Reach 11 Athletic Sports Complex / colab studio

Reach 11 is a sports complex in North Phoenix comprised of 18 soccer fields and 4 baseball fields. A Call for Artists went out to provide large amounts of shade at four diverse locations within the large park. Visibly adjacent to the site, a raised earth-buttressed canal brings water 350 miles from the Colorado River to Phoenix as the city continues to grow. Expressing the audacity of the desert oasis, colab studio sought a way to describe this precarious scale of human intervention on the landscape. Comparing such an endeavor with weightlessness moments found in sporting events, 6,000 pound local stones can be quarried and set on posts in various configurations around the huge soccer tournament park, surrounded on 2 sides by the canal. Shapes mimicking mountains and water’s movement through canyons create a unique environment to dwell in deep shade.

Portuguese architectural photographer Fernando Guerra FG + SG shared with us a photo set of the Burgo Tower (2007), designed by the 2011 Pritzker laureate Eduardo Souto de Moura. The building, located in Porto, was described by the Pirtzker jury as “…two buildings side by side, one vertical and one horizontal with different scales, in dialogue with each other and the urban landscape.” Souto de Moura commented that “a twenty story office tower is an unusual project for me. I began my career building single family houses.” More photos of the Burgo Tower after the break:

Soddy / Randy Brown Architects

This proposed sod house designed by Randy Brown Architects responds to the site and the history of Nebraska’s first settlers of European descent. In the early 1800’s, Nebraska was all open fields filled with native prairie grass. The first settlers were confronted with the challenge of what materials to build with. These pioneers built dugouts, or homes that were literally dug out of the side of hills. Exterior walls were slabs of sod stacked in a running board pattern.
