Our intention in the ThyssenKrupp Elevator Istanbul Disaster Prevention and Education Centre Competition is to organize a joyful, integral space where man reconciles with nature.

ODAs Oscillate Series blends interaction and dynamism with practicality. Each piece shares a pivoting glass element that resonates collectively. The Oscillate Series is designed to underscore the easiness and lightheartedness of time spent at leisure, aiming to challenge the static relationships in furniture design.

Chinese calligraphy is mainly based in three characteristics: status of mind, line & color. These tree concepts triggered our original ideas for the Ordos Museum
The inhabiting/space populating logic in Inner Mongolia is grouping. Local herds of camels & horses used to browse the steppe in search for comfort. This comfort was only fulfilled when they would arrive to a DECISSION to settle in the landscape. In the same manner, the always present clouds populate the Inner Mongolian sky: groups of rounded & cotton locking clouds spread at the intense blue sky. Finally, also the original nomads will settle their yurts following a constellation. An primary impression of non-organization is quickly overcome by a self-organized logic. Here, the museum volumes have found their own space in the park. The logics of placement come from many different aspects: orientation, functionality, targeted visuals, public space, creating a unique orchestrated sequence of spaces.

Over the past twenty years Lille has become a European hub; a destination for business and congress, a great place to study and live and also a tourist destination. It is a city with a turbulent history of conquest and reconquest, a heritage as an important medieval city and later the industrial capital. It is this history, the unique and striking presence of remnants of ramparts of the citadel, which the project seeks to mention.

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.

The house is located in a private neighborhood outside the city, the land is flat and located in a corner, with neighbors to the south and east side, the west contains a large line of trees that separates the house from the street and takes a turn into the north where both entrances lie: one pedestrian and another one for cars, there are two bodies floating, the one on the left is a large box covered in gray stone that levitates over the street opening a gap where the cars are stored, the second body is transparent and light, larger and higher, which shows the pedestrian entrance, it is a volume of windows to the north and west sheltered by a white steel lattice, obeying the relationship with the sun, as this orientation is extremely hard in the city.

This is a remodeling project of the club stadium of the Bulgarianfootball club CSKA Sofia to meet Category four of UEFA stadium standards. It mainly includes a new addition of a visor roof over the existing 22,000 seats. The visor roof can be executed in metal sheathing or lightweight translucent tensioned membranes. The original structure was built in 1923 over dirt banks in the middle of Knyaz Boris’ Garden – the central park in Sofia, the capital city of Bulgaria. The last substantial remodel was completed in 1967.

“Forest of Art”
We proposed a place where a park, facilities and the around environment are mixing together like a forest for Ichiharashi-sui & Choukoku no Oka. The existing building at the site would be renovated to enhance the beautiful scenery of the park in front of the structure. Inside and outside, old and new would be harmonized as one space at the place. The condition could be explained as café ore, which is keeping a taste of coffee and milk, but also create a new taste as café ore.

(RE)Configured-Assemblage is a developmental landmark proposal composed of reconfigured traces of shipping containers, through diligently reconnecting, revitalising, and humanizing the accessibility of the City of Long Beach, Long Beach Blvd and Broadway Area. Through proposing three types of innovatively reconstructed modular shipping containers, the overall construct leads to open courtyards, interlocking units, and playfully generated programs that introduce a new innovative topological design that regenerates and reconnects the community.
