Fragments d'Arquitectura

Fragments d’Arquitectura is a project that was born tangent to the borders between different plastic arts, especially drawing, photography, painting, sculpture and architecture. The works that make up this exhibition were carried out between 2019 and 2020, paying tribute to the historical and contemporary architectural heritage of the island of Formentera. The result are pieces full of nuances and with great material uniformity, which enhances the duality necessary to conceive Architecture: hollow and full, inside and outside, light and shadow…

Recent Projects

Es Pou

“Es Pou de Can Marianet Barber” is a historical place name in the interior of the island of Formentera, which also gives its name to the present intervention located next to it. In this rural parcel of generous dimensions, there are several pre-existents that condition the insertion of the small first residence in the territory. Among them, the network of dry stone walls that have manifested for centuries the structure of the property as well as the organization of crops stand out.

Port de la Selva

Port de la Selva is a small coastal settlement in the northernmost part of the Costa Brava. The intervention is located on a plot of the “La Tamariua” urbanization on the northern slope of Puig Gros, a small promontory that surrounds and protects the town’s port. The topography has a steep slope towards the sea with abundant outcrop of porphyry, a dark and hard rock that characterizes the geology of volcanic origin of the place.

Ca l’Amo is a plot of 42,385 m2 located at the north end of the San Mateo plain on the island of Ibiza. In it there is an area of pronounced topography and fanned by stone walls that generate an iconic landscape of the countryside of Ibiza. Over time and the progressive abandonment of agricultural activities, the terraces have been ambushed and today it is a forest area where mainly pine and juniper coexist.

The port of La Savina is the main point of access to Formentera island. Its important geographical location makes it the border between an urban area, the Mediterranean Sea and a saltwater lake which forms part of Ses Salines Natural Park. Giving protection to the open sea, this lake has traditionally been used as a natural harbor to anchor small fishing boats. And, currently, the administration has deemed it suitable to house the CENF – Formentera Water Sports Center.
