Museo de Historia Natural. Proyecto U.N.R.

Natural History Museum
Project for a new building for the Museum of Natural History of the city of Rosario (Argentina), located in a public park and right off one of the main circulation arteries of the city.A space for dinosaurs that come and go…Trees, skies and different colors through the passage of the seasons…A man looks, walks, and absorbs all the conditions that he considers inherent to time…The concept moves away from the idea of the museum as one sole building. Instead the architecture fragments itself allowing different forms of experiencing public space. It is possible to access to the amphitheatre, the library and the bar without entering the museum.The void conditions and shapes the new building, arranging, perforating and assuming it as own. It shelters the existing building embracing it but without touching it, respecting their distance in time and space.Its materiality is exacerbated by the use of concrete only, with one sole color to harmoniously negotiate between the technical issues and the landscape.The building invites those that pass by to stay, offering different speed and spatial qualities, benches, flooring and roofing that transcends its skin. Here architecture instead of being pretentious, it adheres to the rhythms of life, to songs, to the very place…

Proyecto Urbano. Valparaiso. Chile

Estudio: arq. Jorge Mario Jauregui

Concurso Petrobras. Victoria. Brasil. Arq. J. Jauregui

The building is conceived with the criterion of triple sustainability: ambient (used of environmental characteristics, topographic and climatic), economic (promoting a scheme based in energy saving allowing at the same time, comfort and facility of support), and social (promoting a favorable environment for integration and conviviality).
-The architectonic area is based in the idea of “total building” that implicates the convergence of multiples variables articulated with unity of conception resulting of multidisciplinary board of conjunct of factors enveloped. The aim, is the configuration of a building with unitary character, that brings the separation of each component part of the program. The access Atrium, thought as a conviviality square, constitutes a neuralgic point able to receipt, in an harmonic space, the possibility of integrate different events of collective character, using the visuals of the city and the mountains.
-The construction is conceived searching the minimized ambient impact, promoting a general attitude of eco-efficiency and eco-numeral. It offers a contemporary working space characterized by comfort and easy modification of layouts and energy friendly, in concordance with the LEED concepts.
-the project foresees a system of utilizations of energy based in the cogeneration (gas-electricity) in contemplation to reduce the cost and the contamination.
-The design of the building innovates in the incorporation of the public dimension through the materialization of conviviality space (the Atrium) that dialogues with the city, facilitating activities with collective character. The façade of the offices, is conceived with the function of double efficiency: capturing solar energy in concordance with the orientation and at the same time thermo protection, incorporating the views.
