About 

My work as an architect is interested in a solid, comfortable, rich architecture spatially and efficient. I try to achieve the highest standards of quality with the minimum possible resources.


Good architecture, for me, is achieved through quality space, formal and constructive. It's making spaces easily livable, durable and beautiful.


Thus, importance is attached to the essentials. As the master Mies said "Less is more".

THE CAREER OF ARCHITECTURE TODAY

The career of architect currently has a major burden of expertise, provided by different areas within the program of studies as the structures of the building, technical construction, refurbishment of buildings and services, as well as the integration of comprehensive urban planning concepts and, from a more humanistic vision, education in history of architecture and art.

The degree of architecture is one of most complete undergraduate degrees, by the theoretical-practical and técnico-artístico content that develops, although this may lead to be considered the most demanding.

Once the stage of student, the architect has the option of continuing with their postgraduate training that allows you to delve into certain specialties that allow an advance their knowledge in different areas of the profession: construction, planning, rehabilitation, landscaping, etc.

The architect is a professional who needs to be in a process of continuous learning. The same professional activity exposes him knowledge and expert analysis of the rules and regulations, to technological developments (new constructive systems, implementation of materials, etc.) to the changes experienced in the society, the cultural evolutionary processes and determine or modify the natural environments.

THE PROFESSIONAL EXERCISE

The architect has exit career options within the task of conceiving the design, plan and undertake the construction of a project management. You can participate in all phases involved in its preparation, drafting and promotion, bearing capacity for the coordination of all the details, from the initial phase of the project to supervision in the implementation of the same.

The qualifications offered in the High technical school of architecture is enabling for the exercise of the profession of architect. This profession is regulated by laws such as the building planning law and regulations laying down its powers even in the field of urban planning.

Most common is the architect that ends his career to engage in tasks associated with its formation, in the realization of Basic projects, implementation and direction of works. These projects can be new or it may intervene in projects of conservation, rehabilitation or restoration of old, historical buildings and/or certain cultural and heritage value. It should be noted in this section interior design projects, covering a wide range of possibilities in the rehabilitation and restoration of interior spaces.

You can also focus on other tasks that have to do with the building sector such as the drafting of expert reports, appraisals, measurements and ratings.

Within the field of urban and regional planning can also participate in the drafting of planning, urbanization, studies of environmental impact and landscaping projects; in the drafting of plans, studies, fillings... etc.

Statistical studies confirm that 78% of architects who complete his college career wish to exercise as liberal professionals, independent or associated with other colleagues. Even, that you try to integrate multidisciplinary groups to create societies from the business point of view. If not, seek to integrate groups of professionals in the private sector that are already consolidated as design, consultancy or management offices.

The professional pursuing his activity in a liberal manner should be colegiar in some official College of architects, which functions as regulator of fees, administrative and legal tasks, supporting the activity of the professional group.

Professional development can also be found in the public sector which is accessed, by opposition, labour or administrative contract, and can make the exercise of the profession within the State, regional or local administrations. There is a possibility, moreover, through competition established a link between these administrations and professional or entrepreneur through service and technical assistance contracts.

Architects can exercise teaching in academia, in public or private, academia within universities and above all offer the degree of architecture, but also can exercise teaching in teaching media in subjects such as technology, plastic education, design aided by computer... etc.

Escuela Técnica Superior de Arquitectura de Sevilla (ETSAS), Sevilla, ES, BArch, Edification

Technical architecture is a qualification of single cycle, with a duration of 3 years, where he studied everything related to complete any type of building construction process. You should not be confused with architecture (a discipline more artistic, dedicated to the design and the projection of the building) skills and the origin of the two are different, but today is absolutely necessary its joint action in the building. But both titles are intended for various fields that are not shared. Require capabilities in physical and mathematical sciences; in drawing; capacity of abstraction; be orderly and rigorous; and capacity of effort.

Training as a technical architect acquired all the necessary knowledge to carry out the execution of a work: facilities, structures, construction systems, economy, legislation, direction of work, quality, safety, organization, materials, drawing, etc. Such training is eminently technical.
