Objects III & IX - Stasus
Authors of the latest Pamphlet Architecture 32
“Animate Landscapes Is the culmination of two years work based on Warsaw and is the beginning of the collaborative work that led to Stasus. Incorporating a proposal for a film and animation studio; the Warsaw Institute of Experimental Film, the project developed programme and forms from an amalgamation of the physical context of the site in Warsaw and the material context of the studio in Edinburgh.
The buildings both work with the train tracks on the site, tethered and held above them and in response to their continuous motion. While the studios channel vibrations from the tracks into the film editing process, the hotel sits inaccessible and skeletal above the station platforms, opening up and coming to life when the film festival begins.”

SOUTHWARK FARMHOUSE MASTERPLAN
New public toilets will be installed all around the borough to generate energy from the biodigesters. The most popular toilets will then cause new farmhouses to grow as communities begin to grow around the biodigesters.
A new congestion zone will be implemented around the Southwark borough where no petrol producing cars will be allowed through the gates, The congestion zone will be managed by green policemen who will be housed in small elevated police stations dotted around the borough.
London boroughs now have the duty, under section 40 of the Natural Environment and Rural Communities Act, to have regard for biodiversity. Currently parks and open spaces account for 12% of Southwark’s overall land use with 32 parks, this project will seek to increase this to at least 90% leaving only the transport roads free. New planning laws will be implemented in the borough where all new roofs, balconies and walls will need to be used to grow a certain quantity of vegetables or provide garden space.

#catrina stewart #berlin #architecture
Berlin Model Basin (Versuchsanstalt für Wasserbau) is used as a space to experiment with hydrodynamics and environmental and navigational engineering. It houses basins of deep and shallow water, each 120 meters long, where waves are intentionally generated at a certain frequency, height and amplitude. Every ocean phenomena in the world can be reproduced inside it. The architecture is generated by, and is designed around, the movement and the fluidity of water.
