Joaquín interviewed at La Opinión newspaper

“We always work on spaces with special opportunities, that can have an interesting potential either over academic and social field.”

Joaquín is interviewed today at La Opinión newspaper, talking about his work as professor at Universidad Francisco de Vitoria with the project placed in the interesting city of A Coruña and its port. Due to the movement of the main instalations outside the city, new opportunities emerge and architecture must be there!

ARQUITECTURAS QUE MULTIPLICAN_logoMULTIPLYING ARCHITECTURES is a design project by idearch-studio that works on present housing, searching for elements of a minimum materiality, but maximum transformation of internal life of the house, with the goal of thinking a new way of using contemporary housing in relation with its new models of users.

We work with very simple elements, those that belong to everybody’s memory in their houses, giving them new alternative functions, and so multiplying the internal uses of the house.

So far, MULTIPLYING ARCHITECTURES has worked on next specific projects:

Tomorrow, our lecture at the SCA, Buenos Aires: “EMPTINESS AS CENTRAL CONCEPT OF THE PROJECT”

The SCA Architectural Association at Buenos Aires, through the Subcomisión de Concursos and the Centro de Estudios del Hábitat y la Vivienda (CEHyV-FADU-UBA) invite you all to participate in the Lecture that we will give tomorow 17th September at 6 pm in the Auditorium of the SCA, placed at Montevideo 938, CABA.

The title will be “EMPTINESS AS CENTRAL CONCEPT OF THE PROJECT ” and we will talk about some of our last competitions and projects, with special atention to some of the common lines that we have developed. Although working into different questions concerning program, place or scale, certain constant elements appear in their design. The talk will take into consideration the character of project research, fundamental for us, presenting some of these elements, and developing especifically the “emptiness as oportunity” as the core idea of the project.

I International Conference MATERIAL STRATEGIES | Plant Architecture


The Research Group Arquitecturas Ocasionales [AA OO*] at Francisco de Vitoria University organizes the I International Conference MATERIAL STRATEGIES | Plant Architecture. It will be developed the 3rd and 4th October 2013. We can read in their presentation:

“Plants have been widely used as building materials both within different vernacular traditions around the world and as part of more recent proposals that attempt to take advantage of their insulating properties an their low ecological footprint. Within vernacular architecture, the use of plants as building components can be traced from the mudhifs in Irak or the hay reinforcement of rammed earth walls, up to the green roofs of Asturian teitos or Swedish stugas. Now, these vernacular techniques are being rediscoverd and becoming updated in architectural designs that seek to profit from their thermal qualities, their availability and their low enviromental impact.”

Publications_U(r). Urban Strategies for Social and Spatial Reformulation

This is our new publication! It is a collaboration with Urban Habitat, the Research Group at the UFV University. We have been in charge of all graphic design, photographies and as researchers we have participated with an article called “Architects in cities. Three words for a necessary change in their role and discipline”


Publications_Coexistences. Tomorrow and Tomorrow

We are happy to announce our participation in COEXISTENCES. TOMORROW AND TOMORROW with the article “About the logic of Elevated Streets now. Projected utopia and citizens realism”. The article tries to emphasize the need for a new search of spaces of opportunity in the critical present day; contrary to the idea of architecture as building objects, now what society needs is an architecture that builds processes in infrastructural simultaneity.

“While the built and the solid are now beyond control – subject to political, financial and cultural forces in a perpetual state of flux – the same is not true of the void, perhaps the last subject about which architectural certitudes are still convincing.”
Rem Koolhaas. Urban Planning Competition for New Town of Melun-Sénart, 1987

Flowscapes, a Design Studio at UFV

Hemos inaugurado el curso en la UFV con la presentación de Flowscapes, el taller de proyectos que tiene como objetivo repensar la infraestructura y el paisaje de la desembocadura del Rin en Rotterdam. Será un curso excitante que incluirá ,entre muchas otras cosas, charlas de diversos invitados y un prometedor Workshop que tendrá lugar en colaboración con la Universidad de Delft, donde viajarán los alumnos el próximo Noviembre. Os dejamos el link al blog!

We have presented Flowscapes at the UFV, a Design Studio that has the goal of rethinking infrastructure and landscape of the Rin’s estuary in Rotterdam. We are sure that it will be an exciting experience that will include, among many things, lectures of several guests and a promising Workshop that will take place in collaboration with Delft University, where the students will go next November.
