It is possible to say that cities are made out of different contextual layers which time by time come near each other or on top of each other, even intertwine at times and ground their specific existing states. In the Yalova example peculiar to this city, oppositions between the main layers stand out.

This Centre of the Dramatic Arts presents itself to the city as a platform, as an urban stage with the city and landscape as backdrop.
The interior roofed patio, generated by a three-dimensional folding of the wooden surface of the roof, is conceived as a scenic box that opens up towards the city and affirms itself as the building’s spatial reference point, a place for relationships and interchange.

The Sovereign pop venue is an icon for musical expression, situated at a prominent location in Hilversum. It lies within walking distance from the railway station, at a major crossroads in the inner-city road network, and is clearly visible from the train. As a consequence, the front on the Koninginneweg is the most important façade: it is The Sovereign’s visiting card.

In many years the attention has been aimed at the site adjacent, where the UNESCO World Heritage site, Kronborg Castle, which is famous for its role in Shakespeare’s Hamlet, exerts its magnetic pull on both tourists and local citizens of Elsinore – but now Elsinore’s old shipbuilding yard has been transformed into a 17.000m2 cultural and knowledge centre, including concert halls, showrooms, conference rooms, a dockyard museum and a public library. The Culture Yard symbolizes Elsinore’s transformation from an old industrial town to a modern cultural hub. In this way, the yard is designed as a hinge between the past and present, reinforcing the identity of the local community, but at the same time expressing an international attitude, reinforcing the relation between the local and global community.

Here, visitors are introduced to the relevant science, art and culture that will enhance their experience in Red Rock Canyon; strongly encouraging them to visit the nearby real thing.

Given the national importance of the public space issues and the opportunity they present in promoting the city of Soverato, the new project aims to find a solution for city areas which will hopefully enhance the quality of urban life. On the other hand, it aims to establish a strong link with the dynamics of contemporary society through functional solutions that meet the needs of the day and night activities of the neighborhood. The building attempts to revive an entire urban area through a series of coordinated actions, implementing the best design solution that combines the diverse needs of rationalization of traffic and the revitalization of commercial, industrial and cultural sites.
