WOOD WOOD – TOWARDS SENSING SUSTAINABILITY
The aim of this project is to capture the essence of the surrounding area by echoing it in the wooden constructions and inviting the neighboring forest and lakes in to participate in the development of this new habitat. This is to main course is to make strategic plaforms for people to sensing sustianibility through varios forms. Through an almost seamless transition between what was and what is, the area can grow and change with the seasons. Natural processes constantly change our perception of a place, -and an important share of urban life occurs outside buildings in public territory referred to as voids defined by the built form from our additions.
The aim is to create a strong sense of communality by offering high-density housing with a variety of different dwelling types concentrated to distinct neighborhoods. An area where relationships between people can be formed in the negative spaces created by the diversity of opportunities the additional buildings present. One important step is to renovate the older buildings block for creating a sense of historical continuity and integrate them to the new residential areas. We have drawn the framework for different social acticities the alternatives for people in all ages. The yards could easily be programmed with a potential of incorporation of small sport courts & recreative areas. This will in a natural way make the life for students more rich and interesting
By incorporating different stages of natural material into the core of the site, the hybridism between urban, rural, and forest greens presides the physical intervention. This ensures sustainability by default as to manage the impact of human activities, bringing functions and services close by and inter-connected allows the residents to co-exist and flourish. The woods and rocks themselves are put into values under a new light and become more visible as a new unbuilt landmark for the area, the new buildings sitting gently on the land. The goal is to activate all senses through the different forms of processed and natural woods, a sort of union between the existing landscape vs. the artificial interference.
