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).

A western district and villages terminal was designed in the west of the city, Kayseri. The idea of creating a district terminal came up due to the fact that the transportation access difficulty of the existing travel agencies in the area. Besides, the traffic density caused by the transportation vehicles in the city center is an another reason.

Rolling topography, open fields and woodlands comprise a 24 acre site in Rappahannock County, Virginia where this new house is located. Extensive site investigation, including erecting scaffolding at various locations, resulted in the placement of the house high on one of the hills, overlooking a meadow at the base of woodlands. The house is organized as a series of volumes, arranged linearly and positioned to optimize distant views of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

The original concept rises out of the major basis about color, and is that this cannot be taught or described. People are born with a special sense of color. Based on this idea, our intention was to create a facade out of the color model used in all printing systems, CMYK (Cyan , Magenta , Yellow and Key) for their best adaptation in manufacturing facilities. Parting from this initial palette we achieved a fresh effect with an organized structure that at some point breaks with the inclination angles of these colored stripes, changing the lineal effect of the material used in other facades of the building, compensating the lack of color and also maintaining the same visual effect of the vertical lines of the current material.

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.
