Fitness Park Einstein in St Gallen, Switzerland by Damir Masek (designed with FormZ)

Tuesday, April 24th, 2012

The heart of the five story Fitness Park Einstein beats as a hovering water crystal pool, flooded with the light of the overlying atrium. Above the three-story cascade steps of the fitness center floats the transparent and/or translucent basin. This focal point motivates the fitness customers, and tells of a promise, which will redeem. The horizontal, translucent screen under pool’s transparent, acrylic bottom can be used flexibly.

Nature Museum St.Gallen in Switzerland by Kit

Wednesday, February 15th, 2012

Article source: Kit

The project for the Nature Museum St.Gallen is conceived as a continuation of the surrounding landscape, an interplay between building mass and topography. Similar to a tectonic shift the volume is divided in to two mutually deformed parts. The resulting plan figure orients itself along the two dominant urban axes: the main road to Rohrschach and the diagonally crossing highway A1. The staggered volume of the building defines clear exterior spaces and anchors the building in its urban context.
