An afternoon in the Home of Jesús Amaral: About the Hybridity of Our Profession

Abstract

In this interview, Jiménez-Montano, Interim Dean of the School of Architecture at the University of Puerto Rico, converses with architect and engineer Jesús Eduardo Amaral, the School's founder. Sitting in his living room, between works of art and family memories, the interview begins with a refreshing and personable conversation oscillating between anecdotes of the School's past origins and a present filled with gratitude. Amaral's duty with the island is evidenced through an architecture systematically linked to its context, in addition to his commitment to architectural education in Puerto Rico. Through an encounter characterized by familiarity and trust, ensue revelatory words that define a profession that navigates between hybridity and purity.
