Smart Centre by Paul Kaloustian in Armenia
The under-construction Smart Center building is located in the north province of Lori, Armenia, the site is a magnificent piece of land surrounded by majestic mountains. The structure’s organic form embraces the landscape by creating a sinuous ribbon like walkway creating a 7000 m2 courtyard. The one floor building is spread horizontally while following the topography of the site. The Smart Center accommodates a program dedicated to education and community with computer labs, classes, an auditorium and a restaurant while other adjacent functions include sports fields, open air workshops and an outdoor auditorium. A separate small structure includes a day care and a nursery and another houses a half underground guest house facing the southern sun with 14 rooms and amenities . The Smart Center acts more like a landscape than a building giving freedom for the visitor to have his own path creating experiences indoor as well as outdoor. Only a part of the building is enclosed by a glass and concrete envelope generating relationships between the inside and the outside that are treated equally. The structure extends with a continual roof aiming to provide an open environment for knowledge and personal exploration. (via Divisare)
