Cuarto (Quarter) is a serial publication organised in series of four numbers, with an unspecified publishing regularity. Series exemplify the context in which reflections, analysis and opinions take place. In this case, we deal with Disruption as our area, our ground, but also as our playground. The context of Disruption is the one that encourages us to create this project. The current historical moment forces us to expand the frontiers in which we develop ourselves. We must get used to new environments and their own rules. Contexts determines the way in which we perceive reality, the way we express ourselves and the way in which we are informed.
Language is still a methodological and philosophical barrier. We are accustomed to reenacting the archictectural thinking models in which we are raised, usually in our mother tongue. Therefore, we consider trilingualism as a key for this publication; we reproduce (with unavoidable interferences) all the contributions from the authors in English, Spanish, and French.
Cuarto also means ‘room’ in Spanish. We would like to gather together the environments of our contributors. They portray our generation’s concerns, ideas and criticisms on architecture and its peripheral areas.
