SZHK BIENNALE Installation In 2013, Eduard Bru, my tutor for doctoral thesis was invited to participate in the Shenzhen biennale. The theme of the Biennale was urban borders, so he decided to present a project of highway tolls he designed some years ago at different points of the Catalan highways. The Spanish highways tolls are characterized by this kind of cloud, or zeppelin, announcing their presence, which also invites the traveler to slow down. In the case of the intervention of BLS, the aim was to adapt these elements adapting them for every place, modifying the geometry and colors, but always using the same materials. Technological ones. I went into the project, as local architect, in July 2013. Designing the stand and taking up the construction. Just as happened with the original project, our intervention, for the Biennale consisted of adapting the concept to the place, creating a reproduction of these tolls, urban scale and poor, local and temporary materials (Bamboo and rice paper). We lower the cloud to men height, so it could serve as place of passage and exhibition space.

CHINESE ACADEMY OF SCIENCE Education / Culture The site for this new exhibition center and laboratories was the former 1962 Soviet-designed office cluster sitting amongst a heavily wooded compound. The design sought to minimize the carbon footprint of new construction by retaining as much of the existing fabric, with selective demolition and reconstruction. The newly configured complex possesses a series of intimate courtyards created by weaving new architecture through fortyfive mature trees and existing building structures. New laboratories, offices and exhibition spaces are organized around courtyards and terraces, each having views and access to the natural environment. The dialogue between the new and the old was not just an aesthetic exercise, but also one that is concerned with an enhancement of daylighting, natural ventilation, and the embodiment of new and existing landscape of mature camphor and pine trees. A double skin and a new fenestration system were developed in order to rationalize and produce new envelopes suitable for the new programs and the environment.

CITY OF YOUTH
Mixed-Use City of Youth proposes an alternative system to the repetitive urban structures that gives shape to most of the contemporary Central Business Districts. Our proposal brings together some characteristic elements of Chinese traditional architecture and the large European experience in public space design, in a contemporary layout. An hexagonal urban pattern is used to create a complex system of constructed and open space that organizes all the different functional programs and circulations, reproducing the image of a city fragment inside the plot. The project consists on a sponge-like porous network of mixed functions that promotes human interaction and communication. City of Youth is not just a juxtaposition of buildings, but a complex structure filled with urban life. From the central opened plaza, people go deep into the building through a net of pedestrian streets that configures the retail area, a maze of shops, facilities, flexible offices, courtyards, skylights and bridges that rises from the street until the public boulevard-terrace on the fourth floor, creating a three dimensional urban structure for the users. The interaction of programs on those first four levels, together with the open plaza, gives the project a special sense of community and public identity. Company: ADA BCN Location: Nanchang, PRC Client: Zhejiang Winning Real Estate Co., LTD.

QIANTAN APARTMENTS Residential Customer requirements for this plot is designing a residential for expats within the new media city in Pudong, and near the new mall for expats and the new international school. Regulations for this project are the same than for service apartment so it is not necessary to follow the demands of orientation. ‘Triangle Plaza’ responds to the intrin¬sic urban nature of the site, positioning the residential blocks around the perimeter of the site, lining the streets, to create a form in keeping with the downtown location. This arrangement of blocks maximises the central open space, creating a secluded and peace¬ful oasis allowing the residents to escape the stresses of city life. Each of the buildings maximises the available views across open green spaces, both internally and externally across the adjoining public park. Adopting a modular design approach, the uniform block forms create a flexible volume allowing for many combinations and ar¬rangement of unit types within. Render
The aim in the proposal is to capture the essence of European living and integrate this seamlessly with a life in Shanghai. Company: Chapman and Taylor Location: Shanghai, Pudong.

BAOEE HEADQUARTERS Mixed-Use BOEE Multifunctional Block will be one more of the new towers in project for the New Century City Area, south-east bank of Qian Tang River, in front of Hangzhou new Central Business District. The two banks of the river aim to become the new center of Hangzhou city, where recent high rise buildings and new facilities projects are trying to inject new life. Our proposal consists on the rising of an alternative icon to be unique amongst the different expressions of verticality of the new district. BOEE Multifunctional Block will be a new focal point on the area together with the two highest landmarks set up with that purpose on the Century City Urban Plan. The stacked boxes of the new BOEE Multifunctional Block are an expression of the programmatic complexity for the new mixed use development: offices, shops, luxury apartments, facilities and BOEE new headquarters. Each program parcel is contained in a different box and stacked in a position determined by its particular views, orientation and representativeness requirements: the apartments are placed in the higher levels, taking advantage of the views and orientation, while retail and offices are placed in the lower levels. BOEE Headquarters are stacked over the public offices, offering the representativeness needed by the developer company. Render

The project was born from the desire to create a central point in the plot of Cenate Sopra, in order to consolidate its operations as the urban core. The new town hall and community services, are located in a predominantly residential plot with moderate slopes and opposite the Church, with the mountains behind, the key factors that generate its characteristic spatial, functional and symbolic form of our proposal. The provision is intended as a court in the northern part of the site, that solves the natural slope and generates a horizontal vacuum ideal for the needs of public space and bring the necessary program. The building, cut on the ground, overlaps, hiding its size, becoming an artificial prolongation of the natural terrain that favors the spatial connection between the two parts of the territory, creating an iconic element that highlights the condition of place.

Sport facility In 2007, the architects Domingo-ferre, were invited to participate in the final competition for remodeling the the FCB stadium, Camp Nou. International studies of architecture of the caliber of SANAA, Herzog and Meuron and Foster, who finally won, were the rivals to beat. By that time, I worked at the university as an assistant professor Eduard Bru and Mamen Domingo, and despite I was fan of Real Zaragoza and not Barcelona, she invited me to join her team. Our proposal consisted of lifting a third grandstand and build a new facade with a large cantiliver that covered much of the public space. Ernest Ferre, used to explain the concept as a monastery in spain, naturally protected by a rock, San juan de la pe単a. However, rhetorical images could be many, since the goal nets at the time of scoring the goal, until a huge Catalan beret. The facade was coated with ETFE and titanium. Of course comfort issues and sustainability were also considered. Company: Domingo Ferre Arquitectes Location: Barcelona, Spain Client: FCB / Ayuntamiento Barcelona Date: 2007 Status: Competition / Final round Web/Email: http://www.domingoferre.com email@example.com My Tasks The Spanish architectural studios, are small. In that competition, at the time of maximum tension, we were just ten architects and we had to do everything. From graphic design, through physical model ... Although my major task was the cad of the different plants and sections, working with Ernest Ferre, co-owner of Dominic Ferre.

Master plan Among the different proposed sites for Europan 12, we chose Venezia-Mestre, because it was the city where I studied for a year and I was interested in the proposed program. The railway, communicating, Venezia with the rest of Italy makes Mestre and Porto Marghera remain unlinked. Our proposal was through a cinematic storyline, with sequences of Italian cinema, which so often followed the use of the station as a place of farewell communicate both cities. Behind this a priori resource, the project provided the construction of two landscaped pedestrian walkways, a new railway station and the ordination of a residential area that was
connected to the adjacent park. The old warehouses of the railway company, to be passed, exhibition space and library, which support the University of Venezia, Ca Foscari and IUAV, for the many students who live in Mestre.

NANTONG GANGZHA Mixed-use Central to the design concept of the ‘Nantong Gangzha plot 2’ project is the focus on a close linkage between build form and landscaping. Instrumental to this approach is the contextualization of architecture to its surrounding. Landscape features and forms give hints as to the orientation and composition of building complexes in order to create a masterplan that is not only coherent in its functionality and practical aspects but socially and environmentally as well. Roads, green strips and waterway layouts are the only aspects that allow a starting point for design; on a site that has experienced a ‘tabula rasa’ transformation to make ground for a large scale new development. The ‘Nantong Gangzha plot 2’ site will experience high levels of pedestrian flow. Similar to obstacles in the water such as stones or embankments with water finding its path, architectural and landscape elements form man made barriers directing people through and around walls, staircases, windows allowing access or prohibiting access both physically and visually. These analogies have been taken into consideration in the planning and design of the development. A combination of landscape and architecture based on plazas, alleyways ‘canyons’, and pedestrian streets allowing a seamless flow between the buildings which all house commercial functions at the lower levels. Company: Spark Architects Location: Nantong, China Client: Vanke Date: 2011 Status: DD / Awaiting construction Web/Email: http://www.sparkarchitects.com/ firstname.lastname@example.org My Tasks As part of a team of architects, working from concept through delivery to LDI.

POLY-LLEUGERS Sport facility It is an indoor sports court for installation in public schools throughout Catalonia. The design sought to create an adaptable to any situation and, versatile and high quality structural and building system. It could be integrated as a complement to the existing sports facilities, looking for a fast and dry assembly. Beside the court, the â€œpolilleugerâ€? has bleachers and two sports equipment stores. In addition, public services are enabled for the local people or the public, apart from improving the school environment. The structural system is resistant to wind stresses due to forward slashes, but also favors the use and control of natural lighting and natural ventilation of the space. We focus on sustainable materials, which in turn reply to the demands of adaptability to different areas, such as polycarbonates and metal plates on the front, and LED lighting. After the intervention, it has been increased fourfold the use of the sports space. In addition to increasing the quality for the educational community has become a neighborhood sports equipment in a space of important social integration. It can be used all year round, even when the school is closed.

BLAS INFANTE SQUARE
Public space The spatial proposal, organizes and symbolizes, with maximum intensity the new centrality that Blas Infante Square represents, in a contemporary way. The project is based on the duality of the two mixed scales: the neighborhood as an immediate environment, and other larger, the city and its historic center. For use and immediate environment was created a parking area, a place of rest, leisure, neighborhood relationship, with shade and benches, playgrounds, grass and a floral vegetation along the route of the pergola as protection for the summer . One goal of the project was the integration of service mechanisms, of the new parking, built under the square. Thus, elevators, stairs exits, ventilation ... plastically up, playing with the elements of the towers and the pergola, which is planned to integrate the lighting. This is the same lighting that creates different atmospheres, dynamic spaces, spaces of communication, with more light, some with shades of soft lighting and quiet rest. Public space has to pamper users. The proposed plan is defined as a narrow width to the geometry of the existing roof surface, while the other direction extends up to the wall of separation of Segre river on one side, and above the limit of the cover to Valencia street side, and on the other hand, in the form of cantilever slab melts existing bevels on the top level. Based on the existing parking lot, an artificial topography, formalized by the intersection of two pyramids, which merges with the Segre river walk and connects to the sidewalks of the surrounding streets with inclined planes, ramps or stairs, giving continuity to the urban routes.
