The goal of the Masterplan is to get the environmental protection at a city and neighbourhood level, with a polycentric urban structure in which the neighbourhoods (both those in the center and the integrated ones) play a very relevant role which will be taken into account in the detailed planning of the facility system. The historical center is set as Segovia’s representative space both at a urban level and in relation to the regional and national system. The Plan defines an integrated action over the historic area of the city, so that physical rehabilitation of the buildings, functional requalification of these spaces in the whole municipality and demographic revitalization are combined at the same time. The surroundings of the new high speed railway station are set as the element with a supramunicipal attractive, related to the possibilities of diversifying the local economic basis, but with the will of having the ability of configuring as a neighbourhood with its own identity. The integrated Neighbourhoods, old municipalities annexed to Segovia, are enhaced so that they can be thought of as an alternative to the adjoining municipalities in terms of residential capacity.

AWARDS - Gubbio Prize 2006 - National Urbanism Prize 2005

Menorca Island Masterplan represents the culmination of an extended sequence of initiatives and reflections about the identity of Menorca as a territory under transformation, marked by the singularity of its condition of Biosphere Reserve, which demanded the need for a Project able to integrate creatively the fragmented sum of local plans and sectorial actions. In that context, the Plan is born with the dual vocation of constituting the scenario of rational anticipation of a desirable future for Menorca and the integration framework of the city and sectorial policies with a territorial influence. Responsible of designing the most effective strategies to achieve those scenarios, it also constitutes the main tool for territory governance.

arquiberia HIGH-SPEED TRAIN STATION LOGROテ前, 2008-2011 International Restricted Competition by invitation. First Prize Client: LIF / ADIF Location: Logroテアo, Spain Program: Special Plan of Interior Reform alredy developed, aproved (2005-2009): Train Station, Bus Station, Housing, Urbanization. Area PERI: 213Ha. Train Station Area: 8.000m2. Sup. Platform area: 19.000m2. Parking Area: 18.000m2. Bus Station Area: 10.800m2. Sup. urbanization: 145.000m2. Housing Area (Towers): 41.250m2. Housing Area: 83.750m2. First Phase Budget (underground + Train Station): 108.000.000竄ャ Status: Transportation Hub in progress

The idea is to site the railway tracks and station underground and in the process create a memorable urban event, a hybrid of nature and artifice, capable of rebalancing the city centre by itself. From the outset it was believed that unifying the high-speed train station and the bus station in a single, sweeping gesture would not only have functional benefits but would also allow the creation of a huge pedestrian space, a park or artificial hill that crowns the huge green ring where the train tracks had previously divided the city into two. Beneath this hill, the train and bus stations create a landform building that, by means of its triangular geometry, reconciles the exterior organic shapes with the interior constructional ones, generating two crackled hypostyle naves around a central dome that, akin to grottoes, extend the public space of the park. To the north, next to the historic city, a great oval plaza is home to more intense activities, underlined by the setting out of five vertical buildings; towards the south, meanwhile, a continuous backdrop of medium-height housing permits the intervention to be closed off. Crowned by solar canopies, the section of the towers consists of a spiral of platforms or hanging gardens with the same materiality as the transportation hub, thus uniting the whole.

Osmose Station seeks to leap forward a generation to define the Paris metro and its urban role thirty years from now. The metro station will be a new place of meeting and interchange, a new landscape, welcoming, generous and connected with the city — not shut away in the underground linear infrastructure. With the subway’s circulation space encapsulated, the station will have a clean, safe and light-filled atmosphere, and its vault wºmodate cultural, sports and leisure amenities, hôtels industrielles for new businesses, apartments and showrooms. The life of the community is catalysed by the station’s programmatic density and physical presence, which ought to have visual pre-eminence in the suburban context. Osmose Station will be a new environmental, landscaping and architectural entity. The geothermic energy of the metro’s network (and that of motors and brakes in winter) will be accumulated in the vertical volume of air that embraces the building, to which the different uses will be connected through water batteries and heat pumps. The surplus heat accumulated in the daytime public areas will be transferred to the residential areas while the photovoltaic brisessoleils on the south façade will supply the electrical energy for the lighting of the public areas and station.

PREMIOS Proyecto finalista - Buckminster Fuller Challenge 2010 Proyecto finalista - Premio Zumtobel 2012 Proyecto seleccionado - Premio Internacional de Dubai de Mejores Prácticas 2012 Proyecto seleccionado - Green Building Challenge 2011

El proyecto “Plaza Ecópolis” tiene por objeto incorporar la idea de la sostenibilidad en la vida cotidiana, reduciendo el consumo de energía y transmitiendo la idea de sostenibilidad a los niños que, en consecuencia, se convertirán en adultos responsables. La combinación de sistemas pasivos de ahorro y activos de efi ciencia energética permite alcanzar la califi cación energética más efi ciente (certifi cación A). Un 50% del edifi cio se encuentra semienterrado para benefi ciarse de la inercia térmica del terreno y una gran fachada orientada al sur aprovecha al máximo la luz y el calor. Una capa textil exterior envuelve el volumen de hormigón, siendo parte de ella móvil para adaptarse a las posiciones del sol. Este elemento bioclimático difumina el límite entre exterior e interior, extendiendo el confort climático del edifi cio hacia el espacio público. En la plaza se hacen más transparentes al público algunos de los procesos como el de la depuración. El sistema de saneamiento de aguas residuales termina en una laguna donde el agua se depura mediante plantas macrofi tas. Una topografía artifi cial perimetral confina el espacio de la plaza y sirve de fi ltro frente al tráfi co y a un entorno industrial agresivo.

The Barcelona International Convention Centre is a 130mx150m building with two well-defined structural volumes. The first space is a one-storey 150mx85m columnfree convention centre. In order to achieve the long spans required, a structural solution was proposed based on a series 85m long trussed frames at 15m centres with pinned supports. The roof consists of a steel deck spanning between the bottom chords of these trusses. The top chords are laterally restrained by the diaphragm action of additional slabs located one-storey above roof level. This also helped the ar chitect to create additional useable space. The main entrance to the building is located at one end of this volume and features a canopy that cantilevers 15m and is tied back to the first trussed frame. A composite metal deck slab spanning between the top chords of the two first trussed frames and acting as a horizontal deep beam, ensures that any tension forces from the canopy’s support cables are transferred into the vertical cross bracing located along the perimeter of the building. This ensures the stability of the cantilevers and their support system. The second main volume is a 30mx150m building. Its structure consists of 30m long steel trusses supported on steel columns. Connecting both buildings is the Commu nications and Services building; a 10mx150m building built using a more conventional steel solution. These buildings sit on a 150m 60m multi purpose reinforced concrete basement, which includes a carpark area, plantrooms and storage areas.

About the form… The ruins mark the structure of the buildings. The Roman forum formalizes the plane of foundations anddrains. In the old town, my building sets out to express itself as pure structure—no cladding, no finishes. The bare concrete beams-cum-walls that form the façades are very varied, proving themselves members of the family of thedilapidated neighbouring walls, where plaster crumbles to reveal their original central mass. Filters are juxtaposed on the wall. This cinematographic metaphor is not just conceptual; it is above all physical, sensible. In the old town, with very close relations between buildings, interaction must be mediated, filtered. And this is implemented by a varietyof devices, with a vague cinematographic reference. About the space… The space is organized around two movements: a) The descent into the darkness of the cinemas, with the reflection of the spectators (in turn reflected, actorsseen in a series of mirrors) b) The ascent towards the light, towards the places of work. Two courtyards, connected but not continuous, accompany and construct the movement.

The new Szczecin Philharmonic’s building combines a shape and volume in harmony with the old town centre with a contemporary image provided by a glass façade creating a big box of light. The two-storey basement includes the car-park areas and the plant rooms. The superstructure includes the rehearse rooms, the storage areas, the dressing rooms and two concert halls. The big one will host the orchestra’s concerts, while the small one will host the chamber music concerts. The main hall, resting areas, lockers and other general areas will be located at ground floor. One of the most complex points of the design is the roof structure due its long spans required within the main concert hall and the entrance lobby. A deep concrete beams grid will be provided to take on these long spans taking on the roof and top floors loads. These beams are supported on concrete cores and concrete walls helping to shape the floors architectural layout.

The building is located in Plaça de les Glòries Catalanes, Barcelona, and was designed as an office block by French architect Jean Nouvel in collaboration with architects b720. It sports an oval floor plate and houses the headquarters of Aigües de Barcelona (Barcelona Water group) over a total of 35 floors. The total floor area is 43.500m2, with an above-ground area of 30.000m2 and a below-ground area of 13.500m2. The structure of the tower is divided into two distinct parts, each clearly distinct from the other. The lower part is 110 m high with floors consisting of a composite decking supported on steel beams and joists. This floor structure is supported only by the external skin and the central core, both of which are made of reinforced concrete. The external skin, which varies in thickness between 300 mm and 500 mm, has openings that are arranged in an apparently random way. These openings form square perforations of approximately 1m square. The density of these perforations is governed by the desire to reduce demand on the building’s climate control systems. This is achieved by allowing more perforation on the north side of the building than on the south side.

When addressing this project for an office building, we started off by thinking about the entire city block as a series of buildings with spaces between them to introduce light and air into the empty space. In this way we began to see the building as a mass that formed Rue Emile Zola, like a complex volume. We had some prior experience with this type of building in terms of dimensions, depth, and so on, that went almost automatically into the drawings and models. I always start this way, with a very abstract volume as a base.

The pincipal objective of the renovation of the Fundació Antoni Tàpies was to bring the structure in line with new safety and evacuation regulations, while also improving the overall complex. This involves opening the entire historical building to the public, with new exhibition, archive and educational areas, and concentrating the administrative areas in a new three storey pavilion at the far end of the plot; this exits onto the city block’s interior courtyard. However, the new Fundació Antoni Tàpies seeks above all to contribute to a new generation of museums understood as centres of cultural production by offering a range of spaces suitable for diverse artistic practices; it also hopes to create thermodynamic balance and enhance of the existing building. Another of the goals of this new generation of museum is to intensify the experience of the visitor, who is given an overview of the complex programmatic network that sustains the production of culture, as well as the Modernista (Art Nouveau) building itself, as an actual part of the exhibition system. The previous dialogue established between the original building of the Modernista architect Lluís Domèneh i Montaner (1881-1884) and the intervention of Roser Amadó and Lluís Domènech (1987-1990)—in particular through the installation of the Tàpies work on the roof (Cloud and chair, 1990)—is now broadened by the addition of another piece by the artist (Sock, 2010) and a landscaped roof.

The Casa Milà (1906-1910), also known as ‘La Pedrera’, is regarded by most as the finest of Gaudi´s last works. The refurbishment (1989-1996) was commissioned by the new owner to adapt the building for use as a public space. In order to carry out these works it was necessary to undertake a study and analysis of Gaudi´s methodology of structural design, and especially his theories on the strength of materials and the different structural forms. The refurbishment was complex and difficult to execute. It was found that in 2 of the 13 apartments, 16 of the original brickwork arches had in the past been replaced by steel portal frames. Because these arches were to be left exposed following the renovation, the steel frames had to be removed and the original arches restored. This challenge resulted in a dilemma for the team regarding the design methodology: On the one hand, if modern analysis methods were to be used, these would have allowed the team to calculate the ‘exact’ arch shapes which would have guaranteed that no tension would occur. Alternatively, the empirical catenary methods as used by Gaudí when he carried out the original design could also be used. This exercise allowed the team to understand the way in which the original structural system worked and the reason behind some of the minor defects (cracking) that appeared in some of the original arches.

Campamento Operation meant a new conception and style of management in urban planning development of unaffected military lands. This reclycling operation intended a correct introduction in the structure of the cities of important areas of land that permitted improving the urban tissue, creating public facilities from the unprofitable ones and collaborating with the housing policy (protected housing, rented housing, housing for young population). From the idea of street A-5 as a urban road, the proposed planning structures the area into a meshed grid conforming the main node of the planning to both sides, configuring itself, both to one side and another, from parallel interior axes. These axes or urban stripes are the formal, urban, pedestrian, activity seal to the whole of the proposal; these two main activity axes connect through a main transversal axis, “Central Axis�, which goes through the area from North to South. These axes have been designed to hold environmental connective corridors between the foreseen green areas and the platform-reserved public transport, as well as urban traffic.

If we think both the verticality of the tower type as the solar position in the city are evident both applications of the project: to finish the axis articulating the new extension of Salburúa and dialogue with the large wetland at his feet. The surrounding park causes a kinesthetic experience of great interest because of its picturesque sinusoidal trace, while the diagonal of the old airport footprint coincides with the direction from which to contemplate the historic center of Vitoria, so attractive in height as that spreads northward and eastward over the landscape. Therefore the proposed project unfold in two each tower planned for the planning and organizing making pivot about axes at the scene. The set is deployed around the parkway providing views serving a dynamic and integral bioclimatic design in which the towers collect energy from the three most favorable orientations, guaranteeing their proportions in the climate of Vitoria on optimization of radiation solar. This operation will achieve different effects of interest: slender towers gain without increasing the overall height, it releases a large area of public land and housing are obtained whose intense relationship with the landscape is the real manifestation of the sensitivity with which bioclimatic intended. The entire floor becomes liberated a large sheet of water at the foot of the towers, a liquid garden completes the visual axis of the extension and introduces the characteristic features of the territory in the city. These are thus ambiguous, and changing depending on the light and in tune with the natural framework that borrows the color and brightness as a replica of the wetland and support speculate where the towers look doubling its height.

In force planning for the area established an entirely closed volume to the outside with an 18-metre buildable depth. The project posed, alternatively, breaking the introspection of the block and double the main volume into a curved volume inside the block and another L-shaped one, showing facades to the perimeter streets, both with depths around 12 m. That achieves a dual objective: on the one hand, avoiding recurring to the block withn central patio and single orientation dwellings, making it easier that all the residential units enjoy the climatic advantages of the double façade. On the other hand, creating a transparency between the exterior and the interior of the block that makes the urban image of the whole richer , generating geometries and interior transitional promenades capable of extend the conventional dichotomy between public and private space. The porticoed plinth, aimed to commerce along all the facades, pretends to emphasize that urban compromise, contributing to the street vitality.

The project is a low solid with emergences and holes. The roof, that is in terms of surface the most important facade of the building, shows a landscape between domestic and abstract. From it, the arising volumes introduce a small and rural scale to the whole. Lightness and weight, wood and brick (with its specific construction and compositional systems) form a complementary world, like a mandala, trying to respond both to the aquatic and gaseous character of the site as well as to the need of stability, anchoring and protection a house demands. The complex should be understood not from the sequence of its elements, but from their interrelationship. In such a beautiful and unique place, surrounded by water on three sides, the project strives to create an impression of openness, distance and lightness. The complex should not appear hard, compact and massive, in the manner of a permanent protective dyke, but seeks, rather to open itself up and- relatively speaking- to melt away.

El carrousel es una zona de juegos que produce energía al girar. Esta energía es utilizada para generar luz, mediante un mecanismo tan sencillo como el de una dinamo en una bicicleta. El proyecto tiene además un carácter educativo: los usuarios del carrousel pueden comprender fácilmente cómo funciona. De este modo, los niños y los ciudadanos en general, se conciencian sobre cuestiones como las energías renovables y la sostenibilidad. La construcción se resuelve mediante elementos ligeros como cuerdas, cables y textiles, que son utilizados como estructura y elementos de juego a la vez. Una cubierta ligera textil, protege de la lluvia y da sombra en verano. De esta manera se convierte en una zona de juegos que puede ser utilizada independientemente de las condiciones climáticas. La iluminación del carrousel utiliza distintos colores que se corresponden con distintos niveles de energía producida al girar, la luz cambia de color según la intensidad de uso del juego.

The project to renovate the Plaza de Santa Bárbara was the result of a prize-winning architectural competition. It is part of a larger-scale operation aimed at transforming a dense central area of Madrid. In addition to the urban design of the public square, the overall proposal includes the construction of a new mixed use building including the new Barceló market to substitute the existing one, a temporary market, a sporting complex, and a public library as well as other services. The project defi nes a large pedestrian green area, with recreation equipment for children and adults, and walking zones. Vehicle traffi c has been reduced by eliminating one of the previously existing streets. Large granite paving stones alternate with other surfaces in a pentagonal geometric pattern, -similar to the forms of the newly built Barceló Temporary Market-, which incorporate lawn-covered areas, games and leisure precincts, boardwalks and a small glass pavilion serving as a book and fl ower shop. The new street furniture forms part of an integrated urban design and landscape concept that will link the Plaza Santa Bárbara with the neighbouring streets around the future mixed use building in construction

Barcelona´s Northeast Coastal Park, designed by Abalos & Herreros, successfully combines two unlikely elements –a municipal waste-management complex and a waterfront park and beach- innovatively integrating necessary infrastructure and public space. The park served as part of the site for the First International Forum of Cultures, organized by UNESCO to promote cultural diversity and sustainable development and staged in Barcelona in 2004. Originally cut off from the city by a ring road, the site had served as the city´s major services area, where a now defunct sewage treatment plant and electrical generator were also located. To showcase sustainable urban design, the existing incinerator now powers a new waste-to-energy generator. The steam heat produced by the incinerator is used to make electricity for hot and cold water as well as heating and airconditioning for the Forum grounds and the new Diagonal Mar mixed-used district. At the base of the incinerator is a new recycling center.
