Miralles on the complexity of the real

Enric Miralles:

In all my recent work, I think I have been utterly focused on being involved with reality, in other words, always in the midst of contradictions, the difficulties, the misunderstandings, there in the thick of it… When I am asked what sort of architecture interests me, I realize I finally have an answer: ‘architecture that is capable of avoiding demagoguery‘. In other words, architecture that is capable of not hiding the complex reality it starts from.

El Croquis 144, p.19.
