“There is a moment when the silence of the countryside gathers in the ear and breaks into a myriad of sounds:a croaking and squeaking, a swift rustle in the grass, a plop in the water, a pattering on earth and pebbles, and high above all, the call of the cicada. The sounds follow one another, and the ear eventually discerns more and more of them -just as fingers unwinding a ball of wool feel each fiber interwoven with progressively thinner and less palpable threads-. The frogs continue croaking in the background without changing the flow of sounds, just as light does not vary from the continue winking of stars. But at every rise or fall of the wind, every sound changes and is renewed...�

FROM THE ROOTS TO THE LEAVES.O1 COURSE: PROJECTES IV (ETSABARCELONA) - JUNE 2014 LOCATION: L’HOSPITALET (BARCELONA) PROGRAM: HOUSING+RETIREE CLUB+CREATION INDUSTRY

TUTOR: JOSEP BOHIGAS M2:10000

The project is implated in a very dense area of l’Hospitalet, a past agricultural village of the outskirts of Barcelona. It faces two complicated urban situations. Northern side, the ferrioviary line that conects the capital with the southern catalan litoral, the trainrailway breaks the continuity of the city. Eastern a giantic comercial center opaque facade on a main comunication street with a lot of traffic creates an absolutely desertic ambiance. Around the half of the different plots to work on are nowadays occupied by some early-mid s.XIX now abandoned industries, one of them (The Hermanos Albert) of a certain historic importance. The program main statement is to build a social housing compound of 100 units and make it compatible with a small public facility. The faculty proposes a retiree club, which is indeed needed for the area. Oppositely the City Hall has a real project of a Co-working space for young musicians and artists with concert hall, restaurant and galleries; what is commonly called a Creation Industry. This project decides to make compatible both programs on an essay to activate the dry area, some of the old industrial buildings will be rehabilitated for the public buildings use, the mainly empty part of the plot will be occupied by the houses. The decission to make a building of a certain dimension and presence, following the characteristics of the neighbourhood and which could stand up against the urban situation, makes possible to leave a big part of the plot empty, whic allows to develope what becomes the main leitmotiv of the project, a public space, a small forest which recuperates this part to the city for the people and the vegetal kingdom.

EXTENDING THE BRANCHES, A PARASITE BUILDING As the project developes (see futher pages to get some pictures of the process), a new suggestion appears. The building will not only be as generous as to give a forest as a present to the neighbourhood but it will extend its branches to the sorrounding post-war housing buildings of very reduced quality to improve them, proposing a simbiotic building. A hybrid system of buildings which could be only understand with the public space that it embraces.

An offset appears between both buildings, making the first 3,1 m. the height difference will repeat every 5 floors. The ramps created as arms that nab the buildings will modify their length to have an accceptable acclibity (less than the 8%). Both buildings will share communication points and common spaces, making a system out of a metaphor. A critic to an iron regulations which finally forbid any attempt of innovative improvement.

PROC

The project followed a quite long and intense process. From the first analysis plans made, a problem of urban quality was easily identified, the presence of both the comercial center with no acces form the main street and the train railway produced a delicate situation. The problem of the neighbourhood was not a lack of activity, but a poor public space and an abscence of communication between some parts of the district. The not much long time ago basically exclusive use of the lands of l’Hospitalet for agricultural purposes was taken into very special account as a part of the identity of the city. Which also was poblated by inmigrants form villages of the southern Spain during the past XX century economical crysis. These people came from an agricultural culture aswell. The green, the vegetation, as a measure of reidentifying the place and achieving conection with other parts of the city is then choosed as a main part of the project.

14


CESS

The houses will be then considered as places that will be embraced by this green blanket, as many inspirational references in architecture and literature over centuries, reflecting the natural desire of mankind. The compound will play a main role as the nourisher (thanks to greywater collection and treatment) of this “not that new� vegetal area. The rest of the program (retiree club, creation industry, small concert hall) will be placed along the spaces as interconected pavilions or bigger buildings, conquering the old factories, along with the herbage. All in all trying to answer to a new flow of the neighbourhoog into a primary activity hotspot which could propose a change in it, dynamizing the area. And who knows, maybe then the comercial center for example could be interested in opening up its visage to the brand new situation.

CONCEPT The project, at the level of the housing units, plans a very theoretical approach to a flexible housing unit. Departing from two associated units, composed by a core (kitchen+bathroom+living room) and the rooms, which are all conected by galleries that face the interior park, creating spaces for reading, studying, some wardroves, etc. This structure and spacial form is thought to make possible an evolution of the house, the rooms can easily be substracted and passed from one house to another (most times just by adding or removing a small piece of wall, khl panels as construction material are used to make this easier), allowing the house to adapt to the needs of the resident. Being very optimistic of course, about a possible association between neighbours. The most basic unit becomes now the rented room.

THE ORIGINAL ABSOLUTELY CLOSED STRUCTURE

REVALORIZE THE PATIOS

LET THE SPORES SPREAD - REHABILITATION As the branches of the building extend and embrace the sorounding housing buildings, the interior of them is affected and therefore rehabilitated. The post-civil war housing tipology (minimum facade, minimum surface, maximum profit) is tyed to be improved by mainly spacial and functional not big changes, logically maintaining the original number of users of the housing unit.

FINAL PROPOSAL - HOUSE CORRIDOR The houses length + small width is taken into account to develope the proposal, increase a little bit the corridor size and introduce uses into it (kitchen, living room, storage...). The patio is revalorized, restored, mirror pieces orientated N-S bring light to the lower levels, big windows and movable panels make this corridor more luminous and allow rooms to invade it. In a house that now is very open but still very small the parents room is maintained as a more independent unit, having a two corps house; the parents, and the corridor.

CONSTRUCTIVE SYSTEMS BUILDING A FILTER The main point of the principles of the constructive system are to match ecological reduced impact with the construction of the filter and the memory of the place. The whole filter is considered as a gradation of elements repeated, vertical rounded sitcks. Which create a hierarcy of spaces at the same time as they have and spatial, privacy and functional impact. Most of them are produced from recycled plastic, some of wood, trying to connect with the idea of a forest of sticks, some others have a metal core that allows them to have a semistructural use as support for fences. Some of them get thicker and as pilars sustain the building . These last invade the recuperated vegetal land with their concrete foundations, stilts, less contaminant than a concrete slab are a priori used, at the same time, the same number of trees bury their roots into it to oxygenate and renew it. As explained before, KLH panels are used to close the buildings. The main objective tries to stay clear, to build a tree.

The project statement is to design a winery, having as a departure point studying the wine process and two prominent buildings built for that purpose; Cesar Martinell XIX-XX centuries Cathedrals of Wine in the Terra Alta of Catalunya, a paradigm of thechnical, functional and spacial architecture construction. Radicality is considered a virtue and therefore boosted. The two weeks intensive work ended up in a fictional yet not very developed, but strong and fresh proposal, a flying winery.

BIT BY BIT, DECOMPOSING THE BODEGA - STUDIES IN PLACE EMILY&MIGUEL - FLOWS&STRUCTURE

MARCOS&DIMITRI - OVERALL CONCEPTS


A very important part of the project was the previous study and understanding of the wine process and the engine of a winery. The data collection and interpretation was key to develop the project, we visited the Cathedrals of Wine. There, we checked different aspects of the performance of the mythic wineries around the production of wine itself. We splited in groups that studied different aspects, the ones which took more importance when proposing and developing the projects are here included.

Emily and I, we used all the students of the workshop, around 40 people to check their movement around the working and serving spaces of the wineries. We attached very long pieces of string to everybodies feet, made them walk and registered their displacements, the conflictive points, the role that the tanks, the barrels and the infraestructure had, and how the spatial configuration of the building could serve better the wine production process. By doing this, we realized that the reduced spaces between all the big containers of grape, juices, and wine were deffinitely not making easy a delicate process in which vertical movement is the idoneous, since gravity is the main worker of the whole process (avoiding the use of pumps, whic alterate the wine conditions). So following a vertical winery (wine should move from the top, the grapes, to the ground following pressing, sedimentation of the wine, and fermentation basically), we decided that a winery built up in levels which could allow workers and machinery to do their job without interfering in the sleep of wine would be a great idea. And then somehow somebody imagined a winery which didn’t touch the ground, and could fly harvesting and pressingg the wine, and then leaving it underground to rest. As an insect injects its grubs so they age well treated until they’re ready. And we quickly arrived to the best shape for vertical displacement of charges, catenaries, and of course, the great architect of 3D catenaries, Antoni Gaudi.

Camille and Berkay, they tested the temperature in different areas of the winery by measuring the fastness of the molten of ice cubes placed all over the building. That way, they discovered, that even with the innovation and adaptation of the building done by Cesar Martinell, the homogeneity of heat, a crucial factor in the sedimentation and aging of wine, was very difficult to be achieved in a place that needs such a big three-dimensional volume. They came with the idea of an intelligent facade for the building, a skin made of bubbles, which by checking the interior temperatures, could react swelling or deflating, increasing or decreasing the isolation, or injecting hot or cold air, recreating the perfect enviroment for wine.

Marcos and Dimitris, checked also the temperature and tried to combine it with humidity and the factor of work. Both very involved in the last stages of the aging of wine. First they measured their own transpiration after doing some exercice in different parts of the winery, by drawing it into large pieces of paper. After that they did another experiment, they took very cold objects and took notes of the condensation of water on their surface after introducing them in different enviroments of the place. Their work produced many conclusions and brought us many ideas, we thought about the perfect shapes to introduce and extract humidity from the aging caves (bottles require a dry enviroment, while barrels a humid one), with their drawing they made also a fantastic topography for the vines, which included the caves, compost deposits with detritus of the harvest, etc.


Fig. Final model in Roca Gallery exhibition. In between the arches of the legendary wineries designed of Cesar Martinell, used by us as observatiories of the wine landscape, calmly rests, over a field of vines, our flying creation. The catenaries hang, embracing the tanks, the pressing engines and a selection of the finest plantations of grapes. The gigantic parabolic structures connect the machine with the underground caves, to stract or inject humidity to them. After the harvest it will fly somewhere else, leaving the vines to the care of the land their people until next occasion arrives. // Picture with copyright by Sergi Romero


All the ideas crystallised in a section that could express the benefits that guided us to the proposal of a vertical winery, which following the needs of the wine process would permit the gentle displacement of wine during its different steps. At the same time as it relates to a landscape and a functional idea, our dream of a flying winery.

The exercice takes place on an elongated plot which crosses the industrial park of l’Hospitalet, in conctact with the hystorical village in the north and the seventies residential state of Bellvitge southern. After many proposals, and taking into account the nature and use of the living units, specially the social factor, it was understood that putting the people to “live on the streets”, by housing on ground floor with capacity to invade the urban spaces, was the most efficient way to fill the nowadays desertic area with people and activity. And by that, to connect both parts of the discontinuous city. People are suposed therefore to conquer the street, and street to conquer the houses. Being impossible to locate the whole amount of the houses on ground floor, since the plot would collapse, it was chosen to arrive to GF+1 and GF+2 (duplex) in punctual areas, one goal is to be achieved, to be able to arrive home by bycicle. The empty plot on the opposite side of the street (south) is later invaded to locate a small park with urban orchards, and a kids playground, trying this way, to jump over the train tracks. Joining “psichologically” the neighbourhood to Barcelona (just on the opposite side of the tracks).

GROUND FLOOR PLAN The houses are ubicated creating three long interconected new substreets, all the areas are of pedestrian priority, car circulation being regulated by perimetral streets. The land of the houses is not absolutely flat, as if of a sandbar left by the ancient watercourse was, an artificial topography remarks the apropiation of the landscape the compound has, at the same time as it regulates water evacuation, etc. Small squares for people to meet are designed,, and ramps to acces by bike the upper levels are strategically located. Locals for comercial use are positionated on one side of the aggregate. No underground parking is thought. Instead a system of electric automoviles, and bikes of community use is proposed.

Sustainability in this project is a keypart of it. he infraestructure, which uses standarized structural items, is of small, and manageable size, allowing the possibility of deconstructing the agregate. After that, a whole system that plans direct vinculation of the neighbours is proposed, water treatment and recycling for green areas and orchards irrigation. No underground parking is thought. Instead a system of electric automoviles, and bikes of community use is proposed. Solar panels obliged by regulation, most convenient orientation, etc.

The quarter is caracterized for the presence of an artificial waterway called Rec which served the industries, nowadays, most of them abandoned. There are though fantastic examples of traditional past centuries leather tannery industries, showing beautiful demonstration of catalan vernacular architecture. A plan of intervention and renovation of the place is in the future to be proposed, already being the place for some international artistic fairs. The exercice consists on building an architecture students residence made of individual autonomous units, in an empty unbuilt plot at the border of the Rec, facing the river that brings water to the city. On the backside, is ubicated the Rec, as it is considered as part of the city heritage, the wall facing it cannot disappear, maintaining the original height.

As a living unit, the exercice consisted in designing an space for a second year architecture student, a very unrealistic program that anyway leaded to a reflexion about the essential needs, and a possible current basic living unit. In my case it became one single main space which could have many purposes and be invaded in many ways, views to the river, a relationship with the neighbours and optimal orientation were key. On the other side I divided my needs into physical and psichological, making it easier to now what to achieve, and how to do it.

The exercice consists in the rehabilitation of a XVIII leather tannery industry, into a small workshops building for young enterprises. The first step done is to consider the building as part of the place history, adding the importance of some of the parts of it as example of catalan architecture (specially the “volta catalana” which can be found covering part of the ground level.). Therefore, the strategy is to conserve what is considered of value and is possible to make compatible with the program of the project. Since the structural state of the building would be really expensive to add any other floor, and the program would have many problems to fit in the existing building, a part of the patio is decided to be invaded by a communications volume. Following the aesthetics of the new piece, the rest of the building is renewed as if the volume’s virus was spreading. The program is divided between the two floors, on the upper level, the workspaces for the young companies, on the ground floor, a room for presentations, the public toilets, and the lunch space, they are designed as subsequent spaces that can be conected to make a whole big room, since these young enterprises need a lot of publicity to show they’re products, their work, this attractive space to give them an image impulse, and to favorise the social exchange of the companies and the sense of community becomes a very important part of the program.

The exercise consist basically in designing a promenade for people and cars in a Valldoreix, a village of the metropolitan area of Barcelona (in el VallĂŠs, just behind the mountain range of Collserolla). The project develops in four different exercices that concern different aspects of urban landscape layout. Topography and the drawn of a way and a cut according to it is taken very into account, since is considered as essential part of the discipline, also are acclivities and measures for sidewalks, roads, etc. The different parts of the project are the following: 1. Drawing of a main lane for a new village based on the current topography of valldoreix (without any urban context information) 2. Project of a prom between two points taken into account the urban context. 3. Developement of a big urban proposal putting together three enchained proms (work group) 4. Project of two urban spaces of major impotance in the n.2 prom.

DRAWING A MAIN LANE O6.1 This practice consisted in the drawing of a main lane for a new village just based in it topography and orientation, a caligraphic training mainly. The proposoal starts at the point A (both points are given) starts besides the river, thinking that it will estabilsh its own order in the future the street starts its ascension laying on the softer south slopes, afavorizing the best orientation for the future buildings. To make possible a correct acclivity for a lane of this type the street has to come down at one point, also breaking the monotonous ascension and therefore drawing in the plan, and in the longitudinal section (see in the following pages) the same movements; a rise a valley and a final ascension. Always giving it the privilege of a trace that has views and control over the territory.

DESIGNING A PROM O6.2 In Valldoreix a suburban tissue of independent small houses was spread without any coherent plan. Giving as a result a town with very strong problems related with the connection between different groups of houses and an extremely poor urban quality. The project of a promenade is therefore not just an operation of embellishment of a very forgotten part of the town, the irregular torrent and its surroundings, but a plan for linking the various housing groups, public buldings and sports facilites that are somehow spread over the landscape without urban cohesion. Also the lack of identity of an extremely selfish construction of the city is tried to be repaired by links to the territory, and the past of the village -a mainly agricultural population-, and the creation of public spaces for the reunion and sharing of the now individualistic settling.


THE PROM The promenade appears from two main ideas, the river and the slope (crowned by the Mas Fuster, an old farm hous and old landlord of almost the whole village). Leaning on a geography determined by the watecourse, the promenade is articulated in between four main spaces. A small square in the sports and school areas; a series of small resting spaces in the â&#x20AC;&#x153;forestâ&#x20AC;?, behind the houses that give to Olympia Street. Another resting space, but more open, as the point from which starts a walk to Collserolla Mountain Range; and the last, a gazebo in a park linked to the Mas Fuster, in the highest point, explaining the story of the place itself as a topography. Of course, the fragmented town is always tried to be conected by finnishing abandoned streets and proposing new linking roads.


longitudinal section


THE TRACE Because of the configuration of the territory three tracts with different acclivities appear. A very soft ascension until the prom abandons the torrent, another one with a stronger acclivity rises to the Mas Fuster, and a last gentle ascension that arrives to the existing street and finishes the prom. The trace has to split into two when it reaches Olympia Street, because there is not enough space to fit two road car lanes leaning on the torrent. It will after it join the main road again. All the gestures of the traces try to, at the same time: maintain the existing conection without changing the terrain height at those points; reach an appropiate acclivity; create spaces that conected to the preexistent uses and buildings bringing life to the project.


cross-sections


THE SKIN Pavement used is a double type of stone (one softer than the other, by both materiality and tackel) that change wheather the part of the prom has a more vegetal or mineral character. Wood pavement also appears at some places, when a deeper link with nature is wanted to be achieved. Vegetation chosen is basically mediterranean, adding some foraneous species that can live in the climate to add some diversity. An aromatic promenade is also proposed by rosemary, lavender and other southern plants that appear and disappear along the prom.


A SYSTEM OF FREE SPACES O6.3 GROUP: ANA LLETJÓS, MARCOS JUBIERRE, MIGUEL HERNÁNDEZ

The third part of the exercise consisted in developping a plan for a green collar in Valldoreix, by working in groups of three people. Each one of the members of the group had worked a different promenade in the step before this. These were conected so it was easy to develope a project with them as a departure part. We tried to propose a system of free spaces that interacted with the city, the mountain of Collserolla -to which the town now gives the back- and the motorway that connects the population with Barcelona. URBAN ANALYSIS AND PROPOSAL Our analysis consisted in the location of the public buildings, exisiting green areas, buildings that generate a certain activity, streets that could be used to connect the parts of the scattered city and points in which the connection with the mountain could be easier. As a proposal, our free spaces system became a green collar that would sorround and infiltrate in the village closing the circle eastward. At the train station that connects the village with Barcelona, and westward at a big public space associated to the motorway that also arrives to the city and whith which Vall -doreix currentlydoesn’t have a connection.

Existing vegetation conversion into accesible green areas.

“The Big Forest of Valldoreix”

A big system of public spaces, public orchards, sport facilities and public buildings as a general project of a park that laids on the current state of a place of the city. The point where the town connects with the motorway.

The connection streets

“La Plaça del Castell”

The Castel of Canals was the residence of the duque of Canals until the year 1306 when with its territories they were sold to the abbey of the next town of Sant Cugat. Its rest (basically a ston wall), are the only memento of the very first owner of the lands.

The green tentacles Different character for different parts

According to the possibilities and needs of the tissues around them.

Mas Fuster Balcony

As explained before, a gazebo to see the mountain, a park for a building that explains Valldoreix Story and territory.

El Camí de la Serra

The prom borders the mountainside proposing paths connecting with the hiking routes, on the other side, it connects the town with sports facilites already existing. It also acts as a limit for the growth of the city up the mountain, the last green before the very infraestructural green, Collserolla.

Boulogne-Billancout is known for being the place of birth of three of the biggest industries of France; cinema, aviation, and automobile. Working where one of this industries was located, probably should leave a print in this place, as part of the history of it. Thats what maintianing some of the industry infraestructure, the placement of some block and specially the new pavement aim to do.

PATIO.O9 COURSE: URBANÍSTICA I - TARDAS - JUNE 2013 TUTOR: MAR SANTAMARÍA LOCATION: BARCELONA, CATALUNYA EXERCICE: ANALYSIS OF A PUBLIC BUILDING, IDENTIFICATION OF A PROBLEM, AND QUICK PROPOSAL OF AN INTUITIVE SOLUTION (VIDEO-SCRIPT)

132


The exersice analyses the National Catalan Library, which occupies the building of the ancient Hospital de la Santa Creu. Departing from it, I found what for me where three main problems of this building and specially its relationship with its own public space -The problems to infiltrate into the buildings patio. This means, the acces to the building itself. -The lack of porosity of the building within its patio. -The configuration of the main space of the patio. Around it I proposed some easy solution in a project of a video that we finally didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have time to make.

133


Cerdaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s block is known for having a lot of empty space which brings to enormous block patios that allow a good ventilation. Lately some of these patios have been opened to the street because de Eixample is a very dense tissue which suffers a lack of public spaces. In the case of the Biblioteca Nacional de Catalunya Block, the amount of empty free space is even bigger than a Cerdaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s block space.

134


The Raval is a very dense neighbourhood, around 50.000 people live in 1,1 km2. What reachs a density of 45.000pers/m2, while the media in the hole city of Barcelona is of around 16.000 pers/m2. Public squares are very reduced, there isn’t any public park, nor in the very inmediate area. Streets are usually very crowded, since its a very touristic area.The urban tissue is an old citie’s one, therefore natural ventilation in the houses is not usually achieved, families tend to have a very low income and the apartments are many times very crowded. The conclusion of all of this is that any open space in the middle of this urban compact mass is of great value, and in the case of the Biblioteca Nacional de Catalunya’s patio, the public space is barely exploited.

DON’T STAY AT THE DOOR.1O COURSE: URBANÍSTICA I - TARDAS - APRIL 2013 TUTOR: MAR SANTAMARÍA PARTNER: VIOLETA GARCÍA LOCATION: BARCELONA, CATALUNYA EXERCICE: ANALYSIS OF A PUBLIC SQUARE, IDENTIFICATION OF A PROBLEM, AND QUICK PROPOSAL OF AN INTUITIVE SOLUTION BY A VIDEO. The square, whose shape is delimited by the facades of the houses that sorround it, as many of the old buildings of the district of Sarrià (where the square is located), has a particular uniqueness, it has its own hall. After an analysis of the square, starting from its birth and configuration, and by many visits many days at different times to check how the public space was behaving, we made different drawing that tryied to explain what this square was. Which were its strong points and its weaknesses, and we proposed a solution of a change of use in one of the locals which would end with the visit of some drug dealers on the nights. We proposed it through a video that also showed our investigations.

historical interpretation

the square appeared as an emptying of some plots of the suburban tissue (configuration tissue from the agricultural plots) to build the Casa de la Vila (Old Town, now District City Hall) in 1895

PROPOSAL: A CHANGE OF USE After many field visits, we found that since the square is a quite hidden place in a very residential area, the corner in which there werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t any establishment or interaction between the buildings and the public spaces became a very esteemed place for drug dealers and youngsters to drink in the nights. Given that the houses donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a tall height, neighbours tended to listen everything and found ir very disturbing. Also the rests of the nocturnal activities were left there the day after, and it is a place in which many kids play. So, as we did not consider that closing the square in the nights was a good option, we proposed a change in one of the ground floor of the buildings in that corner. On the video we made, we suggested puting a new small bar or cafeteria, although our first option was to locate there the police office.
