    I applaud series creator Daniel Davies for highlighting these pivotal
    designers and architects that refuse to accept “starchitecture” status but
    rather apply their experience and passion toward addressing real issues for
    real people in real communities.

    Italian translation: Santiago Cirugeda è un architetto sovversivo di
    Siviglia che ha dedicato la sua carriera al recupero di spazi urbani per la
    gente. Nella Spagna oppressa dall’austerità dove lo Stato se n’è andato e
    quasi 500.000 nuovi edifici restano vuoti, “la gente sta facendo le cose a
    modo proprio”, dice Cirugeda. “In tempi di crisi, le persone si mettono
    assieme per trovare soluzioni collettive.”

    This a good way of making builders ‘nice’ rather than overcharging old
    people :)

    … Santi Cirugeda lleva años haciendo una actividad paralela al
    ‘Stabilshment’ arquitectónico actual, ofrece alternativas concretas para
    ciudadanos que no pueden acceder a la Arquitectura… últimamente muchos se
    apuntan al ‘buensamaritanismo’ haciéndonos ver lo ‘guay’ que es ser
    alternativo y progre. Cuando fueron ellos quienes contribuyeron a crear
    esta estupidización arquitectónica de los últimos 15 años al menos, ahora
    todos se apuntan a la ‘pseudo’ crítica arquitectónica… Allá quien quiera
    escuchar estúpidos cantos de sirena y quedarse con su titular ‘arquitectura
    de guerrilla’…

    This is a stimulating video! it is one of those things that make us realize
    we might be doing a lot of things wrong, and just start all over redefining
    our ideologies.

    *Santiago Cirugeda is a subversive **#architect** from **#Seville** who has
    dedicated his career to reclaiming **#urbanspaces** for the public. In *
    *#Spain** where around 500,000 new **#buildings** lie empty, “people are
    doing things their own way”, says Cirugeda. “In times of crisis, people
    come together to find collective solutions”. So, can **#Spanish**
    self-build legend Santiago Cirugeda turn an abandoned factory into a
    vibrant **#cultural** centre?*
