HIGH-TECH ARCHITECTURE /
ARQUITECTURA DE ALTA TECNOLOGÍA



Hesperia Tower, Barcelona, Spain

Directorio de obras arquitectónicas y de ingeniería estilo High-tech (Alta tecnología), al que también se conoce como Tardo modernismo. Este importante movimiento, que tomó la base de la arquitectura moderna, se apoyó en la innovación y la tecnología y fue un -período puente- entre el movimiento moderno y el Postmodernismo. Comenzó a desarrollarse en la década de los años 70 del siglo XX hasta nuestros días; arquitectos destacados en esta corriente estilística son Norman Foster, SOM, Richard Rodgers, Renzo Piano o Jean Nouvel, entre otros.

El estilo High-tech ha ido evolucionando convirtiéndose finalmente en estilo Eco-tech (Tecnología Ecológica) o Arquitectura Sustentable, fundamentalmente debido al cambio climático y a la llegada de nuevos materiales, nuevos sistemas de construcción basados en la eco-eficiencia energética, donde los arquitectos e ingenieros de vanguardia han tenido que irse adaptando a los nuevos tiempos haciendo una arquitectura más auto-suficiente. Por este motivo, algunas obras de estilo postmoderno, deconstructivista, arquitectura verde y arquitectura digital o CAD, como se aprecia en este directorio, podrían perfectamente convivir juntas en este siglo XXI.



Directory of engineering and architectural style High-tech (High technology), which is also known as Late modernism. This important movement, which took the base of modern architecture, relied on innovation and technology and was one-time bridge between modernism and postmodernism. First developed in the decade of the twentieth century 70's until today, in this current style prominent architects are Norman Foster, SOM, Richard Rodgers, Renzo Piano and Jean Nouvel, among others.

High-tech style has evolved eventually becoming Eco-tech style (Technology Green) or Sustainable Architecture, mainly due to climate change and the arrival of new materials, new building systems based on eco-efficiency energy, where the architects and leading engineers have had to go to adapt to changing times by a self-sufficient architecture. For this reason, some works of postmodern style, deconstructivism, green architecture and digital architecture or CAD, as shown in this directory, you could very well live together in this century ...
