The NON PROGRAM PAVILION in Salobreña, Spain by Jesus Torres Garcia Architectes

Tuesday, October 7th, 2014

Article source: Jesus Torres Garcia Architectes Located in the South of Spain, close to the Mediterranean Sea, this small pavilion is surrounded by a remarkable landscape. The construction is defined by the relation between the form in the landscape and the contact of the structure on the field. The structure developed itself as a flower, as a natural fact, subscribing to Oscar Niemeyer’s approach. The whole project has been composed in the concept of “how to build in natural landscape?” and “what is the appropriate “weight” of a construction of this scale?” The non-program pavilion reaches the idea of disappearing in the landscape, attempting to erase the division between the intervention and the area. This concern of integration reaches the point where the landscape generates the architecture itself.

Polimen House in Biscay, Spain by COLL-BARREU ARQUITECTOS

Tuesday, September 16th, 2014

Article source: COLL-BARREU ARQUITECTOS

The building accommodates the central Public Safety services for a one million people urban area.

The ground on which the building sits was unstable. It was uncertain. It is the result of having quickly filled an open mine, with pits up to 50 m deep, which formed a cavernous place in its physical reality and its memory.

Article source: Coll-Barreu Arquitectos

A 32,5 meters high concrete tower for fire training.

A vertical decision. The tower at its plant intensifies the vertical folds. The folds of the concrete improve the vertical inertia, save material, make a more efficient structure. The tower is compressed also to not fill the air, as the “thin figures” of Giacometti.
