The Bursa Atatürk Sports Hall Competition proposal makes a neighborly relation with The National Garden in the south. The main subject that is prioritized is to conceal the structural installation inside of the defined green context. Considering the structural density of the residential texture close to the competition site, it is critical that the state of concealment makes a contribution to the urban occupancy-vacancy balance by dissolving the competition site boundaries and integrating them with the periphery.

Office building as a second home is an issue that I want to mention it. By considering the presence of users in their working place in most hours of the day, I have achieved a different quality. Design of this building delivers an environmental concept to the observer. If we want to consider the whole volume as a rectangular cube with a concrete shell, wood in the form of ivy is rotated on the façade from inside the cube.

The idea is to reconstruct an infamous abandoned building “Sathornue Unique Tower” to a new affordable and sustainable community to provide a good living environment for low and middle class residents. Francine also gives a feedback that it is a good idea to design an abandoned building. The main street around the building creates an unique appearance and travel flow for the building and this project is not only a residential complex but a vertical village which fulfils the daily demand of nowadays human being.

Looking back, the ancient educational system in India included spaces for active pub-lic interaction leading to layers of interconnected gain which in turn formed a sense of ownership within the community. It incorporated spaces such as open arenas, cultiva-tion lands, and collaborative workshops that could be utilized for the needs of the im-mediate community around the GURUKUL.

FAAHO206 aims to generate a dynamic social and cultural center, strengthening the sense of neighborhood while meeting the needs of the younger population. The liberation of the ground plane allows the volume to stand as an urban landmark. Thank to it, a large public space is developed over the entire plot to host outdoor activities while enjoying impressive landscape. Over it, the multifunctional center is organized in a compact and stratified volume, with highly flexible spaces that look to adapt to future uses.

Due to the fact that the building has a commercial purpose, the static balance of the long facade building is energized by the diagonals of the suspensions for vertical landscaping as sun and noise protections. Horizontal cornices are complemented by massive vases with a relief stone surface. Lower part of Doroshenko Street is devoid of landscaping, so the sides of the houses, which are created from the deepening of the red line, are used as planes for vertical landscaping.

This “plant in a park” balances clean energy production with wetland protection and educational, cultural, and recreational resources for a growing region. Three rising organic forms contain turbine halls and stacks. A ring of supporting workspaces define an oval precinct with a service courtyard, and a surrounding park features wetlands and mangrove islands. Dune fields offer elevated views to the landscape and activities. A recreational basin along the canal edge provides dune field landfill and connects to the nearby harbor.

Our design proposes different island environments linked in one park as a unifying landscape. These islands are bordered by water which regulates the perfect life conditions for flora and fauna and protects them from intrusion. The proposed water network works as communicating vessels between the different habitats. Regulated by water these habitats will balance themselves offering resilience and guaranteeing a good dynamic for the whole landscape ecosystem.

Situated south of the city by Jiulong Lake, the theatre and art centre is set to become the cultural hub and landmark of the new urban development zone. The building is expected to be completed in 2024. The main functions of the 35,000 m2 building – grand theatre/opera hall, multifunctional theatre, and educational and exhibition facilities – are broken down into three separate volumes, circling each other like fish in a pond. Following the typology of a traditional Chinese village, this creates a variety of indoor and outdoor streets and plazas that allow the free flow of people in and around the building.

Even though Istanbul and bosphorus have this extraordinarily charming effect on people especially, at first sight, we can easily say that it could not be compared to any epic fairy-tale-land illustrations of bosphorus from the last two centuries. “The peak” aims to greet this, to commemorate a unique person of history, “Architect Sinan the Great” who has designed a magnificent amount of buildings around the world, and especially in Istanbul, that has changed the way of understanding and maintaining the city and its culture. Even today, architects are learning from his works. This “legacy of sinan” has created a valuable history and topography for the city that strengthened the epic silhouette of the city for centuries. In that manner, “The Peak”, a new public ground for the city, shapes a new sculptural topography and experience in between the coastal line and the urban square of Usküdar, as the eighth hill of Istanbul in the memory of Sinan.

The project is located in Hangzhou Xiacheng district, which is the first stadium in China to meet the official standards of the Asian e-sports Games. It will fulfill the functional requirements of e-sports competition, training, leisure and entertainment for Hangzhou E-sports entertainment town. The site is enclosed by urban ground roads, high-speed rail lines, and elevated expressways. The surrounding traffic is extremely complicated. The e-sports stadium adopts the method of “sinking”, by introducing the flow of people and traffic through the basement space, which effectively breaks through the shackles of the complex traffic conditions around the site.
