Pauhu – open stage and pavilion in Tampere, Finland by Tampere Architecture

 
February 20th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Tampere Architecture

Tampere Architecture Week is an annual event about architecture and urban planning, intended to add interest and discussion about the built environment. The theme in 2015 – interaction – aimed to increase the possibilities for interaction between citizens themselves and between architects and citizens. Functioning as an open stage for free expression and performance, Pauhu pavilion aims to highlight interaction as one of the most crucial subjects in our ever more privatised and secluded cities. The name “Pauhu” refers to the distant roar generated by the Tampere rapids, by the city around the pavilion, as well as by the artists and presenters the pavilion is hosting.  Pauhu was realized as a voluntary project as a part of Tampere Architecture Week bringing together architecture and design students and professionals in addition to number of different sponsors. The interlace of public, private and communal interests was essential and absolutely crucial in making Pauhu possible.

Salaino 10 residential building in MILAN, Italy by Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel and Partners

Article source: Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel and Partners

The operation calls for the urban renewal of the area and its conversion for residential use. The total reconfiguration of the volumes of the area has been made possible by the autonomous character of the construction, which is now an isolated building inside an enclosed garden, with walls along the street, and bordered by a transparent enclosure toward the greenery, permitting the residents to perceive it as a single green zone continuous with the Solari Park.
