DROP HOUSING PROTOTYPES

  DROP housing prototypes are a result of a research program integrated our team, SHO ARQ, MODULTEC (manufacturer), BOMAImpasa (structural design) and Atres80 (MEP design) for the development of expandable industrialized housing units based on passive house models. DROP is a series of adaptive low-cost/high performance prototypes that intend to be an alternative to the brick-based/high cost/low performance plague that has colonized the Iberic territory in the last decades as well as a solution for single units construction in remote territories where traditional construction is not a reasonable option. DROP technology emerges from our conviction that it is now the moment for a real industrial revolution on the construction miscalled industry and searches to maximize program flexibility and growth potential and minimize energy waste and ecological footprint in the low density residential areas.

CAP VARIATIONS

CAP is a research project developed with MODULTEC that explores the potential of 3d modular industrialized construction to assume geometric variations from the by default transport format while keeping transport efficiency.

The research takes the day care health centre type developed by the catalan health department as a case study and sets a range of hypothesis to test geometric variation from the by default special transport box constraints. Those hypothesis intend to cover a wide range of casuistry: from adaptation to non regular boundaries to reconfiguration of the patios layout in order to increase circulation alternatives and affect external and internal shape while keeping always the same ratio program/transport units.

The results of that research prove that geometric versatility of MODULTEC 3d modular construction system depends mainly on design ability and very often typological and urban regulation constraints are imply bigger geometric restrictions that construction system.

SURGICAL II

Surgical interventions for urban transformation II moves the research field from 22@ to Barceloneta's waterfront to explore the core of the controversy derived from the on-growing global short term population in Barcelona. Again coordinated by Jordi Mansilla and Toni Montes at the Barcelona Architecture Centre (BAC) and integrated by students from Clemson, Texas A&M, CEDIM (Monterrey) and 6 different Japan Universities, the studio proposes an open reflection on the market concept as a paradigm of public space and an opportunity to establish new links between permanent and floating population. Francesc Muñoz, Carles Muro, Roger Paez, Jorge Perea are the lecturers on this second iteration.

SURGICAL I

Surgical interventions for urban transformation I is a design studio program developed  with students from Clemson University and Texas A&M students at the Barcelona Architecture Centre-directed by Miguel Roldán- The program is proposed and coordinated by Jordi Mansilla and Toni Montes. Francesc Muñoz, Teresa Galí, Roger Paez and Alejandro Quintilla participate in the program as lecturers. This program explores opportunities for deep transformation in the old industrial  Poble Nou district of Barcelona, that the city is promoting as the new technological district renamed 22@. The studio methodology uses operative mapping techniques to detect opportunities to insert in the old and under used fabric low scale public space and public facilities to  generate larger scale transformations and revitalisation. This strategy is proposed as an alternative to the massive intervention that is taking place, that implies large investment for minor revitalisation.  The results of this last double edition have been recently published.

UPF/BETA BUILDING PUBLIC SPACE: project completed

MIBA's new public space will be the access plaza to the BETA building and the connection between the UPF urban Campus and the Ciutadella park. The BETA building is the new headquarters for the Pasqual Maragall Foundation for Research in Alzheimer’s. This projects makes part of the arch-land series (Maó ferry terminal-Lara Ríos house-UPF green area-BETA building plaza) and is the first of the series where we used parametric design tools from the initial stage.
