The final masters project rises up from the personal inquisitiveness of getting to control and combine, at once, several architectural approaches such as the urban, the programmatic, the social or even the formal. [CAM] pretends to become an urban nexus within the city, providing it with landscape continuity through the building itself and integrating the urban nucleous towards this side of the peninsula.

The Cadiz Vortex 2017 - 2018

It is for this main reason that the design concept avoided since the begining the construction of a solid volume that would strictly create a new physical and visual barrier between the city center and the sea. A new urban landscape and terrain modification inside which the different activities would be carried out was therefo-

It seems understandable that an area such as the Cadiz bay, with the large waterfront that embraces it, historically oriented its prosperity towards the sea. Although it had traditionally developed a commerce activity related to other maritime labours, Cadiz has always had its relative importance within the industrial sector. The naval sector has always been essential for the city economy, being mainly based on the repairing of the many ships that arrived to its bay. Therefore, since these early times until now, the naval industry has always had a huge repercusion within the city economy drastically altering its levels as its running activities oscillate up and down. It is for this reason that big international industrial companies such as NAVANTIA or AIRBUS set up their headquarters in the province long time ago. Currently, both industries propose a real programm in which they join together in order to develop a center [CAM] where new industrial techniques can be researched and developed by the implementation of new technologies

Flowlines projected onto surface I

The concept Rheotomic Surface, developed by Daniel Piker, involves the mathematical generation of ‘walkable’ interconnected surfaces. With ‘Rheo’ from the Greek for flow and ‘Tomos’ meaning cut or section, the geometry resulting from the implication of mathematical equations comes out as a smooth, continuous surface that horizontally connects at once different levels.

The Cadiz Vortex 2017 - 2018

Simply put, two points are walkable connected if one can draw a curve on the surface between them along which top and bottom never switch planes. Therefore, through plotting clockwise and counter-clockwise helical points in x and y on a mesh plane, a chain of real and imaginary components from complex numbers can be generated, in turn making it possible to then plot the vertical points

10

Flowlines separated from surface I

Flowlines extruded and thickened I: structural ribs

of the helicoid. Finally, to allow the surface to be connected, a separate algorithm is necessary to remove the unecessary surface excess. This is also very usefull structurally, as it means that loads can always be passed down into the surface. Thus, Rheotomic Surfaces combine useful and dynamic architectural form with structural performance. Furthermore, they utilize geometry not just as a fancy roof or a decorative pattern, but as the fundamental generator of an exciting new type of space, one which avoids many of the common pitfalls and provides a viable alternative to the flat parallel and orthogonal places of architecture based on the Cartasian Box.


Final building form: surfaces combination for total continuity inside and outside the building. Programatic use is also approached.

Surfaces Disposition Structural Grid The final building disposition is achieved through the repetition, as many time as necessary, of a single programmed surface that is then non-digitally edited regarding also the urban context.

The Cadiz Vortex 2017 - 2018

In such way the joint between them is absolutely smooth thus achieving complete continuity.

The program asks for a hierarchical distribution of spaces that are clearly differentiated ones from the others. The first type is designed for the installation of big machinery which requires a room with a large free height and an uninterrupted floor space for its proper functioning. On the other hand, the second type assigned for office uses requires a much partitioned space with a standard height.

The Cadiz Vortex 2017 - 2018

The spatial alteration is achieved through the connections of two surfaces with different curvatures that are joint at the highest point and start to separate as they approach the ground (lowest point), thus providing the second type of spaces in between them.

The project involved the combination of a hybrid program, where an extensive music school, a student housing and an energy-efficient concept were played together, and mixed into one. The water-purifcation treatment played a role in the union of these matters mentioned above, and apart from carrying-out its main purpose, it served as a thermal and acoustic insulator around the different programs, penetrating them through small canals, into efte panel coverings/facades.

DEGREE ON ARCHITECTURE 5th year URBAN LANDSCAPE - 2015 In collaboration with ANA CARRERAS


Restoring a natural habitat was a first stop in mind that later introduced other features and uses into the project: Cordoba over the River attracts focal and new tourists, restores the historical part of the city, reunifies the ancient wall of Cordoba, and creates new pedestrian flows and networks giving a new identity to the city. Cordoba over the River is a large and powerful project that could bring a sort of modern/ old prosperity to the beautiful city of Andalucia.

The concept of the proposal being drawn out is to reunify an identity inside the city of Cordoba. This has been done through the assesement of several topics: viewports, heights, landscape visibility, historical background, modern aims, natural habitats and resources.

24

The walkway being proposed is drawn following the footsteps of the old wall/ fortress of Cordoba. It later adapts into an organic form following the Guadaliquivir flows whilst creating new homes for the living fauna around the area and opening new possibilities for tourism. The observatory at the highest point of the walkway is set at south where the city of Cordoba can be appreciated as a whole. Its shape wines around the idea of the sun way, as it is born in the east and sets in the west. Connections are viable through any of the two sides of the river.

WORKHOME in Couvet Couvet, Switzerland

Project Name Year

The way of working and living is in constant change. The way things are produced is going digital more and more as time passes by. Prototyping and high-tech enables high precision manufacturing to take place in a domestic scale.

26

This leads, together with the co-working of different fields as one, to the neccesity of investigating what a factory of the future might be like and its implications in both working and living spaces.

Absinthe is historically described as a destilled, hiExample ghly alcoholic beverage, originated on Couvet at the +it late 18th century. It has a natural green colour and is commonly referred to as the ‘green fairy’.

However, this area is famous not only because of Clothes Moth This destructive pest the absinthe but also by the factories of clothes and damages the clothes watches. Dubied was a company that used to sell sewing machines and the town became in a way famous when this factory was set up as workers started to live there when this ocurred.

Considering these three main topics of the area we propose a calendar where all of them are integrated with each other,=providing in this sense a bigger richness to the program. WorkHome follows a projectBio-Textile process from the first Clothes be protected step to the last one, from thecolud owners decisions to the from the clothes moth!. construction on site.

WorkHome bets for the communication and interaction between members of both communities, enriching the social behaviour and knowledge of the people and creating a more comfortable atmosphere of life. Residential developments and knowledge based organisations usually rely on a spectrum of spatial thresholds to provide spaces which are private, semi-private and public, which enables different activities to occur and different types of work to take place.

Flower_Tower is based on the idea of vertical farming, which consists on stacking cultivation systems called aquaponics floor by floor.

FlowerTower 2015 - 2016

Madrid Four Towers are located on Paseo de La Castellana, a central area of the capital of Spain. The location for the fith tower is chosen in order to receive as less shadow as possibles from the other four.

The Fibonacci numbers are natureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s numbering system. They appear everywhere in nature, from the leaf arrangement in plants, to the pattern of the florets of a flower, the bracts of a pinecone, or the scales of a pineapple. Why do these arrangements occur? In the case of leaf arrangement, some of the cases may be related to maximizing the space for each leaf increasing the average amount of light falling on each one. And this is one of the main issues to take into account when refering to vertical farming. What a better thing then than looking at nature to create and design a system in which interior plants are going to be cultivated? FlowerTower is shaped following this natural principle of Fibonacci, creating its platforms a series of spirals along its central core as if dealing with a flower. In such way more light is received by each of its petals benefiting the growth of most of the products cultivated on them.

ARCADE

Sharjah, United Arab Emirates

Arcade 2015 - 2016

Sharjah has become the cultural pearl of the UAE. It is a hub for islamic culture, art and architecture, where several events and activities are being internationally manifested and explored every year.

38

However, sustainability is till a taboo in this city. Considering the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s current objectives and important focuses on this topic, the initiative of a project towards reaching sustainability in Sharjah has been put to thought. Such an artistic and cultural center in the UAE, should also be represented with similiar levels of sustainable awareness and participation.

DEGREE ON ARCHITECTURE 5th year DESIGN STUDIO 2015 - 2016


Arcade 2015 - 2016

Identify an opportunity within the given site; alterate an architectural piece of an existing building or landscape. Key concepts: density, art, energy, social performance.

Bottom: Heart of Sharjah_ Building anc uses analysis

The analysis of Sharjah indicates the need for drastic change in sustainable approaches, especially due to the fact that there are currently none. This project proposes to restore this somewhat lost culture and bribe it with a sustainable twist. Through a new drawn-out manifesto, we begin an approach on Sharjah and its cultural heart with the aim of restoring it. This manifesto is a guidance to better conduct with the people and with the environment. A study of the traditional architecture in terms of shape, design, materiality and energetic strategies is carried out to mark the rebirth of Sharjah: re-writing history but looking towards the future.

Arcade is finally located right at the heart of Sharjah, inside the perimeter of the old wall and where the Sharjah Art Foundation (SAF) can also be found. It integrates a mixuse program which raises the complex from complete public spaces to a absolutely private use: zouq in the ground floor; library, workshop and exhibition spaces at the second floor; temporary residential units for artists at the third one.

THE LIVING PAVILION Madrid, Spain

DEGREE ON ARCHITECTURE 5th year DIGITAL FABRICATION CLUB 2015 - 2016

Project Name Year

Considering future buildings as intelligent robotic systems opens a new way of a fruitful interaction between Architecture, Robotics and Artificial Intelligence which is full of potential both from the point of view of research and impact in peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lives.

46

The pavilion presents various robotic protoypes developed by several students and researchers of the school of architecture Universidad Europea de Madrid. To showcase these prototypes, the Club of Digital Fabrication of the same institution was created to fabricate a large robotized structure that is in itself a demonstration of how these technologies can be applied on an architectural scale.


Project Name Year

Design and build a â&#x20AC;&#x153;living â&#x20AC;&#x153;pavillion with animal features and interactive robotic components for the art festival Mulafest in the Madrid Trade Fair Ifema.

Future buildings will have the capability of reconfiguring some of their main components such as faรงades, rooftops and partitions, as well as lighting systems and other functional or decorative elements. Such components will likely be equipped with sensors and actuating elements, moved according to some perception-control-action loop. They can therefore be considered robotic systems at all effects. As such, they can be provided with learning and adaptation capabilities. Such feature will allow them to perform accordingly to the activities that take place in the building, and respond intelligently to internal and/or external environmental conditions and even according to the emotional status of the users, with the purpose of optimizing the resources employed (i.e. energy efficiency), as well as improving the comfort, empathy and wellbeing of the users. Not forgetting other characteristics that are associated to architecture such as symbolic, artistic and expressive values.

Living Pavilion 2015 - 2016

The economical crisis in Spain produced a 26% unemployment rate. Many unemployed in Spain that lost their jobs where part of the construction industry, which is also responsible for producing low quality architecture all across the country. The same is true for commercial pavillions, stands and any other ephemeral interventions. In this context we have decided to avoid machine made industrial construction systems and develop an architecture that is based on many hours of labor.

50

This decision has proven to be important in other angles. Because of the complexity and the beauty of the pavillion and the skills that had to be developed, it has been a challenge for the people involved and it has proved that everyone is ready to give the extra mile when there is an ambitious goal that point towards a result that is of artistic worth. This increases the quality of the construction, but also, and most importantly, it has been very important for the laborers, as it represented for them a way of testing, learning and finally showing their abilities that potentially opened

them new possibilities of work. This has also served them in regaining the dignity lost in their profession, as industrial construction products are quite boring to put together, especially when a similar action has to be repeated endlessly.

A MATTER OF LIGHT

A Matter of Light results on a classificatory system of architecture projects regarding the use of light. The proposed research analyzes the wide range of resultant situations proceeding from the action of light (and all its properties) when having an impact on the different architectonical shapes. For this purpose it is necessary to take into account some other fundamental factors such as materiality and also some secondary ones, such as the spatial character of architecture or the environment where it is located.

DEGREE ON ARCHITECTURE 5th year FINAL DEGREE THESIS 2016 - 2017

The primary objective is to get to classify very specific physical situations that could be brought about by combining a determined light property together with an architectonic one provided of a spatial or constructive character. Analyzing those that already exist which have been generated all along history, the aim of the research is not to develop an exhaustive study of the well-known architects or architectural projects that work with light, but either identifying the ones that better adapt to certain circum- stances or conditions and that serve as reference for each of the cases. The study pretends to tackle a partial aspect of an architectural project, light, without denying the importance of the combination of some others to be able to identify some of the greatest works inside the architecture field. It is focused on the element that provides the design with visibility and on its power to be able to transform those spaces. It neglects the analysis of the functional aspect of the whole to be able to center the attention in the intentioned creation of a certain atmosphere in a certain fragment of a building. The classificatory system of architecture projects is developed within a webpa- ge through which users can navigate to be able to discover the different exam- ples, each of them categorized under a certain combinatorial analysis of terms. At the moment, the webpage only works for the first 15 chosen examples, al- though this number would be increased soon enough. The link to visit the webpage is as follows:
