EVENT | Simulating Natures | March 19-20 2015

archiWEB 3.0 - 20 January, 2015 - 16:12


Karen M’Closkey and Keith VanDerSys  with generous support from PennDesign are organising a “symposium explores how recent forms of media influence our understanding and formation of landscapes” with a keynote lecture by James Corner on March 19.

The symposium will examine the substantial changes that have occurred within the digital realm over the last decade, focusing in particular on the development of computationally enabled imaging and modeling. How can we better engage the “invisibles”—biotic and abiotic interactions and flows—that exist outside of human creation but can only be understood through our systems of representation? This symposium considers emerging methods and vocabularies that engage this question; it looks to our allied fields—architecture, art, ecology, engineering, and philosophy—to seek points of convergence as well as to challenge our presumptions when designing with nature today.

march 19, 6-8pm
Keynote: JAMES CORNER

march 20, 9-6pm
Session 1: Flows (Modeling the Invisibles)
Session 2: Agents (Designing for the Invisibles)

Kievit in Green | Antwerp Belgium | HOSPER

archiWEB 3.0 - 20 January, 2015 - 15:43

The public space of Kievitwijk District serves as the internationally oriented entrance area of ​​the Central Station of Antwerp, as urban workplace and as green space for local residents. Therefore, a strong identity in the design comes first: as a binding element of the various spheres and users, and as a structuring public domain for the entire district (old and new). A coherent solution requires a clear appearance.

 Therefore the design team resolutely opted for a green character. The strong green structure in the design creates unity, and gives the neighbourhood an urban character and appearance.

Trees are planted where possible, which defines the character of the area in all seasons. In addition, raised “green pillows” are proposed, that give structure to the space and also function as informal green play areas. Part of the green identity is created by planting the new built vertical walls.

The design of the public space allows a flexible use, related to the (very) different user groups. The feeling of being dominated by the buildings, makes way for a feeling of security. At the edges of the raised “green pillows” small places to sit together are suggested. These spaces make people forget the large scale buildings in the area. The design offers open as well as closed spaces for different groups of users, who can temporarily call these spaces their own. The aim is to design a secure social environment, with attention for the evening- and night situation and use.

In the design all required spatial and infrastructural connections are ensured, to undo the former isolation of the Kievit District. The Kievit phase 2 area is anchored in its environment by the explicit spatial links, both in north-south direction and by the new connections in east-west direction.

With respect for the cultural heritage of the station area of Antwerp, new urban spaces have been designed. Near the entrance of the station building a new lively space is added. In addition, the railway bridge over the Plantin and Moretuslei is made accessible. On top of the historical railway bridge a “city balcony “ is designed, with a seating podium and a multi court. Between the city balcony and the rails a vertical playground will be built.
