Adecuación paisajística de la Almadraba de Nueva Umbría en Lepe / sol89

November 22, 2022 Agustina Coulleri 0

Real de la Almadraba was built in 1929 and, once abandoned in the seventies after four centuries of being dedicated to the art of tuna fishing on the Huelva coast, it was declared BIC (Bien de Interés Cultural, a category of the heritage register in Spain) in 2015. It is located in the protected natural area of Flecha del Rompido, made up of three well-differentiated areas: a residential area formed by a series of buildings situated as a camp where the workers of the Almadraba used to live; the House of the Captain, a building of greater standing and somewhat removed from the rest of the complex; and the set of buildings that allowed the maintenance of fishing gear, made up of the jetty, the diesel cabin, the tar smelting boiler, its chimney, and the tar pit.

Shenzhen Shuiwei Pedestrian Bridge / ATDESIGNOFFICE

Shenzhen Shuiwei pedestrian bridge is located on Fuqiang Road, Futian District in Shenzhen. The bridge span is 70.5m. This project connects Huanggang Park, many schools, and residential areas. Due to the increased traffic, zebra crossing becomes a dangerous and inefficient way to move across the road. We consider the footbridge an important part of the multi-level slow movement system in the city. The design provides a unique experience to the pedestrian when they cross the road, and gives the bridge a sense of quality and spirit.

Beijing Fengtai Station / gmp Architects

October 19, 2022 Collin Chen 0

With the new Fengtai Station in Beijing, the architects von Gerkan, Marg and Partners (gmp) have completed a complex transport building: in terms of square area, it is Asia’s largest railway station and the first railway station in China, which the tracks for high-speed trains are located above those for normal trains, which significantly reduces the footprint area of the station. Under its seemingly floating roof the new station – with two levels above ground and a floor area of almost 400,000 square meters – combines a system of different transport lines. Twelve tracks for the high-speed trains going north/south from Beijing to Hong Kong and from Zhangjiakou to Shanghai are located as terminus stations at the top level. The conventional railway lines with 20 tracks are at level 0, and two underground lines are at the level below. With these services, Fengtai Station will be an important new transport intersection and the largest of Beijing’s three intercity railway stations. At peak times it is expected that up to 20,000 passengers will use the station to arrive, depart or change trains.
