Timber ribs assembly

The building that MAP Architects designed in Borneo dock, Amsterdam, resolves the envelopes in a very appropriate way at all scales.

If the tendency is to fill our architecture with all type of gadgets so as to self-produce the energy the users need for their wellbeing, we need to accept that either the building on its global formalisation, or some of the systems being used for its construction, need to integrate those productive gadgets.

Energetic productivity is a design requirement.

In the middle (C.004)

The facade proposal carried out has been developed along with Martí Codorniu Miret. We both presented ourselves jointly to the competition with this unique participation.We are located in Cardedeu, right in the natural park of Belloch. There, it is proposed to carry out a Logistics Headquarters for TESLA, where we find a zone of assembly and storage of cars, a showroom, offices and the rest area of the workers.

Urban Entropy (C.008)

The Poblenou neighbourhood is located a few metres from the Barcelona coast. A formerly working class district with a large capacity of people who are increasingly suffering from problems of gentrification. This is characterized by buildings of considerable height called Túpolev, which were built in the mid-twentieth century to accommodate humble families. The main problem with these buildings is that they border between the beach and the neighborhood and tourism is driving rents up exponentially. This is why this project aims to rebuild social housing at low cost.
