Mixed-Use Courtyard Building

The objective of this University of Calgary term-abroad design studio was to urbanize, in the formerly industrial Diagonal Mar area of Barcelona, an empty triangular lot wedged between a park with luxury high rise towers on one side and a long, zig-zagging social housing project from

Glòries Masterplan

Cities such as Barcelona, which have grown gradually over the course of millenia, have to deal extensively with antiquated structures. Yet in many cases it is structures that are only decades old that pose the greatest problems. An example is the elevated

Hillside Urbanism, Vallcarca

This urban design project, realized by University of Calgary architecture students Lindsay Horan, Will Frank, and Alana Piche, proposes to urbanize a degraded hillside in the steep Vallcarca valley of Barcelona; adjacent to where a viaduct crosses the busy valley road. In order to take advantage of an

Quick ‘n’ Cheap Architecture: Ephemeral Urban Micro-Interventions

In this workshop seminar, students qualitatively researched Iberian urban public space typologies through a series of ephemeral micro-interventions. The interventions were not allowed to require more than 20 minutes to be assembled, documented, and disassembled; could not cost more than
