Philosophy

We believe that research is fundamental for our projects and buildings to possess deep contents that can be translated into vital and lasting experiences.

We believe that to be contemporary is to conceive projects and buildings that could not be understood unless we precipitate them to an uncertain future, knowing that only the passage of time will be able to give them the real value of representation within society. To be really contemporary is to assume this risk.
We have as final aspiration that they acquire, when the time has done its work, this aptitude to represent a society.

We believe that in these times where everything and nothing is valid, where everything is consumed and wasted with comparable celerity, there are spaces where we can move outside of passing fashions. Where we can investigate, develop and propose with the certitude that some of the projects and resultant buildings will have a possibility of installing themselves in the future – which has by then become the present - acquiring thus the status of figures without time.
