Last Days to See Alternativas/Alternatives – An exhibition that Honours Innovation in Spanish Architecture
As part of the XIII Architecture and Urbanism Biennale (BEAU) in Madrid, Pati Nuñez will be participating in a round table debate on April 10th 2018. Other participants include the architects Fernando Porras, Immaculada Esteban Maluenda and Emilio Tuñon, and the writer Jose Luis Muñoz.
Within BEAU’s programme, Alternativas/Alternatives presents 89 works that represent a wide-ranging panorama of works from Spanish architects and urban planners over the last couples of years. Domestic projects and small-scale projects take preference over large-scale works, civic projects and grand urban planning.
These are about ingenious and innovative solutions using limited resources. They improve urban environments by responding to specific problems and the resources at hand, and they have the capacity of becoming reference points within time and context.”
“The Spanish architect is highly valued on an international scale,” says Begoña Díaz-Urgorri, architect and co-director of XII BEAU. “And is recognised for his or her capacity to innovate and find the best solution possible, often within limited resources. The Spanish architect is ingenious. That’s why we wanted to honour the value of the existing; the city that is being built on top of a city.”
Juan Domingo Santos and Carmen Moreno Álvarez, co-directors of XIII BEAU add; “This year’s BEAU stands out for a new generation of young architects that bring some interesting proposals. They don’t see economic barriers as a problem, but rather as an incentive and stimulus for proposals that improve everyday places.”
As part of the Alternativas/Alternatives programme Pati Nuñez will be participating in a round table on April 10th 2018. Other participants include the architects Fernando Porras, Immaculada Esteban Maluenda and Emilio Tuñon, and the writer Jose Luis Muñoz.
