When we approached the Flores & Prats firm, we wanted to focus on their precise drawing just as much as their detailed mock-ups. We wanted to see a project that not only “values the time invested and accumulated in it but also sees said time as a virtue and not a defect;” an indication of paying attention to the process as well as the unexpected. (In this sense, it reminds me of reading about how to draw a forest, among other things, in “Las tardes de dibujo en el estudio Miralles & Pinós“).

We conducted a long-distance interview with the Eva Prats and Ricardo Flores studio for this reason; to get a better idea of their thoughts on the impact of drawing on architectural representation.Their input makes clear the “why” of their decisions, and explains not only how they operate in a contemporary context but also indicates their relationship with construction among other disciplines.
