The estimated cost of the project: 3000 euros


Место интересно само по себе. В парке уже есть потрясающие деревья, пространство, скамейки. Парк хорошо освещен ночью. Объект окружен памяткиками архитектуры. Мы решили сделать проект о самом парке, певидимую инсталяцию, отржающую окружающую среду и людей.

Мы учавствовали в подобном проекте по облицовке фасада павилиона BP. Фасад павилиона был облицован зеркальными композитными нанелями. (Dibond mirror). Павилион отражал олимпийский парк и людей на него смотрящих. Проект получился чрезвычайно фотогеничным. Данные панели доступны в Ярославле по цене чуть выше стандарных покрытий. (около 530 рублей за м2)

Мы решили предложить подобный прием для нашего парка. Инсталяция создает уникальный фильтр калейдоскоп для фотографий. Почти у каждого в наше время есть мобильные телефоны с камерой. Очень тяжело сфотографировать инсталяцию и при этом не попасть в кадр самому. Большинство фотографий с телефонов тем или иным образом оказываются в социальных сетях. Проект может стать <<check In>> точной, что будет способствовать популярности самого парка среди горожан.

Парк уже на данной момент являестя популярной skateboard точкой. Примечательно, что парапеты используемые скейтерами находятся довольно далеко от жилых домов и окорожены деревьями, что улучшает акустику. Катание в данном месте не ясляется антисоциальным. Используя дерево в нижней части кострукции намекаем на возмодность использования инсталяции в качестве киккера – трамлина, или бокса для слайдов и грайндов (трюков со скольжением по граням на доске). В качестве зрелищной части может быть устроен мини-конкурс по скейтбордингу.

Часть вертикальных поверхностей предлагается сделать из фанеры, либо белых композитных панелей. Это позволит нанести краску из балончиков. Это можно будет использовать в качестве зрелищной часть во время сборки конструкции. Например, мини конкурс граффити.

LiteHouse   / RED DEER    / UNITED KINGDOM, LONDON   / Архитектурный объект

Purpose:   The aim of the LiteHouses is to create new spaces in the heart Yaroslavl where inhabitants can enjoy new views of the city and offer an opportunity for users to withdraw from the hectic city life. Litehouses create a space for introspection and observation


Concept of the project:

The original concept was to offer new views of Chaikovsky Street and the surrounding area. The existing views are framed by the trees along an axis which culminates at the monument.

We wanted to challenge this rational planning by designing spaces in which inhabitants could see new views of the city from Chaikovsky park. We decided to propose intimate ‘pods’ suspended up in the tree which would not only decorate the park, appearing out from the tress as giant lanterns, but also create elevated views of the surrounding buildings and passersby in the park.

The playful ‘Litehouses’ would be suspended from the trees and remain accessible throughout the year, day and night, highlighting the seasonal changes of the park and the city life around it.

Technical description:

  • -  24x 1800mm long 100mm dia Kebony Struts
  • -  2 x. 500mm dia Circular Mirrored Panels
  • -  50 linear Metres of 8mm dia Steel cables
  • -  Steel Fixings
  • -  2 x 8mm steel rings
  • -  8 cubic meters of mirrored PVC fabric
  • -  5 metres of rope for clibbing

The estimated cost of the project: Approximately $3000 per pod

Tree / Pow-Chween Wan / United Kingdom, Belfast / Архитектурный объект


Purpose:   Installation/Shelter in the midst of the trees in Yaroslavl

Tree /2

Concept of the project:  The genesis of the proposal is the ‘tree’, as in the Birch tree in Esenin’s poetry: ‘on the fluffy branches, snowy-trim with silver-tinge’ in the heart of Yaroslavl, a constant witness of empires and history.

Tree /3

Technical description:

The proposal is an installation attempting to branch out from an idea of a continuous differentiates space with no clear boundary into the envelope of the surrounding conservation area, like trees which has always stood by witnessing the growth of the city throughout history. A new structure is proposed within these lined rows of trees. The structural system adopted is similar to that of a tree-branch system.

The propagation of the branching system along the longitudinal section of the park is differentiated in its growth along the transversal section.

This differentation potentially reorganises the park with other possible programmes, ie food/cafe. The plywood- clad roof is punctured with a series of opening corresponding to the intersection of the branches allowing light penetration in correspondence with any potential programme.

Transitional Space / Sebastiao Celestino / United Kingdom, London / Архитектурный объект

Transitional Space

Purpose: Art Installation that may hold public events, and contemplation by the passby users.

Transitional Space / 2

Concept of the project: Transitional meeting and public events simultaneously. Rises problems in terms of gravitational force and structure design. Uses light and transparence to create a transitional space which is both solid and liquid in terms of users experience.

Transitional Space /3

Technical description: 5mx15m, 12% inclined space made from timber structure members and externally clad with recycled timber panels and internally with polished stainless steel sheets.

Transitional Space interior

The estimated cost of the project: $3000.00

Transitional Space interior 2

The transitional space.  

The proposal main idea is based on the concept of cultural inter connectivity which is one of the most valued aspect of our modernity, this common identity has been universalizing the way that humans deal with nature not just as the support for life but also as the provider of raw materials. This aspect is symbolized through a timber box reminiscent of shipping containers that are constantly used to connect us through the transportation of goods around the world. The shipping container box has two main design characteristics, simples and strong on its external structure and detailed and protective on its interior arrangement. The combination of these two features permits it to efficiently exercise its function of moving around life saving goods around the world therefore connecting societies in a never-ending relationship.

Transitional Space masterplan

The proposed public art installation makes this parallelism with the urban revolution and sustainability that are needed on our cities which in some extent have to be structurally planned to support mankind live on its multiple aspects in line with our most valued desire; to be happy and fulfilled when protecting and enlacing the environment. This unity of form and function is employed to propose a new system of urban entity where the space constantly re configure itself in away of supporting any kind of activity that is necessary. Mathematically, the space is a constant that satisfy an infinity number of equations with multiple variables and this is done through a combination of Euclidean and No Euclidean types of spaces; orthogonal and curved entities.

Transitional Space / plan

Therefore, the parameters applied to define the object’s architectural typology were taken from the environment resources that forms the city and the large region, those are: the hydrologic system composed by the meeting of rivers, the trees and vegetations that characterized the land and the urban networking, the linearity and historic arrangement of the city’s form specially around the area of intervention, day light and its effects on the local context, neighborhood buildings with their textures and colors.

Transitional Space / facade

All these features are used in away of programming a space that is defined as transitional in terms of the experience that users may feel. Therefore, it is solid and liquid type of environment simultaneously; it develops on the ground’s gardens and ends along the top of the trees. Furthermore, the proposed art installation is configured to be experienced as open and closed kind of space where one may be in a private context that is simultaneously public.

Transitional Space / 4

The simplicity of details becomes very complex through a mathematical progression of numbers that multiplies itself through the reflection of the internal decoration and all the external entities on site. It is the multiplication of life through variation and adaptability compared to the river’s microbiological organisms arranged as biological soup that moves along,

fertilizing the land to germinate living organisms that are most need for humans. The design moves away from the segmentation or fragmentation through function of traditional cities and proposed a new kind of city where the space becomes a variable that transforms itself according to needs, if an inclined type of space is need then the same-leveled space becomes inclined. This is in line with our next social revolution that will be characterized by freedom of molecular arrangement on materials meaning that through molecular arrangement we will be able to transform the property of materials, from rock we may produce plastic.

Transitional Space / 5

On this exercise, we have been focused on exploring the idea of unity and inter connectivity of entities in a large scale so to form a sensitive and constantly changing unity of environmental friendly object that is harmoniously integrated with its immediate context. Its space arrangement is done in away that the users are invited to put themselves on a podium so to be contemplated and also to contemplate others or the landscape. This is what an eco friendly futuristic life is: I am others and others are myself through the unity of diversity that is equilibrated by the physics of nature through the continuity space.
