19 May, 2018_ Vernissage Víctor’s Exhibition in Feldkirch

Painting has always been and now, even more, has become a very important part of my life. The impulse of my friends has given me the courage to show my paintings in an exhibition, that will take place in Feldkirch during the following two months. The landscapes of Vorarlberg and the Rheintal have inspired me, as before Madrid or Cantabria did.

Monforthaus Feldkirch, Zwischentöne: Kreis-Dialog

Celebrating the 800 years of Feldkirch’s history, Gloria Ochoa was invited to take part in this event. The Monforthaus organized an original dialog set: some people born in Feldkirch who carry out successful careers abroad, together with new foreign citizens who have come here to stay, contributed with their ideas about the present and the future of Feldkirch.

1 Prize Wettbewerb Neubau Doppelturnhalle und Kindergarten Mauren  “Mayer und Hüssy architekten” mit Gloria Ochoa

1 Prize Wettbewerb Neubau Doppelturnhalle und Kindergarten Mauren “Mayer und Hüssy architekten” mit Gloria Ochoa

Thanks to Urs and Uli for the opportunity to work together and design such a nice building! Projekt Description Die Erweiterung der bestehenden Schulanlage mit Kindergarten und Doppelturnhalle erfolgt im nord/östlichen Bereich des Bebauungsperimeters. Ein zweigeschossiges Gebäude, welches sich mäandrierend in die leicht abfallende Topografie einbettet, verlängert den Schultrakt B. Diese klare Setzung erfüllt gleich zwei wichtige Anliegen des Auslobers, einerseits Synergien ermöglichen für eine zukünftig durchlässigere Schulentwicklung zwischen Primarschule und Kindergarten und anderseits einen weiten, zusammenhängenden Freiraum für Pausen- und Spielaktivitäten

2 Prize Competition in Au, die Schweiz

2 Prize Competition in Au, die Schweiz

We have just got the second prize! in this competition, together with Urs Hüssy and Uli Mayer, architects in Triesen, and with Andrea Schwoerer, lanscape architect in Sankt Gallen. Thanks to this well organized competition by the City Council Au, we had the chance to give our best ideas about how to create a “center” in a village which slowly is evolving in a small town. This new Center would accomodate the offices for the City Council, a Commercial Center, the Church-House, and new dwellings.

Summer Travel back

Summer Travel back

August_2017, in our way back to Austria, we made another stop. Geneva, a wonderful city, hides (it is not so easy to find) the Maison Clartè. Iron, wood, and beton in a wise combination define another masterpiece of the modern architecture. It seems to have been renovated, and it looks like brand new!

Summertime_2017

July-August_2017 Santander has inaugurated its own “landmark”, the new building for the Fundación Botín is a fine work of Renzo Piano. Some of its better achievements are the generosity with the open spaces, the free accesibility to the building’s terraces without entering into the building, the different appearance of the enveloping reflecting the colour of the sky or the sea, and furthermore, the excellent exhibition of the Goya drawings. It deserves a drive or a flight!
