Practice Ideology

Architecture goes beyond the contemporary moment we live in.

Anonimous was founded as an act in which the attitude of a project is defined; taking the responsibility of reading and interpreting the different condition surrounding a project, such as, nature, context, humans, society, sustainability and economy.

We interrogate and research remarking the principles of liberty, relationship with nature, dialogue with the context, sensorial fullness and the natural coexistence of man and spaciousness. Architecture is created by the relationships that human beings are developing with the place and then with the constructed space. We believe that the act of building is what gives meaning to architecture.

We believe in the principle of duality between local identity and universal sense; respond to what the earth gives us generating identity through local principles and at the same time listen to us as universal beings.Considering that the goal of architecture has an enormous social responsibility.

We understand ourselves as beings that through the act of imagining and building we intend to serve.We consider that the attention is not in the object but in the experience.
