Place and Identity within contemporary discourses

True architecture desires and believes in the transformation of its time, through social responsibility of its authors, and the creativity of their ideas, as architects and as citizens, both in the performance of their artistic and technical duties and in their daily routine. Place and identity implies interpreting the conditions of the context as a natural form of citizenship i.e. to accept the context´s character as a collective memory, a palimpsest of architectural and urban encounters, that are able to transmute the conventional into something unique.
