Infrastructural Hybrid – Europan 9

competition: joint winners (2nd prize)
location: Linz, Austria
year: 2008


The proposal PIT STOP: CONNECTED combines components of urban building typologies and car optimized spaces. It adapts to the existing topography, local constraints and programmatic issues to form an architecture of layered complexity. The proposed programming and site integration seeks to establish a careful ‘grounding’ of the scheme in order to closely link the generated dynamics to the local community. This will ensure the project is sustainable in the long term.
