FreshLatino represents a selection of fourteen Iberoamerican architectural offices which are appropriating the format of video-installation in order to communicate their creations: some are minimal buildings; others make the transition between contemporary art, performance and architecture or propose a fresh modus operandi when exploring the complexity of the contemporary city.
FreshLatino is conceived as documentary platform that enables nexuses from both sides of the Atlantic, re-drawing a new cultural geography. The young architects are tackling the city and the research of the urban structure in a different way, steering new strategies of interaction, a new "approach".
From here one can structure a network for exchange, information and cooperation in order to develop alternative proposals focused on understanding and envisagement of Latin-American territory, Spain and Portugal, based on the strategic use of new technologies, the exploitation of emergent systems. Further, it takes into account biodiversity and definition of a transversal way of thinking that seeks to materialize Iberoamerican contemporary identity.
If we accept the idea that America was the laboratory of modern movement in an uneven and fragmented form, which is today the role of Iberoamerica in the landscape of emergent architecture and contemporary thinking?
