"Looking for a modern city that can only have a new order that needs to be redefined from time to time."⁠

"During the design genesis we are influenced by all the examples that come to mind by analogy, but these would not be of any help, indeed they would produce lifeless copies, if we did not start looking for the meaning of what is being built, of its ultimate reason.⁠

⁠This is where analogical thinking applies. Not only between the ideas and compatible forms but also between the forms being defined and those that we find in history, which allow us to express a judgment on the forms of our project.⁠

⁠A double analogy, which on the one hand allows us to verify the validity of our ideas and, on the other hand to compete with the forms of history.⁠

⁠From history the forms are not transported, they remain in the time that generated them, but the ideas and emotions that those forms provoke in us are. ⁠

⁠Only this way, through the recognition of those ideas and the experience of those emotions, we will able to find new forms capable of representing the values ​​of our time ".⁠

Giclée art printing papers
Hahnemühle German Etching - This heavyweight paper has a slightly warm base tone and a strong mottled texture. It creates a print with strong colours and deep blacks that feel rich and high in contrast. This is due to the texture of the paper enabling it to hold more ink and capture the light. The German Etching is one of the heavier weight Giclée art printing papers. With its weight and strong texture this paper gives an artwork a handmade crafted feel. Hahnemüle German Etching is a robust Giclée paper, meaning it doesn’t tend to fray as much at the edges.
