#1. DEGREE FINAL PROJECT
As final degree project, far away from designing a classical dwelling, decided to make an interesting imaginatively exercise, trying to conceive how housing will be alike in the next hundred years. Getting inspiration from those thinkers who had already been thinking about it in the last centuries, achieved to create a â€œdatabaseâ€? of ideas for the next century and analyzed why some had turned to real life or not. With all this knowledge background finally tried to imagine our own inhalations about how will be the housing and the communities in the next century.
TIMELINE / INFOGRAPHIC
The termâ€œpaleofutureâ€? try to collect all the artistic expressions,thoughts and inventions made from the end of the XIX century to the 2000th year. Some of them, which I considered relevant to the housing subject , were catalogued and the result is shown on the timeline of these pages. Divided in differents matters of study, as Home, Transportation, Energy, Commerce, Media..etc, all the thoughts and inventions from the past were placed in the proper year and subject.

GEOGRAPHIC MAP / INFOGRAPHIC
Trying to comprehend how and why the society started to think and worry about the future, I designed a geographical map in an infographic way tu put everything on place. Inside all the social issues, migrations, discoveries, achievements, etc were brought up for discussion and analysis.

ISOMETRIC / INFOGRAPHIC 3D
Deisgning the future housing community was a very big challenge. First trying to imagine how society will be in the next hundred years, and trying to put myslef in the place of a tech advanced society still not developed. Besides, the project was thought in different lines. Not only making the future housing form a â€œnormalâ€? nowadays family, but for others possible family agrupations as can be bachelors, polygamous, singles, students, elders, ...

MIND MAP / INFOGRAPHIC
On this graphic is shown how nowadays actions will repercute on the future society, within a techonlogical point of view. How the correct ( or not ) use of new advances can shape the future society, and therefore the way of living with them.

DATA VISUALIZATION / INFOGRAPHIC
With different statistical graphics, plots, information graphics, tables, or charts
tried to communicate
clearly and efficiently the results of the previous analysis made on the last centuryâ€™s thoughts.

#2. RETHINKING THE NEIGHBORHOOD:
The project was born as a dynamic action in order to regenerate the public spaces of an old Alicante class neighborhood. All the actions were previously considered with the own neighbors, trying to create a collaborative design with them. Was an union between architectture students and neighbors, trying to work as intermediary between them and the City Counsil , reporting the lack of public space inside the neighborhood. The way of procedure was subtle and suitable to the image of San Ant贸n as a classical part of the city, trying to maintain their own identity.
URBAN ACTIVATION PROCEDURES / 3D INFOGRAPHIC
Trying to maintain the neighborhood identity, I opted for an unique design element to work with. In this case the classical chair was chosen. San Antón neighborhood is placed marginally on the city, and this condition makes it to be considered an small village inside the city. Therefore
the living way of their
inhabitants reminds the old living way of Spanish villages. All neighbors know each other, and is not hard to see them on their home doors chatting. The lack of public space inside the neighborhood force them to create their very own. As recognition of this beautiful act, different devices were designed to “invade” the streets and make the City Council to open their eyes for their lack of public space conditions.

URBAN MAPPING / FIELD WORK & 3D
One of the first steps to follow was to elaborate a detailed plan of the neighborhood. On it, every â€œagentâ€? to consider was placed. Active neighbors, associations, empty plots, public spaces in bad conditions or commerces, and of course the relation between all of them. With all this information compiled the project could be richer and successful.

URBAN ACTIVATION PROCEDURES / INFOGRAPHIC
Other activation techniques were designed to “make” the neighborhood more visible for the rest of the city. Creating a new image, always maintaining their identity, can be a way of promote the good things that San Antón can offer. With these low cost devices placed in one of the most distinguished part of the neighborhood were supposed to attract city life from other near neighborhoods, giving San Antón a new brand image.
ACTIVATION DEVICES / MODELS & VIDEO
Using the classical chair the own neighbors use to “conquer” the public space outside their homes, different modifications were thought on them to create some bigger attraction, to point San Antón in the city. Cutting the chairs on different heights or angles, and attaching one to another with low cost materials, a huge “self-growing” structure was designed. The video on the right shows other different devices designed with 3D chairs models and applying some small modifications on them, with the last purpose of creating a new valuable public space.
SOCIAL ACTION / PUBLIC EVENT
One achievement of the project was this public open event. With different collaborations as the City Council, Cultural Associations and
retail shops for materials
donation, one weekend was established to start the action inside the neighborhood. Were the own neighbors who come to paint and modify the chairs which afterwards would be used as the public space devices. A poster was designed to invite them to participate in the event, which was a success, with more than 50 chairs painted, each one from a different neighbor, who wrote the name on it, making them even more thrilled and involved into the project.
SEE IMAGES OF THE EVENT 25
ADVERTISING / VIDEOS
During the project three different videos were made as advertising campaign on the social networks. The aim was to place the neighborhood inside the city and get people conscious about the conditions and opportunities
San Antón could offer, as the video
“Despierta” ( “Awake” in english language) shows.

#3. CONSTRUCTION PROJECT :
Placed in an old well known city as Amsterdam, a whole school project is designed, from the first sketches to the detailed plans for an imagined construction, always following the spanish Technical Building Code (CTE). Placed in the Jordaan neighborhood, two independent blocks give shape to a internal street that invites the pedestrian to come inside. Following this path, a wide open space can be used not only for the students, but for the neighboors indeed, giving the school a public-private nature, similar to the dutch yards than conform the city of Amsterdam.
DETAILED PLANS AND ELEVATIONS / 2D
Apart from the basic plans used in the scheme design, is decided to elaborate detailed plans, within internal partitions, remarking the differences on simples or doubles or even triples ( depending on the spaces uses) partitions , and adding dimensions on all the drawings. On the elevations some indications in order to follow the Technical Building Code are remarked.

TECHNICAL DETAILS AND SECTIONS / 2D
On the project everyhing must be perfectly defined. From the materials to the properly order to be placed, as can be seen on the technical details on these pages. Everything has it own number code and is explained on its own legend.

LIGHTING / 2D & ENERGETIC SOFTWARE
The lighting and installations are also full defined. Using energetic software to input all the equipment for the building, can calculate the energetic cost per year, and get the Energy Calculation Certificate neccesary to endorse the project.

STRUCTURE / 2D
These plans show the aproximately internal structure of the bulding, and the foundations neccesary. A big challenge to deal in a city like Amsterdam, where most of the building stands on pilings due to the water that flows through the city.

#4. SUSTAINABILITY PROJECT :
The city of Calpe is considered one of the most turistic destination on the Mediterranean shore chosen by european foreigners. All the sun and beach tourism have made to forget all the features the city possess. The old part of the town, nowadays invaded with tourism offers, yearn for better times. Calpe also has very important romanical remains which are shown in a traditional agriculture way of live, currently buried because of the huge residential areas and shoppin malls. This project tried to recover the essence of Calpe, based on a mediterranean lifestyle and productive agriculture.
TIMELINE / INFOGRAPHIC
<< Calpe, an overloaded shore with a forgotten inside >>. This sentece can sum up all the premises of the project. Trying to connect the historical center of the city with the own remains of the ancestors, as the agriculture lifestyle, an empty area was found perfect for the goal. With different heighs of productive fields , most with vine plant, a possible path is designed , remarking the best viewpoints, as well as the romanical remains and ruins on it. All the path is also designed for bikers use and the chance of creating community gardening for the neighbors is also considered due to high number of empty plots.
SEE FULL PANELS 37
On a second phase of the project, some market stations are created between the community gardens. Besides the old bike path, a new transportation way is designed. Using old railways a brand new structure with two bikes attached is made up. The rails move along the gardens and the market stations, were the ecological products can be bought and sell on the bike device, which can fold and unfold, creating an small market stand. In that way a total sustainable solution is achieved, connecting the city with their remains identity and hundred per cent green.

#5. URBANISM PROJECT :
THE NEW PALMERAL
Placed in the city of Elche we faced the challenge to propose the future expansion of the city. The current urbanism growment is make by urban rings, despite the lack of empty floor and the bad planning. Because of that, we proposed to move the expansion district to the west, preserving the palms gardens inside the city growment. New
â€œtongues-shapedâ€? which braid together the old and the new part of the town.
EXPANSION DISTRICT / URBANISM
star-growment, were green zones â€œinvadeâ€? the city and braid all together. The choosen area to plan is placed between the industrial area and the outside field residential area. A watercourse is a remarkable issue to consider in order to act properly.
SEE FULL PANELS SEE BROCHURE
Other remarkable aspect in the project is shown on this video. A national roadway get through the city, breaking it in two, and in some parts creating a physical barrier that fragment the residential areas.
Both, single and multi-family-house unit are designed keeping in mind the housing density of the city, to balance all the urban proposal. An organic way is designed for the green areas, which fill the spaces between the housing units creating paths and open public spaces. Therefore these new green areas are linked to the tradicional field gardens beyond the expansion district.

#6. CERAMIC TILE CONTEST :
The spanish ceramics company ASCER holds a competition for architecture students every year. The
regulations are simple, we must design two different ceramic pieces, one made by compression an another by extrusion. The pieces must be original and innovative. Focusing on the dividing walls that are plentiful in our hometown, decided to work on those spaces and try to play down their visual importance which breaks the armony of the city. By adding other materials inside the pieces , like ceramic foam, allows some vegetation to grow up on the different surfaces.
PRODUCT DESIGN / 2D & 3D
Both pieces follow the classical mediterranean cercamic patterns. A holding system by battens allows the user to define the final aspect of the faรงade in order to cover the dividing wall. The pieces works as a sandwich panel, two ceramic surfaces with a heart of ceramic foam , previously sprayed with vegetal spores let some vegetation like moss to grow up and fill in the patterns, getting a green faรงade.

#7. 2D & 3D MODELLING :
Given the name of a well known architecture example, plans, and pictures , the student must model in 3D in order to extract as much architectural drawing as possible. Detailed floorplans, elevations
perspective sections... On the other hand, must have the enough skills to produce render infographics according to sun exposure, night illumination, materials... to set up a realistic photomontage.
ARCHITECTURAL DRAWING / 2D & 3D
The choosen house was Dom Zlomu House by Paulíny Hovorka Architekti and is located in Kynceľová, Slovakia.

#8. APPLICATION DESIGN :
DREAM TEAM UA
The University of Alicante holded an app design competition to include the University open database with some aspects of the university lifestyle.
DreamTeamUa combine the sport installations inside the campus with the students personal information. This way a kind of social sports network is born. Each student with his own profile can set up games with other players, and whoever wants to play after seeing the meeting information can join the match instantly. Therefore works as a social network, with profiles, friends, goals, etc.
APP DESIGN / GRAPHIC DESIGN
On the university campus floorplan all the sport events are shown. You can browse depending on the sports youâ€™d like to practice. The event display information as the time, specific place or court, price of booking, level of the players, the players needed... so you can join them.
