UNION OF ART AND ARCHITECTURE BY ALEJANDRO DE LA VEGA ZULUETA
 
Alejandro de la Vega Zulueta’s work as both an artist and architect transpires in parallel. When stuck on an architectural project, he often turns to his drawings and the manipulation of forms as a path to liberating his mind to overcome a sort of architectural equivalent of writer’s block.

“My inspiration is often derived from the process of problem-solving, but I am never far from architecture, If I am working on office design and I encounter a space that needs to be filled, I start to imagine how different shapes and forms can fill that void.”
- Alejandro de la Vega Zulueta

De la Vega Zulueta approaches his art as a function of what he sees, what he intends to build, and the materials that he has in mind. With drawings and sketches in hand, he leverages the power of modern technology, using digital techniques to bring his designs to life through parametric diagrams and 3D printing. Infusions of light then create variations of form, resulting in unexpected contours that animate his multifaceted sculptures.

“Architecture without light is just a dark space, But by strategically placing light on the pieces, I am able to control the shadows and volume of the work.”
- Alejandro de la Vega Zulueta
