Did we make some progress in the understanding of the constant, and constantly tied, flux that bonds nature and architecture? Could we utilize the physical environment as a building material and, consequentially, understand architecture as an interface of energies?<br /> Is it possible to define an aesthetic capable of rendering symbolically these confluences? And can we define this aesthetic pragmatically; making it operative, critic and competitive?<br /> We chose a sub-tropical island -biosphere reserve -whose future, economy, and social progress depend heavily of the interaction between nature and culture. Despite its specificity, this case represents problems that became universal: the tense relation between the environment and the metropolis; and the unquestioned political horizon for the metropolis of the twentieth first century: the effective balance between progress and the preservation of natural resources.<br /> We chose a typology -the Observatory -that swings between the cosmos and the micro cosmos, between the macro and microscopic scales. From its "natural" vantage point, the observatory fosters a redefinition of traditional concepts of landscape and museum. In others words, enables a critical approach to the linkage of men, landscape and culture.<br /> The Island<br /> The island of La Palma is the singular product of a series of volcanic eruptions -still active today –that produced a topography of dense relief; one of the islands with the highest average altitude in the world. Alexander van Humboldt defined it as " a fortress elevated in the middle of the ocean." (footnote) This topography, together with its position in relation to the north-eastern Alisios winds, gives the island a particular relation with the water. With such a meteorological combinations, the north and east zones of the island have a clime very distinct from the south and west areas one. The north and east regions have requent rain, which allow for a singular flora (Pine-groves and Laurisilva forests) and for an abundance of potable water without parallel in the whole of Canary Islands. Moreover, this side of the island, given the position of Santa Cruz's harbour (the island's capital) as the last interchange and supplying point for the<br /> American routes until the twentieth century, developed an extraordinary relation with seafaring transit. The cultural richness derived from this close connection with the sea routes is still visible in the island. Along with the climatic and historic features, the combined effect of altitude, position in the ocean, and winds regime, produces a particularly ideal environment for astronomic observation. The south and west regions of La Palma were the place of the spectacular volcanic explosions of the 40s and 70s of the last century. Such an<br /> overwhelming territory is being slowly domesticated by human hand with and array of different strategies: vineyards, plantain-walks, orchards, and tourism. This part of the island has a subtropical weather regime.<br /> The omnipresence of the sun, the clear atmosphere and the strength of a lively soil give these zones a tropical character in stark contrast with the humid Atlantic clime of the north and east regions described before. The so-called green-ray is a frequent appearance in the unique sunsets observable from this part of the island. The geomorphologic processes, usually dated in millions of years, given the geological youth of this land, can be perceived and experienced here in the present. Synthesizing the previous description, we could sign that La Palma enables a very intense experience of the four classical natural elements: air, fire, water and earth. The experience of these elements should be interpreted as the experience of energy sources, in the Aristotle's assertion. In his Physics, Aristotle proposed the word energy to express the power<br /> of the natural elements to engender life, the processes through which is constituted the world we live in and which is the framework of our own experience.<br /> Intervention in La Palma Island<br /> The present proposal of an energy observatory in La Palma is part of a wider environmental, architectonic and landscape related intervention for the entire island. Synthesizing a range of programs intended to promote a deeper understanding of the bond between nature and culture, this global proposal condenses those programs into four punctual interventions: four observatories. Each of these observatories will entangle an intense relation -a conversation - with each of the elements that produce the island's singular landscape.<br /> Each of them will algo be sited with different orientations and in different parts of the island.<br /> At north, the Roque de los Muchachos Observatory takes advantage of the unique qualities of La Palma's atmosphere for astronomic observation. Such a facility makes a vision of the cosmos understandable and directly tangible for the visitor, and renders visible the collective scientific work of the international community of astrophysics. Together with the precedent functional qualities, the observatory is also a topographic landmark, with a spectacular view of the Caldera of Taburiente (national park) and an overview of the surrounding islands, as well as the culminating point of the footpath's network of the northern part of theisland.<br /> At east, the proposal comprises a Water Observatory. With a program currently in development, this observatory is intended to relate meteorology, hydraulic engineering, and the harbour with the local culture. Culture here understood in the double meaning of agricultural and artistic practices. Thus, definitely, a holistic vision of techné associated with the island's water. And an immediate physical experience of such techné in itself, a building placed between the springs and the harbour, as a bond or a vector in both directions.<br /> At south, between the Vulcan of San Antonio Fuencaliente's Lighthouse and the Salt Works, this integrated program propases the construction of an Earth Observatory. This observatory would explain the ongoing geological formation of the island, the movements of the tectonic plaques and the general geomorphologic constitution of the Canary Islands Archipelago. Both the principies of contemporary volcanic science and an experimental introduction to geological temporality could be presented, to a vast public, in this observatory.<br /> At west, we propase to implant a Sun Observatory, or a Fire Observatory. This will be a place dedicated to the sun and to the sunset as a landscape of remembrance, in the manner Claude Lévi-Strauss defined the sunset in "TristesTropiques." Placed in the Time area, viewing ayer the Taburiente Caldera, the fertile Aridane valley, the plantain-walks of Tazacorte and the Del Hierro Island.<br /> The Sun Observatory Gloses the synthetic set of proposals intended to build a new physical and psychological itinerary. The new itinerary will be linked with existing itineraries, like the footpath's network, the main road system and the ocean liners circuits. The map of this set of observatories will also overlap the demographic densities of the island, placing the observatories Glose to some of the main concentrations of population: Santa Cruz, Los Llanos de Aridane, Garafía, and Fuencaliente. This territorial placement will foster, along with new ways of listening, experiencing and understanding the physical environment, a bigger<br /> interaction between locals and between locals and visitors. The network of observatories will be in itself a collective facility and an economic activity. It will be a new reference in everyday life, a new network of links between environment, memory and production.<br /> The previous objective, in order to close the proposal, demands other two objectives or features. The first is the definitive character of the proposal. Its closed and terminal character, as the sale built interventions in the island's landscape. This constitutes a twofold strategy, stopping, and paradoxically enlarging, the scope of some proposals that, for the time being, are discrete, scattered, wilful, and eventually damaging of the sublime character of the island as a whole.<br /> The second objective is to achieve outstanding quality in architectonic and landscape design, and environmentally friendly technology, in these observatories. The fulfilment of this objective would make of the observatories' itinerary a cultural and architectonic landmark in itself. Such a unique experience should be compared to César Manrique's experience in Lanzarote, but now framed by contemporary global and ecological culture.<br /> TIP<br /> A visit of 3-4 days to La Palma island will be organized where a work session with local experts will take place.<br /> RESEARCH PROJECT<br /> Each student has to do a research project during three days. The directors of the seminar will propose a subject. The students have to develop during this week (in June) in the aula and the library of the School of Architecture an investigation about one of the topics which were proposed by the directors of the seminar.<br /> The professors will supervise the work.<br /> INTRODUCTORY WEEK<br /> During the first week of the Master program students of the previous Master program expose their final thesis.<br /> In this week the introduction to the Master course and the program of the projects laboritory will be presented as well as projects which have been developed at the ETSAM and Princeton University by students of the Laboritory for technique and contemporary landscape.<br /> FAL THESIS MASTER PROGRAM<br /> The thesis will be elaborated by the students during the course of the semester. The work will start as teamwork to be developed and finished individually. In the last week of june the students will receive instructions to be able to complete the work which has to be submitted definitely during the introductory week of the following year. At that moment terminates the Master program.
