EB 34- Andrés Jaque. Office for political innovation

Tax included

Issue 34 of the magazine "En Blanco" is dedicated to the prominent architect Andrés Jaque and his studio, Office for Political Innovation. While the magazine does not aim to provide an exhaustive review of his work, it offers a glimpse into the depth and breadth of his architectural approach. Jaque, who upholds key ideas such as the inevitability of architecture, the collective production of life, and the expansion of the architectural field of action, sees architecture as a vast and essential field, always open to the unknown.

In his work, Jaque not only produces new objects but also innovative theories, drawing inspiration from Otl Aicher's notion of the "act of projecting," which transcends conventional theory and practice. Through projects like the Reggio School, the Rambla Climate House, and the House in Never Never Land, Jaque seeks architectural answers to contemporary issues, using materials like concrete when their context and characteristics justify it.

Within "En Blanco's" specific focus on concrete, it's fascinating to observe how Jaque and his team don't simply view materials as suitable or unsuitable, but evaluate them based on their context and characteristics within a broader frame of reference. In summary, Jaque's work reflects current themes in architecture, deserving of both architectural and anthropological analysis, always pointing towards a vision of architecture as something inevitable and essential in our society.
