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.

"La Pista Magica" - the relevance of the historical track and the culture of sport is significant for the city of Milan. The concept of the design is to intensify the dynamic character of the high-speed cycling in respect to the historical building.   TWO circle-segments of the track will be preserved.

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 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.

APPROACH

The evolutionary history of the Ötztal and its inhabitants is characterized by an extreme topography, climatic conditions, and a landscape which is in a state of constant change. Innovative, clever, and resourceful, the residents have learned to deal with their demanding environment. The resident’s love and respect for their environment on the one hand, the economic benefits of landscape tourism and the threat of natural disasters on the other, makes the Ötztal an extraordinarily exciting terrain. The development of the valley through its history has been primarily based on the region’s constant state of challenge and adaptation. This complex and controversial situation has formed the basis of our concept for the Natural Park Association.

MORE IS DIFFERENT

Auf relativ kleiner Fläche weist Österreich eine vielschichtige Topographie mit einer entsprechenden Artenvielfalt und zusätzlich hoher Bio-Diversität auf. Diese spezifischen Voraussetzungen der Landschaft und der verantwortungsvolle Umgang mit ihren Ressourcen bilden die thematische Basis der Ausstellung und der Architektur.

Die Neuanlage der BMX-Bahn im Rahmen der Umgestaltung des Spekteparks - Berlin Spandau wird bewusst als Teil einer größeren Freizeitanlage gesehen.

Die Bahn wird hierbei nicht als Objekt in die bestehende Ebene gestellt und mit Absturzsicherungen von der Umgebung isoliert, sondern in die Topographie der künstlich angelegten Landschaft eingeschrieben und wird somit zum Teil der Parklandschaft.

The basic concept of the design, and what sets it apart from other contemporary cottage projects, is the creation of an ensemble. This creates a sense of scale and proportion appropriate to the site. The building is integrated into the landscape and becomes lost among the surrounding boulders and rocks.

The bridge adheres to the tradition of space framework bridges characteristic of the site. The structural system is an irregular steel truss with members optimized in orientation and cross section, while the top and bottom chord run the length of the bridge. The bridge is to be assembled using partial, prefabricated sections, simplifying fabrication and installation. The Elastomer-abutments are only stressed vertically, therefore allowing the concrete foundation to be minimal. The truss is tensioning over the river, allowing for a column-free span, maintaining a clear floodplain and avoiding the collection of debris.

Title: Obvious Personal Matters
Tutor: Kathrin Aste
Term: 2012
Institution: University of Liechtenstein

Mainimage
Intervention as food for thought: What happens when the borders of privacy are torn down, interior space becomes exterior and private becomes public? Personal matters  are demarcated from the public.Conversely, the environment reacts irritated as soon as personal matters are brought outside, diffuse into the public. The intervention follows the question how society protects its privacy and what characteristics and qualities private rooms develop. A radical incision into the facade of a partially unused building in the center of Dornbirn uncovers traces of the private.  The exposed architecture shows a legacy of mutual trust and secrecy.

The goal of the intervention at Eduard-Wallnöfer-Platz (Landhausplatz) was to create a contemporary urban public space that negotiates between the various contradictory conditions and constraints of the site and establishes a stage for a new mélange of urban activities characterized by a wide diversity. The realized project consists of a 9.000 square meter concrete floor sculpture.
