  2. 2. Institute CLEMSON UNIVERSITY, Barcelona Studio Course Graduate Studio, Fall 2011 Instructor Mansilla-Ortoneda, Jordi Project New ecologies for the 21st century Eixample, Surgical interventions for urban transformation Culture Path is an experience consisting of multiple layers. Each ring: that of programs, a larger pedestrian space, and vegetation make up a new public space that is both indoors and out. It consists of 9 main programs: a market with attached community garden and cooking school, a large exhibition space to host various artists, a library, an auditorium, a soccer field, music and dance studios, as well as a day-care. The initial programs weredecided based on a loudness factor, as our initial concept surrounded the idea of loud traffic and providing a way to escape from it, into a more intimate and public space. Facades were built to further this concept and protect the programs. This further developed into anew ring: vegetation. Now, the people of 22@ are provided with easy-access parking, wider pedestrian areas inside and outside of the blocks, as well as new green spaces.
  3. 3. Site Site is surrounded by streets, Almogavers, Pallars, Avila and Badajoz. This 4 blocks have a lot of warehouses and empty space which is considered as a new public space. Using those available space and widened pedestrian from cleaning street parking, a new public space is created. According to the factors, programs of cultural center are located. The level of loudness of each street is deciding the thickness of facade of programs and also giving the solution for the new forms such as ramps and stairs. Lastly, while windows and Factors for Location of Programs doors are protected from loudness using vegetation, the location of windows 1.

PATI DEL RUI PERDUT Mercat de la Boqueria, Barcelona, SpainPLAYGROUND of the LOST RIVER Institute CLEMSON UNIVERSITY Course Graduate Studio, Fall 2010Instructor Montilla, Armando Project Space of deformation for Mercat de la Boqueria, Barcelona, Spain Cooperation project with Strang, ChristopherThe parking lot behind the Boqueria market– an ‘urban void’ – will be transformed intothe “Pati del riu perdut” (The Lost RiverPlayground); a public plaza that is relaxingbut also raises environmental awareness andunites the community.The colors in the plaza will be playful and reflectthe vibrancy of urban life.The water element in the plaza reminds us ofthe ancient river that once flowed through thecity but is now covered. Water will be collectedat surface level, filtered, used as grey waterand will add a relaxing element to the park. ElPati, thus, encourages responsible ecologicalstewardship and brings attention to thecommunity’s water use.A pedestrian connection between theneighborhood and the Boqueria willbe established by pushing the parkingunderground. The community will now gatherin this open and relaxing area.
  13. 13. Market was established in 1835. And, the city was planned to construct “Plaza del trabajo” but it was never realized. The Gardunya plaza continues to be an empty void in the midst of a vibrant city. It houses a parking lot, that does not contribute to the beauty of the city, but suggests a clash between modern necessities and environmentalLa Boqueria Market Site contradictions. Left side of the market Middle of the market Right side of the marketDesign processMarket Design concept is making urban playzone for local people with water consciousness. This will create leisure and fun in themiddle of the city and give relief from the crowds, stress, your daily routine, and your daily problems. The urban playzone will presentamphibious activities - JUMP, SLEEP, SLIDE, ROLL, SIT, LAY DOWN - to the people. The shape is from waves of water. And, the coloris from fruits of market and Norman Foster’s camp nou project. The water collected from the surrounding roofs will be filtered. The waterwill then go through another filter before being utilized for grey water uses in the market. There are a few types of filters including rapidsand filtration, lava filtration and various membrane technologies such as reverse osmosis.

The Serpentine Observatory Institute CLEMSON UNIVERSITY Course Graduate Studio, Fall 2010Instructor Montilla, Armando Project Space of Mystification and Construction of the architectural Pavillion Cooperation project with Strang, Christopher“The Serpentine Observatory,” located in Kensington Gardens, retains many structural subtleties and ephemeral essencesof Ito’s 2002 Serpentine Pavilion, while the finished structure exudes an entirely different use, structure, sensation, andappearance. The function of the Observatory is to harmonize the participant with nature. It functions as a bird and wildlifeobservatory where people can ascend the winding tower to get closer to the canopies of the trees for better views ofbirds and wildlife or to get a closer look at the sunrises, sunsets, and stars during the night. The serpentine tower providesperpetually changing areas of light and dark, shadow and shade, from the jutting platforms and altering reflections from theglass core as the sun rises and sets each day. In the end, The serpentine is derived, added, subtracted, and solved toformulate an equally useful and aesthetic addition to Kensington Gardens: The Serpentine Observatory.
