Gymnasium, Palais des Sports in Loudéac, France by Agence Bohuon Bertic Architectes

Tuesday, June 19th, 2012

Article source: Agence Bohuon Bertic Architectes

At first, the establishment site of the sports hall has an open character.  We are in the presence of a simple space, a vast grassland which spreads throughout the south side of a hill. Located on the upper part, it is a maximum space which has conserved the beauty of agricultural spaces, contained in planted trees limits.  The choice of establishing the sports hall on the plot comes from a clear relationship and complementarity with the close existing sportive area.  This space has clearly the distant and the horizon for limits but also long and high tree lines which contain the hill and emphasize the slopes of the scenery.

Meeting Hall Gosdorf in Styria, Austria by HOFRICHTER-RITTER Architects

Tuesday, June 19th, 2012

Article source: HOFRICHTER-RITTER Architects

In comparison to the local surroundings, the distinctive architecture of the hall marks the attempt to provide a new highlight in a highly heterogeneous and, in terms of scale, non-homogeneous structure of a rural settlement. The hall has been deliberately designed as a venue for everyone; it stands apart from its neighbouring buildings and almost looks like a UFO that has just landed.

Floating Islands in New York City by Gianluca Milesi Architecture

“DO IT BEFORE NOT AFTER” – floating structures operation – A new way to think at disaster The worlds is becoming more and more sensitive to the climate changing, that, according to the most reputed studies, will have heavy and often dramatic effects on the earth and on us. Recently very well known dramatic events pushed the citizens, the governments and the organizations to think new and more appropriate strategies in order to provide relief to the population’s victims of these catastrophic natural events. This is the aim of this competition too. In medicine there are mostly two ways to try to reduce the impact of diseases on people; one is to cure and the other one is to prevent. We all know that to prevent is better than to cure.

Article source: Ramirez-Gonzalez Studio, PSC

Proposed by Ramirez-Gonzalez Studio architecture firm, the ECO-Sport Facility is a novel design, which accomplishes the re-engineering of the typical basketball court architecture in Puerto Rico into a sustainable building. The concept was based on the firm’s own philosophy by conceiving ‘Architecture as an Adapted Product’ which permits the project architects to improve the structure environmental output within cost-efficiency parameters from early stages of the design development.

Valiant Forces : Seoul’s Urban Stadium as a Poly-Valiant Structure and Explosive Tectonic Form in Korea by Michael Arellanes II

Tuesday, June 19th, 2012

Article source:  Michael Arellanes II

The design proposal is for an urban stadium that will serve the local colleges, high schools, and surrounding communities within Seoul to enclose sports venues and entertainment. The site is located in the Nan-Ji camping area near No-Eul Park, Sang -Am-Dong. This is an ideal site for its view of the city skyline and its proximity to nature. With such an explosive tectonic form placed in such a site, the project performs as a catalyst for varied activities over long durations. Scale and material elements activate the urban condition by the stadiums placement along the coast. With a radiant force of curvature and triangulated panelization through the path of the structures body, it adds a dynamic flux form with structural capabilities. The valiancy is applied to the outer and inner structural shell by its configuration, composite-performance, aesthetic, and operational functions. The dynamic curving exterior body is intended to have poly-operational purposes, not only a visual stimulus but as a layered structure with curving pockets of space that transition the occupant from floor to floor. Entrance into the structure begins at the center of the exploding tectonics; this brings them into a tessellated secondary structure that’s integrated into the stadium seating. The form of the exterior begins with radically fluid bodies and transition into sleek components that shield weather elements and perform with edifice veracity. The component shells distribute tension through the varied curved type and contain a gradient cavity that screens sunlight for the stadium audience. Materials for the project are stainless steel, carbon fiber, and concrete to create a strong monument of urban flux and valiance.

Concept:

Poly-Valiant structures are tectonics with multi-performance properties that address engineering, aesthetics, technology, surfaces, space, and component based typologies. The urban stadium attempts to contain sleek elements and lines like that of high performance sports cars. This gives the stadium valiancy in aerodynamic formal bodies and operational function. The aesthetic formalizes an exploding force that compounds into a structural shell, and then stretches across in a simple-elegant curve. It expresses the varied stages of force.

SPORT COURT in Sarcelles, France by Emmanuel Combarel

Tuesday, June 19th, 2012

Article source:  Emmanuel Combarel

Located 16 kilometres from Paris, Sarcelles is part of the banlieue that hurriedly accommodated the immigrants who arrived at the end of the 50s. With a current population close to 60.000, Sarcelles consists of a small old core and a huge expansion to the south known as Le grand Ensemble and conceived in 1965 by Jacques Henri-Labourdette. Paradigm of an urban plan where the urgency of social housing was such that no thought was given to mitigating the conflicts of coexistence, fifty years after it went up the city is the scene of confrontations between communities of different belief and has an unemployment rate nearing 20%.
