CITY INFORMATION AUGEMENTED REALITY DISTRIBUTION
We see a great future in integrating Augmented Reality (AR) solutions in our field of work. By using popular mobile devices it can deliver in real time a new dimension with urban information to a wider range of citizens and other users. Data about the public transportation, traffic, harvesting natural resources or energy for the city smart grid, rent availability and many more. All that can be part of a city infographics system projected on devices we have in our pockets. For this purpose MJZ has established a tech branch of the office that creates apps and simulations for cities and their inhabitants, the real estate and contractors.
FILLING STATION OF THE FUTURE CAMPAIGN
As we prepared a concept related to one of the most popular city structures on a worldwide scale - gas stations ,we have seen that the location of the project itself is rather limiting as for media exposure. Such an innovative concept deserved to be shown for and in many other places to bring this important case study to a wider audience. As a result we have prepared an entire campaign for our client with a promotional movie and a presentation which was later exhibited in Venice, Berlin, Sofia and Vilnius. All this effort together with the project was awarded the prestigeous German Design Award 2018 not only for the architectural quality but officially as well for Excellence in Comunication Design.
GREEN CITY CORRIDORS VISIONS
We are big fans of vast green areas that can be applied in cities in a pragmatical manner, in places that need it the most. One of them are definetly big connectors, highways which cross and negatively divide city areas and cause a lot of issues for their citizens like noise or polution. After proposing local solutions in Seoul, South Korea and Atlanta in the USA, we have teamed up with local consultants to come up with a promotional campaign for a park extention on top of one of the main arteries in Warsaw in Poland which would hidden in a tunnel. Our non-utopian vision was focused not only on planting trees but on creating spaces for socializing for the local community.
LIFE WITH A TREE
MJZ contributed to and exhibition organised by the Association of Polish Architects SARP related to dream houses. As we love nature and are heavily working on resilient projects it could not be any other than a green vertical structure. The living conditions of a family and it's three generations in this unit would be strongly connected with the life cycle of a singular tree.
MIXING ART WITH ARCHITECTURE
The sculptures of the artist Kate Lipecky where combined with the versatile scenery from our projects to deliver many different types of atmospheres and related emotions. The collection of collages had it's premiere during the venue of Kate in the National Museum in Warsaw, Poland.
STRATEGY FOR ATLANTA CAMPAIGN
We took part in the American Institute of Architects convention which took place in 2016 in Atlanta. Here we had the chance to present our strategy for the I-65 Connector, a 14 lanes highway which cuts the city in half as in normal conditions rivers do. Only in this case it is not connected with nature but with noise and polution. In our vision we proposed stiching the city with green bridges which have a mirroring underside able to reflect the important part of Atlanta for by-passers. As a final end result we delivered not only a concept but also a branding proposal, which was delivered to the Mayor's office.
PROJECT PRESENTATION IN KAZAKHSTAN
We have prepared internally a presentation of our project for local authorities in Kazakhstan. The 4 minutes long movie was used as an additional mean to communicate the main features of the architecural proposal.
