SV K10A vào xem một số công trình khác thuộc hệ thống BEST của nhóm SITE nhé. Ý tưởng của nhóm này (Sydney Lewis và Frances Lewis) xuất phát từ việc đưa nghệ thuật ra ngoài đại chúng.

Ý định của họ là định nghĩa lại kiến trúc, để khi đứng trước 1 công trình của nhóm, người ta phải thốt lên:

“You know,
I never thought about a building before I saw this one”

–> “Ôi, tôi chưa hề để ý đến 1 công trình kiến trúc nào, cho đến khi thấy tòa nhà này!”

Via 1970: Arte pubblica / Public art

SITE developed the idea for BEST showroom series.

Introduction to the Stilt House

The stilt house is a home raised on piles. This form originated in aquatic areas over water or in areas of unstable soil such as marshlands or floodplains, but has since been adapted to land-based dwelling units as well. Stilt houses were common in the Alpine region during the Neolithic and Bronze Ages, as well as in pre-Columbian South America.

As vernacular architecture, stilt houses still are common in parts of South East Asia, Papua New Guinea, and West Africa. Common stilt housing typologies found around the world include the Singapore, Malaysia, and Indonesia Kelong, Hong Kong Pang Uk, Papua New Guinea Stilt House, Thai Stilt House, Vietnamese Stilt House, and South American Palafito.

The modern movement adopted the idea of the stilt, or pilotis, and brought the concept into present-day building. Mies Van der Rohe’s Farnsworth House is raised with a frame five feet above ground to separate the home from the floodplains on which it is built. Le Corbusier’s Villa Savoye is a poignant example in the use of pilotis to raise the house in a non-aquatic setting.

Contemporary architects such as Will Alsop have adopted the stilt to open up public space at the ground level in buildings such as Toronto’s Ontario College of Art and Design. And finally, in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and New Orleans’ rebuilding effort, many homes are re-adopting stilts as a method of keeping away floodwaters.
