A factory for the parts of plastic miniature model.
The guy deals plastic miniature models of detailed airplanes, battleships and so on, and spends all day here, designing models, decomposing the designed model into hundreds of parts, carving metal molds and molding resin to make thousands of those.

A volume of simple and emphatic architecture, which reinterprets the anonymous architecture of the coastal valleys in the center of Chile. It poses itself above the soft tree-lined areas, peeking gently with its facades of wood and tones that highlight the luminosity of the place. The body melts down as one with the geography and projects the lines of trees upon his facades. Employs sustainable technologies, creating a favorable mood for work and the production of quality olive oil.

The inauguration for the new headquarters and production complex of Pratic, a company owned by the Orioli brothers and specialized in the design and manufacture of curtain systems, has recently taken place in Fagagna a town located in the province of Udine, in Northern Italy. The complex placed adjacent to the provincial highway that leads from Udine to Spilimbergo, was designed and built by GEZA (architects Stefano Gri and Piero Zucchi). The intervention is composed principally of: a main volume, a parallelepiped with a surface of approximately 10,000 m2 that houses the main productive core; a second volume of about 1000 m2 placed adjacent to the first but rotated 15 degrees in order to align with the highway is dedicated to the offices; a parking lot for 100 cars; a loading dock and service area of approximately 2,700 m2; a garden space of about 33,000 m2. In addition spaces dedicated to communication, showrooms, break rooms and open communal and private areas are housed in the buildings in order to accommodate the daily activities of the workers. The complex, anchored in the industrial zone of the town, is also intimately tied to the surrounding agricultural landscape through different aspects of its design; thus ultimately forming part of the mountain scape characteristic of the region.

Historically, Metalsa began as a family-owned company, founded by Guillermo Zambrano Gutierrez in November 1956, previously named Manufacturas Metalicas Monterrey. The company later entered the automotive industry through a partnership with American firm A. O. Smith and began manufacturing chassis frames for heavy trucks and pickups in the late 60’s. The official name of Metalsa was adopted in the late 70’s and operations started in Apodaca. Metalsa’s successes allowed them to acquire the commercial vehicles business from Tower Automotive expanding to Virginia, and later building facilities in China, Japan and India. Today the company boasts several major automotive corporations as their clients, including Ford and Toyota.

In the estate of La Grajera, west of the city of Logroño and only a few yards from the Camino de Santiago, we find the Institutional Winery of La Grajera.
The Project seeks an equilibrium between the need to announce the presence of the winery and the desire to merge with the landscape: the volumes follow the deformations of the land and are interrupted, moving towards the forest, remaining close to its border and thus respecting the existing vegetation.

On the east of the site, the elevated road joint between Osaka and Kyoto where the JR Tokaido line is crossing from the west. It is to be seen a widely spreading switchyard on the same direction of the elevated road. The vicinity of the site is an eclectic gathering from small to medium size of factories, warehouses, trade facilities and housings forming which is the mixed landscape of architectural typologies.
