LIBRARY AND ART GALLERY

The site is situated between the main railway station “North Station� (Gara de Nord) and city centre, adjoined from the west to the north with the Politehnica University of Bucharest,an old maternity hospital, Polizu, and Generali office building, and on the south and east with an area of houses. The project is a connection for surrounding elements, creating a link between the two distinctive neighbourhoods and fulfills four main functions: a public library with the main entrance next to the Politehnica University of Bucharest , a commercial art gallery along Calea Grivitei, which has a special work place on the upper level that can be rented and used by different artist. The last space is connected to an exhibition room, where the artists expose their creations and it can be accessed by visitors through a large stair as a direct connection with the exterior. The pedestrian road acts as a shortcut through the site, and its link with the interior courtyard of the building is announced by the exhibition space which is treated in a totally different aesthetic language from the rest of building. The material choice for the exterior of the building is Limestone and for the exhibition space, a frosted glass double skin facade is used. The entry experience is designed to create a tranquil environment for visitors. The materials provide a serene environment: transparent glass, oak wood battens for the ceiling, a walnut staircase, concrete and limestone.

MULTIPURPOSE SPORTSHALL

The location of the multipurpose sport hall is in the north side of the city, in an area surround by different other sport centres, and has a capacity of 6000 spectators. The main access is from the Barbu Vacarescu street, through the stairs and the big platform which is above the ground at 4.5m and leads directly inside the sport hall lobby where the wardrobes and mini bars are. The ground floor has the rest of the access, meaning that the sport teams have a separate access on the back, with bus parking close nearby. Opposite of them, under the platform, is a parking lot and access for the VIP, next to those are located the rest of the access for media, press, workers, for the restaurant etc. There are two special access points for the ambulance, and one for the fire brigade. There are four locker rooms for the sport teams, 3 for coaches, 3 for the referees. Two spaces for training, provide with force rooms, sauna etc. The structure of the roof it is made out of metal girders (which are formed using the principles of the spatial truss system). All of the girders are stiffened with diagonal bracing. The cover of the façade it’s a translucent type of polymer, ethylene-tetraflourehtylene – ETFE. The covering is made in such manner that it can provide diffuse natural light directly into the sport hall.

‘FASTE BATTERI’ - CULTURAL CENTER

The site is located in the northern district of Amager West( Amager Vest) , in the southern area of Copenhagen and can be described as a “no man’s land” that resulted from the evolution of the urban tissue in the immediate neighborhood. It can become a link between several areas that have a high degree of importance both historically, urban, architectural and also social, cultural, administrative. On the east part of the site, the existence of an old shooting battery, Faste Batteri, is declared as monument worth preserving. We have to speculate the temporal quality of the project due to constant changes in the demographic composition of minorities. Constant evaluation is necessary to determine the social commonalities that can serve as a binder in a multicultural community. The main theme of the project was formed after understanding the functional aspects of Copenhagen, presenting contextual situation and determining key points of the intervention by following its political, administrative, social and cultural development. . The project support will be achieved by demonstrating its effectiveness and social functional level but also in terms of the contribution to the overall image of the city. The new requirements, especially of the young are represented by key words like interdisciplinary overlap, continuity, versatility, synergy, openness and visibility. In Copenhagen, the study of life in public space has become’’ a key planning tool that makes it possible for politicians and urban planners to have information about how the city changes and how it can be improved.’’ By creating a multifunctional and multicultural city that meets people’s needs, the project develops a flexible space that promotes cultural and sports activities. The building has a direct relationship with the exterior public space, favoring the development of events and recreational activities and the opportunity to observe archaeological monuments, Fast Batteri, nearby.

CARETAKING HOMES IN KVERNALAND

Despite the need for care, many people wish to remain in their own home during treatment. When planning a care facility for a diverse demographic of residents (elderly and youth), it was vital to maintain the close, intimate and local familiarity of the home. The design drew inspiration from the surrounding built and natural scale and their characteristic pitched roofs, which evoke nostalgic associations of the home. It was also essential that the design optimized space and enabled efficient and secure day to day functionality for staff and residents. By orientating the common and the children house in a north west direction, the buildings will open in south west to the lake and the town centre, and east to the adjacent landscape. The main building is made out of six residential arms that form the basis of a rational and clear organization. In this way we create a sheltered outdoor niches between the buildings that open towards the surrounding landscape. To break down the building to a local and familiar scale, the residential arms are shifted to form series of varied and exciting indoor and outdoor spatial sequences. The traditional pitched roof typology of the area inspired the roof design. The scheme proposes to divide the roof surface into a series of smaller pitches which orientate in alternate directions. Separated from the main common house is the children house, which has the same orientation, position and pitched roof. This variation and rhythm creates an intimate and varied residential environment and harmony with the surrounding buildings. Separated from the main common house is the children house, which has the same orientation, position and pitched roofs. On the first phase of the project, only a part of the common house and the children house will be built. The rest of it would develop on the next future stage

BETWEEN BOOKS AND TREES

Between books and trees is an imaginative environment that dissolves the boundary between park and library. By minimizing the formal language of its architecture, the new Daegu Gosan Public Library can capture the textures of the existing trees and the books within to create a cohesive experience that celebrates both. The existing site is defined by a wide park strip that protects the future library from the nearby traffic of a growing cityscape. The special quality of a green space within a dense city provides an opportunity for the library to take on a special meaning. We propose to merge the spatial qualities of the trees and the potential of the library into one cohesive identity. The library will merge the exterior and interior through a series of spatial transitions within an inclusive environment for the local community. The library floats among a forest of columns that extends this transition. Trees and columns blur the boundary between interior and exterior with a delicate play of light and reflections. The entire ground floor is open to the exterior park, maximizing the potential for events outside the library like book markets, parades, or outdoor exhibitions beneath a canopy of trees and roof. The library’s cantilevering floors shade each other, allowing significant transparency that lets the library’s books become part of the facade’s expression. The glass facade is the minimal boundary between the two, framing a profound connection that defines the experience of the library.The interior environment is defined by the special quality of the library’s book collection. The plan is organized around the void. Desk spaces frame the perimeter of the central atrium, leaving room for large, flexible areas on each floor to accommodate a variety of shelf configurationsas the library meets its changing needs. Group rooms are arranged on opposite sides of the plan to accommodate a variety of uses beyond the central reading space. The library’s structure enables a transparency and lets the park define interior spaces of the library.The library is vertically organized to create a spatial variety that resonates with the spaces shaped by the exterior trees.

___30


TREES AND BUILDING We propose a minimal architectural gesture that has a building footprint that increases in size as it moves upwards. The building shape adjusts to the surrounding trees, which is a green quality that we believe is worth protecting in any dense urban environment.

FACADE OF BOOKS The shelf shading structure allows the books to become a part of the facade, which lets the textures of the books and trees create a poetic relationship that celebrates both.

BOOK ATRIUM

PUBLIC SPACE

In the heart of the library is the atrium, which is framed by thousands of books. The simple beauty of the book texture creates a timeless visual and spatial quality that articulate the library as a special place for learning and knowledge sharing.

The cantilevering volume and the slender columns creates a covered public space, which dissolves the boundary between the interior and exterior space that creates a space that allow the library’s activity to spill out and public life ow in.

WOOD IN CONSTRUCTION AND ARCHITECTURE

The task was simply to build a sauna in time, with certain restrictions. The starting point for the sauna was 2.1x2.1x2.1 cube LVL(laminated veneer) panel. Most importantly,the final product was made in wood and fit into a truck to be transported to Lahti, some 100 km from Helsinki. The sauna box is elevated by 1.3 m on columnial support, offerin unexpected views to the surroundins, breaking the traditional relationship between sauna and groud. Thesauna walking platform is 1.97 m above ground, trapping hot air in the sauna box, and allowing airflow from below The interior benches,along with the platform,are suspended within the box. Visitors access the sauna from below by a vertical ladder The structural columns take advantage of the strength of the box,keeping a minimal appearance The exterior cladding protects the box from sun and rain, while maintaining a rhythm and amplifying the floating box The exterior benches are movable, functioning as both seat and table
