The multi-use complex proposed for this 32.000m² lot aims at creating not only a new architectural reference for the region, but also a new destination for the city. Adding three different uses – retail, office buildings and modular offices – the new complex creates a landmark in the landscape, values the surroundings, and establishes a new shopping destination.

While looking for an architectural form we have faced a task that a simple and unpretending building reflecting its purpose would look appropriately in the neighbourhood of office buildings of an absolutely different scale. Even the so far smallest Brumlovka fitness building was much bigger. We found a generous format of a single ‘window‘ into the pronaos, an exterior covered open vestibule in front of the entrance, as the means of balancing the surrounding buildings‘ scale. Its horizontal proportion is directly derived from the elementary prism of the whole building, also horizontal one and of the same dimension. The window is the key motive of the façade and the whole building; figures of people passing behind or standing here are partly hidden from the busy street life behind a screen of bamboo trees.

This work represents the idea of dynamics in sport with the abstract compositions of the staircase and the reception table. The first object you encounter is the introverted desk with its never-ending fissure, and then you meet the extroverted staircase – like the open path to Olympus, where the summit meets its own reflection, inferring that striving never ends, that there is no limit to human achievement.

Sustainably repurposing urban piers.
Proposed for the decommissioned NYC Department of Sanitation Marine Transfer Station pier, this community center for Harlem and Nourishing NYC is both an urban farm and transportation hub. Situated on the New York City’s Hudson River Greenway, Harlem Piers Farm, with outdoor gardens, an all-weather greenhouse and barn is a community farm and educational center. The cafe and pedestrian plaza offer a relaxing place to take in the view for or those arriving by foot, bicycle, small boat, water taxi or bus and is conveniently accessed from NY’s west side. Harlem Piers Farm is a working example for the community of all encompassing sustainability – growing food, collecting its own irrigation water, and generating its own electricity and hot water.

Magdeburg, founded upon the Elbe River, has a history of scientific innovation. The scheme takes the existing bland, but quite functional campus and adds a series of gathering spaces. These linked spaces continue eastward to form the framework for the future development of a tech center, while also connecting to the historic harbor and the riverfront. This forms a car free spine that brings together diverse users to mingle in a series of mixed use spaces. Additionally, new pathways complete a previously broken link in the green network of the city. The signature element along the spine is a covered public forum that resides adjacent to the pedestrian underpass and is topped by a cinema and conference center.
