BUCHAREST ARENA > IAD´S PROPOSAL UNVEILED

Bucharest, Romania

VINCI Construction Grands Projets and IAD delivered their international competition entry for the future Bucharest Arena located in the Lia Manoliu Sports District, next to the National Stadium. The singular and expressive project imagined by IAD was very well received by the town hall jury and has been rated as the best architectural and technical project of the tender. The tender is currently under administrative review to idealize an appropriate system of funding for the conception and building periods that should start at the end of 2014 if an agreement is reached between all parties . A protective gesture: The building unfolds upwards, recessing its facades far under its cantilevered roof that allows for generous covered exterior public spaces in front of the main entrances. This protective architectural gesture marks the whole intervention, generating a dialog with the National Stadium, creating a primary visual interactive communication on the facades and generating an active landscape along the periphery of the building.

Height: 32.5 meters
Floors: 10
Rooms: 170 (including 6 suited for people with reduced mobility)
Project: 2011 - 2014


RIADH, the association of architects created by Rafael de La-Hoz (RDH) and IAD, has been awarded and selected in the architecture competition organised by the Promoter  Unibail-Rodamco, for the construction of a hotel in the  l´Îlot Valmy  area, as a part of the development program of the  Jardins  de  l´Arche surroundings in the  Nanterre  town. The  hotel, with a net surface above the ground level of about 4 800 m2 conceived by this association, will plan around 170 rooms, of which 6 them will host people with reduced mobility. The complex is integrated in a half dense urban area around L\\\'arche de La Défense, the Chemetov footbridge and the future stadium of  Nanterre-La-Défense. The main hotel acceses will be situated in the gardens level and its basement (at the square level) will house mainly commercial uses (1 000m2). The union of architects has projected this building like a true design object. With a height of 32.5 metres (10 floors), the building raises with a façade that seems a suspended panoramic screen. Like a background curtaind, a second screen collects and exceeds this first gesture, bur folds itself to respect the seetback clearly defined by Epadesa.

NEW YORK BREATHING MACHINE SPECIAL MENTION!

A Building That Breathes

Category: Office, Hotel and Sky Garden Super-Skyscraper
Location: New York City, USA
Site Area: 200 000m2
Height: 468
Mission: Competition
Status: Special Mention


IAD has been selected among hundreds of other agencies for their design, packed with new sustainability concepts, of an iconic Super-Skyscraper on the Upper West Side in New York thus receiving a special mention. The main initiative proposed by this seemingly out of scale project is to postulate itself as the articulation of nearby referential and green spaces within Manhattan\\\'s city grid. Thus, wanting to create a shared space and sensitive urban ecosystem, we settled on the creation of a vertical garden, a true orthogonal projection of Central Park. By its own typology, the tower allows for the entry of natural light and ventilation, the protection against meteorological conditions, all while taking advantage of them when they are favorable, making it a captor of sustainable energy. The 468m tall building is neatly fragmented in order to divide private, tertiary and hotel programs from the public Vertical Garden.
