Six Architects free pdf In this book we see the work of six Guatemalan architects, six creative voices who, in an individual or collective form, have redefined and given a poetic spatial quality to the contemporary architecture of their country. Members of the firm known, quite simply, as 'Seis Arquitectos' (Peter Giesemann, Carlos M Lara, Raul Minondo, Ernesto Porras, Rodolfo Solares, Rafael Tinoco), they are exponents of a style with a minimalist touch and a strong commitment to the value of the abstract, the geometrically pure and the spatially rich. Without falling into a reductionist posture, their design proposals seek a primal purity based on ideas which emphasise that form and space shape and adjust themselves to function, without superficial ornamentation, nor the utilisation of rigid axes, nor the imposition of classical orders. Guided by a romantic minimalism, they give a frank expression to the structure that delineates the different ambits they create, giving priority to the light that defines the simple and austere forms of their architecture. A passion for light and natural beauty drives them to establish a dialogue between the exterior and interior spaces, causing architecture and nature to interact and create areas that are strongly illuminated by direct light or by means of great panes of glass.
