About me

Hello, My name is Aina

Hola, Mi nombre es Aina

I’m curious. Since I was a child, I have been a very active person, with concerns, wanting to explore and get out of the bubble in which we live in our day to day. I am a hard worker and very perfectionist in everything that I do. I have very clear goals and as a result I fully implicate to reach them

Soy curiosa. Desde bien pequeña, he sido una persona muy activa, con inquietudes, con ganas de explorar y salir de la burbuja en la que vivimos en nuestro día a día. Soy una persona trabajadora y comprometida y muy perfeccionista en todo lo que hago. Tengo claro a donde quiero llegar y por ello pongo toda la energía posible para conseguirlo.

My experience as a volunteer in associations with people with functional diversity and being in continuous contact with children of different ages has given me the ability to see beyond the daily actions of people and observe and understand the whys of things. I want to exploit the ability to find those little details to solve the needs of people.

Mi experiencia como voluntaria en asociaciones con personas con diversidad funcional y al estar en contínuo contacto con niños de diferentes edades me ha dado la capacidad de ver más allá de las acciones cotidianas de las personas y observar y entender los porqués de las cosas. Quiero explotar la habilidad de encontrar aquellos pequeños detalles para solucionar las necesidades de las personas.

The design is the balance between aesthetics and functionality. Something capable of bringing together two different philosophies with the aim not only of finding a solution but of giving it meaning. I am inspired by nature and culture and from a sustainable vision, I look for ways to enhance the values ​​of things to turn them into exciting experiences.

El diseño es el quilibrio entre la estética y la funcionalidad. Algo capaz de juntar dos filosofías tan distintas con el objetivo no sólo de encontrar una solución sinó dotarla de significado. Me inspiro en la naturaleza y la cultura y desde una visión sostenible, busco la manera de potenciar los valores de las cosas para convertirlos en experiencias que emocionen.

Llacuna

Place names like swamp or reed bed remind us of Poblenou’s origins as a marshland, which inspired the concept for our design. 8


Llacuna

Light as a revealer of shapes

La luz como reveladora de las formas

Based on an exploration of the inherent possibilities of light, the installation is intended as an homage to the past, using light to recreate the mysterious sensations of a swamp, as it reemerges temporarily in today’s urban surroundings.

Basado en una exploración de las posibilidades inherentes de la luz, la Llacuna pretende ser un homenaje al pasado, utilizando la luz para recrear las misteriosas sensaciones de un pantano, ya que reaparece temporalmente en el entorno urbano actual.

Amid the modern office buildings and refurbished industrial warehouses, our aim is to immerse active visitors into a plane of light that evokes a primordial swamp. The desired effect is to erase the urbanized ground, creating a misty humid feeling characteristic of the swampland underneath. The focus of the installation is on the visitors; as they sink into the horizontal plane of light – like the stagnant waters of a swamp – it creates movement that transforms everyone’s sensory experience of the space. They generate shadows, which encourages other visitors to wade into the plane of light and discover the ambience of the swamplands, the origins of Barcelona’s district of Poblenou.

En medio de los modernos edificios de oficinas y almacenes industriales reformados, nuestro objetivo es sumergir a los visitantes activos en un plano de luz que evoca un pantano primordial. El efecto deseado es borrar el suelo urbanizado, creando una sensación húmeda y húmeda característica del pantano debajo. El foco de la instalación está en los visitantes; a medida que se hunden en el plano horizontal de la luz, como las aguas estancadas de un pantano, crean un movimiento que transforma la experiencia sensorial del espacio. Generan sombras, lo que anima a otros visitantes a sumergirse en el plano de la luz y descubrir el ambiente de los pantanos, los orígenes del distrito de Poblenou en Barcelona.

Brot

A new experience of Bookmobile

Una nueva experiencia del Bibliobús

Brot born from the idea of ​​relating the natural environment of Sant Llorenç d’Hortons with its population.

Brot nace de la idea de relacionar el entorno natural de Sant Llorenç d’Hortons con su población con la población.

The main objective is to ensure that the proposed space works both as a stop for the Bibliobus as a permanent reference point that connects better with users. The experience of reading can be a private space of disconnection and relaxation and at the same time, an opportunity to comment on a group and exchange knowledge.

El objetivo principal es conseguir que el espacio propuesto funcione tanto como parada para el Bibliobús como punto de referencia permanente que conecte mejor con los usuarios. La experiencia de leer puede ser un espacio privado de desconexión y relajación y al mismo tiempo, una oportunidad para comentar en grupo e intercambiar conocimientos.

We use cork as a structural material because its extraction process is respectful to the environment, sustainable and its natural properties allow it to be easy to work with.

Utilizamos el corcho como material estructural porque su proceso de extracción es respectuoso con el medio ambiente, sostenible y sus propiedades naturales permiten que sea fácil de trabajar.

Disfrutar de la esencia de las cosas y vivirlas en el momento para no tener que immortalizarlas.
