Pavillon Sur le Burg
Object
2002 Brugge Belgium

Architect: Toyo Ito



The old city of Brugge was designated Cultural Capital of Europe 2002. As a symbol of the encounter between historical culture and contemporary culture in the context of town planning that strives for coexistence of history with the future, Toyo Itoh's pavilion was constructed in the Brugge city center.

As though suspended above a shallow circle of water in the ruins of the Roman-influenced cathedral, this eloquent pavilion abundant in contemporary sensibility has over time blended into the history of Brugge and now exerts a presence as one face of that city.The pavilion was originally conceived as a single-year project for Brugge's term as Cultural Capital of Europe during 2002, but as large numbers of its citizens called for it to last beyond this time, it was decided to preserve the pavilion into the future.

Silodam is a primarily residential complex situated on a pier in Amsterdam. In addition to 157 homes, the complex contains 600 square meters of commercial space.The housing units are clustered into small "neighborhoods" of 4 to 8 houses. Each such cluster is given its own identity through different colors and materials.
d0079151_1381147.jpgThe resulting blocks of color, together with the materials, shape and proportion, result in a building that resembles a container ship. Through this design, the building makes reference to the port aspect of the city.The building is designed to provide a wide variety of units to respond to different needs and wishes of different individuals. The complex consists of different types of units that vary in width, depth, number of stories, window types, presence and type of outdoor space / balcony, layout and access method.To address the issue of the views of the water from the pier being blocked by the building, the designers penetrated the base of the building with a wide passageway that leads to a pubicly accessible balcony. There is also a space under the building where home owners at Silodam can moor their personal boats.
