LINE 1. Theory, Place and Project

Santiago-de-Molina-Rodríguez
Santiago de Molina Rodríguez
Line Coordinator
Explores the conceptual dimension of Architecture and Urban Planning, analyzing, reviewing, interpreting and proposing creative design solutions. To this end, thematic areas such as formal composition, cultural memory or historical interpretation will be included, assessing the compromises between work and place in a variety of contexts: geographical, urban, landscapes, and socio-cultural. Research into creativity is essential to the development of a methodological body of work, enabling professionals to deal with projects in a consistent manner, while furthering their social commitment and improving quality of work, whether it be architectural elements or urban areas.
