The Living Garden project is a residential and apartment house (with commercial use) in the Aspern Seestadt, one of the largest urban development projects in Europe. It is located in the north-eastern part of Vienna. This new district is very well connected to the railway stations, airports and historical centers of the Twin Cities Vienna and Bratislava.The project Living Garden is designed as a green, sustainable building.Save this picture!© Paul SebestaA central idea of ​​the project is to bring nature as deeply as possible into the city and offer the inhabitants and residents a green lung. In addition to the pleasant climate (oxygen, shading, wind protection), the building is also to be a green building for the residents and the surrounding neighbourhood.Save this picture!© Paul SebestaThe conceptual core is the forest (the open space in the courtyard), the green vein (the ramp along the façade), the leaves (the generous terraces) and the green skin (the façade of the building).The ground floor zone is generously glazed, with shop windows, shops, pubs, bicycle rooms and access to the lobbies of the three stairways.Save this picture!East elevationSave this picture!PlanThey open 37 flats and 19 apartments. The dwelling types are for the most part single-story “through flats” or over corner, two-sided oriented apartments. In the graded part of the building are apartments (three-sided oriented) with balconies and generous roof terraces planned.From the outdoor area in the courtyard with playground and lush vegetation, the green vein that rises along the facade, connects the green terraces and opens onto an intensively green roof. From these terraces the inhabitants have a wonderful view to the Lake of the Seestadt. On the largest terrace, above the 1st floor, areas for urban gardening are provided. In front of the apartments there are circulating, spacious balconies as a buffering zone.For these balconies we had the fleeting idea of a pueblo, a strong, archaic form; a Pueblo that does not work as usual as a subtraction, but as an addition. Thus, these additional spaces gained are a plus in areas that are added value for the resident and in the truest sense of the word “priceless”.Save this picture!© Paul SebestaIn these vertical connections of the balconies new, interlocking living zones are created. These additive regions first stretch in the XY-axis and then expand into the Z-axis. This creates communicative areas on the border to the public space (street/square), which function as an interior space between inside and outside; an added value for the user and an enrichment for the urban space.Save this picture!© Paul SebestaOf course, these areas are also programmed conflict zones, but we assume that residents can anticipate this added value. These zones can be used with their vertical green and green pergolas on the one hand as a retreat for the residents and on the other hand as a communicative zone in the so-called capillary (surrounding streets) are seen. This vertical, green skin is created by planters placed on the balconies (including irrigation) from which the vegetation develops vertically along the facade and continues horizontally via pergolas. The green facade is maintained every six months from the outside.Save this picture!© Paul SebestaProject gallerySee allShow lessArchtober 2019: New York City’s Architecture and Design MonthArchitecture NewsOpen Call: NAVER DATACENTER FOR CLOUD DESIGN COMPETITIONBuilt Projects & MasterplansProject locationAddress:Janis-Joplin-Promenade 6/5/EG/Top 1, 1220 Wien, AustriaLocation to be used only as a reference.

Professor studies border dispute

first_imgIn his new book titled “Contested Frontiers in the Syria-Lebanon-Israel Region: Cartography, Sovereignty and Conflict,” history and peace studies professor Asher Kaufman uses maps to illustrate the complexity of the border dispute among Israel, Syria and Lebanon, using this border area as a microcosm of Middle Eastern history for the past 100 years.Kaufman said his case study reveals a flaw in the way we view international borders.“There is always a gap between how we perceive political borders as impregnable, impenetrable lines that are controlled by the states and the reality that consistently defeats that,” he said. “This is even more so in areas of conflict zones, where we think of borders as lines of defense where the military stands behind one side, the other military behind the other side, and the border line is simply a war zone.“This has been the image of the Israeli borders with its Arab neighbors. When you zoom in, you see that the situation is far more complex.”To better understand the complexity of these borders, Kaufman said he pored through French diplomatic archives that were disorganized but held the key to unlocking the border dispute.“I knew that if I would find anything about the Lebanese and Syrian borders it would be there, because the French demarcated these borders, in theory, during the days of the French mandate,” he said.Kaufman said this border dispute is especially relevant to the current Syrian political climate and its resulting refugee crisis.“In light of the unrest that has engulfed the Middle East since 2011, if you look at the Syrian civil war, and you look at the situation at Syria’s borders, you get a sense … that the conflicts in the region, even the Syrian civil war, cannot be circumscribed within the boundaries of Syria,” he said. “There is actually great leakage.“The civil war in Syria has become a regional issue. Lebanon is affected by it. Israel is affected by it. And the tri-border region has become another arena where the civil war is being manifested.”This conflict and those involved in it has made the region he writes about dangerous, Kaufman said.“Because of the topography of this region, it has become an area for arms smuggling, for combatants to go back and forth from Lebanon to Syria and vice versa,” he said.“Because of the sensitivity of this region, Israel has now fortified its military presence and has also began treating Syrian citizens arriving now at the Israeli borders asking for medical assistance. It all takes place there in this very small piece of land that, despite its small size, can tell us the big stories of the Middle East.”Kaufman said using cartography to examine the conflict in this region – the first third of his book is all about maps – is “innovative.”“Something that has not been done by I don’t think anybody is the connection I make between cartography and the social and political reality, colonial cartography of the 19th century, its impact on boundary demarcation in the 20th century and the way this colonial cartography eventually plays a decisive role in how border populations behave on a day- to-day basis,” he said.Tags: Asher Kaufman, book, cartography, civil war, Israel, Lebanon, Middle East, Syrialast_img read more
