I. OPEN CALL MATERIA ARQUITECTURA #17: Studio / Office: Place, Agents, Production.
It is currently hard to single out the studio as the only traditional space for architecture learning and the office as the only space for professional architecture practice, as new pedagogical methods are overlapping on the known teaching canons, and new design practices rewrite the conventions of the profession. A permanent access to internet and cloud working are blurring the boundaries of the architectural office as a physical place, the changing economic conditions during recent years lead to new work methods and forms of partnership among the agents involved in project design. For their part, architecture schools explore other design research methods to expand their academic output. These new architectural studio and office models coexist with the most conventional forms, and despite their differences, we accept them both as the spaces from which architecture is made.
Materia Arquitectura # 17 poses to evidence, examine and question the different configurations of the studio and the office of architecture from three factors: the place (physical and virtual), the agents (and their interactions), and the productive dimension (both in academia and in the profession). We aim to shed light on new critical perspectives regarding the relations and conflicts between these factors, as in both the studio and the office, the disciplinary and professional paradigms of the architectural project are put into play, the cultural model of the architect is built through its design actions, and the operative frameworks that catalyze this work are defined. How do these places and their new configurations influence the way we learn, design, research and build? And, what new questions arise for understanding the architectural practices nowadays?
