Site visit to EMBT foundation, Barcelona, Spain.
Date: September 23rd
Location: Carrer de la Pau, 10, 08002 Barcelona

For our History and Building Technology seminars we visited the EMBT foundation, renown architecture firm founded by Enric Miralles and Benedetta Tagliabue. We had a honor to visit their exhibition space and working area where are showing their finished and on-going projects. The most projects they are designing right now are parametric design, which are attractive to me. At the same time, unlike some of firms using digital models to improve their projects, they build physical models for every projects they are working on. This is a really interesting firm that is worth all architecture students to stop by and even take internship here.

Site Visit to Ricardo Bofill Architecture Workshop – Renovated beer factory
Date: October 9th

The firm was founded by well-known architect, Ricardo Bofill, in 1963. The office is locating in a renovated beer factory, as Ricardo kept most of the original building and added some features both for additional function and aesthetics. It was an incredible experience to see the beauty of historical renovation. Another work which also astonished me is their hand drawings, since they made their hand drawing, idea, floor plan, section and elevation, for most of their projects, even skyscraper.

Progress after mid-term review
I did some improvements, based on the recommendations the invited professor and Quim gave me during the mid-term review. I have further my idea of free plan, creating dialog between history and future. Right now, I am focusing on how to make it more functional and the structure details.
