Phrame Design, Barcelona, ES, Co-founder, CEO, Communication Manager & CGI

Besides dealing with the role and tasks of a CEO such as client relationship, website development, social media, interviews, online courses, economic projection, expenses and profits, relationship with external suppliers, ... I was not only a CGI (3D designer) but also an architecture designer specialized in materiality, structure, facades, vegetation and urban planning. In other words, I gave council on the overall look of the building externally as well as internally with deep knowledge of the project's concept and the architect's intentions so, I did not only produce the image per se, I also helped on taking important decisions of the projects I intervened at.

I left Phrame after a year of its foundation, and the numbers were the following:
- 1404 followers on Facebook (Phrame Barcelona)
- 1680 followers on Instragram (@phramebarcelona)
- 3782 followers and over 26951 views on Behance (Phrame Barcelona)

I had over 20 clients, some of them were small companies (10-20 employees), others medium sized (50-100 employees), others big (100-500 employees), and some of them were huge companies (1000-5000 employees).

Ricardo Bofill Taller de Arquitectura, Barcelona, ES, Architect & CGI

Ricardo Bofill Taller de Arquitectura (RBTA) develops urban design, masterplans for emerging cities, landscaping, interior design, big public and private buildings such as airports, stadiums, ...

My role in the company as junior designer was to help the project manager, and usually Ricardo Bofill as well, to design in real time a realistic 3D model of the project, providing as well knowledge and solutions for any facade, material, technologic, structural and/or distribution issues we could encounter. In addition to that I also produced many of the final realistic computer generated imagery.

The project that influenced me the most was the Nou Camp Nou competition in which we worked on a proposal for the rehabilitation of F.C.Barcelona's stadium. Our project was one of the eight finalists.

Nou Camp Nou Stadium, Barcelona, Nomination

Issuer: Futbol Club Barcelona

FINALIST: RBTA's new F.C.Barcelona’s Stadium proposal is a catalyst for the urban development of Barcelona, and especially for the neighborhood of Les Corts. By means of its scale the NCN appears as a monument in the district, yet planned on a domestic and human scale. This much needed balance will be achieved through a cautious and sensitive approach to every single angle of the site as we come near and enter the Stadium.

The NCN is a large bowl for 105,000 spectators that must guarantee maximum comfort and the best sightlines. The remodelling project involves improving and complementing the outstanding existing structure by Mitjans. The roof as a light, integrative cover, symbolically displays the Cross of Saint Jordi.

From the inside, a transparent skin allows for the creation of balconies and destinations at different levels that can be visited 24/7, offering commanding views of the sea and the mountains and of the city’s most iconic buildings.

It will become the largest Stadium in Europe offering an exceptional atmosphere.


220 11th Avenue, New York, 2nd Place

Issuer: Monian Group

FINALST: RBTA's project works as a urban magnet will perfectly integrate within West Chel­sea’s urban tissue, reflecting the district’s vibrant cultural activity. The project will provide an attractive mix of 71 condominium residences and a gallery /museum area distributed over three floors, featuring soaring 20-feet ceilings. Wrapped up in a glass facade, the building’s podium extends the gallery/museum area into the public realm.

The high-efficiency scheme guarantees maximum layout flexibility and easy construction.


MSC Headquarters, Barcelona, 1st Place

Issuer: MSC Cruises

WINNER: RBTA's proposal is a transparent glazed building perfectly placed in the site in order to respond the day to day circulation of buses, taxis, and cars together with the huge cruises arrivals and departures. The internal circulations are meticulously designed as well as the distribution of the program along with the general "tree" structure of the building.


Mar de la China, Barcelona, 3rd Place

Issuer: Construmat

THIRD PRICE: Cop d'Idees' proposal for the Construmat most efficient housing complex award was delicate and smart. The innovative roof system Plou i fa Sol, which not only worked as a solar panel but also as a water heater, and the architectural three volume concept used to resolve the topography were two important factors of the project's success.
