Selected Works

The Eames house after 40 years of living

Ultraarchitecture is a concept developed by Javier Jiménez Iniesta in his Phd Work. This concept tries to define an architecture that goes beyond architecture and architects showing the important role played also by the owner This drawing called “House: after 40 years of living” is part of that work. It’s also a website and a photography collection found about the Eames House. It is a multylayer axonometric drawing that lets the reader to understand the evolution of the Eames house through years and how it changes with the history of its owners

Films & popular memories Creation of a common urban and domestic imaginary of wishes through the world of fiction. The idea of the “truly authentic sense of City� based on a collage of different sources. There is therefore an idea of New York that has more to do with Woody Allen's filmography or sitcoms rather than its real context. Cinema and Fiction as constructors of subjectivities.

Travel guides and literature They had been sustituted by blogs and online guides which are updated regularly

Wishes & E

Traveling is an experience heavily fueled by two families of emotions that determine the landscape of its setting: on the on other hand, as a result of these expectations, we find the whishes that everybody yearns for a new experience. The memor stereotyped wishes. Cinema, internet, television and literature are four vehicles of this shared knowledge, built through th and it is supplemented by additional information that could have with particular interests, and that is powerfully suppor

"We can remember it for you" Is a short story by American writer Philip K. Dick, first published in The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction in April 1966 and adapted to cinema in 1990 as "Total Recall" Is the story of a simple and ordinary man whose greatest desire is to visit Mars. Unable to afford it he visits a company which offers implanted memories.

Youtubers as experts Experts who share their knowledge in very specific themes: fashion, party, food, sports... Almost a real time documentary.

Apps: About subjetivities Technology changed the way to urdestand tourism. Like a local, Instagram or Tripadvisor are just some of the examples of existing apps who are used as trivel guides. Main difference with a simple City Guide its a real time feedback generated by the users with their evaluations and comments


ne hand we have the expectations with which one faces a trip, and that are linked to our personal history.On the ry about a place we've never visited, the desire to visit this place, is built on shared resources, and thus, somewhat he wish of certain agents to a particular place.

VODAFONE PLAY! restricted competition for Capitol Building There are two main elements: on the one hand this untouchability of the building and we have decided to take to the extreme. On the other hand, the context in which the project is implemented. The Gran Vía as an artery of the show, which in recent years has seen its inhabitants were making up and sophisticated in a bid to make it the Avenida live entertainment and celebrities. This has led to the proliferation of multimedia screens that energize and liquefy the public space; Callao screens and 40 theaters or coffee is only the beginning of a modernization of the medium that forces definitely adapt to changing times if you want to compete. Understand the decision logic is replacing posters for three LED screens high resolution that would become the largest of the Gran Vía. Intuition that this technology is able to build the atmosphere of which we speak is displayed. So we have on one hand the existing layer, the desire to nurture and rejuvenate the Capitol as it was; on the other layer of the future, this first overlaps almost touch and transforms updating. The project is the result of the overlap of the two layers without touching are able to coexist in a kind of frozen magic: achieved, variable, changing atmosphere, such as Gran Vía own.

def. Rubble is broken stone, of irregular size, shape and texture. This word is closely connected in derivation with “rubbish”, which was formerly also applied to what we now call “rubble”. Rubble naturally found in the soil is known also as ‘brash’ (compare cornbrash). Where present, it becomes more noticeable when the land is ploughed. def. Landscape comprises the visible features of an area of land, including the physical elements of landforms, water bodies such as rivers, lakes and the sea, living elements of land cover including indigenous vegetation, human elements including land uses, buildings and structures, and transitory elements such as lighting and weather conditions.

‘Close Encounters O (Steven Spielberg)

“I have been three years without watching Tokyo Bay from a boat (…) from here you can see the terrible aspect of this metropolis, which cannot be done when you are inside it: immeasurable number of containers that circulate automatically on conveyor belts, mountains of garbage that accumulate excessively, dirty sea and several merchant ships that sail through it. This makes you think rather in the backyard of a huge city than in the part of the city that looks at the sea.” ‘Escritos’ Toyo Ito

The significant increase in environmental awareness that man has acquired in recent years has changed the way we understand the relationship between subject and biotope. However, political processes and catalysts for clean development remain invisible; we can only understand its sustainable condition through certificates and labels applied to these objects.

RubbleScape aims to be an agitator of this controversy: the mountain becomes a snitch, an educational architecture that with its own construction, explains the ecological process that grows and becomes a new public space in the city. On one hand, Asian cities have become machines which collapse and rebuild themselves continuosly. In two years a district is able to completely renewed, erasing the past. There is no history. The uncommon construction capacity generates huge amounts of rubble and waste. Its management exceeds administration and it’s deposited in surrownding rural towns in an improvise way. Then, the degradation process of the rural environment is the only historic pattern concerning on new Asian city.

On the other hand, the complete lack of architecture on infrastructure buildings such as those dedicated to areas of recycling, water treatment, energy plants ... And here it appears our mountains, wich completely changes the ground plane. It is a grat infraestructurue itself, with its origin on the rubble material of demolished architecture: mountains that feed on rubble and make new public arenas, a new urban landscape with the ability to educate the citizens on waste proccesses and on environmental success.
