JUDGES’S REPORT

1st Place

Dubai Architecture School Tower Competition Dubai Architecture School Tower Competition Dubai Architecture School Tower Competition

This proposal presented a clear and high degree of understanding in relation to the Competition brief by providing a well designed tower comfortably supporting the Program set within it. The presentation is clear with well controlled night view.

The iconic shape of the tower as well as the choice of tower implantation appealed to the judging panel. Addressing the wider urban issue of mass movement and transportation with the use of a seamless connecting bridge to the Dubai metro is impressive and expresses the importance of the school being connected to the reality of the city.

It is also interesting that the proposal chose to distribute the professional practice zones within the entire tower to create a sense of a permanent connection with the study of Architecture.This is a tower that is realistic, feasible, blends well and integrates with the chosen site.

2nd Place

The proposal presents a nice interpretation of periscope idea a simple form by expressing the importance of the need for students to observe as part of the learning and training process. This very idea is then pushed further with each tower being designated for a specific academic year of study giving a “structured guide” to the students in the different academic year of study as they will be clearly able to cross observe each other. It can be seen as a problem in term of lack of inter-connection and exchange, however the project redeems this with the connection at the base and the top within the “Social Zone”.

They can also use the different horizontal links between towers if necessary. The Jury like this project for the strong image it represent and deserved to be on the top3.

3rd Place

The re-use of unfinished towers from the 2008 recession as basis for the new Architecture School Tower gives proposal a real sensibility in terms of the need for an ecological approach – A proposal that manages to re-think the original building with such elegant simplicity in adding elements to it.
The tower may not stand as an icon, strong on the idea and concept. This very ideology is one that young architects will have to pay more attention to and will be ever necessary in proposals of the future.
