Newport Station Renovation by Grimshaw and Atkins

Thursday, February 24th, 2011

Grimshaw, in association with Atkins, has redesigned Newport Station as part of a citywide regeneration master plan by Newport Unlimited. Network Rail was the primary funder and client for the project with the Welsh Assembly Government also providing substantial financial support. While the need for regeneration of the station was created from the shortfalls of the existing facility, the impetus for its construction was the fact that the city was set to play host to the most prestigious tournament in golf, the Ryder Cup, in October 2010.

Holding Pattern in New York by Interboro Partners

Thursday, February 24th, 2011


“Holding Pattern” is the product of a sustained dialog with MoMA PS1’s courtyard and its neighbors. Instead of telling it what it should be, we patiently listened to what it and its neighbors had to say, then responded in kind. The result of this dialog is a scheme doesn’t so much redesign the courtyard as reveal it.

Vitra Fire Station in Weil am Rhein, Germany by Zaha Hadid

More projects by Zaha Hadid

We initiated our design with a study of the overall factory site. Our intention was to place the elements of our commission in such a way that they would not be lost between the enormous factory sheds. We also used these elements to structure the whole site, giving identity and rhythm to the main street running through the complex. This street – which stretches from the chair museum to the other end of the factory site, where the fire station is now located, was envisaged as a linear landscaped zone, almost as if it were the artificial extension of the linear patterns of the adjacent agricultural fields and vineyards. Thus, rather than designing the building as an isolated object, it was developed as the outer edge of the landscaped zone: defining space rather than occupying space. This was achieved by stretching the programme into a long, narrow building alongside the street which marks the edge of the factory site, and which also functions as a screening device against the bordering buildings.
