“The tectonic, sometimes brutalist character of some of our works sometimes tries to be a faithful reflection of the abrupt morphology of the volcanic landscape of the islands, as well as the omnipresence of the immensity of the Atlantic Ocean. The field of energy, light, temperature, color that this landscape transmits is an interactive factor that is present in many factors of expressive, textured and tactile levels of the proposed volumes.”
The architects give the key voices with which critics have interpreted their work. Among all these voices, brutalist is perhaps the one with the most critical ambition, since it seeks a stylistic definition that would summarize AmP’s position in a concrete and definitive way.
This monograph that occupies an entire double issue of TC Cuadernos compiles and shows us in graphic detail the work of Amp Arquitectos since 1982, a work whose works, in the words of Gabriel Ruiz, convey to the viewer the intensity of the very personal, of what is done by hand. The heat of manufacturing.
