Item description for Fernando Menis: Topography and Materiality by Fernando Menis...

This book explores the landscape influences in the major projects of Fernando Menis. The clear, powerful landscape that surrounds me on the island is responsible for the architecture I conceive and produce. When I think of a new building, I consider its plasticity; I do not see it as a row of objects but as a unified work which begins from its form - a work which conforms. Projects are conceived through their volumes; extracted and moulded, shaped. This is how the landscape of Tenerife was made. I think again about the program, about functionality, and I try to define a program which has the potential to evolve, to grow; volume and functionality. I propose architecture that is needed by the environment. A continuous line of thought can be traced all the way from the first works produced during my partnership in Artengo Menis Pastrana -AMP - right up to the ones now under development in my new independent office, Menis Arquitectos. The projects and buildings shown in this book are good examples of this. The experimentation I engaged in during construction of the MAGMA, in which I collaborated with my colleagues Artengo and Pastrana, led to new projects under development today; the quantity of materials that appeared during the restoration of the Tanque created a unique staircase at the MM House, whereas growing up in a landscape full of banana trees gave this house a faade that resembles the trunk of a palm tree. --Fernando Menis
