Agustín Lagreca Herrmann and Federico Borges Pérez from Uruguay
Our professional activity has to do with the development of architecture projects, individually or in multidisciplinary teams, and academic activity (teaching and research).
Brief information about the projects that you/your company have been involved with. For instance, what scale have you focused on/preferred, any significant projects where the company/ individuals have been involved?
We have worked on small, medium, and large-scale projects, covering architectural programs for housing, laboratories, multipurpose spaces, etc.
What does architecture mean to you and what is the role of an architect in your society?
We do not know the answer to this question, but our architectural practice has to do with the exhaustive study of the spaces we inhabit to solve complex problems that involve society as a whole.
Why do you participate in architecture competitions?
Architecture competitions are an opportunity to put into practice the knowledge that arises from academic research.
What advice would you give to individuals who struggle to decide whether it would be beneficial for them to participate in architecture competitions?
We do not give advice, but we can pass on our experience: architecture competitions are an opportunity to put into practice the knowledge that arises from academic research. It is a laboratory instance that allows us to develop the architecture project.
