“Now that the structural frame is complete, to wander inside a series of curved concrete ribs is something like it must be to see a whale skeleton from the inside. Herman Melville would be inspired.” Design Principal James von Klemperer

On September 26th Tianjin celebrates the Grand Opening of Riverside 66. The 350-meter long megastructrure will now complete the final phase of the He Ping Lu pedestrian boulevard, becoming the centerpiece of the new commercial district while marking its presence monumentally from the revitalized Hai He River and creating a new public experience for the city.“The project itself is conceived of as public space where the building intentionally engages the urban traffic and fosters user interaction,” says Jeffrey Kenoff, Director and Senior Designer at KPF. “Clearly the project needed to operate for a retail and multi program environment, but it also wanted to be a social network to embrace, represent and activate a local community.”

What happens when the artificial mixes with forces of nature; what if urban punks found themselves surfing in open sea or riding waves of magma?

The project for the Alingsås skate arena is a 12 minutes light show were we integrated the floor washing light of a sequence of about 20  Philips LED colour blast with the special projected effects of 4 Martin Moving Heads. Visual effects were highlight by two big Traxon mesh screen fixed on two opposite towers. The rhythm of the show, based on natural sounds, move the light from quiet, to shocking effects, moving light levels from daylight to darkness.

TianTai No.2 Primary School in Zhejiang, China by LYCS Architecture

Article source: LYCS Architecture

The project for the TianTai No.2 Primary School strives for a unique design that will serve as a model school which provides a beautiful environment for the cultivation of knowledge, culture,physical fitness, art and ethics for elementary school children. The project effectively solving the problem of  land shortage in the old city. The 200m running track calls for 40% of the land if we put the playground on the ground as the normal way, then the space of the campus will be very cramped. At the same time, it is necessary to ensure students a playground to have sports and activities. With land scarce, the 200m running track was projected onto the roof level, giving an additional 3000+ sqm of usable area on the ground as well as the oval shape of the school building, creating a sense of inwardness and security for the students. Lifting the running track also allows for a total project height of 4 floors instead of 5 as originally required, creating a more harmonious relationship between the new school and the surrounding urban context. In order to create more available green courtyard spaces, the building is twisted about 15 degrees, creating smaller pockets of space between the site wall and the exterior envelope.

As an oasis in the desert….interior oasis exterior oasis….just like an illusion….a powerful experience, to use, to be, to stay in, to see….

An oasis is an isolated place of a desert in which we found water and vegetation, that is to say more or less extensive portions of land fertilized by a water source in the middle of sandy grounds. in these places it can have small establishments inhabited; besides giving cultures to the near settlers, they serve to supply to the thirsty travellers and caravans; some times these were confused by optical illusions called mirages.
