Berlin - Los Angeles
Isotop - europan 5
Bern, Switzerland - second prize
The project isotop sees itself as searching for lines of connectivity and similarities produced by adjacencies. As a composite, it is determined not by the distant centre of bern but by a chain of qualities found in the peripheral field. It negotiates contradictory requirements through sectional organization and plan layout. As a hybrid of a motel and a sports park, the projects ties the economical input of the region into the site, activating the existing sequence of green leisure areas. grass-growing tilts form the roofs of the airy gymnasiums while establishing the wide horizons of the motel rooms. A park-like artefact emerges, densifying the integrating principles of landscape into a three-dimensional urban pattern.
