Europaconcorsi - Projects Europaconcorsi - Projects Health Sciences Faculty - Taller Basico de arquitectura, Javier Perez Herreras & Fco Javier Quintana de Uña <p>The new Health Faculty of San Jorge University is located on a campus on the outskirts of Zaragoza city. Although it is a rural campus, the nature in it is scarce. The forest along the campus is the result of a man created operation. The surrounding buildings, the Rectory and Communications Faculty, respond to a contemporaneous architecture that lives besides that nature.<p class="embedded"><a href="/projects/267735-Taller-Basico-de-arquitectura-Health-Sciences-Faculty/images/4652406"><img alt="Taller Basico de arquitectura, Javier Perez Herreras &amp; Fco Javier Quintana de Uña &mdash; Health Sciences Faculty " height="302" src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/europaconcorsi/project_images/4652406/sj_01_large.jpg" title="Taller Basico de arquitectura, Javier Perez Herreras &amp; Fco Javier Quintana de Uña &mdash; Health Sciences Faculty " width="500" /></a></p><p class="image-caption">south east view</p><p class="image-copyright"> &copy; <a href="/authors/2144700569-Taller-Basico-de-arquitectura">Taller Basico de arquitectura</a> .

The new faculty is not only another building; it becomes part of the new place. Architecture is thought as part of a new nature.<p class="embedded"><a href="/projects/267735-Taller-Basico-de-arquitectura-Health-Sciences-Faculty/images/4652423"><img alt="Taller Basico de arquitectura, Javier Perez Herreras &amp; Fco Javier Quintana de Uña &mdash; Health Sciences Faculty " height="333" src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/europaconcorsi/project_images/4652423/sj_02_large.jpg" title="Taller Basico de arquitectura, Javier Perez Herreras &amp; Fco Javier Quintana de Uña &mdash; Health Sciences Faculty " width="500" /></a></p><p class="image-caption">square</p><p class="image-copyright"> &copy; <a href="/authors/2144700569-Taller-Basico-de-arquitectura">Taller Basico de arquitectura</a> .

Inside, on two floors, classrooms and laboratories are organized for teaching and research. Each scale catches the light needed for each room. The dimensions and shape of rooms allow a big variability of use. Consequently, it is possible an academic reorganization in an easy way. Light coming through scales can be controlled, so digital technologies can be used inside rooms. The minor creases of each line contain the most public rooms of the new faculty: cafeteria, conference room and multipurpose rooms.<p class="embedded"><a href="/projects/267735-Taller-Basico-de-arquitectura-Health-Sciences-Faculty/images/4652433"><img alt="Taller Basico de arquitectura, Javier Perez Herreras &amp; Fco Javier Quintana de Uña &mdash; Health Sciences Faculty " height="176" src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/europaconcorsi/project_images/4652433/sj_04_large.jpg" title="Taller Basico de arquitectura, Javier Perez Herreras &amp; Fco Javier Quintana de Uña &mdash; Health Sciences Faculty " width="500" /></a></p><p class="image-caption">north view</p><p class="image-copyright"> &copy; <a href="/authors/2144700569-Taller-Basico-de-arquitectura">Taller Basico de arquitectura</a> .

The square gives access to the three lines. Lines look at each other through the square, which discovers the inside of this mineral complex. The inside and outside relation of the faculty gets inverted. The concave outside happens to be the most interior room, and the convex inside becomes the most exterior place.<p class="embedded"><a href="/projects/267735-Taller-Basico-de-arquitectura-Health-Sciences-Faculty/images/4652455"><img alt="Taller Basico de arquitectura, Javier Perez Herreras &amp; Fco Javier Quintana de Uña &mdash; Health Sciences Faculty " height="333" src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/europaconcorsi/project_images/4652455/sj_07_large.jpg" title="Taller Basico de arquitectura, Javier Perez Herreras &amp; Fco Javier Quintana de Uña &mdash; Health Sciences Faculty " width="500" /></a></p><p class="image-caption">north west view</p><p class="image-copyright"> &copy; <a href="/authors/2144700569-Taller-Basico-de-arquitectura">Taller Basico de arquitectura</a> .

By wrapping the program in a supporting white concrete prefab façade, as opposed to the stated red brick, the building distinguishes itself between the nearby red housing and the black office building. The simple yet muscular building which came into existence seems to play a central role in a curious and interesting composition of old and new and, as such forms a keystone of the ambitious urban development plan of Laan op Zuid.<p class="embedded"><a href="/projects/267616-KAAN-Architecten-Vancouver/images/4650444"><img alt="KAAN Architecten &mdash; Vancouver " height="433" src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/europaconcorsi/project_images/4650444/KAAN-Architecten-Vancouver-Rotterdam-00_large.jpg" title="KAAN Architecten &mdash; Vancouver " width="500" /></a></p><p class="image-caption">Vancouver in Rotterdam, NL</p><p class="image-copyright"> Photo by Sebastian van Damme.

Unico elemento introdotto esteriormente è il nuovo ingresso realizzato in cemento a vista e ferro verniciato di rosso vivo per le parti che contengono impianti e macchinari.

Desenvolvida em estrutura leve e suspensa do solo, a casa é formada por dois volumes retangulares de diferentes texturas que se interceptam, gerando um espaço de distribuição definidor de duas alas ao mesmo tempo em que propõem a transição do meio natural verso artificial, apostando no diálogo por contraste. Implantada no centro do lote, rodeada pela mata, a casa vence um suave declive, apoiando-se sobre uma laje em concreto armado afastado do solo de modo a não interferir no perfil natural e livrá-la da umidade ascendente.<p class="embedded"><a href="/projects/267725-MAPA-MAAM-STUDIOPARALELO-Ref-gio-S-o-Chico/images/4651943"><img alt="MAPA | MAAM + STUDIOPARALELO &mdash; Refúgio São Chico " height="310" src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/europaconcorsi/project_images/4651943/RSC_IMG_2_large.jpg" title="MAPA | MAAM + STUDIOPARALELO &mdash; Refúgio São Chico " width="500" /></a></p><p class="image-copyright"> &copy; <a href="/authors/2144731664-Eduardo-Aigner">Eduardo Aigner</a> .

O segundo volume, em madeira e mais transparente, atravessa o pavilhão metálico configurando o setor social e de serviço. Do transpassar desses volumes, um deck em madeira se projeta sobre a mata, atravessando o corpo principal da casa exercendo a função de acesso, hall de distribuição e varanda. Nesse espaço de articulação, a cobertura é translúcida e uma porta corrediça permite que a paisagem permeie o projeto.<p class="embedded"><a href="/projects/267725-MAPA-MAAM-STUDIOPARALELO-Ref-gio-S-o-Chico/images/4651948"><img alt="MAPA | MAAM + STUDIOPARALELO &mdash; Refúgio São Chico " height="310" src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/europaconcorsi/project_images/4651948/RSC_IMG_3_large.jpg" title="MAPA | MAAM + STUDIOPARALELO &mdash; Refúgio São Chico " width="500" /></a></p><p class="image-copyright"> &copy; <a href="/authors/2144731664-Eduardo-Aigner">Eduardo Aigner</a> .

Painéis de madeira (OSB) forrados por membrana permeável que impede a umidade e permite transpiração da madeira, complementam a estrutura externa. No interior, placas de gesso acartonado cobrem as paredes e forro, seguidas pela lã de rocha ocupando o vazio entre as superfícies proporcionando isolamento térmico. Uma caixa em blocos de concreto, semi-enterrada, recuada em relação a laje, conforma as fundações da casa abrigando no maior desnível um depósito. Tanto esse volume como a laje foram seccionadas na projeção do deck, permitindo o escoamento natural das águas da chuva. O projeto procurou responder as necessidades do programa desejando delimitar o espaço construído, sem mimetizar ou camuflar-se, mas apropriando-se da paisagem sem competir com a mesma.<p class="embedded"><a href="/projects/267725-MAPA-MAAM-STUDIOPARALELO-Ref-gio-S-o-Chico/images/4651953"><img alt="MAPA | MAAM + STUDIOPARALELO &mdash; Refúgio São Chico " height="348" src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/europaconcorsi/project_images/4651953/RSC_IMG_4_large.jpg" title="MAPA | MAAM + STUDIOPARALELO &mdash; Refúgio São Chico " width="500" /></a></p><p class="image-copyright"> &copy; <a href="/authors/2144731664-Eduardo-Aigner">Eduardo Aigner</a> .

From this level, stairs and lift allow access to an exhibition space downstairs, defined by a square room formed of 11.7 and 11.7 meters by 7 meters height. This room is visually integrated with the entrance level through a transparent plan that allows crossed views through the room. From the entrance level another staircase leads to to the upper floor, housed in a closed corten box, with large flexible exhibition spaces, amplifying the curatorial possibilities while accommodating a large variety of rooms. While the inferior room provides a visual interaction with the surrounding landscape through the transparency of its upper glass panels, the upper rooms define an introspective ambience, with clear differentiation from the outside environment. Zenital openings were conceived, providing indirect natural light in three of the four sides of the main room. The staircase also has natural light, reinforcing its role as a transitional space with a strong public character.<p class="embedded"><a href="/projects/267720-Arquitetos-Associados-Miguel-Rio-Branco-Gallery-Inhotim/images/4651818"><img alt="Arquitetos Associados &mdash; Miguel Rio Branco Gallery - Inhotim " height="333" src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/europaconcorsi/project_images/4651818/18907_100924_012D_large.jpg" title="Arquitetos Associados &mdash; Miguel Rio Branco Gallery - Inhotim " width="500" /></a></p><p class="image-copyright"> &copy; <a href="/authors/2144617174-Leonardo-Finotti">Leonardo Finotti</a> .

In order to reach this image, the terrain was redesigned, concealing the inferior room, that is carved on the site and avoids the definition of a built volume, while organizing the main entrance area as a void.<br> 
In order to enhance the mineral character of the main block, as suggested by the artist, its construction uses steel structure with steel seals with natural patina finish as the external walls. The patina favors subtle variations in color and texture of the surfaces of the main volume, marked by time and weather. To reinforce this characteristic, the project sought to minimize the presence of traditional architectural attributes, such as doors, windows, walls, roofs, dealing with the deliberate abstraction of the built element and manipulating the volume with subtle deformations defined by the various inclinations of the exterior steel seals.<p class="embedded"><a href="/projects/267720-Arquitetos-Associados-Miguel-Rio-Branco-Gallery-Inhotim/images/4651831"><img alt="Arquitetos Associados &mdash; Miguel Rio Branco Gallery - Inhotim " height="333" src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/europaconcorsi/project_images/4651831/18907_100924_008D_large.jpg" title="Arquitetos Associados &mdash; Miguel Rio Branco Gallery - Inhotim " width="500" /></a></p><p class="image-copyright"> &copy; <a href="/authors/2144617174-Leonardo-Finotti">Leonardo Finotti</a> .

The superimposition of two different structure types – the concrete frame with flat slabs in the first three levels and the structural masonry of red brick in the two upper levels – defines the main formal attributes of the building concerning mass and void, openings and surfaces. The intentional absence of walls and fences reinforces the open character of the pilotis, as an attempt to redefine the relation of the building with the public realm.<p class="embedded"><a href="/projects/267620-Arquitetos-Associados-Estudios-Terra-240/images/4650498"><img alt="Arquitetos Associados &mdash; Estudios Terra 240 " height="337" src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/europaconcorsi/project_images/4650498/ECK-0514_large.jpg" title="Arquitetos Associados &mdash; Estudios Terra 240 " width="500" /></a></p><p class="image-copyright"> &copy; <a href="/authors/2144731636-Eduardo-Eckenfels">Eduardo Eckenfels</a> .

Developed by Design Office Takebayashi Scroggin [DOTS] for participation in the Festival des Architectures Vives (FAV) at La Grande Motte, these constructs explore the festival’s theme of “Sensuality” by allowing visitors to play in, on, and around the voluptuous shapes or simply relax and engage in conversation on the large soft bodies. Each “cloud” is comprised of an aggregation of inflated vinyl spheres wrapped in translucent nylon mesh producing a variety of playful figures situated underneath a canopy of trees within the courtyard of Église Saint-Augustin.<p class="embedded"><a href="/projects/267718-D-O-T-S--Cloud-Garden/images/4651778"><img alt="D.O.T.S. &mdash; Cloud Garden " height="334" src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/europaconcorsi/project_images/4651778/FAV2014_Cloud_Garden_DOTS__2__large.jpg" title="D.O.T.S. &mdash; Cloud Garden " width="500" /></a></p><p class="image-copyright"> &copy; <a href="/authors/2144731034-Paul-Kozlowski-Paris">Paul Kozlowski Paris</a> .

The reception pavilion is » resonance » with this imaginary place, this interleaving scales ranging from a large landscape to the concrete dock. It plays with different scales and unfolds according to several readings. From afar, a white cube abstract, is revealed gradually as one approaches.

In 1978, Fatoumata Goundourou found an orphan baby in the street and brought him home. From now on, her house will become a shelter for no less than 30 children of all ages. In 2010, the mayor of the city of Fresnes (south of Paris) – Jean-Jacques Bridey – was told by some of his citizens of Fatoumata’s story. Then he went to Mali to meet Fatoumata and decided to build a proper orphanage in Dialakoroba (50 km south of Bamako). The orphanage offers housings for children and staff, a small medical centre, administration offices, toilet and shower blocks, a kitchen and a dining hall. Classrooms and terraces are located on the first floor for children’s activities. The blocks are arranged around a central yard in the fashion of traditional Malian and West-African architecture.<p class="embedded"><a href="/projects/267538-F8-architecture-Orphelinat-Falatow-Jigiyaso/images/4649859"><img alt="F8 architecture &mdash; Orphelinat Falatow Jigiyaso " height="334" src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/europaconcorsi/project_images/4649859/2.F8architecture_Orphelinat_VanjaBjelobaba_fa‡adeOuest_large.jpg" title="F8 architecture &mdash; Orphelinat Falatow Jigiyaso " width="500" /></a></p><p class="image-copyright"> &copy; <a href="/authors/2144731612-Vanja-Bjelobaba">Vanja Bjelobaba</a> . Published on August 19, 2014.</p></p> <p>On this project, located in the subsahelian area, we faced extreme weather conditions. Moreover, for practical, environmental and economic reasons, we choose not to use air conditioning units or even simple fans. For those reasons, the whole design of the orphanage is based on three principles that would guarantee a good comfort in the building. The first principle is the reduction of solar heat gain.To do so, an additional roof is placed above the blocks. Those roofs that go over the blocks’ edges protect the rooms from direct solar gain. Moreover, those extra roofs protect the terraces located on the first floor and used for children activities. The second principle was to improve the thermal mass of the walls. All the walls are made of “H”-shape concrete blocks. Then, the hollow centres of the blocks are filled with Banco: a recipe of mud and grain husks. Banco is easily found in Mali and is well-known for its strong thermal properties. Finally, gabion cladding is used on the most exposed façades. The last principle was about natural ventilation. On the scale of the whole orphanage, the layout of the blocks tends to improve air circulation. On a small scale, each block features vent grills in order to allow natural ventilation and passive cooling. During the warm season in April, we measured an indoor-outdoor temperature difference of more than 20°C. This result tends to prove the benefits of the specific design developed on this project.<p class="embedded"><a href="/projects/267538-F8-architecture-Orphelinat-Falatow-Jigiyaso/images/4649852"><img alt="F8 architecture &mdash; Orphelinat Falatow Jigiyaso " height="334" src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/europaconcorsi/project_images/4649852/1.F8architecture_Orphelinat_VanjaBjelobaba_fa‡adeOuest2_large.jpg" title="F8 architecture &mdash; Orphelinat Falatow Jigiyaso " width="500" /></a></p><p class="image-copyright"> &copy; <a href="/authors/2144731612-Vanja-Bjelobaba">Vanja Bjelobaba</a> . Published on August 19, 2014.</p></p> <p>As the orphanage is located outside the village of Dialakoroba and far from the services, we had no choice but to make it self-sufficient. Photovoltaic panels are placed on the roof to produce electricity. Groundwater is pumped in a 70m depth well. Another important aspect of the project is waste water management. As Mali faces great water issues, we believed it was particularly relevant to imagine a second life for the water used in the building. Therefore, waste water are collected and processed through an extensive treatment system. The first component of this system is a digester making possible the settlement of suspended solids. The second component is a biofilter where anaerobic bacteria are fixed on sand beds in order to purify the water. When depolluted water exits this device, it flows to an opened pond used for fish farming. The overflowing water – around 4 m3 a day – is then used for agriculture (especially market gardening) allowing several harvests a year instead of one. This system not only provides food for the orphanage but also provides education for the children in the fields of market gardening and fish farming. Finally the orphanage outdoes its primary function of giving a shelter to the children and takes a part in their education and fulfillment.<p class="embedded"><a href="/projects/267538-F8-architecture-Orphelinat-Falatow-Jigiyaso/images/4649864"><img alt="F8 architecture &mdash; Orphelinat Falatow Jigiyaso " height="334" src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/europaconcorsi/project_images/4649864/3.F8architecture_Orphelinat_VanjaBjelobaba_admin_large.jpg" title="F8 architecture &mdash; Orphelinat Falatow Jigiyaso " width="500" /></a></p><p class="image-copyright"> &copy; <a href="/authors/2144731612-Vanja-Bjelobaba">Vanja Bjelobaba</a> .

The idea of using “H”-shape concrete blocks that is a very relevant compromise between a complete concrete masonry design and a complete mudbrick solution was given by a Malian engineer. The extensive wastewater treatment process design by our friend Gérard Violante, a French engineer, was implement for the first time in Mali and should find other applications elsewhere. As a conclusion, this whole adventure will be always remembered by our team not only because of the nature of the project but also thanks to the quality of the exchanges we experience with people. This first project will be also remembered for bringing our team together to create our architecture firm.<p class="embedded"><a href="/projects/267538-F8-architecture-Orphelinat-Falatow-Jigiyaso/images/4649869"><img alt="F8 architecture &mdash; Orphelinat Falatow Jigiyaso " height="334" src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/europaconcorsi/project_images/4649869/4.F8architecture_Orphelinat_VanjaBjelobaba_courInf_large.jpg" title="F8 architecture &mdash; Orphelinat Falatow Jigiyaso " width="500" /></a></p><p class="image-copyright"> &copy; <a href="/authors/2144731612-Vanja-Bjelobaba">Vanja Bjelobaba</a> .

As the symbolic entry of this growing city, the footbridge had to be harmoniously integrated into the landscape.<p class="embedded"><a href="/projects/267536-Lemay-Footbridge-Candiac/images/4649675"><img alt="Lemay &mdash; Footbridge Candiac " height="330" src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/europaconcorsi/project_images/4649675/15298-preview_low_865-8_15298_sc_v2com_large.jpg" title="Lemay &mdash; Footbridge Candiac " width="500" /></a></p><p class="image-copyright"> &copy; <a href="/authors/2144731611-Fran-ois-Desc-teaux">François Descôteaux</a> . Published on August 19, 2014.</p></p> <p>Designed for pedestrians as well as for cyclists, the footbridge draws its originality from an architectural concept that generates a sense of motion and energy, a kinetic and theatrical experience. The effect, for both highway and footbridge users, is created by the superposition of two reversed metal screens, located on either side of this link that spans the highway. The vertical slats provide protective screens that still offer a glimpse of the landscape. Finally, the use of ocher is a reminiscence of the grasses that grow abundantly in the territory.<p class="embedded"><a href="/projects/267536-Lemay-Footbridge-Candiac/images/4649687"><img alt="Lemay &mdash; Footbridge Candiac " height="333" src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/europaconcorsi/project_images/4649687/15296-preview_low_865-8_15296_sc_v2com_large.jpg" title="Lemay &mdash; Footbridge Candiac " width="500" /></a></p><p class="image-copyright"> &copy; <a href="/authors/2144731611-Fran-ois-Desc-teaux">François Descôteaux</a> .

It offers an alternative for users that wish to reach the shores of the St. Lawrence River without having to take their car.

Our aim was to break away from conventional image of campuses that consist of hard materials such as concrete, metal or stone, and to instead design a soft building made with wood and earth. Here, scalelike panels of natural materials (wood and earth) gently undulate to form a smooth and organic façade.<p class="embedded"><a href="/projects/267463-Kengo-Kuma-Associates-Daiwa-Ubiquitous-Computing-Research-Building/images/4648820"><img alt="Kengo Kuma &amp; Associates &mdash; Daiwa Ubiquitous Computing Research Building " height="334" src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/europaconcorsi/project_images/4648820/TUUB_148_DC36092_L_large.jpg" title="Kengo Kuma &amp; Associates &mdash; Daiwa Ubiquitous Computing Research Building " width="500" /></a></p><p class="image-copyright">© Takumi Ohta.

It joins the lane in the front and the Japanese garden (part of the university president’s guest house) at the back. The opening also generates a gentle and organic flow of light and wind in the campus, which is otherwise dominated by the strict grid arrangement.  <p class="embedded"><a href="/projects/267463-Kengo-Kuma-Associates-Daiwa-Ubiquitous-Computing-Research-Building/images/4648833"><img alt="Kengo Kuma &amp; Associates &mdash; Daiwa Ubiquitous Computing Research Building " height="400" src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/europaconcorsi/project_images/4648833/14_1302_large.jpg" title="Kengo Kuma &amp; Associates &mdash; Daiwa Ubiquitous Computing Research Building " width="500" /></a></p><p class="image-copyright">© SS Tokyo.

To this date, the surroundings of the residence are still defined by bucolic landscapes, iconic Swiss chalets and other buildings of similar nature that were erected along the years, always with a consistent touch of nostalgia.<p class="embedded"><a href="/projects/267451-Chevalier-Morales-Architectes-R-sidence-Roy-Lawrence/images/4648655"><img alt="Chevalier Morales Architectes &mdash; Résidence Roy-Lawrence " height="320" src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/europaconcorsi/project_images/4648655/15587-preview_low_721-5_15587_sc_v2com_large.jpg" title="Chevalier Morales Architectes &mdash; Résidence Roy-Lawrence " width="500" /></a></p><p class="image-copyright"> &copy; <a href="/authors/2144654105-Chevalier-Morales-Architectes">Chevalier Morales Architectes</a> . Published on August 18, 2014.</p></p> <p>Naturally, the icon of the Swiss chalet, &#8211; somehow representing a lost ideal of country living &#8211; became the starting point for the conceptual development of the residence. Its traditional tripartite composition consisting of a robust stone base, a solid-wood frame and of a strong protective roof was studied and analyzed in details. Aiming to reinterpret in a contemporary manner these traditional elements, the final version of residence could be read as a composition of three distinct formal elements stacked on top of each other: a solid concrete base anchored to the rocky ground, a post and beam frame allowing total fenestration on the panorama, and a large protective roof which projects itself into an important cantilever over the garage entrance.<p class="embedded"><a href="/projects/267451-Chevalier-Morales-Architectes-R-sidence-Roy-Lawrence/images/4648663"><img alt="Chevalier Morales Architectes &mdash; Résidence Roy-Lawrence " height="333" src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/europaconcorsi/project_images/4648663/15586-preview_low_721-5_15586_sc_v2com_large.jpg" title="Chevalier Morales Architectes &mdash; Résidence Roy-Lawrence " width="500" /></a></p><p class="image-copyright"> &copy; <a href="/authors/2144654105-Chevalier-Morales-Architectes">Chevalier Morales Architectes</a> . Published on August 18, 2014.</p></p> <p>The layout of the interiors were conceived following very simple geographical orientation principles and relied mainly on natural lighting control, dominant wind management and on panoramic views of the scenery on the south west side. On the north east side, a long wooden wall follows the path leading the visitor to the main entrance which has been recessed towards the middle of the residence, thus creating a compression effect at the entry point. This longitudinal access participates to the discovery and entry processes, orchestrated with the intent of slowly revealing the exceptional qualities of the site. Like a bite taken in the layout, the totally glazed interior courtyard allows transversal transparency and is giving to the owners the opportunity to fully experience a privileged contact with the mountain. This connection between built space and exterior space contributes to enhance the spatial quality of the main living area by integrating within the house a fragment of the mountain.<p class="embedded"><a href="/projects/267451-Chevalier-Morales-Architectes-R-sidence-Roy-Lawrence/images/4648668"><img alt="Chevalier Morales Architectes &mdash; Résidence Roy-Lawrence " height="333" src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/europaconcorsi/project_images/4648668/15588-preview_low_721-5_15588_sc_v2com_large.jpg" title="Chevalier Morales Architectes &mdash; Résidence Roy-Lawrence " width="500" /></a></p><p class="image-copyright"> &copy; <a href="/authors/2144654105-Chevalier-Morales-Architectes">Chevalier Morales Architectes</a> . Published on August 18, 2014.</p></p> <p>The design aimed to bring the qualities of the eastern township’s natural and built landscape into the architecture of the house in order to create an appropriate and responsible insertion of the project in its actual context. The residence is low and outspread, its shapes, colors and its materiality are directly inspired by the site. From the beginning, the objectives were to create a residence that seems to emerge from the ground and that was built with materials found on site. Ultimately, the volumetric and material integration of the residence relies on visual integration and trying to preserve the quality of the surrounding landscapes.<p class="embedded"><a href="/projects/267451-Chevalier-Morales-Architectes-R-sidence-Roy-Lawrence/images/4648673"><img alt="Chevalier Morales Architectes &mdash; Résidence Roy-Lawrence " height="333" src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/europaconcorsi/project_images/4648673/15589-preview_low_721-5_15589_sc_v2com_large.jpg" title="Chevalier Morales Architectes &mdash; Résidence Roy-Lawrence " width="500" /></a></p><p class="image-copyright"> &copy; <a href="/authors/2144654105-Chevalier-Morales-Architectes">Chevalier Morales Architectes</a> .

The fruit of centuries of cultivation has inspired the local wine maker and his partners to preserve and present it to the public. The replanted grapes produce an unrivalled wine and the vineyard welcomes visitors who long for exceptional scenery, ancient grapes and relaxation.<p class="embedded"><a href="/projects/267355-Bal-zs-Mari-n-Wine-Terrace-and-Spa-/images/4646264"><img alt="Balázs Marián, Péter Gereben &mdash; Wine Terrace and Spa " height="333" src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/europaconcorsi/project_images/4646264/AES_01_large.jpg" title="Balázs Marián, Péter Gereben &mdash; Wine Terrace and Spa " width="500" /></a></p><p class="image-copyright">© Dávid Lukács.

Scale and material draw on the local traditions of the medieval hut: a small building with a pitched tin roof and thick, monolithic earth walls. Concealed by the rows of the vineyard, with only its roof peeking out, it provides protection and a place to rest. Evoking the image of a row of traditional huts, the covered, yet open and airy space of the wine terrace offers shelter from the summer sun.<p class="embedded"><a href="/projects/267355-Bal-zs-Mari-n-Wine-Terrace-and-Spa-/images/4646270"><img alt="Balázs Marián, Péter Gereben &mdash; Wine Terrace and Spa " height="333" src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/europaconcorsi/project_images/4646270/AES_02_large.jpg" title="Balázs Marián, Péter Gereben &mdash; Wine Terrace and Spa " width="500" /></a></p><p class="image-copyright">© Zsolt Frikker.

The thick walls of the buildings were created using this stone debris. The layered and manually mixed, rammed earth concrete walls cite the climatic characteristics, wall structure and material qualities of the excavated cellars.<p class="embedded"><a href="/projects/267355-Bal-zs-Mari-n-Wine-Terrace-and-Spa-/images/4646275"><img alt="Balázs Marián, Péter Gereben &mdash; Wine Terrace and Spa " height="281" src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/europaconcorsi/project_images/4646275/AES_03_large.jpg" title="Balázs Marián, Péter Gereben &mdash; Wine Terrace and Spa " width="500" /></a></p><p class="image-copyright">© Zsolt Frikker.

The bridge consists of two steel lattice beams in corten steel on each side of the walkway, with a system of vertical and diagonal members. The walls are clad with sheets of stainless steel stretch-metal and corten steel. On the south side of the river, after crossing the bridge from Sand, a small pavilion in concrete was made to accommodate for small picnics and pit-stops for passers-by.<p class="embedded"><a href="/projects/267359-Rintala-Eggertsson-Architects-bru-over-h-se/images/4646437"><img alt="Rintala Eggertsson Architects &mdash; bru over høse " height="334" src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/europaconcorsi/project_images/4646437/20130520-suldal-0089_large.jpg" title="Rintala Eggertsson Architects &mdash; bru over høse " width="500" /></a></p><p class="image-copyright"> &copy; <a href="/authors/58577-Rintala-Eggertsson-Architects">Rintala Eggertsson Architects</a> .

The idea was to establish a connection between the different geographies – the ones which the children carry within themselves as memories from their home countries and their new location in the beautiful hillside overlooking the lake Mjoesa. The trees become thus the physical link which not only symbolizes life, and growth in a new soil but they also provide the children and the staff the positive activity of cultivation of the environment.<p class="embedded"><a href="/projects/267360-Rintala-Eggertsson-Architects-Gj-vik-Care-Centre-For-Juvinile-Asylumseekers/images/4646539"><img alt="Rintala Eggertsson Architects &mdash; Gjøvik Care Centre For Juvinile Asylumseekers " height="500" src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/europaconcorsi/project_images/4646539/PasiAalto-20110923-00025-2-Edit_large.jpg" title="Rintala Eggertsson Architects &mdash; Gjøvik Care Centre For Juvinile Asylumseekers " width="284" /></a></p><p class="image-copyright"> &copy; <a href="/authors/2144666007-Pasi-Aalto">Pasi Aalto</a> . Published on August 14, 2014.</p></p> <p>The architecture of the arboretum is based on a map of the world which was derived from a triangulated model of the earth. This model was developed in the 1950&#8217;s to create the most accurate representation of the globe. The map shows the continents in a row, the one after the other and gives an association to how people in the world and their cultures are linked together in a long continuous chain. This teaches us how the small is a part of a larger whole and how the individual plays a role in the world which surrounds us.

To create good growing conditions for the trees, we propose a series of wooden windscreens. They create a better microclimate and consequently also a good shelter against the wind for the residents of the care centre.<p class="embedded"><a href="/projects/267360-Rintala-Eggertsson-Architects-Gj-vik-Care-Centre-For-Juvinile-Asylumseekers/images/4646544"><img alt="Rintala Eggertsson Architects &mdash; Gjøvik Care Centre For Juvinile Asylumseekers " height="500" src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/europaconcorsi/project_images/4646544/PasiAalto-20110923-00029-Edit_large.jpg" title="Rintala Eggertsson Architects &mdash; Gjøvik Care Centre For Juvinile Asylumseekers " width="394" /></a></p><p class="image-copyright"> &copy; <a href="/authors/2144666007-Pasi-Aalto">Pasi Aalto</a> .

The Ragnitzstraße 36 project is meeting these conflicting priorities in the following manner: A structurally simple, systematic and efficiently designed base building structure houses all apartments. To the south, this structure is flanked by zigzag-shaped, spacious balconies, while the north side features a pergola opening encased in expanded metal.<p class="embedded"><a href="/projects/267352-LOVE-architecture-Ragnitzstra-e/images/4646108"><img alt="LOVE architecture &mdash; Ragnitzstraße " height="333" src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/europaconcorsi/project_images/4646108/1000_large.jpg" title="LOVE architecture &mdash; Ragnitzstraße " width="500" /></a></p><p class="image-copyright"> &copy; <a href="/authors/2144731511-Jasmin-Schuller">Jasmin Schuller</a> .

The balconies and outside areas that cover the entire apartment widths are partially roofed and feature a minimum size of 17m2. Thus, the actual living area extends towards the outside area, and living rooms and bedrooms appear larger and more spacious. The larch-wood balcony railings are placed in a fan-like manner along the zigzag rhythm of the cantilever slab, with both materials and workmanship creating a homely atmosphere.<p class="embedded"><a href="/projects/267352-LOVE-architecture-Ragnitzstra-e/images/4646118"><img alt="LOVE architecture &mdash; Ragnitzstraße " height="500" src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/europaconcorsi/project_images/4646118/0940_large.jpg" title="LOVE architecture &mdash; Ragnitzstraße " width="333" /></a></p><p class="image-copyright"> &copy; <a href="/authors/2144731511-Jasmin-Schuller">Jasmin Schuller</a> .

Das Projekt Ragnitzstraße 36 reagiert auf dieses Spannungsfeld folgendermaßen: Ein baulich simpler, systematisch und effizient konzipierter Basisbaukörper beherbergt sämtliche Wohnungen. Dieser Basisbaukörper wird im Süden von zick-zack-förmigen, großzügigen Balkonen flankiert. Im Norden findet sich eine mit Streckmetall eingehauste Laubengangerschließung.</i><p class="embedded"><a href="/projects/267352-LOVE-architecture-Ragnitzstra-e/images/4646123"><img alt="LOVE architecture &mdash; Ragnitzstraße " height="333" src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/europaconcorsi/project_images/4646123/0983_large.jpg" title="LOVE architecture &mdash; Ragnitzstraße " width="500" /></a></p><p class="image-copyright"> &copy; <a href="/authors/2144731511-Jasmin-Schuller">Jasmin Schuller</a> .

Our arrangement, winner of the urban planning contest, lays the buildings on both sides of a linear park that organizes the pedestrian traffic of the campus. This first building settles the front of Madrid Street, connecting itself by means of a walkway to the building already standing on the plot and making it possible to cross the building in its central part through a big foyer that connects the new park with the rest of the campus. Two storeys are organized on each side of this foyer, the Humanities library on one side and the lecture rooms on the side that is closer to the pre-existing lecture hall building.

On the one hand, as opposed to an educational architecture that is traditionally rigid, systematic and repetitive, we take sides for a flexible, diverse and humanized architecture. An architecture tending less to be a reflection of the institution’s authority and more attentive to provide services to teachers and students, creating spaces for diverse encounters where a great number of new models of learning and research can be accommodated.<p class="embedded"><a href="/projects/267348-Estudio-Beldarrain-Building-Carmen-Mart-n-Gaite/images/4645911"><img alt="Estudio Beldarrain &mdash; Building Carmen Martín Gaite " height="334" src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/europaconcorsi/project_images/4645911/edif_cmartingaite_fotosFBerreteaga-_2__large.jpg" title="Estudio Beldarrain &mdash; Building Carmen Martín Gaite " width="500" /></a></p><p class="image-copyright"> &copy; <a href="/authors/2144627125-Francisco-Berreteaga">Francisco Berreteaga</a> .

System and repetition, on their own, provide a reassuring coherence and an economy of means, at the same time as they offer an intense flexibility. On the other hand, exception and diversity humanize architecture and make the user free to choose among multiple possibilities of use, which awards him a leading role.<p class="embedded"><a href="/projects/267348-Estudio-Beldarrain-Building-Carmen-Mart-n-Gaite/images/4645921"><img alt="Estudio Beldarrain &mdash; Building Carmen Martín Gaite " height="334" src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/europaconcorsi/project_images/4645921/berreteaga1_large.jpg" title="Estudio Beldarrain &mdash; Building Carmen Martín Gaite " width="500" /></a></p><p class="image-copyright"> &copy; <a href="/authors/2144627125-Francisco-Berreteaga">Francisco Berreteaga</a> .

This area was developed about 90 years ago, based on the ideas of Eiichi Shibuzawa&#8212;to build a garden city on the hill ever blessed with gentle breezes and abundant vegetation. To maintain the philosophy of this environmental formation, rules for the conservation of green, stricter than those of the other residential areas of Tokyo, were stipulated, such as requiring houses to be set back 2m from the roads.
