Guangzhou Baiyun International Convention Center Design by BURO II, in Guangzhou, China

June 15, 2013 By: archinhome Category: Architecture

Designed by BURO II, located in Guangzhou, China.
The administration of the booming city of Guangzhou decided to develop a new administrative centre to the north of the downtown area, on the site of the old airport, at the edge of the historical landscape of the Baiyun Mountains. The new congress centre must function as the motor of this new urban process.

The Baiyun highway cuts the mountain park off from the new urban development. The old villages and the new buildings coexist in a chaotic urban conglomerate. Despite the current fragmentation of the site, it does have enormous qualities and potentials. The plot is located there where the historical dialog between the mountain and the city can be renewed within a contemporary society.

Kaufhaus Canal Hamburg Design by Topotek 1, in Hamburg, Germany

June 05, 2013 By: archinhome Category: Architecture

This Kaufhaus Canal Hamburg is design by Topotek 1, located in Hamburg, Germany
Their winning Kaufhauskanal housing scheme provides 80 residential units, which introduce living into a former industrial area of Hamburg. The typology for the overall plan for the Kaufhauskanal Metrozone is designed as a series of new ‘Kaufhaus Hybrids’. The scheme accommodates the existing quarter in that all the new buildings slope downwards and outwards to meet the heights of the existing buildings. The roofs are angled and inclined to maximize views to the sky and at the same time minimize the noise from the surrounding streets, roads and railway.

Bjarke Ingels, BIG Partner-in-Charge “Our Kaufhauskanal vision proposes a neighbourhood where you can have both – both city and nature, both open and urban, both history and future, both identity and diversity, both work and play.”

The warped framework creates a layout that is varied and unique without impacting movement through its open space. The resulting urban experience fluctuates between variation and continuity.
