SPARTACUS ALIVE: a Plaza for the Arts & a Cultural Hub / AIA, International Agency for Architecture : Marco Suarez, Lucas Alperi

We believe that Yaroslavl has the potential to become a cultural hub, a city where traditional and modern art meet and take advantage of the city ́s beauty to flourish and enlighten. What if the new complex became a capital for culture and the arts? Can you imagine the possibilities of a place where citizens of Yaroslavl and visitors from all over the world come together to enjoy the arts and learn from each other and from the rich traditions of Yaroslavl while enjoying its precious landscape?

Our proposal capitalizes on Yaroslavl’s context. It provides a new heart for the town, a meeting spot, a playground, a place for outdoor performances and exhibitions. It builds on the city ́s traditional urbanism using the existing churches as focal points. We take that strategy and take it a step forward by shaping our architecture into a building that blends with its context and becomes part of the landscape. Our design connects, frames, blends and empowers Yaroslavl ́s public space.

The historical center of city, declared World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2005, represents a perfect integration of architecture and landscape at the confluence of two rivers. The public and residential architecture of the city flows along broad streets dotted with large squares. The breath taking churches and monastic ensembles of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries shape Yaroslavl’s skyline and become temples to its local art in form of paintings and sculptures.

Using the city ́s old churches as a reference point has been the strategy for urban growth and it has shaped Yaroslavl since the late eighteenth century and the great reform undertaken by the Empress Catherine the Great. This urban model has provided historical continuity and visual richness to the streets and public space of the city. In our mind, it makes sense to build in this tradition.

Hа месте старого стадиона, мы представляем новый многофункциональный культурный центр.

“Новый овраг”, это новая культурная “артерия” в центре старого города Ярославля.

Историко-этнографический музей, Галерея современного искусства, открытая концертная сцена, центр историй и художественного образования, книжные магазины и магазины сувениров, кафе и все это сочетает в себе русло новой культурной реки, это мощный центр притяжения жителей Ярославля и гостей города.

После изучения богатой исторической среды и сети улиц мы пришли к выводу, что новый культурный центр расположен в осевой точке главных историких объектов культурного наследия, рядом с основными магистралями пешеходов и выхода к берегу реки. Aрхитектура нового центра является реакцией всех соответствующих окружающих его точек, перспектив и объектов.

Восточная часть участка упераеться в широкий и зеленый бульвар пешеходов, в западной стороне открывается гибкий и живой перекресток с видом на церковь, мост и выходом на берег Волги.

Наша цель визуально и “физически” объединить все эти элементы и в то же время создать новый, подлинный культурный памятник максимально используя все существующие природные и художественные ценности места.

Внимательно ознакомившись с исторической справкой, нами была найдена информация о том, что одна из первых масонских лож России образовалась именно в Ярославле. Масонство связано богатой историей и вековыми традициями, что должно пойти на пользу образу исторического музея.

Информация, приведенная в статье «Еще раз о масонах»

(Информация размещена по адресу: http://ysn.artvis-media.ru), и желание вписаться в природную среду участка натолкнули на мысль использовать план-схему усадьбы Николая Некрасова. Схема адаптирована под музей и искажена таким образом, чтобы максимально приспособить ее к функциональным нуждам здания. При этом читается первоначальная идея и сохраняется ее философское содержание. Круги плана становятся двухэтажными башнями-цилиндрами, в которых расположены кафе, лекторий, выставочные помещения и тд. Крыши башен являются озелененными площадками для прогулок. Башни соединяются между собой переходами – мостами, что позволяет без проблем передвигаться по территории. Внутренний двор музея покрыт стеклянной кровлей по металлическим конструкциям (колонны и фермы), что позволяет устроить внутри мобильное пространство, где можно расположить зимний сад, экспонаты, досуговые зоны и тп (на усмотрение администрации музея). Поверх стеклянной кровли устроен декоративный слой воды (5 см). Мощная металлическая конструкция кровли позволяет это сделать. Таким образом, сверху создается впечатление мостов над водой, создаются живописные виды с отражениями. Мостики поддерживаются колоннами, а те что расположены выше на распорной конструкции.

Основная экспозиция музея располагается по кругу под склоном холма так, что создается определенный сюжет, по которому посетитель идет и получает наиболее выигрышное и полное представление об истории города. Над этими помещениями расположен склон ( в рамках существующего сейчас ). По склону созданы ступени, покрытые газоном, на которых можно сидеть, гулять и тд. (напоминание о трибунах бывшего стадиона). Высотные отметки самых высоких башен на уровне 2 метра. Таким образом, проект очень бережно вписывается в существующую среду.    Читать далее

Time Ring / Super Architecture Studio

TIME RING CONCEPT -The hilly forest land and river are the significant topography of the region and the profiles are brought into the design of the pavilion to create the physical familiarity that stimulates the thoughts; and compose the tranquillity of the peaceful suburban ambience where the hills are green and the serene flow of rivers with pebbles paved route linking huts and cabins. To celebrate the history and heritage of the Golden Ring that revolves around the region of similar composition and sensation, the ring which is also in reflection of the existing running track; encloses the parametric undulating topography of the pavilion with a space that will display the local lore and history of the city. Therefore, making it the RING. The ring is further enhanced by the loop of the ravine and the interstitial space before the exhibition ring.

Time Ring / Super Architecture Studio / 2

This ring is then subjected to time; seasons that changes the surface of the earth as the surrounding turns white during winter and the reflective facade of the exhibition ring became white. The pavilion also loses the greens of trees and the landscape begins to be covered by snow creating a change in topography for a different program at a different time; including the period of day and night. Time is not constant as change is inevitable as it chronologically lapse through past creating history that makes Yaroslavl the historical city she is today. Hence, as the seasons and time progresses, the ring circling the ever changing surface remain constant in its value of space in response to the change in ambience and programs of the spaces around it. The exhibition ring itself portrays the metaphor of time in its clockwise circulation through a historical timeline display. The gentle drop of the roof of the exhibition ring in a loop also creates the impression of dynamic movement in correspondence to the slow progression of time thus marking the facade like a timeline reflection of the history and growth of the city. As a result, the design is entitled TIME RING.

HISTORY -The land of Yaroslavl has a long and rich history which became the fundamental foundation for the development of the city. The history started long before the 6th Century where the Vikings invaded the former Slavic land and her occupants. It is only until the end of the 9th century that the Slav tribes migrated to the hilly forest land of the Volga River. The Kyivan Grand Prince, Vladimir I then took the Slav tribes under his sovereignty where his sons then brought about the birth of the Golden Ring. It was Prince Yaroslavl who founded the Yaroslavl City in 1010 and the city had then undergone transformation into a trading city (1600 -1700) that later reached the industry era (1700) and now becoming one of the prominent tourism destinations in Russia.  Читать далее

Y.A.C. — Yaroslavl Art Centre / SAN SAN - architects : Lars van Es, Remco Siebring

The basic idea, concept of the project:

Yaroslavl Art Centre: Y.A.C. (concept)

The design for the Yaroslavl Arts Centre provides accommodation for both cultural performing spaces, the Museum of Lore and History as for the Yaroslavl Museum of Modern Art. Public spaces as a café, a workshop area for kids, an art library and a museum shop furthermore intensifies the relationship between city, her inhabitants and the Art Centre.

The Yaroslavl Art Centre is shaped by a landscape, perforated by six vertical volumes with voids.

By placing cultural performing spaces in the landscape a lively relationship has been created between visitors and performers.

The landscape separates the cultural performance spaces, a theatre and a café (placed in the vertical volumes) from the Museum of Lore and History situated in the area below the landscape.

The various volumes of the Museum of Lore and History are surrounded by the Yaroslavl Museum of Modern Art.

The atmosphere of the area of the Museum of Modern Art is defined by the intensely changing landscape of the roof, whereby different extraordinary experiences and transitions are formed.

The museum landscape is furthermore defined by six green voids with trees. The voids create a direct relationship between the museum and the landscape above and her visitors.

Design Concept and Process – Explanatory notes

  • Location analysis
    Yaroslavl constructs a city of the Golden Ring and has critical implication in Russian history both trading and political view-point. There are many monasteries and churches especially along the Volga River, which is the longest and the one of the most beautiful river and important infrastructure for transportation in the Russia. They have unique and eye-catchy shapes and facade and create unique scenery and atmosphere of this area. This area around the Spaso-Preobrazhensky Monasteries listed UNESCO World Heritage Sites in 2005.

    In the future, these sightseeing resources will be more valuable for this city and area. Conservation will be a keyword for this city. At the same time, the city should be planned the citizen and people in the city can live and stay in the city vividly and comfortably enjoying “now”. As for such historic area and city, this reconciliation is predestinated forever.

    Thus, we proposed in this plan to well-balanced combination and sequence between “old” conventional monuments and buildings and “new” this plan, and provide new value — experience for the visitor — in the synergy.

  • Approach design
    This site is planned as one of a new tourism resources in Yaroslavl. It means the design should be regarded the visitors are new for this place and unexperienced. Temporality to use is one of the main view-point of this design. Thus, the form of the building and views are designed to give some perceptions of the functions for unexperienced visitors. The visitors can access to their purpose without any stress and insecurity to enhance their experiences at that place.

    This approach is designed dual-directions. One is the north-east side approach to lead festival area through the green road park. The festival space is designed along with the approaching direction naturally to be likely to be accepted the existence and function.

    The other approach is the other side, the west-north side. It is approaching from the public transportation to the permanent collection exhibitions.  Читать далее

SITE   

The city of Yaroslavl, Russia is located 250km north east of Moscow on the M8 motorway, the link between Moscow and the Northern sea harbour of Arkhangelsk.

Yaroslavl has a population of 600’000 and is a large transport node, at the crossroads of a number of national and regional roads, railways, and waterways.

Yaroslavl is one of the “Golden Ring” cities, a group of historic cities that plays an important role in Russian History.

The city lies on the bank of the Volga River that forms the eastern boundary of the old city. The city is organised on a north south axis that is also constrained to the west by the motorway.

To the south of the historic city centre is the Kotorosl River, a tributary of the Volga. The intersection of these two waterways creates a peninsula that forms the southern edge of the city and is the location of the Spartacus Alive competition site.

Spartucus Alive / Richard Mitzman Architects LLP / 2

CONTEXT

The site is currently used as an open-air athletics track that has been excavated into the natural sloping contour of the area. The remaining perimeter earth banks create a sense of enclosure for the sunken sports arena and are used as grassed terraces to view the track and field events.

Adjacent to the site are the three historic churches of: St. Nicholas, Our Saviour and the Cathedral of theAssumption. These important landmarks are accessed along the pedestrian park walkway that links the peninsula with the Soviet square and the city centre. The park walkway runs parallel to the river and the alternative pedestrian access route along the riverside path. Public vehicular, servicing access and parking remain from the south and the existing western road network and train station.

CITY SQUARE    

Prior to the development of the arena around the turn of the century, it is easily imagined, based on the levels of the surrounding building, that the site sloped gently from the parkland walkway down to the south west corner of the site. The site, prior to the arena excavation, would have resembled a city square, with perhaps with a central garden.  Читать далее


Ревитализация стадиона «Спартаковец»

Ревитализация стадиона «Спартаковец» в историческом центре г. Ярославль / архитектурная группа prøPolis

Пояснительня записка к проекту ревитализации стадиона «Спартаковец» в историческом центре г. Ярославль. (арх. группа prøPolis)

Здание музея представляет собой объект, почти полностью занимающий объем чаши существующего стадиона Спартаковец.Входы в здание расположены на уровне спортивных площадок (абсолютная отметка +94,5 метров), отметка эксплуатируемой кровли +100,6 метров, таким образом высота здания не превышает 6,1 метров, а следовательно не выступает над наивысшей точкой склона оврага. Архитектура здания формирует новый ландшафт места, а точнее возвращает месту его исходный образ канала, водяного рва, зеленого оврага. Не возвышаться над оврагом было сознательным решением, продиктованным желанием оставить это место открытым «полем» с доминантами в виде расположенных по периметру храмов. При движении по бульвару Мира или Почтовой улице комплекс музея видится как зеленое плато, городской парк, прорезанный оврагами. Зеленая полоса так же служит пешеходным ответвлением от бульвара Мира, имея ту же ширину (около 80 метров) является звеном маршрута Советская площадь – Даманский остров, где расположен парк.

Ревитализация стадиона «Спартаковец» в историческом центре г. Ярославль / архитектурная группа prøPolis / 2

Центральная часть всего комплекса – пешеходная прямая «дорога-овраг» . На севере она начитается от аллеи бульвара Мира, на которой расположен Вечный огонь, замыкающий перспективу дороги. Движение на юг происходит при плавном понижении уровня дороги, завершается «расширением оврага» — треугольной в плане площадью с перспективой на храм Спаса на Городу. Храм является по сути одной из сторон новой площади, ее главным композиционным элементов. Здесь расположен главный вход в музей, вписанный в один из «склонов оврага» — наклоненных под углом 45 градусов стен комплекса музея.  Читать далее

WAVE PAVILION

The main idea behind the concept for the new exhibition space, in the historical center of the city, was to blend it into the surroundings not allowing the volume of the building to dominate the space completely, but also making it instantly recognizable and unique.

The main feature of the building is its external form. It does not elevate much above the higher street level on the northern and south-eastern side of the site. The roof and sides are shaped to resemble the flow of the river Volga and Kotorosl’ which merge together in the vicinity of the building site, hence the wave like structure. The effect is seen the best from the existing walkway bridge and the newly designed footbridge. Also the exterior wave design helps to make the building volume feel light and interesting. The form of the building is quite big, but because it is fitted into the surrounding ridges it does not dominate over the surrounding historical structures. The roof and sidewalls which compose the wave shape are covered in cooper in order to connect to the roofs of the two surrounding orthodox churches. The cooper will in time corrode from the influence of the weather and cover itself in patina. This will prevent further corrosion and give the whole structure a greenish color ensuring a noble feeling to the building. New pedestrian way and footbridge create a spots with interesting views, in which wave pavilion is a background for old churches in neighborhood.

Wave / Piotr Maсkiewicz, Remigiusz Roehle / 2

Over 80% of the interior of the building has been dedicated for exhibition space. Allowing for permanent as well as temporary exhibitions or vernissages to take place. Additionally all the spaces are kept in an open manner, which makes them easily adaptable for various purposes and functions easily serving the current needs. That allows the building to take on not only exhibitional functions, but also leisure, business or educational easily transforming into concert halls, fairs, convents, conference centers or lecture halls. This ensures the buildings self sufficiency and also lasting attractiveness as multiple events will take place there throughout the whole year luring different groups of people into this part of the city.

The main purpose of the building is to rise the prestige of the surrounding neighborhood and also extend the awareness of this beautiful part of the old city.

As the site is located in a historic district of the city and in front of a church, saving a good view to that from different points of the site was necessary and no building had to block this view.

On the other hand two parallel boundary streets were different in heights and this was an important thing which affected the shape of building in the site and caused us to design the buildings with sloped surfaces.

Due to limitation of height and in order to make a good view we had to enter the ground but we used ramps and slop surfaces to minimize the downward movement.

Next idea was about the relation between two sides of the site; which we wanted this site to play a role as an open urban space and in addition to its functions it connects the different two sides of the site.

This site is located between main part of the city and entertainment district and this site connects these two parts. Therefore we had to consider some spaces for the entrance of pedestrians, so that they can enter the spaces and become absorbed by the buildings and enter them.

Art House of Yaroslavl / Khak studio / 2

In fact some spaces are dedicated to the city in order to absorb the people and attract them into the buildings. In this way we considered the green plants and urban sculptures.
