Process and Development

Four Experiences in Time and Space
Many current projects tend to become detached from the "fundamentals" of architecture, not so much in the picture, in language, what the motivations and processes that generate the main features. The architectural discipline thus seeks to respond to ongoing changes in a world that has accelerated its transformation processes (social, economic, production), as compared to the usual design methods seem to lose their capacity for analysis and critical interpretation. The layered and complex landscapes that make up the contemporary world have undermined the approaches to the project derived from the disciplinary tradition and architects need to work within constantly changing material and cultural contexts, governing non-linear logic, market fluctuations and the basic parameters in which the morphological and compositive paradigm and formal ability of the author are not the "center" of architectural production.
The forms of contemporary architecture can not therefore be conceived as the results of formal compositions based on balances between parties that take a value essentially figurative. The rules and control systems of the existing shapes are derived from operational strategies rather than formal theories and configurations were open and not uniquely determined.

It's a Building; Recycle it!
The second life of materials and buildings
Environmental crisis, economic crisis, increasing gaps between developed and underdeveloped countries, management of primary resources and polluting cargoes, worldwide impact derived from the first phase of globalization. This is the scenario in which is moving the architecture of the second decade of the twenty-first century. A state of crisis that has not yet been exhausted and which forces the contemporary society to become aware of the finiteness of its energy and environmental resources and the fragility of global economic systems.
But if awareness of the economic crisis was felt around the world this is not just for the current state of “environmental crisis”. Even today, some fields of science deny direct relationship between climate change and the policies of Western industrial societies and some of the emerging countries. Governments themselves are struggling to build effective control protocols on global environmental and energy consumption.
