    miami FLORIDA & new york NEW YORK

    NYC CASINO/CONVENTION CENTER COMPETITION
    First place — $1200

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    alex LOZANO & reynolds DIAZ jr.: In recent years Manhattan’s lower West Side has undergone radical urban transformations. Perhaps the most influential addition to this part of the urban fabric has been the Highline Elevated Park; a melting pot of diverse activities. Thus extending this dynamic chamber of locals, artist, tourist and night-life enthusiast was an essential component to the proposal. Moreover, catalyzing these synergizes throughout the site emerge fields of landscape diversities. In this landscape, people can recreate, farm, lounge, gather or stroll for a casual walk.

    KyuYoung HUH & jj YEO:

    The Yards ///
    Manhattan’s West Side has a character all its own. In examining the Western edge condition, affinities with building typologies of particular scale and program began to emerge, where the city’s anomalies and irregularities convene. This is where the streets protrude as piers into the water, where several strip clubs have opened, where sports are played in multi-purpose parking lots, where the hulking mass of the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum is permanently docked.

  • Filtration
    new york NEW YORK

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    paul TSE, sarah CHUNG, steven TSAI, xander LU, & evelyn TING: Filtration is the second prize entry from graduates of Columbia University for the Busan Opera House International Ideas Competition.

    An opera house at its simplest is a black box. It is a container, a vessel in which to deliver and absorb a performance. At the same time, the opera house is a significant contributor to a city’s image, often considered a measure of a city’s cultural agenda. Our proposal highlights the intersection of these two facets—the idea of the opera house as both event and place—in the most literal sense, a large square elevated above the water that is punctured by the theaters and public amenities such as a café, ballroom, and gallery.

  • Public Boarding School
    dalian CHINA

    The library is intended to be a transformative environment that pulls visitors into a unique landscape. The building weaves into the ground creating a series of courtyards and topographic undulations- rooting itself, and then sweeping up into the air forming a bold urban landmark. The shifting of the mass creates spaces ranging from the intimate spaces for reflection in the courtyard to the dynamic and expansive views offered from the tower volume. The tower volume has a series of internal voids and terraced spaces to further enhance the variety of spatial conditions and to provide internal connectivity. A series of retail functions including cafes will help draw a larger audience to the library. A large media center that shares the central drop-off can be used after hours and function independently.

  • Angewandte NEU
    vienna AUSTRIA

    Between 1st and 3rd district in Vienna on the Ringstrasse a few buildings of different authors and times are collected on a block. Some of them serve the purposes of the Museum for Applied Arts and some of them serve the University of Applied Arts. The original urban intent for this group of buildings follows a very fine, subtle and precise idea. Although being part of a block, or standing on a block, they were always meant to keep their independency and autonomy by simultaneously allowing for a visibility of the space in between them.
