Huellas Artes interprets the human footprint as an artistic trail in Santiago city. It is a cultural engine fueled by the passing flow of citizens and visitors from around the Bellas Artes metro station, a highly cultural area of downtown Santiago. It is an architectural intervention that proposes a new use scene in a fully unclosed outdoor space.

Rebuilt after the last war in a style reflecting the local Ile de France architecture, though on a much smaller scale than the original, the Château de Rentilly lost its historical value and its significant relationship with its remarkable location. This project has sought to restore both aspects by encasing the building in a second skin of pleated, mirror polished stainless steel which reflects and diffracts the image of the park, acting as a kind of sound box. The interior has been stripped down and simultaneously opened up on both opposite sides, one to the jardin à la française, the other to the english landscape park, emphasising the concept of immersion in the natural world.

The Reforma Diana Tower is a state of the art building resulting from the special conditions of the terrain located at Av. Paseo de la Reforma no. 412, near the Diana Cazadora sculpture.
The limitations of this terrain are a maximum height of 40 levels over Reforma and a restricted façade of only 16 meters. Other limitation was the need to respect three back terrace levels to allow the natural light to reach Tokio Street. The building has a total construction surface of 33,800 square meters and a height of 140 metes over the street level.

For the first time since the fall of communism,the Baia Mare’s city government is trying to revitalize the city’s identity, unique in Europe because of the \”The Baia Mare Art School of Painting – (founded in 1896)\” by creating workshops for artists, creative camps, and exhibition spaces. Inspired by this initiative the project that I propose represents a new monument that will historically contribute to this city – a new landmark, daring and poetic, which rebirths the spirit of “The Baia Mare Art School of Painting”. I wish that this city will become a magnet for plastic artists.

Architecture is always feeding on images concealed in our memory, ideas that at some point become clear and unexpectedly mark the outset of a project. Perhaps for this reason the echoes of the Hispano-Muslim culture still present in Córdoba have unconsciously meant more than a marginal note in our project. In contrast to the homogeneity that globalized civilization seems to impose in all contexts, the Contemporary Art Center aims to interpret a different Western character, overcoming the clichés of that common expression.

The extension of the Visual Arts School of Lima supposes a challenge in different issues:
The relationship between old and new. The actual building is an architectural landmark, a very good example of neo-colonial architecture of the 1930’s The addition should be respectful of the existing building but we considered it should also be a testimony for XXIst century architecture in Lima.

WORKac’s new space for the CMA organizes all activity around a large central gallery for exhibitions and events. The other art-making spaces were conceived of as classic ‘‘white boxes.’’ Surrounding and connecting these spaces is a band of color and activity in a gradient from red to indigo, providing visual and physical relief and creating a transition between the other spaces.
