The beautiful city of Canberra is the outcome of Griffins’ plan, a compelling work of landscape planning and an inspirational blend of theories such as ‘City Beautiful’ and ‘Garden City’ movements. However, the intervention of social, economic, cultural and political factors managed to alter the plan to a great extent. As a result, the ‘work of art’ has been only partly realised on the ground. Thus, the project focuses on regenerating Canberra in terms of accessibility, waterfront and land use development. It reinterprets Griffin’s legacy by identifying and following strong axes and varied urban schemes. The character of the city has been enhanced through appropriate horizontal and vertical distribution of building mass that maintains the city in scale with its landscape and increase access to open spaces. The sustainable mobility approach focuses on minimizing traffic congestion in city centre while maintaining a legible and functional hierarchy of existing streets by introducing the new Light Rail and pedestrian schemes. One of the most important strategic propositions focuses on extending the city towards its lake and parklands by reinstating Griffin's main axes and avenues and by incorporating new boulevards and pedestian streets to improve city connectivity.

Finally, It has been envisaged a large waterfront promenade for a variety of public activities. Opposetly, the perimeter quarter schemes of blocks in intended to propose quite, calm and private open spaces for medium housing developments, those that can easily connect with near vibrant and busy avenues.

At an architectural scale, the project aims the transformation of the typical concept of ‘polluting industry (urban waste treatment)’ by readapting its visual image into a more sustainable, socially responsible and highly efficient building. To achieve this, ‘The concept of Factory’ has been re-adapted into three recognizable elements:

At an urban scale, it has been developed a Masterplan of 350 Ha. that envisage the future natural restoration of the landfill area by implanting a system of natural platforms for recreation, leisure, adventure sports and scientific research with huge public spaces with exhibition areas and biotechnological nursery of local flora & fauna. In addition, a series of other industrial facilities such as Leachate Treatment Plants, a Landfiill Gas Recovery Plant and an Energy Plant, will serve to transform the by-products generated during the next 50 years.

Arequipa (Peru) metropolitan area has 13 districts with that produce approximately 800 Tons of waste per day and it is estimated that will increase to 3000 Tons of waste per day during the following 35 years. Nowadays, all this garbage is dumped in almost 12 Informal dump-sites located in city’s perimeter. In this context , this project responds to the need for an appropriate classification, treatment, processing and final disposal of city’s urban waste.

Overpopulation and overconsumption processes all over the world have conditioned the rise of new environmental and social problems such as scarcity, overcrowding, lack of shelter and waste improvement. This is where the ECO-CYLINDER has a crucial participation in creating new architecture typologies, incorporating in its construction the most common residual materials dumped worldwide: plastic bottles and steel cables. The cylinder can be used in many ways, adapted according to the site & weather conditions, number of users, function and material availability. The bottles, set in tubular arrangements, may storage water, be covered with natural materials and act as a empty container for flotation. The cylinder turns into an inhabitable space capable of being used in horizontal and vertical orientation, being a multifunctional object that helps users in their daily tasks.

Covering materials











The main materials can be obtained from garbage, reducing considerably manufacturing costs. The bottles transparency allows the object to mimic with the landscape. Moreover, the cables used to join the bottles can be helpful to connect electronic devices with external power and information networks. Finally, the object may be covered with other natural materials obtained from the local context as a protection and mimicry strategy. The assembly process is very simple. It is necessary to join the bottles with cables and create two walls that will be intertwined one to each other. These will be wrapped to form cylindrical modules that will be piled according to needs. Each module measures 4 meters of diameter and 2.10 meters height, approximately.

Agricultural Tourism in Post-colonial Cities Wherever we go for vacations, we are looking for comfortable hotels and resorts. Many of them are located in natural contexts such as forests and exotic paradises promoting a sustainable tourism. On the contrary, some other irresponsible architecture designs have changed the cultural, economical and social conditions, establishing all-in-one concrete monuments with irreparable consequences for local habitats. Under these circumstances, the NEW MASTERPLAN for the Chili River Borders has been elaborated under the systemic approach and proposes a new alternative for touristic facilities in post-colonial LatinAmerican cities. The project promotes the idea of merging the urban and rural touristic attractions in a city where the urban sprawl has gradually suffocated the river basin and the countryside. Consequently, agriculture, tourism and cultural heritage will create a new urban network to unite both sides of the city, geographically and socially divided by the river. The fields will become a tool for modelling a changeable and productive landscape, making it an attractive destination for tourists and locals alike. The masterplan establishes new paradigms such as locating hostels inside cultivated crops, the experience of living in buildings made of recycled materials and experimenting to work with the local farmers in their daily task (plowing, sowing); increasing the environmental awareness and skills transferability. Both riversides will be restored and designed as a serious of natural slabs covered with rocks and vegetation. The abandoned tanneries located in the west border will be transformed into a post-industrial museum, a convention centre, public libraries, art galleries, theatres and typical food restaurants. The gas station located next to the industrial facilities will be replaced with a new BIOMASS STATION, where people will be able to learn, and participate in activities such as compost elaboration, biogas processing and solar energy production. Finally, all old slums and colonial houses next to river will be restored for creating new residential spaces.

CONTEXTUAL RESPONSE & ECONOMICAL BENEFITS The old abandoned tanneries restoration will be an opportunity to open new trading markets and broaden the cultural and commercial markets. The economical regulation established between the touristic and agricultural activities is a homeostatic system that maintain a permanent level of incomes and regulate the local market.

750 000 sqm

The masterplan proposes the restoration of the current system of quarries located 15 Km. from the Arequipa’s city centre. They are part of natural cliffs and valleys where city has historically obtained “the sillar”, a porous volcanic stone that has been the principal construction material for more than 200 years, being used in more than 60 % of the city. Currently, these site has been awarded as an UNESCO Humanity Cultural heritage but is being threatened for illegal invasions promoted by private enterprises that are interested in commercializing this material with any kind of control and regulation. In this sense, the NGO CIED in accordance to the Regional Government offered me the opportunity to design an holistic masterplan in order to promote, restore and protect this natural landscape and population self-awareness. The project focuses on using local materials and construction methods in order to maintain the natural landscape and promote new touristic routes inside these “sillar valleys”. Several famous facades of local buildings will be carved into the cliff and visitors will have the opportunity to see local workers in their daily tasks such us carving, digging, fragmenting and sculpting the rocks. As well as amplifying and promoting employment the proposal pretends to create new touristic attractions in order to diminish the intention of privatization and overconsumption of “sillar” as well as a new strategy for education. The different pedestrian routes (inside the canyon) will be between 1 and 2 hours long and will cover a distance from 1.1 Km to 3.0 km. according to tourists’s necessities.

The park is located inside an old abandoned train station and it will recover and recycle the existing buildings, machinery and rails to transform them into a productive park, a public garden and a big active museum, as well as proposing new cultural buildings with similar architecture morphology with the purpose of generating physical and spatial reference. Currently a private enterprise operates the infrastructure inside the area and they only will be leaving the site in 10 years. This situation required a Phase Program Strategy. There have been located ecological modules designed for environmental education and all rail cars will be transformed into locomotive greenhouses and galleries. Grey water will be recovered to irrigate the park and all organic waste will be transform into compost as an strategy for reducing maintenance costs. The park is surrounded by a green belt of trees, generating naturally shadowed paths and a continuous forest image from outside. The open spaces and promenades will be planted with local endemic species of flora and seasonal crops to insure new economic income, generating technical education and employment.

The project is located at the Chili river valley, on a cliff 15 m. above the water level. All visuals are orientated towards the Colonial city centre and some old colonial houses are located inside the plot. It has been elaborated a complex program that will offer cultural activities and housing services not only for students, but also to the general public and local neighbors. The basic concept for this project was to create two different circulations systems. The first circulation system is located in the ground level. Boulevards, streets and private squares connect all public activities such as expectation, exhibition and sport that will serve public users. On the other hand, the second group of restricted circulations are located in the following levels above the squares and they are designated to connect student apartments and green roofs. The green roofs replicate the pre-existent agricultural landscape and support productive and leisure activities. Some old colonial houses (mansions) found in site will be restored and adapted to new cultural programs. The overall design will have to take into consideration the typical architectural and urban aspects studied from the adjacent colonial houses and city centre. Finally, due to the fact that apartments will accommodate graduates and undergraduates students from 3 different universities, it has been designed a system of independent apartments (typologies) that are organized in differentiated groups in order to allow the best solar exposure, thermal comfort and a optimum illumination quality of studies and rooms.


' punta sal ' aqua lodge Location

Punta Sal Beach, Tumbes | Peru


Design Studio 07 A Undergraduate - 4th Year (Individual)


Arch. Ulrich Zanabria Ojeda


17 400 sqm

Land scarcity and dangerous geological conditions are problems that reduce possibilities to invest in tourism along the north shores of Peru. Although the sceneries emulate a Caribbean paradise, there is still a lack of good facilities, a fact that motivated me to design a floating lodge, 350 meters far from the shore. As a perforated membrane, the floating docks join each and every building supported over concrete pillars. The facilities offer a plenty of interesting services such as hostelling in bungalows, boat renting, sustainable fishing, diving instruction, yacht club, restaurant, discotheque, workshops and a protected marina. The reinforced-concrete dikes have been designed according to predominant tide movements, deflecting currents along its longitudinal axis and offering protection to all ships and buildings located behind.


' the cube ' Bus stop




Product Design Course Undergraduate - 3th Year (Individual)


Msc. Arch. Gustavo Sanchez R.


200 sqm

The single more important public object used for transportation,communication and social relationships is the BUS STOP. Moreover, it is a space of social friction and although it is designed to satisfy collective necessities, it is also useful for individual activities such as commuting, information and rest. In our proposal, the BUS STOP is reinterpreted as a cubical system that is able to add or remove modules according to the amount of users and the space availability. These modular variety offers different types of associations and incorporate additional urban furniture such as benches, rails (stand-up support), bins, telephones, and publicity posters.


' symbiosis ' Commercial & residential centre Location

Arequipa | Peru


Design Studio 06 A Undergraduate - 3th Year (Individual)


Msc. Arch. Gustavo Sanchez R.


14 000 sqm

Commerce and housing perfectly exemplify an architectural symbiosis between two activities that are essential in Peruvian mixed-use buildings. The project is focused on concentrating the public activities in the first floors and the housing and leisure program over a green roof considered as the buildingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fifth façade. In addition, the design course was orientated to develop detailed drawings with a high technical presentation level.
