According to the UN, violence is a form of discrimination that inhibits the ability to enjoy equal rights and freedoms.

¿Cuál es la arquitectura del futuro?

Los procesos Re- como expiación | Javier Mozas

La Humanidad ha consolidado, a lo largo del tiempo, una morbosa relación de amor y odio con la Naturaleza. Admiración y contemplación, o dominio y sometimiento. En la conferencia que pronuncia Rem Koolhaas en Harvard el 3 de abril de 2009 bajo el título Sustainability: advancement versus apocalypse,1 mostró en las primeras imágenes, una pintura de Caspar David Friedrich, 1774-1840, […]

PLACE´TA | Juan Moya arquitectura

Intervention is a reactive architecture faced to the hostility of urban conditions in the site and to the scheduled mechanicism proper of a lifestyle inherited from the 20th Century modernity. An impersonal crossway with high traffic volume is balanced through a biophilic interior for collective meeting. Being today demands the pass towards metamodernity. The presence of a human being that […]

For what better quality of urban life? | Óscar Tenreiro Degwitz

We tend not to think about the city, or in other words, not to think about the city, but in terms of gratification or conflict. The city pleases us, welcomes us, stimulates us, or the city rejects us, is negative, closes our sensibility. That is why we are able to see in it, on the one hand the bright or […]

Although the district retrofitting approach is frequently the most sustainable and cost-effective, the complexity of decision making grows exponentially when the intervention targets larger scale, even more when considering the fragmentation of the construction sector.
