This masterplan comprises 245 units organised around two premises. One of them is setting up an urban spine that serves the site and connects it with the existing and future developments. The other premise is creating a dialog with the existing surroundings and maintaining this connection with nature within the development.

The site has been designed following a transition between the urban and rural zones within the area. The external features of the dwellings configure the character zones, together with the density. I designed a gradient from urban to rural style using diverse elements that configure the character of each zone.

Climatic conditions

FINAL THESIS: COMMUNITY SEED BANK

Seville has warm and dry weather most of the year, and is hotter during the summer. Those climate conditions gave me the opportunity to have an ambivalent inside/outside in the way that people use the building. It was important to analyse the incidence of sunlight and hot wind exposure to give specific answers for its challenges.

Andalusian Seeds Network Centre (”Red Andaluza de Semillas”) Preservation, recovering and swapping of traditional seeds. Prof.: Francisco Sanchez, Rafael Herrera, Miguel Ángel Gil, Javier Velasco, Jose M. Aladro, F. Manuel Garcilaso de la Vega.

N

The main aim of this project was to design facilities required for the network. This would help their development to provide for the city and, specifically, this area with a community centre that focused on ecology, wellness, organic lifestyle and consumption.
