My design process is an iteration of carefully listening, analyzing and communicating ideas full of accumulated experiences, current emotions and future desires, which in turn gives way to concepts that allow me to achieve meaningful and soulful results.

Kaira Looro Location : Tanaf Africa Kind: International competition Team: Ignacio Uribe,Jorge Herrera Tasks: Concept,Space design, 2d representation, Rendering and post production.

The task consisted in the design of a Multi-faith space, capable to host the majority of the religions practiced in Senegal. The understanding of sacredness as a collective act in this context was crucial to define the project since the building had to become a landmark to harbor a shared faith. Hence, for its adequate contextualization -necessary to integrate the new piece in a fragile environment such as Tanaf -this project intended to introduce the idea of ‘public space’ through the use of a big access ramp that faces the main road of the village. The roof emerges slightly from the context and becomes a landmark by the reinterpretation of the traditional local architecture. A multi-religious character apt to carry out different rites expresses the flexibility, and it is the roof and the lighting -and not the internal walls- that distinguish the rituals of the sacred place.

Local materials and techniques were used in the project, in order to take advantage of local skills and knowledge. The building consists of a clear structure of simple wooden columns and beams disposed in 3mx3m modules that support a covering made of palm. The roof is not only a landmark for worship but also serves as a shelter able to temporary give refuge to the community when necessary in case of natural disasters, providing a reservoir that collects and stores the water from the rainy season..

The building itself is a path that goes from a ‘gate’ –bustling and dynamic, the village- to a ‘place’ –silent and static, the interior- that allows the worship and invites to introspection. The ‘gate’, that consists in the ramp of the entrance, separates the mundane space from the sacred place in the interior of the building. The act of descending expresses the difference of space and directs the visitor towards the interior in a sort of procession. The ramp and the space under the columns act as a threshold between the mundane external world and the sacred interior space. On the other hand, a diagonal wall stresses the ‘path’ that transforms the corridor into a tunnel towards the sacred. The ‘path’ is a journey with diverse pauses defined by proportions of space, light, sounds and views. When the visitor gets into the sacred ‘place’, he/she has purified him/herself already and can get to the common room to pray or reflect. The visitor has been in contact with the sacred tree and now the space is calm, static and luminous, suitable to pray in community or alone.

The creation of a roof consisting of crests and troughs also determines what happens in the interior, since it brings light in as an insinuation of the rite that takes place. Therefore, the presence of the sacred tree, the wall facing towards Mecca, or the openings that bring the light, show where to develop one specific rite.

Into the eternity Location : Bogota Colombia Kind: MSc Degree Thesis Team: Ignacio Uribe,Alexandra Krivolapova Thesis advisor: Stefano Boeri, Saverio Pesapane Tasks: Research, concept, design development,space design, 3d modeling, 2d drawings, post production.

The main issues addressed by the architectural society in the last decades are mostly related to life and the living. However, rethinking and redefining peaceful spaces for the dead are keen questions for many cities; since the space to store the remains of our beloved ones is very reduced or almost nonexistent. The aim of this research was to analyze and rethink these places for the dead and to propose a solution that could reestablish the relationship between them and the city, as well as integrate many of the functions of the process -from the treatment of the body until the farewell ceremonies of different beliefs- without losing the mystical and sacred experience that these kind places can elicit in their users or viewers. This work is then a functional and conceptual reinterpretation of the cemetery, which keeps a strong relationship between the world of the living and the dead. 5

The cemetery is not just a place where people get buried. According to Foucalt, it is a “highly heterotopian” site in its enclosure of “temporal discontinuities”, which implies that the cemetery works as a device capable to break the continuity of time of the living and displays the temporary nature of the matter and the eternal nature of the soul. The heterotopic nature of the cemetery is emphasized in this project through the intention to evoke a sense of the “sublime”, proclaiming the cemetery’s importance by referring to a single individual. That is to say that the architecture is so enormous that it negates the scale of the human being. .

The cemetery acts as a historical record, and it could be seen as a museum of the dead that keeps in memory the history, chronology and biography of the community of which the cemetery belongs to. This museum approach is represented in a vertical continuation of space that shapes the gallery of the dead. The layout of the galleries dedicated to the columbarium and family tombs take indeed the morphology and appearance of the galleries of a museum; while the litracon-made walls allow a suggestive light to fill the interior space. 8


Chorus life Location : Bergamo Italy Kind: Professional work Team: JDP architects Milan (formerly AM Progetti) Tasks: ,3d modeling(Rhinoceros and Revit), 2d representation, post production, study and development of special architectural elements.

The complex is a trans-functional Campus composed of different functions as: Sport, Retail, Residential, Hotel and Wellness. The intervention aims to promote an urban regeneration model based on the soil re-use and the coexistence of the functions. As in the ancient city, the market, residence, theater, garden and street share the same space that becomes the place of social, informational and economic exchange. The proximity and the economy of the network will allow combining a low urban density (0.51) with a high relational and intergenerational one. Fluid public space is then integrated both physically and virtually.

The basic idea, which guided the urban design of the complex, was to arrange the functions along the perimeter, starting with a monumental consolidated statement to the north, proceeding with a dissolution and gradual penetration with more open design and finally immersing into the greenery to the south.

The volumes are arranged along the perimeter to outpace the urban character of the intervention by the creation of the traditional compact facade. On the contrary, the interior part of the site aims to renew the perception of the public space, first of all, by designing pedestrian oriented spaces, removing vehicles’ accessibility, and secondly, by the creation of a fluid connection between the diverse functions on different levels. The road level remains privileged, hosting priority functions which face the street.

The development of a fluid space allows also the simultaneous perception of alternative levels of access to other functions in a perceptual continuum that eliminates references to the morphology of the plot and facilitates the visual and physical contact between the different polarities of the complex.

New Sion station Location : Dahravi India Kind: Academic work Team: Ignacio Uribe,Nicolas Montonati Tasks: Concept,design development, Space design,2d representation, rendering and post production.

The station’s transformation responds to a private and public requirement that hasn’t been attended by the current station and could be fulfilled by an ambient transformation. Moreover, It is intended to develop a new path into the slum by the recovery and use of the soil where the actual station in located. This project has been designed as an urban center where different activities could take place, and as an instrument that allows people to gather and to create spaces and social exchanges. It is presented as a structure that develops itself as an open system, composed by associative modules and samples capable of adapt to different situations. Thus, this architecture is prone to grow, change and adapt.

Due to the intervention and the result of the redesign of the Sion Station of Dharavi, there are new 35000mq available. The distribution of this space corresponds to a study about the relationship of volume and void, trying to reconstruct a sequence of interconnected spaces that never repeat its configuration in an analogue mode.

Passing from the gigantic order of the public space (the slab) to an inner “landscape�, the ground floors introduce sanitary services and the most accessible functions to the public, meanwhile in the upper floors host archives and corporate offices. This system creates inner routes with suggestive character.

Cultural center Location : Bamiyan Afghanistan Kind: International competition Team: Ignacio Uribe, Alexey Strekalov,Anna Chistopolova,Alexandra Krivolapova, Julia Potekhina Tasks: Concept,Space design, 2d representation, 3d modeling

The novelty is just the remembrance of something that has been forgotten, left behind. The project goes into the analysis of traditional architecture, its forms, materials, typologies, and relation to topography, in order to take them as natural answers to this unique atmosphere. Therefore, the innovation comes from the critical revision of the Afghan culture uses of domestic architecture and the importance of the Bamiyan Buda Cliffs, the Cultural Center combines traditional approach with contemporary elements and modern use of the space that respects all the time the existent elements of the landscape, culture and people needs. The rough exterior which act as a shell provide an immemorial shelter for the proper activities of the museum, contrasting with contemporary and “soft� interior areas, that interiorize the landscape in deliberate apertures, creating frames to activate the exterior scenery. 17


The natural topography of the plot was used as a performative field, which created different levels where several volumes are set on. The project tries to take advantage of the original slope establishing a system of stairs, courtyards, ramps and terraces that define exterior spaces in a three-dimensional sequence along the project. These terraces are open and search a distant relation with the surrounding landscape: a space to contemplate; the reward after the path from the entrance. 18

Since mud brick was selected as the main material, some of its plastic possibilities were explored in the architectural language of the building, like arches or traditional fretworks on walls. These forms are not whims; they are strictly connected with all the problems that represent constructing in here and have been solved with these forms. The landscape was inspired by ornament motives of the Afghan traditional art. It is a system of slightly variable levels, with some shadowed spaces, seats and areas for open exhibitions. Its design allows the development of a future construction within the designed complex.

The resulting spaces have some characteristics given by the disposition of the volumes and path, like shaded courtyards that act as threshold among internal spaces, and the performance hall, which takes advantage of the different levels of the plot.

Considering the bright light of the sun from this place, some strategic variations of light levels were introduced in the architectural design, transforming the interiors into complex spaces with a strong spiritual sense.

Factory renovation Location : Yekaterinburg Russia Kind: International competition Team: Ignacio Uribe, Alexey Strekalov, Robert Dobrowolski,Alexandra Krivolapova, Julia Potekhina Tasks: Concept, 3d modeling,2d representation.

The transformation project of the industrial buildings in the center of the Russian city Yekaterinburg was designed for the competition launched by the city’s administration, whose aim was to develop the neighborhood, to make it become a significant place for the city due to its strategic location and cultural value. The main design goal was to preserve the historical character of the industrial buildings and to achieve the unity of their architectural design. To achieve this, the original brick facades were restored, and new elements such as staircases, entrances, and additional floors were designed in one style and were aimed to highlight the potential of the historic buildings. The new additional structure above the buildings is a light glass structure, which delicately completes the architectural image of the buildings. Composed by two glass slabs slightly moved from each other, provides dynamics to the whole composition.

The developed complex territory is bordered by the literary quarter, a significant historical part of the city, whose fame derives from the mansions of Ural’s writers and poets that work like literary museums nowadays, and that face one of the most picturesque and crowded parts of the city embankment. The project had two main aims: to integrate the isolated city area into the urban fabric, and to preserve the historical character of industrial buildings that are relevant to the heritage of the core of the industrial city.

In order to preserve the character of the industrial buildings and to identify their potential, the interiors were adapted to a loft-kind space. All the load-bearing structures of the existing buildings were preserved and due to removing of non-bearing interior partitions, new apartments were designed with flexible open-floor plans, high ceilings and bright spacious rooms with large windows.

Generic Loft

The main advantage of the new apartments is their view to the waterfront and to a quiet and cozy courtyard, with a landscape solution that provides playgrounds and diverse recreational spaces.

The attention given to the context and interaction with the existing city was a fundamental design principle, aiming for a tight integration between the pieces and the revitalization that an intervention in the area can reverberate on its surroundings. Moreover, the recovery of this area needed to integrate the preexisting parts of the city, the precious weave of the urban fabric is already present in Lange Haven and Hoogstraat with the project area of Buitenhavenweg. Thus, the intent of this project was to recreate and integrate a succession of living spaces, hoping that this could improve the quality of life while respecting a sustainable technological development coherent with its context.

The main aim of this intervention is the search for order in the urban design, which surpasses the simple geometric structure in order to accommodate and give room to a system of relations, which make possible a high quality life. To achieve this, the project includes: - Riverside, where tertiary activities are an expression of the urban activity. - Residential internal gardens, protected from the most frenetic part of the quarter, designed for the health of the inhabitants who will enjoy these calm areas. - Public buildings, on strategic parts of the plot and connected to other areas by secondary lanes. -As in the case of medieval cities, the connections will begin at the river’s edge, traverse the residential areas and then suddenly will open to expose the public building which will become the heart of the development.
