Botanic Garden's Center research center | Cupey, Puerto Rico design partner: Madelyn Moretta

01

The Research Center is directed to the study of the fauna and flora of Puerto Rico, with emphasis on the variety that lives within the same botanic garden. This workspace is used mostly by local and international botanical scientists. Due to recent discoveries and advances in botanic technology, the cientists needed a full-scale space where they could work in a pleasurable environment surrounded by nature, so they can fulďŹ ll their desire of discovering new species and protecting those at risk.

Research Center | Cupey, Puerto Rico


The Botanical Garden of Cupey is the green lung of the metropolitan area in Puerto Rico. Considering this important fact, we decided that our building should play with the site and its surroundings. First, we used the containing wall of the lake as a platform for the library/ administration’s building. This gives a sense of continuity from what was already there, to the new construction. Second, the alignment of the museum/auditorum’s volume corredponds to the terrain, and also helps to lead any visitors to the main entrance. And third, the laboratory’s volume lays on top of the other two buildings, framing the lake wich is the main view. Since we are on a tropical environment, natural ventilation and ilumination are really important. Therefore we used brisoleils to cover the building, protecting the inside from the heat and simultaneously providing cross ventilation. The design of the skin was also tought so it could allow privacy to the cientists, since it is mainly a work place. Thus, we end up with an organic design that simulates vegetation.


Band SkyLight

textile manufacture | Santurce, Puerto Rico

02

Band SkyLight, is a multipurpose complex of buildings: a textile manufacture, sales and exhibition area, and apartments. Conceptually, the design was inspired by how the textiles are constructed. It all begins with a single thread interleaving and multiplying until the piece is complete . That is why each building despite of having different shapes, are covered by a band in representation of those threads. Each band moves playfully around the buildings to allow light entries. The product of the manufacture can be acquired in the sales area, promoting local trade. In the same way, the exhibition area is open to all local designers who want or are already practicing the art of fashion design.

Dandelion Effect housing | Utuado, Puerto Rico Location: Dos Bocas Lake, Utuado Tipology: house Capacity: 1-2 per apartment Materials: steel, glass, wood Area: 500 sqft

03

A vacation house by the Dos Bocas Lake was made for a traveler that practices a nomadic lifestyle. This lifestyle was the starting point for the concept of this project. The dandelion is a very fragile flower and always seems like it will fly at any moment to join the wind. Plasticity is highlited in this project so the house could reflect movement and give the optical illusion of being simultaneously, on ground and on air.Therefore, the dandelion effect.

Second Floor Plan

The Benedetti house is located in the tourist area of Old San Juan, as second home for the famous Scottish classical violinist, Nicola Benedetti. The artist wanted an open concept house that could accomodate living and work area. The main floor gathers the public areas of the house on the front, giving a private space on the back for the recording studio. On the othe hand, the second floor is completely private providing two rooms and a bathroom. Conceptually, the house projects the curves of a violin on the inside and the sinuous melody on the roof, creating an harmoneous walk from one end of the house to the other.

Interlace

multipurpose building | Santurce, Puerto Rico design partners: Mariela Ortiz & Gerardo Diaz

Interlace is a multifamily housing complex which in turn provides commercial and service areas such as: a restaurant, child care, a grocery store, and an exclusive for resindents, recreation area and swimming pool. The project captures the entire site using L-shaped buildings that dresses the streets with facades on each side, and at the same time opens trough squares that connect all three buildings. As part of the uniďŹ cation idea, the pool and recreation area are shared by the entire complex. This junction only happens on the top two levels.

Green Water

Chicago River Monitoring Station | Chicago, IL

06

The Chicago River is an important ecological, historical and cultural icon. It is nationally significant as a key connection between the Great Lakes and the Mississippi River. The River’s rich local history, and new traditions like dying its waters green for St. Patrick's Day, are what makes the river such a popular spot, bringing thousands of individuals each year who swim, kayak and fish there – not to mention the significant use by the shipping and tourism industries. But what most people don’t know is that over 70% of the water in the Chicago River is wastewater effluent. Chicago was one of the few major cities in the United States that did not disinfect its wastewater before dumping it into local waterways, making them unsuitable for recreational activities like swimming or kayaking. Acknowledging the importance of the Chicago River, and understanding how it intertwines with urban planning, biodiversity, architecture, recreation, transportation, and commerce, the ‘Green Water’ project aims to transcend monitoring the pollution levels, create a solution through filtering stations, and display the latest research for the public. Providing both, research and educational spaces in order to create awareness about the Chicago River’s health, the Green Water project performs as a water filter for the river it self. Leaving behind the idea of a simple monitoring station, and taking one step further; action. The Healing of the Chicago River is already in development, but many people are still unaware of what is been done, and what is the future of the river. In order to become an essential part of this movement, the ‘Green Water’ project is located at the river walk. Providing public educational spaces and a private research lab on the river. This way, both scientists and the public, are gathering the latest information while cohabiting with the river.

The dynamic composition allows for each volume to display information towards the most active areas near the site, using diverse technology methods to promote filtering and reusing water such as: water collectors, water curtains, and its own water filtering wall.

The Green Water project calls for help and awareness. Looking forward to the future, one measure of success will be to filter and improve the Chicago River’s health by 10% in 5 years. It is our responsibility to restore such an important ecological, historical and cultural icon.

The Underwater Room is a space designed for educating and provide awareness about the Chicago River to the public. Here, people will experience a different sight of the river, being able to see both underwater and surface activities. Once inside of it, people will have the oportunity to interact with the wild life of the river through an interactive translucent floor that activates when detects movement, pointing out some basic info about the species. In addition, visitors will also partcipate in an educational lecture about the latest improvements on the river, by one of the scientists.

The laboratory is intended for research and development of immediate and future solutions for the river’s health. The scientists who work here will also provide lectures to the public on the underwater room, and will receive water samples taken from the boat tours. The lab has also a privileged view of the water filtering wall, which is an operating filtering wall that suctions the river water, filters it, and brigs it back to the river. Promoting to have a hands-on attitude.


Waterlight Graffiti is a project that aims to create a material made of thousands of LEDs which lights up when touched by water. . The wetter it is, the brighter it gets. Based on a idea as simple as bright, Waterlight Graffiti’s purpose is to be a new kind of reactive material to draw or write ephemeral messages made of light. To use water, which has neither shape nor colour, to draw light, is a magical experience, regardless of the public age or its artistic sensibility. This opportunity finally becomes a new kind of interaction with urban architecture. By mixing a natural element and technology, Waterlight Graffiti’s users can even play with the weather or the evaporation speed for example. Waterlight Graffiti is an installation created by Antonin Fourneau produced in collaboration with Art2m.

The cafeteria space is provided for the public to enjoy and engage activities near the river. This is an informal gathering area where people can relax and meet with friends and/or researchers, and at the same time donate for the research when consuming at the cafeteria.

Workfuel Stations Our area of focus is envisioning the transformation of the big corporate office building in the future.


Years ago started some rumors about the shortage of oil in the world; consequently humanity had on their hands a big problem called, dependence on petroleum. In this manner, the motor vehicle had to be rethought so we can reducethe high demand on oil that exists today. Currently we are experimenting with other energy sources, such as solar and electric vehicles that might end up beign permanent solutions and bring with them, an eco friendly

Supporting these data and assuming it as our closest reality, one thought came to our minds: Under this circumstances, what about the existing thousands of gas stations? Would they fall into disuse by increasing the number of abandonded buildiings in Puerto Rico and the world? These are questions that moved us to rethink gas stations, and propose them as workplaces for the future.

The work spot at the pump is addressed to all those independent entrepreneurs, students and/or working groups that have the need to meet somewhere to resolve their topics without enclosing themselves on an office. In most urbanized areas, people are less that 2 miles from a gas station. Therefore we have chosen the gas station as a good work spot, their accessibility to the customer allows to motivate the people to reduce their use of cars as main transportation and gives them the possibility of walking or use a bicycle to get to work.
