UNTITLED (Mixed Media)


Master Studio: Analogue Digital Production

Cristina Díaz Moreno | Efrén García Grinda

This semester, the ADP platform proposes to intensify contact with reality as it is, to critically address the problem of the new and, by extension, that of the production of novelty from the perspective of the discipline of architecture. We will approach the world around us consciously, acting with a mixture of intellectual curiosity, creative practice and an inquisitive attitude. Students will examine the mechanisms involved in the emergence of the new, and will study the cultural, social and technological processes to which the creation of any cultural artefact is inevitably linked today.
As a necessary step in reconnecting the discipline with the reality out there, we propose to act as technological inquirers, examining the processes of technological and cultural production in the digital era; approaching them critically without any kind of nostalgia, with the conviction that the practice of architecture is an activity of a public nature and –perhaps– one of the last physical manifestations of this nature.

Students will explore how to assemble new forms of beauty that overcome the usual intrinsic contradictions of practices based purely on subjective individuality and arbitrariness. The studio’s approach will reject nostalgic entrenchment and will, at the same time, open every aspect of the definition of our artificial environments to the complex scenarios that surround our practice. Manifestations of the new in our discipline will be found by embracing the complexity and inextricability of our world, not refraining from studying it in depth, and connecting them in significant ways with a vast array of technological and cultural materials, in a multiplicity of links with the things out there, without privileging their origin or affiliation.
For this purpose, we propose to recover the power of spatial organizations, to explore the problems deriving from their material nature and tectonic behaviour, to work with an aura of beauty, and to understand questions of human perception, geometry and colour as intrinsic problems of our discipline, but also to consider architecture as a fundamental basis for human activities.

Playfully embracing the most radical experimentation, and introducing several levels of reading and heteroglossia (discursive multiplicity), students will develop spatial modifications of our environment as small cosmologies that will be both a reflection and an alternative to the complexity and inextricability of the contemporary condition of the world around us, of its precariousness and brutality, but also of its strange and fascinating beauty.
