The Cosmic Gathering Place by jantzen studio

Article source: jantzen studio

The Comic Gathering Place was designed to provide a special public place, in and around which people could get together in a positive way for various social functions. This could range from religious ceremonies, to political affairs, or entertainment events.

Symbolically, the top of the Cosmic Gathering Place structure is shaped to refer to a large dish antenna that is able to gather information in the form of wisdom from the cosmos, in order to positively influence all who occupy the space. In addition, the concentric circles that form the entire structure inside and out symbolically refer to the information and energy being gathered and disseminated out into the community and to the rest of the planet.

Behind the somewhat mysterious name ‘Project X’, hides the design of René van Zuuk and his family’s own residence. The villa with a small office space is located next to the architect’s former residence Psyche, in Almere’s The Fantasy district, an area for experimental housing. His old house now serves as the architects office since 2004, it occurred that the two plots could be consolidated into one garden. The garden area is optimized by leaving only the width of a parking space between Project X and its neighbouring house.

Article source: gaupenraub+/- 

The new building is developed more like an annex than as a singular object – its appearance is more linked to its place of location than to its function.

The existing vegetation at the site are only trees without any bushes so there is a horizontal level of about two meters free-view on the whole open-air-museum which we didn´t want to disturb with our work.

Finaly the clients received a showcase-extension on these groundfloor forming a new open public yard together with the existing buildings.

This office with shed and youth centre is a stopping place in nature. It has two important neighbours: a regional nature centre and a sports hall, which it is up against so as to be able to benefit from the paving and the underground pipes. The answer to the respectively indifferent and educational setting of sports hall and nature centre is domesticity: a house was missing on the premises.

Cabin Ustaoset in Norway by Jon Danielsen Aarhus

A cabin for use all year. Situated 1066 meters above sea level, mid-way between Oslo and Bergen, at the foot of the mighty Hardangervidda – one of the greatest mountain plateaus in Europe. With no road connection, materials for the build was flown in with helicopter. The groundworks were done manually to preserve the slow-growing vegetation one finds at such altitudes in Norway. The foundation consists of pillars standing on the bedrock. The outside of the building had to be finished during the short summer months. The rest was completed mid-winter, when materials for the interior could be transported in with snow scooter. The cabin is clad in pine, inside and out. 3-layer, insulating and solar protected glass panels take in the view of the Ustevann(lake), Hallingskarvet(mountain formation) and Hardangerjøkulen(glacier), all in the same panorama.

Photovoltaic Ice Skating Rink in Kamchatsky, Russia by Margot Krasojevic Architects

Article source: Margot Krasojevic Architects

The ice skating rink is located on a natural lake in the Kamchatka peninsula, Russia. Kamchatka is positioned high in the mountains surrounded by volcanic terrain, nearby nature reserves, hot springs and scenic routes through the peninsula make the area popular with tourists and locals.

The lake is exposed to bright daylight with winter temperatures averaging 20 F, ensuring the lake stays frozen over the winter months, the ice rink uses photovoltaic cells to generate an electrical current in order to freeze the lake throughout the year or when needed for ice hockey tournaments, the rink is flooded from below the surface to keep it frozen and strengthen the ice. The project is multi-purpose, with an outdoor cinema and a natural geothermal spa, the design intends to reflect the fluid nature and ever changing state of the immediate environment. Geothermal turbines are also used to keep the lake at a frozen temperature and provide an energy source for the cinema. The precipitous mountain range has many natural hot springs and skiing ranges.

This is a residential house located in Gialai city, central Vietnam. The site is 7-meters wide and 40-meters deep, and is one of the typical lots for “tube house”, a traditional typology for residences in the province.

In this house, the long corridor, which is an unavoidable factor for tube houses to connect bedrooms, is transformed into a continuous and sequential space to serve the functions of living and dining spaces, as well as an “outdoor living” space.
