'My teacher Federico Correa, in whose studio I worked throughout my degree, always recommended to his students that we not prolong our academic studies, that we not insist on doing a master’s at our university or, less still, at Harvard; that as soon as we graduate we get involved in real projects, as modest as they may be: renovations of houses, offices, shops; that there was no better school than the process of resolving real problems. Following also the maxim of Confucius—‘I hear and I forget, I see and I remember, I do and I understand’—we took heed of this advice.'
Above is an excerpt from the foreword text 'Learning by doing' by architect Oscar Tusquets Blanca ( @oscartusquets ). Our book 'NINETEEN INTERVENTIONS: ARQUITECTURA-G' is the first monograph to celebrate the work of this award-winning, Barcelona-based studio, and rounds off their first decade of practice. The book is available through our website. (LINK IN BIO)
