Dialogues with cityscape. EMBT’ proposals for institutional buildings

Antonio Millan Gomez, Luis Giménez Mateu


The interpretation of context is an initial step in several Team X architectural proposals (Aldo Van Eyck, Alison and Peter Smithson, De Carlo), it is also the case of their friend Enric Miralles. Mutual infl uences are perceptible in several works, providing a touch of freshness to current architecture, also the understanding of complexity when exchanges between varied layers are produced in built structures and the urban domain in which they are included, demanding a precise reading of existing conditions prior to any project proposal. The affinity of ideas makes the transference of strategies for abstraction especially fruitful, with singular methods to analyze scales and the territorial domains in which their action is inscribed, aspiring to a continuity between them.
