Dalsein citizen’s Gymnasium in Daegu, South Korea by Javier Mosquera González

Tuesday, February 10th, 2015

Gymnasium = Gymnasion

In ancient Greece, the Gymnasium was used to practice exercise, as a public bath, as a center for studies and as a common place for philosophers. The main idea of this project is to create a meeting place for the  citizens. The building is configures into several exterior and interior areas where coexistence happens in a natural way. The project is divided into three parts, the first one, exterior, with a horizontal area ready to hold open air events. The second one defined as daily sports facilities, and the third one understood as the multipurpose gymnasium and spectators area, conceived as an area around the courts and directly linked to the park on the east side of the plot. The last part is the area with the common facilities such as dressing rooms, cafeteria and offices, all of them organized around those three main areas, ensuring the proper functioning of the building.

Artefakt in Kyje – Structural Thin-bole Construction in Czech Republic by Martin Rajniš

Tuesday, February 10th, 2015

Article source: Martin Rajniš

The history behind the emergence of this modest structure is highly unusual. We received a commission for a tower from the Prague 14 district government in an extensive future park. For it, we prepared three designs: one was a completely unusual construction from young logs, with which we had no previous experience, yet on the land in Horní Maxov, where our second atelier is located, there were several kilometres of them, and so we were naturally attracted to the idea of trying something with them out of pure interest in the penetration of nature into construction systems. To our great joy, but also our great surprise, precisely this tower was selected by Prague 14 for realisation. We said that first of all we needed to test this kind of structure, and so we created this artefakt. The word “artefakt” was used by us to keep it apart from the idea of a building. It is not a building, just a pure attempt, in which it was all about trying what this construction could do. Some might say that it looks a bit like a woman’s behind. A distant similarity could be seen. Yet the actual sense of the matter was to try out in all senses what a structure from young ash and maple logs could look like, how it could be put together, what structural qualities it has. It’s a preparation for the construction of the tower.
