The Hetropia UIA Competition l Honorable Mention Program : Park in an extreme weather area Location : Bering Strait, USA & Russia Group Work : Hyo Young Park / Sung Jun Bae Jung Jae Park / Jae Won Huh

This project is about constructing a bridge park to connect two islands which are placed in an extreme weather in Bering Strait. Since the weather condition is difficult for construction, all the pieces will be prefabricated and just be connected on the site. The facade will have a frosty layer so the skin will be covered with ice and work as an ‘Igloo’ to bring comfort area to the site.

Stands for Healing Archiprix l Participants Favorite Program : Park in an extreme weather area Location : DMZ, Korea Group Work : Hyung Jin Choi / Kyung Jae Yu

DMZ, is a relic of the war that human’s rationality full of egoism had created, and over 50 years, no single person was able to enter the zone. In the mean time, animals overcame the chaos and settled inside the zone. A new symbiotic relationship between human and animals, would act as information that could revitalize human’s barren state of mind. The element becomes placed in the landscape basically respecting the natural topography. Accordingly, the animals would recognize the element as a natural object. Lastly, people would feel the reflection of the past and the impression of the great Mother Nature while they realize themselves as part of it.

Taiwan Tower Competition at Schwartz Architects Program : Observation Tower Location : Tai Chung City, Taiwan Internwork at Schwartz Architects

The 518-meter-tall Taiwan Tower (TT518) is an innovative new landmark for Taiwan and Taichung City. Located at the site of the former Taichung (Shuinan) Airport, the new Taiwan Tower (TT518) will become the most important new development in the country. Incorporating a range of programs, this new international cultural destination will bring pride to the people of Taichung and Taiwan. The aesthetic, form and structure of TT518 are modern and cutting-edge. As the most visible and recognizable structure within the country’s skyline, TT518 will position Taichung as a leading world class city. The iconic design integrates a large public plaza and parkspace with a number of elevated programs contained within the TT518 tower structure: the Museum of Taichung City Development, restaurants and cafes, conference facilities, a telecommunications center, and environmental monitoring station, observation areas including the open-air SkyDeck and the funicular SkyRide.
