The revolution will begin when everything that surrounds us is capable of generating, sending and processing this information passively. And is able to transform itself thanks to this information: welcome to the era of the Internet of Things.

Awareness of the continuum

Awareness of the continuumThe urban structure of a city has always been understood from the perspective of density, in terms of its filled spaces. Today's sensibilities lead us to consider it in terms of its empty spaces as well; in a kind of return journey that leads us to question the nature of our streets and urban spaces.

Thank you for this dream!

Gracias por este sueñoIt would not be difficult to provide a theorem to assert that the vast majority of important inventions in the history of mankind would end up, sooner or later, transformed into weapons with a thousand twisted, ingenious and unpleasant devices: fire, metals, radioactivity and drugs. What is not so common is that the person behind the discovery would end up realising this fact. And what almost never happens is that he makes a more or less questionable attempt, even in philosophic terms, at redemption. And that this is taken very, very seriously. This was the case of the creator of dynamite, that invention that revolutionised the mining industry(1), by Swedish chemist Alfred Nobel, who rapidly realised that the military uses of his invention would surpass civilian use in no time at all. The weight of dynamite, indeed, continues to be the measurement unit of all explosive power today, including nuclear.
