The future seems to be amazing, based on things simple, at the same time stunning, the future architects architects imagine more and more how to use SF ideas into reality. For Forrest Fulton Architecture‘s competition proposal, the Alabama-based firm designed a 900,000 sqf space area that comes to connect the city in a beautiful place with beautiful scenery to admire.
Architecture focuses on designing a modern urban landscape where you can have an overview of places around, this new style of life, supporting a model based on natural green trends combined with futuristic design idea.
Instead of a towering Iconic image, disconnected from historic, horizontal Yerevan, Lace Hill stitches the adjacent city and landscape together to support a holistic, ultra-green lifestyle, somewhere between rural hillside living and dense cultured urbanity. The 85,000 square meter (900,000 sf) proposal is a new model of development for Yerevan and Armenia of a high-value spatial fabric, dense with overlapping natural and urban phenomenon.
To create a new, firmly rooted architecture-urbanism-landscape, the project morphs the common urban element of Yerevan, the superblock, to the site, a truncated hill along the natural amphitheater of Yerevan. This act extends the amphitheater and completes the hill, creating more capacity or “seats” for the viewing of Yerevan and Mt. Ararat, the eternal icon of Armenia. Native plants irrigated with recycled gray water cover the hill. Intricate perforations recalling traditional Armenian lace needlework provide terraced exterior space, natural ventilation, and amazing views for the promenade, hotel rooms, residences, and office space.
