PLEASE ALLOW ME TO INTRODUCE MYSELF

Ruud van Gool, born in 1987, educated at the Technical University of Eindhoven, the Netherlands, of which I graduated cum laude in Architecture, Building and Planning in March 2014 with my graduation project A Bijlmer Experience which was selected for the Archiprix 2014. Throughout my work, studies and extracurricular activities I have been working on a broad range of scales and typologies in urban contexts. I consider myself a contextual architect, researching, deriving and designing from the physical spatial, and the non-physical social, economic, political and theoretical context. This context of spatial conditions and non-spatial interests then provides the tools with which a spatial intervention can be

designed to serve private and public interests. I am also a thorough conceptual designer, I meticuously research and test a concept on the range of scales present to come to a spatially coherent proposition on all scales. My projects which show this approach are for example A Bijlmer Experience, a proposition which connects and redefines the Bijlmermeer neighbourhood with a series of coherent spatial, social and functional interventions. Or the competition winning entry MĂźnchen FĂźrstenried at LIN architects urbanists which is a coherent urban and architectural proposal from the scale of the detail and material to the urban interventions, programming and landscape. This portfolio is a selection of projects to show this approach.

G Our proposal focussed on working further on the existing qualities of the urban scheme and landscape. We propose a concentrated redensification through going as high as contextually possible with the new buildings and maximally utilising the possibility of the extention of existing buildings, and re-establishing a programmatical and spatial connection to the neighbourhood road through locating commu-

nal programme there and programming the landscape from “suburban” at the street to “leisure” towards the green areas surrounding the site. All new buildings are to be constructed out of a wooden structure (up to 16 stories high, quite unique in Germany), aluminium facade and continuous balcony, giving the facade a horizontal appearance. Typologically the apartments are organised concentrially in the new buildings, and parallel in the extentions; a constructive core with circulation space, a service-core with entrance, bathrooms and kitchen in the bigger typologies, a “living-cupboard” with kitchen for the smaller typologies and finally the living and sleeping spaces towards the facade and balcony and loggia.

O IN The brief of this competition was to redensify the modernistic München-Fürstenwald housing area through partially new construction and partially extention of the existing housing stock with a mixed programme of mainly housing, daycares, local retail and a neighbourhood center totalling around 60.000m2 and to rethink the existing (parking)infrastructure and abundant green spaces.

For my Master’s graduation project I proposed a new, aesthetic way of experiencing the Bijlmermeer by the development of a cinematic route as a cohesive spatial and programmatic element along which I designed a motel, a daycare and a nightclub. The location of the Bijlmermeer is the largest Modernistic development in the Netherlands, which is situated to the southeast of Amsterdam that, like many similar Modernistic plans, had become a ghetto in the ‘80s. In 1992 a large-scale renewal plan was drafted in which more then 50% of the original ten story honeycomb flats was to be demolished and replaced by smaller scale housing Due to this renewal plan the original spatial structure of the Bijlmer has been lost, and I use the new spatial elements to propose a new way of spatially structuring the Bijlmer by embracing its pluriform manifestation as a starting point.

AR LEC CH TIO IPR N IX 20 14

The modernistic grid infrastructure, which was one of the original spatial cohering elements, is now used to bind the different spatial urban fragments by creating a route along which these fragments can be experienced. First, the route is strengthened by creating a continuous spatial element by extending the existing rows of trees Second, the scenes are strengthened by specifically applying these trees per scene in various landscaping methods. Third, the borders of the scenes are strengthened by making interventions which alter the perception of the motorist, and thus makes him more aware of his surroundings. These infrastructural or architectural interventions then provide an interaction point between the motorist and the pedestrian by the program and by extending the spatial experience into the drive-on motel, the drive-in daycare and drive-by club.

The awkward shape of the site and proposed density and close proximity of the housing and office programme dictated the development of the building shape; a compact office box and a twisted housing parallelogram on a plinth which was derived from the context of adjacent buildings. This fatter plinth was then to house the public functions and social housing, whilst the slim tower containes the apartments for the free-market. The two volumes are joined by a bridge making them essestially one building, to comply with proximity laws.

EURONANTES HOUSING, LOT 3G NANTES

The floorplans were conceived to be very flexible in terms of organisation for the offices, and of living quality for the apartments. Four typologies; “Ring”, “Wintergarden”, “Patio” and “Skybox” were developed with a large emphasis on the relationship of the apartment with the terraces making it an integral extention of the living experience. These typologies were then stacked onto each other, creating a developing volume and facade behind the continuous horizontal slabs and vertical columns. The facade was also conceived as stacked in the horizontal sense, with different elements placed consecutively softening the abrupt change of the typologies behind. The facade of the office uses the same elements; horizontal slabs, moveable sunshading and vertical columns and glass facade to create an architectonic harmony between them.

THE WHEAT LABYRINTH ‘S HERTOGENBOSCH

The main design philosophy is to create, by minimal interventions, conditions for developments by using the specific spatial qualities of the De Heus grounds and its factory buildings.

Secondly, we connect this route with the factory ensemble by the creation of the Wheat Labyrinth, a route through the factory buildings along the path of the former production process. Hereby connecting the spatial and functional potentiality of the array of spaces inside the factory. This will be a path of urban exploring, unconsciously making the visitor aware of the history of the terrain. This history and spatial quality will also be displayed outward, by strategically stripping the hull of silos, showing the history of the site.

Firstly we, connect the factory grounds with the city centre by elonging a possible recreation route along the Binnendieze canal along the embankments of the factory grounds. This is done by connecting the Binnendiezebrug with pedastrian stairs to the city centre and the factory grounds.

Thirdly, these spaces will then inhabited by an array of functions which can use the now accessable spatial qualities of the factories. These functions, cultural, commercial or recreational will add a functional liveliness to the area making the De Heus grounds a unique experience.

For the BAI 2014, an open design competition organised by stakeholders and the Bossche Architecture Institute, the brief was to come up with ideas to revitalise the, recently opened for the public, former wheat processing factory terrain of “De Heus” in de province of Noord-Brabant capitol Den Bosch.

Strategically stripping the faรงades to show the history and former function of the wheat factory, in this case the silos.

On the left the scaffolding stairs to connect the lavender recreational route along the Binnendieze with the inner city and the factory grounds and on the right the scaffolding stairs connecting the fuchsia internal wheat labyrinth with the earlier mentioned recreational route are shown.

MACHBARKEITSSTUDIE ERWEITERUNG WIEN MUSEUM WIEN KUEHN MALVEZZI

This study, which I contributed to during my internship at Kuehn Malvezzi Architekten in Berlin, had the aim to investigate the possibilities of an extention of the Wien Museum, the city history museum of Vienna on the historic, planologically and politically difficult Karlsplatz location. The existing Wien Museum was designed by the Wiener architect Oswald Haerdtl, and the only twentieth century museumbuilding of Vienna, showcasing an architectonic aesthetic unusual to the city. With the monumental Karlskirche as the determining factor, urban conditions to which the extention should

comply were formulated and a range of urban forms and scales related to the volume of the requested programmatic additions were investigated and tested with models. This led to three different proposals of possible extentions: Haerdtl 2, Solitär and Plateau, which were elaborated with impressions, programmatic plans and calculations and urban schemes. The Plateau proposal was favoured by the municipal board and will be used as the blueprint for a future competition.

SUMMERHOTEL / STUDENTHOUSING ROTTERDAM

For this multidisciplinary project we designed a building that is fully a hotel in summer and for the greater part student housing in the rest of the seasons, accompanied by a range of added functions. The location is the Rotterdam Schouwburgplein, for which we too made a new square design. The discipline I was responsible for was that of Architecture and Context. The building is to be described as a a plinth reacting to conditions on ground level and a wide tower reacting to conditions on the highrise level, resulting in the characteristic jump in directions of plinth and tower. The atrium crossed with communal floors, which serves a social and climatic purpose, and the vides visible in the façade are distinct features.

Besides the general design I personally worked out the plans and façades for the plinth.The result was a very interlocked and related plan that let different functions profit from each other and their surroundings. I designed a very horizontal façade, to be in contrast with the vertical tower. This horizontality was to be felt in the material (brick), window framing and the direction of openings. Also, to contrast with the lighter, “floating” tower, I used dark-antracite brickwork to stress its connection to the ground.

ILOT DE L’’OCTROI HOUSING RENNES

The ‘‘Ilot d’Octroi” proposal was for an international competition on the edge of the centre of Rennes in west-France. The brief asked for the construction of 136 free-market and social housing units on a south facing, previously low density site on the meeting point of the river Vilaine and stream Ile with large qualities and possibilities of the existing landscape. The plots themselves paired with the high density programme proved challenging, because the existing theatre “Bacchus” and some historical houses were to be left intact. Our design proposes a family of four polygonal buildings in a terraced continuous landscape flowing which connects the city with the water. The landscape itself is a continuation of the type that is already found on the riverbank

LIN architects urbanists

The buildings decrease in height towards the riverbank, and in themselves decline towards the top, creating large terraces and an exiting play of volumes between them. The two types, a hexagonal “long” type with staircase towards the facade, and a pentagonal “fat” type with internal atrium with staircase are shaped by the constraints of the site and regulation, offering different types of quality of circulation space. The buildings are enveloped by a “cocoon” containing the private continuous balconies and terraces. The facade of this cocoon is clad with different types of panels that react to the climatic conditions (sun, wind, noise) of the location of the appartment, thereby ensuring maximum pleasurable use of the outside space and connection of the interior with the exterior.
