Bank of Time/// Multi-change point Madrid. Spain Final Thesis Project
A Bank of Time has not yet an accurate definition. It is a new concept merged from the necessities of people to adapt the current social situation. We could consider that a Bank of Time is composed by all the people which have spare time available and an specific hability. Those people provide a service while they are able to benefit from the services provided by other Bank users. So we could talk about time like actual currency.
Author M.Elena Zamora Castejon
According to all the previously mentioned it is necessary to take into account that a Bank of Time is not a physicall place; it s more like a multi- change process. Not a physical space is needed for these processes take place. On the other hand several of the activities requested need specific spaces properly conditioned.

The setting of the building in the neighbourhood follows a series of defined rules that could be sumarized in: Encouraging conexion among green spaces and other facilities generating an axis between the two main points of affluence of users: Alonso MartĂnez y Tribunal. Filling the urban network promoting pedestrian traffic. Diagonal connection among the two main public transportation system is favoured by the acces plan configuration. The rotation of the proposed building generates a continuation of Alonso MartĂnez Boulevard. Moreover the acces plan opens towards the most enclosed urban network; the building adapts to the city deppending on the environment. It is when the city compresses the space physically and visually that it opens to pedestrians.
The building emerges from the necessity of space for all the interchanges to take place. These interchanges are processes which are governed by internal mechanical laws.The programme bases on the application of mechanical criteria grouping the activities in three groups. 1.Kinematics
Studies the MOTION of objects without reference to its causes.
Concerned with the study of forces and torques wich are the ORIGIN of motion.
Analizes the causes that lean to EQUILIBRIUM.
Spaces are articulated by the circulation systems generating a continuum of activities from the urban space on street level to the upper deck closing the cycle.
Each programme group is assigned 3 groups: A. Dicect multiple inter-change B. Single direct inter-change C. Services Pre-designed interchange spaces Semi-exterior spaces Services
Plan Level 0 + 0,0 m/ + 0,80m
The Faรงade consists of a double skin faรงade made of expanded galvanized steel mesh panels which filters the exterior and guarantees sun and wind protection. Some of these panels are folding panels so that they can let more sun and vision in the building if necessary. Boxes
The boxes are the enclosed and conditioned spaces, where permanent activities take place. Their size and location depends on the kind of activity, if it is a collective or an individual activity. They all organize and connect physically and visually around a central courtyard. Gym
The gimnasium is the biggest volume of the building, and it is designed to fit the most dynamic processes. Due to its size it could be a multi-use space for many activities, such as sports events, performances, teather events, dance rehearsals, among others. Secondaries
The secondary spaces ares those to house the most private change processes; as examples of these processes we can find personal care, personal advicing or particular classes. They all concentrate in the noth-west side of the building. Decks
The decks are conceived as an extension of the urban space but belonging to the building at the same time; the duality interior-exterior which takes place in the whole building continues in these open-air spaces, which could be used as an extending of the box spaces. Comunications
The communications are provided by two rings, one situated in the interior perimeter and the other in the exterior one. In the exterior we find a continous stairs which offers an architectural promenade of the whole space.In the interior, we find the two main vertical communication cores.
Plan level 1 + 6,8 m
Plan level 2 + 11,80 m/ + 16,80m N4
The â€œboxâ€? spaces are those perfectly delimited and defined in their use.The enclosure provides them of an isolated atmosphere to concrete activities. There are two sub-groups: ones focused on collective actvities and others for direct changes.
Main Elevation/ South The negative spaces are the ones merged by the substraction of the boxes to the whole volume. They create a system of conections between bos spaces and communication spaces; they are able to adapt to be transformed as the users prefer in any case.
The connection systems are the spaces that join all the previous spaces in both directions. They are placed in the perimeters , one in the exterior perimeter and the other in the internal atrium.

Passive cooling/heating Exterior faĂ§ade is composed by a double polycarbonate skin; the exterior one is UVA protected. In between these two layers there is an adjustable louvers system. The users are able to choose the best orientation of the slats avoiding direct solar radiation in summer, while they can get natural indirect illumination. That improves heating gains in winter.
The air-conditioning and renewal is made by usind a double system consistent of Air Processing Units combined with a radiant floor, to improve the thermal performance of the building. The concept: a main conditioning system and a secondary support system in each deppending on the different seasons:
Cold water supply Hot water supply Main cold water pipe
Main hot water pipe Cold water pipe
Hot water pipe
-Main heating system It provides low emision temperatures, loosing a 15% less energy and it generates low air movement due to convection. That is perfect to maintain a constant temperature specially in great height spaces.
Draining Siphon cans Waste water pipes Slopes Gutters
-Support cooling system Water flows at a temperature of 25ÂŞC , the cooling spend is low, it works well when maintaining the cool
Rainwater pipes Roof division Drain/sumo Solar collector

Technical rooms Garage floor houses the technical rooms, they are all completely accessible from the public space, there is no need to get into the building. There are two separate boiler rooms thet inlude the pressure groups and fire protection water deposits. There is an electric transformation center and the electricity meter room.
The rest of installations are located in the garage floor. The lighting system is based in a standardized and integrated in the structure system, consistent on fluorescent 80w luminaires, suspended of adjustable rails to easily adapt to the building necessities.
Electicity / lighting system +6,8m
Ventilation in the garage is natural ventilation, using the Venturi effect: air flows into the building through slats in the retaining wall and gets out through the central coutyard because of the difference of air pressure
Evacuation route is marked by 35 w luminaires over the floor surface. Emergency lighting in the enclosed spaces are luminaires embedded in the floor.

Perspectives Charter Academy /// Synergy Math & Science School 37th st. Chicago, IL, USA. Synergy concept means literally â€œworking togetherâ€?. It refers to the process in which the influence or work of two or more agents acting together is better than the result of the parts acting separately. Applied to the educative process this concept refers to the improvement on the quality of the learning process when joining diferent subjects in place and time instead of splitting them.
Academic Project P8/Studio9
The aim of the design is to improve the potential of the synergy process by the creation of an open concept system that lets the knowledge flow. There are no classic classrooms, there are multi-functional spaces instead. They organize around different patios which create synergy conection between them and the outdoor spaces, and turn into meeting points to the students of all ages.
Professor Susan Conger Austen IIT University / Studio 9
Author M.Elena Zamora Castejon
The main objective is to connect architecture and landscape in all levels of design. This aim is achieved by the creation of interior courtyards and inside-outside spaces in the general volume of the building. A curtain wall, which geometry reflects the plan organization, provides the building the natural light necessary t improve the educative experience and enfasizes the open-space sensation.
Circulation organizes in two levels: a linear main path that spreads to the secondary patios. Synergy processes take around the mentioned patios. class is connected to one of in order that students can their knowledge with othe
place Each them share ones.
Bloomingdale Trail /// Park and Community Center N.California Ave. Chicago, IL, USA. Academic Project P9/Studio10
The project is located by Humbold Park, a mainly residential neighbourhood where we can notice a clear demand on facilities related to leisure and open air activities. The abandonned trail, which currently splits the area in two unconnected areas, becomes the main central axis and starting point of the project.
Author M.Elena Zamora Castejon
Professor Carol Ross Barney IIT University / Studio10
Focusing on the neighbours necessities raises the idea of a community center which joins all the members of the community. The design is based on the creation of a series of connection three dimensional structures. Taking into account the scale and geometry of the area the creation of a single volume is avoided. The building is not thought to be a landmark, it is thought to be a joining element.
Greenhouse///Gardens-water///Arts and crafts room///Technollogy room-lab///Resource-media lab-room///Library///Gim/cafeteria ///Reception /hall
The tota composition is the result of the growing of a series of spaces which drill the elevated trail in vertical and horizontal. These volumes grow and slide in different ways to create different rhythms which provide a single concept to the whole development. Elements like water, vegetation and light flow over and through those volumes to make them a single one. The trail is re-used as an elevated park. The building generates resting spaces which open to the main path, built to follow the rhythm of the former rails.
The whle group of volumes has a glass and corten steel faรงade, two very different materials which complement one to another in their function. The first one, glass, connects visually the two levels, providing natural light to the spaces under the trail. The second one, corten steel, is placed in a series of panels perforated in different percentages which filter the light deppending on the use of the space. At the same time, as it is a rusty material, it melts perfectly with the former abandonned trail.
DESPLEG-ARTE /// Trasformable pavillion Multiple spaces. Spain. The principal aim of the project is to generate a mobile, changing, transformable space able to work well in different environments and locations, to develop sereral different activities.
Architecture Competition/// Transitarte-movilizarte 2013
Our designfocuses in defining a standard piece or structural module as a start point, and combining it with other two modules to generate the final shape. The piece is provided with a folding system which generate a sub-structure to mulpiply its volume three times. The three pieces aligned have exactly the meassure to be delivered by standard vehicles. Once in place, they combine as desired by the users: Aligned, triangled or L-shaped.
Author M.Elena Zamora Castejon Amaya Oses Zarate
Once they are placed in the final position they can be extended by the folding system, multiplying the possibilities deppending on the use of the space. Deppending on the necessities, the pavillion would be used for different activities: educative activities, workshops, galleries, and so on. And it would be perfectly adapted to both urban and rural spaces.
BenavidesHousing and Auditorium /// Benavides Chapel Ruins San Francisco Church. Baeza, Jaen. Spain The aim of the project is the refurbishment of San Francisco Church in Baeza, a remarkable city known for its Architectural Heritage, and the reorganization of the surrounding area. When the groin vault collapsed, threre only remained the side wall and the lower chapels which supported the High Altar. The design defines a cubic brick skin which embraces the ruins and provides a roof solution to the chapel. It consists on a flat roof, as simple as possible to emphasize the importance of the masterpiece kept in the interior. The interior space is re- used as an auditorium.
Academic Project P6/ Author M.Elena Zamora Castejon Professor Jose Angel Vaquero Studio/// Jose Ignacio Linazasoro
To complete the urban space a new housing system is designed. The volume is based on the adiction of singe modules around patios which provide light and natural ventilation. This organization works well in Baeza where the climate is mainly hot and dry.

Visitor Pavillion/// Huertas del Picotajo Aranjuez. España Academic Project P4/
The “huertas del picotajo” landscape, developed by Juan Bautista de Toledo and Juan de Herrera, consists in a territory organization based on geometry laws. There is a radiation of ways from different focus following the East- West orientation based on the hexagon geometry.
Author M.Elena Zamora Castejón
The territory is divided by radius each 30 degrees starting in different landmarks. These radius are actually paths flanked by trees. The spaces generated were crop areas known as tranzones.
Professor Pau Soler Studio/// Juan Navarro Baldeweg
All those geometrical laws are taken into account when developing the pavillion desig. The geometry of the volume is based on the application of the 30 degrees divission and the natural growing laws. The is the reason why the pavillion resembles the surrounding landscape. The landscape is activated due to the use of materials as the aluminum or glass, which are not found in the surroundings and make the building a landmark easy when visitors arrive to the area.
The ain of the geometry is to create different hints by the use of visual filters. The location is chosen due to different reasons. One of then is that it offers different landscapes: the river, the trees, the dry crops or the irrigated lands. The conection river-pavillion is very important, as the river is the leitmotif of the whole landscape, and the pavillion is paced next to it to generate a possible conection to the city The the ing
pavillion frames landscape creatfocus points on it.
Housing and Cultural Center/// Former mining area Puertollano. Espa単a The area of Puertollano has been linked to mining exploitation during a long time in XX century. Nevertheless, by the end of the seventies this industry ceased so the exploitation and transportation areas remained abandonned since then till our days. To reactivate these areas that, despite of being abandonned are strikingly beautiful, a new urban depelopment is propossed. It would consist in a series of housing dwellings and cultural faccilities. Due to the project size a single dwelling and a cultural center is assigned to each student .
Academic Project P7/ Author M.Elena Zamora Castejon Professor Pau Soler Studio/// Juan Navarro Baldeweg
The housing is designed as a linear block where vertical communication cores are placed each two apartments.This way we ensure the cross ventilation and a better natural illumination. Every unit is provided with a terrace and a greenhouse facing noth which captures energy and generates a thermal cushion.
There are two housing types: the two bedroom type and the three bedroom one. Each unit is provided with a living-dining room, toilet, bathroom, kitchen as well as terrace and greenhouse. The geometry is based on creating a flat faรงade facing north with air cushions to increase the energy gains and a broken faรงade facing south that generates shadows and reduces the solar gains in summer. Every unit is double orientated so cross ventilation is possible. Facing west and east there are placed vertical and horizontal louvres to avoid solar radiation in summer days, as well as indirect light is possible.
