Kimball Art Center / Brooks + Scarpa Architects As we announced yesterday, Brooks + Scarpa Architects is one of the five finalists selected for the Kimball Art Center competition. Inspired by the “seemingly endless” blue skies and the unique blend of new and old within the historic Park City, Brooks + Scarpa delicately weave the heavy mass of the existing 12,000 square foot Kimball Art Center with the new 22,000 square foot addition that has been referred to as the Kimball “Cloud”. Capturing attention from a distance, the façade seeks to become a visual icon. The upper floors are composed of a conventional glazing system that is enclosed by a translucent honeycomb rain screen. The translucent faceted skin not only aides the buildings thermal performance, but transforms the Kimball Art Center into a glowing beacon within the streets of Park City.

Alejandro Aravena ELEMENTAL is a for profit company with social interest, whose shareholders are the Universidad Católica de Chile, COPEC (Chilean Oil Company) and the Elemental founders. Its field of action is the city: the development of housing, public space, infrastructure and transportation projects that can perform as an effective and efficient upgrade in the quality of life of the poor. ELEMENTAL operates in contexts of scarce resources, using the city as a source of equality, and moreover, as a shortcut to correct inequalities. When Elemental began in Harvard University in 2000, social housing was associated with a lack of economic and professional resources that had generated a lack of options for poor families.
The D*Haus Company - Dynamic House Conceived for the harsh, climatic extremes from 'Lapland to Cape Horn and Aleutians to Auckland' The D*Haus concept can respond dynamically to its environment by controlled adaptation to seasonal, meteorological and astronomical conditions. The flexibility of the D*Haus allows adaptation from winter to summer, and day to night by literally moving inside itself. The thick heavy external walls unfold into internal walls allowing glass internal walls to become facades. Doors become windows and vice versa.
