Centre d'estudis Macba is a proposal of re-definition of the Centro de Estudios y Documentación del Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Barcelona's lobby. The project is originated by the change of the exhibition hall into an activity room by proposing interactive and horizontal activities, going for the digitalization and accessibility of the archive and the communication channels. Furthermore, a Community platform is offered to a collaborative design of the furniture for future activities. The centre's communication is based on the ambiguity of space and in the numerous activities than can converge resulting in a useful graphic system to inform about the type of activities, as well as where and when to find them. This project was made within an interdisciplinary team formed by Jessica Escanellas, Joan Marc Ferret, Raul Haro, Amadeu Ventayol and Marina Martínez.Go to top of page

Durruti is a biannual magazine about contemporary thought. By making a parallelism with the editorial intention of this magazine, proposal for non-lineal reading is presented. For that reason, a division of the content is created by grouping it in levels of reading (title, outstanding, image and text), where the reader could go into it in depth depending on its degree of interest thanks to a system of four-directional pagination in which is indicated the other levels corresponding to the article.Go to top of page

A la feina, cap risc is a line of five posters submitted to the contest "Prevenció de riscos laborals" (Labour Risk Prevention). The series of posters focuses on the message, which suffers -in a metaphorical sense- a risk of each specific field. There is risk of burning-out (because of stress), of cutting oneself, of suffering back pain due to holding a bad position, of suctioning smoke and of stepping on sharp objects. This project was done with Rubén Gutiérrez.
