Collection: arquia/topics
Address: Consejo editorial Fundación Arquia

The arquia/topics collection provides an open space for architectural reflection. It originated from research, difficult to market, but of unquestionable cultural and architectural interest, normally left out of the scope of society. arquia/topics aims to fill this gap by focussing on different editorial topics, not necessarily of an academic nature.

Collection: arquia/contexts
Address: Fundación Arquia / Los libros de la Catarata

The arquia/contexts collection, published by the Arquia Foundation and the "Los libros de la Catarata" publishing house, forms part of the institution's activities and is characterised primarily by the diffusion of architectural culture and bringing the figure of the architect closer to society.

The current "context" makes it necessary to reflect on the role of architecture, through an analysis of the demands of society, and in parallel, approaching citizens with the usefulness of knowledge, services and skills of architects; to consolidate criteria that will allow greater understanding of architectural work and its contribution to society. Thus, we have established four first editorial lines comprising: the current value of the past or the legacy of architects; participation and democratization of architecture; innovation, entrepreneurship and creativity; and finally, architecture and the city.

The arquia/contexts collection has been selected in the 2016 FAD AWARDS for thought and criticism for its editorial initiative.

Collection: formwork
Address: (Luís Martínez Santamaría hasta 2015) Actualmente consejo editorial Fundación arquia

The theory of architecture no longer has the strength and compactness of the manuscripts of old. Its current condition is lighter and more volatile and manifests itself occasionally in articles, debates or interviews. To prevent this knowledge from being lost or dissipated, this collection intends to gather the contributions of certain authors who have reflected deeply about architecture.
