Architect Victor Navarro seeks to merge sustainable ideologies involving recycled
materials with design and architecture.
"The impact of question, the impact of drama, the impact of form and, above all, the
impact of experience are potentials in all projects of architecture. I believe that design
implies a constant exploration and questioning of living habits and activities, as well as a
pursuit of theory and concept through process of thought, process of construction,
spatial experience and aesthetics in objects. It is my truth and the evolution of my truth
that seek these matters.
To inherit a space is to become aware of and flow with the environment through distinct
design. The change of state of mind is a design process that is dependant of the
environment. Design is relative to that state of mind. Therefore, reciprocity exists
between environment and state of mind.
A space for peace, a space for reflection and meditation. The connection to nature…to
breathe nature, to feel nature inside…the effect of nature and our connection to the
earth. To respect life and the cycle of life. The city is our built home that expands and
expands over the earth. The earth is our source of air and nutrients…it is the source of
the elements we use to build our own environment, our own representation of space."
