On december 2010, the Col·legi d'Arquitectes de Catalunya (COAC)1 organized an open competition for the new Editor and Editing Staff of its historical magazine Quaderns d'Arquitectura i Urbanisme  (or simply known as "Quaderns"). Claudi Aguiló, Pere Buil and myself participated in that competition with an original proposal. Amongst the 10 submitted proposals, the competition was won by the one by Chechu Zabala, Mario Ballesteros and Guillermo López.

Despite being a lost competition, we are very proud of our proposal (based on Claudi Aguiló's great idea) which was, above everything else, an innovative (and also very risky) metodological and systematical proposal, based on debates as the core of the magazine and complemented by what we thought it had to be a good relationship between printed media (magazine) and digital media (website). The proposal is summarized in the following paragraph which can be red in page 11 of Quadern's issue #261:

Dialogue between referents to construct knowledge

This proposal defined Quaderns as a magazine designed to construct knowledge through dialogue between five persons of reference, or curators, and the editorial team. The resulting debate was the basis for the contents of each issue, with three main objectives: training, promoting, (the work and reflections of Catalan architects) and showcasing. The blog becomes the magazine's "public" face, a complementary level of information.
