Swimming pool complex Campedelli

The project for the new swimming centre of Carpi, situated between the city’s residential and productive zones, involved a complete rethinking of the pre-existing structure, a new dimensioning of the water spaces, rationalization of the connecting rooms and identification of new accessory and complimentary activities that would make the sports complex more suited to current and future needs. The volume of the building, compact towards the city and open with great windows towards the internal park, underlines the dialogue between interior and exterior. The east and west walls, entirely in glass, permit natural illumination of the pools area and the external adjustable brise soleil system modifies the ingress of sunlight on the basis o... More

Embracing a diversity of users and programs, Denmark’s Roskilde Waterscape by JAJA Architects and CREO ARKITEKTER sees the transformation of a 1960s water tower into a cohesive spatial experience that integrates existing buildings, good daylighting, and new connections to the surrounding park landscape.  Laura Stamer The site’s found condition included an accumulation of eclectic structures.

Casa Mirador

Fes Aqua Park Complex

Fes Aquapark Complex is located in a 10000 square meter site near thermal bath fountains in Fes, Morocco. In the programming phase, we studied Fes vernacular architecture, climate, politics, history, and culture. We focused on the fundamental components of Fes and tried to design by using its characteristic elements. One of the most significant concepts derived out from Fes was the Maze, which refers to the chaotic infra-structure of the city. Another concept which contributed most to the design process was the hybrid character of the Morocco architecture affected by different cultures like Barbarians, Spain and Islamic countries. Consequently, Fes Aquapark Complex defined as a Hybrid Maze to celebrate its context cultural attributes.Head A... More
