Glanhof 1 in Klagenfurt, Austria by ARCHITECTS COLLECTIVE ZT-GmbH

Saturday, November 21st, 2015

Article source: ARCHITECTS COLLECTIVE ZT-GmbH 

The Glanhof is a multi-story housing complex with 150 units in the center of Klagenfurt, Austria. It is named for its location on the Glan River and the arrangement of three building structures surrounding a green and sunny courtyard. In the first phase, a long-stretched structure was built along the Pischeldorfer street, which can be reached via an access balcony with a unique irregular zig-zag geometric facade that integrates hundreds of photovoltaic elements. The 50 – 75 m2 sized subsidized aartments feature up to 15 m2 large balconies oriented to the courtyard. Part of the energy concept of the virtually self-sufficient project is the geothermal brine reservoir that stores excess solar energy from the photovoltaic system during sunny months.

POVERA PAVILION in ALMADA, PORTUGAL by ATELIER JQTS

Saturday, November 21st, 2015

Article source: ATELIER JQTS

Usually a scenography in theater appears as a consequence of a certain text and a certain sequence of actions. Could we conceive it in the opposite direction? Would it be possible to use space as a way of anticipate and contribute the whole action as an outline condition? The scenography, or as we would argue, the Architecture itself, might influence the play and favor for certain actions instead of some others in an informal and none imposed way. Space, text and action could come together in a non hierarchical order and in a close relation and intimacy. Rossi says that “theater has to do with the happening: his beginning, development and conclusion. Without happening there’s no Theater and there’s no Architecture”.
