It is in this point of O Burgo, where, leisure, walking, industry and city become together, where the project is born. In an empty lot, unused, where an old factory with only its reinforced skeleton remaining, empty for years and that because of its volumetric and material qualities many potential different uses are envisioned.
A bad connection with the city is given for various reasons: the railway, lower on this point, is a breach on the ground stopping the pass and a direct relationship between both spaces; the other, the topographic difference of 4 meters from the factories and the boardwalk to the level of the unifamiliar houses at a city level, wrongly solved, or unsolved, with an empty space. Morevoer, it is detected that this houses that round the plot are looking towards the city instead of turning around and opening towards the coast, leaving the front without activities or views that potentiate the place.
On an urban scale, the project takes the empty lot with the factories as the final step of the way of the boardwalk just before it meeting the old Roman bridge connecting O Burgo with O Temple, two entities that given its closeness and functioning are understood as one. Following the logic of the boardwalk, in which activity pockets are added along the linear path of the coast dynamizing it botanical garden, sports fields, playgrounds… the proposal is to finish it with a cultural, creative, productive, and expositive equipment.
Continue the productive use of the factory, with a more society-focused use, filling the void for this type of equipment on a metropolitan scale. The limit between the houses and the factory is redefined, leaving a more domestic -but public- space in front of the houses, and a large scale U-shaped space gathering all the activity from the boardwalk. The opposite side to the factories and the new public space is a recent development of dwellings and supermarket with no interest and to which the project aligns without giving unnecessary gestures.
This way, two strategies are followed: connecting the three skeletons creating a path that puts the entire building functioning and it is possible to understand it as a whole like one machine; and make the most out of the structural capacity of the building, resulting in a system of hanging Fink beams and tubular steel profiles that leave the ground floor free and creates the path above, plus a bridge beam that connects the tower with the intermediate nave.
At the same time, it is about leaving the naves with a void that allows to recognize the original volume, for which the buildings takes different shapes in each nave respecting and adapting itself to the existing structure -both the concrete skeleton and the steel reinforcement- resulting in turns and height changes following the need of leaning on beams or go through porticos. The workshops are distributed for their function sculpture, photography, dark room, software, hardware… and the orientation and lighting needs or protection that adjust better to each.
The exterior volumes adopt the more independent uses such as video sets, auditorium, cafeteria and project room. The project takes place near my hometown, so I had seen the structures years before starting university and always thought they had potential to become something interesting. Of course, in the end it became much more complex than what I had in mind in the beginning. At first, the site was analyzed in relation to the town, the landscape and the infrastructure around and detected the problems to solve in a larger scale, which created a rough sketch of the solution itself.
So there was an initial approach in a more schematic way to which themes the design would take into account and where to set the limits of the intervention. These first ideas of where the project would go, had to be kept in mind to redirect the project when it was becoming less clear. As the project gained depth and detail it became essential to think in a constructive and structural way.
Getting to know the existing structure made possible to decide on hanging the intervention from the existing porticos, and the detail of how the steel Fink beams double to each side of the existing concrete beam to reduce importantly the diameter of the new structural profiles, and how the new beams would work with the existing; was decisive to the final design.
In the end, it turned out to work back and forth from the bigger to the smaller scale. Decisions like the structure created three new gardens on the ground floor and a large area of public space that were probably not expected in the beginning.
Buildings that relate to their surroundings work better for the city and its people. In this case, understanding how the boardwalk worked, and how the city was un connected to this empty space brought up new topics to the project that made it much richer and with more layers to manage. The drawings that end up being in the final presentation are actually the ones that served me to work on the project. Plan views reveal the relation between the different parts of the building and how they connect, while the sections allow for an understanding of the structure and the tension between the public space and the intervention.
Axonometric or perspective views helped to show the character of the project and its spatial three-dimensional qualities. The perspective views express ideas or concepts about how the space will be lived or how it is imagined without being necessarily accurate with what it would actually look like.
They show the main ideas of the project in a kind of simplified way to be more explicit. It also allows for the use of external references that have appeared throughout the project that make them a synthesis of how the project is.
The exterior view was needed to explain the spatial qualities of the public space in relation to the building and to make the geometries of the intervention understandable. The interior montage explains in a more abstract way the relation between the exposition room and the landscape surrounding. With the chosen perspectives, the project is explained in the connection between outside and inside in both directions, addressing the notion of limit between built and non built, landspace and building, or building as part of the landscape.
One of the initial questions of the project was about the extent of the intervention. After analyzing the urban fabric and the landscape the plot came to appear limited by the streets and the houses. However, the solutions the analysis proposes include a more explicit connection related to the water, the boardwalk and the railway which could for sure be explored further.
I understand colour as a way to express ideas, feelings or concepts. In this case, it became obvious from the beginning that to properly explain the intervention there should be a difference between what was already there and what was new.
The main decision was about the existing-proposal colours. Black, as historic ink maps; matched the idea of the existing.
Blue, brought from traditional Galician ceramics, made a reference to the cultural context and brought contrast and visibility to the proposal. Red, in small details, came from the existing steel reinforcements and provided a good tension with the rest of the drawings. In the end, the Black Blue Red colors seemed to be like the ones used in typical pens during school years. That is, the most natural way of representing. During the process of design there were many hand-drawn quick sketches in a project notebook where most of the final solutions appear.
As for the digital tools, all the drawings are vectorial, which means everything was drawn in CAD and appears in the presentation as it was drawn. Apart from that here was an initial 3D modelling of the existing which served as a working tool with volumetric approaches and finally as a representation object for the perspectives.

High-quality mechanical watches are pieces of fine jewellery with a complex inner life. To produce these marvels of craftsmanship, countless individual steps must work together in a refined way. Today, watches are often put together at assembly stations, which support the highly qualified watchmakers with semi-automated processes. Laser beams can melt and even vaporise metals highly efficiently and very precisely. For this reason, they are increasingly used as a tool for joining components, namely for welding and soldering e. Normally, laser devices — like conventional welding torches — have a single focal point or "spot". Laserline has now developed multispot optics for laser soldering and welding which also allow particularly difficult materials to be processed.

There is the storied Elm City of Yale University, a place of carillon bell towers, leaded glass windows and lush quadrangles behind iron gates. But the artist Titus Kaphar wants to shift the narrative to a part of the city little known to outsiders, a once-thriving historic African-American neighborhood called Dixwell where he and his family have lived for more than a decade. Kaphar, 42, has a profound connection to the forgotten, from the slaves owned by the founding fathers to the ubiquity of African-Americans in the criminal justice system, including his own father.
