AN URBAN BIOSCAPE
While society is becoming more complex, two social dynamics could have an enormous incidence in the way that public space will perform in the future. People have a growing concern about environmental matters while an increasing access to information in real time ( and to the mobile media technologies that make it possible) are defying the classical conception of public space, redefining our expectations and confronting it to evolving demands for a wide range of new social experiences.

Instead of the image of an hermetic pavilion, here the intention is to give continuity from the inside space to the outside one.
The building is implemented to bury the court and the locker rooms. The schema allows to go through, without visual barriers, from the park to the covered platform, to the stands, and finally descending to the court.

The project’s design and planning focus on a thorough understanding of the local context. The building responds to existing scales. Its location and architecture denote the space´s public nature and inject new life into the site. By taking surrounding public spaces into consideration when designing the project, we reinforced the notion that this building is a public facility, a landmark within the surrounding disorder. So as to allude to a mind’s eye view we asked ourselves how we could draw attention to the building without stirring up too much controversy.

On numerous occasions architecture is the result of the negotiation conducted between key interlocutors (in this case, the architects and proposals) and the different types of space involved: the original space to act on, the determining and judging outer space, and especially, the new space to be generated.

Out in front of the Maison des Hommes et des Techniques, this basketball tree offers a new type of sports equipment that can be used by just about anybody! Upon first glance, it’s clear how different people can play simultaneously. Basketball hoops branch out of different parts of a tree at varying heights allowing for multiple teams of different ages to play.

This project is an award-winning youth recreation center, and sports facility in the Town of Falmouth. The site is a long, sloping slice of land between an existing gymnasium, and the playing fields. We designed the new building to re-establish the privileged viewing position that the original building enjoyed. Generous amounts of glass are set into a wall clad with concrete panels. The inside gathering space allows spectators to watch as teams trot to the fields, play their game, and return in victory (or defeat).
