A castle which is not a castle.
The Torre del Baró was built around 1904. It is located in one of the crest lines of the Collserola hills and, despite its residential origin, seems to be a fortification of historicist style. It is visible from much of the northeastern sector of Barcelona and has views over the city and the interior valleys of the metropolitan area.

El Valle Trenzado aims to recover the pedestrian’s traffic footprint. Since the channeling works that were made in the 70s definitely skewed Elche’s Canyon continuity. For years the citizens of the city went through this place hardly enjoying it.
This landform (which reaches 40 meters deep) gives the city a chance to travel in a few minutes to an area of high environmental quality.

The city of Petra, one of the seven wonders of the word, is the foremost historical and archeological city in the region, carved out of the red-rose rocks, as the capital of the Nabataeans. ‘Wadi Musa’ town situated at the entrance of the old city has unfortunately gone through periods of terrible urbanism and witnessed uncontrolled development sprawl for years. Within this context the brief was to design a gate that streamlines the movement of visitors in and out of Petra.The challenge was in designing at a location that is chaotic in its setting; due to the lack of planning, The haphazardly placed kiosks and the scattered buildings which consist of a hotel, a visitor’s center and a proposed museum, components that are rich however, not connected visually nor physically on site, All positioned Next to a neglected Wadi (valley) that lost its character.

The Talstation’s main features are characterized strongly by its geographic situation between the stream and the road. Driving south-west from Baiersbronn, the valley opens up and the Talstation is located on one of the elevated fields. Just like a stone or a piece of drift wood, the environment seems to have left its mark. Towards the south the building opens widely by using a deeply-placed post and beam facade forming a roofed terrace. The fully-glassed front of the structure offers a view of the amazing panorama of the valley, soon also of the WaldLoft Hotel which will be situated 220 metres higher, at 770 metres.
