Product design for Madrid Architecture School class.
I designed these prototypes in a design class with professors​ Aranguren + Gallegos. That semester they entrusted us with the work to get a material and give it a new use. The main idea was to create a membrane that would cover the user, that was foldable and transportable and that could be built using simple materials and folding operations.

●LOGO DESIGN● AAGRAFA



Logo  created for AAGRAFA the Audiovisual department of the Madrid Architecture School Library founded by Juan Antonio González Cárceles. AAGRAFA stands for 'Adquisición y Almacenamiento de Material Gráfico Arquitectónico'. This logo was used in the many DVD covers that were produced from September 2005 until the year 2011 when the department was divided from the library and became part of the school itself receiving  a different name and therefore leaving the logo useless.
The two 'A's merged together represent the well known fast forward logo of the video players. Those days were still half analog half digital days so a lot of fast forwarding and rewinding was needed to finish the tasks.

●ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN● INTERVENTION IN UPPER LAWN PAVILION






Four boards
297×420 mm each
Digital and traditional techniques
Ink jet printed on paper




Proposal for an intervention in the Alison & Peter Smithson's Upper Lawn Pavilion developed for architecture design class in Madrid Architecture School.
I discovered Alison and Peter Smithson's work in a school trip we did last year to UK, where we visited many of their buildings. This year we had to choose an existing house from a list, draw it and analyze it first, and then make a proposal for an expansion. I chose these architect's Upper Lawn Pavilion. While researching to find information to draw the house properly, I found their books and texts and is then when I really started to understand their approach to architecture. Magnificent, clear minded, honest, human scale architecture. Nothing to do with what we are used to see now a days in magazines.



●COVER DESIGN● KONSTANTIN MEL'NIKOV DVD


DVD cover design for the documentary Konstantin Mel'nikov digitalized for AAGRAFA.  
I think this is one of the first covers I did for AAGRAFA. When I arrived, they didn't usually make covers to the videos they were creating on DVD, but I managed to convince our boss, Ildefonso to bring us a color printer that printed blank DVDs from the near by offices to our workplace. Even we didn't have a lot of  time to do fancy stuff, just being a two hours a day job we all tried to bring some color and design to the ETSAM library video archive.
