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.
Everybody can be a star.
Step into the Hard Rock Cafe Innsbruck and get ready for your performance.
The whole scenery is designed as a setting of a rock stage consisting dressing rooms, hip spaces, frontstage areas and backstage rooms for everybody.
The atmosphere ranges from energizing ( Shop + Bar) to feeling like home (Restaurant).
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.
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.
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.
Die Sanierung des Widum Vent ist ein wichtiger Bestandteil um den Ort und seine Authentizität zu unterstreichen.
Im Bewusstsein dem Ursprünglichen Respekt zu zollen, hat man sich gegen den Abriss und für die Sanierung des historischen Widums entschieden. Im zentralen Blickfeld der Sanierung des denkmalgeschützten Widums der Pfarre Vent steht die (Wieder-)Herstellung eines charakteristischen Gebäudes in der Gemeinde.
Das architektonische Konzept dieses Entwurfs ist die Organisation von Beziehungen und Kommunikation sowohl öffentlicher als auch privater Interessen. Dabei entsteht ein innovativer Topos der die Intensivierung und Attraktivierung von Stadtleben und Stadtkultur fördert.
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.
During recent years a number of observation platforms have been created attempting, through different means, to confront the visitor with the beauties of nature. This panorama platform was commissioned by the management of one of the five glacier ski arenas in Austria. Like most of its competitors, the management is intent upon retaining a high level of appeal of its ski region.
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.
"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.
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.
[Kunstbau are structures which serve as a means of route-specific guidance along the primary road network. These structures include highway embankment dams, and artificial embankments surrounding the highway]
The challenge of this exhibition design is to combine arts, culture and literature together in order to concisely explore what is meant by 'Inside the White Cube': The concept of the design for the cultural history exhibit is based on several variations of the display cases, which are designed to compress and even neutralize traditional values, hinting to this sense only through the use of velvet as a finish material.
This project contains four different ski jumps:
The K75- and the K64-Jump and the small Hills - K35 and K15.
All jumps start from the same hillside facing to the northwest. Each jump has its own approach ramp, take-off table and landing track.
The stand creates a window to the construction site. It demonstrates the complex procedures and situations that make the process of building possible. The stand serves only as a framework: a clear, smooth body, with the raw sub-structure, consisting of a scaffolding, not hidden, but part of the design.
In Innsbruck's industrial park, on the rooftop of an existing office building, a landscape with exclusive apartment/offices will be built. The individual units are to be made of lightweight wood and surrounded by spacious terraces. Around an atrium, the offices are arranged in a ring, in order to create an atrium space.
The project offers a lively promenade as a linear centre. This allows all residents to participate in the common, shared social life.
The balconies and lounges are directly visually linked to the common spaces, so that even non-mobile residents may participate directly in a lodge atmosphere, overlooking the activity of the promenade. The resident can observe the coming and going, watching with amusement, able to appreciate the promenade as a voyeur. The North-South orientation provides an ideal exposure to the activity of the day, while the morning and evening sun can be enjoyed from the bed.
The throughway shapes building typology, in a line moving through the entire planning area. The urban design concept is guided by a comb-like arrangement of lines that run along a north-south oriented green space, with the dwellings arranged in an east-west orientation to ensure the best possible daylight access. A slight distortion of the overall axis creates a positive effect on the perception of the overall system.
The bobsled run in Almaty finds its focal point built in velocity. The geometry is driven by a comprehensive generator, which corresponds to the ideal line of the bob. The bobsled run is 1250m in length and has a height variation of 87m.
Der Entwurf versucht der Bauaufgabe einer Seilbahnstation, als besonders spezifischen Fall eines Ensembles gerecht, zu werden. Fast tausend Höhenmeter voneinander entfernt, nicht zuletzt physisch verbunden durch das Seil, soll trotzfunktionaler Unterschiede eine Einheit entstehen.
In december Hitt und Söhne opened with drinks and skis its doors on the Hungerburg in Innsbruck. In the context between city and mountain five young Munich's realized with an innovative concept something completely new. In the format of a concept store one can admire not only brand new ski models but also a Cafe'- Bar.
On a plotsouth of theDorfgasseinHöttingaresidential complexwill be constructedwithnine apartments.The architecturecould be described asstructuredterracetypology. The building emphasises the qualities of the hillside as well as it fits with the surrounding buildings.
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.

An alpine Hyprid is a multifunctional building. It is the aim of this applied research to develop suitable combinations of function, conceive utilization concepts specially designed for the Alpine area and implement a reference plant.
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.
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.
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 management of the Servite Cloisters was compelled to develop an architecturally-dominant structure for the new Servite Cloisters of the Triumphal Arch on the southern part of Maria Theresa Strasse.
This jump, being constructed in Kazakhstan, features a single tower with two areas of relief, which represents an innovation in such a typology. The newly constructed hill is a sculptural element, generating the form of the two curves at the flanks of the start-up tracks. The V-shaped widening towards the top of the tower recedes in a twisting motion above.
The form of the new multipurpose hall is a long building ascending southward. The ensemble of buildings, primary school, kindergarten and the multipurpose hall define the structure of the village. The orientation towards the road is significant in so far as it provides the school building and its surroundings with an introverted sense. The roof of the building is intensively planted and lies between the school and the kindergarten. It cuts into the topography and by varying across one storey, forms a gentle slope and walk-on roof, resembling a toboggan run.
Excerpt of the competition jury: The proposal is characterised by an ”aerodynamic” design, where all the elements fit together in a unified, plastic form of great elegance. In design terms the proposal appears as the competitions most successful. It appears as a refined, highly developed design where the knoll building and the inrun flow into each other in one unified form.The result is a monumental ski arena that grows out of the landscape. The adopted architectural language is consistent and includes the design as a whole, from public flows, commentators boxes, judges towers and stands...
The concept creates a structure connecting to a set of existing highrise, flanking the buildings to the east. The sloping north-south structure is tailored to the existing ensemble of three high-rises, and takes into consideration the visual axes with respect to both horizontal and vertical datums. The roof pitch is used to maintain a proportional relationship to the highrises.
The family center is a compact, flat building, gently rising to the north. The positioning of the building respects the need for peace in the Church and the opposing lively atmosphere on the southwest side. The roof of the ground floor firmly intersects the earth, utilizing the existing slope of the site, creating variegated spaces for different age groups.
This project is about utilizing an experimental house to demonstrate and identify with the potentials of a material. Within the realm of stone exists a house of stone. The house acts as a garage, one lives as if in a camp, and the living space acts as a showroom.
The development is understood as a complete system, flooded with generous green spaces, along both the north and south facades of Prenstrasse. The crossing of the road from south to north is imagined as permeable, where the northern bar is shaped by the influence of noise pollution from Südring. The placement of the outdoor spaces in the north tie into the established southern datum. The garden becomes the identity of the project, wherein the garden is reimaged as a garden facade.
The morphology and dispersion of forces created by its neighbors, shape Lodenareal. The volumes are separately arranged and appear to adhere to a free composition, though the arrangement is truly formed by local environmental forces, and is sympathetic to its effect on said conditions. The new Olympic Village is identified as a sustainable framework of urban design, which is the basis of this proposal.
The village hall, church, neighborhood and Nature Park together create a new center. The positioning of the parking garage allows for the natural extension to the south of the village center and combines separate functions, which are of central importance for community life.
Thetis' lodge exists as a crack in the rock, a point to relax with views of the Wilder Kaiser. On the southwest of the plateau is a flat rock acting as the 'Copyright of the Landscape' [Natural logo] on the stone slab.
The structure appears as the result of a slightly raised ground floor, a compact bar on the gentle, meandering landscape. A trail network consisting of mowed ways leading from a fixed main road, and many unpaved side roads (sometimes only marked with the lawn mower in the meadow fields), divide and characterize the landscape.
The building design is based on a guiding geometrical system, in which a series of different helix-structures are generated to define the construction logic of the tower. The facade is imagined as a perforated and twisted surface, and a void is cut through the building to be used for lighting and circulation.
The peculiarity of the topographic conditions and the uniqueness of its usage are what make the Bergisel a sporting and cultural hotspot. A reponse sympathetic to the traditional - historical burden of the place is the focus of this proposal.
