Assembling | Íñigo García Odiaga

Assembling is for definition the action to join pieces or parts, and implies the that cannot be waived appearance of a meeting. Often it is the expressiveness of the meeting the one that makes the architecture legible and understandable, since it is there where there has remained registered the information on which the construction is based. For the eye of […]

The deformed form | Íñigo García Odiaga

Light Boxes | Íñigo García Odiaga

Louis Kahn managed to assure that a space where it should not enter the natural light, might not considered an architectural space. The affirmation though maybe slightly exagerate, it is undoubtedly suggestive. In fact the architecture in one of his multiple definitions might decide as the art of controlling the light, and control her in addition depending on the climate […]

The face of the city | Íñigo García Odiaga

Already for years the city has gained his pulse to the field.

micro Urbanismo | Íñigo García Odiaga

Often when we think about urbanism, we visualize big real-estate operations of transformation of the city. The European cities seem to move to the pace that marks the construction of new neighborhoods, of new developments that in occasions have managed to duplicate the existing city. This urban methodology, besides slightly advisable, is demonstrated totally uselessly when it is a question […]

Spatial construction | Íñigo García Odiaga

If it was trying to summarize in a word which is the last end of the architecture, from an academic point of view, the agreement would be impossible, but no doubt, one of the words with major consensus would be the term space. The space, the construction of an interior isolated of the environment, can be understood as the first […]

The enthusiasm for advancing and for crossing new ways has done that the contemporary architecture has managed to revile even the traditional systems of construction based on the brick and on the workforce of a bricklayer.

Dead space | Íñigo García Odiaga

The summer, the vacations and the leisure invite to going out to the street, to conquering the public space and to socializing. Often the current urbanism, centred on what we might be call the development of the downtown, leaves other spaces to propose scenes to these summer activities. In the edges of the city the left spaces, the dead spaces […]

By Parts | Íñigo García Odiaga

The architecture unlike other artistic works, dragged by his own functional definition has presented  many times along the history like a sum of pieces, of stays or of parts. This system compositivo reappears in the architecture more vanguardista, that contradictoriamente does alarde to escape of the composition. That somehow the functionalism, that is to say the proyectación of architectures by […]

Rural architecture | Íñigo García Odiaga

There exists the widespread idea of which the contemporary this architecture tied inevitably to the urban thing and therefore to the density of the great city. Nevertheless in territories or companies of life intimately tied to the field, the landscape or definitively the nature, the modern architecture has made way for itself in the rural environment. The rules are different, […]

The third space | Íñigo García Odiaga

The city is one of the paradigms of the human activity, and probably it is impossible to define it without alluding to the intensity of the relations, the exchanges and the connections between the citizens, that it is capable of generating.

The explosion of the architecture of the spectacle is directly tied to the urban phenomena and maybe for problems on a large scale, budget or function has eclipsed the architectural debate of the rural thing. In these areas the most awkward contemporary architecture tries to establish new links with the context across the update of the local tradition. During possibly […]

Constructing there | Íñigo García Odiaga

During the years precrisis many architects filled the front pages of the success in the press. It is maybe this attitude the one that has supposed that compares the profession with one of the reasons of the crisis and that the architects do not show now a great moral authority. Evidently a part exists in these lines indeed but, if […]

Liquid mass | Íñigo García Odiaga

Though it could look like a terrible contradiction, already from the 50s, architects like Michael Fisac have experimented with the liquid properties of the concrete. A like cement mass that acquires a stony condition after his plotted one, but that in origin is a fluid that allows to treat it as an effective form. The concrete therefore adopts the form […]

The values of the autoconstructed cities. The economy of the globalization, with the current crisis between his modals, drags without concessions to the contemporary company towards a major imbalance between classes; maybe forgotten in west but not much less in the emergent countries.

Local geometries | Íñigo García Odiaga

The places, the landscapes, have a personality, a character, a stamp that at some time has been defined as a Genius Loci, a local spirit. To preserve this character and even to amplify it is the last aim of any artistic or architectural work that leaves of the urban territory and that faces the nature and the landscape. In the […]
