Manifiesto

PPAA is driven by an architecture of ideas over an architecture of forms. We conceive architecture as an open medium and message, one that is constantly put to test, to the multiple relations that are in its surroundings. We follow an inclination for nature, where the weather, soil, textures, and other factors—along with the gradients in each factor—create a sensorial atmosphere. We like to think that the way we have of understanding architecture implies that work cannot be done without considering both communal and personal intentions. Therefore, our conception of architecture is based on an understanding of the body and the relationship everyone establishes with their surroundings. Taking this into account, each project seeks to be an extension or support of our experience, personal as well as spatial.

We believe that this can be summed up in the architectural rehearsal, which is the way that modern architecture should be understood. The architectural rehearsal is a vehicle of approaching ourselves; the more we rehearse, the more we understand us. Furthermore, in order for architecture to be capable of conveying an idea or intention, it has to speak of the individual, or the sum of individuals, and the way they relate to their environment, in both a sensorial and emotional level.
