Sigmund Freud Pavilion by Christoph Hermann in Vienna, Austria
The urban site conjures the common architectural dilemma of how to amalgamate the antagonising spatial qualities of the proposed pavilion with those of an unobstructed open space. The project attempts to achieve an architectural assembly whereby various spatial parametric architectural configurations fluently alter to assist the existing qualities of the site (a recreation area) and the demands made on the pavilion (an exhibition space, cafe).
The Sigmund Freud Park located in the very center of Vienna operates as the regions main recreation area. Therefore the site conjures the common architectural dilemma of how to amalgamate the antagonizing spatial qualities of the proposed pavilion with those of an unobstructed open space.
The project´s attempt is an architectural assembly where various spatial parametric architecture configurations fluently alter to assist the existing qualities of the site (recreation area ) and the pavilions demands (exhibition space, cafe) instead of creating a conventional figure – ground composition.emergent design by the use of dynamic systems, and their potential of surmounting the figure – ground segregation by examine the entire site as one interlinked system leads to an parametric architecture design which presents itself as a totally open and permeable object by maintaining moments of strong dynamic figuration.
Working with Gehry Technologies’ Digital Project a leading parametric architecture and BIM (Building information model ) software package and being in close contact with architects from Gehry Technologies makes the project ambitions both design-oriented and technical in focus. Furthermore BIM software supplying the promising ideas of not only ensuring architects a higher position in the digital supply chain but also helping them to maintain their design and concept ideas during the project development.
