Green Pavilion / Restaurant

ZELENI PAVILJON / RESTORAN

The most important element and the inspiration for this project is the location itself, with extremely high quality existing vegetation densely distributed throughout the plot and gradually diluted out toward the eastern edge. The idea of the new Pavilion / Restaurant is to construct a space by mapping the area of high quality trees and to define the remaining territory for construction.

THE MOTOVUN STUDY CENTER

Studijski centar Motovun

(Srpski/Hrvatski) Ljetna škola arhitekture u Motovunu djeluje pri Studijskom centru Arhitektonskog fakulteta od 1981. godine i ima za cilj istraživanje, valorizaciju i kreativnu interpretaciju graditeljskih iskustava koja su na podrucju Istre tijekom stoljeca ostavila bogatu kulturnu, arhitektonsku i urbanisticku baštinu. Svojim djelovanjem na tlu Istre škola treba biti promotor ideja te rasadnik teorijskog i prakticnog znanja u podrucju suvremenog planiranja, izgradnje i oblikovanja prostora, kao i aktivni sudionik u revalorizaciji kulturne baštine, te zaštiti i unapredenju čovjekove okoline.

3LHD - Zeleni paviljon/Restoran

The most important element and the inspiration for this project is the location itself, with extremely high quality existing vegetation densely distributed throughout the plot and gradually diluted out toward the eastern edge. The idea of the new Pavilion / Restaurant is to construct a space by mapping the area of high quality trees and to define the remaining territory for construction. By raising this “cut” green territory in the air the space “below” is created.

THINK SPACE 2012 – PAST FORWARD

THINK SPACE 2012

Think Space 2012 – PAST FORWARD cycle devised by this year’s guest curator Adrian Lahoud, a former winner in the 2011 Borders Cycle, aims to repeat three competitions that radically transformed architectural culture: The Peak (1982), Yokohama Port Terminal (1995), and Blur Building (1999), with participating architects in the original competition acting as jurors in the current one: Zaha Hadid & Patrik Schumacher (jurors for The Peak), Alejandro Zaera-Polo (juror for Yokohama Port Terminal) and Ricardo Scofidio & Charles Renfro (juror for the Blur Building).
