Paulina Hurtado: Narrows Pavilion

Paulina Hurtado: Narrows Pavilion // "Narrows pavilion is a social platform that works as a living organism introducing the subject into a portal that addresses space as the expression of scenery.  The pavilion explores the idea of implied functionality. Something that might happen but doesn’t have a fixed definition. For instance, it is a space for exhibitions, but it is not a museum; it is a space with scenographic features for performances, but it is not a theater; it is a space for dinning and social encounter, but it is not a cafe nor a restaurant."

Built by Associative Data: No. 5

Built by Associative Data: No. 5 // "The design is driven by parametric studies, taking as parameters view orientations, solar radiation, wind infiltration, and building program, all in relation to the site’s difference in levels. The proposed optimizations resolve all the faced parameters and heighten the building’s performance. No. 5’s site lies at one of the busiest corners in the area, making the building very present and visible from the street level, hence the proposal’s pixelated massing.

The idea is to have the interior circulation mimic a similar movement that a pool ball would take within the boundaries of this pure form of a cube as seen on the exterior of the structure."

Silvia Lucchetta: Linear Landscapes // "Tourism and its understandings have most certainly been a delicate matter of debate in countries such as Spain, which has been ranking among the top destinations for several years already. Not only does tourism shape the economy of the place but it also affects the way locals live and the way the same place evolves. It is a complex phenomenon that varies according to many external factors and cannot be understood in one simple way."

Georgia Pogas: A Spectacular Spectacle is Spectacular

Georgia Pogas: A Spectacular Spectacle is Spectacular // "Resilience is defined as a way to accommodate risk. In terms of a skate park, resiliency tends to be lacking, as it is rendered useless until touched by a skater. As soon as a skater touches an object in the site, it immediately becomes essential to the skater’s functionality. Without the skater, the park is reduced to a field of follies. To the bystander or the spectator, a skate park is difficult to navigate, therefore, it is deemed weak in nature. "
