Can Habitatges Sabates

We propose an experiment Methexis. Methexis opposed to mimesis, would be exploring the conditions that make something happen. What triggers or facilitates. Understanding the architecture not as an association of interests between fine art and an environmental issue but as a practical art (ars techne) or a job that serves a purpose other than himself. Production of a human interface. We wanted as well, raise social housing in accordance with the specific opportunities of our time and context. Our intention has been to exploit the hidden potential new standards within the definition of existing legislation. Therefore we wanted to produce housing that does not feel obligated finding a style that often accompany the architect but to develop a set of ways of doing originated naturally, sometimes with immediacy, from the strategies of the project. An architecture for a complicated time.
