Built between two leaf-vegetable production warehouses, the idea behind this project was to locate the complex’s offices in a space that would draw attention to the constant interaction of the management departments in order to create a harmonious environment, moving away from the traditional office feel and toward a collective experience of working together with a shared purpose.

Industrial culture can only come about when existing economic and functional practical constraints are successfully transformed into multidimensional design.
The Funder Werk factory building, a paper coating factory, is functionally determined by the process of production. It was to be metamorphosed into “expressive architecture.” The design concept was based on the idea of dismantling the production hall into sculpturally shaped elements. During the design process, the power station with its chimneys, the media bridge, the flying roof, the office and laboratory areas, and the entrances emerged as differentiated, interconnected architectural elements that endow the complex as a whole with an unmistakable head and body. The playful sculptural evocation of the power station with the “dancing chimneys,” the media bridge as a connection between energy and production, the free design of the flying roof as “wings,” the shaped canopies of the entrances, and the corner of the laboratory and office areas dissolved in glass towards the south, all stand out against the hall, which has been consciously kept white and simple.

Production by means of regeneration
The minery is a global event that has constantly wasted the planet for a long time, now this is one of the most serious environmental issues in addition to this the remarkable overcrowding in cities which leads to higher energy costs and higher food consumption, is why the “GEA” initiative arises which aims to restore life to places inert victims of mining and exploitation and in turn make them fertile land for the production and the resurgence of habitat and the environment.
Due to the migration to the cities, human occupation of the territory is less, then large areas for food production, environmental remediation and biodiversity will be released.

The new district heating plant of chiusa looks like a big copper wing that comes out of the terrain.
The skewed roof surfaces create one dynamic volume, which seems like a shim between the viaduct and the old Gröden´s train line carriage house. From the main building’s entry you arrive directly to the visitors area, where a big glass wall gives visitors the view into the boiler house. To the west there is a wood-chips storage, to the east the main co-generation units; one stair goes to the first floor and creates a connection to the administration and toilet facilities.

Where there was once decomposed organic matter, now there is art, sports and leisure. It is the conversion of a sewage treatment plant into a multidisciplinary center.
After being built nearly two decades ago in Tlajomulco de Zuñiga, this place never really worked and saw its contents come into a rapid estate of decomposition. Years later, local authorities called for new meanings for the place, making it a great challenge.

The intention is to occupy anthropized contexts, where the green is extremely controlled or even absent, to make ready an infrastructure able to sew up again different economies (in a classical way) in a single system: a connection between flora, fauna and the urban landscape, in its different characters, physical and psychological. This project collects many aspects: it is a system, an ecology, a roof, a place.

Located on the Seine river front, close to a key metropolitan route (the Francilienne), évry water depuration plant is a major infrastructural element, whose stakes are environmental, technical, urban and symbolic. The first plant was built in the 70s and the aim of this renovation is to increase and optimize its capacity. The urban dimension of the equipment has guided us towards a strategy of opening-up and hospitality. Previously rejected and hidden, this infrastructure is now relocated on the urban scene, so to have a public role, and to reach a symbolic level. Regularly open to visitors, this equipment will become a landmark and a thematic park on the theme of water filtering. The formal strategy consists of a main axis along the river, along which gardens, new buildings and tanks are located. Buildings will be renovated and their façades completely redesigned as urban scale filters.

Making the invisible visible
While most sewage treatment plants are invisible to their communities and separated by a chain link fence, the LOTT Clean Water Alliance Regional Service Center is a visible and active participant in the public life of Washington’s capital city. The LOTT Clean Water Alliance provides Class A reclaimed water and emphasizes water conservation through a strong community outreach program, in addition to providing wastewater treatment services to 85,000 people in four local communities. The new facility, located on the site of its existing Budd Inlet Treatment Plant, brings all management and staff together in one location. The facility includes three major elements:
-a renovated 7,700 ft2 water quality laboratory
-a new 21,300 ft2 office
-a 3,500 ft2 education and technology center
