Social architecture

Architects would have to be aware of the non-private space, on which they do not charge fees but intervene


Definition of Architect by Wikipedia:

The architect is the professional who is responsible for designing, designing, directing the construction and maintenance of buildings, urbanizations, cities and structures of various types. His art is based on reflecting on concepts of dwelling, under social needs. He is a professional with a higher level of education, who requires a deep technical, artistic and  social training.  Designing buildings,  urban spaces  or various structures and ensuring the proper development of their construction and maintenance is the consequence of this  reflection  , generating an environment and living spaces for the human being.

It is necessary to separate the terms Architecture of Urbanism. Although in our country the title enables both, the knowledge to do urban planning is acquired by the architect as long as he constructs during his training and experience a social awareness and a capacity for reflection on the influence of urban intervention, both of a masterplan, or individual houses or urban furniture, encompassing them as elements that form the urban space, which have on the daily life of people from the use of the public space designed or resulting.

Each house, private or public building, has a responsibility in the construction of the plot, influencing the public space, on which each architect should reflect and intentionally and not ignore.

The building code regulates this in relation to the plot, but not in relation to uses of ground floors and contributions to the public environment. The bars on the municipal line, the raised towers and their shadows, the bad designs of income and exit of people, are all factors about which decisions are made and have to have a thought of “what I am going to generate doing this”.

In conclusion: architecture is not only in itself, but also has several other disciplines that collaborate with each other and on which its performance is intervened. The social character of architecture is essential and irrevocable. Not all architects are urban planners, but they would have to be aware of the non-private space, about which they do not charge fees but also intervene.
