Etseib C’ Departamental Building / Ravetllat Ribas Architects

Architects: Ravetllat Ribas Architects
Location: Barcelona, Spain
Project Team: Pere Joan Ravetllat, Carme Ribas
Project Year: 2008
Project Area: 2,166 sqm
Photographs: Roger Casas

The project concerns de construction of a new departmental building (C’) for the Industrial Engineering School of Barcelona (ETSEIB) of the Polytechnic University of Catalonia (UPC). The site is located in the intersection of Pau Gargallo and Pacual Vila Streets, in the ancient site of the nuclear reactor “Argos” serving academic purposes.

The new building adds its volume to the small constructions that set the elevation of Pau Gargallo Street: it sets the end of those small pavilions continuing the brick work basement along the street. The project reinforces that concept with a single volume defined by a lightweight enclosure of aluminium and glass panels. The façade is made with a panel system that can be adapted to the different requests of the program. A light service footbridge with “brise-soleil” helps the solar control and allows glass cleaning as it gives unity to the whole building.

The building is structurally organized in two bays of 10 and 6 meters with concrete pillars and concrete slabs. The bay of 10 meter contains the central corridor that connects with the neighbour building. In the 6 meters bay we located the vertical communication hub, with the stairs, the elevator, the toilets and an installation yard. That distribution helps us to satisfy the requirements for fire prevention and dispose a centralized access minimizing the routes. The pillars are located in the façade having a greater flexibility in the distribution.

The building has two main accesses. The first is in the lowest level at Pascual Vila Street. The other –located on the north façade with an access ramp to main ETSEIB building– gives access to the upper floor, which is really the ground floor level according to the rest of the complex.

Elderly Residence Mas Piteu / Estudi PSP Arquitectura

Architects: Estudi PSP Arquitectura
Location: Barcelona, Spain
Client: Aditnalta promocions, SL.
General contractor: Construccions Sather
Gross FloorArea: 5161,00 sqm
Completion: 2011
Photographs: Francisco Urrutia

The Elderly Residence, located on the outskirts of Barcelona, aims to solve the transition from an urban area to the Collserola Park. The building shows like an organic volume adapted to the topography, the landscape and the pre-existences. The overhangs reinforce the concept of the ground and the vegetation passing under the building. The pre-existing stone arches and retaining walls determine the main entrance to the new building and also its height.

These listed elements are one of the most important features in the project. The level on top of the preserved wall is the boundary between two different parts of the building, one leaning into the other. The stone lower volume comprises ground floor and mezzanine, and hosts main entrances and amenities. The white overhanging volume contains the two bedroom floors, divided by curved corridors.

A small listed old house in the plot has been also included in the project. It has been completely refurbished, and houses four rooms for non-handicapped customers. These extra quality rooms have even an independent entrance.

Radio Nacional de España Headquarters / Ravetllat-Ribas

Architects: Ravetllat-Ribas
Location: Barcelona, Spain
Architect In Charge: Pere Joan Ravetllat, Carme Ribas
Design Team: Olga Schimd, Carles Oliver, Miguel Ángel Sánchez
Project Year: 2007
Project Area: 4,513 sqm
Structural Engineers: Gerardo Rodríguez (STATIC Ingeniería)
Developer: SEGIPSA – RTVE
Photographs: Roger Casas

The main purpose for the new Radio Nacional de España head office in Barcelona was to solve an administrative program combined with editorial and broadcasting services.

The building is a five story volume with rectangular clear geometry. It is located in the ancient industrial neighbourhood of Poblenou, now called [email protected] The new head office is integrated in a rehabilitation master plan that wants to boost the zone with new public buildings.

We proposed a rectangular floor building with the vertical communications hub located approximately in the middle. That situation allows taking the maximum advantage of the façade’s surface. The hub connects the building with the basement floor, the parking and installation rooms.

The façade has a unique modular system capable to provide thickness to the envelope and to incorporate elements for solar light control. That module also involves the solution for the interior screens, dividing the different programs. A service footbridge for cleaning and maintenance covers the perimeter of the four sides of the building, acting also as “brise-soleil” on the required parts. We searched to give natural illumination to every space.

The structure arises as a grid of concrete pillars covering lights from 5,50 to 7,00 meters, and concrete slabs for the floor. Inside the grid appears as a fixed element the communication hub that collaborates to the stability of the building. That core is surrounded by services, technical units and installation yards, constituting a central strip around which is distributed the program with screens and dry construction elements.

Spain's Catalonia unveils plans for mega resort project

BARCELONA — Spain's debt-ridden Catalonia region unveiled plans Friday for a 4.8-billion-euro ($6.0 billion) "Barcelona World" resort but with financing yet to be found and no deal signed.

Catalonia revealed the project as its regional capital Barcelona seemed set to lose a battle with Madrid to lure US firm Las Vegas Sands to build a jobs-rich mega casino project, dubbed Eurovegas.

"Barcelona World" envisages six large tourist complexes near Port-Aventura south of Barcelona with 20,000 hotel rooms, shopping centres, a theatre, convention centre, casinos, services and offices.

Each complex would represent a country or region: Europe, the United States, China, Brazil, Russia and India, and the project promoters said they hope to lure 10 million visitors a year.

The plan is backed by the Catalonia government, La Caixa bank, and the Brazil-based real estate developer Veremonte, whose main shareholder is Spanish billionaire Enrique Banuelos.

They were working "alongside international investors," the Catalan government said in a statement.

But "nothing has been signed, we just have an agreement between the parties to go ahead with the project," said a finance official at the Catalan regional government.

"We are looking for self-financing on an equity basis, which means attracting investors to each of the six complexes who will also take charge of construction in that sector."

Catalonia said the scheme would create an estimated 20,000 jobs, crucial in a period when Spain is suffering an unemployment rate of nearly 25 percent, the highest in the industrialized world.

"Barcelona World" is being made public as news emerged that Las Vegas Sands was likely to spurn Barcelona for a mega casino project.

The two cities have been in talks for months to lure "Eurovegas", with a decision expected by the end of the month.

This week, Madrid regional government head Esperanza Aguirre said she had a "positive intuition" that the Spanish capital would be selected.

"Yes, that's probable," Artur Mas, the head of the government of the northeastern region of Catalonia agreed in a radio interview.

Catalonia's regional and sustainability minister, Lluis Recoder, said "Barcelona World" was in some ways better than "Eurovegas".

"It is a developed and thought-out project," he said in the Catalan government statement.

Unlike the project pushed by billionaire Sheldon Adelson's Las Vegas Sands, "it is a strategic project that has consensus of the territory," he added.

Since it was to be located in in a developed area with no planning modifications required, "the speed of execution of this project is greater than any other that could be on the table, not only in Catalonia but in the whole of Spain," he said.

Opponents of the "Eurovegas" project fear it will open the doors to a prostitution mafia, and they have denounced a return to the excesses of the Spanish property bubble, which imploded in 2008.

Las Vegas Sands, the world's biggest casino company by market value, operates The Venetian and The Palazzo casinos in Las Vegas and Marina Bay Sands in Singapore. It also operates properties in Macao.
