rock stadium by mz architects
lebanon and abu dhabi-based practice mz architects were approached to design ‘the rock stadium’, a sports facility at
the heart of al ain in the UAE. the designers worked with the site in order to achieve a visionary design that merges
architecture and landscape, blurring the boundaries of the built and the natural to create a space that allows the visitor
to interact with the desert alongside athletic activities.
sunken into the cooler depth of the desert sand, the exterior presents itself to the visitor as a series of sharply
inclined planes emerging from the ground

book mountain + library quarter, spijkenisse, by mvrdv
the ‘book mountain + library quarter’ centrally located in the market square
of spijkenisse, the netherlands. a mountain of bookshelves is contained by a glass-enclosed structure and pyramidal roof
with an impressive total surface area of 9,300 square meters. corridors and platforms
bordering the form are accessed by a network of stairs to allow visitors to browse the tiers of shelves.
a continuous route of 480 meters culminates at the peak’s reading room
and cafe with panoramic views through the transparent roof. any possible damage caused to the books
by direct sunlight is offset by the expected 4 year lifespan of borrowed materials.
