Located on a 258,720 sf site along the north bank of Jang-Ji stream, Garden 5 Tool (originally called Dongnam Distribution Center) is a creative and unique solution for a mega-shopping center of specialty shops. To consolidate a large number of industrial goods retailers that are currently scattered in the central city of Seoul, the 2,893,440 sf commercial center houses approximately 1,500 shops. A supplementary facility, containing a fitness center, food court, office and officetel components, is also part of the program.

In 2009 Head of Roads Department of Georgia commissioned J. MAYER H. to design a system of Rest Stops for the new highway, which will run through Georgia and connect the Republic of Azerbaijan with the Republic of Turkey. Two Rest Stops are currently under construction and are scheduled for completion by the time the first section of the highway will be in operation in November 2011.

“All children are artists. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.” – Pablo Picasso
This project for a family coastal residence is located on a stunning isolated site in eastern Victoria on former farmland. The design is an investigation of how an idealised conception of “house” is transformed by its context and use. The site has extraordinary qualities: harsh prevailing winds of the Roaring Forties; sloping site; and sublime panoramic views from Cape Liptrap to Wilson’s Promontory. The residence required maximum flexibility as a beach home that could accommodate varying sleeping needs – anything from a single guest to burgeoning family summer holidays.

Kunshan City, China, is known as the birthplace of traditional Kunqu opera, and is renowned for its unique canal townships in the Yangtze River Delta. In 2008, the competition sponsor called for ideas for a new 955,000sm waterfront commercial district at a key oxbow portion of the Wusong River in order to support the area’s booming economy while creating public amenities and open space and ameliorating the effects of decades of industrial development.

Conversion and Extension of Sailer House, Salzburg
The owners of a Salzburg villa, wanted to add a weather-protected space that could be used all year round and would connect the house with the garden. Our main interest concerned the opening of the house to the south-sided garden. We created a large terrace reaching to the border of the property, on which we placed the garden room of glass and a pergola with tension ropes to provide shadow through plants or textiles. The arrangement of living room (music room), glass house, pergola, terrace, and a garden wall at the side-axis of the building create a chain of interwoven spaces, each closed and protected to a different degree.

In the dreamed and romantic palace park, designed by the famous classicistic landscape architect Peter Joseph Lenné, the appearance of the eight small bridges with different lengths, from 2 to 10 meter, should be very discreet and in harmony with the historical environment. Nevertheless we choose glass as building material as indication for our time and a modern building technology. During the day the transparent glass bridges are disappearing in the environment through their mirroring and reflecting. In the night they become visible through the magic light that they radiate from bellow.

Thinking about a modular, quickly deploy- able and adaptable bridge design a quite complex shape based on parametric design strategies and digital fabrication methods was developed. We started to parametrize points in X, Y and Z direction at relevant areas of a bridge in Rhino Grasshopper. Four points at the beginning and the end of the bridge and four in the middle. These 12 parametrized points give the opportunity to steer the crosssection of the bridge at three important areas. Based on these points the defi nition creates three frames one for each end of the bridge and one in the middle.

ARCHITECTURE & LANDSCAPE CONCEPT
To achieve the objectives of an architecturally iconic museum of art with versatile art exhibition spaces in a highly sustainable project this proposal defines the concept of art exhibition beyond the conventional “stuffy” notions of uniformly rectangular, windowless interior galleries. Instead, the project provides both interior and exterior venues for a variety of public experiences, and creates the opportunity for day-lighting and sustainability in ways that are unprecedented for art museums.

Our proposal for the New Taipei City Museum of Art is an open and welcoming design that erases the barrier of exclusivity normally surrounding the world of art, patrons, and experts. As such, the architecture of the New Taipei City Museum of Art is one that embodies this idea of erasure through eliminating the traditional borders between exhibition space and circulation, as well as exterior and interior. Every part of the museum is represented by a space without limits that can hold any type of expression.

In 1933 the Tennessee Valley Authority constructed a model community, Norris, Tennessee, as part of the Norris Dam construction project. A key feature of this New Deal village was the Norris House, a series of homes built as models for modern and efficient living. In light of the 75th anniversary of the Norris Project, an evolving interdisciplinary team of UT students and faculty are reinterpreting the Norris paradigm and creating a New Norris House – a sustainable home designed for the 21st century. In 2009 the New Norris House was one of six winners nationally of the Environmental Protection Agency’s People Prosperity and the Planet (P3) Competition. It offers a replicable model for contemporary sustainable living that holds the promise of significant benefit across East Tennessee.
