The challenge on the enlargement of this therapeutic centre -‘Riera Major’, located in a privileged site in the outskirts of Viladrau, Girona- was, on the one hand, to offer an improved relation between the patient and the surrounding nature through a reinterpretation of traditional constructions of the area. And on the other hand, to study the real needs of the centre in order to offer them a moderate, affordable solution.

The central building of the Corporate Campus Apeldoorn, designed by ADP Architects, is the conference centre. The whole building is set up to stimulate interaction and communication.
As working in a green environment is the main concept of the campus the landscape literally continues in to the entrance hall of the conference building, so nature and architecture melt together in the heart of the campus. Standing in the tall entrance hall you can see the restaurant, and the 25 conference rooms located on different floors. The restaurant, seating 750 people, is spread out over different levels gradually stepping down towards the forest outside.

Fragment à miracle’ project proposes the construction of an architectural landscape on old foundations, a simultaneous source of wonder and contemplation. The project is related to the context of the landscape’s coastline because of its differentiated permeability and its connection with the environment’s point of strength. Walks, south and north, are connected to the Old Street of Italy which, abandoning its original mission, becomes a witness of Veytaux Villeneuve pedestrian link.

In Venice, right to the entrance of the Giardini is the Spanish pavilion of the Biennial. Without prejudice to more thorough interventions later, the pavilion façade –and the pavilion as a whole for that matter- urgently needed to present an image befitting a country emerging strongly in the heart of Europe.

Information Point And Pavillion Acces To The Natural And Archeological Site Of “Els Turons De Les Tres Creus” (Montmeló-Montornés Del Vallés / Bcn) 2008-2012
In the natural setting of “Turons de les Tres Creus” , surrounded by a highly fragmented metropolitan area and linked to the archaeological site of “ Can Tacó “, arises the need to project some places previous an area with a great natural and archaeological interests. Give value set conditions, report the high heritage value of the site, and understand the genuineness of the mountain as a structural element of biodiversity in a highly fragmented and anthropized by man, are the main aims of this proposal.

The project has a very unique characteristic due its location. It is next to the Sports Palace, an arena frequently used for concerts, and the Velodromo Subway Station. Now the link between both spots is broken due a lack of pedestrian walkways, on the other hand there a high demand for parking space that is not satisfied by the parking offered by the Sport Palace.

Designed and built by the office of Oyler Wu Collaborative along with students of the Southern California Institute of Architecture, Stormcloud is the third project in a series of installations designed for SCI-ARC. The previous two installations, Netscape and Centerstage were designed for the school’s graduation ceremonies in 2011 and 2012 respectively. With SCI-Arc celebrating its 40th anniversary, the school commissioned the new pavilion for the after-party of its April 2013 gala.

Custore is an experimental project of exhibition pavilion that explores the areas of parametric architecture, used for the commercial market. In this project we had to deal not only with the aesthetic issues of computer-generated sculptural forms, but also with practical problems associated with the execution of the project inside a commercial building, and – most importantly – with the real clash of artistic forms and commercial market guidelines.

Our proposal for the Italian Pavilion at the Milan 2015 Expo is a light cage where the technical innovation is embedded within the structure: revolutionary glass columns sustain traditional slabs clad in marble. The building is simple and elegant in its structural system. Marble and glass are intertwined expressing the Italian architectural tradition of proportion and elegance.
Nature makes its way through the thin marble: tress are allowed to grow tall through holes in the slabs, recalling the central role of nature in a healthy feeding culture. These holes let the light from above reach the ground level where the covered plaza stands. The latter is trimmed by a thin water layer which creates small “islands” and a mirror-like surface. Water and shadow cool down the temperature of the plaza so offering a shelter from the sunny space before the circular pond at the end of the Cardo.

The competition rules required to design five buildings aligned along the Cardo that characterizes the entire masterplan EXPO 2015 until a large circular water lake. They consist in four two-storey linear buildings that contain various exhibition spaces, market and restaurant and the Italian Pavilion itself. This had to be develop in a square area of 57.5 meters side and a maximum height of 25 meters. The Palace was supposed to represent a symbolic message of representation of the beautiful country and we wanted to develop it according to the following concepts.
