The Gravity in Architecture
Manuel Ruiz Moriche
“For me, architecture is a constant battle against gravity. Architects work with matter… with materials.
A matter which the law of gravity make it weight. And we have to be constantly fighting for dematerialize them.
Therefore, we give such importance to work with materials.
Materials in their purest forms, with different textures, in order to see how they react to light, to see how those tactile qualities are, which finally are what we feel when architecture is produced. “
