El local destinado a Clínica Dental está situado en la transitada Avenida Primo de Rivera de la ciudad de A Coruña. Nos encontramos con un local de unos 170 m2 en planta baja con una forma en "L" trapezoidal y con una única fachada abierta a la calle.

El programa se distribuye a lo largo de un pasillo formado por unas geometrías curvas y transparentes para conseguir sensaciones de amplitud, confort y obtener el máximo de luz natural en el interior de la clínica. Este eje longitudinal articula la parte pública de la clínica, donde los pacientes tendrán acceso, formada por la sala de espera, la recepción y los boxes  con el área privada destinada al trabajo personal de los odontólogos y también al descanso de los trabajadores.

La sala de espera se ubica en el acceso desde la calle y cerca de la recepción. Se diseña como un espacio de transición. Se utiliza un pavimento hidráulico y en las paredes se colocan lamas de madera para contrarrestar con calidez. También se ubica una lámina de agua a modo de fuente para conseguir una adecuada atmosfera.

Los tres boxes se plantean con materiales sanitarios que faciliten la perfecta higiene para los tratamientos de odontología o cirugía que se requieran. Las divisiones están formadas por vidrios para obtener el máximo de luz natural y unas cortinas correderas que  facilitan el grado de privacidad necesario.

A medida que caminamos a lo largo del local se distribuye el área privada que gestiona el despacho principal, áreas de descanso, el trabajo de taller y almacén.  Esta área se aleja de la entrada y salida de pacientes, para buscar la tranquilidad y comodidad de sus trabajadores, ya sea para descansar o para buscar la concentración en su trabajo.

En este lugar nos encontramos con una serie de antiguas instalaciones de carácter fabril, estructuras reconocibles, con identidad propia y fuertemente arraigadas en la memoria de la ciudad, por lo que la propuesta presentada parte de la necesidad de conservar estos elementos arquitectónicos como parte del patrimonio industrial de ciudad y de este modo permitir a las generaciones futuras una total comprensión  de la trama urbana. Por lo que la actuación propuesta se basa en la reutilización de las estructuras existentes, manteniendo su esencia original y dotándolas de unos nuevos usos.

Debido a la particular ubicación de estas instalaciones, englobadas dentro de un eje de conexión entre distintos centros dedicados al arte, creación y divulgación, así como la ausencia de espacios públicos de entidad donde el ciudadano sea el protagonista y teniendo en cuenta el análisis de su entorno, nos permiten llegar a la definición de una serie de objetivos generales que proporcionan el soporte necesario a nuestra propuesta. Así entendidas las intenciones requeridas para estos espacios, podríamos interpretar las preposiciones “en”, “desde” y 'para' relacionándolas con nuestra idea del siguiente modo:

-'EN' la ciudad:

Situado en un enclave característico de la ciudad, se identificará rápidamente el “Bulevar de las Artes” identificado por la unión entre los centros e instituciones adyacentes con nuestro centro de producción CIDEA, distinguido como un referente del diseño, la creatividad y el ingenio.

-'PARA' la ciudad:

Entendemos todo el complejo como un mecanismo que interrelaciona creación, intercambio y aprendizaje en un mismo entorno.

Además, debemos recordar que también deseamos reconvertir este espacio en un área de esparcimiento y disfrute, donde cobran protagonismo los ciudadanos y turistas. Para ello, también se han estudiado las diferentes zonas de estancia en cuanto a las actividades a desarrollar en cada una de ellas.

La idea se fundamenta en los principios de la Bauhaus, escuela de diseño, arte y arquitectura, basada en la artesanía y trabajo manual donde artistas y artesanos se unen a través de una misma forma de trabajo.

-'DESDE' la ciudad:

Entendido como una vinculación directa con la divulgación e intercambio, donde las ideas en las cuales se trabaja se llegan a ejecutar y es posible su exportación.

En este lugar atopámonos con una serie de antigas instalacións de carácter fabril, estruturas recoñecibles, con identidade propia e fortemente enraizadas na memoria da cidade, polo que a proposta presentada parte da necesidade de conservar estes elementos arquitectónicos como parte do patrimonio industrial da cidade e de este modo permitir ás xeracións futuras unha total comprensión da trama urbana. Polo tanto a actuación proposta basado na reutilización das estruturas existentes, mantendo a súa esencia orixinal e dotándoas de uns novos usos.

Debido á particular ubicación de estas instalación, englobadas dentro de un eixe de conexión entre os distintos centros adicados ó arte, á creación e á divulgación, así como tamén a ausencia de espacios públicos de entidade onde o cidadán sexa o protagonista e tendo en conta

El local destinado a Clínica Dental está situado en la transitada Calle Juan Flórez de la ciudad de A Coruña. Nos encontramos con un local de unos 150 m2 muy estrecho y alargado, con dos fachadas al exterior únicamente; una de ellas abierta a la calle, y la posterior a un patio interior común.

Nos planteamos la idea de distribuir el local en dos áreas: la pública, donde los pacientes tendrán acceso a todas las áreas destinadas a odontología y cirugía; por otro lado, el área privada destinada al trabajo personal de los odontólogos y también al descanso de los trabajadores. Por lo tanto, el mostrador de recepción es el encargado de distribuir el área pública, siendo capaz de organizar el hall de entrada junto con la sala de espera, así como dos box y la zona de esterilización. Todo ello iluminado con luz natural sin dejar de lado las vistas de la Calle Juan Flórez. A medida que caminamos a lo largo del local, y vinculado a la fachada trasera, se distribuye la área privada que gestiona el despacho principal, áreas de descanso y el trabajo de taller. Este área se aleja de la entrada y salida de pacientes, para buscar la tranquilidad y comodidad de sus trabajadores, ya sea para descansar o para buscar la concentración en su trabajo.

Debido a las condiciones del local caracterizado por longitud, su estrechez y su poca iluminación natural, uno de los principales materiales utilizado es vidrio. Mediante su uso como elemento de distribución, nos permite aprovechar la luz natural al máximo, pero sin evitar la privacidad en determinados espacios que este tipo de locales requiere.

Toda la distribución de la clínica gira en torno a la idea de elementos verticales, ya sea para el revestimiento o la decoración de paramentos. Determinados espacios de la clínica están revestidos con listones de madera manteniendo la idea de verticalidad, que además incorporan iluminación en su parte trasera, lo que proporciona una iluminación muy agradable y característica. Así como el mostrador de entrada, considerado un elemento distribuidor del espacio de entrada, está revestido con listones de las mismas características. Por otro lado, para garantizar la privacidad en las consultas, los elementos divisorios de vidrio disponen de una serie de listones serigrafiados, garantizando cierta opacidad pero permitiendo al mismo tiempo la iluminación de los espacios.

El proyecto de la Escuela de Danza tiene por objeto dar respuesta a toda aquella demanda social de formación en el ámbito de la danza, a través de una enseñanza no reglada de multiples especialidades dirigida a personas de todas las edades.

Debido a la citada demanda social, se cede un local de origen municipal para el desarrollo del proyecto, ubicado bajo los jardines Blas de Otero en el ámbito del conjunto residencial de la Torre de Atotxa de Donostia-San Sebastián. Por tanto, estará situado frente a la entrada principal del futuro Centro Cultural Tabakalera, creando un lugar de referencia para la creación artística.

El nuevo edificio dispone de una superficie total construida de 1070 m2 y tendrá una única fachada exterior, situada frente a la futura plaza prevista como ampliación del espacio ocupado por el actual paso subterráneo y futuro acceso a las instalaciones de Tabakalera. El resto de las fachadas son interiores y colindantes con el Depósito Municipal de vehículos, así como con el Hogar del Jubilado de Atotxa y un futuro espacio ocupado como aparcamiento de bicicletas. El edificio se desarrolla en una única planta donde albergará cuatro amplias salas de danza y una de calentamiento entre otras dependencias, que estarán dedicadas única y exclusivamente a la danza ampliando así la oferta a modalidades como el popular baile vasco.

 La construcción de la Escuela de Danza  está ligada, tanto en el tiempo como en el hecho de compartir elementos arquitectónicos, a la intervención prevista en el futuro espacio público, que habrá de mejorar las actuales condiciones del paso subterráneo bajo el ferrocarril y, a su vez, facilitar un nuevo acceso al propio edificio de Tabakalera, en su actual planta sótano.

El nuevo espacio público será el lazo de unión entre dos edificios donde el arte y la cultura serán las bases primordiales en una ciudad que camina hacia la cultura en sus múltiples vertientes.

BUILT SURFACE: 3.996 m²

Having thoroughly analyzed the area, we decided to preserve the function of market, reducing the number of market stalls, but also seems appropriate to give the building a series of rooms designed to a social and cultural use, linking them directly with the market. Therefore, the proposal also has an auditorium in the basement, some enterprise incubators on the first floor and dynamic restoration areas on the first floor that support the marketing program. Also on the first floor is an area of ​​training available to the council. Our proposal for this area would be to create a space dedicated to the culture of the kitchen, fully linked with the market, where leading chefs could teach people of the county or other visitors or where they can make even cooking shows. And thanks to the creation of the conference areas in the basement, these uses might work on a large scale, being a large claim and not just for the building and the area, but also for Portugalete and the province. Therefore, we want to provide the city council with these proposals:

• Provide the Village with facilities that it doesn’t have up to now.

• Recover the use of the market, but on a smaller scale.

• Ensure that this building will become a place of leisure and culture for the city council.

• Enhance and add value to the area thanks to this intervention.

Furthermore, the more important concepts in our project for this building and surroundings are:

• Improve the performance of the property with new vertical cores.

• The introduction of a new floor (second floor) to enrich the use of enterprise incubators.

• Try to provide this market with an underground car park.

• Raise the height of the square to the height of ground floor to get a better connection between public space and the market, even can be unified them at certain times, like weekend market stalls…

BUILDER: ______

BUDGET: 22.000.000 €

BUILT SURFACE: 24.152 m2

The building is conceived as a volumetrically closed block slightly introverted, getting, with a perforated metal enclosure, sufficient permeability to light, so that the building is perceived both internally and externally, very light. The volume is very cleaning and compact in the exterior, so this building has a strong presence in the area, working as a benchmark in this parcel, and Pontevedra.  We got the integration, using the type of closed block, present in the vicinity, and on the other hand, using flat and curved shapes in some points of the new court.

This form is extracted from the traces that we are given in the plot, and bending the joints, is precisely to achieve a dialogue between the two buildings.

The proposed closure is formed by perforated Corten steel. The perforation is not always equal, the circles have  different sizes depending on the area which is located across the sheet, as the need for natural light to enter this space and the privacy to the same.

The plate is combined with a second glass skin, which will be practicable in some parts, for ventilation and circulation spaces.

This double skin provides the perfect combination for a very continuous building on the outside but allows ventilation and light to enter.

The building despite having a clean volumetry, the same in all floors , if there is a point where the volumes are "holing" to get very interesting terraces in each of the plants.

The building is joined to the adjacent building through a footbridge. This footbridge is made by the same material of the exterior skin of the court.

The project tries to resolve the urban problems in the area, offering some interesting public spaces, designing one building with a clear operation and integrated with the public facilities of the city, proposing a building that is an icon to Ourense.

Looking the plot in its current state and its immediate surroundings it is detected a big urban problem (problems with the pedestrian circulations) and the disconnection of public spaces and facilities that are planned for the area.

It is essential to resolve this circulation, to get a continuous pedestrian path along the river, and the circulation along the river across the bridge that arrives to the city center.

It is proposed the enlargement of the step sections that are developed on the north side of the plot, setting a way that goes to the space created for the proposed public square, which is integrated into the building through the introduction of a common language inside the same.

The project consists of two volumes of 6 meter width, linked to each other by a vertical communications core. These volumes are characterized by being integrate inside the place and solve the requirements for light control and solar incidence.

Volume 1: soberer, with straight lines.  This volume is integrated with the language of neighboring dwellings.

Volume 2: it becomes more organic, with curved facades with colored glass slats, which gets integrated into the elevation that from the river, boosting green space areas, being the piece that closes the buildings elevations, participating with the changing color of the trees in the riverside walk, which takes place on the riverbank.

The project will become a new benchmark for the city, an icon, located in one of the main entrances to the city, which equates the formal dynamism of the city that is offered by the Millennium Bridge, presenting a new image of Ourense to all people who want to visit this city and its citizens.

With differentiation of the building in two volumes, it is generated a very light and clear operation floor, locating, in its higher floors, in one of its volumes, all the office units: volume 1, while in the volume 2, it is located all landscape offices and specific rooms units. The volumes are 6 meters wide, so we can use a concrete structure, simple and inexpensive. The choice of using a double skin façade allows us a light, ventilation and sound control.

La Real Fábrica de Tabacos de la ciudad de A Coruña ocupa un lugar prominente en la historia del tabaco español. Para su instalación se optó por ocupar el edificio que a finales del siglo XVIII servía como los correos marítimos, un lugar estratégico para la conexión con la Habana y Buenos Aires.

Un primer paso en este proyecto fue una profunda reflexión sobre aquellos aspectos relacionados con el paisaje circundante y con la implicación del edificio en el conjunto. Establecemos las pautas de intentar asumir la integración del edificio en un sistema sostenible y dotado de sensibilidad medioambiental.

En consecuencia se podría sintetizar el proceso de reflexión arquitectónica y urbana en las siguientes direcciones:

-Emplazamiento y relación con su entorno

-Carácter arquitectónico del edificio

La Fábrica de Tabacos se organiza de manera simétrica. El edificio se configura entorno a cuatro patios de amplias dimensiones. Un potente cuerpo edificado central articula la axialidad del edificio y en su parte hacia el acceso por la Palloza se contiene el acceso monumental. Esta simetría nos es muy útil a la hora de encajar en nuestra propuesta el programa de necesidades requerido para la rehabilitación de la fábrica en infraestructuras judiciales. Trabajamos también con los patios de dos maneras distintas. Los dos patios delanteros pasan a ser el vestíbulo principal del edificio, cubiertos por un gran lucernario, y unificándose en planta baja. Mientras que en los traseros realizamos una reinterpretación de estas estancias que existen en la actualidad ocupándolos pero de una manera mucho más razonable, donde ubicaremos las secciones. Nunca se ocupan en su totalidad sino que se deja siempre una franja perimetral que permite la iluminación y ventilación de las estancias, dejando que este elemento respire. Entorno a estos patios tenemos las grandes naves longitudinales que componen el edificio, con planta baja, primera y segunda. Estas naves se rematan con una cubierta a dos aguas, que ha sufrido modificaciones con el tiempo siendo perforada puntualmente con unos pequeños lucernarios.

La dimensión del futuro edificio, consecuencia de su programa de necesidades, así como su relación con su emplazamiento geográfico concreto, conducen de forma inevitable a la concepción de una volumetría de destacada presencia, con la expresa voluntad de afirmarse en el entorno, caracterizando su destacada función mediante una potente caracterización formal. En este sentido, se ha prestado especial atención a la creación de un volumen en la nave central de la fábrica que se eleva y se convierte en un hito dentro de la ciudad. Este cuerpo hace una reinterpretación del "skyline" de cubiertas existente pero con un lenguaje moderno. Este volumen nos aporta la posibilidad de acoger un enorme espacio de oportunidad, que puede vincularse tanto con las nuevas infraestructuras judiciales como con el espacio que solicita el pliego de uso por determinar. Por otro lado, este volumen nos permite la introducción de luz natural en el edificio, con especial impacto en los espacios de relación, ya que al diseñar un gran lucernario que se abre sobre una sucesión de huecos interiores, permitiendo la iluminación en toda la altura del edificio en estas estancias de uso común. Este cuerpo no llega hasta la fachada principal, sino que se queda retrasado, con la consecuente aparición de una terraza que se vuelca a las vistas del puerto de A Coruña. Este hecho nace de la clara intención de darle mayor protagonismo a la fachada de acceso de modo que la vista del reloj con el volumen en un segundo plano, pudiendo estar este iluminado, dotará, sin duda alguna de una teatralidad que convertirá la fábrica en un punto de referencia dentro de la arquitectura de A Coruña.

BUDGET: ______

BUILT SURFACE: 9.689,90 m2

The proposed location for the new sports facilities in the municipality of Gorliz is part of the current sports area Uresarantze completing the soccer fields, tennis and athletics which exist nowadays. The parcel is part of a landscape dominated by a strong topography which eventually forms a depression starring stepped platforms in order to accommodate sporting uses. A woodland consisting mainly of pines and oaks is the landscape where are this sports complex. The location of the proposed building reflects the desire to keep as a reference, the longitudinal axis that exists in the sports hall, now embodied by a walking tour of the football field and stairs by saving different platforms in North direction.

The access of the building and its center of gravity is located in this north-south axis, and from this center it is distributed in a fan shape. This movement to divide the building into three main volumes, the central axis would correspond to the campus and would place the main entrances and vertical communications, a second volume located on the east is where would be located mainly swimming pools, spas, locker rooms, fitness area and outdoor solarium, and a third volume located on the west is where the front wall would stand, changing rooms and the paddle. The building has two entrances, the first one, located across the street Uresarantze, new pedestrian access would be construct, due to the proximity of existing public parking on the road and the proximity of a stop public transport.

This access would be an alternative to currently existing access in the lower and middle area of the complex, taking the opportunity to enter from the upper platform through a path in which the wavy geometry of the roof allows us to frame the landscape. The second, located on the level of the artificial football field and is produced by the movement on the ground in a "fan-shaped" allows to harbor the interior pedestrian paths and the necessary access for service vehicles.

This building is designed to be built in two phases, a first in which we could build the access volume, vertical communications and administration, and the volume located on the east that would house the pool, spa areas, locker rooms and gym; a second phase in which it would build the building located on the west and would house the pelota court with their changing rooms, and two paddle courts. Outside, two tennis courts would be relocated, initially uncovered, but with the skill to do it so easily in the future, due to the topography where is located the project.

BUILT SURFACE: 500 m2

Redes is a small fishing village of the early twentieth century, situated on the northern edge of the estuary of Ares located in the Galician Rias Altas. This town was awarded by the College of Architects in the International Day of Architecture 2009 for preserving the original design in the planning. The town is also known as the "Galician Venice" because of the proximity of the buildings to the sea.

On the street called Rua Nova, included in a town extension of the forties, are located two houses, numbers 42 and 44 which currently include the functions of a habitat and architectural firm.

The project involves the rehabilitation and extension of two existing houses which didn´t preserve the traditional urban configuration of Redes, due to rehabilitation suffered in the 80's. To recover the traditional architecture of the fishing village by a contemporary method, the project was based on a reinterpretation, using materials such as Iroko wood, laminated wood beams, tiles or white mortar.

The houses are arranged symmetrically on the original stone-built wall. These are divided into three levels, the first level accessed from the seafront facade at the Rua Nova into the main hall, two rooms and a bathroom. On the first floor, a dining room and kitchen linked to a back garden and with a gallery overlooking the estuary. On the second floor two bedrooms and two bathrooms.

The stairs are located in the midle of the house and are designed as a sculpture, changing from the ground floor to the second. On the ground floor they are made of solid oak with a large closet on the inside, and on the first floor they are metal, very light and painted white allowing transparency.

Taking the steps across the Rua Nova, you come across a low wall of granite called Porto Radeiro, partly the property of the houses. Pulling a rope you can reach a Dorna, a Galician traditional vessel, which is the main transport system through the estuarys.

Furnishing includes the fireplace designed by Miguel Mila for DAE, the bathroom suites which are a selection of David Chipperfield for Roca, Menorquine orange canvas chairs and lounge sofas designed by Diaz y Diaz Architects, arranged in several modules to create a central table or a large bed, and a living space around the chimney.

Una primera reflexión, a escala de ciudad, permite identificar un eje virtual que enlaza en línea recta la prolongación de la Avda. Meridiana con el solar de la Biblioteca, atravesando el Parc de la Ciutadella para finalizar en la propia Estació de França. Este eje virtual acabará por convertirse en uno de los principales recorridos de la estructura de espacios libres del sector y el punto para acceder al gran espacio interior de las arcadas de la estación.

La propuesta parte de la necesidad de mantener el actual espacio público formado por la denominada "plaza de carruajes" en tanto que espacio de acceso a las instalaciones de la Universidad Pompeu Fabra y espacio-rótula del sistema de espacios libres formado por la entrega de la Avda. Marqués de Argentera con el Passeig de Circumval.lació y el Parc de la Ciutadella. El mantenimiento de este espacio libre, si bien dificulta la visión directa de la Biblioteca desde Marqués de Argentera, proporciona, a su vez, un importante espacio de acceso y de relación que permite potenciar su "rol" como punto de atracción urbana del sector.

Todos estos argumentos-objetivo condicionan la formalización arquitectónica del edificio que presenta una fachada de carácter organicista hacia el Parque, utilizando sus desplazamientos en planta para colocar terrazas como elementos de transición entre espacio interior y exterior, mientras que la fachada sur, encarada a la Estación, se defina mediante dos superficies planas que adoptan un carácter de neutralidad frente a la potencia de la arquitectura de la propia Estación.

La perforación central abierta en el edificio, así como la teatralidad provocada por la confluencia de alineaciones curvilíneas, responde a la voluntad de resaltar este punto neurálgico, facilitando a su vez la visión directa de la zona de los andenes de la Estación desde el Parque.

Finalmente, una rampa de gran desarrollo protagoniza y, en cierta manera "coloniza", el espacio público situado en la antigua "plaza de carruajes", dotándolo de estructura urbana y resolviendo los accesos peatonales a la primera planta de la Biblioteca.

The fish market is divided into two clear parts.

On the one hand a U shape volume which includes all the administrative and techniques rooms of the building. On the other hand a set of 5 volumes containing longitudinal modules exporters. Both pieces come together in the same architectural language by the same tectonic concrete base that involves the entire ground floor.

Concrete flat roofs and shield cover the corridors of fish market, providing natural light and a sustainability strategy.

These two parts differ in a remarkable way by treating of their covers, despite using the same material, the zinc, it has been applied with two different building systems. The U-piece, "The fish", is composed of three parts both on the cover and in its functional and spatial organization.

The five volumes, that contains the exporting modules, are communicate by lateral corridors with the "the fish".

The skyline of the building allows the integration of the environment.

The building is integrated in the environment with a clear volumetric conception.

This building is sealed to protect it against the weather conditions, but is related with the street by several white boxes that stand out from the volume of the building. These boxes are the public areas inside the building.

The court is organized around three courtyards, which become in the three courtrooms on the ground floor.

The entry of natural light is very controlled in the building.

The court has more privacy for the development of their activities because of being an introverted building.

The three courtrooms have natural light because of having the courtyards above them, so, although they are in the center of the building, they have natural light.

The courtyards are an interpretation of the Andalusia courtyard, allowing us to introduce nature into the building as their lungs.

On the skin of the building we propose a ventilated façade system with Ceramic brick as cladding. The characteristics of this material make it the most suitable for this place.

Rarely the outcome of an artistic expression is the result of a deep reflection on the condition of the object and its subsequent formalization and this is certainly one of them.

The condition of urban sculpture of the object forces an intense and detailed analysis of those characteristic of their environment in terms of use, volumes, realizing constructive and strategic and relative position.

The theme of this proposal, "Dialogues", is an abstraction of what we had made in the process of creation for this contest. Final the project allows us create shapes and textures, which materializes our personal contribution to the artistic achievement proposal by the contest.

Four slender figure, clad in Corten steel, dialogue between them forming with his powerful presence an "urban landmark". Vertical formalization of this sculpture seeks to reinforce its role as a visual reference from Sol Avenue.

Before the development of the project, the semi-natural conditions of the future park made us think about the type of treatment and appropriate management for a green area which serves as a focal point for a new urban development while verge of a great Forest Park .

The project is conceived as a park-transition between the urban public space (hard) and public space forest, trying to focus the intervention on the area closest to the urban area, the more distant we are from the urban area more limited will be the intervention, reducing it to the park paths.

After locating the main routes, these are understood as roots of the new Forest Park as a "leaf".

These paths are born in two gateways to the Park Forest, crossing the watercourse.

These routes take sinuous forms by concrete walls and stone walls, thus achieving better adaptation to the land surveying and permitting in same points of these routes appear to be areas and stretches of vegetation, and the creation spaces with square characteristics.

Places where the topography is flatter and permits it, identifying viewpoints and landmarks to enjoy the magnificent views of the mountains and remarkable visual connections.

The perimeter of the park or transition zone between these routes "roots" and the urban grid is solved by creating a platform-organically strip about 30m wide and situated at an elevation of the new city, in which install all equipment needs and services of an urban park of this size.

BUILT SURFACE: 30.000 m2

An initial study of the object of the competition prompted us to focus on three aspects during the architectural reflection process: 'urban location', 'architectural nature of the building' and 'the Tabakalera project as a future cultural centre dedicated to visual art'.

Currently, an underground walkway running under the railway lines links the Egia neighbourhood and the Cristina Enea city park to the rest of the city. The walkway has exits to the future EDIF platform over the North Station and Blas de Otero square. The project proposes the creation of a "loggia" on the northern side of the building, with the aim of creating a new urban square at basement level which would be multifunctional and partially covered and would rethink the entranceways to this underground walkway and link directly to the new mechanical access points and the 'main street' of the future ICCC.

This new area or loggia is a vital component of this project, since in recreational terms, it is the key to completing the 'tic-tac-toe' formation after which the project's slogan is named and which aims to link, in a hypothetical diagonal line passing through the building, all three 'counters' in the game: Cristina Enea park (and the Egia neighbourhood), Tabakalera and the area of the city centre located on the other side of the river. From the inside of the building, this diagonal line would also link the two main entrances to Tabakalera: the current entrance from Paseo del Duque de Mandas and the new one located on the 'main street' and courtyard on the north-western side (open down to basement level), which would provide access to the aforementioned 'loggia'.

In recognition of the architectural value and style of the building, the project establishes several strategies for maintaining original elements and highlighting the value of its most representative characteristics. We have striven at all times to maintain a high level of constructive cohesion, in order to minimise structural interventions in the building.

A new glass construction will rise over the central body of the building in search of new, alternative energy sources (photovoltaic plates), while at the same time reinforcing the symmetry of the design. This uppermost, most visible floor of the building will house public restaurants offering fantastic views of the capital, and at night, it will become a shining source of light, reminiscent of a huge urban lighthouse.

The building that now a days deals Caixa Galicia Foundation was rehabilitated in 2002, being previously the military government.

This rehabilitation kept the building´s structure, providing the building with the installations required for the new use.

It is a 5-storey building with an average area per floor of 500m2.

After analyzing of the routes and the spaces, we realized that the rooms that were not for exhibition were not used at all.

This project aims to activate those spaces and give the building a more attractive offer to the public.

The project includes a library, a bar and a net area.

The place where the project it's located is essential to develop the abstract form of the project.

On the parcel are located the ruins of a small chapel. The client wanted to transform the space between walls in a large open space attached to a server space consists on a small dining room and several bedrooms, keeping the existing chapel.

We proposed a space formed by a large grid bounded by a series of geometric points that were essential for us.

This grid is extended for the most open areas of the site forming a large diaphanous space.

The public could view the performances inside and outside the building.

The project comprises the ground floor and mezzanine, with the planned creation of three premises without specific use (functions dependant on the license granted) and three duplex apartments with direct access to the inner courtyard of the block, five floors with six dwellings per landing and two basement floors for parking.

As the building is located very near the Sagrada Familia within the 'Ensanche' district of Barcelona, the Calle Napols façade will aim to be a modern interpretation of the conditions inherent in the "Ensanche typology" projecting the dictates of the strict rules that are required in this area.

The façade achieves the regulatory requirements, such as a flat and symmetrical treatment, through the creation of vertical wooden slats with holes in the timber, reminiscent of "bar codes', all reaffirming the desired vertical composition.

The flatness of the facade, in this case and in line with what the local council allows, is justified since the split of the reference plane of the block (natural stone) with another plane at 45 cm (aluminium and glass flying plane). The differential treatment of the two planes reinforces the concept of dual flatness.

These metal panels have a horizontal opening system and are pierced with patterns designed to interact with the sun and create transparency.

The external cladding will feature fine materials such as pale grey quartzite to harmonise and reference the neighbouring typologies.

BUILT SURFACE: ------

Calella in recent years has experienced outstanding urban growth and significant changes in the configuration of its urban infrastructure by creating new scenarios of urban development likely to suit the future needs of the municipality which justified the creation of a new Plan of Urban Planning Municipal (POUM).

The new plan proposes, among other things, that the area called SUD-4, residential sector "Riera Capaspre Central" be transformed into urban land.

Furthermore, the area called SUD-6 sector "Industrial" of economic and industrial activities, can be transformed into urban land with the approval of this Urban Plan.

It is worth noting that the main objective of this project is to manage and develop this sector (SUD-6), which through expansion and urban location, has experienced growth in the main areas of industry , tertiary services and quality services . SUD-6 is the "industrial" sector of economic and industrial activities as defined in the new Municipal Urban Management Plan of Calella.

The creation of a new area for new business and industry, is intended to promote balanced growth, and encourage deseasonalisation of the municipality 's economy.

Another element involved in the development of this area and with SUD-4 is the opening of a new northern access point to the town, which will link the existing highway access road with the planned road by the POUM, located next to the Riera Capaspre.

In terms of the aims is to build a road network that is not solely dependent on the current N-II. The creation of this new access off the current access road to the C-32,will allow direct access to the Hotel district over the Riera Capaspre, which should become a new hub of the city.

The ground floor contains vehicular access to the car park, three premises, and the main entrance with pedestrian access to the car park, the vertical core to access the apartments and the access to the five offices that open out on to the interior patio.

Six apartments are planned on each of the next five floors of the building with three at the front and three at the rear, two one-bedroom flats and four two-bedroom flats. The flats that overlook the interior courtyard have balconies.

As the building is located very near the Sagrada Familia within the 'Ensanche' district of Barcelona, the Calle Mallorca façade will aim to be a modern interpretation of the conditions inherent in the "Ensanche typology" projecting the dictates of the strict rules that are required in this area.

BUILT SURFACE: 3.947,61 m2

The project is organized based on a homogeneous distribution of the typology designed over the entire site; this determines a uniform pattern of longitudinal and transversal routes that structure clearly and strongly the final image.

This pattern is split into two levels (ground floor and first floor) which are connected by a system of strategically arranged stairs. This will allow same level access to the dwellings located on the ground floor (50% of the total) and facilities of the other houses by means of both the stairs and elevators. Ten of the dwellings on the upper floor will be duplexes. The upper floor dwellings that can be accessed by elevator are all 'visitable". All apartments will have cross ventilation.

The proposed model allows for open spaces linked by different pedestrian routes reducing the cost of them. The planting of trees in the area close to the streets are located outside the boundary of the underground parking.

In terms of road and parking network, an underground car park system is proposed connecting the two sections, reducing the number of entrances and exits plus a parking area is proposed along the streets of Calle Balmes and Calle Florida.

At this stage, a car park of 36 spaces will be built, 4 of which are for disabled drivers. A storage area will also be set aside in the basement level, with a total of 18 storage rooms on the upper basement level with a further 18 in the lower basement plus a communal storage room.

BUDGET: -----

BUILT SURFACE: 400 m2

The first request put forward by the owner regarding the interior design project for the construction of the new restaurant LOIDI, with head chef Martin Berasategui, was the dual function the space needed to fulfill: for the first part of the day it needs to act as the buffet-restaurant for the hotel "Comtes de Barcelona", while the rest of the day, it needs to transform itself into a restaurant open to the public.

The need for a double purpose for the space led to the emergence of a second access, linked directly to the hotel, as well as the presence of a large multifunctional curved wood cabinet which ends up becoming the main protagonist of the space, taking on different forms depending on the needs of each moment and bringing together the breakfast buffet, reception, the bar and office, whilst also serving as a visual barrier to the entrance of the kitchen.

The space has been divided into three parts, which the artist Ruth Zaragoza has sequenced from three personal creations inspired by the leisurely ceremony a good meal, the third of which consists of a double glass wall filled with coffee filters, which serves to define the area for smoking customers.

Pictorial creations are supported by pale wooden furniture, which serve a dual role: host the set of cupboards, drawers and shelves necessary for the proper functioning of the dining room and hide the presence of a series of concrete pillars that are required for the structural join of the building.

The project has sought at all times to take full advantage of the presence of natural light that comes both from the large stained glass window that looks out on Calle Mallorca and through a skylight at the rear of the premises and that in turn allows you to contemplate the rear facade of the hotel located above the restaurant.

A first discusson on the urban problems of the Marina and its surroundings in the city of A Coruña allows us to isolate and analyze the main urban contradictions and deficiencies that this historical part of the city is currently suffering.

We should take into consideration that almost all the area in question is land reclaimed from the sea and therefore has been or is still subject to physical, functional or administrative problems, falling under the responsibility of different port authorities, all of which contribute to the current urban dysfunction.

Indeed, similar to other Marinas, the port in A Coruña has grown in a disorderly way as a kind of "anti-city" enclosed within itself like a fortress, and to some extent, ignored by citizens. The increase of car traffic and poor planning has contributed to the degradation of the public space next to the port.

Objectives of this proposal:

Transformation of the Marina's boat yard in to a "boulevard" space with a strong urban centrality.

Maximal integration of the port areas in to the range of public spaces of the city.

Rationalistation and redirection of traffic underground, reducing the amount of visible road surface.

Resizing and gentrification of the open space in front of the marina.

Presentation of " el muro del Parrote" as a generator of a new urban space that connects the maritime pedestrian area with the facilities of La Solana and the Old City.

Creation of "artificial topography" that, similar to the interventions of the "Land Art", allows characterization and framing of the urban landscape providing elevated zones that offer extraordinary views of the Marina and the estuary of Burgo.

This residential project develop units A4 and A5, B2 under the guidelines of the Modificación puntual del P.G.M. en el sector "Bon Salvador"

The arrangement and volumetry are determined by the current planning legislation.

The resultant plan is for two rectangular prisms with a lower section (PB +5) situated on the south side of the site. Unit A5 stands on a ground floor that occupies the entire site and will be given over to commercial use. The entire project has three basement floors for parking and storage, in order to comply with the minimum number of parking spaces required by the guideline and to be cost effective.

The project should have a uniform approach to volumetry, facade treatment, typologies and treatment of community spaces.

Regarding the typologies :

Each unit has a staircase with two lifts serving four apartments per floor in each stairway, with a functional distribution of two, three and four bedrooms, living/dining area, kitchen, terrace and two bathrooms, except for the two-bedroom units which only have one bathroom.

The south facing facades are open and permeable enough to take advantage of the sun, the views, the terraces and the private gardens, as each apartment features the living and dining rooms on this side. Filters such as shutters, louvers, awnings etc can control the exposure to sun.

BUILT SURFACE: 17.123,37 m2 + parking  7.883,15 m2

This residential project develops units B5, B2 under the guidelines of the la Modificación puntual del P.G.M in the "Bon Salvador" sector.

The volumetry of the buildings is orthogonal with a maximum variable height of GF +5 and GF +7 as dictated by the guidelines.

The arrangement and its volumetry are determined by the current planning legislation.

Therefore the end result has been three rectangular prisms of 5.18 m depth, 60 m. length and variable height. Project units B5 and B6 have two basement levels

dedicated to parking and storage and unit B2 has three basement levels, in order to comply with the minimum number of parking spaces required by the guidelines

and to reduce the cost of the foundation system.

Project units B5 and B6 have four sets of stairs with two apartments per floor in each stairway. In housing unit B6 the dwellings on each floor all have the same functional

pattern of living/dining area, kitchen, three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a terrace. In housing unit B5 the dwellings on the first, second and third floors also have the

same functional pattern as described above, while the fourth and fifth floors feature duplex apartments.

In housing unit B2 the apartments located on the first to fifth floors all have the same functional pattern, except one of the stairways which has three apartments per

landing. Two apartments and two Duplexes are located on the sixth floor of the same stairway.

The building will have a brick façade. The side elevation of the Block B2 is facing the street A, the main axes of the area , therefore is treated as one of the main façades.

A curved building, which descends from the pine forest adapting to the land. The hotel located in the PGA Golf de Catalunya was one of the projects selected for Comarcas de Girona Architecture awards.

Curving the building allows us to clearly distinguish the access points from the private areas of the hotel, all of which are blessed with being southwards facing. As one approaches the hotel, it appears as a changing element within the landscape. This adaptation to the topography happens both on the ground floor as on the sloping roof that generates a dynamic profile. The simple trick of grouping the galleries and the windows in pairs allows us to reduce the apparent size of the building. The entrance of light in to the hallways and the windows with diagonal views, allow us to regain a connection with the landscape.

In addition to these general decisions, the high quality finishes are a reference to the Mediterranean tradition of modernity. The white building of changeable configuration, which becomes the background of the landscape, the black stone in the skirtings giving us the effect of buoyancy, the wood in large sections to assess its touch of quality, and finally the glass in large panels that allow us to enjoy the landscape and golf course.

The lobby, the real heart of the building, occupies a section of each floor and connects them in a single four storey space. The journey up the lobby staircase is symbolic of the way the hotel connects its interior with the landscape.

BUILDER: GILBART CONSTRUCCIONES S.L.

BUDGET: 8.800.000 €

BUILT SURFACE: 12.100 m2


This project is to develop housing unit project 6 (Block H, I and J) of the ¨Cal Doctor¨area.

The volumetry of the buildings is rectangular and is three storeys (Ground Floor + 2), plus attic space, as dictated by law. Each block has a basement for both parking and storage.

The project has been treated with a uniform approach both in respect to volumetry, treatment of façade, typologies and the treatment of community spaces.

Block H has two staircases with two apartments per floor in each stairway, the apartments on the ground floor and first floor have the same functional layout; the second floor apartments share the same functional pattern, and all having attic spaces, are therefore counted as duplexes.

The J block is the same as the H block but with one extra stairway.

Block I has two staircases, one with two apartments per floor and the other (looking on to Calle Riera de la Coma Fosca) with three apartments per floor, except on the ground floor where one of the three dwellings has independent access. On the second floor, the three apartments are duplexes; one of them has the same functional setup as the duplexes on the other staircase in the same block, while the other two duplexes overlooking Calle Riera de la Coma Fosca have similar layouts.

The treatment of the ends of the blocks I and J has been taken into account, as they overlook Calle Riera de la Coma Fosca, one of the main streets of both the development and the municipality.

The southfacing facades are open and permeable enough to take advantage of the sun, the views, the terraces and the private gardens as each apartment features the living and dining rooms on this side.

BUDGET: 1.031.107,17 euros

BUILT SURFACE: 3.447,05m2

The building consists of three levels of underground car park, a ground floor (with mezzanine) and five floors with a facade width of 12 meters that corresponds with the majority most tenement buildings in Eixample.

On the Calle Provenza façade, the ground floor is subdivided in to a commercial premises and the access to the lobby and car park, while the ground floor facade in the interior courtyard block is occupied by two "Duplex" apartments with garden.

The typological solution on the fifth floor is composed differently from the rest of the façade, breaking the buildings symmetry with the emergence of a dwelling which seeks to emulate the expressive value of the formerly desirable "entresuelos" (typical ´half floors´ between the ground and first floors) whose desirability, thanks to the advent of elevator technology, has now been usurped by the better environmental conditions and exposure to sun of the upper levels.

The solution proposed for the Calle Provenza façade, an important location within the renowned Eixample district, is designed to interpret the patterns characteristic of this important architectural and urban area, using language more typical of contemporary architecture and featuring a flat and symmetrical treatment of the facade with the appearance of vertical glass elements that will give the façade with a degree of verticality, as required by the strict regulations in this sector of the city.

The rear façade opening on to the internal block courtyard has spacious balconies that allow you to enjoy the optimum orientation, while the placement of some coiled masonry to provide shade recovers the "galleries" of the typical internal courtyards of the Eixample.

A dual set of colours (grey and white) between the plane of the rear façade and the planes formed by the "screens" creates a dynamic and varied composition that gives identity to the building.

PROJECT: CONTEST OF IDEAS OF "DAS ARTS BUILDING" FOR THE UNIVERSITY OF VIGO

Collaborators: JON MONTERO MADARIAGA, LAGULA ARQUITECTOS S.L.

LOCATION: Parcel bounded by Pontevedra- campolongo local road  and the river Lérez.

BUILT SURFACE: 26.000 m2

The other day, travelling by train to Vigo, I saw a rock next to a tower block just outside of Pontevedra, near the island of the sculpture park It was a piece of granite that seemed to float, that large stone table with holes through which the water fell as it rained. I am not certain if I just imagined it.

This proposal considers the campus as a complex element linked and connected by the sculpture park. The new faculty, the Edificio das Artes, will extend the park across the other side of the river, emerging as the centre of the increased university campus.

Edificio das Artes will be built like a porch along the park boundary from start to end. Thus there will be dual access to the building: through the sculptures in the park, if coming from the rest of the campus, or from the proposed new road. The latter will be the official access, directly under a tower separating pedestrian and vehicular access. The two entrances convene inside the building in an exhibition hall, welcome facilities and concierge service.

The building is a large granite element elevated above a structure scheduled, an envelope of a vertebrate stone with a functional skeleton.

The space beneath this porch provides access from the park and exits from the workshops. The rock is continuous on the front and roof, but it is perforated systematically to illuminate units, interconnect floors, extend visual corridors and organise function rooms dependant on their light requirements.

The building is structured around these perforations by pattern of stripes alternating bands of movement with bands of installations.

And as in any crystallographic structure, its centre has the largest and most isotropic elements, with the smaller, more fragmented crystals parts ordered around the perimeter.

This project aims to augment one of the buildings of the hotel "Comtes de Barcelona", the building known as the "Center", from 74 rooms to 120, while providing it with new rooms and spaces for multiple uses. In addition to the expansion, the project also proposes a continuation of internal reforms in the "Center" to enable it to perform to a higher standard. The hotel will keep its four stars.

The most difficult and compromising decision has been the resolution of the external look of the building, whilst at the same time needing to resolve the join between the existing and new constructions so that both buildings can be understood as one whole, and to give them a modern and inviting look. All this, with the added difficulty of having to maintain a concurrent dialogue with both the lower older section of the existing building, which is heavy and solid, and the more recent, lighter glass section.

In the rear section, due to the complication of the party wall with the neighboring building, the alignment with neighboring building, and regularizing the facades of the inner 'apple' block, a patio of three meters wide by 12 meters long is proposed, leaving an area free from construction, allowing for proper ventilation of all rear rooms.

The first decision was to continue the green-skinned, all-glass look, to maintain the idea of being an extension.

The other decision to define a superimposed second skin was influenced by the following requirements: the need to establish a formal horizontal continuity with the older, stone section, of very strong lines and the need to place a filter to soften the effect of the glass inside the room.

The aim of this project is to develop the area currently occupied by two obsolete industrial complexes, in order to address the demand for new housing and to renovate the area, providing facilities and improving accessibility.

The facilities and the green spaces of the area also have the aim of improving the quality of the environment.

Access to the site has been resolved through the existing main roads (Avenida de Laureà Miró and calle Armenteres ) and a planned road(a variant of the N-340, located on the edge of the township) on the perimeter of the site. As a result, the connection between the main site roads and the external ones, allows for a high level of accessibility to the area from the surrounding municipalities and a good relationship with the town center.

The internal road system is based around a road perpendicular to the future iteration of the N-340. This road-avenue provides the frame work for the planned buildings and green spaces , linking the future variant of the N-340 with a new road connecting Calle de Anselmo Clavé with Avenida de Laureà Miró.

The parking spaces within the public zone have been allocated according to the predicted population density.

First of all, it is worth noting that the main objective of this project is to organise one of the areas that due to its extension and urban location has become one of the most important urban areas of the town of Alella.

Over time and due to the proximity of the different developments (Alella Parc, Nova Alella, The Sun, Mas Coll ,....), the area in question has become an empty urban site with considerable dimensions which in terms of accessibility, urban structure and systems of public spaces, has complicated the possibility of suitably managing the urban development of Alella.

It is important to recognize this planning as a great opportunity for the municipality to improve the connection between residential areas, substantially improving the quality of the environment that has hitherto been developed by reducing public spaces to roads.

This planning project will also respond to the need of social housing for a large proportion of Alella's population. The proposal includes the construction of social housing and units to rent to young people.

Included in these objectives is the development of private homes. These will provide mult-family housing taking the utmost advantage of the land.

The development of this sector could reduce the pressure to develop areas that are less suitable for urbanization.

Mejorar la accesibilidad viaria del sector con la abertura de un nuevo vial en sentido este-oeste que permita la conexión entre la Avenida del Mil.lenari y la calle de Antoni Borrell. Esta mejora se ponteciará con la ampliación prevista de la sección de la Avenida Jaume Rius i Fabra en el sector situado entre Can Casals y la finca Cal Gobernador.

Desde el punto de vista del paisaje urbano, una de las características del sector es su largo frente a la riera de la Coma Fosca. La ordenación propuesta reconoce este valor y lo refuerza con la previsión de un importante sistema público-peatonal que prevee un largo recorrido secuencial de áreas pavimentadas, parterres, aparcamientos, plazas y juegos infantiles con el objetivo de crear un importante eje cívico que conecte en sentido norte-sur este sector con el centro del casco urbano. Dos espacios dimensionados con el caracter de plaza o “espacio de encuentro y juegos infantiles” se situan estratégicamente de manera que tengan un papel de “puerta” y de “rótula” de este recorrido.

La ordenación prevee la creación de un gran espacio complementario destinado a “parque urbano” de caracter longitudinal que se situaría a media pendiente, y que en su recorrido de paseo-paisajístico, conectaría los dos ejes transversales previstos: el nuevo vial y el camino-escalera que, situado entre Cal Doctor y Can Casals, enlazaría el paseo de la Riera de la Coma Fosca con la calle de Antoni Borrell.

Un espacio destinado a “equipamento público” se situa al final del recorrido del espacio libre a media pendiente y con fachada a la calle de nueva creación.

Está previsto el uso residencial como uso dominante, y tipologías de viviendas plurifamiliares que mantengan las características de altura (PB+2) y ocupación propias del municipio de Alella.

La situación de los testeros de los edificios como fachadas reales a la via pública, les corvierte en protagonistas de la propia arquitectura de los edificios, facilitando las visuales transversales del vial-paseo hacia las zonas arboladas situadas en el interior del ámbito de este planeamiento.

Esta área esta atravesada por la Riera Pahissa y en ella se encuentran los mencionados antiguos establecimientos industriales de Bertrand y Serra y de Sola-Sert. Así mismo se encuentran en este ámbito el Colegio del Buen Salvador (Las Francesas), del que la correspondiente finca comprende una buena parte del área que se propone modificar.

En primer lugar la formación lineal continua de edificaciones con frente a la calle de Laureà Miró constituye una barrera del acceso al área. Unicamente hay dos pasos en una longitud del frente de más de 500 m., uno de acceso al grupo de viviendas Bertrand y el otro que da acceso a las instalaciones Sola-Sert.

En segundo lugar la Riera Pahissa refuerza la barrera del frente edificado en el tramo contiguo con esta. El resto de su recorrido, su rasante constituye también un impedimento para el acceso a este sector.

En los ámbitos de modificación y de remodelación, se encuentran también las edificaciones de las antiguas industrias Bertrand y Serra y Sola-Sert. En estos solares las actividades han estado fraccionadas y alquiladas para diversas actividades. Estas actividades han de ser claramente entendidas como una utilización transitoria de los edificios, pues la configuración de estos y su envejecimiento hacen económicamente inviable su adecuación dentro del marco de la vigente normativa urbanística para actividades industriales estables e indefinidas.

Cabe subrayar la presencia dentro del ámbito de la modificación, y en concreto dentro de la parcela del Colegio Buen Salvador de algunas áreas de arboleda y jardineria de interes de las que la ordenación habría de preveer su conservación.

El objetivo básico de la modificación es dar accesibilidad a esta área fundamentalmente desde la calle de Laureà Miró y también desde la carretera BV-2001 de manera que quede superada su marginalidad espacial.

The functional program is developed in a Building of 20 bedrooms, a living room, offices and waiting rooms, a dining room both for the inhabitants and for guests and an area for services such as a chapel and a library. The chapel and library are both located on two separate buildings.

The building has two floors: the top one dedicated solely to bedrooms (14) and offices with related facilities, and the rest of the units are located on the ground floor. This floor also includes a set of 6 bedrooms with shared facilities. Access between the two floors is through a linear staircase in a double room from which you access the main units of the building.

The main volume two storeys high is situated perpendicular to the road, with a good southeasterly facing aspect for the bedrooms and living rooms, placing the dining rooms and facilities in the rear of the building plus a single storey volume for access to the independent facilities.

The chapel and the library have been configured as single storey volumes, at either side of the entrance to the retirement home and near the main entrance of the building, to ensure that their usage does not compromise the functioning of normal activities of the private residence.

A private garden organized by the locations of shrubs between the building and the riverside forest generates different relationships with the bedrooms volume and the library.

The criteria followed in the project responds to the distribution of spaces and openings, as well as the treatment of facades (color and texture) and frames with a balanced composition.

One of the objectives of study was the "formalization of a new facade on Calle Horta, reformulating a new section of road to solve the urban landscape problem generated by the party wall of the building located at the corner of Calle de Coimbra and Calle de Horta.

The new building is proposed as a volume of elongated proportions giving maximum frontage to Calle Horta and the Parque de la Amistad and with a constant height to makes it appear as one unit. This height coincides with the height of the building at the corner of Calle Coimbra, to give a unified façade to the Calle Horta.

The topographical difficulties caused by the sloping Calle Horta have been resolved through the provision of a wide and uniform section of pavement, in accordance with the municipal precisions, and platform access to the housing section.

The different in levels between Calle Horta and the Parque de la Amistad allows for a car park formed of two underground levels.

The building in question contains a set of nine units assigned to the Centro de Educación Infantil (Early Childhood Education Centre) in accordance with the provisions of Decree 1004 of November 1991 relating to the two educational streams being taught at the centre.

The positioning of the building within the site took into account both functional criteria (proximity to the main building and other facilities, etc) and the high landscape values.

The functional layout of the building is spread across two floors, including three ground floor classrooms and other ancillary facilities required by law: a lobby, dining room, kitchen, multipurpose room, office and teachers´ room. The upper floor includes a total of six classrooms connected by a long corridor illuminated by natural light along one side. The floors are reached by a central staircase of two flights, opening laterally in to the garden area next to the entrance to the existing main hall, with a second external single-flight staircase, located on the end opposite to the main entrance.

The classrooms, each with an area of 51 m2 and a capacity for 25 students, are located on the south-west side of the building to ensure good exposure to sunlight; the corresponding toilets for each unit are also situated in the south-west section of the building, with direct access from the inside of each classroom, with the aim of ensuring maximum light and ventilation.

A portico structure is proposed in the entryway between the boiler room and the main entrance in order to increase its importance.

The playground has been situated just outside the classrooms, considered the best location, providing an area covered by a pergola in front of the dining area, thereby protecting it from an excessive amount of sunshine.

Taking into account provisions contained within the current Plan Especial de Ordenación Urbana de la Fachada al Mar, and the final information in terms of layout, levels and the finish of the side of the Cinturon Litoral, the project develops the solution used in the new Paseo Marítimo with the following characteristics and justifications which are composed of three parallel bands, with different dimensions and contents.

The first, a transition from the seaside of the Cinturón Litoral, will feature parking spaces, six meters wide on both sides of the road. The provision of trees, the type of pavement (paving stone and grass) and lighting, try to create a space that, while fulfilling a function has the effect of a garden or park.

The second, 18.80 m. wide, which will be called Paseo de Invierno, is a pedestrian path with a series of clusters of trees and squares, some connecting the pedestrian area with the Parque del Litoral and others with the bars and services. The pavement will be mostly earth, except the three main squares and access ramps to the beach which will be concrete.

The third and final strip, which will be called Paseo de Verano, 6.20 m wide, will run from the ramp's containment walls via three steps to the beach. The path will be made of Galician stone strips of different widths.

The beachfront bars are located on this lower walkway, on wooden platforms which lie lightly in the sand and also provide support for the shower services along the beach.

PROJECT: Central Park in Girona

Collaborators:

LOCATION: Parcel bounded by a Europe Square , Bisposivilla street, Santa Eugenia street.

DATE: July 1990

SPONSOR: Girona´s City Council

BUILDER: Huarte, S.A.

BUDGET: 1.250.038,07 €

BUILT SURFACE: 55.100 m2

This project is developed during the early important phase of the Plan Especial del Sistema de Espacios Libres del Sector "Parc Central", whose aim was to establish a procedure for reorganizing the new center of Girona.

The project covers the area west of the Renfe viaduct and the bus station. However, it does not include the parking areas between the bus station and the Cornellá Cafes building, nor the part of the "square" which is partially occupied by this building.

The park concept has been influenced by its very strong linear configuration, for the continuity of the longitudinal street and for the delimitation of the site by the train viaduct and the bus station.

The project will base its layout on the treatment of the wooded areas , avoiding the volumes built, except in singular points. This is a proposal that could be called "soft" for its primary use of vegetation as a configuration material of the park and could also be classified as "open" in the sense that it is a space that over the years will be progressively enriched with symbolic, artistic elements or facilities as happens in most city parks.

The Park also concurs with the basic structure determined by the Plan Especial, which articulates its relationship with the city. Within the project we define the actual Park zone, which stretches the longitudinal space between the Plaza de Europa and carretera Santa Eugenia, and the gardens facing the railway platform, which have more specific and complementary uses.

A garden stages fragments of nature in a bounded and measurable space, following its own inimitable rules. The flower pots are gardens in houses. The Plaza de la Constitución is a "flower pot" in the city. A cluster of trees, familiar to the region´s citizens is recreated in the Plaza. The wooded area grows on a horizontal plane of smooth consistency ideal for walks and large polyhedral volumes of concrete frame the perimeter. This tectonic envelope separates and protects the Plaza from its surrounding streets and defines the boundaries of this urban flower pot.

References and playful details have always been a constant in garden project design to accentuate their surreal and recreational character. Hence the presence of the "coin sculptures "(monedas ) of Girona in front of the Bank of Spain, the "carp heads" (carpas ) of Onyar River, "narcissistic flies" on the trees, the benches with "mohicans", the " megaphone with legs" and the "fountain of words" trickling water from the four rivers of the city.

The girl who symbolizes the Constitution was born in Girona on the day of declaration. For every decade that this date is commemorated, Francisco Lopez will sculpt a new figure of the same girl which will be placed next to the previous one.

The square extends over the roof of a car park and is paved in concrete with a grey-green diamond pattern.

Elevated elements are used both as stands and as ventilation chimneys.

Residential building with commercial premises and garage designed on a V shape, with the apex lying on Avenida de Sarrià at the meeting point of the extension of Calle Entenza, with one side aligned to Calle Dr.Fleming attemtping a spatial continuity, and the other side orthogonal to the existing block on the Calle Bori i Fontestà, facing the new adjacent urban park.

There is open space between the two wings of the building and the covered ground floor space at the apex; the remainder of the open space is private.

The composition of the volume and its urban image tries to reduce the impact of the building. The aim of the south-eastern end of the curved development is to become the orthogonal meeting point of the building with the Avenida Sarrià. Its positioning at the end of the calle Anglesola allows it to become an important nucleus of access for both cars and pedestrians, its height hinging between the two wings of the building.
