Elite Equestrian Center in Navarra, Spain by Francisco Mangado

Sunday, July 5th, 2015

Article source: Francisco Mangado

The plot is in the middle of one of the most humid valleys of northern Navarre. A valley of gentle but sturdy hills, where the green pasture and oak trees configure a landscape of strong character, whose color changes with the seasons. A valley dotted with a system of small and relatively closely-woven urban cores, configured in an apparently random way. The buildings are formed of large unitary and isolated volumes that seem to touch, but that in truth compete with one another to show their bold architectural character. A boldness that draws on the climate conditions, but also on the production system – stockbreeding –, which in past times forced to accommodate in one same house people and animals. A boldness that is particularly evident in the roof, whose role is to bring together all the different contents. Boldness, in the end, of ‘Navarre’s buildings’. This is the context for an elite equestrian center specialized in dressage and with boarding stalls for horses: one of the strongest and most sophisticated forces created by nature.

On a site covering nearly seven hectares in the Cité Descartes cluster in Marne-la-Vallée lies the Pôle Scientifique et Technique Paris-Est (PST) which has been baptised the Espace Bienvenüe in memory of Fulgance Bienvenüe, inspector general of the Ponts et Chaussées engineering school and father of the Parisian metro system. The space completes the Cité Descartes that has been incorporated into this new town and meets the needs of the programme imposed by the Ministry of Ecology, Sustainable development and Energy. Its aim is to group together the Ministry’s training and research facilities on the Marne-la-Vallée site and create a centre of excellence focussed on the sustainable city.

Deakin Trade Training Centre in Victoria, Australia by Y2 Architecture

Article source: Y2 Architecture

The first indications that something special sits with Mildura Senior Secondary College can be seen from the surrounding streets where glimpses of a brightly coloured form can be caught between trees.  Drawing on references of the Australian shearers shed in its form and layout, activity flows around a central volume.  This nod to traditional industries is complemented with the centres use of modern materials along with bold statements in its forms and colours that recognises a continued nature of innovation and change within industry.

JACER – training center in Ústí nad Labem-město, Czech Republic by 3+1 architekti

Tuesday, December 2nd, 2014

Article source: 3+1 architekti

Originally a farmhouse, built in the second half of the nineteenth century in Předlice in the suburbs of Ústí nad Labem.

Under the communist regime it was occupied by agricultural cooperative which used the estate strictly pragmatically – only what was immediately needed was taken care of, the rest was neglected. Since the 90´s, the place was deserted and rapidly fell apart. Despite devastation of the area, there was still a strong sense of the original conception and smart design left.

Massive objects along the perimeter of the property define scale and space of the large yard area. Two of those – fifty meters long stables on the western edge of the property and sixty two meters long barn on the south – form basis of our proposal.

Urban Park

The site hosting Chennevières-sur-Marne’s future archery centre is located in an area of low popluation density of high vegetation quality. This vegetation gives the site the feel of a town park, which we felt it was important to retain.

The outer training field is treated as an integral part of the building. Its setting on the site is justified by the need to direct the shooting and the outdoor targets towards the north. The outdoor layouts, including a vegetated mound, are designed as an extension of the building.

New Technologies Training Center in Santiago de Compostela, Spain by Francisco Mangado

Friday, April 11th, 2014

Article source: Francisco Mangado

The proposal for the Center for New Technologies of Santiago de Compostela is based on two essential ideas. The first one springs from the conception of the place and its process of topographic adaptation, and the second entails a sense of efficiency. Efficiency having to do in this case both with the speed in which the project must be executed and with the fact, strictly functional, that the resulting building may need to undergo variations in program over the years.

Teacher Training Center in Granada, Spain by Ramón Fernández-Alonso y Asociados

Saturday, February 15th, 2014

Article source:  Ramón Fernández-Alonso y Asociados

The initial idea is to provide a closer architecture, almost family, in the composition of spaces as well as in the treatment of light and texture that provides the ceramic skin. The materiality of this building is linked from the beginning to the argument of the project process. Ground floor is projected as a threshold space compressed by the building itself in its upper floors.
