YOUNG SPANISH ARCHITECTURE

VISITING FACULTY PECHA KUCHA

What is the situation of the young Spanish architects after an economical and real estate crisis like the one that occurred in 2008? After an educational process under the shade of a pessimist atmosphere and diminished hope, a new generation of architects emerge with the aim of proposing new points of view as well as new opportunities for professional development. Dealing with precariousness and immobilism , this generation puts forward renewed perspectives for fields which have been traditionally bogged down and generates strategies based on approaches directly linked to reality (urbanity, participation, cooperation, ...) With a holistic and multi-scale approach to contemporary issues, these young architects seek to propose solutions but above all to raise new challenges for the future. MarĂ­a G. Aranguren, Jorge Pizarro and Jaime Sanz are part of this generation.

MARIA G. ARANGUREN, JORGE PIZARRO and JAIME SANZ are visiting faculty at UVA School of Architecture for the Spring 2018 semester. They join us from the ETSAM (Polytechnic School of Architecture in Madrid, Spain) and are teaching, along with Anthony Averbeck and Margarita Jover, in ARCH 2020 - FOUNDATION STUDIO: HUMAN INHABITATION.

Join us to hear more from our visiting faculty through this Pecha Kucha presentation.
