Rafael Moneo, at the end of his acceptance speech of the position at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of San Fernando, said that "opposite to the concept of arbitrariness one could speak of formativity as a concept that aspires to give reason to the form from the procedure, thus seeking the coincidence between the result, between the physical and tangible object that has been reached, and the logical and formal principles that were present in its origin”.

These words can be perfectly applied to the principles on which Antonio Cruz and Antonio Ortiz work, since their beginnings. This form-generating principle gives them the maximum degree of freedom without renouncing to the complexity of each project; without having to simplify or eliminate variables of the final result to achieve the clarity of their proposals; understanding that freedom is not a denial or personal affirmation but a well-founded choice.
