    Anteproyecto de Centro de Salud tipo C con uso mixto del sector Bellavista - Azogues
    (Universidad Católica de Cuenca., 2024) Mora Mejía, Daniel Santiago; Reyes Rodas, Deisy Katerine; 0302703756; García Calle, Anthony Alxander
    This work establishes several constructive and functional aspects for the proposal of a preliminary design of a Type C Health Center in Azogues - Bellavista. Currently, the safety index has been applied in the leading medical facility of Azogues, “Hospital Homero Castanier Crespo,” revealing infrastructure and capacity issues in meeting urban needs, which is critical for local, architectural, economic, and social development; thus, the generation of an architectural solution to decentralize equipment use is proposed. Therefore, the main objective is to design a mixed-use health center in Bellavista in the Azogues canton, addressing the deficiency of facilities in the sector. This research is descriptive, focusing on reference analysis, theoretical bases, on-site data collection, intervention area assessment, architectural documentation, and functional and constructive aspects consideration. It is also proposed to know the primary needs of the area’s inhabitants to define their activities and needs. Finally, a preliminary project is proposed using techniques and strategies obtained from reference analysis to define the spaces and functions, generating a guide for learning and continuous improvement of uses, typologies, and urban architectural regulations for health facilities.

    Elaboración de adobes utilizando lodos generados en la planta de tratamiento de agua potable de Tixán en la ciudad de Cuenca.
    (Universidad Católica de Cuenca., 2024) Alvarez Abril, Wilson Diego; Quesada Molina, Wilson Diego; 0103243457
    The main objective of this thesis project is to develop a viable technique for elaborating adobe bricks using sludge generated in the water purification processes at the Tixán plant in Cuenca. The aim is to comply with the norms and regulations established in Ecuador to guarantee the quality and safety of the products manufactured. An exhaustive investigation of the adobe bricks manufacturing process will be conducted to achieve this objective. Data from the Municipal Company of Telecommunications, Drinking Water, Sewerage and Sanitation (ETAPA-EP by its Spanish acronym) will also be collected to characterize the sludge generated at the Tixán Drinking Water Treatment Plant. With the samples collected, mixtures will be made, varying dosages and percentages of sludge to be replaced from 10% to 40%. Test adobe bricks will be made with a minimum of 60% sludge, which will complete their final process. Ten percent of the elaborated adobe bricks will be tested for compressive strength. The results will be analyzed to determine the optimum dosage of the materials used. Based on the analysis, the final test units are expected to meet the established adobe bricks standards (if any) and document the viability of using alumina sludge in their production, representing an economic and environmental benefit. Additionally, this technique is expected to allow for time and resource savings in quarrying and the final disposal of sludge. The outcome of this thesis project will be a sustainable and efficient technique for producing adobe bricks using sludge generated in water treatment processes.

    Diseño de una propuesta arquitectónica del nuevo Mercado Minorista en la Parroquia Machángara, sector Ochoa León
    (Universidad Católica de Cuenca., 2024) Bernal Méndez, María Augusta; Toledo Toledo, Jorge Fernando; 0150510287
    The Research Project is based on the Land Use and Management Plan of the Municipality of Cuenca and the ‘El Barranco’ Organization to make a design proposal for a retail market in the peri-urban area of the Machángara parish because there is no infrastructure for the development of commercial activities in the area and on the other hand, to prevent the displacement of the population towards the city center. Consequently, the research begins with a literature review to determine the theoretical-architectural guidelines applicable to the design proposal through case studies and normative regulations. Subsequently, the immediate context is analyzed to determine the design parameters to be incorporated into the project. Finally, the user's needs in the area are analyzed through the pre-feasibility studies provided by the ‘El Barranco’ Organization. The results obtained from the research include the application of functionality criteria to generate habitable spaces for commercial activity.

    Propuesta de rehabilitación del edificio de la Coordinación Zonal 6 del Ministerio de Salud Pública en la Ciudad de Cuenca (Ecuador)
    (Universidad Católica de Cuenca., 2024) Sanmartin Bernal, Darwin Xavier; Aguirre Ullauri, María del Cisne; 0107139867
    This work studies the problem of the lack of an architectural rehabilitation project for the Zonal Coordination 6 building of the Ministry of Public Health in Cuenca. To address this, a qualitative investigation was conducted based on documentary analysis of current regulations, similar cases, and theoretical foundations applied to the building case. The process includes defining heritage rehabilitation guidelines applicable to the case study, analyzing similar cases, and evaluating the architectural characteristics, regulations, construction aspects and heritage values of the property through a historical compilation, current architectural survey, and diagnosis of pathologies. As a result, a strategy and proposal were formulated, offering a viable mixed-use solution for the building. This is evidenced in the development of a preliminary rehabilitation project for the building’s mixed-use, aiming to improve the interventions and generate a positive impact on the conservation of Cuenca’s architectural heritage.

    El equipamiento como estrategia para potencializar la salud y la educación de los habitantes del sector Cerro Monjas Huayco. Anteproyecto arquitectónico
    (Universidad Católica de Cuenca., 2024) Montenegro Moncayo, Montenegro Moncayo, Geovanny Fabricio 0106781867; Reyes Rodas, Deisy Katerine; 0106781867
    This degree project aims to design a preliminary design of a mixed-use facility, particularly the implementation of a Health Care and Education Center for the inhabitants of the "Cerro Monjas Huayco" sector since such a facility for most of their users is required. The objective is to improve the quality of life of the inhabitants, who cannot access these services within the sector and, therefore, opt to travel long distances to the parish of Turi or the downtown of Cuenca. Thanks to this project, the urban-architectural characteristics have been increased, which helps the economy by adding a garden terrace (above the educational center), which serves as a viewpoint of the city and its surroundings, enhancing the local tourism industry, which is currently under development. The study responds to a clear and urgent need that became evident in the qualitative and quantitative studies. This contribution aims to restore the currently deteriorated condition of the area.
