Bering Strait Peace Project: Dream of a new peaceful world

off architecture: bering strait project

french firm off architecture received second prize for their project as part of the bering
strait competition.

the bering strait is a sea strait between russia and alaska, is one of the biggest of its kind.
a threshold between the arctic and pacific oceans, the strait manifests a highly fragile and
sensitive climate, linked to the fabrication of ice, acting as a strategic zone for global climate.
an incredibly particular ecosystem connected to the surrounding climate is composed of very
rare and fragile species which includes belugas, walrus, polar bears, blue whales, dolphins, and orcas, to name a few.

for their design they did not simply propose a bridge or railway link, but decided to create an active project sensitive to the conditions of the site.

due to the straits relatively shallow water levels; the proposed structure is able to
descend to the bottom of the ocean, with only a few meters floating above the water level.

the structure works in compression. two parallel walls cut through the adjacent bodies of
water, held apart with bracing, which at times is habitable. each wall, 10 meters wide,
respectfully provides train and vehicle infrastructures at its apex. the massive structure
requires simplicity, a trait only achieved with a direct line that connects the two sides
of the strait.

acting as a viewing platform, the entirety of the sublime landscape can be witnessed,
experienced and respected. a powerful place where time dissolves, past and future
amalgamate and only the existing landscape reigns.

the structure splits the diomedes in two. a hermetic city, built into the 400 meter high
island, pierces the façade of the cut, comprised of residences, theatres and cultural centres.
a fractal view of a submerged city can be seen as pedestrians travel across the strait,
giving birth to a vertical city. a new mode of living is established. due to the innate
thermal mass of the subterranean rock, the diverse program is attributed natural heating
and cooling qualities. the surface of the diomede is uncovered with the rift of habitation

elevation of the diomede island

connecting the two diomedes is a 50m wide opening created by the structure, a series
of 10 meter by 10 meter modular cubes, faced with a polished reflective metal,
delicately float above the waters surface.

the peace park’s form is as symbolic to the past as it is to the future. the notion of time
and temporality becomes central; its unstable and transient nature is mirrored in the ice
that engulfs the site. fragile floating pieces of ice, known as pancake ice, maintain a strong
presence. they are constantly in collision with each other, until they transform into circular
form, and later solidify to create a continuous field of ice. this phenomenon is the basis for
the minimal footbridge connecting the little and big diomedes.

    “This is a dream-inspiring project,” Kyodo quoted former defence chief Seishiro Eto as telling reporters after a meeting with other interested lawmakers from various parties. “We’d like to promote it as a symbol of peace-building.”

    The Trans Global Highway would physically link by highways and by rail transport, all continents and major population centers, with the present exception of Australia, which, in the future, may be linked via very long suspended, pre-formed, suspended underwater tunnels from extending from the Philippine island chain. From a human point of view, the advantages of the Trans World Highway are enormous. First, it would allow rapid transport of raw materials and finished goods from near and far. In addition, the Trans Global Highway would offer a conduit for gas, oil and water pipelines, as well as communication and electric power cables. It should be noted that fresh water is a major issue among arid areas, throughout the world, including the Middle East, western United States, Africa and Central Asia. The Trans Global Highway combined with water pipelines from areas of abundance to arid areas, could benefit humankind even more.

    where did you got this pictures from?

    keep it up with the blog, its really good and powerful!
