Civic projects

Hirshhorn Museum expansion The Mall, Washington D.C. , USA. The proposed expansion must reorganize the whole promenade and enlarge the total useful area of the original museum with 30.000sqft = 20.000sqft (modern exhibition) + 10.000sqft (contemporary exhibition)

The design process seeks for the best strategy to fit the new program in such a tight site, while working on a new promenade for the exhibition. As a result of this diagram+model process, a new object falls on the top of the concrete doughnut provoking a new circulation and exhibition strategy.

New circulation strategy: double story-high (1/8th doughnut) spaces are opened in the building so as to create a new spiral movement that culminates in the new contemporary exhibition space contained in the alien object. These new transition spaces called “art lobbies� will exhibit large art pieces, proposing a secondary exhibition that coexists with the general promenade, and will be the excuse to open windows in the existing facades.

Civic buildings

Redrawing, modeling and research. Georges Pompidou Center in Beaubourg, Paris. (Paulo Archias Mendes da Rocha) In collaboration with Pau Bajet Mena. The objective is to study the particular case of this unbuilt building in order to understand the design process of the architect and the aim of his decisions regarding structure, function and materiality The model is fully built with wood as an abstraction of bare concrete. Both the building and its sorroundings are built in the same material to reinforce the material monotony seeked by the architect. The blocks are left empty due to the no-place connection of the project.

Redrawing, modeling and research. Centro Georges Pompidou in Beuabourg, Paris. (Paulo Archias Mendes da Rocha) In collavoration with Pau Bajet Mena. The objective is to study the particular case of this unbuilt building in order to understand the design process of the architect and the aim of his decisions regarding structure, function and materiality .

Mendes da Rocha’ building is conceived as a unique object that breaks the continuity of Parisian buildings. Its ‘en brut’ concrete materiality reinforces the idea of an independent object placed in the city as if ready to take off. The building is explained through the different plants where the spatial complexity of the main central space is explained. The sections reveal the intermediate platforms (exhibition areas) and connecting ramps.

Civic projects

Mixed use building Campus in La Diagonal, Barcelona, Spain. The project proposes a varied program: campus, parking, auditorium, library, cafeteria, offices and housing. 160x140 m block in the university area of Diagonal Street. As a prerequisite, the building must be block type (thin, tall prism geometry).

The tetris-block: To meet the needs of the varied program, a composite solution is proposed to wrap the different Tetris-functional pieces into the same block type building. A first study organized the program according to the level of privacy and space needs. This organization complies with: library, auditorium, offices, housing and cafeteria. _library: a horizontal element accessible to the public at lower level _auditorium: a sunken prism with double bay and double-height _offices: a tower within a block _housing: horizontal element on top (most private) The building is north-south oriented, so as to favor the east-west crossed ventilation. Its non-central position in the plot, divides the ground surface into two areas: access area related to the building and a large recreation area for the campus.

As a prerequisite, the building must be block type (thin, tall prism geometry).

3 plazas - 3 uses - 3 levels _lower level: a wide green zone cut by pavement strips of circulation. Sunken sports field. _intermediate level: an elevated plaza sits on the basement of the building, organizing the different accesses, tangential to the building in a north-south direction. _higher level: a third private plaza is opened in the middle of the building, where all the funtions meet. This opening is to the building what the interior patio is to a bock. The building becomes a vertically projected Barcelona-block.

Civic projects

Forest watchtower Montseny, Catalunya, Spain. Design of a watchtower to be placed in a forest. The tower must rise at least 10m above the ground and should be built only with wood (and a fixture), taking into account that each bar can measure a maximum of 3m. Space surveillance should be at least 2x2m.

The tower is resolved by the triangulation of the bars that give rigidity to the structure converging in 6 member joints. The zigzag structure climbs to the summit where a guard shield protects the watchman and directs his gaze towards the horizon. The walls of the shelter are high enough to provide protection from rain, sun and wind, but always allowing 360ยบ view of the forest. The ladder is solved in two sets of stairs held onto the main bars.

Dwelling

40 units dwelling + day care facilities Via Augusta, Barcelona, Spain. 20 housing 50 m2 + 20 housing 120 m2 and 40 parking spaces. Day care facilities projected on the basement, making use of the interior patio. The plot is contained between two high walls in Via Augusta street.

The analysis of the area reveals a need for high building continuity required on Via Augusta street, while the height should be lower for the secondary street. This leads to a hybrid block solution.

Due to the irregularity of existing heights, geometries and ventilation patios, the solution formally adapts to the preexisting buildings so as to solve and complete the block. A deep fissure carves a patio for the lighting and ventilation of the apartments and the playground for the day care centre. The different housing typologies, although geometrically different, share the same kind of service nuclei and terrace.

The exercise is located on a triangular plot in Barcelona between the streets: Meridiana, Valldaura y Rio de Janerio. 3 paths - 3 levels: _ Access path - public - north / south _ Commercial alley - public - north / south _ Terraces promenade - Private - East / West Two separate paths at two different levels are open to the public so as to solve the gradient of the plot. A third private path is open on a third level above the public paths in the opposite direction so that its independence is assured. This path opens to generous common terraces connecting the nuclei of access to the three buildings.

Single family Castell del Sol, Barcelona, Spain. The exercise is located in the Castell del Sol development (urbanization??) in VallÊs Oriental area near Barcelona. The plot is 16x33 meters within very large free land which has electric lines running through it and a notable woody area in the South West. 40% of the plot is buildable, approx. 180200 m2. The development’s regulations must be taken into account: set back 6 m from the street, 4 m from neighbors and 3 m from the end of the plot.

A low white wall is at the front, separating cars and providing intimacy at night. By the huge garden a cozy entrance is offered through a visible paved path, with a tree at the side. A second free (??) wall partly shows some service steps that lead directly to the kitchen through a small yard. The service area (kitchen, yard and dining room) is thus elevated 4 steps over the rest of the house. The main entrance is the house’s center of gravity, separating the day and night areas. Upon entering, we perceive that the line which led us here is the same one that now leads the views to the garden, through a half-closed study.

The expansion contemplates the heterogeneity of a variety of typologies. The different volumes under different skins aim to come closer to spontaneous growth avoiding recognizable order, axiality, symmetry or repetition.


internship PHILIP STARCK


Internship

Philip Starck Ubik (Paris) Port Adriano Marina expansion and renovation in Mallorca, Spain. The expansion of the marina is driven by the construction of a new breakwater and the reorganization of the general plan. Part of the port facilities were to be redisigned, including: Harbor Master office, sailing school, gas station, restaurants, bar, commercial dock, lighthouse, shopping area, dry dock, repair shops, parking.

As a native of Mallorca, I helped as a general consultant in many areas of the plan, including the rethinking of the new commercial dock and dry dock, the market, and parking. I was a point of reference to the intimate areas of the port and advised the project team on architectural sensitive issues.
