Resumen del libro

nred architects is a very interesting partnership between two architecture studios, those of Magüi González and José Antonio Sosa, who are linked by their activities as teachers and their attitudes to theory. Tireless researchers, and educators conscious of the social importance of teaching, nred produce architecture with a clear commitment to its time, with a high degree of social and artistic content, and their joint work emerges from the interaction in a multifaceted laboratory of ideas of hands and minds in which specialization plays no part.
The island of Gran Canaria, where the architects who make up nred have their respective offices, is a unique place, a world-scale model in which nature and artifice coexist in the powerful presence of the Atlantic Ocean ' an open, multiple island that simultaneously calls for reflective attitudes and risk, where the architecture is expected not only to live with complexity but also to potentiate it; a region very much affected by construction, where the landscape is artificial, where the coast is a diversified world, and the city has developed into a metropolis, fragile and unstable, that demands attention and care.
This strange condition of metropolitan insularity, coupled with a unique sensitivity to the city and the territory, leads nred to deploy abstract mechanisms that enable them to explore an architecture that works fundamentally with the complexity of everyday life and the multiplicity of the urban landscape. There thus emerges a way of making architecture that is constructed on the basis of a relational logic, anchored in a dual vocation of analysis and practice, that derives from the partners theoretical positioning as teachers and architects.
It is precisely this theoretical, creative and intellectual positioning that underlies the need to work with different concepts which allow them to synthesize and intensify fields that are capable of constructing abstract instrumental groupings applicable to specific projects such as those featured in the exhibition at the Aedes Architecture Forum: La Regenta Centre for Artistic Production in Las Palmas (2005), the Law Courts complex in Las Palmas (2004), the Master Plan for the seafront of Puerto del Rosario (2005), the rehabilitation of the Casas Consistoriales (City Hall) in Las Palmas (1998), the Ruiz house in Las Palmas (2006), the Stretched house in Las Palmas (2007), and the proposal for New Xisi Bei Street in Beijing (2007).
La Regenta is a project for a new centre for alternative art, constructed as a great stack of empty concrete boxes, which configure a series of exhibition areas whose height gives them an industrial character. For nred, stacking, superimposing and juxtaposing are forms of grouping with a non-hierarchical order, in which contiguity is more important than formal structure.
The Law Courts is a complex construct whose functioning is closer to that of a city than a building. The whole is articulated around a street glazed that acts as a natural extension of the urban space, making visible the movements of the people in the interior. Four large blocks of different heights configure an urban profile with a variable section that enacts strategies of coexistence with the neighbouring buildings. In this complex, the concept of the framework replaces closed formal structures with open relational structures. The framework of the project is a link between heterogeneous objects, establishing an open order with a permeable outline that serves to create unity and multiplicity.
