And suddenly it's calm We have time We can go wherever we want Time to rest to have fun What do you do in your holidays? Tourism. Ficticious spaces We are in the Montcada DHUB and its the first show of DHUB design that is called: 'Tourism.Ficticious Spaces' We're talking about tourism because its the biggest economic activity of the world It's an industry capable of fulfilling all our desires capable of building them reproducing them the media,publicity, the cinema Going to theme parks themed cities new projects. To see who is behind this materialization of our desires We're going to see this exposition Of course! Hi Vicente! Gina, How are you doing? I'm very well, and you? Great I have a question Does ficticious tourism exist? I suppose so It's what many people intend to do when they travel around the world but I find it quite interesting. Tourism where people go to places where they already know what they are going to find what they want to find in themselves what they have in their home it's quite interesting It's more interesting then tourism where people go to find out, to learn they dont want to appropriate the place, but to enjoy it without posessing it They look for diversity more than revisiting what they are already familiar with In the last few years the tourism of the masses has tried to domesticate places to make them safe quiet repetitive. However, now a different kind of tourism is developing a much more intelligent one where people want to discover places without changing them. They want to learn about differences to get to know the world I think the great thing is that the world is diverse and it should continue to be so. Since the mid twentieth century the tourism of sun and beaches has been one of the great urbanizors of the coasts. The coasts are full of different architecture On one hand they reflect the style of each era and on the other hand they show up how society understands leisure time and how it makes use of this free time The spas, the villas the hotels casinos for the aristocracy even artificial islands as the idea of paradise All these architectural styles conform to illustrate how the turist industry has gone that respond to the culture and economy of each moment. Does 21st century tourism exist? I think we have to create structures to look after people but at the same time we have to do it with principles and processes that are very localized I think we have to look for this local excellency so that going to Siberia or the Amazon or to take a boat or go to space are very different experiences Will we eventullay lose Las Ramblas? Las Ramblas have begun quite a dramatic process where in reality it was appropriate for a series of unkown people. I think that the English that come to drink in an English pub in Barcelona to watch a tv or a game of English football is something ridiculous. It's fundamental that cities mantain their identity, and make their surroundings more alive diverse and lively places, dinamic, intelligent. tourist come along lost in the cities they go around with maps. what will future maps be like? Maps have stopped being mere static tools and have become interactive platforms that store information. In such a way that it changes the consumer's habits. As a tourist you're not only looking at and consuming a type of information but through your actions you are giving out information so that another may use this same information We have different projects that discuss introducing certain categories on the internet You choose the amount of time you have, the program redraws the whole geography. That's how a new map appears that adapts to your possibilities. A project of MIT where through tools like the mobile phone, you can generate all the information through which you can build an entire map. A project of the Notte Bianca, in Rome, where in real time through the use of a mobile you can see on some maps displayed around the city how many people there are in each place of interest. So you can decide what you want to do: Go to one place or another. It's an important tool not just for the tourist who uses it, but also for public transport, the police, so they know how to react in the most flexible way. Cities smell. What would you prefer? Berlin Mitte or the aroma of Berlin Tempelhof? We have projects that talk of a change of senses. Specifically a project created by Sissel Tolaas, a Norwegian artist that explores the relationship between the smell, the place, the experience. She produces urban perfumes of different districts in European cities. Another project, ' Tactical Sound Garden' uses mobiles that combine with a series of hot spots in the city where by approaching them they let off a sound or a noise, and you go following these points. So you create a new itinary within the city. Then we have gastronomical tourism. I'm hungry! How important is nature and landscapes in tourism? People travel to get to know diverse places, so nature and landscapes is a big attraction. But in itself it doesnt geenrate touristic activity. This is generated through activities developments what you can do inorder to eat, rest, reflect, etc. The architecture should be as diverse in which it is established. The buildings should be capable of reacting to the climatic conditions, and environment to make that place habitable. Tourism has stopped being an excue to generate profits and has become a possibility to generate infrastructures that offer benefits and have a bigger repercussion for the place where they are. The 'Wave Garden' of Yusuke Obuchi is a floating maritime park that at the same time is also an electric generator. Depending on the quantity of energy that is consumed during the week, the park sinks or raises to the surface. Depending on my environmental responsibility there can be a park at the weekend or it can disappear. The floating tourism project: Mermaid Island created by a danish arquitect Julien De Smedt is a floating resort. They developed it on the premise that the changes taking place in the world happen so quickly... Changing economies and politics, climatic changes, that the whole holiday concept has to have flexibility to adapt itself at any moment to the situation at hand. With this concept, the resort itself will travel from one place to another. And that thing that looks like a space ship? What is it? In Taiwan in the fishing port of Fugee we are building a a new fish market and some restaurants to be able to value the place that has excellent fish and products but a with whose touristic infrastructures are deficient. The building that we have designed is a building that tries to create a microclimate using the strengths of the place. What we do is, given that the temperature is high, we allow a movement of air de achieve greater thermal sensation. For this we ahve created all these containers with chimnies and what they do is make the air escape quickly and the people that are here in the shade, have a nice feleing. We are sendentry with the desire to be nomadic, and discover unique and incredible places. We have the desire to get to know our environment And although this isnt genetic it is inate.
