An open vision

The plans selected by the curator, Peter Moleón Gavilanes, offering an open view of the ability to formalize that each of these architects brings to his work, of the various issues that develop in their projects and the different modes of expression graph that represent them.

Thus, the drawing of architecture transcends its purely instrumental function is understood here as well as an end in itself, as a result that explains and expresses ideas, shows and show content, anticipates and apprehends the effect of the work.
