Landscape, way finding, movement patterns, expectations for the match, celebrating victory, handling defeat and being a supporter are all important factors to the concept of the entering and exiting of this great arena.
To make this a pleasant and memorable experience is a main objective for the overall concept, and to secure the commercial aspects of the destination.
Tempel University Library
Two of the most important parts of the new library at Tempel are experiences.
The public and the secure area of the library. To discover, navigate and experience a real value added, integration of signage, information sources, added service like an app, wifi, screens, statistics etc is an integral part of the conceptual thought of the space. To imagine your development and your interaction with your mentors, and to be able to share a space while inspiring each other gives new dimensions to the total experience.
The Quad The building comes with the idea of a meeting point that strengthens the social and recreational part of the university. It also includes a traditional university experience of botanical beauty. In a state of the art park space like this the experience include integrated infrastructure for outdoor events, and everyday us of power, network, food, facilities for exercise and systems for keeping it clean.
The Presidio Park
Connecting the city of San Francisco with the Golden Gate Bridge, is now developing to be one of the most desirable destinations for the inhabitant, as well as a gateway to the landmark bridge.
Multi experience park, based on the concept of strands and arcs, the Presidio will have room for welcome center, view point to the bridge, social spaces for morning and evening, marsh lands and historical sites with educational dimensions and a modern infrastructure integrated.
Inviting for work, recreation, exercise, learning, tourism, eating, sports etc, it should have something for everybody.
New Calgary Library
For a city that changes as drastic as the climate through a year, this new complex will be a hub for all the people through all the seasons.
Experience of safety connected to the tram exit at one corner of the building (yes, the railroad goes through the building), would need both wayfaring, sound and warnings to reach the audience attention.
The walls inside and outside are part of the destination experience and communication tool.
The portal from a residential part of the city, to downtown, will be a touchpoint for everyday computers and the entrance to the library, opening up a space for experience shared between those how pass and those how reach their destination.
