SEJONG-DAERO HISTORIC CULTURAL SPACE in Seoul, South Korea by Daniel Valle Architects

Sunday, March 6th, 2016

Article source: Daniel Valle Architects

The proposal for the Plaza ambitions to become a new type of public space in Seoul, one capable to absorb in one same place the memories and cultural heritage of the site, the exciting underground world of passages and connections and a creative and technological platform for learning and innovating.

To achieve this endeavor, we propose to keep thirteen standing columns of the former Japanese building as the only objects standing in the plaza. All other urban furniture are substituted by a soft curved rubber surface acting as seating areas for visitors who wish to sit and have a pause. The new surface of the Plaza acts as a platform to empower memories and nothing stands between the columns and citizens.

Memories can be recalled by direct visual connection with the former building’s columns and other cultural heritage around the site such as Deoksugung Palace’s wall. We propose a complementary digital layer of engagement with the site’s hidden meanings; a layer that allows citizens to receive digital information in the form of specifically designed APPs and augmented reality platforms that complement the visual perception of the site. The smart plaza will provide 5G WIFI connection for the better display of these services. The Plaza also wises to be a large mobile phone charge station. Electromagnetic fields embedded in the Plaza’s pavement create areas of wireless recharge for mobile devices.

The Marseille Grand Mosque in Marseille, France by Bureau Architecture Méditerranée

Saturday, November 29th, 2014

Article source: v2com

Our project integrates into its surroundings by respecting the urban fabric and existing buildings listed on the register of historic monuments. The use of the same type of stone, the preservation of existing buildings and respect for alignments all give the building an almost discreet character.

At the same time, the project establishes a strong identity, with the prayer hall and minaret recessed from the street.

The minaret and prayer hall are clad in white stone, symbolizing purity.

SAUNAS Y ESTANQUES EN ATACAMA in Chile by Germán del Sol

Friday, November 28th, 2014

Article source: Germán del Sol

To dwell in this vast land, men and women build graceful stone structures along the roads in Atacama, to get an insight into nature, and make it hospitable.

These concrete landmarks in the landscape, reveal the presence of water ponds used to irrigate the land, and to swim, and open up new perspectives to the immense wilderness around.

The water is kept still flowing gently over the ponds edges to reflect the light, and the beauty of the place, against the dark slate coating.
