In a recent visit to Lisbon Kazuyo Sejima said that in critical times like these it was essential for young architects to explore other areas related to architecture. Luis Urculo does just that. And for some time already. Probably one of the most interesting architects of his generation. He’s “interested in the peripheral side to architecture, the processes, developments and approaches that can be manipulated, sampled and translated to other scales and adapted to the work as it takes shape.”. Actually, being peripheral in this case becomes more of an asset to the core (other traditional architects) than a minus (Mr. Mansilla and Mr. Tuñón would agree, I suspect). His latest work is called Covers and it’s “an investigation about architecture as a consumption object or souvenir and its relation with the domestic non-specialized language of everyday things”. Remarkable.
