Island bridge-city in New Zealand

The project presents itself the island bridge that could be built in New Zeland or elsewhere. It has got the honorable mention on 2018 MNPG Arch competition.  As we all know, Great Barrier Island is a place with long and curious history. Now it is a tourist center with wonderful landscapes. So we propose to shift buildings from the island to the bridge and make nature territory bigger. The main idea of our proposal is to create not just a bridge, but a bridge-city. That’s why there were used not just usual supports for the bridge, but support-skyscraper too. We propose to use 1 support-skyscraper like that on 100 km in the center of the bridge. Support-skyscraper is a vertical city with different functions. It looks like a gian... More

Noosphere - Interior of J57 skyscraper atriums

Noosphere is a possible new higher phase of biosphere evolution, which formation is thoroughly concerned with the evolution of human society, that has a strong influence on natural processes.   According to Ukrainian scientist V.I. Vernadsky, «there is a great geological or, maybe, cosmic force in biosphere, the planetary influence of which isn’t usually taken into consideration when we talk about cosmic conception… This force is the mind of human being, his or her rightly directed and organized will of a social creature». We have reflected this theory in our project proposal. The project is a 4th place winner of Sky City Challenge 2017:https://www.skycity.net/skycitychallenge17-winners More

Clear water bay road

Just an hour drive from the city centre of Hong Kong, the Clearwater Bay area is situated. These peninsulas, with their lush green hills, beautiful bays and little villages, are quite the opposite of the skyscrapers and city buzz of Hong Kong.   New World Development has been working on 'Mount Pavilia', an extraordinary new settlement wedged in between the rolling hills and existing villages, since 2014. Small scale, artisan crafts, community and shared facilities are important pillars of the concept of this new neighbourhood. Famous architects like Minsuk Cho (Mass Studies) and Adrian L. Norman (ALN) have contributed to Mount Pavilia, just like a number of internationally renowned artists. The White Yard Club and White Yard Gallery,... More

ThyssenKrupp Test Tower

Rising to a height of 246 meters the ThyssenKrupp test tower (TKT) in Rottweil, Germany, is one of the tallest structures in Germany.

PALETTE

Kansai-chuo Social Welfare Association  PALETTE   Architecture like an urban space where users can find a place to fit in   In a homogeneous space like an office, about twenty users were engaged in work; some were packing products in boxes at their desks, and some were processing parts for industrial products. One-half of them were working at an open desk, and the other half sat at individual desks with partitions so that no other people came into sight. Because they felt nervous about the visitors, high screaming came from individual cabins separated by piled up boxes and partitions. It was something I saw in the existing facility on an adjacent section before the design of the employment support facility PALETTE.   PA... More
