ABOUT SPATIAL QUALITY

This is about how a design production interacts with the space.

The space in all its meaning: the inherent to the element itself, interior space, enclosing or enveloping space and the context either natural or urban.

All architectural intervention generates these spatial conditions. It’s about forming an ability to evaluate the own production and review it, when required, (it is or may be almost always) to successively increase this architectural project conditions.

 

ABOUT FORMAL QUALITY

This is about evaluating the quality of way in which we define and model space (spaces) that shape, as I said, the architectural project. This shaping, or the form, can precede the own space or be its subsidiary.

It seems that a complex and intense situation occurs when the interaction is simultaneous.

In the same way that the architectural project spatial quality is the result of the creator’s purpose for enhancing the project’s cultural effectiveness by increasing the spatial quality, the formal quality is an objective that isn’t found by fate, is the result of the effort in optimizing its coherence with space engaged in a rigorous and creative process to approach the matter and its construction.

 

ABOUT FIGURATIVE QUALITY

A project’s figurative quality depends on the technological condition with which form is built and is also a form generator in the near grounds.

The same way in which form and space aren’t necessarily cause and effect, but reciprocal consequences, architectural figuration may precede the form’s expression, and/or also be simultaneously generated with the form’s modeling, even in the spatial program itself.

Spatial, formal and figurative quality is not the result of a lucky finding but of an identification, evaluation and revision proccess until attesting levels for the architectural project cultural effectiveness are reached.
