Architectural Design & Plannification
Education should allow multiple scenarios and exchanges, should explore interior-exterior possibilities and should facilitate interaction with the community. Architectural education could promote these explorations. ITESCH is a project, in the city of Quito Ecuador, that aims for a flexible approximation of architectural education. A project that introduces multiples uses and integrates the community as part of it. Materiality as tectonic expression for architecture is a key stone. This project is result of a collaborative research with clients and educators. It covered from concept design and program definitions, areas and stages of application; master plan and architectural design, until final technical drawing, engineering coordination and approvals. Graphic representation and renderings were carefully worked to express the project intentions. Currently under construction. To be due in 2021.
