People’s Pavilion of Dutch Design Week, Arup 

Overtreders W and Bureau SLA 

For the Dutch Design Week 2017 (21-29 October), the temporary People’s Pavilion is erected, made only from borrowed materials. Because these materials have to return to their rightful owners after the event, no glue, screws, drills or saws were used.

Perimeter X, Tel Aviv

Baranowitz & Goldberg in collaboration with Pitsou Kedem Architects

Materials: Wood, Metal, Aluminum, Aluminum sheet, Steel, Concrete, Glass, Synthetic material, Polycarbonate

“The design concept stemmed from a grid-based plan. The space was divided into volumes and circulation paths, between closed spaces and freestanding elements. The fact that almost all employees work in open space environments allowed for a layout where all closed rooms were situated around the core of the building and the open-space stations were placed as freestanding elements in the center of the space. Thus, the perimeter curtain wall remained un-obstructed, and the access to the view and light was open to all. The two large conference rooms were the only closed volumes to be placed as free-standing transparent boxes in the central public space.The two-dimensional grid was than extruded vertically with the introduction of a grid of tracks carrying movable partitions. These partitions sub-divide the space and create new opportunities for grouping teams or having larger get-togethers. Two types of partitions were designed, one constructed of industrial, steel welded-grating and the other of corrugated polycarbonate sheets.

The main idea was to take industrial off-the shelf products and manipulate them into fine, well-dressed elements. The steel grate was unraveled to create a new pattern and be transformed from a simple grid to an industrial lace. This woven-like partition created divisions without blocking the space. The openness of this so-called weave allowed for subtle, layered views of the cityscape around. The white corrugated polycarbonate sheets were designed as more assertive divisions that give more privacy.”

A Room for Archaeologists and Kids in Pachacámac 

ETH Zurich, Switzerland & PUCP, Lima; Taller 5 Studio & Tom Emerson Studio 

light wood structure in combination with wovan textil elements 

“The Room for Archaeologists and Kids, is a timber structure 37m x 16.3m and 3.6m tall, which forms a covered arcade around a courtyard. The structure is made from twenty-eight square fields of 10m2, defined by a column in each corner, and with a lattice-work roof above. The five fields at each short end are enclosed by woven bamboo panels, set vertically, with a concrete floor to provide a robust surface. These rooms contain wooden shelving that offers space for storage and exhibiting archaeological finds, as well as wooden tables that can be brought outside when required."

Kengo Kuma

Bognar, B. (2009). Material Immaterial: The New Work of Kengo Kuma. New York: Princeton Architectural Press.

You could say that my aim is ‘to recover the place’. The place is a result of nature and time; this is the most important aspect. I think my architecture is some kind of frame of nature. With it, we can experience nature more deeply and more intimately. Transparency is a characteristic of Japanese architecture; I try to use light and natural materials to get a new kind of transparency.

by Kengo Kuma

“Whereas other well-known Japanese architects have all gone for the highly minimalistic, aristocratic form of architecture, Kuma’s aesthetic is towards the common vernacular Japanese architecture.

Kuma is taking the image of the old Japan, of the Edo-period Tokyo or Kyoto, as he puts a heavy emphasis on wood and traditional craftsmanship. But then he stylises his forms in a completely new way, focussing on one or two elements that everyone associates with Japan. “

Marcus Fairs | 16 April 2020 | vdf

I looked into Kengo Kumas work to learn from his structural solutions. A ceiling doesn’t have to be solid masses instead it can be a light structure or framework. The atmosphere of a room can be chanced by simple solutions. Furthermore, light and transparency are an important aspect of his work.
