Entrances to the Tatra Mountains National Park in Zakopane, Poland by 2pm Architekci

Wednesday, January 20th, 2016

Article source: 2pm Architekci

The Park’s entrances are situated in a close vicinity to parking lots and public transportation stops where tourists start their visit to the Tatra Mountains National Park. They incorporate checkout desks, a tourist information (combined with a small bookshop), information boards, communications routes, resting spots, and toilets. The current buildings are more than a dozen years old, built in the Zakopane architectural style. They do not meet the requirements needed to serve touristic traffic. On the Park’s premises there are 17 such entrances, of different sizes. The competition work comprises the design of two of such entrances, Białego Valley (smaller) and Kościeliska Valley (of higher capacity), with the possibility of adapting them for the rest of the entrances.

Monmouth Battlefield State Park Visitor Center in Manalapan, New Jersey by ikon.5 architects

Monday, January 11th, 2016

Article source: ikon.5 architects

Monmouth Battlefield State Park Visitor Center is a portal and orientation to a historic battlefield that figured prominently in the American Revolutionary War.  The building replaces an underutilized structure built for the Bicentennial with a more open pavilion that places primacy on the landscape of the battlefield as an important artifact.   Through its siting and generous use of large expanses of glass, the pavilion dramatically changes the visitor experience and frames views of the battlefield that were previously obscured.  Sited at the top of Combs Hill overlooking the Battlefield, the pavilion is conceived as a modern day primitive hut, templar in its siting, but diminutive in its appearance. Like a floating cloud above the summit, the visitor center is a one story structure that creates a cantilevered roof solar shade that frames views and protects the exhibits from the sun. In addition to the solar shade, the design incorporates a number of sustainable features in achieving a LEED Gold certification. The majority of the exterior of the enclosure is triple glazed low-e laminated glazing units permitting the maximum views, but minimizing heat gain and lost. The new visitor center occurs within the bounds of the existing site and land is not additionally disturbed to commence with this project. The new visitor center and renovated portions of the existing building is heated and cooled with a geo-thermal system. Rain water is collected on the roof and is channeled into a rain garden feature at the entry to the visitor center. Natural grasses and flora are planted adjacent to the structure to minimize maintenance and to encourage indigenous birds and reptiles to live on top of Combs Hill again.

Ribeiro do Matadouro Park in Santo Tirso, Portugal by Oh!Land studio

Thursday, December 3rd, 2015

Article source: Oh!Land studio 

Contemporary problems need contemporary solutions. The challenge brought forth by this project is one of them. To overcome today’s disarticulated urban expansion that discourages natural resources and urban life, a proper discussion between members of a multi-disciplinary team is essential. For this reason this group of young designers came together in the attempt to create innovative designs that integrate natural and artificial elements into complete, multi-functional and sustainable urban systems that promote quality urban lifestyles in overall harmonic landscapes.

CHILDREN PARK at EXPO 2015 in Milan, Italy by ZPZ Partners

Tuesday, August 11th, 2015

Article source: ZPZ Partners

The Children’s Park, a linear garden with eight attractions on raised platforms, has giant bobbin-shaped elements in wooden lattice sheltering the exhibits and children’s activities from rain and sun. Fragments of domesticated nature where the natural and artificial coexist, the exhibits were designed to privilege the organic language of nature as opposed to a more formal architectural vocabulary.
