The Project Solana Ulcinj, curated by Bart Lootsma and Katharina Weinberger, is the Montenegrin contribution to the 15th International Architecture Exhibition of the Venice Biennale 2016.

The contribution COEXISTENCE approaches the project Solana Ulcinj in two different ways. The projected part of the exhibited work tries to raise awareness for the particularity of the site Solana Ulcinj.

An animation of a transforming point cloud shows the transcendence of this landscape structure and facilities. The footage of the movie is based on a 3D laser scan of the entire landscape. By descriping the landscape with a point cloud natural and artificial elements appear with the same coding and thus the boundaries between nature and artifice are constantly blurred. 

The second part of the project shows a sectional model which illustrates an architectural and spatial concept. This architecture with the program of a museum for contemporary art and nature should, on the one hand, utilize its role as an attractor to improve the region economically; on the other hand, it should be a space of contemplation in the context of environmental topics.

The program foresees intense workshops with invited guests, guest lectures and reviews in a well balanced mix of integrating international and local knowledge to contribute to the studio research, feed-back and dialogue. The studio makes extensive use of engaging modeling technologies by various means: reflecting abstractions of reality within the ranges of analytical data to conceiving architectures as dynamic responsive systems, and building speculative designs and narrations for modeling alternative realties.

Die Neugestaltung des Residenzplatzes versteht sich als konsequente Adaptierung auf der Basis einer zeitgenössischen Interpretation dieser grundsätzlichen Entwurfsparameter.
Die Haltung, den Platz als 5 Fassade zu verstehen, geht von einer Aufwertung des Bodendenkmals im Sinne des Kontextes aus. Obwohl die historischen Bezüge noch bestehen sind sie gegenwärtig an der Oberfläche nicht erkennbar. Um die Rezeption des Platzes zu klären ist eine Überführung der historischen Qualitäten in die Gegenwart notwendig. Dabei spielen nach wie vor Zahlenverhältnisse, Proportion und Geometrie eine zentrale Rolle in der Entwurfsgenese.

Honorable Mention

Der Entwurf sieht eine hoch verdichtete Blockrandbebauung mit großzügigem Innenhof und Stöckl Gebäude vor, welche auf die unmittelbare Umgebung der Typologie Wiltens reagiert. Trotz seiner Analogie zum gründerzeitlichen Blockrand bekennt sich das Projekt zu einer modernen Urbanität und zeitgenössischen Gestalt. Höhenentwicklung und Volumetrie orientieren sich an den Fluchten der angrenzenden Bauwerke.

Das Projekt Naturpark Ötztal basiert auf dem Konzept einer Architektur, welche im Kontrast zwischen natürlichen Bedingungen und kulturtechnischen Reaktionen steht. Der Geograph Kenneth Hewitt schreibt dazu treffend: "Most natural disasters are characteristic rather than accidental features of the places and societies where they occur.“ Durch das Konzept einer geomorphologischen Annäherung wird ein Gleichgewicht zwischen dem Design und der Diversität der Landschaft gesucht.

The missing head for the existing body

The structure of the existing Training Centre proves a disoriented, scalable architecture wherein the function cannot be expressed. The extension will change this and modernize the building in its entirety, without changing the existing building. The new building is located at the western end of the gym, the entrance is on the south, running parallel to the Inn promenade.

As regards our energy supplies, we have now reached a crucial turning point. For quite some time, industry across the globe has been showing a strong tendency towards renewable forms of energy to replace fossile engergy sources and nuclear power.
The advantages of renewable energy being widely known, large parts of the population strongly support its promotion. While in non-Alpine areas, it is relatively easy to plan and build such plants, the integration of renewable sources of energy in a sensitive and environmentally-friendly manner following environmental design ideas presents a great challenge in the Alpine zone.

All social and political dynamics are reflected in public space. Therefore public squares show the significant social, political and historic processes of change in our society. They contain the factors which form the city and its identity. Public spaces are, as well as social and communal platforms, stages of interpersonal and personal attention. Today, too, the square serves the public as a display of local foci, unanswered questions and developmental processes of society. The social function of the place is undisputed, its self-understanding is a prerequisite of democratic place. The gestalt of architecture generated the possibility for the square to meet this demand.

The Nature of Things

Das Gleichgewicht zwischen Architektur und Natur war Ziel der Gartenkunst vieler historischer Epochen. Betrachtet man einen idealen Renaissancegarten, so sieht man einen Raum, in dem Architektur, Kunst, Natur und Landschaft ein harmonisches Ganzes bilden, um dem Menschen den idealen Raum für seine Entfaltung zu geben. Leitmotiv des Entwurfs ist die Wechselbeziehung zwischen dem Künstlichen und dem Natürlichen. Diese Wechselbeziehung wird vorrangig bestimmt durch die Geometrie – das Maß der Erde, the Nature of Thing.

Basically, the concept pursues an urbanistic approach. In the sense of a bridge offensive, the project attempts to respond to the urban development goals. Issues such as Innsbruck to the Inn or the branding process using the
INNS'
BRUCK
- Logo, illustrate the importance of the river and bridge for this city.
In the sense of nomen est omen, the project considers the bridge as an identity-object. This design concept pursues this attitude and sees itself as the beginning of a medium-term bridge offensive.

Im zentralen Blickfeld der Sanierung des denkmalgeschützten Widums der Pfarre Vent steht die (Wieder-)Herstellung eines charakteristischen Gebäudes in der Gemeinde.
