KUTAISI INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT, GEORGIA UNSTUDIO


UNStudio has been invited to design a large extension to Kutaisi International Airport, which has grown rapidly since its opening in 2012. UNStudio’s goal for the large extension is primarily to maintain a user-oriented experience where the health and comfort of every single passenger is serviced through the correct application of architecture and spatial design. Facing the task of upgrading the capacity of the terminal it was decided to follow a unique and forward thinking approach that ensures the visual connection of the airport drop off areas of both departure and apron. With airport consultant IATA, five very clear and distinct functional islands were created: departure hall, security area, central passenger hall, back of house offices and arrival hall. Ref: 1793


SASSETTI TOWER, ITALY L22 URBAN & BUILDING


The new Sassetti Tower designed by L22 Urban & Building is the hub of Milan’s newly constructed Fintech district, an urban area aimed at developing innovative, technological finance. Built in 1990-1992 based on a structural design by the engineers Franco Morini and Emilio Pereira from the Morini Progetti associate engineering firm, the building – completely renovated by L22 Urban & Building – has a glass curtain facade featuring an overlapping pattern of slender horizontal and vertical elements designed to focus on both the layout of different levels and the facade’s structural grid. The construction floats above an all-glass double-height entrance. Ref: 4807


BORA RESIDENTIAL TOWER, MEXICO ZAHA HADID ARCHITECTS


With more than 50 floors, Bora will be the highest residential tower in Mexico City, and incorporates over 220 apartments of one, two and three bedrooms. Each floor houses a variety of unit sizes to create an integrated and diverse community of families, first-time homeowners, professionals and retirees. The arrangement and layout of the apartments maximises natural light, ensures privacy and offers panoramic, double-aspect views from all units that are also surrounded by balconies, providing residents with outdoor living areas.


The six apartment layouts surround a central core and are extruded vertically, with the tower’s facade articulating the folds and pleats created from the juxtaposition of these six volumes. The tower tapers inwards at its base to increase the areas for leisure, recreation and entertainment, located beneath ‘swirling’ canopies that transfer the surrounding streetscape vertically, echoing the dynamism expressed throughout the facade. The tower’s structure has also been designed for optimum flexibility and ductility, as well as an overall reduction in its weight, to best respond in seismic conditions, with the ten-storey canopies at its base providing additional lateral stability.
