House Prototype R and K
Formation of an urban texture that tries to understand and to reinterprete the familiar local structures.
The planning site lies in a region that was previously exclusively agricultural, namely the nature conservancy area of the Ebro Delta, lying 150 kilometers south of Barcelona. As a consequence of intensive infrastructural development in the region in recent years (three international airports within a circumference of 150 kilometers, and a fully completed motorway and high-speed rail network), it is now possible to live in this sparsely populated area and work at the same time on one of the cities around.
Existing building typologies – Existing typologies of vegetation
Prototype R: no determined front or back side, no fixed spatial allocations
Prototype R: the building retains the appearance of the shell construction
Prototype R: self-construction: glass facades, kitchen and sanitary installation
Prototype K: inwardly orientated courtyard house
Prototype K: distribution of residential functions in separate houses
Prototype K: common room = courtyard
