Architype Dialogue presents

Fernando Romero

What was the most difficult issue about working within this building type or the most unexpected challenge that may have influenced new thought in your project?

To work in this economy means needing to support cost efficiency for every single solution, and a building of this complexity requests an unlimited amount of energy.

Did this project expand or evolve your role as an architect in any way? In general, do you feel that the role of the architect is changing on current projects?

Architects need to more and more create innovative organizations where technical intelligence from different teams can be applied for solutions in buildings.

How is your building possible today in a way that it may not have been before and how have trends in technology and society inspired new thought and solutions?

Architecture is a translation of a specific context in a structure that solves functional problems.

In the context of this project, how is your office and design process being influenced by current trends in academic curricula and incoming young architects? In turn, how are current projects and processes guiding the ongoing reformulation and development of academic curricula?

The office is an open platform where innovative experiementaion is open to several different backgrounds of collaborators. We connect young, energetics, innovative design with high end technical experience.
