MASTERS THESIS ABOUT The summary of my Masters in Architecture is concentrated in this project, which I developed receiving advice from my Spanish teachers in Madrid. A jury of 9 architects analized it, and graded it in Madrid, Spain, the 14th of February of 2014.
DESCRIPTION Lorca is a small town that was partially demolished due to the damages of an earthquake. My proposition is building a park with a unique geometry, to both refresh the public space and recycle the leftovers of the demolition. In addition to this park, I
architectures that can be build and dissasemble using the scaffolding that was used in other areas of the city to reconstruct the damaged buildings. The architectures are combinable
due to the modularity of the scaffolding. The project contemplates 20 combinations, including urban furniture, which can be set for either a day or several months depending on the demand of the neighbors.

RHAPSODY - LORCA
MASTERS THESIS WHY? MetaProject Breaking the paradigm of the public space, the proposal aims to involve the users to modify and
architecture from their experience
whatever project is needed. This is a project of projects, therefore the name.
DETAILS The proposal shows in detail
typologies with different programs that can, and have to, be combined to give social sense to the urban space. A place to relax and focus (study, meditate, pray...) a place for joy and activity (eating, dancing, chatting...) a place for privacy (shower, nurse...) are the main serving architectures, that will be complemented by: A storage hub, an energy tower and a waste disposal. All the possible architectures are built with the same components, all of them already in the town. This project is a fusion of sustainability, sociology, engineering and functionalism.
RESULT The jury appreciated the research effort regarding the program development processes and building materials. The result is a coherent research and a clear balance between its many small actions and the real needs of
context. GRADING: 70/100
AURINKOKIVI ABOUT This international competition was asking for the design of an educational hub, from kindergarden to high school, in a new urban area in Vantaa, Northern Helsinki.
DESCRIPTION The proposal was a compact building completely open to the landscape that combined the individual movement of the students and school staff with several playgrounds, harvest areas and common spaces that would enrich the
experience. Orthogonal volumes are
advantage of common facilities. The project was planned in two phases so the urban landscape would not change dramatically.

NURSERY + SCHOOL
WHY? Keidas In Finnish, Oasis, the project aims to be a break for the urban experience,
different atmospheres for the students. Introducing a pond and many trees in the playground, this oasis is a very livable place for young students.
DETAILS The whole project was planned to be developed in two phases,
in the diagrams. The phases wiould be built acording to the growth of the kids. The kindergarden program contemplates, a nursery, kindergarden, primary school and high school. Every group of students would have their own circulations to avoid
and their playgrounds are separated as well. The
the design was solving both the topography and respecting the
roads. The kindergarden area is
up to nine combinations for the classrooms.
RESULT No feedback from the jury. Winning proposal by Playa architects. (Helsinki Finland)

CAMPUS 2015 ABOUT
AALTO UNIVERSITY CAMPUS
This open international architectural design competition for Otaniemi central campus of Aalto University was held in Helsinki during the summer of the year 2012.
DESCRIPTION The original idea, developed by Karin Krokfors and Sari Nieminien, consisted on 4 fused volumes located on the opposite side of the main building, designed by Alvar Aalto in 1950. The proposal worked both in summer and winter due to the multiple spaces created in the cellar level that would help to connect the existing
TEAM Original idea: Karin Krokfors Saari Nieminen Assistants: Matúš Pajor Ana Mombiedro Heikki Myllyniemi Inés Wartiainen June 2012
WHY? Fuse Future goes towards fusion, therefore the idea of the new building was to merge all the technical disciplines to increase the interaction among students and enrich the university
With a very contrasted geometry, the Aalto Campus Square, as the hart of the proposal, articulates the surrounding buildings thanks to a unique treatment of the landscape. Slight slopes, glass façades and green surfaces in the square create a human scaled space, contrasted with the brick façades that face north, protecting the building from the cold winter and lack of sun. Is this lack of sun the reason for introducing glass surfaces both in the building and the park, to let light in the cellar level, where the students and professors hang out.
RESULT No feedback from the jury. Winning proposal by ALA architects. (Helsinki, Finland)
SATAMALAHTI ABOUT The city of Mikkeli, which is located in the south east of Finland, organized a public international two stage architecture ideas competition for the area of Satamalahti.
DESCRIPTION The purpose of the competition is to increase the density of Mikkeli’s city structure by designing a new model area for ecological construction,
the city centre to the Lake Saimaa shoreline. The competition will help to create a new image and brand of Mikkeli as a city on the shore of Lake Saimaa,
strategic aim of being a “Growth centre for modern services on the shore of Lake Saimaa”.
TEAM Original idea: Karin Krokfors Matúš Pajor Assistants: Ana Mombiedro Heikki Myllyniemi
WHY? Saimaanrannan Laulu It is the title of a traditional kids song from Finland. The whole proposal was treated as a musical theme in which all the components were in harmony sewing the public space.
DETAILS The meandering block structure opening out to the bay at Satamaranta forms a wall-like but at the same vibrant structure in the landscape. The shore zone is designed in free-form style in terms of residential blocks, leaving plenty of space for a public park on the shore. The variation of the built shore and gently designed park shorelines creates a varied shoreline landscape, particularly emphasising the urban nature of the harbour and the square on the lakeside.
RESULT HONORABLE MENTION Harmonious and skillfully created proposal which an overall solution sits naturally in its environment. The different subareas have their onw identities, emphasising the connection to the lake and on theis onw scale.
