    Insieme al vecchio faro, il Met è l’ultimo avamposto sul nuovo lungomare di Marina di Ragusa. Dopo la demolizione dell’attiguo edificio, costituisce l’unico costruito al centro di due vuoti urbani: da una parte P.zza Dogana e dall’altra Piazza Torre, realizzata sul sedime dell’ex Camperia (antico magazzino). La richiesta della committenza è la trasformazione dell’edificio da residenziale a commerciale (bar-ristorante) e la chiusura a veranda del terrazzo.

    Studio GUM, Valentina Giampiccolo, Giuseppe Minaldi — Met

    In origine la fabbrica presenta dei tre prospetti liberi due risolti e uno cieco (p.zza Torre), con travi e pilastri in c.a. a vista. Questa dualità permane nel progetto. Il prospetto su p.zza Dogana, ben noto negli anni agli abitanti del luogo, è cristallizzato e mantiene i connotati stilistici e le bucature anche laddove non servono più. Il prospetto su Piazza Torre è pensato invece come estensione verticale della piazza, per sopperire alle sue mancanze (verde, arredo urbano, punti di aggregazione); spazio fruibile e trasformabile, cornice per esposizioni temporanee all’aperto. Partendo dalla maglia strutturale di travi e pilastri si genera un reticolo, che acquisisce tridimensionalità in prossimità della veranda. Nei punti del reticolo ottenuti dall’intersezione delle ortogonali, è posto un modulo che accoglie il sistema d’illuminazione della facciata e diventa supporto per possibili installazioni.

    Studio GUM, Valentina Giampiccolo, Giuseppe Minaldi — Met

    Il non finito iniziale della facciata permane e genera infinite risoluzioni. Anche gli interni subiscono il processo di riduzione alla struttura portante. Al piano terra i blocchi funzionali sono come monoliti lasciati dal mare. Il cubo di ferro che accoglie i bagni è ossidato all’esterno(ferro nero) e perlescente all’interno(alluminio). Dalla scala al piano superiore una patina turchese riveste il tutto e crea una sensazione di sospensione propria del galleggiare nel mare, che di questo spazio è la quarta parete.

    This was a remodel project for an existing restaurant establishment. Our client desired something “joyful and laid back” as he thought the existing ambiance was a bit austere, dark and pretentious. In addition to being excited about this challenge, we were equally inspired by Paola Carosella, restaurant owner and chef, whose personality was extroverted, restless, lively and goal driven. Overall, the two most challenging aspect of the project were to go through the project without having to temporarily close the restaurant and dealing with a limited budget. In terms of design, there was a complete fusion between landscape and architecture, as they were physically overlayed in a few ambiances. Over the existing blank facade we installed a steel tube grid meant to be tangled in vines that referenced back to the existing volumes and voids in a very simple and harmonious way. This same overlay was repeated on the narrow garden-like seating area, unifying internal and external solutions. This subtle touch of green was able to lighten and cheer up the new looking restaurant. On the inside, we removed the dark wood cladding, exposing the white walls and installed large mirror panes; we replaced the upholstery for a colorful fabric with an exuberant pattern and replaced the chairs for light and transparent wicker chairs. The restaurant and waiting/bar area were equally considered. In the waiting area, we included armchairs and individual tables in a laid back and distinct environment. We focused on a conscious and responsible approach, with no waste or rubble while trying not to disrupt the restaurant’s routine: we also intended on delivering pleasant aesthetics and practicality.

  • 08/03/15--00:43: House at Neil Road - ONG&ONG
  • Located within a conservation district, this home celebrates the traditional charm of Peranakan shophouses with the addition of new spaces that are sensitive to the building’s rich heritage.

    ONG&ONG — House at Neil Road

    Akin to traditional shophouses, the spaces are interspersed with courtyards that serve as visual focal points. The original courtyard – with its preserved ornate fish mould centerpiece and accompanying water feature – forms the heart of the common areas while a newer courtyard marks the transition from the old structure into its new extension. A young tree in the centre of this new courtyard adds a touch of nature to the urban ensemble. To the rear of the house are the kitchen and a retro spiral staircase that leads to the second floor master bedroom and rooftop terrace.

    ONG&ONG — House at Neil Road

    Many original elements were retained as well as restored, such as the timber flooring, doorframes, window shutters and iron gates. Clay bricks were also recycled and incorporated into a partition wall as salvaged glazed tiles were put to use in the bathrooms. Even the blue paint for the walls was restored to a more authentic tone by using mineral silicate, while a pigmented grouting mixture helped to recreate the five-foot way’s red cement flooring.

    ONG&ONG — House at Neil Road

    Interestingly, the forecourt’s boundary wall displays a similar progression from old to new, with its paint-stripped bricks revealing layers of the shophouse’s history. The bathroom floors were also given a terrazzo finish as a nod to the age-old craft that is fast dying out.

    ONG&ONG — House at Neil Road

    With its blending of old and new elements, this house not only preserves a unique cultural heritage, but also acts as a storytelling device that narrates the histories of its past and present occupants.

    For us, it is very important to design attending to the character of the building through its physical presence and to communicate clearly the use of the building working with its image. Looking at the work of German photographers Bernrd and Hilla Becher, we can appreciate the beauty of the industrial structures that in part is because its forms and the relations of its elements are the result of the pertinence in use. In other words, they are beautiful because of the sincerity of its forms and none of its elements were added for aesthetical or decorative purpose.

    ATELIER ARSº— Levering Trade

    Facade 2

    We wanted to propose a building that was able to communicate its industrial condition through the architectural elements. So we recalled a couple of forms that is possible to recognize as classics in industrial architecture: the saw tooth roof and the vierendeel beam. The work of Albert Kahn is a very relevant example of the particular beauty of industrial architecture through a tectonic expression.

    ATELIER ARSº— Levering Trade

    Facade

    Our project sets up a tectonic system of saw tooth roofs and vierendeel beams whose repetition along the facade make possible the character of the building itself and establishes a formal relation with a set of silos located a few meters from the plot. Variations in that system allow manifesting in the façade, the different conditions and requirements of the inner space of the building, such as warehouse, private offices, meeting rooms and other spaces. It is very important to understand that this building was constructed with a very low budget and that is the reason for the materials used in it.

    ATELIER ARSº— Levering Trade

    Roof

    In the corner of the building we can observe a major variation in the tectonic system; the direction of the roof has changed to manifest the new relation with the side street where the entrance is located. Otherwise the slope of the roof could be seen from the street.

    ATELIER ARSº— Levering Trade

    Corner

    A steel lattice work was proposed to reduce solar radiation and also to protect the windows from possible vandalism due the marginal conditions of the zone at night.

    ATELIER ARSº— Levering Trade

    Facade detail

    The inner work space is described as a double height ward, limited by OSB panel walls that add a friendly atmosphere at low cost, and also maintaining the industrial character. It is possible to find craft workers on the streets of Guadalajara, weaving objects on request with different materials like plastic threads and many natural fibers. We wanted to add to the building a craftwork sample, so we decided to hire a team of weavers to work with the handrails, weaving its gaps with palm leaves.

    ATELIER ARSº— Levering Trade

    Interior

    We verified the effectiveness of the saw tooth roof observing the quality of natural lighting in the warehouse space, just by using a conventional translucent plastic sheet as a lid on the Vierendeel beams.

    A Mute Exterior A building that sits in mute repose, like an impassive signpost. In seeking to realize such a building, which becomes part of the scenery around it, acting as part of the backdrop for passers-by, I felt that I needed to create an exterior that was distinct from the standard architectural lexicon.

    ARTechnic / Kotaro Ide — BREEZE

    Once you slip through the entrance that recalls a crevice to a secret rock cave and pass through the dimly lit interior void, suddenly you are presented with an open space that is in total contrast to the confines of what you have just experienced. The effect is to create a space like a private beach, enclosed by a soaring rock face. My concept was to create a space that would provide a bolt-hole for personal rest and relaxation, while still being able to benefit from the convenience of the city center—an ideal private spot in the heart of the city.

    ARTechnic / Kotaro Ide — BREEZE

    Although the house is located in a quiet residential area on a vacant lot next to the former home of one of the notable prime ministers of 20th century Japan, it sits on a 5.5m wide frontal road that is a well-used side road, with a stream of cars and people passing by in the morning and evening. In this location, the single largest challenge was to consider how to achieve a building that would continue to maintain its appeal and superiority as a high-end rental property. Buffering walls were created on the two sides that fronted onto this main access road, with the gaps between the buffering wall serving as the entrance to each of the unit. Once inside the houses, the south-facing side features an expansive open area, which provides a light and airy living space.

    ARTechnic / Kotaro Ide — BREEZE

    The buffering wall is creating a rational cross-section. The wall on the north side is constructed so as to allow for ground-level parking space, while also widening out to provide extra space in front of the second-storey entrances. The east side features a triple-legged stairwell with single passage space on the lower floor that also widens out to a double passage space on the upper floor.

    ARTechnic / Kotaro Ide — BREEZE

    I decided on the current layout after considering the most efficient configuration for each residential unit based on the building plot, which is long from east to west and short from south to north, which fronts on to the road on the north side. My idea was that a terrace house style would be the most efficient given the specifications of the building plot. I thought that a terrace house structure would be a comfortable and appealing option. I sought to concentrate on bringing out the commercial appeal of the luxury of space created by a terrace house configuration.

    ARTechnic / Kotaro Ide — BREEZE

    Once I had settled on a multiple-storied terrace house design, from the perspective of commercial appeal I decided to have entrances only on the first and second floors for the units, which ultimately led to a lay-out of first-floor flats, with duplex maisonettes taking up the second and third floors. As the appeal and comfort of the duplex maisonettes was self-evident, I concentrated on boosting the appeal of the first-floor flats. My solution was to place a green roof terrace of the second-floor at a slant, in order to open up the south-facing section of the first-floor apartments, ensuring a large and airy space.

    ARTechnic / Kotaro Ide — BREEZE

    In order to ensure that there was no need to place the bedroom windows on the road-facing north wall, which also looks over the parking area, I designed slits between each unit that act as light courts. As all the individual rooms face these light courts, this ensures that they all have their own private exterior aspect.

    ARTechnic / Kotaro Ide — BREEZE

    This project was one that I developed independently, from the decision on the location itself through to planning. The specifications of the building were also selected with total life cycle costs in mind.

    ARTechnic / Kotaro Ide — BREEZE

    While selecting a finish that would be maintenance-free to the greatest degree possible, I made the bold decision to use an exterior insulation and finishing system (which is coated on to the exterior wall) in order to retouch the exterior easily at predetermined periods during the building life-cycle as a means of keeping these rental units looking fresh and appealing.

    ARTechnic / Kotaro Ide — BREEZE

    Heating environment The quest for comfort is the same as the quest for commercial appeal. In terms of the heating environment, it is a tough call to realize comfort and energy efficiency together. To achieve both of these goals required that the thermal heat capacity of the external insulation be used to maximum effect with a heating/cooling system which utilizes the under-floor chamber. By utilizing the radiant heating/cooling effect of the floor together with high efficiency equipment it proved possible to both exceed next-generation energy efficiency standards while also ensuring a luxurious and comfortable environment. By adding humidifying/de-humidifying and air-cleaning functions to the total heat exchange equipment, an almost perfect air-conditioning system has been achieved.

  • 08/02/15--20:28: Tinman House - Junsekino
  • Based on the owner’s appreciation of steel structures, the expression of this building is a simple and straightforward but distinctive design using structural steel as the primary material. Besides the characteristics and inherent benefits of structural steel in terms of high resiliency and performance under difficult conditions with the ability to go up quickly to meet tough construction schedules, structural steel can also reflect the flexibility of construction process and represent the quality of the ‘Truth to materials.’

​

    Junsekino — Tinman House

    Tinman House

    Situated on the heart of Bangkok, where the limitations of land use is the primary concern, ‘Tin Man’ is a 3-story house designed to achieve the space-saving idea under the 6 meter-span of structural steel. The name ‘Tin Man’ derives from the owner’s favorite character of the tin man or the tin woodman, a character that simply represent a humble, honest heart in the fictional ‘The Wonderful Wizard of Oz,’ created by American author L. Frank Baum.


    Junsekino — Tinman House

    Tinman House

    Since the West-facing building is problematic in terms of external radiation temperature and internal temperature loss, the idea of creating insulation applies in this particular scenario. The West facade of the Tin Man is comprised of a double wall that spans floor to roof. For interior, regarding the owner’s large collection of books, a huge bookshelf was built attach to the West-facing wall on the second floor for the purpose of insulating and creating the personal space for the owner. However, for the ventilation, the architects applied louver windows with minimal and elegant detailing that is consistent with the aesthetic look of the primary structural steel frame to create more ventilating space for the building.

    Junsekino — Tinman House

    Tinman House

    Parking is provided at the ground floor level as well as the living area, dining area, and kitchen. The architects use open floor plan, which is suitable for tropical residence to arrange the space planning. The staircase takes the main role in this building by providing vertical connection and linking all the 600 square meter-usage area together. This space provides the quality of living since it connects all the space together and allows the users to know all the activities happening in the house. The location of a skylight relating to the staircase provides day lighting and makes the linkage in terms of vertical space connection.

​

    Junsekino — Tinman House

    Tinman House

    Working space and closet are located on the second floor. The library is placed in a double space connecting the second and the third floor together. To access to the bedroom on the third floor, a spiral staircase serves this circulation. On the third floor, there is a unique space of the net – like a spider web that the owner can use – like he lives in the air. For the rooftop, this space not only provides the scene of Bangkok cityscape, but also the relaxing area with vertical garden as well as the space for the future’s expansion.

    This conceptual installation uses old wooden train tracks as an homage to a time past. It represents marks, wrinkles and infinite stories that are compiled in literary records gathered in the “Acacias” where “not even the sky is the limit”. It is then further complemented with the pleasure of the idleness found in simple and comfortable hammocks.

    ACÁCIAS COLUMN bookshelve

    Formed by six rotating shelves vertically stacked, supported and spaced out by a structural column, this shelf occupies only 50×50 cm of floor space but has the capacity to offer five linear meters of storage space. Thanks to the rotation of each shelf, all four sides of the display can be accessed making it easy for the books to be categorized and visualized. At the same time, this composition becomes incredibly aesthetic due to its ordered asymmetry and misaligned planes. Because of its structural autonomy, it can assume an “island” character, eliminating the need for additional supporting structure to be installed.

    The proprietors of this typical duplex, located in the Rosemont neighbourhood of Montreal, wished to expand and refurbish their living areas without however increasing the existing building volume.

    Atelier Barda — Maison des Érables

    Our proposed initial reflex was to repossess the upper floor of the duplex so as to convert it into a single-family house. (Cabin, cottage, shack, lodge)

    Atelier Barda — Maison des Érables

    Consequently, the clients were losing a portion of their revenue permitting them to reimburse the cost of the work. We therefore revised the initial concept and proposed to repossess only a portion of the upper floor – the double living room – that would house a bedroom, walk-in closet and bathroom for the paired owners. This made possible the refurbishment of a rentable 3 ½ (one bedroom) apartment on the upper floor.

    Atelier Barda — Maison des Érables

    As for the ground floor, it has been completely renovated so as to maximize the open and unobstructed space. The space was thus longitudinally divided into two subspaces permitting, on the one side, the conception of an open and vastly lit space (living, kitchen and dining areas) and, on the other, the erection of three precious wooden boxes which would house two bedrooms for the children and a service block (bathroom, laundry room, pantry and stairs).

    Atelier Barda — Maison des Érables

    Accesses to the bathroom and laundry room, as well as to the staircases leading to the upper floor bedroom and basement, are located at the interstices separating the three volumes.

    Atelier Barda — Maison des Érables

    The interior space thusly creates varying “plateaux of privacy”, also shaping proximity and distance; opening and closure; sharing and retreat.

    Atelier Barda — Maison des Érables

    At the ground floor, the new layout is ergo traversed by a visual axis which, longitudinally oriented with the living area, guides the inhabitants throughout their movements, from the entrance to the terrace, from the bedrooms to the bathroom and vice versa. Vistas allow interior spaces to be projected outward so as to connect living spaces with the yard and street’s landscape.

    Guangdong Museum is one of the four cultural landmarks for Zhujiang New Town of Guangzhou. Conceived as an Objet d’Art in a monumental scale, it is an allegory to the impeccably and intricately sculpted antique Chinese artifacts of a lacquer box, which collects and reflects treasures of the times. The museum is designed to house objects of treasure, and is also a treasured object of fascination. It is an identifiable cultural icon, giving visitors a memorable experience on the traditional wisdoms as well as the appreciation of the cultural identity of the city.

    Rocco Design Architects — Guangdong Museum

    The spatial arrangement of the museum takes its conceptual reference from the carvings of the legendary Chinese ivory concentric balls. Each carving slices through the museum box and reveals different layers and varying degrees of transparency and dialogues between the interior halls in an intricate and explorative way, which is then extended and reflected on the external façade design. Using materials including aluminium panels, fritted glass and GRC panels, each elevation is uniquely tailored and expressed with different geometric voids recessed into the building mass, forming interesting volumetric patterns that echo and corresponds to the interior spaces behind.

    Overt city dwellers, the clients of this chalet wished to build a secondary residence in woodlands nearing Montreal for their leisurely use throughout weekends and holidays. They then found a site set on the eastern face of mount Pinnacle in the Eastern townships of Quebec.

    Missing image

    Their requirements were modest: an easy-to-maintain residence in which its spaces were largely open to the surrounding nature, and be built from Cross-Laminated Timber (CLT), which would, in turn, project a robust and brutish image.

    Atelier Barda — Chalet forestier

    Consequently, a large volume composed of three programmatic subspaces – parent/living, loggia and children – requires for its residents to step outside in spite of the harsh winter climate in order to access adjacent spaces. This proposition which was promptly adopted by the clients enhances the occupants’relation to nature, all the while being economically viable by only heating occupied spaces.

    Atelier Barda — Chalet forestier

    As a result, the loggia allows for the two entrances to be covered, an exterior eating area protected from insects, as well as forming an access to the eastern exterior corridor whose composed colonnade recalls the trees of the forest.

    Atelier Barda — Chalet forestier

    Formally, the project presents itself as a considerably sized monolithic fragment placed on site in an illusional manner. Far from blending in with the landscape, the black mass lends its place to the surrounding nature by way of stark contrast whose effects of light and shadow never cease to transform depending on the angle from which it is approached.

    An industrial, half abandoned area in Milan’s darkest periphery is asking for an urban redevelopment: 50’000 square meters of social housing and facilities to fill what is currently seen as an urban void. Wood Sprawl undertakes the study of the peripheries along with their flaws and the monsters they left behind from the bygone 50s, the 60s and the 70s along with the lack of any care, design or any social integration. The superposition of a rational grid meant to solve all problems and flatten any diversity and challenging peculiarity. It aims to change the paradigm in suburban developments, no longer ex-novo constructions and massive buildings but rather precise surgical interventions to bring new life to the abandoned current structures. The void now becomes an urban forest, not a garden, not a park but a forest. A forest where the unexpected is welcome, where the rigid grid of the cities expansion has no value, where rational patterns stop at the borders and architecture is brought back to its primordial phase, in complete harmony with nature. A wooded area with a succession of clearings, dense patches, lakes and towers hosts small chapels, high slim bridges, floating swimming pools and metaphysical platforms. The square meters the city requires are distributed around the area: empty warehouses, deposits, occupied houses and roofless cascinas are brought back to life through rigorous study and precise interventions on the existing. All connected to the central forest through promenades that extend above the rooftops, above the yards and above the treetops. The public functions the city needs, closer to the center of the forest; the more private functions, towards the outer extremities of the footbridges. The urban scale of the periphery now becomes the first design factor for what was intended to be a series of traditional buildings

  • 07/31/15--09:11: Fidalga 505 - Candida Tabet
  • This space in the neighborhood of Vila Madalena, São Paulo, Brazil used to be composed of two residential apartments on top of a wood shop warehouse.

    Slowly Vila Madalena became the perfect place for photographers, artists and architects to establish their workspace as neighbourhoods became more urban and new uses for old buildings begun appearing over time. As I entered what seemed to be a secret area, with no direct interface with the street, I fell immediately in love. Only a small and ordinary entry door connected the street and the inside space. This door opened up to a long 20 steps stairway leading to a fragmented concrete slab with two apartments above the wood shop where the owners/brothers lived.

    To transform this space into our new office, Candida Tabet Arquitetura, we removed all of the interior walls and dropped ceiling tiles; we closed a few windows and substituted other ones with frameless glass sheets. After completely opening up the space, the only elements allowed to interrupt its continuity were the restrooms with their slightly diminished height in order to allow a complete view of the newly exposed roof structure, composed by lovely wood scissor trusses under classic ceramic roof tiles, pointing to a new vocation of pure and simplistic finishes and solutions. The wood board slab above the restrooms became a small mezzanine connected to the space below by a stair made from stacked solid wood beams.

    The larger area and what I call the creative laboratory were separated by a cozy double sided fireplace. Our new door was beautifully composed of solid rustic Garapeira wood slabs and opened up to the stairwell that leads you to our unexpected space. The door knob is made with a large playful sphere that reminds us of a clown’s nose communicating the space´s new vocation. Fixed onto the roof rafters, are bare lamps distributed around the ambiances.

    Nothing is tinted. Elements are light or dark, white or black. Only the ceramic tiles carry a color that is inherited from the base material they are made from.

  • 02/19/15--22:43: ECCD Centres - ASA studio
  • The District of Bugesera is one of the seven Districts of the Easter Province of the Rwanda. It is situated to the South West of the Province, between 3005 of longitude and 2009 of latitude South.

    ASA studio — ECCD Centres

    Nkanga ECCD Centre

    The designs for the eight ECCD centres in the Bugesera district aims to provide small rural villages with facilities that stimulate children holistically while engaging the whole community and it is the result of an extensive research on available resources and climate, the community’s social background and traditions.

    ASA studio — ECCD Centres

    Nkanga ECCD Centre

    The efficiency, sustainability and self-reliance are achieved through the use of locally available materials, and the creation of successful meeting spaces. All the inhabitants, despite their strong culture of privacy, are able to use them all day long, in virtue of solar powered lights and access to water.

    ASA studio — ECCD Centres

    Ngeruka ECCD Centre - Construction phase

    The main concept for the ECCD centres in the Bugesera district is to provide a safe and secure environment for holistic child development. The design is conceived of as an added educator, to engage in parenting education, after school homework, community meetings and women cooperatives. The scope is to give ownership of the facilities to its various stakeholders, making them socially sustainable and environmentally efficient.

    ASA studio — ECCD Centres

    ECCD General plans and elevations

    One stimulation room, oriented in response to the prevailing wind and rain, is connected with a large front porch facing the main path leading to the village centre. The open demonstration kitchen and garden are located directly opposite, and the compost production and latrines are placed on the side, next to the playground. Overall the ensemble promotes nutrition, sustainable practices and hygiene education.

    ASA studio — ECCD Centres

    Nyabiondo ECCD Centre

    The porch is the project’s core element. It fosters children relations and interaction among all inhabitants. From the outset parents, teachers and children have been excited by the preciousness of the space, that can be used throughout the year.

    ASA studio — ECCD Centres

    ECCD Centre - Cross Section

    Progress is the result of a twofold approach. On the hand the entire constructions use a reinforced masonry technique aimed at minimizing use of cement, avoiding plastering, and teaching local labour the flemish bond. On the other, specific design decisions, such as the use of composting pit latrines, aim at minimizing the use of land and the excavation of deep septic tanks.

    ASA studio — ECCD Centres

    Tunda ECCD Centre - Construction Phase

    Local materials are complemented by select technical improvements, such as the solar panel and rechargeable lamps. These provide the centres, only buildings in the villages, with artificial light, allowing for a variety of parallel functions. The rain water harvesting system and hand washing taps complete the environmental response of the project.

    ASA studio — ECCD Centres

    ECCD Centres - 3D bird view

    The topographic insertion of the project in all the 8 sites it has been replicated and adapted to, is a testament to the operation’s proficiency. The buildings avoid any modification of the natural sites, where all existing trees have been preserved.

  • 08/05/15--03:02: T-House - Onur Teke
  • The T-House is uniquely suited to the locale, letting the building intimately connected to its environment breathing with the nature.

    Onur Teke — T-House

    Transparency of the building allows the users to be connected with the nature. Almost everywhere in the house you can see through to the outside, melting the barrier between exterior and interior reinforcing the sense of place.

    Onur Teke — T-House

    The house integrates active and passive sustainable solutions into its architecture making these an un-detachable part of the whole design. Use of PV for producing energy, solar panels for water, ground source pumps for underfloor heating and cooling.

    Onur Teke — T-House

    While openings in the glazed surfaces creates cross ventilation using local winds in different seasons, natural lighting decreases the energy use, timber shading elements creates ventilated and a shaded roof surface reducing the heat gain, raised building structure allows a naturally cooled underground storage area, and designed for the possibility of collecting rain water reducing the carbon footprint of the house.

    Onur Teke — T-House

    Exterior envelope of the house is designed as continuous shear walls with exposed reinforced concrete, eliminating the need for a conventional frame structure.

    Onur Teke — T-House

    Prefabricated glue-lam beams sits on the top of the walls with steel supports and tension cables, allowing a distinct separation between different exposed structural elements.

    Onur Teke — T-House

    The house stands out as an example/proof in the village that a low cost sustainable living condition can be created working with local artisans, using technology, respecting the nature to create a contemporary architecture.

    Nel luglio 2011 studio GUM insieme al grafico Carlo Scribano, realizzano la prima installazione sul prospetto del MET: il taglialegna e l’usignolo, composizione modulare di 80 casette in legno per uccelli, una per ogni supporto; dando origine al processo avviato l’anno prima con il concept progettuale. Nel luglio 2012, nasce CARGO, progetto d’arte urbana. L’omonimo collettivo programma un calendario di eventi espositivi con scadenza annuale. Il primo agosto 2012, le 80 case vengono personalizzate da altrettanti creativi selezionati tramite un bando, in occasione di un’estemporanea svoltasi sulla piazza antistante. Riappese sul prospetto, in esposizione per 20 giorni, le case decorate sono vendute all’asta. Il progetto è no-profit: il ricavato di ogni mostra è destinato a finanziare l’installazione successiva. Sotto il profilo sociale, si ritiene che questo meccanismo possa coinvolgere la comunità, sensibilizzandola a sostenere il progetto che sentirà in parte anche suo.

    Studio GUM, Valentina Giampiccolo, Giuseppe Minaldi — Progetto Cargo

    All’indomani della vendita delle casette, è stata installata la mostra successiva. Le creature marine realizzate in materiale riciclato dall’artista livornese Stefano Pilato, catturano ancora una volta la curiosità dei passanti. Contestualmente, al vincitore della prima edizione, il collettivo Uolter Project, è stata affidata l’intera facciata per l’installazione successiva: dal dicembre 2012 al maggio dell’anno successivo, la facciata si veste di 80 telecamere di cui 70 finte e 10, poste sulla diagonale, che riprendono simultaneamente l’intorno. Dal cielo, passando per il mare fino alla piazza, le immagini sono proiettate in diretta sul prospetto attiguo. Nel giugno del 2013 il collettivo propone la sua ultima installazione al met, ME36: un lavoro che affronta il tema dell’identità dando al progetto valore antropologico/sociologico e attraverso l’interpretazione estemporanea dà origine a inaspettate visioni e riflessioni, puri esercizi di stile, per dirla alla Queneau. METrentasei propone un input per evidenziare il concetto d’identità, concedendo al pubblico la possibilità di trovarne o ritrovarne o evidenziarne la propria. Identità e non individualità perché l’identità di un popolo è frutto di una moltitudine. 36 sagome incise su pannelli di legno sono state installate sul prospetto e come gli anni precedenti, poi elaborate da altrettanti creativi e vendute all’asta.

    Studio GUM, Valentina Giampiccolo, Giuseppe Minaldi — Progetto Cargo

    Quello che inizialmente era un vuoto urbano è divenuto piazza, luogo di aggregazione, con una propria identità e grande forza comunicativa. Uno spazio privato è stato reso fruibile per espressioni artistiche, è diventato un mezzo non convenzionale di comunicazione, capace di cambiare periodicamente immagine e contenuti. Questo, a prescindere dal luogo, è l’obiettivo di CARGO, che continua a operare altrove.

    How much kiosk can you get for $75,000? Chicago Horizon probes this question through a quest to build the largest flat wood roof possible. Using Cross-Laminated Timber, a new carbon-negative engineered lumber product, in the largest dimensions commercially available, the kiosk aims to provide an excess of public space for the Architecture Biennial and Chicago beach-goers. The generous 56-foot square offers an architectural lending library and shelter from the elements during its time in Millennium Park, and later becomes a large shading canopy overlooking Lake Michigan with space for commercial vending within. Chicago Horizon expresses lightness at a variety of scales, from the 8-foot hovering roof plane to the viewing platform and vending kiosk, which are suspended from the roof using chain-link fencing without any additional supports. The lateral reach of the roof recalibrates the experience of two extremes of the Chicago landscape: at ground level, the Lake Michigan horizon dominates, forming a line of symmetry between ground and canopy. From the viewing platform, the roof becomes a new artificial horizon, shutting out the foreground and emphasizing the floating vertical Chicago skyline above an abstract floating plane.

    Ultramoderne — Chicago Horizon

    The program of the kiosk is formulated around its multiple contexts: the Chicago Architecture Biennial, the Lake Michigan beach, and, of course, the city of Chicago. During the Biennial, it will house an architectural lending library, designed both to facilitate the free exchange of books and as a venue for the exchange of new ideas: the large canopy extends well beyond the library enclosure, offering space for talks, events, and discussion, and for fair-goers to take refuge from the elements. Once the kiosk has been relocated to the Lake Michigan beach, the library transforms into a space for commercial vending, and the roof offers as much protection from the summer sun as it does from rain and snow. The lockable fence enclosures provide a secure environment for the library and commercial vendor alike, while also offering the potential for chair storage beneath the viewing platform.

    Ultramoderne — Chicago Horizon

    At night the chain-link enclosures double as a lighting installation, each outfitted with a plane of programmable LED lighting and glowing with a different color temperature. The two pulsate in dialogue with each other throughout the night, alternating between the two poles of experience that the design sets up: ceiling and floor, day and night. LED strip lighting integrated into the fencing is used as signage for both library and commercial vendor.

    Ultramoderne — Chicago Horizon

    Chicago Horizon is constructed almost entirely out of engineered timber products, including CLT for the roof canopy and glulam columns, making its total carbon impact negative due to the ability of wood to sequester atmospheric carbon. The canopy is to be fully protected by a roof membrane and an exterior grade plywood deck, ensuring its longevity. Interior enclosures are made from galvanized steel chain-link fencing, with steel grating for the viewing platform and wood shelving in the library enclosure. The fencing is suspended in tension from the canopy, providing the sole means of support for the platform and shelving. The kiosk emphasizes ease of construction, with most components fabricated off site and installation complete within a matter of days. The roof is constructed from the largest CLT panels commercially shippable in North America, and is assembled on the ground and hoisted up on glulam columns set on temporary helical pile foundations. Once the Biennial is complete, the roof can be lowered again and transported as a single piece the short distance to its final home on Lake Michigan.

    Ultramoderne — Chicago Horizon

    Structural Narrative The pavilion roof structure represents the application of the principles of flat plate (typical to concrete construction) to the material of wood. Two layers of CLT panels—one layer oriented in each principal direction, and each outer layer oriented lengthwise to the 8-foot-wide by 56-foot-long panels—combine to form a two-way spanning plate supported at points by columns. Each layer carries bending in the direction of the panel, with the layer above or below providing shear transfer between adjacent panels (and vice versa in the other direction). The result is a surprisingly thin 8.25-inch roof structure that spans upward of 30 feet between columns.

    The columns connect to the roof plate using steel tongue plate bolted to the columns, which passes up through a slot in the CLT to a horizontal plate that connects to the CLT panels from above, hidden below the roofing and waterproofing. The columns themselves are simple glued laminated sections, held off the ground by a similar tongue plate at the base. The observation platform is supported by a chain-link fence held in tension along the edge of the opening to the roof using tack welds to structural steel angle framing the opening. The overall system is simple in its detailing, use of materials, and conception of its performance as a two-way plate, and this underlying simplicity complements the efficiency of the system.

    The furniture and objects collection developed by F studio arquitetura + design, office based in Rio de Janeiro, aims to explore the minimalism of details and the iron structure challenges. The structure as a starting point. The conception is entirely manual, experimental and dynamic. Formed by architects, the conception of the studio is based on the observation of the built and natural environments – from urban scale to objects. The city, the built and the furniture are always linked by proportions and scales.
