Escalera de evacuación

15 January, 2018 - 09:06

Se aborda el proyecto no sólo para cumplir con los condicionantes de uso (evacuación ante caso de incendio) sino que se presta especial atención a su materialidad y diseño con el objetivo de establecer un diálogo con el edificio existente. Se pretende generar una relación arquitectónica simbiótica. El objetivo es intervenir de una manera contemporánea potenciando la presencia del patrimonio histórico.
El edificio presenta una masividad en su construcción que pertenece a su momento histórico. Fachadas de fábrica de ladrillo y cajas de mampostería conforman muros estructurales de 60cms de ancho que constituyen, además de su labor portante, la imagen y presencia del edificio. A través de los diferentes aparejos del ladrillo se consiguen detallar los encuentros estructurales y estéticos del edificio. Se trata de una construcción con evidente carácter de permanencia en el lugar.

Architectural Sketches – The Series

15 January, 2018 - 08:01

Architects sketch as a part of doing their job – at least all the good ones that I know. Right now, as a general rule, it would appear that depending on how old you are, you either sketch, use computer software, or some portion of both to work through your ideas. At 49-years-old, I seem to be in the camp that uses both but more times than not, I start with a roll of trace paper.

Since I seem to share a lot of process sketches on my Instagram feed, I thought it might be interesting to take some of those sketches and turn them into posts that elaborate on what I was thinking and review my intentions. This will be the first of these sorts of posts and as such, will be a bit longer.

Designed by Mexican architect Tatiana Bilbao (images by Rory Gardiner), the vacation complex in Monterrey has been dubbed Los Terrenos (Spanish for “The Terrains”). Each of three structures in the set are based primarily on one material: glass, earth or wood.
