It is a Project that research the relation between architecture and water. We discuss the concept of a private swimming pool with a single house in a low density program in the city. It is a rethinking, in a sustainable way of life, to transform the way of promoting the east side of Spain. Save this picture!© David FrutosDissolving the limits of the city. The city is transformed into architecture; the streets become ramps and water. Architecture twists and turns seeking nature, it looks towards the mountains of Orihuela, and it pokes out above its limitations. It is difficult to differentiate its limits, it is a city but also a landscape, it is a private space but at the same time it takes over a public space of the street. The built parts are reflected and fragmented through the use of reflex glass in the steel carpentries. Save this picture!© David FrutosThree personalities and one environment formally, these are three independent volumes fused into one project. Each volume has its own personality and privacy. The meeting points between the parts are made by horizontal and vertical stairs, a “Y” bridge and double heights favoring expected and unexpected relationships. Semi-private and private places for meeting are intertwined as in life itself.Save this picture!© David FrutosA pool within the house. There is a pool along the entrance, it is the heart of the project, and it creates an opening and makes the space vibrate in its environment. It swims across the house, crosses the “Y” bridge, illuminates and moistens house’s architecture. Water redefines the house, it isn’t a house with a pool, it is a house and it is a pool. The reflections, brightness and shades are the material used for building the interior space. The pool is not only something essential in the house, but it is the house.Save this picture!© David FrutosThe bridge is an entrance. The entrance is a bridge that crosses the pool. The steel and glass bridge serves to connect the layouts of the house. The “Y” shape is divided in a horizontal element and another inclined one (stairs). It is an undetermined connection that makes and undoes the ground floor plan. The transitions in the interior float over the orange pool, which is an acid, sweet and wet pleasure. Save this picture!© David FrutosThe plot is a volume. We didn’t want the work of the project to be based on square meters; we worked with atmospheres since we considered the plot as a volume. Throughout the whole process we sought surroundings, environments, experiences. Coming in and out, waking up in the morning, night time, eating, bathing… occurs inside and outside, between the built area and the exterior. This has been one of the greatest achievements.Save this picture!© David FrutosStructural and constructive research. The process was long and exciting. Floating, tightening, leaning, connecting… these are words that came up when thinking about how to resolve the technicalities. The shape exists but one must find it in those processes, it is unknown but it is there. The inflection point is the multidisciplinary work. The result is an approach that tries to determine a program and its relationship with the city.Save this picture!Courtesy of Joaquín Alvado BañónProject gallerySee allShow lessDaegu Gosan Library Competition Winning Proposal / Gorka BlasArticlesA.M.

Johnson and team ready to open 2013-2014 season

first_imgAfter defeating the Japanese National team 3-0 last week, Wisconsin women’s hockey coach Mark Johnson said an exhibition game proved an important experience for UW freshmen and players returning from injury.The Badgers faced off in an exhibition game last Monday against the Japanese, who took on a series of opponents while in the Midwest, including Minnesota. During his weekly press conference Monday, Johnson said this was a good opportunity for his freshmen players.“Any time you get an opportunity to play, you have a chance to grow. Certainly for our younger players, an opportunity to go on the ice, play live competition with announcers, with the referees, with the fans, try to get the jitters and nerves out,” Johnson said.He added getting an exhibition game in before the season started was also nice so redshirt junior Brittany Ammerman could get a chance to skate and get back into the swing of things.  Ammerman was only able to play in the first three games last year before an injury ended her season.To start the regular season, UW will hit the road to face Minnesota State University, Mankato in a Friday-Saturday series. Mankato will have played three games by this Friday, making Johnson glad his players have the exhibition under their belt.The rest of the WCHA will also prove to be tough this season, according to Johnson, who said he feels it might be beneficial to start the season off against some big names.“It’s obviously early in the season, it’ll be a good opportunity for our freshmen to get their feet wet,” Johnson said.  “It’s going to be a very competitive, very balanced league this season, so it’ll be a good opportunity for our young players to see some league competition and an opportunity to grow at the same time.”The coach said he plans on using the Mankato series to get a feel for what works and what doesn’t, trying out different line combinations, power play combinations and just seeing what the overall team chemistry is like.“If we like what we see we’ll probably stick with what we see.  If not, you’re going to make adjustments as you go,” Johnson said.  “Early in the season we try to feel things out, and see what kind of chemistry certain lines have and combinations and coach as we go.”Following the series with MSU, the Badgers will take on conference rival and back-to-back NCAA champion Minnesota Golden Gophers. A meeting with the Gophers always comes with extra anticipation and Johnson is glad to be taking them on early in the season.“I think [the Minnesota series] is in a great spot, especially with my younger players,” Johnson said.  “You know you’re always as a coach looking for opportunities to see how your players will react in situations.”Impact of the Winter OlympicsWith the 2014 Olympics in February, national team practice is beginning, which means any college hockey player named to an Olympic team will be away from her collegiate teammates this season. Wisconsin incoming freshman Annie Pankowski will miss her first season after earning a spot on the U.S. Olympic team.Johnson said U.S. and Canadian players who will be playing in the Olympics will be gone from their conferences this entire season, which will in turn level the playing field by having some of the powerhouses absent.The teams that are most impacted by the Olympics are teams that have players from countries like Sweden or Finland, as is the case with North Dakota, Johnson said.“If you’re from North Dakota, you have a couple kids coming in and out of your lineup over the course of the season, that becomes a little bit more challenging than for us or maybe Minnesota, who would have kids on this team that will be gone for the whole year,” Johnson said. “It certainly impacts different schools throughout the country.”last_img read more
