Definitions| Jorge Meijide

Today the thing goes of definitions, of words that define others. Defining is to delimit and if we notice of Wittgenstein‘s words “the limits of my language constitute the limits of my world”, we will test our limits and will see up to where our world comes. Let’s define for example architecture, not more not less. All the members of […]

The peanut and the shell | Jorge Meijide

For the poet, in the construction of the necessary image to his occupation, the look is fundamental. The poetry, as the architecture, is a search. “The poetry goes out to the light when she is looked and not when one presents it” says to us Pavese1. Without this search of the poetical image, without this search that the attentive and […]

The intimacy | Jorge Meijide

The intimacy For already a certain time I am turning him at about the intimacy. This slippery concept that it has to see with our sphere, since it would define Sloterdijk[1], more internal and that we preserve of the eager curiosity of the world that surrounds us. The intimacy is confused often with the privacy. Both are different concepts. We […]

Everything it has a beginning | Jorge Meijide

Everything it has a beginning The architecture endures to live and to live endures, inexcusably, the inhabitant. Without this one we can speak about sculpture, about certain artistic facilities or about formal games, all of them of indisputable value propositivo, but difficultly we can speak about architecture in his more wide and extensive expression. This one to live carries a […]

Be or not be, about the beautiful | Jorge Meijide

The birds | Jorge Meijide

The birds Occasionally, and only occasionally, in the architecture they give themselves stellar moments. Moments of this that “shine on the night of the ephemeral thing”. Fleeting moments in the time that there unleash more important and lasting actions that they themselves.

Between Ford and Lewerentz | Jorge Meijide

 [1] between ford and lewerentz I confess an impenitent movie fan in his more strict definition[2], though also I can say the same of the architecture. I am also an impenitent architect.
