Aarhus Harbour in Denmark by Dorte Mandrup Architects

Saturday, December 21st, 2013

Article source: Dorte Mandrup Architects

The jury characterizes the winning project as a “architecturally superior solution” to the task at hand.

The tower is shaped like a sharp origami cut, urban sculpture with a significant architectural expression. The white steel tower will stand out as a glowing landmark giving identity to the area and act as a point of reference and meetings in this new part of the city.

Malpica Harbour in A Coruña, Spain by CREUSeCARRASCO arquitectos

HARBOUR REMODELLING – MALPICA

This harbour redevelopment project, developed in conjunction with the Port Authority, is primarily focused on zones where public space can be created. The harbour was analysed as a place for interrelations and shelter, with the appeal of its fishing industry and its views; a unique location that makes its presence felt in the town with ramps, stairs and balconies. The linear nature of the horseshoe-shaped harbour is exploited to the utmost with a promenade, accessible at an intermediate level that runs along the cliff, resting on outcrops and wall tops which inhabit it in a sense.

Vellamo: Beacon of the Cityscape

Kotka’s Maritime Centre Vellamo fulfills a visual as well as a strategical function within the cityscape. The figure of the Maritime Centre guides travellers from the heart of the city out to the north-eastern end of the City Terminal and into a harbour of culture. The Maritime Centre is the hallmark of the city’s cultural profile. The role of an individual building in determining the direction of a city’s overall architectural development is nowadays recognised as a model for city planning. The Maritime Centre is a notable addition to landmarks associated with Kotka both nationally and internationally.

Competition Entry for Bispevika Development in Norway by PUSHAK

Tuesday, November 29th, 2011

Article source: PUSHAK

Rich nature meets rich urbanity of Oslo’s new social hub.

When this new harbour area is fully developed the opening to the fjord will appear relatively narrow. PUSHAK proposes a new road north-south that turns and opens to the fjord. Three courts open towards – and frame – the view to the islands. The three water basins serve as a physical separation between the busy public spaces outside the courts, and the courtyard which only belongs to the residences. At the same time a tension is maintained between public and private: a glimpse into the lush dwelling yard, a look out on the city’s pulse. A number of pavilions add to the filtering between public and private, as well as creating a sunny wall to sit against for enjoying a cold drink on summer days.
