Interior – Madrid

Paradoxically, the architectural interior is in quite good dialectical shape but in a terrible historical state, practically abandoned for an almost ubiquitous technical approach that resolves the project with an envelope of maximized intensity and an extremely banal interior layout.


Interior is a project view of the impossibility of fully maintaining the modern agenda, and the way this has facilitated the construction of a heterodox heritage which can become part of our contemporary culture.
