The Architects' Diary

The Architects' Diary


FINAL_FINAL | First dpr-barcelona Writing Grant
Write a parallel diary of the six creatives involved in the project with the main scope to present hidden values of architecture and the way the process of creation (imagination, multidisciplinary approaches and innumerable iterations among many other tasks) are applied to reach compelling outcomes.

How 6 European practices approach the challenge to create an architectural event? Different problems and challenges have to be faced, making use of creative and unexpected approaches, the hidden value of architecture.
I propose the genre of the diary. Each practice is presented with their personal development process making possible to compare the way problems are faced and resolved, the tools used, the kind of questions that arise and need to be answered with tight deadlines.
A diary is not only made of text: sketches, collages, diagrams, pictures or other techniques will show the personality of each practice. It is a great challenge, since it requires a deep understanding of each participating team, as well as a close monitoring of the activities carried out. The main risk lies in the difficulty to find the balance between the author's own voice and that of the architects or groups presented. The aim is to presenting 6 projects and their development, not just the formal outcomes.
