06 Feb Interior Design students present their projects of Informatics II
On 14 January 2019, second-year students of the Degree in Interior Design presented their projects for the fourth semester of the subject Informatics II. Professor Alicia Fernández tasked the students to draw a famous work made by one of the architects who have won the Pritzker Prize. This award, given to great references such as Frank Gehry, Norman Foster or Frei Otto, has the highest international prestige in Architecture.
During the critical session of the subject, the students had to explain the territorial enclave and the memory of the project. Then, they showed their colleagues how was the planimetry that they had done with the AutoCAD program.
Some of the best projects presented by the ESDi students of Interior Design were:
- Church of the Light. The student Marc Catot chose this work by the Japanese architect Tadao Ando. Made in Osaka in 1989, it stands out for the treatment of light in a simple and unadorned design.
- Glass House. The American architect Philip Johnson was the first winner of the Pritzker Prize in 1979. His most representative work, the Glass House, has been chosen by the student Clara Cubo. Precursor of the modern architectural style and the use of new materials, it is an essay of minimum structure with effects of transparency and reflection.
- Smith House. It is a series of rationalist single-family houses designed by the American architect Richard Meier. The student Gemma Ruiz chose this house, built in the year 67 and inserted in a natural landscape from Connecticut.
- Therme Vals. The student Ferran da Silva opted for this project of the Swiss Peter Zumthor. It’s a thermal complex located in the Alps that is integrated into the environment appearing as a kind of bunker.
Thanks to our interior design students for sharing their projects and congratulations for the results!
