exhibition Concrete Work. San Sebastián

project report

Since the beginning and throughout this twenty years, my architecture studio has been a space for reflection and action that’s born from the “tireless hope” of a better future. In this exhibition, we show one of the experimentation fields that I’ve worked on, the reinforced concrete.”

This research work started in 1996 with the restoration of Manantiales (Natural springs), the most symbolic work of Félix Candela. Like that, a new path was started in Mexico, the path of attention to the design of the structure as a key factor in the formalisation of the architecture, and to the possibilities of the industry in the development of new materials in favor of rationality and the economy of means. There is also the actual worry about the environment and sustainability. To reduce the consume of material and energy is not just an economic advantage but an ethic need of every citizen of this Planet.

This is just the beginning of an investigation path with ongoing projects. We’ll keep working with the conviction of a more human architecture, an architecture reachable for everyone that will lead us to a fairer society.
