Artículo de David Cohn en Architectural Record

In the house that Iñaqui Carnicero has built for himself in Madrid’s rolling northern suburbs, the architect declares allegiance to a classic Modernist discipline, following a Madrid tradition that leads back to one of his influential teachers, Alberto Campo Baeza, and to Alejandro de la Sota and other pioneers of a renewed Spanish Modernism in the 1950s. Carnicero’s design reinterprets Corbusian prototypes—the strip window, the crisp rectangular volume raised on pilotis, the double-height interior living space overlooked by balconies and a sculptural stair (made of aluminum and crafted by artist Eduardo Cajal). But he also addresses contemporary concerns, including principles such as thermal inertia and passive airflow.

El estudio premiado con el Design Vanguard 2011 !!!

A fault line runs through the architectural profession separating academics from practitioners, thinkers from doers, those who imagine from those who build. Straddling this line, and connecting the realms on either side, are emerging architects who both teach and practice. It's a difficult balancing act to pull off, but it often spurs an exciting form of creativity shaped by tension and risk-taking. Many of the architects in this year's Design Vanguard epitomize this kind of back-and-forth career, combining academic research with the nuts and bolts of delivering real buildings to real clients. From Berkeley to Barcelona,  and Glasgow to Winnipeg, partners in many of this year's firms have established a fluid relationship between intellectual exploration and making projects happen. In doing so, they enrich both spheres of work. Firms shown here are bridging other types of divides,  too, crossing national boundaries, for example, and connecting eras by tapping the spirit  of traditional buildings in works of modern design. —Clifford A.
