Pensar y hacer la arquitectura: una introducción. Juan Calduch Cervera




Review, Juan Calduch, architecture


The title, Pensar y hacer la arquitectura (Thinking and Making Architecture), is promising because architecture, whether theoretical or practical, is something that offers a great deal to think about and even more to do. As an introduction, it is a work that lives up to everything it promises. With its convenient size, a length of less than one hundred pages, and in-depth content, the book published by Editorial Club Universitario de Alicante in 2013 makes no attempt to conceal its didactic aim. Filled with key words in intalic, it attracts a wide audience made up of both students seeking a first insight into this field, as well as curious amateurs who wish to be informed about matters which affect all people on this planet. Fortunately, it is a book which does not fall into the trap of other books written by experts, books which can only be understood by professionals in the same field, members of an elite club who have their own jargon filled with double meanings, and which hinder newcomers from entering.
