The Slipstream

Sensual Inspiration for Pride and Provenance


Landesgartenschau Exhibition Hall | ICD/ITKE/IIGS University of Stuttgart | Via

The Landesgartenschau Exhibition Hall is an architectural prototype building and a showcase for the current developments in computational design and robotic fabrication for lightweight timber construction. Funded by the European Union and the state of Baden‐Württemberg, the building is the first to have its primary structure entirely made of robotically prefabricated beech plywood plates. The newly developed timber construction offers not only innovative architectural possibilities; it is also highly resource efficient, with the load bearing plate structure being just 50mm thin. This is made possible through integrative computational design, simulation, fabrication and surveying methods.


Yunak Evleri - Cappadocia, Turkey

Set amidst the magical chimneys of Cappadocia, in the historical town of Urgup, Yunak Evleri comprises a 19th century Greek mansion and 7 separate cave houses connected by stairs and meandering passageways. Designed with respect to tradition, each abode has its own decoration style and distinctive Ottoman character, with mostly traditional handcrafted furnishings, beautiful antiques and elegant marble bathrooms. In the main building guests will find the dining room, a lounge area as well as two well-equipped spaces dedicated to music and recreation. Crowning the cave hotel is a wonderful roof terrace where you can enjoy romantic dinners by candlelight accompanied by sweeping views of Turkey’s most outlandish landscape.
