extensible shelf_ This shelf is made for “La Ricarda�, a house located around Barcelona with a very conservative style and at the modernist times . One of the main features of this house is that all the objects and the structures are dymanic (they move, they see each other and they hide as you want) The design of this shelf is inspired by these caracteristics.

04 refugees.

Utopia n projects

reception center in paris_ This project consists of the creation of a reception center for refugees arriving in Paris. The objective was to create a center where all the primary needs were met, to include refugees inside Paris. For this reason we had place the structure utopically in the center of Paris. We found it interesting and functional to place it there, under the subway tracks, because it is an unused space that met all the requirements we were looking for. At the same time we created an economic and functional modular structure that could be repeated and therefore hosting more or less number of refugees depending on the situation.

05 Lapso. R ed es i g n of spa ces.

utopian community through the word “lighting”_ Welcome to the utopian community of Lapso. It is constituted by individuals who are driven by the most creative part of themselves and don’t follow the schedules and mental structure of those who are not used to live with it, that are who set the pace of today’s society. This community is been created to cover the basic human needs but also the most valuable need that all creative people depends on; the time. In order to manage your own time you will have to go to the central point of the society, a poetic and spiritual space where all the citizens gather to collect and transport the light of the plankton that comes directly from the sea. This structure is the only common space in the neighborhood, due to each member have its private space, and therefore it is also the center of community’s socialization. This space is constituted by two large domes made of cement, in order that the exterior light can’t penetrate inside this structure so you can see and appreciate the bioluminescence that there is in the interior.

redesign of student apartment in Paris_ This project consists of solving a problem very present in the student flats in Paris. The majority only consist of 10 to 15 m2, and the space is very poorly used and distributed. That’s why I did a redesign of one of these floors as work for the university where I had studied there.
