Time for Architecture


It is time to give Time to Architecture

Time for Architecture


It is time to give Time to Architecture
Architecture without Time will become an Architecture without Truth, Poetics and Reason.

Type of project
  • Systemic changes

Nowadays in Architecture we live in an age lacking in time and truth.
A truthful Architecture needs Time to be developed. Like a soup, we can eat an instantaneous one that we bought in the supermarket and prepare it in two minutes or we can buy all the ingredients and spend one hour cooking it step by step. In the end we will have two similar soups but with two different flavours.
In a time of fast living we should practice a patient Architecture in order to recover reason and poetics for the future.
In the future, we will have to choose between an Architecture made with time, based in truth and suitable to our needs, or some quick solution with a good conceptual work but with poor options.
This project seeks to recall and show the role of the architect in the construction site, his construction knowhow as design ability and the importance of Time to develop in detail the whole project, exploring artificial and natural light, volume, structure details and relations between spaces.
