Public Space in Gora Pulawska, Poland by 3XA

Saturday, March 21st, 2015

Article source: 3XA

Local authorities decided to transform an undeveloped piece of land in the center of Gora Pulawska into recreational space and meeting point for the village residents. The designers’ intention was to create a new square, which would be unique to its users. It should serve them well and meet their needs in every possible way. Therefore, several different zones have been designed, each intended for either leisure or recreational purposes. There is an open area with numerous benches, meant for small gatherings or outdoor events. There are also covered arbours with tables and seats intended for the residents to integrate, and finally there are large platform benches, where one can sit back and spend time in larger groups. Lighting was designed in the form of tall, slender lanterns and lamps located in the floor. The whole space has been equipped with bike racks and information boards. Landscaping elements such as pergolas, benches, lanterns and bins are made of corten steel. Benches are covered with light coloured oak wood. And the entire project is complemented with the greenery. Numerous birches and colourful bushes have been planted on both sides of the central axis. The embankment above the square has also been covered with decorative vegetation, formed in colourful stripes. The space is located below Radomska Street, which will ensure isolation from the busy arterial route. Functional differentiation of space, the use of sustainable and upstanding materials and the interesting greenery arrangement, all add up to a newly completed center of Gora Pulawska.

Fire and Rescue Centre in Rennes, France by LAN Architecture

Saturday, March 21st, 2015

Article source: LAN Architecture

The fundamental idea of this project lies at the exact intersection of architecture, urbanism and landscape architecture. We directly considered the urban character of this project as a crucial point, in light of the scale and the impact of the intervention on the surrounding area in future. This project represents the exceptional opportunity to delineate a very special identity. An identity that incorporates concepts like ecologic engagement, energy conservation, passive construction, community interests, social mixture, awareness of the qualities of the landscape, water resource management and preservation of biodiversity along with immutable concepts such as beauty, attractiveness, allurement, atmosphere and poetry.

Song-chu Bending Band in Gyeonggi, Korea by L’EAU design Co., Ltd.

Friday, March 20th, 2015

Article source: L’EAU design Co., Ltd.

Self-mapping through topological setting
Songchu plantation does not have an unsure master plane yet except a worthwhile purpose. This land has to be prepared to be used for multi-purpose accordingly. In other words, it needs architectural structures that organize self-mapping through topological setting rather than a development that constructs a large building to be used for the only planned purpose.
