Transformations of Pontentiaal- TUEindoven
Eindhoven - fourth prize
After more than half of a century, the original master plan of Eindhoven, designed by architect S.J. van Embden, has been divided and redesigned in order to accommodate new programs such as residential housing and student facilities. Inspired by the Lars Von Trier movie, our proposal took the Modernist principles present on the campus as an`Obstructions Exercise`. The bridge system was enforced by the creation of a sort of hub connection point at the ground and first floor of the building. The grid and the flexibility of allowed for changes and adjustments of the different programs while the modularity was clearly expressed and re-interpreted on the facade system and the housing layouts.
