Kronløb island / COBE architects

Designs for the new artificial island in the harbor basin of Copenhagen, Denmark, that will include houses, urban spaces, bridges and a large underground parking facility. The island will serve also as a stepping-stone between two new neighborhoods in the future city district and will break up the harbor basin into a number of intimate canals.

Kronløb island is an ongoing project by COBE architects.

Pyramid General Cemetery for London

pyramid-cemetery-Thomas-Wil

19th century designs for the construction of a pharaonic mausoleum upon Primrose Hill, in North London, proposed by Thomas Willson of the Pyramid General Cemetery Company; image from the book Necropolis: London and Its Dead, by Catharine Arnold. As the author describes:

 Constructed from brick, with granite facing, the plans comprised a chapel, office, quarters for the Keeper, Clerk, Sexton and Superintendent, four entrances and a central ventilation shaft. A series of sloping paths would allow bodies to be moved. Each catacomb took up to twenty-four coffins and could be sealed up after all interments had been completed. Resembling a beehive, it would be a thing of awe and wonder to all who saw it(…) At an estimated cost of £2,500, this massive mausoleum, higher than St. Paul’s, would contain five million Londoners.

Quarantine, SCI-Arc Undergraduate Thesis 2011 by Robert Gilson

Project description: Human ambition has surpassed the carrying capacity of the Earth. Quarantena facilitates the divorce of man from nature by exploiting the technological gap that divides the human from the natural. Q is a system for the isolation of environmental deviance. Q is a detainment network housing 1500+ detainees that cohabitate in 300 pods. Q floats within the uncertain atmosphere and above a mechanized earth..
