- Iñaqui Carnicero Architecture Office is a space of thinking where ideas emerge as a balanced combination of three activities : building, research and academia. Principals Iñaqui Carnicero and Lorena del Río, both currently Visiting Professors at Cornell University, bring together extensive and diverse building experience. Our offices in Madrid and New York define a bridge of conection to explore new solutions of architectural exchange between both cultures.

SYMMETRIES: Conceptual reconsideration of the past and its projection into the future has been a dominant theme throughout the history of architecture. This could be considered to be especially relevant today as a counter-force upon the on-going fascination with the avang-garde in many architectural schools and also given the current cultural and economic crisis which encourages a critical revision of inherited methods and protocols. In this context, the idea of “symmetries” emerges as a powerful concept for revisiting old urban tissues, particularly those which rather than encapsulating the past have opted for a creative and dialectic relationship with it, as occurs very eloquently in the city of Split. The emergence of a new city inside old Diocletian’s Palace conserving its original structure for a different use may give way to tracing and documenting the different symmetries (or a-symmetries, or equivalences, or opposites...) between now and then as a platform of possibilities for the future of Split. Student will therefore explore these latent symmetries with a variety of architectural, artistic and observational tools.
This workshop is a joint-venture between Madrid’s Architecture School (ETSAM) and Split’s Architecture School (GAF).
