Does there exist ethical domination in handicraft versus industrial construction? Architect Antonio Holgado works alone, away from fashion and is trying to renew the tradition of Spanish low-rise construction.
Antonio Holgado considers himself a master craftsman, "who works almost like the only author of all the processes of an architectural project."
"This allows me, as is the case with a potter, a blacksmith or a cabinet maker, to ensure full participation in what I design. I enjoy it and are honest with those who trust my work," adds the architect.
Holgado, 44, works only in Almendralejo (Badajoz, Spain). The ethics of the artisan, which he defends, can be seen in public housing, built in the province of Badajoz, in the municipality of Cabeza del Buey.
But what is the ethical superiority? Are these houses more sophisticated because they are simple? Because they cost less than 500 euros per square meter (€ 471.17 / m², three of them and 435.49 € / m² - the other two)? Not. And yes. This is because with this price they sought to become an aesthetic and cultural contribution (social advantage and so obvious) to the city where they were built, and an excellent gift for the people who will live in them.
On our site you can familiarize yourself with the most popular projects of houses from construction companies represented at the exhibition "Low-Rise Country".
Let's see why.
The strength of a good architect is in the ability to transform the original problem into an advantage, the highlight of your project. Interesting alignment due to the significant difference in height, structural integrity and innovative solutions make Holgado houses a desirable and, what is important, affordable product for people.
