The Baljurk (Ball Gown) project by Archipelontwerpers

Monday, February 14th, 2011

The ‘Baljurk-project” (baljurk = evening-dress, ball gown) is situated in the centre of The Hague, next to the old Passage. The construction of the Passage in 1882 has transformed the urban tissue. Before this transformation there used to be a meandering transition between the two streets “Kettingstraat” and the “Achterom”, cause by the fact that the “Achterom” used to be a modest stream. This organic flow is unique in the context of The Hague’s rectangular lay-out. By consequence of the construction of the Passage this smooth transition was converted into a straight angle. The Baljurk-project is exactly placed on this corner.

“Belgrade Terraces” by Z&Z Design Studio

Monday, February 7th, 2011

Z&Z Studios have submitted a proposal for a public promenade in Belgrade, Serbia. Recent research shows that on the average foreign tourist question — what is it that it leaves the biggest impression when you visit Belgrade — in 95% of cases will tell you – people or citizens of Belgrade.

Bearing in mind this fact, the guiding idea of this project and have just been – the people.
New Belgrade large terraces are designed at the same time as new symbol of entering the old town and as a final solution for direct links between the two historical entities – Kosancicev venac and old Sava river port, tourist port Belgrade today.

The big challenge was at the same time to respect the old background ambient atmosphere, and the buildings of modern architecture.

Mill River Park in Stamford, Connecticut by Gray Organschi

Wednesday, January 19th, 2011

Through an open ideas competition, Gray Organschi was awarded the commission to design a threshold between a restored riverbank and an urban edge in Stamford, Connecticut.  Their urban porch proposal is composed of a shaded lattice formed from simple framing propped by gangs of timber pilings driven at slight angles to emulate the trunks of the trees in the meadow to the north.  Deep slender joists of standard dimensional lumber, bolted into pre-tensioned units, are aggregated and pulled taut to create an expanded grid of wood, the upward pressure of the timber tripods forcing the trellis to undulate slightly, a torsion fostered by the longitudinal geometries and connection system of the continuous timber frame.  Beneath it, a simple banding of concrete planks, interrupted selectively by broad joints of reinforced thyme and grass, provides a steady surface for strolling, seating and a chess game.



Pier C Park in Hoboken, NJ by Michael Van Valkenburgh

Wednesday, January 19th, 2011
  • Architects: Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates, Inc.
  • Project Year: 2009 – 2010

Pier C Park is located along the Hudson River Waterfront Walkway in Hoboken, New Jersey and is part of the city’s ongoing efforts to provide recreational open space at the water’s edge. An active recreation pier designed to accommodate users of all ages, the new park complements neighboring parks in program and form. Pier C represents a new generation of waterfront programming, defined by recreation and public access rather than industrial or maritime uses. The new pier sits within the rectilinear footprint of the long-absent original Pier C, with arcing walkways that capitalize on views to Manhattan as well as the active uses of the pier.

Hudson River Park, Segment 5 in New York

Thursday, January 13th, 2011
  • Architects: Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates, Inc.
  • Project Year: 2011 – 2010

Segment 5 of Hudson River Park runs from Pier 64 south to Pier 54 along the formerly industrial waterfront of the Hudson River. The northern portion of this segment, christened Chelsea Cove by the design team, will combine three individual piers into one of the largest open spaces within Hudson River Park. Chelsea Cove will feature a broad central lawn, reconnecting the vertical city with the drama of the horizon, as well as an enclosing grove that separates the park from the highway. The cove will include a skate park, a carousel, and an entry garden designed in collaboration with Lynden B. Miller. It also will include a landscape installation by environmental artist Meg Webster. Pier 64, which forms the north side of the cove, rises gently toward an elevated prospect, with privileged views up and down river, as well as back toward the city.
