Sausage Factory in Segovia | arquitectamoslocos?

It does little I dedicated an entry of this blog to Curro Inza, and scarcely I mentioned his masterpiece. I did it voluntarily to be able to dedicate an entry to alone her, which deserves it. Campofrío treats itself about the Sausages Factory Postigo, El Acueducto, Campofrío… It has had many names, as they have gone selling or there being […]

The kitchen of the Oíza´s grandmother | La choricera de Segovia

Years ago I listened to Sáenz de Oíza to speak against the excessively functional design, and it put a very convincing example. He spoke that the functional kitchen of the Bauhaus had all the necessary elements foreseen exhaustively, up to the last detail, and all this perfectly modulated and optimized. It was a marvel that in the twenties, while the […]

Consumers and consumers | José Ramón Hernández Correa

Now that us falls the politics, which us falls the ideology, which falls the culture, the faith, the structure … quite, the only certainty that we still have is that we live in a company of consumption and that the consumerism continues being the king of everything. We do not realize, but we, that already we are not (or scarcely […]

End of Career project : An opinion | José Ramón Hernández Correa

There are different ways of finishing a university career. Some of them finish when the last hanging subject is approved. Some? They should be all, not? So not: In some moment it owed someone to of him happening that to throw to the buchaca the last pass was sufficient. Why? I do not know it, but the only motive that […]

Otra charla de Oíza: Mies vs Aalto | arquitectamoslocos

I am nostalgic with my years of school and with Oíza’s chats. I am going to take again the machine of the time to evoke another his chat. Between November, four, 1982 and January, nine, 1983 (this time I know it with accuracy because I preserve the catalogue) there was Alvar Aalto’s marvellous exhibition in the Museum of Contemporary Art […]

Quitar para ganar: ¿Quién se atreve? | José Ramón Hernández Correa

Billy Wilder contaba que para la escena final de la película Perdición (Double Indemnity, 1944) construyeron una réplica exacta de la cámara de gas de la prisión de San Quintín (una cámara de gas histórica: la primera de los Estados Unidos). No habían obtenido permiso para filmar en la auténtica, así que tuvieron que copiarla en el estudio chapa por […]

In casing gift | José Ramón Hernández Correa

The Villa Savoye by Le Corbusier is a masterpiece, and therefore it is many things. One has spoken and great writing on her, and one will continue speaking and writing much more. As all the masterpieces, it is inexhaustible; because not only it is what is, but what each of us we want that it is. I have so that to […]

On the originality in architecture | José Ramón Hernández Correa

A few weeks ago, the inexhaustible library of Javier Echepare‘s images proposed this Nikolai Ladovsky‘s project us. Immediately he us remembered to all much more famous other one, truth?. Certainly, when Javier put this image the response was immediate. We go, that anyone sees. ( In my case, in addition, it gives the chance of which I have the latter […]

Against the architectural symbolism | José Ramón Hernández Correa

In the S. The XVIIIth the neoclassic architect utopista Ledoux designed an ideal city for a new ideal company. One of the buildings of this wonderful city was the Oikema: a “house of the pleasure”. It is not exactly what you are thinking; it is worse. To the citizen (male) of the new company it was necessary to give sexual […]

Aldo Rossi’s lesson | José Ramón Hernández Correa

At the end of the seventies until middle of the eighties of the century twenty (I joust the period in which I studied architecture in the ETSAM), the Modern Movement was already criticized without mufflers. In the school one was speaking about the modern ones and, in general, still one was admiring them, but already the reverential respect had got […]

Pietilä’s pavilion | José Ramón Hernández Correa

The Finnish architect Reima Pietilä, whose better work is maybe the Students’ Center Dipoli, of Espoo (about which we will speak another day), was announced by the Finnish pavilion of the Expo of Brussels of 1958. (Good exhibition. Remember that already we speak about the Spanish pavilion. But there are others very interesting all those, about whom maybe it is […]

The best notary … | José Ramón Hernández Correa

Finland, this country that suggests us efficiency, solvency, education, high standard of living and a heap of good things, has the the highest “general level” in his population, but it does not have too many brilliant prominent figures in his history. (They are not many inhabitants either they do not even have a lot of time). This way, to prompt […]

A Finn in El Escorial (and II) | José Ramón Hernández Correa

Alvar Aalto already had been in the bulls. In Barcelona they had taken the Monumental one to him, and one had spent it very well. Because of it the persons from Madrid thought that already it did not have very much felt to take him to The Sales. This aim already was covered. Actually the Finn did not seem to […]

A Finn in El Escorial (I) | José Ramón Hernández Correa

I have known the ludicrous history of Alvar Aalto‘s trip to Madrid, thanks to Eduardo Delgado Orusco and (once again) to Juan Daniel Fullaondo. I will interpret it very freely, to my way. Do not wait for a great historical loyalty. Or yes. Maybe this delirious story is absolutely true. Maybe it has returned what the exquisite education of the narrators had […]

If there is an architect tied to a city, and, furthermore, if there is an architect tied to the urban development development of a city, this it is Willem Marinus Dudok to Hilversum. Dudok was born in Ámsterdam in 1884, and at the age of sixteen it initiated his military career. It was destined for the colonies of Indonesia, and to […]

The architect Curro Inza | José Ramón Hernández Correa

Francisco de Inza was born in Madrid in 1929 and died in Brick in 1976, with forty seven years newly fulfilled. He was a project teacher in the school of Navarre, and in his pupils and companions it left an indelible fingerprint, but, the truth, in the rest of Spain his recollection lasted little. (I began the career of architecture […]

Lost occasions | José Ramón Hernández Correa

Last month, the companion Joan Carles Sánchez, as consequence of a few comments that we did in twitter on the humility and the simplicity of treatment of the big teachers, suggested me to dedicate an entry of this blog to Alejandro de la Sota; not so much to expose an academic speech as to count my personal experiences with the genius. So […]

On Saturday, the 23rd of February the magnificent program Documents, of RNE, was dedicated to Miguel Fisac: “Miguel Fisac’s architecture: Concrete of meat and bone”. The good architecture ends up by triumphing, and Fisac, which was in the comb of the wave from the beginning of his professional career until the sixties, and that in the seventies suffered an unjust […]

Unleashed Oíza | José Ramón Hernández Correa

Francisco Javier Sáenz de Oíza was a genius. Yes, a genius. In all the meanings of the word, even in her of “having very much genius”. Always he was saying ingenious, creative, stimulant things. It was impossible to know what fertile associations of ideas it was going to do, and it was doing his exciting speech. Unless you him were […]

“I did not say it in the first part, but I believe that it is obvious that this statement I it dedicate to Juan Carlos Castillo Ochandiano (certainly) and (also certainly) to Juan Daniel Fullaondo, in memoriam.” Already I told that I happened this night I worry.

It is difficult to me to write very much this entry, because, though I was in the first row and I did not get lost detail, I did not stop understanding everything what happened. It has been difficult to me years to understand that the whole secret was consisting of the fact that there was nothing to understand; that the […]

The spirit of the hens | José Ramón Hernández Correa

In the first course of architecture of the ETSAM, which for me was of 1977-78, there was a subject (for damned me) that was called “Analysis of Forms”, and whose professor was Javier Seguí. (Another professor of the subject – I believe that it came a little later, but I it do not remember good – she was Helena Iglesias, who […]

I have been in the exhibition about “Photography and modern architecture in Spain, 1925-1965” of the ICO Foundation inde Madrid and have felt a heap of opposing sensations.

I believe that at this point the readers of this blog already you will know that the Government of Spain prepares a law (that of Professional Services, or LSP) that, among other things, it will allow the exercise of the architecture to the engineers. ( We finish of finding out that they postpone his approval: They prolong our agony). The draft […]

Blessed anonymity | José Ramón Hernández Correa

In the nineties for mayor at the time of Madrid, Agustín Rodríguez Sahagún, it had an idea that seemed to me to be very beautiful: To every child who was born in Madrid a tree would be assigned. To the feet of this one a plate would be placed by the name and the date of birth of the baby, […]
