PROJECT BY: Ivan Castro MENTOR: Edilberto Ocasio PROJECT DATE: February 2012 PURPOSE: Academic & Personal DESCRIPTION: The idea of this design is to be able to build 4 chairs from a single 4”x 8” wood panel with minimal extra components. It was born from a freshman engineering design class assignment and later adopted as a personal project.

FINCA LA LUCĂ?A ECO-LODGES

PROJECT TEAM: Ivan Castro (CE) Orlyn Enriquez (CE) Elvis Martinez (CE) Federico Zuluaga (Arch.) MENTOR: Reinaldo Torres PROJECT DATE: December 2015 LOCATION: Yabucoa, Puerto Rico PURPOSE: Academic (Polytechnic University of Puerto Rico) COLLABORATION: Site planning. Structural analysis, models & plans for lodges and buildings. Foundation design.

EXISITING SITE


Finca La Lucia was developed for the Puerto Rico Tourism Company, in an effort to create an eco-friendly hotel alternative on the southeast coast of the island. This collaboration between engineering and architecture students consisted of a Site Analysis and Rehabilitation Proposal of an abandoned municipal pool infrastructure as well as the design of a self-sustaining Eco-Lodge Complex, developed in the surrounding premises. The complex offers 20 lodges, and administration building and a coconut manufacturing and restaurant building.

ECO-LODGES: The lodges were designed with the surrounding palm trees in mind. Using coconut fiber mesh and wood, a light and breezy inside was created. Additionally, due to high flood base levels and hurricane proneness, a solid steel base reaching heights of 12 feet was carefully developed using 3D modeling and structure analysis.

FOUNDATION DESIGN: Due to the projects coastal location, several design factors had to be taken into consideration. Mainly, the soil was sandy, with low resistance and a high risk of liquefaction. For this reason, special drilled shafts connected by tie-bars were designed for each lodge. This was intended to act as a moment-resisting frame in case of liquefaction.

FRONT ELEVATION PLAN

One of the most noticeable aspects of the site is the ubiquitousness of palm trees. This presented the alternative of incorporating a micro-enterprise of artisanal coconut fiber mesh production, a highly marketable item in tropical islands and a material `throughout the project. Adjoined, a lounge area designed for guests and visitors to enjoy while taking a tour of the meticulous production process.
