Our design task is to explore how architecture should be integrated into such a context, to create a new and unique place, however harmonize with nature.<p class="embedded"><a href="/projects/265945-Vector-Architects-Eco-Farm-Series-Visitor-Center/images/4614536"><img alt="Vector Architects &mdash; Eco-Farm Series – Visitor Center " height="328" src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/europaconcorsi/project_images/4614536/Vector-Architects-a-_2__large.jpg" title="Vector Architects &mdash; Eco-Farm Series – Visitor Center " width="500" /></a></p><p class="image-copyright">Photo: Shengliang Su.

The architecture appears as 2 horizontal translucent screens from the farm side. The first screen is made of perforated Cor-Ten steel. The corrugation reinforces the material and ultimately saves the supporting stud system at the back. The second screen surface is made of wood louver. The corridor behind it connects the three major programs of the building. Both surfaces allow the penetration of wind, light and vision. While protecting the space from the western sun, they as well establish a blurred view of farm landscape for the people in the space. The translucencies are sensitive of capturing the light, subtly shift the architectural image through the different season, weather, and the time of the day.<p class="embedded"><a href="/projects/265945-Vector-Architects-Eco-Farm-Series-Visitor-Center/images/4614524"><img alt="Vector Architects &mdash; Eco-Farm Series – Visitor Center " height="255" src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/europaconcorsi/project_images/4614524/Vector-Architects-a-_1__large.jpg" title="Vector Architects &mdash; Eco-Farm Series – Visitor Center " width="500" /></a></p><p class="image-copyright">Photo: Shengliang Su.

Published on July 24, 2014.</p></p> <p>The harvest pavilion appears a simple, light, and translucent cuboid, with a horizontal thin plane hovering at the top, flying parallel with the horizon in the distance. The plane, made of pre-fabricated aluminum rods, cantilevers out at 4 sides at various depths. The space below becomes a transition zone from the interior to exterior, and promotes the potential activities because of the pleasant shadow casted by the canopy. The building façade system consists of vertical laminated bamboo louvers, floor-to-ceiling frameless glass panels, and pivoting glass doors, The transparency and lightness of such a material combination visually fuse the building volume with its surrounding landscape, and make the architecture sensitive to light. Under the condition of nice weather, when the pivoting glass doors are all rotated to open, the indoor space is literally stretched out into the farmland.<p class="embedded"><a href="/projects/265943-Vector-Architects-Eco-Farm-Series-Harvest-Pavilion/images/4614405"><img alt="Vector Architects &mdash; Eco-Farm Series - Harvest Pavilion " height="251" src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/europaconcorsi/project_images/4614405/Vector-Architects-L-3_large.jpg" title="Vector Architects &mdash; Eco-Farm Series - Harvest Pavilion " width="500" /></a></p><p class="image-copyright">Photo: Shu He.

The basic program consists of 48 classrooms, a number of special program classrooms, cafeteria, training gymnasium, administration areas and an outdoor exercise field.<p class="embedded"><a href="/projects/265948-Vector-Architects-Zhangjiawo-Elementary-School/images/4614728"><img alt="Vector Architects, CCDI &mdash; Zhangjiawo Elementary School " height="500" src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/europaconcorsi/project_images/4614728/Vector-Architects-01_large.jpg" title="Vector Architects, CCDI &mdash; Zhangjiawo Elementary School " width="346" /></a></p><p class="image-copyright">Photo: Shuhe Photo. Published on July 24, 2014.</p></p> <p>The design process starts with an analytical research of the spatial pattern of interactive activities, both in plan and in section. A series of physical study model were built along the process, in order to seek the most reasonable spatial and programmatic layout. Eventually the best location of the primary interactive space is discovered to be on the 2nd floor, sandwiched by regular classroom floors, and connected to the skylight through the central atrium, where natural ventilation were maximized. The space is defined by the surrounding special program classrooms, and extends itself to a green roof deck at the south side, which is also the pivot point of the site arrangement. The deck connects to the main school entrance, the outdoor fields, and different parts of the building at different heights by stairs, ramps and bridges. Such a “Platform”, consisting of indoor space and outdoor deck, not only generates and amplifies energy of interactions, also adds visual characters to the exterior building appearance because of the application of distinctive materials and space modules.<p class="embedded"><a href="/projects/265948-Vector-Architects-Zhangjiawo-Elementary-School/images/4614735"><img alt="Vector Architects, CCDI &mdash; Zhangjiawo Elementary School " height="500" src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/europaconcorsi/project_images/4614735/Vector-Architects-02_large.jpg" title="Vector Architects, CCDI &mdash; Zhangjiawo Elementary School " width="333" /></a></p><p class="image-copyright">Photo: Shuhe Photo.

Amid buildings that are mostly for office rental, glass boxes lacking a clear identity and designed with a short term logic, the project wanted to build a contrast, a structure with weight that speaks of permanence and stability, to accompany the university in its long-range commitment and transcendence. The density of the volumes, the concrete that lasts and ages, walls to be covered with vines showing the passing of the seasons, a park that matures in years and stone courtyards, combine to consolidate over time. In addition, the project seeks to build a connection beyond its neighbors, with its geographic environment. It takes advantage of the slope to render the courtyards dominant over the territory, and builds terraces at different heights, as well as a roof garden, that connects the everyday life of the project with the distant geography, San Cristobal hill, and Huechuraba valley. These are places that link leisure time with the surrounding landscape.<p class="embedded"><a href="/projects/265844-Duque-Motta-arquitectos-asociados-Rafael-Hevia-Economics-and-Business-Faculty-Diego-Portales-University/images/4612809"><img alt="Duque Motta &amp; arquitectos asociados, Rafael Hevia, Gabriela Manzi &mdash; Economics and Business Faculty, Diego Portales University " height="500" src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/europaconcorsi/project_images/4612809/Duque_Motta_48-baja_large.jpg" title="Duque Motta &amp; arquitectos asociados, Rafael Hevia, Gabriela Manzi &mdash; Economics and Business Faculty, Diego Portales University " width="302" /></a></p><p class="image-copyright"> &copy; <a href="/authors/2144617173-Fernando-Guerra-FG-SG">Fernando Guerra / FG+SG</a> .

The project of the faculty, as a first stage of the total, includes these four elements, advancing in its definition: 1. A basement formed by a linear succession of horizontal planes that builds the courtyards of intensive use, as balconies over the Huechuraba landscape, which houses the public programs of the university. In the first stage, the basement defines three different courtyards, the access square that connects the two main buildings of the faculty, the undergraduate square that connects to future phases, and the graduate square that is directly related to the park. Under these courtyards, the base houses a cafeteria, the school library and the main auditorium of the university.<p class="embedded"><a href="/projects/265844-Duque-Motta-arquitectos-asociados-Rafael-Hevia-Economics-and-Business-Faculty-Diego-Portales-University/images/4612804"><img alt="Duque Motta &amp; arquitectos asociados, Rafael Hevia, Gabriela Manzi &mdash; Economics and Business Faculty, Diego Portales University " height="333" src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/europaconcorsi/project_images/4612804/Duque_Motta_46-baja_large.jpg" title="Duque Motta &amp; arquitectos asociados, Rafael Hevia, Gabriela Manzi &mdash; Economics and Business Faculty, Diego Portales University " width="500" /></a></p><p class="image-copyright"> &copy; <a href="/authors/2144617173-Fernando-Guerra-FG-SG">Fernando Guerra / FG+SG</a> .

For the Business Faculty, this building houses undergraduate classrooms which are organized by an exterior corridor overlooking the courtyards of the project, and linked to a series of raised terraces that cross the building, serving as spatial relief at the higher levels.<p class="embedded"><a href="/projects/265844-Duque-Motta-arquitectos-asociados-Rafael-Hevia-Economics-and-Business-Faculty-Diego-Portales-University/images/4612814"><img alt="Duque Motta &amp; arquitectos asociados, Rafael Hevia, Gabriela Manzi &mdash; Economics and Business Faculty, Diego Portales University " height="496" src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/europaconcorsi/project_images/4612814/Duque_Motta_84-baja_large.jpg" title="Duque Motta &amp; arquitectos asociados, Rafael Hevia, Gabriela Manzi &mdash; Economics and Business Faculty, Diego Portales University " width="500" /></a></p><p class="image-copyright"> &copy; <a href="/authors/2144617173-Fernando-Guerra-FG-SG">Fernando Guerra / FG+SG</a> .

These unique buildings give a certain rhythm and frame the landscape view from the courtyards. They also contain the most iconic programs of each unit, and their diversity gives identity to each part of the campus. At this first stage it houses graduate classrooms and academic offices. The building develops through a spiral configuration, which links the inclined graduate rooms at half levels, and offices on its upper floors, which organize their circulation around a central light void. This building is elevated, leaving a large open space in its base that connects and articulates the higher program of the building with the courtyards, the park, and the territory.<p class="embedded"><a href="/projects/265844-Duque-Motta-arquitectos-asociados-Rafael-Hevia-Economics-and-Business-Faculty-Diego-Portales-University/images/4612826"><img alt="Duque Motta &amp; arquitectos asociados, Rafael Hevia, Gabriela Manzi &mdash; Economics and Business Faculty, Diego Portales University " height="333" src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/europaconcorsi/project_images/4612826/Duque_Motta_174-baja_large.jpg" title="Duque Motta &amp; arquitectos asociados, Rafael Hevia, Gabriela Manzi &mdash; Economics and Business Faculty, Diego Portales University " width="500" /></a></p><p class="image-copyright"> &copy; <a href="/authors/2144617173-Fernando-Guerra-FG-SG">Fernando Guerra / FG+SG</a> .

It builds a safe distance with the existing urban area, and offers an extensive sports program.<p class="embedded"><a href="/projects/265844-Duque-Motta-arquitectos-asociados-Rafael-Hevia-Economics-and-Business-Faculty-Diego-Portales-University/images/4612834"><img alt="Duque Motta &amp; arquitectos asociados, Rafael Hevia, Gabriela Manzi &mdash; Economics and Business Faculty, Diego Portales University " height="321" src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/europaconcorsi/project_images/4612834/Duque_Motta_187-baja_large.jpg" title="Duque Motta &amp; arquitectos asociados, Rafael Hevia, Gabriela Manzi &mdash; Economics and Business Faculty, Diego Portales University " width="500" /></a></p><p class="image-copyright"> &copy; <a href="/authors/2144617173-Fernando-Guerra-FG-SG">Fernando Guerra / FG+SG</a> .

The project is designed from the architecture, landscape, and technical facilities, in terms of savings in energy and water, minimizing its impact on the environment, and insuring high standards of comfort for its occupants. The building seeks to reduce solar impact on the shell: the exterior graduate walls are constructed with highly controlled openings, just enough for good lighting and views, and a central void for indirect light, around which the circulation is laid out. Furthermore, the building proposes a system of planters on the north and west facades, to grow deciduous vines that provide shade and humidity during the hot months, and a roof garden that acts as a buffer for thermal insulation. In the undergraduate building, the east facade is constructed from a concrete wall clad in decorated glass reflecting the hill and filtering light into the classrooms through controlled openings. To the west, a large vertical concrete lattice, with perennial vegetation planters, shading the corridor and classrooms. Finally, the building seeks to exploit the breeze from the west in the hot months, to generate cross ventilation in the classroom building and upward movement of air in the central void of the graduate building.<p class="embedded"><a href="/projects/265844-Duque-Motta-arquitectos-asociados-Rafael-Hevia-Economics-and-Business-Faculty-Diego-Portales-University/images/4612839"><img alt="Duque Motta &amp; arquitectos asociados, Rafael Hevia, Gabriela Manzi &mdash; Economics and Business Faculty, Diego Portales University " height="333" src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/europaconcorsi/project_images/4612839/Duque_Motta_205-baja_large.jpg" title="Duque Motta &amp; arquitectos asociados, Rafael Hevia, Gabriela Manzi &mdash; Economics and Business Faculty, Diego Portales University " width="500" /></a></p><p class="image-copyright"> &copy; <a href="/authors/2144617173-Fernando-Guerra-FG-SG">Fernando Guerra / FG+SG</a> .

The exhibition area, which is 2450 sq.m. in size, is positioned in a central location in the “Environment” section. This contribution consists of a pavilion that blends into a surrounding environment of hills and valleys so that it becomes a part of the landscape. Its elevations are up to 5 meters high, and the gap between them meanders like the course of a river through the landscape.<p class="embedded"><a href="/projects/265779-Rmp-Stephan-Lenzen-Landschaftsarchitekten-Architekturb-ro-Ruhnau-The-North-Rhine-Westphalia-contribution-Floriade-2012/images/4611815"><img alt="Rmp Stephan Lenzen Landschaftsarchitekten, Architekturbüro Ruhnau &mdash; The North Rhine-Westphalia contribution, Floriade 2012 " height="332" src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/europaconcorsi/project_images/4611815/Floriade_04_large.jpg" title="Rmp Stephan Lenzen Landschaftsarchitekten, Architekturbüro Ruhnau &mdash; The North Rhine-Westphalia contribution, Floriade 2012 " width="500" /></a></p><p class="image-copyright">© Thomas Mayer, <a href="http://thomasmayerarchive.de/">thomasmayerarchive.de</a>.

The slopes harbour benches, a climbing wall, a hill where people can relax and tiered seating for “open-air” events. Both the building and the landscape are extensively constructed from wood. The planting is in uniform rows running perpendicular to the course of the line. On display here are products and services relating to every aspect of the profession of gardening.<p class="embedded"><a href="/projects/265779-Rmp-Stephan-Lenzen-Landschaftsarchitekten-Architekturb-ro-Ruhnau-The-North-Rhine-Westphalia-contribution-Floriade-2012/images/4611827"><img alt="Rmp Stephan Lenzen Landschaftsarchitekten, Architekturbüro Ruhnau &mdash; The North Rhine-Westphalia contribution, Floriade 2012 " height="332" src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/europaconcorsi/project_images/4611827/Floriade_03_large.jpg" title="Rmp Stephan Lenzen Landschaftsarchitekten, Architekturbüro Ruhnau &mdash; The North Rhine-Westphalia contribution, Floriade 2012 " width="500" /></a></p><p class="image-copyright">© Thomas Mayer, <a href="http://thomasmayerarchive.de/">thomasmayerarchive.de</a>.

After choosing a site on the cliffs of the Matosinhos seashore, Tavora turned the project over to his collaborator, Alvaro Siza. One of Siza’s first built projects, it is significant that the restaurant is not far from the town of Matosinhos where the architect grew up, and set in a landscape that he was intimately familiar with. It was still possible in Portugal of the 1960s to make architecture by working in close contact with the site, and this work, much like the Leça Swimming Pools of 1966, is about ‘building the landscape’ of this marginal zone on the Atlantic – through a careful analysis of the weather and tides, existing plant life and rock formations, and the relationship to the avenue and city behind.<p class="embedded"><a href="/projects/265753--lvaro-Siza-Renovation-of-Boa-Nova-Tea-House/images/4611251"><img alt="Álvaro Siza &mdash; Renovation of Boa Nova Tea House " height="334" src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/europaconcorsi/project_images/4611251/JM_SizaVieira_BoaNova_012_large.jpg" title="Álvaro Siza &mdash; Renovation of Boa Nova Tea House " width="500" /></a></p><p class="image-copyright"> &copy; <a href="/authors/2144705147-Jo-o-Morgado-">João Morgado </a> . Published on July 23, 2014.</p></p> <p>Removed from the main road by some 300 meters, the building is accessed from a nearby parking lot through a system of platforms and stairs, eventually leading to an entry sheltered by a very low roof and massive boulders characteristic to the site. This architectural promenade, a sinuous path clad in white stone and lined by painted concrete walls, presents several dramatic perspectives of the landscape as it alternatively hides and reveals the sea and the horizon line.<p class="embedded"><a href="/projects/265753--lvaro-Siza-Renovation-of-Boa-Nova-Tea-House/images/4611224"><img alt="Álvaro Siza &mdash; Renovation of Boa Nova Tea House " height="332" src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/europaconcorsi/project_images/4611224/JM_SizaVieira_BoaNova_001_large.jpg" title="Álvaro Siza &mdash; Renovation of Boa Nova Tea House " width="500" /></a></p><p class="image-copyright"> &copy; <a href="/authors/2144705147-Jo-o-Morgado-">João Morgado </a> . Published on July 23, 2014.</p></p> <p>The restaurant’s west-facing dining room and south room are set just above the rocks, and joined by a double-height atrium and stair, with the entrance being on a higher level. The kitchen, storage and employee areas are half-sunken in the back of the building, marked only by a narrow window and a mast-like chimney clad in tiles. Forming a butterfly in plan, the two primary spaces open gently around the sea cove, their exterior walls following the natural topography of the site. The tea room has large windows above an exposed concrete base, while the dining room is fully glassed, leading to an outdoor plateau. In both rooms, the window frames can slide down beneath the floor, leaving the long projecting roof eaves in continuum with the ceiling. This creates an amazing effect in the summer, when it is possible to walk out from the dining room directly to the sea, as the building seems to disappear.<p class="embedded"><a href="/projects/265753--lvaro-Siza-Renovation-of-Boa-Nova-Tea-House/images/4611236"><img alt="Álvaro Siza &mdash; Renovation of Boa Nova Tea House " height="332" src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/europaconcorsi/project_images/4611236/JM_SizaVieira_BoaNova_005_large.jpg" title="Álvaro Siza &mdash; Renovation of Boa Nova Tea House " width="500" /></a></p><p class="image-copyright"> &copy; <a href="/authors/2144705147-Jo-o-Morgado-">João Morgado </a> .

On the outside the facing of the projecting eaves is made with long wood boards trimmed with copper flashing. The roof is a concrete slab covered by Roman red terracotta tiles and by a wood suspended ceiling.<p class="embedded"><a href="/projects/265753--lvaro-Siza-Renovation-of-Boa-Nova-Tea-House/images/4611241"><img alt="Álvaro Siza &mdash; Renovation of Boa Nova Tea House " height="332" src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/europaconcorsi/project_images/4611241/JM_SizaVieira_BoaNova_007_large.jpg" title="Álvaro Siza &mdash; Renovation of Boa Nova Tea House " width="500" /></a></p><p class="image-copyright"> &copy; <a href="/authors/2144705147-Jo-o-Morgado-">João Morgado </a> .

The upper levels consist of more than 2000 ceramic elements. Among them 50&#215;100cm flat panels, vertical blinds and (for the first time in Poland) curved panels of 145cm and 195 cm radius. Three different shades of red were implemented to create irregularity on the surface of the all four elevations. These shades symbolize the variation of color in blood. The color of blood, oxygenated in the lungs and flowing in the arteries, is bright red, while blood flowing in the veins, containing carbon dioxide, is dark red.<p class="embedded"><a href="/projects/265283-FAAB-Architektura-Blood-Center-in-Racib-rz-Poland/images/4611687"><img alt="FAAB Architektura &mdash; Blood Center in Racibórz, Poland " height="333" src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/europaconcorsi/project_images/4611687/FAAB_RCKiK_IMG_1234_large.jpg" title="FAAB Architektura &mdash; Blood Center in Racibórz, Poland " width="500" /></a></p><p class="image-copyright">Photo by Bartłomiej Senkowski. © FAAB Architektura.

The stairwell placed in the building’s center, lit with the aid of natural sunlight, is finished with red ceramic tiles along the corridor. Red color is present on floors and walls as an accent. Most rooms are lit by two belts of windows. The lower window belt illuminates laboratory worktops placed along the outer walls while the upper belt, just below the ceiling, allows the infiltration of natural light to the remotest parts of the rooms. Thanks to glazed internal walls, the corridors are also lit with natural sunlight.<p class="embedded"><a href="/projects/265283-FAAB-Architektura-Blood-Center-in-Racib-rz-Poland/images/4611676"><img alt="FAAB Architektura &mdash; Blood Center in Racibórz, Poland " height="333" src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/europaconcorsi/project_images/4611676/FAAB_RCKiK_IMG_0354_large.jpg" title="FAAB Architektura &mdash; Blood Center in Racibórz, Poland " width="500" /></a></p><p class="image-copyright">Photo by Bartłomiej Senkowski. © FAAB Architektura.

The 70 m long bridge has a traffic lane in each direction contained within wide footpaths to either side. Connecting the recently rehabilitated Port district with its housing, amenities, offices and Imprimerie Nationale workshops as well as Avenue Anatole France to the town centre, the bridge is an essential element in guaranteeing the success of this new district which, until now, has been cut off from the city due to its location between the railway lines and the River Seine.<p class="embedded"><a href="/projects/265738-Jacques-Ferrier-Architectures-New-Bridge-in-Choisy-le-Roi/images/4611045"><img alt="Jacques Ferrier Architectures &mdash; New Bridge in Choisy-le-Roi " height="272" src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/europaconcorsi/project_images/4611045/BRIDGE_024_large.jpg" title="Jacques Ferrier Architectures &mdash; New Bridge in Choisy-le-Roi " width="500" /></a></p><p class="image-copyright">© Jacques Ferrier Architectures/photo Luc Boegly . Published on July 23, 2014.</p></p> <p>The need for uninterrupted traffic flow – with the exception of a two hour break at night – represented the point of departure for the project’s technical and architectural design. It resulted in the bridge being designed as a straight double beam preassembled on one side of the railway lines which was then pushed out over the tracks in two operations, a solution that ensured that the overall span did not require any intermediate supports.<p class="embedded"><a href="/projects/265738-Jacques-Ferrier-Architectures-New-Bridge-in-Choisy-le-Roi/images/4611050"><img alt="Jacques Ferrier Architectures &mdash; New Bridge in Choisy-le-Roi " height="333" src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/europaconcorsi/project_images/4611050/BRIDGE_023_large.jpg" title="Jacques Ferrier Architectures &mdash; New Bridge in Choisy-le-Roi " width="500" /></a></p><p class="image-copyright">© Jacques Ferrier Architectures/photo Luc Boegly. Published on July 23, 2014.</p></p> <p>The infrastructure is contained within in a silvered perforated aluminium grid. This cladding, inspired by the wrapping of the Pont Neuf bridge by Christo and Jeanne-Claude, creates a memorable and poetic image without in any way interfering with the specifically technical aspects of the construction. The grid creates a pleat that provides the bridge with a fabric-like sensuality while simultaneously revealing the presence of the structure. This aspect is further emphasised by the green colour that is used, especially successful when lit up at night. The result is that the grid offers a highly distinctive atmosphere when crossing the bridge by car or on foot. The pleat envelops the structure, protecting, surrounding and framing the views at either end.<p class="embedded"><a href="/projects/265738-Jacques-Ferrier-Architectures-New-Bridge-in-Choisy-le-Roi/images/4611053"><img alt="Jacques Ferrier Architectures &mdash; New Bridge in Choisy-le-Roi " height="418" src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/europaconcorsi/project_images/4611053/BRIDGE_022_large.jpg" title="Jacques Ferrier Architectures &mdash; New Bridge in Choisy-le-Roi " width="500" /></a></p><p class="image-copyright">© Jacques Ferrier Architectures/photo Luc Boegly. Published on July 23, 2014.</p></p> <p>The bridge presents itself as a uniting object, whether seen from above or from a distance. Its unambiguous technology provides a highly visible expression of the link created over the railway tracks and leading into the city. It is an approach that also places emphasis on the “poetry of useful objects”, a way of inserting itself into the city that avoids any need for formal gestures. The bridge presents itself as an icon, an efficient yet familiar object able to play a vital role in this rapidly changing urban environment.<p class="embedded"><a href="/projects/265738-Jacques-Ferrier-Architectures-New-Bridge-in-Choisy-le-Roi/images/4611061"><img alt="Jacques Ferrier Architectures &mdash; New Bridge in Choisy-le-Roi " height="350" src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/europaconcorsi/project_images/4611061/BRIDGE_019_large.jpg" title="Jacques Ferrier Architectures &mdash; New Bridge in Choisy-le-Roi " width="500" /></a></p><p class="image-copyright">© Jacques Ferrier Architectures/photo Luc Boegly.

The “nave” has been designed as a multiple coating shell, reducing the energy cost. On the south façade, more than 250 square meters of photovoltaic panels control day light and produce 10% of the power consumption. A see water pump installed under the boardwalks insures the right temperature all year long. The wind tower supports a wind turbine which produces the electricity needed for the heating pump. In other words, this ecological building will use the energy brought by the sea, the wind and the sun to reduce drastically its energy consumption.<p class="embedded"><a href="/projects/265703-Jacques-Ferrier-Architectures-Sailing-Museum-Eric-Tabarly/images/4610260"><img alt="Jacques Ferrier Architectures &mdash; Sailing Museum Eric-Tabarly " height="500" src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/europaconcorsi/project_images/4610260/JFA_Cit‚-de-la-voile_Jean-Marie-Monthiers_vue-faille-int‚rieure_large.jpg" title="Jacques Ferrier Architectures &mdash; Sailing Museum Eric-Tabarly " width="333" /></a></p><p class="image-copyright">© Jacques Ferrier architectures/photo Jean-Marie Monthiers.

Published on July 22, 2014.</p></p> <p>Beyond creating an additional value economically and aesthetically, lofts today have become not only a culture and a way of life coveted by many inhabitants of large cities, but also a point of reference within contemporary architecture. Open spaces with an almost industrial tone, not fanatically divided into sections, constitute a prospect to live-work and create at the same place; they are flexible and sometimes open to public.<p class="embedded"><a href="/projects/265664-Tabanlioglu-Architects-Levent-Loft/images/4609916"><img alt="Tabanlioglu Architects &mdash; Levent Loft " height="326" src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/europaconcorsi/project_images/4609916/Levent_Loft_Thomas_Mayer01_large.jpg" title="Tabanlioglu Architects &mdash; Levent Loft " width="500" /></a></p><p class="image-copyright">Photo by Thomas Mayer. Published on July 22, 2014.</p></p> <p>The open spaces, often in converted bonded warehouses and redundant factories had a markedly industrial aesthetic. Walls were usually unplastered brickwork, services were exposed and floors were of concrete screed. The essence of a loft apartment is open, flexible, adaptable space for live/work accommodation accessible to the city. Today such accommodation is a way of life for the inhabitants of many large cities. The phenomenon highlights a cultural shift in the perception of a ‘house’ and a ‘home’ and arguably points to other shifts in the concept of ‘family’.<p class="embedded"><a href="/projects/265664-Tabanlioglu-Architects-Levent-Loft/images/4609921"><img alt="Tabanlioglu Architects &mdash; Levent Loft " height="332" src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/europaconcorsi/project_images/4609921/Levent_Loft_Thomas_Mayer02_large.jpg" title="Tabanlioglu Architects &mdash; Levent Loft " width="500" /></a></p><p class="image-copyright">Photo by Thomas Mayer.

Keeping the existing concrete frame, the building, re-designed within the Levent Loft concept, has taken on a new lease of life as an up-market residential enclave.<p class="embedded"><a href="/projects/265664-Tabanlioglu-Architects-Levent-Loft/images/4609931"><img alt="Tabanlioglu Architects &mdash; Levent Loft " height="333" src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/europaconcorsi/project_images/4609931/Levent_Loft_Emre_Dorter01_large.jpg" title="Tabanlioglu Architects &mdash; Levent Loft " width="500" /></a></p><p class="image-copyright">Photo by Emre Dörter. Published on July 22, 2014.</p></p> <p>The raw material for Levent Loft was an empty office building shaped like a train – long and thin, and made up of three separate ‘carriages’: a 12-storey block at the front, an eight-storey block at the rear, and a five-storey coupling link in between.<p class="embedded"><a href="/projects/265664-Tabanlioglu-Architects-Levent-Loft/images/4609936"><img alt="Tabanlioglu Architects &mdash; Levent Loft " height="500" src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/europaconcorsi/project_images/4609936/Levent_Loft_Thomas_Mayer03_large.jpg" title="Tabanlioglu Architects &mdash; Levent Loft " width="327" /></a></p><p class="image-copyright">Photo by Thomas Mayer. Published on July 22, 2014.</p></p> <p>The form of the existing structure dictated the linearity of the internal plans. The apartments range from 68 m2 to 182 m2: the larger ones are duplexes with a terrace or roof garden. This kind of layout in turn determined the profile of the people who would live here. The elongated apartments are unsuited to the sprawling requirements of family life, but are ideal for single people or couples without children. Even with this demographic, we initially had a job to convince the client that the original precast concrete coffer slabs should be left exposed and not covered with a suspended ceiling. Off-form concrete columns, exposed ductwork, floor-to-ceiling operable windows and pine floors reinforce the loft aesthetic. In the bedrooms, movable room dividers double as storage space. Further storage is provided in the basement levels, along with parking.<p class="embedded"><a href="/projects/265664-Tabanlioglu-Architects-Levent-Loft/images/4609941"><img alt="Tabanlioglu Architects &mdash; Levent Loft " height="500" src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/europaconcorsi/project_images/4609941/Levent_Loft_HeleneBinet03_large.jpg" title="Tabanlioglu Architects &mdash; Levent Loft " width="400" /></a></p><p class="image-copyright">Photo by Helene Binet.

The projecting bays, with their shifting geometries, allow people to readily identify their own space from the outside. Due to the curtain system, a range of colors and light reflect from inside, as a method of benefiting functional solutions for esthetics purposes.<p class="embedded"><a href="/projects/265664-Tabanlioglu-Architects-Levent-Loft/images/4609946"><img alt="Tabanlioglu Architects &mdash; Levent Loft " height="500" src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/europaconcorsi/project_images/4609946/Levent_Loft_HeleneBinet02_large.jpg" title="Tabanlioglu Architects &mdash; Levent Loft " width="400" /></a></p><p class="image-copyright">Photo by Helene Binet.

The apartments are private and self-contained, but not isolated. The entrance is made through the lobby, designed as the essential meeting place; residents have a chance to get to know their neighbors in the shared social spaces on the ground floor. The front lobby contains a bar/restaurant; the rear block a gym, swimming pool and hammams – when you go for a steam bath you can look out the light-filled corridor onto a landscaped ‘Zen’ garden.<p class="embedded"><a href="/projects/265664-Tabanlioglu-Architects-Levent-Loft/images/4610021"><img alt="Tabanlioglu Architects &mdash; Levent Loft " height="354" src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/europaconcorsi/project_images/4610021/plantypes_large.jpg" title="Tabanlioglu Architects &mdash; Levent Loft " width="500" /></a></p><p class="image-copyright"> &copy; <a href="/authors/2144730752-Tabanlioglu-Architects">Tabanlioglu Architects</a> .

La ville du Mont Saint Michel d’origine médiéval bâtie sur un rocher dans la baie et l’abbaye sur son sommet représentent une dimension culturelle majeure. Le changement du niveau de la mer suite aux marées de 14 m en altitude crée un événement répété exposant les forces de la nature et offre des paysages variés – l’étendue d’une plage jusqu&#8217;à l’horizon alternée par une baie inondée avec seul repère le Mont devenu île.<p class="embedded"><a href="/projects/265611-Dietmar-Feichtinger-Architectes-La-Jet-e-marcher-sur-l-eau/images/4609181"><img alt="Dietmar Feichtinger Architectes &mdash; La Jetée - marcher sur l'eau " height="334" src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/europaconcorsi/project_images/4609181/06_Mathias_Neveling_Marée_haute_mars_2014_large.JPG" title="Dietmar Feichtinger Architectes &mdash; La Jetée - marcher sur l'eau " width="500" /></a></p><p class="image-copyright">DFA - photo by Mathias Neveling.

La création d’un accès à l’abri des marées répond à la mise en place d’un cheminement en toute sécurité pour les visiteurs. La surélévation du chemin et sa pose sur des pilotis permet l’écoulement des eaux autour de l’ile. Le chemin offre une promenade aux piétons et porte les navettes afin de rendre le monument accessible à tous. C’est aussi une voie communale qui répond à toutes les contraintes d’une route ordinaire.<p class="embedded"><a href="/projects/265611-Dietmar-Feichtinger-Architectes-La-Jet-e-marcher-sur-l-eau/images/4609186"><img alt="Dietmar Feichtinger Architectes &mdash; La Jetée - marcher sur l'eau " height="282" src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/europaconcorsi/project_images/4609186/09_Barbara_Feichtinger-Felber_detail_large.JPG" title="Dietmar Feichtinger Architectes &mdash; La Jetée - marcher sur l'eau " width="500" /></a></p><p class="image-caption">Detail construction</p><p class="image-copyright">DFA - Barbara Feichtinger-Felber.

En suivant des lignes dessinées par l’eau il propose des perspectives multiples autour du Mont. Parfaitement horizontal la ligne du tablier se fond dans l’horizon. Le tablier, une lame sur l’eau, est porté par des piliers fins. L’optimisation de l’épaisseur est obtenue par un rapprochement des piliers tous les 12 m. Ils sont encastrés en tête et en pieds. L’encastrement en tête est obtenu par soudure avec la structure du tablier, en pieds par une fixation du pilier dans le pieux béton d’une profondeur de 30 m fondés sur le schiste. La structure est composée d’éléments horizontaux et verticaux. La pureté du dessin est obtenue par l’absence de diagonales ou croix de contreventements. L’horizontalité du tablier se comprend en contraste avec la verticalité du monument renforçant la spécificité de chaque ouvrage. La finesse des piliers d’un diamètre de 250 mm nécessite une épaisseur des tubes de 40 à 60 mm selon la longueur du pilier.</p> <p>Plus qu’un franchissement le rapprochement des piliers décrit une promenade à l’image d’une estacade, d’une jetée qui avance vers le large. La série des piliers répond à l’immensité du site et évite le recoupement en séquences mesurables. La voie carrossable est en partie centrale. Une structure acier transversale porte un tablier en béton. Latéralement des porte-à-faux larges accueillent les promeneurs sur un platelage bois porté par des consoles métalliques en T. Des piliers doubles tous les 120 m correspondent à l’extrémité des unités continues. La dilatation due à la température est reprise ici en tenant compte de la souplesse des piliers élancés. Les garde-corps et les supports d’un banc continu séparant la chaussé et la promenade pour piétons sont également en acier. La couleur de la structure d’un gris métallisé exprime sa matérialité. Elle reflète la lumière et souligne la légèreté de l’ouvrage.</p> Tue, 22 Jul 2014 13:10:12 +0200 http://europaconcorsi.com/projects/265611-Dietmar-Feichtinger-Architectes-La-Jet-e-marcher-sur-l-eau http://europaconcorsi.com/projects/265611-Dietmar-Feichtinger-Architectes-La-Jet-e-marcher-sur-l-eau La Prairie - atelier Ar-Chè - Chérifa Séhimi + Jérôme Girard <p>The architects from Atelier Ar-Chè have created &#8220;La Prairie&#8221; (&#8220;The Meadow Field&#8221;), an installation of uncanny, dreamlike vegetation on the Defense Esplanade.<p class="embedded"><a href="/projects/265596-atelier-Ar-Ch-Ch-rifa-S-himi-J-r-me-Girard-La-Prairie/images/4608777"><img alt="atelier Ar-Chè - Chérifa Séhimi + Jérôme Girard &mdash; La Prairie " height="375" src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/europaconcorsi/project_images/4608777/07-prairie_large.jpg" title="atelier Ar-Chè - Chérifa Séhimi + Jérôme Girard &mdash; La Prairie " width="500" /></a></p><p class="image-caption">La Prairie de La Défense Chérifa Séhimi + Jérôme Girard</p><p class="image-copyright"> &copy; <a href="/authors/2144719450-atelier-Ar-Ch-Ch-rifa-S-himi-J-r-me-Girard">atelier Ar-Chè - Chérifa Séhimi + Jérôme Girard</a> .
