Our Gingerbread City “Rocks & Scissors” project is intended to bridge the gap between the playful and the analytical, volume and surface, as well as architecture and nature. While engaging the landscape as, quite literally, an animate gingerbread strata that interacts and merges with the architectural object, and allowing the candy-vegetation and frosting ornaments to invade and subvert the gingerbread massing, we wanted to allow for the baking and decoration process to not be only execution, but exploration and form-finding in itself.

Winka is lecturing April 24 at the university of Innsbruck in Austria. She will discuss Strange Objects as found in the recent book of Archi-Tectonics “Strange Objects, New Solids and Massive Things” a “below the surface” manual or taxonomy of the firm’s work and areas of research, describing also the singular highly specific nature of the design process and its final outcome.

This past International Women's Day, very grateful with our friends from Parametric Architecture for including Winka as one of the best women architects to learn from

Excited that The Architect's Newspaper featured our 36,000 m2 / 365,000 SF Valley Village Shopping Concept, the Hybrid Stadium / Concert Hall and the Field Hockey Stadium in the January - February issue!

The IDA 17th Annual International Design Awards

We are so proud that our design for the Pearl Dental Clinic, downtown Manhattan, won the Gold Prize in Healthcare Architecture Design Category for the 2023 IDA Design Awards!

The prestigious Archello Magazine announced Winka as a juror for the Archello Awards 2023, she is looking forward to join her esteemed colleagues.

Archi-Tectonics was part of the Architecture in Urban Hospitality + Interior & Art Composition event in Shenzhen, China, where Winka was invited as a keynote speaker. The event was organized by UPenn and CCD.

Our Gingerbread City “Rocks & Scissors” project is intended to bridge the gap between the playful and the analytical, volume and surface, as well as architecture and nature. While engaging the landscape as, quite literally, an animate gingerbread strata that interacts and merges with the architectural object, and allowing the candy-vegetation and frosting ornaments to invade and subvert the gingerbread massing, we wanted to allow for the baking and decoration process to not be only execution, but exploration and form-finding in itself.

We are honored to announce that Archi-Tectonics will be giving a lecture at the National University of Singapore this week! Winka will lead us through her latest research paper called “Synthetic Natures” on October 19th at the SDE3 Level for the Design Forum: Department of Architecture College of Design and Engineering at 6:30 pm.

If you missed one of the latest articles from our friends at Parametric Architecture Istanbul discussing with Winka our recent Hybrid Stadium for the Asian Games 2023, here is a short abstract from the interview.

Excited to share with all of you that Winka, the founder of Archi-Tectonics NYC, was part of this year’s COP28 in Dubai: "Prototypes For Humanity".

COP28 UAE brought together influential leaders from government, business, finance, and the broader sustainability community to highlight the bold actions needed to make further progress against the ambitious goals of the Paris Agreement and limit global temperature rise.

Recently, China Illuminating Engineering Society (CIES) announced the 17th CIES Lighting Award List, and Gongshu Canal Sports Park Night Scene Lighting Project won the first prize of the Engineering Design Award. Located in Gongshu District, Hangzhou, Gongshu Canal Sports Park is one of newly-built venue clusters for the Asian Games, and the first comprehensive urban sport park of Zhejiang that integrates the gymnasium, sports field, park and commercial supporting facilities.

The lighting design of the building cluster is based on "water" and "shore", with yellow of canal water waves as the main keynote, supplemented by glowing red, laurus yellow, glimmering blue and lake & mountain green in the colour system of Asian Games Hangzhou 2022.

The Grand Canal Sports Park, a multifunctional park and sports venue for the 19th Asian Games Hangzhou, China, has recently been awarded the China Construction Engineering Luban Prize, the top award recognizing construction quality in China.

The Eco-Park has two primary stadiums connected by a Valley Village pedestrian mall and five other buildings covered by green roofs. The stadiums will hold events, such as, field hockey and table tennis. The park is meant to be incorporated into the daily life of Hangzhou, one of China's fastest-growing cities after the games are over.

CTBUH Award of Excellence 2023 Winner in the Urban Habitat Category: our 116-acre Asian Games 2022 Masterplan with an Eco Park and 7 Hybrid Buildings has been recognized. Archi-Tectonics will receive this distinguished award in Singapore in October at the CTBUH Conference. Winka will be speaking.

This past weekend, Winka was interviewed in Istanbul by the founder of Parametric Architecture Magazine, Hamid Hassanzadeh. They discussed different topics about today's architectural design. Full interview coming soon!

Join Winka in the largest Business Architecture Symposium in the world! When? 1st, 2nd and 3rd of November2022. Where? Virtual and Live on social media. Watch the event HERE

This past Friday, the event Cocktails & Conversation featured Winka Dubbeldam, founder and partner of the award-winning firm Archi-Tectonics with Thom Mayne, founder of Morphosis. It was an extraordinary dialogue about design, accompanied by a custom-made cocktail at the Center for Architecture in NYC. See you all again in the next series in January!

About the Summit: In partnership with Detroitisit, The Consulate General of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Chicago, and Dutch Design Week, will host conversations with Industry Leaders from Detroit, the Midwest, and the Netherlands.
At the Madison Building, on October 13, 2022, minds will meld and develop creative solutions through a global yet hyperlocal program focused on Sustainable Urban Planning, the Circular Economy, Climate and the City, Smart City, and more. A multi-layered conversation is envisioned as a bridge builder to grow the best solutions for long-term partnerships and opportunities between the two geographies.

This forest-covered building for the 250,000 sf. Asian Games Fitness Center is set into the hilly landscape. It is part of the recent Hangzhou Asian Games Park to be held next year, Archi-Tectonics’ 47-hectare Eco-Park including two Hybrid Stadiums.

The sustainable Fitness Center is designed as a key facility for the Games, a lasting community asset, and an integral part of an Eco-Park that brings a recreational landscape to the heart of one of China’s fastest-growing cities. It hosts two Olympic pools, eight basketball courts, an Olympic-scale fitness center, and physiotherapy spaces.

Current project under construction: most people associate visiting a dental office with feelings of fear and dread. What if instead it was an experience of calm, beauty and wellness, a place where nature merges with technical precision. Archi-Tectonics design for a different concept in New York’s legendary Woolworth Building presents an innovative and unique answer to this question.

Winka's talk in Archi-Tectonics latest book: "Strange Objects, New Solids and Massive Things" at the Nieuwe Instituut in Rotterdam, NL.

We are proud to share the Archi-Tectonics’ article on our recent 47-hectare/116 acre Asian Games 2022 Masterplan & Hybrid Stadiums by Braun Publishing from Switzerland.

This 5,000 seat centerpiece for Archi-Tectonics’ Asian Games 2022 Masterplan, has as its main goal the creation of a Hybrid Stadium / Concert Hall with an enduring legacy for Hangzhou.

Archi-Tectonics Hybrid Stadiums buildings mentioned in World-Architects Magazine, article by John Hill

Archi-Tectonics noticed some wonderful quotes on social media from local neighbors from the Hangzhou Province that we would like to share:

For example, the Deputy Director of Zhejiang Provincial Department of Education with 1.83 million followers said: "The Grand Canal Asian Games Park located in the north of Hangzhou City is an organic combination of parks and stadiums. People and vehicles are separated, the greening rate is super high, and the design concept is novel. It is a new place for citizens to play!"

We are proud to announce that BOOQ PUBLISHING will share our recently completed 5,400 sf. 140 Duplex Penthouse in Tribeca and the 5,880 sf. 512GW SoHo Townhouse in NYC with 09 spreads of photos and renderings.
