Emiliano López Mónica Rivera Arquitectos

Un encargo público y un encargo privado 

Emiliano López. Assistant Professor of Architecture, ETSAV-UPC, Sant Cugat del Vallés. 

Emiliano López and Mónica Rivera develop their work turning constraints into opportunities. They find constructive and conceptual responses that are specific to each project and to each site, moving the attention to the value of the everyday life, the discreet and attached intervention within contexts, and to clarity of construction. Mónica Rivera was born in Puerto Rico. Emiliano López was born in Argentina and grew up in Barcelona, where they are based today and develop their main academic activity. They have built with equal success both public works and private commissions in urban compact contexts and open natural environments. They have recently finished the construction of the 4-star Hotel Aire de Bardenas in the south of Navarra, for which they have been awarded an endless number of prizes, the Young Prize of the X Spanish Architecture Biennial and the First Prize AR Awards for Emerging Architecture 2008 among them. Another recently finished public building matches in recognitions this private hotel. Their social dwellings for young people in Barcelona have been Finalist in the X Spanish Architecture Biennial, Nominated for the European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture Mies van der Rohe Award 2009 and awarded the FAD Prize of Architecture in 2008.

Viernes/ Friday. 12/02/2010 13.00 h. Construir en el lugar. Francisco Cifuentes, Palma de Mallorca ( Profesor Asociado de Proyectos y Dibujo, EAR-URV, Reus;  Adjunct Associate Professor of Architecture, EAR-URV, Reus). 

Francisco Cifuentes explains how those places in which only vernacular knowledge dictates how to build lead the architect back to the learning process. Because it is in tradition, in the secular cultural model, in everything rooted that is transmitted over generations, where the architect truly learns his/her craft. Cifuentes was born in Palma de Mallorca and studied in Barcelona. He develops the broadest part of his professional activity in the island, but his commitment to teaching and research make him travel mainland constantly. He studies the anonymous constructions and the historical monuments of Mallorca with the same attention and depth; he experiments and discovers new possibilities of construction with low-tech materials, as thermo clay blocks or cement beam filler blocks. 

He has been Finalist of the FAD 2007 Prize and has been awarded the First Architecture Prize of Mallorca 2004-2005-2006 (COAIB) for the Bunyola single family house. Cifuentes was selected for the Young Spanish Architects-JAE Exhibition 2008, he was the First Prize of Opinion and Honorable Mention for his communication in the Forum Arquia/Próxima 2008, organized by the Caja de Arquitectos. He is currently developing his doctoral research on the “Lonja of Guillem Sagrera” in Palma de Mallorca.  

El arquitecto Francisco Cifuentes, ponente en la IE School of Architecture

Francisco Cifuentes, una de las jóvenes promesas de la arquitectura española, impartirá el viernes 12 de febrero, a las 13.00 horas, una conferencia en IE School of Architecture bajo el título “Construir en el lugar”. La ponencia se enmarca dentro del ciclo “glocal: acting global, acting local”, que imparte una serie de jóvenes arquitectos de reconocido talento que realizan su trabajo desde muy diferentes lugares y enfoques, y que demuestran tener una especial capacidad para sintetizar con maestría un mismo par de opuestos: lo local y lo global. 

Francisco Cifuentes pondrá de manifiesto que los lugares donde el hacer popular sabe construir son los que devuelven el arquitecto al proceso de aprendizaje. Para este experto, “el arquitecto aprende verdaderamente su oficio en la tradición, en lo vernáculo, en todo aquello arraigado a la tierra y que se transmite generación tras generación”. Read more…
