Introduction
I'm architect with more than 30 years of work in my own office ( www.luisboado.com ) and professor at the Architecture School of the University of Seville for the last 20 years. my subject is architectural project design. I'm very interested on architectural teaching as much as the creative process. Another field of interest is the use and rehabilitation of historic city centers. I am very interested also in photography and his relation with architecture.

Buildings are alive or not. This life is spread from the life of their inhabitants. In the very moment a building is abandoned, a gradual and unstoppable sort of death begins. First, the dust, then, slowly, disorder and chaos start to fill the space. Little by little, what used to be a building full of life begins to become a ruin. Usually, destruc...

There is maybe no need to insist on the huge importance of re-inhabiting the industrial heritage that has been bequeathed to us and we continue to accumulate at the rate of an increasingly rapid industry obsolescence. This phenomenon takes place in a present-day society and global community that demand urgent sustainability mechanisms or beyond tog...

La primera visita a una bodega de botas en producción es siempre impresionante. No solo es apabullante el espacio, la altura y dimensión de las naves. Igualmente importante en esta primera impresión es el olor, particular y propio, yo diría que es diferente en cada una de las bodegas y sin embargo siempre resulta parecido. La iluminación tenue, la...

Many architectural examples rank among masterpieces for its beautiful and harmonious use of solar radiation. However, their creation had to rely solely on intuition because they possessed a curvilinear nature. As the necessary tools required for evaluating shapes derived from the sphere or the circle were not available, such forms could not be asse...

In the case of avant-garde it is, considering the lack of perspective, very difficult to categorize projects by currents or trends.However there are common circumstances to all projects. The formal and conceptual division between facade and, we could say, the rest of the project works perfectly when understood according to the morphological and com...

En el interior de ciudades como Sevilla es difícil identificar alguna referencia como la forma que tiene la ciudad. Las calles se curvan y cruzan en una trama urbana parecida a un laberinto. El espacio que vivimos es una mezcla de sensaciones y sus interpretaciones sensoriales. Es un espacio formado por intuiciones, símbolos, significados e imágene...
