    I feel good today, I've played golf with Heikki Kovalainen earlier in the morning at El Saler Golf Club.
    Heikki is a fabulous golf player.
    Tonight will be a great party in the megayacht 'Indian Express'... hahaha

    NOTE (SPA): Una excelente noticia que esta instalación vuelva a Murcia, porque hace más de 15 años se pretendió construir el primer centro en la Av. Juan Carlos I, pero presiones políticas llevaron, en aquellos años de crisis en el sector de la conserva, la instalación actual hasta Molina de Segura (zona del Barrio de San José Obrero). Lo peor fué que en su parcela inicial de Espinardo se edificó finalmente el tanatorio ahora existente junto a la Torre Medi, una instalación que carece de sentido en esa ubicación terciaria por lo inapropiado de la misma en ese entorno . Un auténtico desafuro y otro error más de los tristes tiempos de un mal alcalde de Murcia llamado José Méndez.

    Nos vemos, @Murcianico-Kid... y cúrate las ganas de más info en SSC este fin de semana: seguro que hacen un buen linkeado de periódicos estos días o cuelgan las primeras fotos y vídeos que pillen metiendo "Murcia" en el search de Flickr o Youtube. Son unos cracks en ese aspecto !... jajaja.

    Te dejo también la plataforma logística de Consum en Las Torres de Cotillas, que es otro proyecto de GRUPOTEC: http://www.grupotec.es/es/proyectos/...ca-consum.html

    Hi, Alfonsico !

    I will be this Sunday at the VIP tribune beside the grid, but if you are motivated and want to see the Qualifying on Saturday from inside the paddock, then I can invite to you... and we take a coffee in the Ferrari's hospitality. I know you're a great fan of Spanish F1 driver Fernando Alonso.

    It would be fabulous meet up with you on Valencia Streets Circuit this weekend, because we take to talk about many issues and take drinks, before you move to London next July.


    Kind Regards.

    COOL. Lovely cars
    Certainly, Marussia's project is a good example of invest + technology to create a new industry in Russia.

    Marussia = Cosworth engine + body car design by Russian engineers.

    Why not in Murcia ? We've had the same project to development a factory in Fuente Alamo Tech Park (Hispania project) but finally Murcia's politicians prefer spend our money in nonsenses like SOS 4.8, Manifesta-8, San Esteban's Archeology Site and other stupid issues. Murcia needs hi-tech projects and international image... and maybe, change its politician leaders...

    ----------------------------
    Es una vergüenza que teniendo Murcia uno de los mejores telares de fibra de carbono de Europa en la factoría de MTorres de Fuente Álamo, el Gobierno Regional no haya querido apoyar el proyecto de la familia Carabante para crear un Motorland y una fabrica de chasis. HRT tiene también los motores Cosworth que monta el Virgin-Marussia de Sir Richard Brandson & Marussia Motors Co., con lo que se podía haber abierto en nuestra Comunidad una factoría de superdeportivos de lujo de altas prestaciones sin gran dificultad, máxime cuando se tiene además una licencia de F1 para asociar el producto y poder comercializarlo. Hispania sólo pedía 20 millones para ello: lo mismo que van a gastar en San Esteban, menos que lo que ha costado el edificio de la Gerencia de Murcia o la mitad del presupuesto del Auditorio de Cartagena. Lo mismo que hace Marussia con los motores Cosworth de sus modelo B1 y B2 era plenamente realizable en Murcia hoy día al 100%. España es el 5º fabricante mundial de vehículos y tiene mejor tecnología base para ello que Rusia, pero quizás sus políticos sean netamente peores que los rusos y no vean las oportunidades de negocio delante de sus narices. Un lástima enorme tener que ver que estas cosas pasan en 2011 en Murcia y que se apuesta sólo por clonar proyectos ya manidos y existentes en otros lugares del país, como parques de atracciones o el rollo de Contentpolis. Está claro que innovar y diversificar nuestra oferta industrial y tecnológica es algo que a los políticos murcianos les importa un carajo. Eso sí, mientras tanto, todos comprando camisetas de Ferrari a 200 euros y babeando cada vez que Alonso adelanta a alguien,... ¡ Murcia, parnaso de paletos !

    ARCHITECT RAMON SANABRIA BOIX
    SPEAKS ABOUT
    MURCIA INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT TERMINAL





    INSPIRATION AND FUNCTIONALITY

    “The design for Región de Murcia International Airport’s terminal building was inspired by the traditional Baroque architecture of the Región de Murcia,” says the architect Ramon Sanabria.


    It’s an affirmation that initially surprises when you contrast it with the clear, clean, well-defined lines of the structure which seems to have been designed to blend into the local landscape.

    Ramon Sanabria, Carlos Ferrater and Josep Casadevall, who co-designed the terminal, together with Vicente Martínez during the tendering stage, are three architects from Barcelona who enjoy huge recognition throughout Spain.

    All three architects have previously been involved in important public projects. For example, Sanabria redesigned the Olympic terminal at Barcelona airport, as well as Barcelona’s Theatre Institute, various police stations, and the modern Barcelona hospital, Clínica Dexeus. Ferrater has shown his capacity to work with landscape in his new design for Barcelona’s Botanical Garden, as well as the new clubhouse in El Prat Golf Club. He has also worked on large-scale projects like the impressive Delicias AVE high-speed train station in Zaragoza.

    LIGHT, SHADE, RELIEFS

    Sanabria understands that the connection between a building and an aesthetic style, in this case the Baroque, cannot be sought in a simplistic way, as has been done on occasion resulting in “garish architectural gestures”. He believes in something more subtle.

    “The Baroque style is the art of light, shade, reliefs and textures”, Sanabria points out to explain the source of his inspiration.

    He speaks with passion, a certain irony and a lot of confidence. He drew his ideas from his own experience, from a reality which he has studied in depth - the most representative architecture of the Region. In the design of the airport terminal the architects have “tried to create shadows, combinations of light and shade”. An example of this can be seen on the building´s façade, where metal sheets and letters have been arranged in order to create contrast between the dark and the bright.

    “The basic idea is to create reliefs and, therefore, volume. In this way an effect of vibration or dynamism is achieved, which can be maintained even in the hours of darkness through the use of appropriate artificial lighting” he adds.

    “In short, the building has been integrated into the landscape using contextualizing criteria, which have nothing to do with folklore or with making the building look like a theme park,” Sanabria explains. “In other words, the connection has not been established by replicating certain characteristic features”, he clarifies, “but through a more abstract treatment of colours and ambiences and the layout of different elements”.

    A TERMINALTHAT IS “EASYTO READ”

    In Región de Murcia International Airport the Baroque inspiration combines with a desire for extreme functionality. The building is geometrically very simple. The geometry was designed in such a way as to ensure a very clear and simple operation. The terminal is, to quote a phrase often used by architects, including Sanabria, “a building that is very easy to read.”

    Ramon Sanabria explains that there are lateral patios featuring water and vegetation. As a result, there is room for lateral expansion as the airport grows, without altering the physiognomy or the functionality of the main terminal building.

    The architects have endeavoured to make the building energy-friendly, using a series of strategies traditionally used in countries with warm climates, and in particular in those that surround the Mediterranean.

    These are practices which have been used for centuries, but which got forgotten in the obsession for fast development. “The terminal is configured in such a way as to make maximum use of transversal ventilation, which, aided by the orientation of the building, greatly reduces the need for air-conditioning for much of the year, leading to considerable energy savings,’ Sanabria points out.

    LOCAL REFERENCES

    In the same way, pergolas on the roof create air chambers that provide additional thermal insulation.

    The architects opted, as explained, to use local references but not in a very obvious way. In general, airports tend to be indifferent to their surroundings, as if they were just placed there but don´t really belong. They often look interchangeable. It is only in the developing world where there are still some older, small terminals that have characteristics of the local geography.

    But “throughout the ages, good architecture is not interchangeable between locations. It should be anchored in a certain place,” Sanabria states.
    Sanabria has been able to work on an additional improvement in relating the new building to its surroundings, as he has been assigned a landscape project by the Regional Government of Murcia to ensure that all the elements that airport users see from the moment they exit the motorway for the airport until they arrive at the terminal building itself “speak the same language”.

    THE QUALITY OF THE LIGHT

    The new Región de Murcia International Airport is located in a place that has certain characteristics which stand out. They are light, sun, relatively high temperatures, and a scarcity of water.

    The terminal’s designers presented a building that softens the most extreme aspects of the surroundings into which it is integrated. One of the key ways in which they have done this is through the treatment of light.

    They sought to introduce light into the building from above, a more effective option for its treatment. The skylight windows, for example, are designed to reflect the light onto earth-coloured surfaces so that it acquires the correct tone. The quality of the light helps to establish just the right connection between the dominant colours of the building and those of the surroundings.

    The architects also tried to ensure that the treatment of light produce an effect that moderates the heat. “We looked for the refreshing effects that are typical of a marquee like structure”, Sanabria offers as an example.

    This refreshing effect is reinforced by the selection of flooring made of natural stone which guarantees quality lighting.

    A RELAXING AIRPORT

    For Sanabria, the treatment of light is crucial in combating the potentially stressful effects of an airport. This is something the architect managed successfully in his remodelling of the Olympic terminal in Barcelona Airport.

    “It is crucial in any airport,” continues Sanabria, “to create an ambience that reduces tension. We wanted to create a peaceful and calming environment with spaces that seem empty, even though they are full”. This is something that Sanabria thinks he achieved in the cited Barcelona terminal.
    The objective to create different levels of light and temperature in relation to the surroundings was fundamental in order to obtain a high level of comfort and feeling of welcome for airport users.

    In countries with warm climates and lots of light, the definition of transition spaces between the exterior and the interior is very typical. Between exterior and interior. Between what Sanabria defines as the “exterior-exterior and the interior-interior, or the outside-outside and the inside-inside”, to use a more colloquial expression”. For that reason a kind of semi-darkness is created at the entrance.

    This is nothing new, Sanabria reminds us. It is something that is very evident in public buildings and particularly in public buildings in the Región de Murcia. In the Cathedral itself and other temples, for example.

    In these emblematic buildings the transition between exterior and interior is very evident and is achieved by using certain design strategies that have also been applied in the airport terminal building. In architect speak, it consists of “compressing the section,” into something that transforms the space into an area with a comfortable height. After that, one enters into a space with much greater height.

    This is the effect that the architects sought in the design of the access points to the terminal.

    GATEWAY

    “An airport is also a gateway and, therefore, needs to be recognisable as such. In this case, recognisable as Región de Murcia International Airport”, signals Sanabria.

    “For this reason we opted to integrate the word MURCIA into the airside facade of the building. We have the added advantage that, as a place name, MURCIA is the same in Spanish as in English”, he adds. The word MURCIA, in fact, blends into the building, it forms part of the façade, using the colours of the land: beige, ocher, brown...”

    But if the huge reference to Murcia is an obvious symbol of identity, other qualities of the airport establish that subtle connection with the land which the architects have sought from the beginning: light, colour, shade, reliefs, a calm and relaxing ambience...the spirit of the Región de Murcia.

    NOTE (SPA): Y el tío seguro que no se puso ni colorao cuando dijo todas estas chorradas sobre el 'Barroco' y "su" aeropuerto. Aquí faltarían ahora los comentarios de mi compadre @Aenobarbo para dejar el asunto "listo papeles". ¡ Vaya cara que tienen algunos personajes !. Siempre lo dije: el Urbanismo es la filosofía, la Ingeniería las matemáticas y la Arquitectura la literatura de un proyecto. Este arquitecto es un buen "cuenta-cuentos", porque rollo no le falta el tío para vender la burra que no colocaron antes en un concurso del sur de Italia (concurso del Aeropuerto de Lamezia Terme) porque era una porquería de proyecto... seguro que allí les habría hablado del Manierismo y del Trecento florentino si se dejan para colar su 'aeropuerto de chichinabo'. ¡ Qué poca vergüenza tiene este caballero !... y lo malo es que se va hacer rico con el dinero de los murcianos... ¡ Valiente geta tienes Ramonet para decir que te has inspirado en la Catedral de Murcia en el diseño de un aeropuerto que llevaste antes a un concurso italiano ! Tira por ahí y vete a esparragar por donde los pepinos agrían, ¡ caradura !...
