Accordingly to the size of the structure, the shutter units could differ in size, and where possible even in form. Freeform structures could benefit from this as well. Unlike lamellas or shading screens, smaller units allow local response and higher shading quality. Responsive shading systems have been emerging over the past few decades. However, they share the common problem of using sensors, electronic, motors, and external energy sources which require frequent maintenance.

Initial model of shading units: the air container in front features its particular shape for a greater surface to volume difference, in order to cool and heat up more quickly. The pneumatic actuation system uses reverse umbrella mechanics for opening the shutter units. Diffuse lighting penetrates the shading system in order to optimize daylight usage, and the reduction of artificial lightning. The shutters are displayed in one of the possible arrangements, and material execution.

Project entry 2014 Europe – The Commons: Participatory urban neighborhood, Vienna, Austria
Liquid city: Instead of a predesigned urban tissue, a controlled growth process is proposed. The initial grid of gardens is the support of the urban, which will develop in time through small-scale gradual appropriations. The result will be a liquid city that works as a complete urban configuration in all stages of consolidation, satisfying the current societal needs, but is also able to adapt itself to any contextual change or future necessities.

Land consumption is minimized in favor of green space, keeping a respectful attitude towards the existing landscape as well as the environment, but always without losing compactness and density. Diversity of actors and investment capacities are represented here, generating a multi-scalar intervention.

The project’s main concept is to reuse power plants’ reject water in a mixed-use infrastructure to convert salt water to potable water for the city while sustaining a salt marsh garden around the buildings by releasing a brine aerosol micro climate. The garden extends the local nature reserve and hosts a new walkway. Salt water release is designed to preserve the timber building by keeping it perpetually moist. The same water source warms a public bathing pool on the rooftop via heat exchangers.

In a simple technology setup, water runs through pipes and depressurized containers, trades heat and shows off its many forms. The layout of buildings follows the linear nature of the desalination process and forms an additive composition to create sheltered pockets for a garden. The new water infrastructure generates and sustains the place in which it is situated. In this small public utility urban, industrial and coastal ecologies are considered to highlight the strong interdependencies of their coexistence.

Plentiful rainwater will be used by two concrete plants at the site which consume hundreds of thousands of liters of water annually for the production of concrete and rinsing their installations. Production of electricity with solar panels is utilized on-site through lighting, machinery, charging electric forklifts, etc, and since surplus electricity has to be paid to the net administrator, it is economically more self-sustaining to share the energy with the neighborhood.

Project entry 2014 Europe – Vertical Restructuring: High-rise tower rehabilitation, Nantes, France
These sections show all the density of the rehabilitation of this single purpose 1970s tower. The pursuit breaks with the horizontal accumulation of floorspace and creates new experiences by mixing vertical and horizontal spaces/links. A mixed-use program of habitation, hotel, office and public space is interwoven in the concrete skeleton of the tower. In between spaces are managed by patio and the thickness of façades. The 4 pillars free the ground and create public spaces.

Project entry 2014 Europe – Vertical Restructuring: High-rise tower rehabilitation, Nantes, France
The project speaks about a new relationship between the city and the inside of the tower. This link doesn’t go through a new cladding, but by a new in-between space with a different thickness depending upon its use. Inside this thickness there are patios, stairs and decks – all the vertical communication is focused on the façade: seen from outside and bringing life to the building. Moreover this element manages all the thermal needs and allows people to have access to open air despite the height.

Project entry 2014 Europe – Aggregate Structure: Reusable aggregates requiring no binding agent, Stuttgart, Germany
An aggregate vault is made from a large number of designed particles, solidifying merely by frictional contact. The interlocking granules are poured over a formwork made of snow, ice, sand or a fluid designed aggregate. The load-bearing structure then makes up only 10-20% of the entire construction volume. Both structure and formwork are fully recyclable. The construction process itself is very rapid as the aggregate instantly stabilizes. (Image © ICD Stuttgart)

Project entry 2014 Europe – Aggregate Structure: Reusable aggregates requiring no binding agent, Stuttgart, Germany
The aggregate structures are self-supporting and require no further binding agent. The construction process can be either low-tech manually or high-tech digitally controlled. Variances in density of the granulate allow for the variation of material properties, such as thermal insulation or luminance effects. The designed aggregate thus allows for functional grading of architectural performance criteria within one and the same material system. (Image © ICD Stuttgart)

Place: the dominant architecture in small towns are panel houses up to 5 floors high. Their simple forms prompt use of constructivism stylistics in Point buildings. All public centers, regardless of the region of construction will have a high accent – a tower in which it is possible to walk upstairs and to look at the town: with all its demerits and, at the same time, prospects. Self-irony plus belief in the better future you can find in this building’s look.

Combination: the main difficulty in sustainable building design is combining the maximum from all factors in one space. The project tries to do that by dividing Point public center into two parts. First part is heated and contains public places like forum with folding screen, café and game zone. Second one is unheated and contains ecological systems of equipment. Also eco-parts were added such as heat-accumulating wall to public part and an observation area to equipment part for ecological education.
