Salcedo Social Center in Galicia, Spain by Santos y Mera Arquitectos S.L.P.

Thursday, November 24th, 2016

Article source: Santos – Mera arquitectos

In a cluttered environment we propose a refuge, a wood in small forest cabin, a palisade that filters views but at the same time makes it very open, very permeable to the nearby environment and especially to the square and the adjacent green area a haven. The interior volume is modeled generating small courtyards, transitional spaces where shown the interior wood skin that only comes out in the big hole that crosses the fence to look out over the square giving continuity to the large multipurpose space, allowing incorporate outer space for outdoor activities. One of the courtyards, become larger and more permeable, and it serves like a space for access to the building “patín” mode of traditional houses in the area. The simplicity of volume, color and texture must be enough to convert the center into a small local and an urban reference, giving a friendly and easily recognizable image.

The Roman Walls of Lugo Elevator in Galicia, Spain by Pernas Varela Arquitectos

Sunday, September 18th, 2016

Article source: Pernas Varela Arquitectos


The Roman Walls of Lugo, built between the late third century and early fourth century A.D, is the only complete roman fortification that is preserved in the world, and therefore, one of the most important monument of the Iberian Peninsula. The Roman Wall and the Historic Center of the walled enclosure have the highest level of patrimonial protection in Galicia and was declared in November 2000 a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. The plot of the intervention is located inside the walls, next to the entrance to the public gardens of the council building. The plot has two main entrances, one from the inner round of the wall [still incomplete] by the West, and the second, through the Romans Lane, which communicates with San Marcos street, on the South. In the target area, the wall has a lower height than in the rest of its route. The Romans Lane, which connects the gardens with San Marcos street, serves the Council buildings and the National Insurance Institute, and has a secondary character in the old town scene. On the street there is already a communications tower of strong vertical component and great height. Also, the views from the street are altered by the distant vision of the party wall of a building located in the outer round. On the east side, from the parapet of the wall and inside the garden of the council, the large sized magnolias existing work as a screen minimizing the visual impact of the new element.

La Muñeca in Galicia, Spain by Oglo

Allariz International Garden Festival 2011

1st Jury Prize

Whatever culture fashion is part of, whatever time and place it refers to, its essence finds its roots in the characteristics of the human body. Only the being’s dimensions and proportions matter. Its peculiarities, its flaws, its disadvantages are sublimed by creation and become the assets, the basis, the nourishing roots of fashion. They structure its path, define its substance, and guide its function. Static and still when unworn, fashion transforms itself; it evolves in space once inhabited. It also shelters life. It takes over, welcomes and protects it. Once wrapped around the being, fashion, lifeless until then, comes alive.
