Oll+ Interview



on urbanism

"New styles of work are emerging, some hesitant, others powerful and militant, in which architecture and urban planning are placed at the service of people and society, instead of serving representation and power; new forms of work that defend the poetic capacity of sustainability, its management and its technology; new forms of work with small-scale effects, fully aware of the undeniable potential of micro-architecture and micro-urbanism; new forms of pragmatic yet idealistic work, the heirs of the radical architects’ proposals in the second half of the 20th century which, from idealistic perspectives, gave us a premonition of something real that was just a future promise at the time.”

- Mansilla+Tuñón, 2009
