The Infoversum is unique, not only because of its fluent design and the unusual techniques being used, the exploratory and inviting role it will play in the community also make it special.
Conveniently located near the centre of Groningen,the Infoversum cannot be overlooked. It is a building that makes one curious and that needs to be explored. Never before have so many different fields of expertise, goals and techniques successfully been combined in one design.

CEBRA has completed a public sports facility in the Danish town of Løgstør based on the office’s“Meccano concept” for unheated, low-cost and lightweight sports halls. The concept uses construction principles and elements otherwise known from industrial buildings and warehouses – that is standardised off-the-shelf components. The idea is that these simple elements can be refined and combined in new and surprising ways – just like the Meccano model construction system – in order to create architecturally appealing, accessibleand easily adaptable sports facilities, which are cheap to build and maintain. The concept has been developed in collaboration with LokaleogAnlægsfonden (the Danish Foundation for Culture and Sports Facilities).

Topology of Resilience
On November 9, 2013 the devastating Typhoon Haiyan hit the Philippines, causing more than 5,000 deaths and destroying the homes and cities of millions. Natural disasters due to climate change have become extremely commonplace all over the world. We can’t do much to stop them, but as architects we can help design and build stronger and more resilient buildings to withstand them. As part of a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) by OOAc in support of the Typhoon Haiyan victims, the objective of this project is to generate a design concept for a typhoon-resilient school to be implemented in the affected area of the Philippines, where sadly over 4,500 schools have been destroyed by the massive storm.
