mipim/ar future project awards introduction

The mipim/architectural review Future project awards are now in their 10th year. Since their launch they have provided a snapshot of what architects and clients are contemplating in respect of commercial and residential proposals worldwide, and this year again provides a rich mix of approaches and ambitions. These awards are intended to celebrate the role of design quality in the creation of successful development, which includes the contribution made to the public realm as well as the quality of proposed buildings. The trend in favour of energy-saving, low-carbon buildings continues, and is a welcome sign of evolutionary change over the past decade. as chair of the 2012 awards jury, i would like to thank peter Stewart of architecture and planning consultancy pSCpa, and architect/developer roger Zogolovitch of Lake Estates, for their time in judging this year’s awards, and Sutherland Lyall for compiling the scheme descriptions. i hope you will visit our exhibition of the Future project entries, which can be found on the London stand, and enjoy the wide range of work on display.

GDKP, Istanbul, Turkey Gökhan AvcioĞlu and GAD Architecture For Istanbul Fatih Municipality This 22,061m2 proposal seeks to reinvent the bazaar, a fundamental component of Istanbul life and culture. It also investigates how its fundamental architectural forms may be combined and multiplied in new ways beginning with a simple structural grid, which is distorted and adapted to the exigencies of this particular site. The arch serves as the elemental form combined and multiplied to produce an unpredictably complex spatial organisation in which green terraces and semi-open spaces fill the void between stacked modules. The judges said, ‘The proposal takes its cue from local scale and character, and via a warped grid responds to context rather than importing a mall shopping model. It is a good example of what used to be called critical regionalism.’

The judges said, ‘This proposal deals with atypical postindustrial urban conditions and shows a skilful handling of architecture, landscape design and urban design related to water in a way that opens up the site for a pleasing range of uses.’ mipim / ar 2012 33

The judges commented: ‘This is an interesting way of breaking the normal office form, with a proposition that generates secondary uses such as gardens as the cut meets the core, and provides relief from the hermetically sealed tower.

Congratulations on the relaunch. I think it’s a really well-considered and wellexecuted move to reclaim authority for print. I enjoyed the longer pieces and the new format.

Steve Parnell, writer and academic, UK

Very, very interesting that the AR has invested in re-launching its print version rather than making the fashionable move online. I applaud you for this. Print journalism is an authoritative voice in this hubbub of noise and is inherently discerning in its choice of content. The authoritative tone of the AR perfectly complements itsdecision to re-engage with print. The contributions speak with conviction and draw fascinating conclusions. Long live authoritative print journalism!

Georgie Day, architecture student, UK

I would like to congratulate the AR on its editorial makeover, with its new focus on debate and theory.

Patrik Schumacher, Zaha Hadid Architects, UK

At last. Buildings photographed with people, theoretical considerations, post-occupancy evaluation, economic analysis, pedagogical teaching methods, sustainability, something to read and critiques at last. Architecture in its proper human and geographical context. Keep going.

I’m delighted to see the re-born AR! Halcyon days. I’ve just inherited a stack of 1930s ARs stylish beyond words and deliciously erudite. I’m looking forward to the AR regaining its proper place in the pantheon of gods.

This is a project to revitalise the decaying industrial zone of istanbul’s Kağithane Cendere Valley down the middle of which runs a river. it aims to preserve the existing low industrial density of occupancy yet also be compatible with an urban life while recognising that this is one of the city’s important ecological corridors. The bitty existing development is replaced by a long riverine arcade unifying ground floor commercial units facing the main road behind but allowing permeability between urban and riverside life. The judges noted approvingly: ‘This is a comprehensive approach to industrial redundancy via a significant sectional intervention which brings new and varied life to a neglected city artery. Low-grade uses have been transformed into higher value uses on either side of the river.’

This project for Siemens’ 20,000m2 HQ at masdar City, abu Dhabi, has been designed to maximise efficiency and build more with less – and to achieve a high LEED platinum rating. The building envelope was conceived as a box within an inner highly-insulated, airtight box: the facade is designed to reduce thermal conductivity with a lightweight aluminium external shading system. Office floorplates of 4500m2 are punctuated by nine atria, served by six perimeter cores and are completely column-free. The judges said, ‘This is a thorough investigation of the design of large floorplate space in an extreme climate, with a well explained proposition emerging. The ambition for a LEED platinum rating means the project will be followed by many designers and clients with great interest.’

This 29,000m2 multistorey office building in the main business district of istanbul, is a rectilinear office block planned on a 8.25m square grid enveloped by a free-form glazing system designed to enrich the quality of the typical office space with vertical gardens. The envelope acts as a secondary undulating facade to south and west where it is detached from the building to create an imposing vertical garden that acts as a buffer zone.

Oxford physics has now consolidated its previously disparate functions, notably the Experimental and Theoretical physics departments, on a single site. The building form is highly constrained by existing buildings, trees and height restrictions, so two laboratory floors are underground with, above, four floors of office-like perimeter accommodation. in the middle is a vertical space with fluid openings and spatial linkages.

The result of a competition, this 29-storey office tower eschews fashionable glazing in favour of a sun control skin which is the outcome of wind and sun exposure studies. it consists of horizontal sun breakers and four types of panels, distributed on the four facades to respond to their differing orientations. The designers talk about a ‘woven facade’. The building’s ground floor houses restaurants, coffee shop and bookstore.

One of these two buildings takes the form of a slab tower more than 90m high. The other takes the form of a cluster of attached towers, in plan stepped, in elevation each given different facade treatment to give the impression that this big office building is actually eight towers and of much smaller scale. The facade allows both mixed mode and full natural ventilation giving the occupants control over their internal environment. mipim / ar 2012 63

This scheme reads as a collection of stacked boxes of differing sizes aligned to face north and south and rising up to nine levels. One of the main influences on the design of this building is that ambient temperatures can rise to 40°C. This means that the north ends of office boxes are glazed and the south, sun-facing elevations face over a deep atrium which is shaded by perforated jali screens cut in traditional patterns.

This six-storey private residence on a narrow, sloping site sits over a podium with swimming pool and garden. Zoned internally to provide secluded spaces, the architectural language is formal. The facade is visually controlled by a 1.5m module with cladding in light bronze anodised aluminium panels and doubleglazed insulated panels with low-E coated low iron glass plus diffusing and protective timber strips in appropriate places.

There are 71 houses and flats, half of them affordable with half maisonettes, half terraces in this 0.6ha development downstream from the centre of Newcastle. Each house is different, each open space has individual character in terms of slope, sense of enclosure and vistas. Terraces run up and down the contours rather than along them, creating a drama of inclined streets although pedestrian paths run through the project along the contours.

This is a two-storey family residence of 819m2 on a triangular 1475m2 plot. The unusual plot shape suggested explorations of geometrical forms, notably the trapezium and especially for the roofs which, the architect argued, could be considered separately from the house plan because local sun and rainfall demanded extensive shelter. Burmese teak and the darker Chengai woods are used extensively, especially for sun screens.

Plus energy PreFab house, PiŁa, Poland Wojtasik PraCoWnia arChitektoniCzna For esC sP z.o.o. PiŁa This prototype of a 177m2 prefab system for low-cost single-family housing uses wind power harvested by photovoltaic wings, rather than windmills with harvested energy stored underground. Concrete foundations, wall and floor panels are heavily insulated and a structurally and thermally independent steel exoskeleton carries all the sustainable technology including external blinds and insulated screens. The judges said ‘This is an intriguing proposal which combines technology, manufacture and architecture as an integrated whole. The sensible (structure on the inside, insulation on the outside) is matched by advanced conceptual ideas.’

aMagerForbrænding Waste to energy Plant, CoPenhagen, denMark bjarke ingels grouP (big) For aMagerForbrænding Copenhagen wanted a new facade for its unloved rubbish-powered electricity plant building. BiG decided that added functionality was also needed and produced this proposal for a scheme for the whole area as a 90,000m2 city destination for challenging sports including go-karting, rock climbing, sailing and, the main feature of the scheme, skiing down an ecological, meandering slope based on the waste plant’s roof raised at one end by 10m. The building’s smokestack is modified to puff smoke rings whenever 1 tonne of fossil CO2 is released.
