2nd arquia/upcoming forum Madrid 2010: In contrast

21 and 22 October 2010 &enDash; ETSA MADRID

The 2nd arquia/upcoming forum Madrid 2010: In contrast, was attended by 227 participants.

The In contrast topic comes from the times of economic crisis during which this call was held and how they unleashed profound processes of change within the structures set up in our professional field and those resulting from more recent structures. This title attempts to refer to that which undergoes a metamorphosis in facing the near future, both in terms of how to develop the profession, as well as in establishing new patterns of behaviour towards a society revealing important processes of change; changes generated by a combination of factors that it is not necessary to recount.

The jury of this second edition, made up of Carlos Quintans as curator and by the scientific committee comprised of Fernando Diaz Pines, Felix Arranz, Francisco Cifuentes, Santiago Cirugeda, Javier Mozas and Ricardo Sanchez Lampreave, awarded the 2010 arquia/upcoming prize, worth 15,000 euros to the School Canteen Type by LA PANADERIA (Rubén Alonso, Eva Morales y David Canavate).

1st arquia / upcoming forum Valencia 2008: Orígenes y desacuerdos’

29, 30 and 31 October 2008 - Paraninfo. Rectorate building. UPV

The 1st arquia/upcoming forum Valencia 2008: Origins and disagreements was attended by 385 participants. In an open discussion format, it analysed the architectural and sociological conclusions drawn from the 769 accomplishments presented in the 2006-2007 edition of the arquia/upcoming biennial by the 286 architect participants.

The topic of Origins and disagreements reflects the beginnings of the programme. It encompasses the development and systematic start, in a proactive way, of the documentation of the principles and results of those that begin their careers as architects in Spain; and it also encompasses disagreements, forgetfulness and prejudice as the basis of a conflict, a debate that in its relation to reality, and especially to future models of teaching in Spanish schools architecture, may contribute to the social revival of architecture as a collective reference of essential service to people and knowledge beyond market processes or emotion as exclusive public values.

The jury of the 2006-2007 edition, made up of Félix Arranz as curator, Marta Cervelló, Sara de Giles, Patxi Mangado, Carmen Pinós, Emilio Tuñón and the sociologist José Miguel Iribas, awarded the 2008 arquia/upcoming prize, worth €15,000, to the Vallecas eco-boulevard project by Ecosistema Urbano. The Opinion prize was also awarded to the project with the most votes from the public, House for the painter Damià Jaume by Francisco Cifuentes, as well as the Communication prize to the project Drawings for the 4th encontros internacionais de arquitectura: identities of the author Roque Viejo.

The 2008 arquia/upcoming catalogue "orígenes y desacuerdos" (origins and disagreements) was presented with 128 accomplishments chosen by the jury.
