Sports and leisure pool complex in Brauhausberg, Potsdam, Germany by gmp

 
January 11th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: gmp

The new development is located in a central position at the foot of the Brauhausberg, a traditional leisure andb day-trip destination, and the established location of the city’s largest swimming pool complex. As a multifunctional building for all activities involving water, the new pool complex offers significantly more facilities compared to the popular but outdated existing facility built during GDR times. The public municipal baths are expected to draw increasing numbers of visitors and, on that basis, occupy a key position for preserving the special qualities of this part of the city, which – in the wake of numerous new construction projects – is experiencing a revival.

Article source: Open Source Architecture

SlrSrf is a compact project that embeds performance characteristics into the architectural surface. Optimization of the roof as a solar receiving surface for photovoltaic electrical production generates the form of the 450 square foot (42m2) addition and renovation of an existing house in Culver City, California.  Coupling the client’s desire to create a net zero electrical consumption with the generation of the form provides an opportunistic strategy to integrate performance with the sculptural nature of the architectural entity.
