EDAA´s most recent Project is YÁCATAS 475, a building that creates a design experience throughout the entire development process (design, management, construction, sales) narrowing the bridge between Architecture and Real State.
Second and third floor spaces of the Clinical Research Center for Medical Equipment Development (CRCMeD) at Kyoto University Hospital. These two floors, occupied by Canon Inc. and Kyoto University, will become the future site for projects developed in collaboration between people lending their expertise to research initiatives and a great number of supporters. The thoughts of each of these people working in various fields will come together in this space, bringing together a convergence of knowledge and skills that will create new possibilities. The design expresses the invisible “threads” that connect each of these different thoughts to one another, just like how threads are spun together to create a strong, supple fabric. Specifically, ito (Japanese for “thread”) is used as a motif that would bridge the second and third floors of this research center, designing a space that came together in a single, massive flow. Just like how new possibilities emerge out of encounters between people, a spectrum of different colors appear at the junctions between threads, creating chromatic combinations that resemble landscapes: field green, sky blue, light cherry pink, snow white, dusky orange, and white horizons.

The project is located at a small village in the North area of the municipality of Lorca (Murcia), inhabited by some 150 people, and belongs to a plan developed by the city council to promote the permanence of young people at their hometowns. Designing a project with this purpose made us think, in the first place, about the idea of belonging to a roughly defined group- in this particular case the young people from Las Terreras- but expressing, in the second place, the individuality of each of its members.

Benelong Crescent apartments are inspired by the sinuous forms of Erich Mendelsohn’s Einstein Tower in Potsdam, completed in the 1920’s. The apartments cascade down the hill to follow the contours and the curved terraced balconies are shaped by the irregular boundaries of the site, rounded off by the prevailing winds.
The 19th century building rests on a hill in Crucoli, a small Italian hilltown above the Ionic Sea. The old quarry stone house is squeezed into the organic urban structure and sits right on the steep edge of the hill. This specific situation provides the house with a terrific view into the Sila mountains and defines the spatial layout. So technical improvements went together with the reorganzation of rooms.
The reconversion of the Mining Site of Wallers-Arenberg is in the middle of the Agglomeration community “La Porte du Hainaut” which is, at the same time, initiating and owner of this project.
The wish to mobilize this site for a project emanates from several points:
To rehabilitate and reallocate a site with very high historical and patrimonial value, classified as an Historic monument at the World heritage list of UNESCO, under Evolutionary Cultural Landscapes. http://whc.unesco.org/en/list/1360
In the urban landscape of northeast Paris, the project sits at the crossroads of several transport networks : the major artery Boulevard Mac Donald, the Parisian beltway, the canal Saint-Denis, and the railway axis leading to the Gare de l’Est train station.
By virtue of its verticality and the autonomy of its form, the building signals and highlights the intersection of these diverse networks. Veritable visual landmark, it marks the alignment of the canal from the confines of Saint-Denis to Aubervilliers. As seen from the Port of Aubervilliers, it constitutes a background to the large thoroughfare of Boulevard Mac Donald.
Stripped of its original defensive function, a unique living environment has been created on the characteristic Schiereiland. Groosman has designed the new buildings to reference the old industrial structures, so that the character of the imposing island is maintained, impressions of the past are re-experienced and a unique living environment, in which a Woerdenaar can identify with, is created.
