RESIDENTIAL BUILDING FOR THE BARCELONA '92 OLYMPIC GAMES IN BANYOLES

Banyoles. Girona / 1989 | 1991-1992 / 5.265 m2

Finalist on the "Show Case of Spanish Architecture 1991-1993 of MOPT".

 

One of 10 sets of housings realized for the Olympic Games of 1992 in Banyoles's headquarters, close to the lake of the city. The U-shaped arrangement and the interior court with garden were prearranged by the Urban Plan. The project proposed to break both corners to help the views towards the lake and the immediate park. The building combines two types of housings: flats and duplex, breaking this way the excessive volumetric inflexibility. The treatment of fronts, covers and exterior volumes tries to create a smaller grain of the set, taking again the idea of the provisional and fragmented architectures of the constructions of the environments.
