3X1 / JAPA architects : Javier Ponce / Spain, Barcelona

Proposal description: 3 X 1 , a new concept of building flexibility based on people’s connections — Revitalising currently unattractive public space, intensification and diversification strategy.Site within the UNESCO zone — Yaroslavl, a historical city with 1 000 years of history. Our goal is to respect as much as possible the historical layer at a depth near 1 m as well as the maximum height of 2 m. above the existing ground level, the upper edge of the ravine. We see this competition as a opportunity to transform the existing site into a new cultural HUB which integrates 3 different variants of the architectural design of the existing space.3X1 / JAPA architects : Javier PonceA proposal which focuses on connections and on how people is going to use it today and in the future .An architectural solution that incorporates in its design the site’s DNA and the surrounding elements(History, water and nature).All this within a sustainable and respectful approach to the site’s heritage and history.This is the main reason why we decided not to deepen into the existing level of the ravine (preserve historical layer intact), also in order to reduce the construction budget.A landscaped surface treatment of the ravine slopes is proposed (Pedestrian ways — local vegetation). The new building will knit together the surrounding areas via pedestrian pathways and new connection bridges.On the other hand, we aim to take the concept of “Flexible space” to another level, not only by creating a Building that can change its interior spatial distribution at any given time, but one that at the same time integrates in its overall design 3 different general objectives: to be a container for Culture (Museums-exhibitions-festivals), to become a Memorial site surrounded by nature and, during Winter, to transform itself into an Ice skating rink for the people. The Building plan layout is planned to be an exhibition-demostration continuos space, which can be subdivided in order to held different uses such as exhibitions, festivals, museums or congresses.3X1 / JAPA architects : Javier Ponce / 2

The Floor plan will held the Museum of local lore (MLL), the new Yaroslavl Museum of Modern art (YMMA) and the Museum of history of the city (MH). A new water mirror memorial will be located on the upper part of the Building. The Water mirror Memorial is a tribute of remembrance and honor to the Lokomotiv Yaroslavl plane crash victims .The names of each of the the players, coaching staff and flight crew of the Lokomotiv Yaroslavl tragedy are inscribed inside the reflecting pool as a powerful reminder. During Winter months, the water mirror will become an ice skating rink for the people.The design is highly sustainable, incorporating numerous passive and active means to reduce carbon emissions and contribute to create biodiversity.The challenge has been to ensure that this new 3 X 1 Cultural HUB meets the optimum design to position its performance as one of the foremost examples of building design in relation to sustainability whilst maximising the sense of comfort. We pretend the proposal to be a dynamic and inclusive one, where public space,the new building and the surrounding green consitute significant aspects of the area’s identity and attractiveness.The Project belongs to all. Implementation can be in small steps (Pashing strategy), but in the context of a viable long-term vision.

Passable roof-composite steel deck
Roof perimeter wooden deck with rainwater collector Water mirror will reduce building temperature in hot days

Main structure: supporting steel structure (pillars, beams and trusses). Possibility of using recycled structural steel, screwed joints and products from close-by metallurgical plants. Avoid long transportation mileage to reduce CO2.

Doubled glazed envelope, aluminium mullions
Polished concrete floor (interior)
Exterior porous ecological pavements and Hardwood Decking Water and waste management system
Heating and ventilation systems. Snow clearing technologies

Harvesting rainwater for use in irrigation of green spaces and non-potable applications

    3×1 is definitely an excellent proposal! the creativity of the designer really meets the goal of integrating a multifunctional project in such a special historical place, at the same time playing a key role in the cultural development of the city. Congratulations!

    Great Project… I like your focus on integration 3 x 1 and your emphasis on connecting with recreational, cultural & landscape Project.



    from my point of view there are so many proyects better than it…. for me this proyect it should be the last be chosen I’m an architect and usually I participate in contests like this, and it would be a huge mistake to vote for this project so definitely MY VOTE is NOT going to this proyect since sometimes a simple project is better than complicated as in this case

    Perhaps ASA Architects does not undestand the project (with j not with y). Finally this project won the contest (you can verify in the page), because it is creative and JAPA Architects is now one of the best architecture firm in Europe. ¿Complicated?..no. Each person has its opinion, but this project is great. Sorry of you about the times you participate and fail. The best won this time.
