The act, which will be opened the public, will take place at 18:00 in the assembly hall of the Campus Barcelona of the UIC and will serve to know his creative positioning. The isolated theories cannot catch the complexity of the architecture of the moment, but with the opening towards a great variety of cultural possibilities, the review of the daily details, the fragility of the constructed spaces and his transformations from the economic situation, questions can be provoked on our implication in the history.
” The contemporary architecture is obsessed by the formal invention and a constant search of the innovation. We are interested in the culture of the architecture and our work is an extension and a critique of the same one. The originality is not our worry, we want to be honest and to declare the artistic influences of our forbears as creative resource. The innovation in if same it seems to us to be useless and pathetic. We prefer the unsightliness of the characteristic thing to the perfection calculated “, assures the architect.
