Enrique Duarte Aznar (1957)


In our workshop, we focus on the Human Being, with aspirations and needs, feelings and justifications, dreams and will to be happy. It's not enough to build spaces, we must create atmospheres where the users could have the possibility to satisfy their physical and spiritual demands.

We focus on the Site where will be built our projects, because the relation between humans and Nature is made of respect and harmony. We talk about Domestication instead of Domination or Depredation.

We focus on the Time, because Architecture must belong to Present and project itself to Future, never be blocked into the Past denying its own time.

Our Responsibility is to read and interpret these parameters in order to propose a personal response for each case.
