Developing the concept of Human Oriented Parametric architecture, it will be discussed the need of implementing time as the lost parameter in current design techniques. Morphogenetic processes idea will be discussed through the principle of an adaptable intelligent facade, as the thought solution for future architecture design processes improvement. A model implementing a unique Arduino

Enjoying Arduino & Artificial Intelligence workshop! EmDeplo is specialised in digital fabrication and Arduino and Rasberry Pi controlled processed implementation. Adapative environments and intelligent decision making processes in Architecture and Urban Planning are part of our main current research interest.
SEQC offices are located in Barcelona at the “Eixamble dret” next to Gaudi’s Sagrada Familia temple. SEQC required new spaces adequate to new uses next to their historical offices. The original’s building author, Antoni de Moragas Gallissa, completed in 1959 a design which interiors and façades are currently protected by the town hall due to
This family house is located in a truly amazing place: over a cliff above the Mediterranean Sea in the north of Mallorca just opposite the Artá Caves. The owner wanted to maximise the habitable space of the plot as the slope was not walkable from the very beginning. so that, maximising the terraces area and focusing
Urbina Country house was bought by the owner in the conditions it was when abandoned in 1950s. This 1700 sq m typical basque country house was completely refurbished trying to maintain all traditional feeling and “savoir faire”. An amazing complex wood structure defines the spirit of the whole house all together with soft finishing and
Tórculo shops designed for Tórculo Global Printers is a leading global printing corporation for which branding and spaces layout is fundamental as it is theirs clients first step into the brand. The owner asked for a global project for all Tórculo shops, including refurbishment works, branding layout and low cost furniture design and customisation. Corporate layout
At EmDeplo we are experienced building and project managers. This project in Barcelona, which building we managed, consisted on a 5 floors building within which three different family houses were embedded. Roof top, garden and cinema utilities within the basement were the designers parts of the building thought for common use. The building terrace included
EmDeplo developed in collaboration with architect Elena Prousalidou @ The Bartlett Adaptive Architecture & Computation program our proposal for an intelligent decision making machine within a variable environment. Through an Artificial Neural Network training for learning was implemented. Two behaviours were implemented. A first behaviour trying to make the machine learn about how to differentiate
The idea of an “Emergency Parametrically Customised Deployable System” was born with [An_D]. [An_D] was a work team, Design Research Laboratory Based, at the Architectural Association of London, which investigated about deployable parametrically customised membranes. Since the beginning we were interested in body oriented architecture, a deployable fully integrated into the body architecture that deploys anywhere and
The apartment is located in a typical 1920’s Barcelona brick and metal building. The refurbishment works done where global as the apartment was in the original 1920’s conditions. Unluckily it was not possible to recover more than the original ceilings and walls. The original hydraulic tiles were destroyed and so most of the carpentry. The
The cutting patterns of this multilayer membrane, that are controlled in four different scales, will hold all the design weight. Controlling some basic parameters, it is possible to order the material how to behave. Emdeplo conceived this type of membrane as the future adaptable customisable architecture. The membrane is deployable and arrives on site rolled and packed
Working to develop complex systems more dynamic representations, we are really interested in workshops were digital procedures interact with pure coding. This workshop was developed at the Bartlett for investigating about spring particle systems representation and usability.
The problem of relocation for part of the inhabitants of the Gipsy community of Penamoa arises its demolition is required for the construction of the third highway around the city. This work consists of designing houses with a plot which will be favoured in its acquisition by those families in the community who prefer it to
This family flat was located in a 1950s building at the core at the city that was the perfect example of Galician modernism. With a complete refurbishment of the spaces the family interest were focused in obtaining adaptive spaces and modern and high quality carpentry and metal pieces.
[An_D], Emdeplo’s London seed, defends a NOMADIC ARCHITECTURE. We all have become Nomads, diary nomads of the big metropolis of the 21st century, who carry with them all necessary items for surviving 24 hours. Humans became stressed and velocity has emerged as a new variable in our cities and life generating an anxious way of life that sometimes can destroy the human structure. Relaxing Pod is an envelope that, through the human movements, controls a transition from an impersonal
EmDeplo is focused on new planning methodologies, mostly on the digital technology based one. This Urban Plan of a new family houses settlement was develop taking into account urban mechanics and services effectiveness maximisation.
An ecumenical centre is always a very interesting mix of uses and personal beliefs and considerations. This competition proposal was based on the idea of light as a transitional guide for spaces development.
Standardisation and structure lightness was the main basis of the post office proposed that, through specialised detailing, aims to get a very simple but excellent space for regular post office duties
In recents decades the notion of a time-based design has increased the architectural practises in exploring new kinds of design more linked to biology. This approach allows thinking in a new kind of architecture whose morphogenesis process can be directly linked to human needs and material plasticity. This membrane studies reflects our position in the
The triage emergency system proposed consist in a negotiated mixed space where the interaction between doctors, nurses and patients takes place only in the moments that is completely compulsory. The “sensor-ized” pod will react to the patient weight and movement making a complete adaptable cell, but being always within the positions allowed for the doctor to the patient.
This structural design was proposed as the basis for a industrial building in the surroundings of Barcelona. At EmDeplo we are specialised in strict structural and building process control.
A family composed by two artist and two teenagers required our office some studies for a very particular family house for them: not only a house in which all of them can develop their creativity in isolation but also to be able to have occasionally share spaces. An adaptive a flexible design that was also rotating
Designed for the wooden boardwalk this public toilet was designed for a complete integration with the landscape of the beach. Being an urban token and an iconic item it was completely prefabricated and sustainable materials composed.
Vinaroz, at the Mediterranean coast of Spain, has an excellent marine walk where several activities take place all along the year. The cafeteria proposal was designed in response to those moments need of a new cafeteria at the beach sidewalk. Created with prefabricated pieces from steel and wood, it was proposed a delicate shape
This Urban Plan studies were one of the first ones done by EmDeplo. A medium sized town in the Galician countryside were our last implementation of handmade technique without being mixed with digital technologies.
A Bus station is a flow node within the city structure. Define by the passengers flows its development shows the important function it develops within the city’s daily life and complex set of transport relations. EmDeplo believes in a dynamic architecture within which time is another variable that influences the design from the very beginning. The structure
