Design Competition - Riyadh Station with Gensler Architects

  1. 1. the “Termite Mound” idea Outside 35 ºF to 100 ºF 87 ºFSTORY OF THE TERMITE MOUNDTEAM 3FARAH NAZ SUSTAINABILITY & SERVICES
  2. 2. RIYADH METRO STATION, SAUDI ARABIADesign Competition: Major New Landmark Metro & Public Transport Hub in the centre of Riyadh
  3. 3. THE TEAM: RAMBOLL Services & Sustainability Henry Chan / Chris Soley / Farah Naz / Joe Dobson RAMBOLL STRUCTURES Shonn Mills / Tom Shaw / James Clay ARCHITECT : HOK THE CHALLENGE: COMFORT
  4. 4. RYAD, SAUDIA ARABIA24.6500° N, 46.7100° EThe Tropic of Cancer currently (Epoch 2012) lies 23° 26′ 16 north of the Equator.
  5. 5. CHALLENGE & CONCEPT:INCREASE PASSIVE DESIGN = REDUCE HVAC PLANT REQUIRED The Challenge (red items cannot be changed, everything else can!)
  6. 6. M&E CONCEPT : EARLY DISCUSSIONS WITH ARCHITECT Can we Protect the Core AND Optimise Natural Daylight ?
  7. 7. M&E CONCEPT : EARLY DISCUSSIONS WITH ARCHITECT Can we Protect the Core AND Optimise Natural Daylight ? • Maximise North-light • Reflective surfaces • Views to Sky
  8. 8. M&E CONCEPT : EARLY DISCUSSIONS WITH ARCHITECT Concept for Fresh Air Intake • buried ‘Earth Tubes’ brings fresh air in from remote shaded zone, with minimal air pollution (away from highways) • “free” pre-cooling of fresh air via heat exchange with steady ground temperature
  9. 9. M&E CONCEPT : EARLY DISCUSSIONS WITH ARCHITECT Concept to integrate Internal Landscaping with M&E strategy • Evaporative ‘adiabatic’ cooling effect enhances comfort for occupants • Plantations help to absorb CO2 and enhance indoor air quality • Helps to raise internal Relative Humidity to enhance comfort • Irrigated by rainwater harvesting system
