ARCHIPRIX WINNERS, NOMINEES AND FAVOURITES
Slideshow of winners, nominees and participants favourites edition 2019
Dutch Design Ride Interlocking Realm Of Politics And Architecture
Lesia Topolnyk interviews Floris Alkemade, the State Architect of the Netherlands. For the Dutch Design Rides Lesia Topolnyk designed an object related to her graduation project. The object was placed on top of one of the taxis, which bring visitors to locations across the Dutch Design Week. The designed object represents the idea of an extrapolated historic street, an informal decision-making place. To Lesia it is important that her work is contextualized, mentally or physically. Therefore, complementary to the object, she decided to turn the taxi itself into the debate-space, creating a Debate-Ride. Besides riding along with visitors, she invited Floris Alkemade to discuss several topics related to the interlocking realm of politics and architecture, which is the theme of her award winning graduation project:Un-United Nations Headquarters.
PECHA KUCHA From Religion to Everyday Life
Chen YANG presents the nominated project he designed together with Jianyun CAI From Religion to Everday Life - The Renewal of ShiMa Town, ZhangZhou, China.. This design selects the city level and street level of two individual religious spaces as a case for the design. We hope to provide a template for updating religious space at other levels.
Pecha Kucha 185 en-counters
Mohamad Nahleh presents his project that is a favourite of the participants and winner: 185 en-counters. The study reveals a method of materializing the power of dwellers in Karm El-Zeitoun, Beirut and their spaces in the form of architectural interventions by devising a series of public installations. These interventions are positioned on leftover plots deemed unusable. They benefit from the insignificance of residual plots by injecting within them seemingly innocent public spaces that provoke abusive interference.
Sara Pellegrini and Domenico Spagnolo present their award winning project:Waliców, Fortress of Memory. This project proposes the rehabilitation and critical integration of a core of three buildings from the early twentieth century that have survived devastation. The three buildings, located in Ulica Waliców, along with the free areas left over by years of war destruction, eloquently focus the dimension of memory and the documentary depth of Warsaw Ghetto’s history.
