hi, my name is Maria Ortiz, architect graduated at the Universitat Politècnica de València. I would like you to see a small resume of my projects, both academic and professional. I would love to have an oportunity in your studio, to learn and become a great professional in the field. best regards,


housing group academic projects


housing group located close to the river shore. there was just housing in the programm but they had a huge variety. 34 houses for 2, 3 or 4 people, that should dialogue with the preexistence of the lot.


restaurant in ‘el tremolar’ academic projects


restaurant located in the natural space of ‘el tremolar’ (alfafar), close to the natural park of ‘la albufera’ the tilt roof references the traditional local architecture, made with tiles, but read into a contemporary way.


urban intervention in ‘la fe’ academic projects


site approaching exercise. urban intervention in the area of the old ‘la fe’ hospital, in Valencia. the main idea of the project is to break with the monotony of the place creating a series of squares, roads and zig-zags that invite the user to walk in and enjoy the city.


housing block academic projects


the project takes place in the previous analyzed area. this project is a small housing block of 1,2 and 3 bedrooms with 5 commercial spaces in the ground floor, that orient to a big square. the faรงade plays with the metal slats that being sliding panels, give flexibility and change to the faรงade, besides protecting from the sun.


corporate architecture design projects


parametric furniture, biegen vs spannen (bend vs tighten) the concept was that a base line can create different furniture elements, depending on the way that it moves. that line was materialized in rhinoceros, creating a ‘waffle structure’ that was later cut with a cutting machine and build in carton, creating real parametric furniture.

moosgummi in kontext

this workshop project pretended to create a module that could be multiplied spacially in any directions, creating different forms that could be applied in architecture or design of diferent objects. the base module was a 90x90mm sauare, that should be cut and folded to find a base layout.


hort de les monges restoration project


this is a resume of a large restoration project made with 5 more people, of a house in Valencia’s orchard. a first analysis of the building, both hystorical and formal, was made. a graphic survey was laterd made including the whole building: façades, ground floor, first floor, interior elevations, ceilings tiles and details, constructive and material layouts and structural and material degradation and study. the finality was the complete analisys of the studied building and apply a specific restoration and applying a new programm for the building, in this case, a mix housingstudio, minimizing the original building.

encontro final degree project


the project was developed in the Faculdade de Arquitetura da UFMG, en Belo Horizonte, Brasil. it was a really special project located in the edge of the ‘morro das pedras’ favela and the formal city, in a transition environment and where the building should addapt to both realities. the project embraces the main building together with the spaces surrounding, creating a set of spaces to meet, make sport, dance, create, buy and sell... and also to create small spaces of commerce to improve the economy of the favela’s inhabitants. the result is a mixed cultural and education bulding , with glass and corten steel finishes integrated in an organic pattern. Infograply is made by Miguel Leal.
