  • Volcanic Visitor Centre Winners

    VOLCANIC VISITOR CENTRE WINNERS RETHINKING ARCHITECTURE. CREATING A PLATFORM FOR ARCHITECTS & STUDENTS TO EXPLORE THEIR CREATIVITY 1st Prize 2nd Prize Honourable Mentions Inspiration Gallery USE THIS PROJECT & SITE ANALYSIS FOR YOUR THESIS / UNIVERSITY / PROFESSIONAL PROJECT All of our project briefs and all resources can be used independently or as part of your educational and career progression. University Thesis | University Project | Portfolio Development | Professional Development | Extra-curricular activity No product Add to Cart THE BRIEF Challenge: to design a centre where both tourists and guests of the retreat can enjoy a meal and a sensory day together in this fantastic location. Our Visitor centre and Retreat for the Blind ask for a unique, dynamic piece of architecture that provides a tactile and sensory journey for those who are visually impaired. THE SITE Iceland's unique and unforgettable geography is defined by volcanic mountain peaks and ice fields, with a coastline marked by fjords (deep shafts marked by glaciers) and black beaches. Reynisfjara beach is Iceland's most famous and most visited black volcanic beach, located in the southern part of the island, near the small village of Vik. It is one of the most popular locations in Iceland due to its black sand and its contrast with the white snow and ice in winter, violent waves, and basalt formations. The combination of these factors makes Reynisfjara beach one of the most beautiful examples of Iceland's rough geography. 1st PRIZE THE WHALE Vladislav Rakitin Winner Sau THE WINNING DESIGN SCHEME THE WHALE ​ The Black Sand Beach has a very unusual atmosphere. Sharp rocks, black sand, large waves and basalt columns give the place a primitive, ascetic and mysterious spirit. Such a cold atmosphere scares and attracts tourists at the same time. Only in such places can a person feel like a primitive man who was left alone with nature. This is the main feeling that the project wants to convey to tourists. The rocky walls and warm light in the interior create the atmosphere of a cave house, and the black polished metal embodies the future evolution of mankind. Panoramic glazing and transparent pylons erase the boundary between the indoor and outdoor environment. This allows you to combine the interior with nature, to give visitors a complete immersion in the environment. Smooth metal and embossed walls give a tactile connection to the visually impaired, which helps them feel the space. There are also ledges on the floor for them, which facilitate orientation and movement in the center. Tactile plaques with relief drawings are located around the pavilion. This makes it possible for the blind to imagine the surrounding natural landscapes and the image of the pavilion. Therefore, the image of the center has a simple form. Iceland is known not only for its unique nature, but also for amazing animals. Some such animals are an integral part of Icelandic culture. One of these animals is a whale, the image of which is used in architecture. The basis of the building layout is a ramp. This creates more convenient movement not only for the blind, but also for people with limited mobility. Also, the ramp facilitates orientation in the building, since all the premises of the center are visible from it. There is a cafe at the head of the building. Since there are strong tides on the beach, it is impossible to place the building close to the water. Therefore, the floor of the cafe is sunk into the ground to visually bring the cafe closer to the water. The remaining rooms are located in the underground floor. There is a museum under the cafe, which continues in a two-light space. The exhibits can also be viewed from above by walking along the ramp. The dining room is located in a separate part. In the dining room there are places for small groups of tourists and for large ones. 2nd PRIZE 1st PRIZE Winner 2 THE VOLCANIC VISITOR CENTRE Yulia Sadchikova HONOURABLE MENTIONS 3 prize Honourable Mention for Architectural Mer F L O E I N N I Ð U R Aleksandra Maszczyk Honourable Mention for Concept ABANDON AND SEEK Xu Zhilei, Cheng Xianzhe, Zhang Qian, Wang Jue Honourable Mention for Architectural Journey BASALTROLL Julia Hetmaniuk Available Projects & Site Analyses Quick View Thesis Projects Price £99.00 Add to Cart Quick View Unlimited Competitions Price £299.00 Add to Cart Quick View Quarry Site Analysis Price £29.00 Add to Cart Quick View Quarry Competitions Regular Price £189.00 Sale Price £149.00 Add to Cart Quick View Scandinavian Fjords Competitions Regular Price £149.00 Sale Price £119.00 Add to Cart INSPIRATION GALLERY We are so proud of all the work submitted and the amount of thought given to each of the schemes.

  • Suspended Sleeping Pod Competition Winners

    SUSPENDED SLEEPING POD RETHINKING ARCHITECTURE. CREATING A PLATFORM FOR ARCHITECTS & STUDENTS TO EXPLORE THEIR CREATIVITY 1st Prize 2nd Prize 3rd Prize Inspiration Gallery USE THIS PROJECT & SITE ANALYSIS FOR YOUR THESIS / UNIVERSITY / PROFESSIONAL PROJECT All of our project briefs and all resources can be used independently or as part of your educational and career progression. University Thesis | University Project | Portfolio Development | Professional Development | Extra-curricular activity No product Add to Cart THE BRIEF This design challenge asks for a 2-person sleeping pod that can be suspended on a cliff face or balance on a mountain ridge. The fully sustainable and self sufficient design should provide a comfortable, safe space to sleep 2 people and a dog. The design will provide a connection between humans and nature and considers its impact on the surroundings including construction, materiality, ecology and views. THE SITE Tavertet is a small mountain village at the top of the Guilleries Natural Park, nestled within the Catalan Pre-Pyrenees mountains. The Pre-Pyrenees consist of large groups of low, undulating mountains at the base of the much taller, much sharper Pyrenees, which create a natural border between Spain, France and Andorra. The village of Tavertet is extremely well taken care of by its (just over) 100 citizens. The older buildings are well preserved and the newer buildings pay tribute to the ancient architecture the village hosts. The Tavertet region is home to remains of a 12th century castle, and most of the town's historic centre was erected in the 17th and 18th centuries. The historic centre is now listed as a Site of Cultural Interest . 1st PRIZE HARMONÍA EN LAS ALTURAS O•REM Emanuele Cipolla, Raúl López Andrés, Manuel Splendore ​ Instagram Winner Sau THE WINNING DESIGN SCHEME HARMONÍA EN LAS ALTURAS The project aims to create a closer and stronger relationship with the surrounding nature, where the harmony of all the parts in its context makes it unique among the Spanish mountains. The concept is centered around a suspended pod, which has been positioned to optimize solar energy usage and create an intimate connection with the Tavertet cliff. The orientation of the project is carefully considered to maximize energy efficiency. The utilization of amorphous solar panels on the roof and the integration of passive ventilation into the design, allows for the pod to operate with minimal environmental impact. The strategic placement of the pod also provides stunning views towards the landscape of Guilleries and Tavertet, further enriching the connection with the surrounding nature. The objective of the project is to recreate the forms that are inherent to the identity of the location, placing nature before human intervention. This will initiate a rediscovery process of the natural environment, which will result in not only benefiting nature but also enhancing the economic sustainability of Tavertet and its surrounding cities, with more responsible tourism. The unique shape of the pod is inspired by the barrel vaults of ancient structures, while its catenary form not only nods to the Catalan modernist architecture of Gaudí, but also serves a functional purpose. The shape facilitates the management of rainwater, collecting it in a collector beneath the floor, ensuring a constant availability of water. The project prioritizes sustainability, using locally sourced materials and incorporating a prefabrication and standardization approach. The construction process is efficient, requiring a single day to complete it, making the most of the materials present in the surrounding nature such as earth, stones, dry straw, and wood. The project presents a load-bearing structure made up of two main materials: wood and rammed earth. The two materials work together and at the same time have been contrasted to help balance the overhang and to create a philosophical contrast between ground connection and lightweight in the cantilever part. The design also emphasizes eco-sustainability, utilizing recycled polycarbonate materials. The project is grounded in a deep respect for nature, supported by six steel pillars that minimally impact the surrounding environment. The design aims to create a stronger bond between the pod and nature, providing a space for reflection and connection with the unspoiled beauty of the surrounding landscape. In addition to its environmental sustainability and its harmonious relationship with the surrounding environment, the design of the pod also prioritizes the comfort and well-being of its occupants. The orientation of the pod has been carefully considered to make the best use of solar energy, and the design incorporates passive ventilation, allowing for a comfortable and healthy living environment. In conclusion, the project is providing a sustainable, comfortable, and harmonious living environment that is intimately connected to the surrounding landscape and rich cultural heritage. It offers a space for reflection, connection with nature, and a sense of place, providing an unparalleled experience in one of the most beautiful regions of Spain. 2nd PRIZE 1st PRIZE Winner 2 THE ARCHITECTURE OF THE SENSUAL Victor Migirov, Nil Marianov, Leonid Shvets ​ Instagram 3rd PRIZE 3 prize CASITA EN LAS ESTRELLAS Lauren Mendoza, Logan Smith Available Projects & Site Analyses Quick View Thesis Projects Price £99.00 Add to Cart Quick View Unlimited Competitions Price £299.00 Add to Cart Quick View Quarry Site Analysis Price £29.00 Add to Cart Quick View Quarry Competitions Regular Price £189.00 Sale Price £149.00 Add to Cart Quick View Scandinavian Fjords Competitions Regular Price £149.00 Sale Price £119.00 Add to Cart INSPIRATION GALLERY We are so proud of all the work submitted and the amount of thought given to each of the schemes.

  • Tavertet Cliff-Edge Hotel Winners

    TAVERTET CLIFF-EDGE HOTEL RETHINKING ARCHITECTURE. CREATING A PLATFORM FOR ARCHITECTS & STUDENTS TO EXPLORE THEIR CREATIVITY 1st Prize 2nd Prize Public Favourite Honourable Mentions Inspiration Gallery USE THIS PROJECT & SITE ANALYSIS FOR YOUR THESIS / UNIVERSITY / PROFESSIONAL PROJECT All of our project briefs and all resources can be used independently or as part of your educational and career progression. University Thesis | University Project | Portfolio Development | Professional Development | Extra-curricular activity No product Add to Cart THE BRIEF This design challenge asks for an inspiring sustainable hotel that will sit high in the Pre-Pyrenees mountains gazing across the dramatic landscape within the Les Guilleries natural park, Catalonia. ​ The challenge is to create a sustainable, environmentally conscious structure, or set of structures that sit peacefully, teetering at the edge of the cliffs, providing an emotive experience for visitors. The design should take its inspiration from the natural setting and connect with its surroundings, allowing visitors to have an immersive experience, both inside and outside of the hotel, of the dramatic scenery and wildlife that surrounds them. THE SITE Tavertet is a small mountain village at the top of the Guilleries Natural Park, nestled within the Catalan Pre-Pyrenees mountains. The Pre-Pyrenees consist of large groups of low, undulating mountains at the base of the much taller, much sharper Pyrenees, which create a natural border between Spain, France and Andorra.

The Tavertet region is home to remains of a 12th century castle, and most of the town's historic centre was erected in the 17th and 18th centuries. The historic centre is now listed as a Site of Cultural Interest . 1st PRIZE SETSUZOKU 101 Design Studio ​ Usman Haider , Hossam Anwar , Ammara Majeed ​ Winner Sau THE WINNING DESIGN SCHEME SETSUZOKU Design Process Using the natural environment, we have kept the topography in mind in order to create an urban scape which gels in with the cliff. As to the design schemes light was kept as a crucial factor in deciding shapes and natural light slits all over the design scheme. An architectural statement was considered for the current times allowing people to view the meditation space, A stone monolith with peeking light voids stands as a giant reflection plane bringing in a stark presence yet camouflaged with the environment. A ramp leads users on a journey from the entrance wing, which hosts a restaurant serving users with local cuisine and the option to cater locally picked fruits and mushrooms by the guest. Underneath that built surface is a cantilevered pool jutting out of the cliff overlooking the valley. The ramp envelopes an open landscape region which serves as an auditorium for communal events and produces internal pockets with BBQ spaces for the guests. Guest suites are placed on increasing levels with the cliff topography with half units on the cliff and half of them built into the mountain, accessible via the landscape area and ramp. A voyage on its own at the end the cantilevered Rupu, serves as the climax of the site, where users can ascend their view and take in the grandeur of the valley, the environment before them. Materials Beams and posts using a hybrid of reclaimed wood and locally enabled steel structures are used in the hotel promoting the reuse of material and generation of raw materials from nearby surroundings rather than sourcing them from outside. Sub Mediterranean Oak & Pine will be the primary source of reclaiming materials. In humid scenarios local mushroom population will be primed to be used for Mycellium cladding on the surfaces allowing guests to add to the identity of the hotel on their trail pickings. Summary The environment on site asked for a hybrid-built intervention that respects both mother nature and the user coming into the site. The Setsuzoku enables us to create that connection between what was and what would be. A sustainable approach to a simple concept of Connection. 2nd PRIZE 1st PRIZE Winner 2 INNERMOST Ngo Duc Hieu, Nguyen Phuc Vinh, Chu Minh Duc Public Favourite THE PUBLIC FAVOURITE To vote for the title of Public Favourite, please click on the link below.

  • Retreat for the Blind Iceland Winners | Larsen Liverpool

    RETREAT FOR THE BLIND ICELAND WINNERS RETHINKING ARCHITECTURE. CREATING A PLATFORM FOR ARCHITECTS & STUDENTS TO EXPLORE THEIR CREATIVITY 1st Prize 2nd Prize Honourable Mentions Inspiration Gallery USE THIS PROJECT & SITE ANALYSIS FOR YOUR THESIS / UNIVERSITY / PROFESSIONAL PROJECT All of our project briefs and all resources can be used independently or as part of your educational and career progression. University Thesis | University Project | Portfolio Development | Professional Development | Extra-curricular activity No product Add to Cart THE BRIEF Challenge: to design a partly subterranean retreat to connect people with visual impairments with the sensory environment of Reynisfjara Beach, Iceland. Our brief asks for an innovative and creative design focusing on the user experience and connection to the surrounding nature and wildlife with a minimal environmental impact. The partly subterranean structure will give blind and visually impaired people a unique experience with sensory adventures and opportunity to relax and feel at peace. The retreat should be connected to the surroundings through the choice of design and materiality. THE SITE Iceland's unique and unforgettable geography is defined by volcanic mountain peaks and ice fields, with a coastline marked by fjords (deep shafts marked by glaciers) and black beaches. Reynisfjara beach is Iceland's most famous and most visited black volcanic beach, located in the southern part of the island, near the small village of Vik. It is one of the most popular locations in Iceland due to its black sand and its contrast with the white snow and ice in winter, violent waves, and basalt formations. The combination of these factors makes Reynisfjara beach one of the most beautiful examples of Iceland's rough geography. 1st PRIZE Sensory experience Vera Safonova Winner Sau THE WINNING DESIGN SCHEME SENSORY EXPERIENCE ​ ​ Blind people frequently regret about the lack of independence. Simple things such as for example going from one room to another is difficult for them. My basic concern as a future architect is to solve this problem and simplify spatial orientation for the blind. In order for people with this feature to be able to carry out orientation in the designed environment, the architect should fill the premises with information that can be considered by the remaining 4 channels of perception: auditory, olfactory, taste, tactile. This project main theme is its own system of orientation. The number of rooms can be separate to four logical blocks such as management, hotel, gastro, therapy and spa. You can go from management block to others. There are different kinds of floor materials, smells of plants and bas-relief on the wall for different blocks. Inside the block blind people can go circularly hold on to the wall and read Braille script tablets with descriptions of room function. The shape of room amplify sounds so they will know I advance if someone opens the door. Reynisfjara is a very beautiful place but it also can be interesting sensory experience. My other concern was to amplify feelings that people can experience here. For outside therapy in warm weather there is a form of room that naturally amplifies sounds. People can spend their evenings listening ocean waves, each other, guitar and warm by fire. It is made with larix tree. This plant grows in Iceland and has good physical characteristics that can also amplify sounds. The architect should create such an artificial environment that is accurately functional and understandable by people to orientate, but also can increase the efficiency of process that happens in it. 2nd PRIZE 1st PRIZE Winner 2 WATER RING Yating Kou, Xiao Liu, Bingjie He, Jin Tan To vote for the title of Public Favourite, please click on the link below.
