The site is located on a site in central Berlin. After being razed by the authorities at the beginning of the 20th century, the area was developed by the Architect Hans Poelzig as one of the first major urban renewal schemes in Germany and subsequently partially destroyed during WWII. Our design for the Ensemble of german publishing company Suhrkamp references both the physical context as well as the rich history of the surrounding area. Urban scale The project redefines the urban block as a heterarchical antithesis to the standard hierarchic berlin Block which typically articulates a „show“ facade and urban spaces of secondary value in the interior of the block.Save this picture!© Laurian GhinitoiuSave this picture!Site planSave this picture!© Laurian GhinitoiuThe individual buildings of the project cease to have front and back facades but are surrounded by continuity of public and urban space. The private becomes public and vice-versa. The south-facing public square is formed by the positioning of the main building to the north and thus completes the sequence of public squares and parks. It both opens the block and closes the urban figure of „Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz“ which is centered around the Volksbühne Theater. Facing busy Torstrasse to the north, the project presents itself more closed, the cantilevered volume connects the neighboring facades and recreates the historic street front in an abstract manner. The strong horizontality references the formal dynamic of Poelzigs architecture and translates it into a contemporary language.Save this picture!© Laurian GhinitoiuFunctionality. The Ensemble consists of three parts: The publishing house, an extension office building, and a residential block. All ground floors have high-frequency uses such as an art gallery, Restaurant, and an e-bike store. Publishing House The 6 floors of the publishing house are connected by a „narrative“stair. This central element of the design enables free movement within the various (vertically located) departments and stages of bookmaking. At the same time, this stair defines a strong concrete pillar that grounds the architectural volume in the urban fabric. Thus, the narrative stair functions both on an urban and interior design level and was one of the central ideas of the spatial conception.Save this picture!© Laurian GhinitoiuSave this picture!Section AASave this picture!© Laurian GhinitoiuThe office floors are divided into the large open-plan spaces to the south and individual rooms (for the editors) to the north. The facade mirrors this spatial approach, with expansive fixed-glazing openings to the public square in the south and smaller, more vertical proportions to busy Torstrasse in the north. The spatial idea of the office thus operates on the urban, architectural, and interior scale. The Shelving and furniture designed by Kinzo complement this approach to include the detail level, creating a unified approach in all scales. Residential The residential units are grouped together in a concrete-faced block, large fixed glazing extends these spaces into the urban realm and connects them to the public square.Save this picture!© Laurian GhinitoiuSave this picture!© Laurian GhinitoiuMateriality and Construction. All interior surfaces remain in rough, exposed concrete, contrasting with the smooth and sharp-edged aluminum facade with expansive fixed glazing. Operable aluminum panels open like scales and connect the workspaces with the urban realm. Office spaces are mechanically ventilated and cooled through a passive cooling system embedded in the concrete ceilings.Save this picture!© Laurian GhinitoiuProject gallerySee allShow lessDesigners in Residence Kortrijk 2020OpportunitiesPasochoa House / Juan Esteban Ruales LasoSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz, 10178 Berlin, GermanyLocation to be used only as a reference.

More than three decades after Tiananmen, China remains press freedom’s number one enemy

first_img ChinaHong KongAsia – Pacific Condemning abuses ImprisonedFreedom of expressionViolence In rural India, journalists face choice between covering pandemic and survival Mongolia : RSF urges presidential candidates to voice support for press freedom News June 2, 2021 Find out more RSF_en As the world commemorates the 31st anniversary of the Tiananmen Square Massacre, Reporters Without Borders (RSF) calls on democracies to unite to defend freedom of the press, a fundamental right claimed by the protesters and which Beijing is now attacking on a global level. Receive email alerts Pakistani TV anchor censored after denouncing violence against journalists Help by sharing this information Freedom of the press is enshrined in Article 35 of the Chinese Constitution and was one of the main demands during the Tiananmen Square protests, which ended in a bloodshed when the regime killed several thousand Chinese citizens on 4 June 1989. Thirty-one years later, the state apparatus and the Chinese Communist Party continue to flout this fundamental right on a daily basis and are now expanding their repressive practices to the rest of the world as shown in a report published last year by RSF.“Thirty-one years ago, thousands of peaceful protestors were slaughtered for demanding the enforcement of fundamental freedoms, including freedom of the press,” said Cédric Alviani, Reporters Without Borders (RSF) East Asia bureau head. “If the Chinese authoritarian model is not opposed with more strength, not only will the Tiananmen protesters have died in vain, but independent journalism will gradually give way to Chinese-style propaganda and democracy will falter.”Recently, the Chinese regime has instrumentalised the Covid-19 pandemic as a way to further tighten its control over the media and social networks: six journalists are being detained and nearly 900 netizens have been punished for sharing censored information on the virus. These measures have only reinforced an extremely authoritarian system where the media serves state propaganda and where the internet is controlled through an ultra-sophisticated censorship system known as the “Great Firewall of China”.In the Special Administrative Region of Hong Kong, Beijing’s clutch on media and police violence against journalists has led to an unprecedented deterioration of press freedom, which has resulted in a decline from the 18th rank in 2002 to the 80th rank this year in RSF’s World Press Freedom Index. In Hong Kong and also Macau, another supposedly autonomous region, the authorities have canceled events commemorating the Tiananmen Square Massacre citing the need to enforce social distancing measures as an excuse.Last year, in an investigative report entitled “China’s Pursuit of New World Media Order”, RSF revealed Beijing’s strategy to control information beyond its borders: modernising its international TV broadcasting; buying extensive amounts of advertising in international media; and also employing blackmail, intimidation and harassment on a massive scale.China, 177th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2020 World Press Freedom Index, is the world’s worst jailer of journalists with at least 113 of them behind bars.
