Fall 2015 – Design Studio First Phase Review

This week, our Fall 2015 students had their 1st Phase Design Studio presentations. In the studios lead by Miguel Roldán and Quim Rosell, students are developing individual projects situated in the various buildings of La Escocesa’s post-industrial grounds. With different programs per building, each student has adopted singular design approaches. Sharing their thoughts and process in an open discussion helps them reflect and grow collectively. We are looking forward to the evolution each project will show on the next phase revision!

amadeu lecture

La Escocesa Factory – Amadeu Santacana, Architect
Design Studio Lecture Series – 09/14/2015

Amadeu Santacana is principal in NUG, architectural practice located in Barcelona. In 2009 NUG won a competition to create a new Fabriques de Creació de Barcelona in the industrial complex of La Escocesa. He explains La Escocesa´s complex and layered history and urban context; concluding in the explanation of NUG’s emphasis in the importance of the actions that take place in the space over the visuals by approaching the project through 5 main strategies: 1. Bringing Bolivia Ave through la Escocesa. 2. Disconnect and free the industrial envelope from its program. 3. Making narrative cuts through the building. 4. Inserting systems that activate but not define the space.
