DQ/MANUS, USFQ's Magazine of the College of Architecture and Interior Design (CADI) presents, in its first issue, a broad vision of the city of Barcelona. This consists of two aspects: one based on tests carried out by CADI professors and the direct experiences of Ecuadorian architects in Barcelona. In other words, it is a theoretical and experiential approach. The other is made up of representative works by Catalan architects invited to the XIV International Architecture Forum - Barcelona: this being almost a timely and conjunctural condition.

The above, however, gives us clues as to how the magazine is intended to be structured: thematically, with theoretical and practical visions. The relationship between thought and work will be the central emphasis.

I believe, without a doubt, that there is a space in the country for a magazine with the aforementioned structure, a structure that will be flexible, moldable, and inclusive.

Articles and short opinions in context or not with the central theme of the magazine.


Articles of agents of recognized social, professional, and/or academic solvency, national and international, that frame their position on the subject of the corresponding cover. They are “foundations”: clear and concise expositions, the ingredients for a real debate, which make the position from Ecuador and from outside Ecuador very clear regarding the issues raised.


Dossier made by the editorial team that documents extensively and makes a complete review of the cover theme as a mosaic of the work of the agents involved, is a work of documentation and research that is completed with brief external glances and a graphic record in which identifies architectures and architectural situations in process.


Information in extended file format, architecture projects built and duly documented. Professional photography, diagrams, and complete planimetries.
