Habits are the invisible architecture of everyday life. Researchers tell us that every day, repeated about 40 % of our behavior, so our habits shape our existence and our future.

Many times our habits don´t satisfy, routines involve activities that deep down we do not like perform, we should be able to create us habits to be happier, healthier and more productive. So if we want to change our lives, we start changing our habits as a great way to start. But observation of our environment does not encourage these kinds of changes and raises another question: the environment, in which we live, is what we want? How can we change our habits if around us stopping us?

Invisible Architecture aims to help the environment, foster the strengthening of our habits. Constructions that blend in with the landscape , integrated university campus , semi – camouflaged stadiums, almost ghostly buildings … It is the invisible architecture , the chameleonic architecture that adapts to the environment but fighting ostentation, that not only damages the landscape but which aspires to join him. It is the architecture you want to go unnoticed, if possible mimicked with the landscape, because the scenery is king and everything else must undergo.

Sustainable Architecture or Eco-Architecture

Let’s talk about Sustainability, about Sustainable Architecture or Eco-Architecture. We could say that our world it’s divided between those who respect the planet and try to protect it, and those who simply live in it. What makes the difference between them? The capacity of showing solidarity with the place we inhabit, our home. The hard part, as being said lately, it’s to believe in what isn’t obvious, in what we can’t see or prove. The denial of anthropogenic climate change belongs to a skeptical scientific trend that supports the theory of   global warming not being the consequence of our behavior.

If we are able to interact with the digital world and to adapt ourselves to the new technologies, aren’t we able to see that each year our planet it’s warmer, or that the ecosystem has changed? At this inflection point, it seems clear that climate change is the result of centuries of biological changes of our planet. On the other hand, it remains difficult to accept that the whole world belongs to us. Many believe that “it doesn’t belong to anyone”, when it actually belongs to us all.

From ancient times, we have been building on this planet with basic materials such as soil, stone and mud. Industrialization came afterwards and now we are going back to the origins: we are building up modern structures as an ecological alternative to help the planet. In that sense, sustainable architecture as an architectural trend itself is leading the design and construction of modern and smart buildings through the new path of eco-architecture. Let’s contribute to build a better world by supporting the role of the architects in their quest to build sustainable projects.

High-Tech Architecture: a lifestyle for the future

Our lifestyle has changed. It was hard to imagine 50 years ago, the level of technology we would have nowadays. We have self-driving cars, devices to make purchases and even humanoids; all of them are part of modern innovations. In the Digital Era the intangible things are as important as real things; our daily life and our way to interact have changed.

It is hard to conceive a world without the benefits of technology and we can say for sure that our daily life and communications never are going to be as they were before. Time runs faster every day and everything around us too, while we can use devices that make our life apparently easier. Current architectonic tendencies are not exceptions to our technological world and as a consequence of that, architecture has changed in order to modernize its designs.
High-Tech Architecture has been promoted since 1960 and its characteristics have been changed over time. In the beginning it was common that construction materials were industrialized: glass walls and steel structures and the interior assembly of the structures. Beams, ventilation and stairs were exposed to the residents. Nowadays this has changed: High-Tech Architecture tends to sustainability and prefers materials oriented to preserve the environment. This tendency is known as Eco-Tech Architecture.
