Zuidkas project / Paul de Ruiter

12:30 - 28 May, 2009

The Zuidkas, an experimental project commissioned by the Government Building Agency, challenges architects with an imaginary office building of over 11,000 square meters in Amsterdam that demands innovative solutions.  The main objective of the Zuidkas project is to achieve the highest possible score with regard to the fulfillment of environmental objectives.

Architect Paul de Ruiter and his team focused on nine aspects of sustainability, ranging from carbon reduction to energy savings. With these elements in mind, de Ruiter created a kind of miniature city that works as one building.

UNStudio wins Grand Hyatt Design

12:30 - 26 May, 2009

Six projects were presented for the competition of a Grand Hyatt Hotel for Frankfurt, Germany.  The jury’s chairperson, Johann Eisele, chose UNStudio’s proposal to proceed with further development. “All the proposals were of an exceptionally high standard. The award-winning design by UNStudio is particularly outstanding as it presents a type of high-rise which does not yet exist in this form in Frankfurt. The contribution by UNStudio demonstrates how harmony can be created between extensive functional demands and the high requirements of exterior and interior design,” commented Eisele.
