Third prize in the significantly talked about architectural competition for the style of Container Vacation Property named [SYDNEY 08] comes as the task layout by Australian group of architecture students James Moulder and Andrew Nicolle. This mentioned competition was hosted by [AC-CA], uncover more of the venture after the jump:
From the Architects:
Concrete- characterised by or belonging to fast knowledge of real factors or occasions strong, actual, tangible.
Anamnesis- a recalling to mind reminisce. Shipping container housing, utilised several instances in areas all about the globe, is now recognised as an architectural typology in its very own right. Utilizing structurally sound containers, stacked and cantilevered on prime of every other, container housing speaks of an architectural type that expresses in itself the useful and practical nature of internationally standardised shipping containers.
Even though the use of structurally sound containers for housing permits the sustainable reuse of containers nearing the finish of their lives, it does not address the situation of the estimated thirty,000 damaged containers at the moment in the oceans, or the additional 2,000-10,000 containers which fall off ships yearly. These containers call for on average 8,000 kWh to melt down, a lot more than an regular house utilizes in 1 yr.
Our notion proposal, Concrete Anamesis, builds on, however is vastly different to concepts linked with container housing. Beginning with damaged containers, no longer ideal for use in shipping and destined for the scrap yard, the Bondi getaway home gives function to these containers, utilizing their damaged panels as formwork for the home.
The broken containers are organised on web site according to the programmatic brief of the residence and in purchase to very best capture views, all-natural breezes and daylight. The intersection of these containers generates void spaces which, when cast in concrete, become strong forms.
This solidification of what was after void space turns what would generally be inert voids into area defining solids that defines rooms and areas of the home and imparts a captivating spatial quality to the property, speaking not only of the arrangement of the damaged containers but also of their memory.
The notion of memory centres on the notion that memory takes spot in area it is connected to the 2 a temporal sense and a spatial encounter. The cast form of the containers reflects the spatial experience, while at the same time those very deformations that form the bodily form also hold everlasting an occasion in time, reflecting the temporal sense. It is these imprints, these recollections, which inspire contemplation by the occupants of the containers rough lives at sea.
Concrete Anamnesis makes use of a sustainable concrete sprayed onto the deformed container formwork. Consisting of hugely insulative Liapor high good quality expanded clay as aggregate and employing new technologies that replaces cement with crushed waste glass, the cement has an estimated embodied C02 of less than 30kg/tonne. This concrete mixture final results in low embodied energy constructing materials, ideal to the exposed and harsh problems of the site on the headland.
Concrete Anamnesis final results in a getaway home that captures each the embodied memories and the elegance in the fragility of the deformed container, while providing a use for disused and structurally unsound containers inside the harsh costal headland surroundings.
