TORRESGARCÍA

THE STUDIO WAS ESTABLISHED IN 2007. OUR PRACTICE STARTED ON LAS NEGRAS WATERFRONT IN ALMERIA, AT THE CABO DE GATA NATURAL PARK, A PLACE RECOGNIZED IN SERGIO LEONE’S CINEMA AND WESTERN FILMS. WITH THE STUDIO’S OUTSET, OUR WORK HAS BEEN MAINLY CONCERNED WITH LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE. LATER ON, THE STUDIO HAS SHIFTED ITS FOCUS INTO ARCHITECTURE, PRINCIPALLY FOCUSING ON THE CONCEPTION OF CULTURAL PROGRAMS.

THE LOCATIONS OF OUR PROJECTS HAVE VARIED GREATLY EVER SINCE THE FOUNDATION OF OUR STUDIO IN PARIS IN 2011. FROM THAT YEAR ONWARDS, WE HAVE WORKED ON VARIOUS CONDITIONS, PROGRAMS AND CONTEXTS SUCH AS SPAIN, FRANCE, TAIWAN, SWITZERLAND, UNITED STATES AND MONACO. AT THE SAME TIME, WE RECOGNIZE A NEW TERRITORY, EUROPE, AS A BLEND OF DIFFERENT CULTURES, ALL PART OF THE SAME HISTORY. THIS NEW POLITICAL AND GEOGRAPHICAL REALITY OF THE LATE EIGHTIES, IS RECOGNIZED BY OUR PRACTICE AND MATERIAL PRODUCTION AND NEEDS TO BE REPRESENTED THROUGH ARCHITECTURE.

THE CONTEXT AS A LARGE BACKGROUND DRIVES OUR URGE IN REGARDS TO THE CONCEPTION OF A PROJECT. ANOTHER FACTOR OF PROMINENCE IN OUR WORK IS SENSORY PERCEPTION, THE WORLD OF TOUCH, SMELL, SIGHT, AND HEARING. AFTER ALL, THE SPACE IS NOT AN ABSTRACT VOID, BUT ALL THE CONTRARY. CONSEQUENTLY, OUR ARCHITECTURE IS APPROACHED FROM THE IDEA OF THE SENSIBLE SKIN, INTEGRATING ALL KINDS OF RESEARCH TO TECHNICAL AND FORMAL TOPICS, USING THE APPROPRIATE SOFTWARE AND COLLABORATING WITH THE BEST ENGINEERS IN EUROPE.

FROM THE BEGINNING, THE STUDIO HAS WELCOMED COLLABORATIONS FROM A VARIETY OF CULTURES AND LANGUAGES. OUR TEAM INCLUDED MEMBERS FROM ITALY, FRANCE, TURKEY, MOROCCO, TUNISIA, LEBANON, UNITED STATES, BELGIUM, ROMANIA, CHINA, RUSSIA AND SPAIN; AND WHOSE CULTURES HAVE COMPOSED THE ATMOSPHERE AND THE BEAUTY OF OUR WORKSHOP.

JESUS TORRES

JESÚS TORRES GARCÍA IS BORN IN GRANADA, SPAIN, IN 1977. HIS VIEW ON ARCHITECTURE IS STRONGLY LINKED TO MUSIC AND POETRY. HIS APPROACH TOWARDS ARCHITECTURE IS BEST SEEN AS UNDERSTANDING THE SPACE AS A NARRATIVE. HIS PRACTICE EMPHASIZES SCENOGRAPHIC AND SCULPTURAL VALUES, USING SHAPE AS A FIELD OF SYMBOLS, PERCEPTIONS, LANDSCAPES AND HARMONIES. IT IS WELL NOTED THAT HIS STRONG BACKGROUND AS A MUSICIAN HAS BEEN AN ASSET TO UNDERSTAND ALL THESE CONCEPTS LEADING TO THE CREATION OF ATMOSPHERES; THE ATMOSPHERE BEING A FIGURE OF THE SPACE EXISTING IN NATURE.

THIS KIND OF PRACTICE IS BASED ON FREE-WRITING AND DANCE TAKING FORM BY TIME AND LINES AS THE MAIN ELEMENTS. HE HAS NO PREFERENCES OF AN ARCHITECTURAL LANGUAGE. YET, THE ANTROPHOLOGICAL, HISTORICAL, LANDSCAPE AND SENSORY EVIDENCE LEADS TO WHAT HE CALLS AN ARCHITECTURAL ECSTASY.

HE STARTED PLAYING THE GUITAR THE AGE OF EIGHT WHICH ACCOMPANIED HIS EDUCATION AT NATIONAL CONSERVATORY OF MUSIC. IN THE NINETIES, HE STARTED GETTING INVOLVED IN THE NIGHTLIFE OF GRANADA, WHERE HE DISCOVERED COUNTERCULTURE, ROCK, INDIE AND FLAMENCO. HE PLAYED AND RECORDED WITH DIFFERENT SPANISH BANDS AND ARTISTS AS JOSÉ IGNACIO LAPIDO, NIÑOS MUTANTES AND CHRISTIANIA, WITH FERNANDO DÍAZ DE LA GUARDIA AND POPI GONZÁLEZ.

HIS LIFE AS MUSICIAN IGNITED HIS INTERESTS IN SUBJECTS OF SENSORY ORDER, WHICH HAS CONSEQUENTLY LEAD TO HIS WORK ON RECORDING SOUNDSCAPES. THE CITIES OF PARIS, SAN FRANCISCO AND HONG KONG HAVE BEEN THE SUBJECT OF AN ELABORATE RESEARCH ABOUT THE VALUES OF SOUNDSCAPES IN RELATION TO BLINDNESS AND ACOUSTIC PERCEPTION. THE RECORDINGS WERE LATER TRANSLATED TO MUSIC AND THE MATHEMATICAL FREQUENCIES WERE ANALYZED TO ANSWER QUESTIONS OF CULTURAL SIGIFICANCE AND THE MUSICAL SENSE OF PLACE, CONSTRUCTING THE BASE OF A DISSERTATION THAT REPRESENTS HIS INTEREST IN THE METROPOLITAN SCALE.

HIS INTEREST IN MUSIC, PHOTOGRAPHY, CONTEMPORARY ART AND PAINTING GOES BACK TO HIS GRAPHIC DESIGN DAYS DURING HIS ARCHITECTURE STUDIES AT THE ETSA GRANADA. THESE INTERESTS WERE CLEARLY DEMONSTRATED ON THE VARIOUS ALBUM COVERS DESIGNED FOR ENRIQUE MORENTE, AUSTRALIAN BLONDE OR LOS DEL TONOS AND LABELS AS WARNER AND FNAC MUSIC. HOWEVER, HIS FOCUS ON ARCHITECTURE, AS THE MEDIUM TO EMPLOY ALL HIS BACKGROUND, BEGINS DURING HIS YEARS IN PARIS AT THE ENSA VAL-DE-SEINE.

HE HAS BEEN RESIDENT OF THE SPANISH COLLEGE OF PARIS AND THE RECOLLETS COVENT WHICH ALSO INCLUDES THE FRENCH ORDER OF ARCHITECTS AND HOUSE OF ARCHITECTURE IN PARIS, FRANCE.

SINCE 2007, HE HAS TAUGHT AT THE ETSA GRANADA, ENSA PARIS-MALAQUAIS, AND HAS BEEN A VISITING SCHOLAR AT THE FACULTY OF ARCHITECTURE IN HONG KONG. CURRENTLY, HE LECTURES AT THE ENSA PARIS-BELLEVILLE.
