Private/public architecture

The architect who has the huge responsibility to project for everyone, does not have to miss the opportunity to do things right.


They prepare us for the first, not the second. But if life happens to make public architecture, you have to be ready. Your degree pays you, it's within your business and you have to give the maximum, as you yourself are paying your salary, with your taxes, and everyone's. Those words I would say to a colleague who has the challenge of working in public works. Architectural thinking maintains its axis, which is the user, but increases the scale of its thinking, and with this its complexity and influence. The works are projected based on an estimated time of the influence of political management in turn. The longer term the same, the larger scale it probably possesses, and lasts longer, due to the legacy or government marketing intent it possesses. This is the pessimistic view of public architecture, not counting, dealing with corruption, political interests, accelerated times, projects taken out as if they were “great of muzzarela”, etc. Ideally, every person committed to public work should have knowledge and awareness that what isto think and execute is left to us all, and it is with silver from the people. The superficial, aesthetic, the city we will see in 10/20/50 years, is what we think and project today, yesterday, just. Being an Argentine means feeling next door as a family, so the architect who has the responsibility, the huge benefit of projecting for everyone, has to be like a father. Don't miss that opportunity to do things right.
