LIVE ON OUR SPACESHIP EARTH IS CONTINUOUS MOVEMENT. MOVEMENT OF MATERIA, MOMENT OF DATA. PROGRESS. HAVING JUST A MOMENT OF TIME - ARCHITECTS SHOULD STOP DESIGNING JUST ART SCULPTURES, DEATH SPACES, AND C02 EMISSIVE MONUMENTS OF MONEY.
WE WOULD LIKE TO CREATE SELF SUFFICIENT ARCHI-ORGANISM FOR BOTH WORKING AND LIVING IN THE DESERT OF NEVADA. OUR PROPOSAL FOR THE HYPERLOOP DESERT CAMPUS IS A VEHICLE FOR A SUSTAINABLE WORKING AND LIVING ENVIRONMENT - AN INCUBATOR OF INNOVATION.
HDC (Hyperloop Desert Campus) has been designed to create a semi-independent natural microenvironment offering low wind resistance and optimizing its thermal isolation with a view to offering a comfortable space where to live together, learn, experiment and dream.
The layout of HDC follows a three-story elliptical shape. The three units have been designed and re-combined to always offer access to a semi-outdoor garden area. The main entrance to the campus is centrally located on its longest vertical facing North/West. The extension of the roof creates a welcoming shaded area before “boarding”. Once we cross its “portal” we find ourselves in the foyer. From the foyer, in front of us, we have direct access to the Arena, set between the ground and the sky, crowned by a semicovered garden to which you have free access from the four cardinal points. As well also The Museum tour area develops around the semi-garden, touching the two most extreme tips of the campus crossing the experimental laboratories and interactive labs.
Always from the foyer with its control reception we have the possibilities to move towards longer the left-wing and/or the right-wing. On the left wing, we have immediately the dining area, bar and a restaurant with a desert view. Proceeding along the left wing we have the first units of apartments divided into two floors. Towards the end of the left-wing, we find as well offices and the main laboratory with his 100m testing tunnel.
On the right wing, we have direct access to the second units of apartments on two floors. Keep proceeding on the right-wing we find as well offices and other laboratories. On the tip of the wing, we arrived at his indoor swimming pool and gym with a desert view.
