The Power of Making: Introducing the Work of AMP
AMP Arquitectos, editors, AMP Arquitectos, Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Spain, February 2006, pages 4 - 5.

"The techniques of salvage and experimentation with construction form part of an approach to architecture in which thinking is done more with the hands, in the making of things, than on the drawing board or from a theoretical perspective...."

"...the essential materiality of AMP's work contrasts with current tendencies to pursue the greatest lightness and transparency. While the latter would seek to dissolve form into the ethereal immateriality of the visual media that dominate contemporary consciousness, AMP offer an architecture resistant to this erosion, an architecture which returns us to a material, existential world of experience and being.
