A Silent Death

Alvaro Guillen joins us again for another submission for the Portfolio Challenge. He takes on the redevelopment of La Coruñas’ Port area. Find out how he portrays the breakdown and design basics in an inviting way.

A Silent Death aims to create a reinterpretation of the way and form that infrastructure should take in the port city of La Coruña, Spain. Last time Alvaro Guillen submitted “Cultuhipismo”, which was created with the aim of fostering a space for discussion and the battle of ideas. This time around Alvaro is taking on much more complex systems and designs aimed at providing a space for people to walk and transport themselves through the city. It is also an addition to the movement that started in Bilbao to refurbish old, industrial areas of cities, especially the port areas.

Alvaro created this project during his studies at Universidad Francisco Vitoria (UFV) in Spain. The space he creates consists of different levels and ways of forming intersections that allow for the visitor to view the city in a different light. Now Alvaro Guillen is living in San Francisco while working at AMLGMHe worked his way towards his career change to the USA, and emphasized the value that his internship experience at NH Hotels gave him fresh out of University.
