crops produced by the owner. Summer and winter crops were chosen corresponding to the normal agricultural habits, in line with sowing and harvesting times so as not to hinder the farmer’s usual activities. All plants were chosen to benefit the agriculture and the community. A system of beautification in which an everchanging lanscape of colour rotates year after year.


West Berlin

GATOW 52.474853, 13.138755

The objective is to create an agriculture of thin strips of colour, from which, at certain stand points, would appear to be equal in width. This was achieved through a careful manipulation of landform increasing soil drainage and adding high view points around the area. The challenge here was to have these strips be seen at ground level while taking up as little space as possible for minimum economic loss. At certain key view-points in the area, the stripes were sloped for the viewer to see a full range of horizontal colours.

GREENOCK 55.949850, -4.756447

May 1944 could be considered as Greenock’s second birthdate. As a city of considerable strategic importance for intelligence, marine transport and production & technology during World War II, Greenock city became one of three main targets in the UK for the German Luftwaffe to blitz. During that month, the Gourock, Greenock, Port Glasgow agglomeration suffered two night raids, killing 280 people and injured around 1200. In terms of material damage, 10.000 homes suffered some form of destruction, among them 1000 blanked out. The numbers would have risen if not for decoys placed uphill around the Lochs to deceive enemy bombers. After the War, a considerable amount of effort had to be done to restore the city to it’s pre-war industrial peak.


Inverclyde

GREENOCK 55.949850, -4.756447

With large expanses of waterfront flattened to accomodate heavy indsutry, and later on big box buisnesses, areas of the Clyde now suffer major stress from river and estuarine floods. Submerged, the vital regional infrastructures are blocked causing millions of pounds in damage. This event seem to have been one of the post-war planning legacies for the region. The initial factor is due to heavy rainfall. When this happens, Lochs over spill, the post-war housing developments can’t cope with overflow and parking lots lead large amounts of water straight to the Clyde estuary, creating a smooth slide from Ben to Clyde. The canalised river overspills into the estuary, submerging Greenock and other former industrial towns. This is an opportunity for Greenock to become a model for the region in flood prevention-based regeneration.


Inverclyde

GREENOCK 55.949850, -4.756447

There is great potential in flood absorption for cities such as Greenock. The large scale spaces left by post-war planning means that a great amount of poor quality space can be re-used for a more efficient water system throughout the entire agglomeration. The objective is to fit different water treatments, terraced throughout the city. This in turn changes the funnel effect into a watercan, spreading the water across Greenock, creating potential for regeneration. The legacy left by Mears can now be seen as potential rather than downfall. Reinstating water as temples and retrofiting treatment systems through minimal intervention.


Inverclyde

GREENOCK 55.949850, -4.756447

The new, comprehensive flood absorption system planned for Greenock can also form a link to the city’s former industrial past. With modernisation, an important infrastructure disppeared : the reservoirs and aquaducts running throughout the agglomeration from artificial Lochs to river. Used as fresh water for the people, as well as major cooling systems for the numerous sugar and shipbuilding buisnesses, water played a major role in Greenock. Massive artifical Lochs were dug uphill and open aquaducts ran throughout the city. The water retaining system will be in-line with this strong cultural heritage offering an image linked with Greenock’s glorious past. The objective is to restore the old reservoirs and spread the infrastructure throughout the city.

The masterplan will introduce a sustainable urban drainage system to the entire city. Precise small interventions run down the different areas of Greenock, creating opportunities for local public redevelopment. Stable green fingers from which to observe the ever changing state of Greenock city, a clear path witnessing the highly unpredictable developments fueled by economic drive. Four paths have been chosen according to the flooding areas. They also happen to end up at strategic points in the agglomeration where the waterfront is underdevelopped and has potential for completing the entire coastal walk from Gourock to Port Glasgow. Each water system strip will end at the water, creating possibilities for development and major nodes for cultural and social spaces.

LIMES LINE 51.961842, 5.344656

The Limes is the boundary of the former Roman Empire and was used from about 57 to 400 AD by the Romans. The border ran roughly from Lobith Netherlands to Katwijk, along the Rhine Valley. The Limes line was not only a military zone, but consisted of towers and castellas, signs of an important trade route. The Limes today leaves no physical trace. The need for an art installation will revive the Limes in the public mind of the Gelerdelanders. Along the Rhine were castellas on a regular spacing averaging 6.5 kilometers, or two hours march. Between them, the open holes in the defense border were guarded by watchtowers. Their separation was based on sight distance and was about 300 meters. The location of these towers were determined by breakpoints in the inner bend of the river. From these points one could best observe the catchment area of the Rhine.

LIMES LINE 51.961842, 5.344656

The influence of the Romans goes far beyond the physical remains of the Limes line . What the Romans brought us is not always tangible or visible, but their influence is noless. So are the inventions that they produced, turning out to be very important for our further development in the field of mathematics and physics. Till today the Limes miles is therefore not only a tribute to the wanderlust and the expansionism of the Romans but also to their mathematical knowledge applied functioning instruments. For Romans, no distance was too far, so they created an empire that is unparalleled. The Limes miles is a visual translation of the principle of the odometer to an object in the landscape. It is also a working instrument in order to measure distances. 16 rotations of the big wheel corresponds to the distance between two towers, 300 meters.

The Wilhelmina square is located in the centre of Leeuwarden. Hosper has been asked to create a layout for the public space of the square and its surroundings. The redevelopment of the Wilhelmina square, situated in between the station and the central shopping area, is the final piece of the project ‘Nieuw Zaailand’. The project consists of the new building for the Fries Museum, a façade of new buildings with shops and apartments and an expansion of the underground parking area. Through these interventions, the square becomes a more intimate space. In addition the Wilhelmina square will also become part of the pedestrian zone. All this provides many opportunities for enhancing the quality of the area and making the square a pleasant place to reside.

WILHELMINA 53.199703, 5.793697

The square will be used for the weekly market and is also suitable for large events such as concerts and the fair. The challenge was to accommodate all these various uses in a flexible way whilst retaining an intimate and pleasant atmosphere at the times when the square is not occupied by a specific use. This was the reason to introduce trees on the square. The trees contribute to the secure feeling and the pleasant atmosphere. Multi-stemmed maple trees (Acer saccharum) are sprinkled over the square and protected by large ‘tree benches’ of 2 x 5 meters, which also serve as seats and naturally arrange the weekly market.

There is no more political task than to erect a monument to the victims of war. When different countries try to respond to this task, they usually create a symbolic element in accordance to their policies in public space: acceptance of every individual of society. The task becoems difficult when the project must reconcile both parties in conflict during the war. For this reason, we propose an intervention in which a representative, figural or sculptural elements is reduced to it’s minimum. The monument forms as a public space with abstract attributes. The elements of nature are placed in the focus of the project surrounded by simple abstract elements. We propose an elevated space that represent in silence. The visitor is aware, due to the abstract nature of the monument, of the essential qualities represented by space itself.

The renovation of the Old Sugar Refinery building is one of the key projects that will rejuvenate this area of Ljubljana, which has been decaying for decades. Together with the Fabiani bridge and the new administrative center, this will form a new city center. With the renovation, this protected cultural monument will develop into a public center with attractions for all the demographic groups living in the city and the region. The basic goal of the project proposal is to remove all the interior walls and floor constructions. The analysis showed this is the only financially sustainable solution. The city can place a wide variety of programs and events within the ambitiously conceived 80 m long and 15 m tall public space.

The complex consists of three elements, the planar element (operational landscape) on the ground floor, the 150 m long programmed roof, floating above the volume of the garage and the 30 meter high tower. The planar element, so-called operational landscape, is a hiperfunctional organised parterre, with service entrances from the road at the west area and the area of intervention to the southern street. The programmed roof with a length of 150 m, parallel to the road represents an element that is adapted to the perception of drivers. The tower however is situated for a maximum exposure to every surrounding road. The beacon is made to become a lighthouse for the area at night.


The concrete pillars carry the wooden frames, releasing a bright span of 28 meters. The cleared open space allows the control centre personnel to have an oversight of the entire garage area. The team is free to allocate vehicles where ever is necessary and unhinder movement around the place.


Between the building’s three horizontal layers, we have established vertical links, gaps or openings. Through them, we enable fast access via the drop-down bars to the garage from any program to the intervention area.

THE ELEMENTS AND THE WHOLE The competition area of Delta is, in essence, cut off from its surroundings. In fact, it is only latently present on the mental map of the city. As such, it would have been straightforward to develop it as an island, to negate or disregard the surrounding conditions. In our view, this would be a missed opportunity and detrimental to the city of Rijeka. We are convinced that it is necessary to rediscover and upgrade the existing urban resources in the city and create interdependent connections. This strategy draws out the unique features of the city; it transforms it not only spatially but also symbolically, and reaffirms its identity through reinterpretation.


Rijeka

Delta 45.321971, 14.439121

The Porto Baroť is an important untapped resource, which can be developed separately from the rest of the project. The marina purposely lacks a drydock, as the drydock has no place in a central urban environment – fumes and dust from paint-stripping are wholly incompatible with any central part city, and the drydock must be planned at a remote location. The marina has approx. 340 berths in the Porto Baroť area and about 400 in the Mrtvi kanal. The existing warehouse is retrofitted into marina headquarters and, if there is leftover space, into high-quality seaside lofts. The space of the marina is entirely public, with access control only on the beginning of the piers. This way, the existing central market connects to the new park, and the public space of the marina, which provides additional generative potential to the old city.


Rijeka

Delta 45.321971, 14.439121

Korzo is the central public space of Rijeka but does not represent the coastal nature of the city. This cannot be ignored when designing the new public space of the park and the new development of Delta. By extending the existing Korzo and connecting it with the coast we provide a connecting element for the new development, a stage for all the public programmes, and a key revitalizing element for the Mrtvi kanal. The spatial gap of the New Korzo simultaneously acts as a spatial divider and programmatic connector, mirroring the old and the new development.

CENTRE 45.503408, 13.601538

The Piran municipality wanted a strategic solution to address the development challenges in Lucia centre. For more than a year, a coordination process between the municipality, the investors, the architects and the residents resulted in seven different arrangements for Centre Lucia. Weighing the pros and cons of the obtained solutions, the municipality has picked the solution most favorable to the residents: a large park composed of tree stripes in which only two low profile buildings reside. Unfortunatly, the joint investment between the port owners and the municipality has collapsed. The huge intervention for remodelling the city centre will have to be rephased according to realistic economic conditions.

KARTING PARK 56.003534, -2.516463

While waiting for new investment for the Lucija centre masterplan, the municipality has decided to start the construction on part of the park. The project is a low community park built around an old karting track. After a few community meetings, the program consists three elements: a rose garden, a running track and a fountain. With a low budget of 3e/m,2 the challenge is to unify the existing elements (track, playground, public toilets, parking, market), provide basic park facilities and answer the community’s wishes. The answer is to use the karting track as a programmatic belt, on which different activities will be enabled through the use of graphic design. The park revolves around this main asfalt promenade, along which, one passes through hillocks, tree formations, a foutain, a jogging track and places to play games.

As stated in the Architectural Review’s recent documentary on London’s waterways, the Thames and its tributaries present an enormous opportunity for London’s future growth. Many more associations such as the Wildlife Trust and the Canal & River Trust have underlined the importance of these waterways to the capitals sustainable regeneration. Regenerating the city’s lost or canalized waterways offers a creative opportunity for designers to rethink the relationship between urbanity and hydrology. New developments are the key to reinstate London’s historic relationship with water. The Southall Gas site is blessed with three of Thames’s major tributaries: the Grand Union Canal, the Yeading Brook and the River Crane. It is at the Minet Country Park where the two rivers meet to from the beginning of a green corridor flowing to- wards the heart of London. In addition, looking at the canal on a larger scale shows the variety of activities and program that it unlocks, ending at its most recent development in Padding- ton Basin. The masterplan aims to develop these semi-natural and manmade waterways for activities, education and sus- tainable processes.

The masterplan reinterprets the past for contemporary is- sues. Both reclaiming the waterways’ catchment areas and the gasworks’ canals and gasholders are reused to construct a sustainable BLUE/GREEN framework. BOG, as well as proving to have a romantic tooth, reinstates past elements for contem- porary functional and educational purposes. Both the gas- works and waterways will guide the structure and character of the site’s area. Therefore, the masterplan can be summarized in two main gestures: the flooding of the park and the horizon- tal strips of development.

The mixed-use scheme proposes a new commercial space of 246sq.m on the ground oor fronting onto Streatham Road. At ground and up to 5 storeys 36 new homes are proposed. The building steps down to 2 and 3 storeys in areas and the fth oor is articulated and set back in response to the surrounding context. In addition to this the proposal utilises the topography of the site to provide a partially sunken car park. Above this car park sits a raised communal terrace for use by the new residents. The design of the shared amenity space proposes a variety of high quality soft and hard landscaping.

The new park will be designed as a changing landscape, an image that doesn’t need to be preserved, a set of ever-changing performances, a platform for cultural interaction. The proposal is not a plan but an illustration of a scenario. It is not a design but a manifestation of the public’s needs. The success of each room will depend on its economic feasibility and benefit. The proposal does not rely on planned aesthetics but on the spontaneous encounter between the environment/room and the program. The 21st century park could consist of an ever-changing series of outdoor rooms that die out or survive according to the public’s liking. And while some environments will be kept for educative and ecological purposes, others will change dramatically according to market demands and successes.


15 Private and public funding enable higher levels of

management. New environments for the park will not only diversify the settings in which social and cultural activities can happen, but provide habitats for urban wildlife to thrive. The variety of decors facilitate further partnerships and scenarios. As an example, a fashion show and its runway could take place in the middle of a tropical garden.
