Images of the city. Transformations in the time | Jorge Gorostiza

The cities, in spite of all his blemishes and disadvantages, are the most original, creation notable and typical of the human beings. It does not fit the minor doubt that today the life of our species on this planet might not understand without these built-up environments where we develop our lives. The populations are like the alive organisms: they are […]

Ornamento Journal #2 AALTO

Ornamento Journal is a visual exploration of the formal values of the architectural detail, independently of his constructive purpose. The ornament is a concept taboo of the modern architecture and has been chased by real brutality along the 20th century, though indisputable modern teachers worked with architectural elements that without being decorative were exercising an aesthetic analogous function. Today, a […]

The space of the mirrors | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

The mirrors work as the pupils of a within the walls space, a room outdoor from that they observe us. In occasions there preserve even some recollections of our lives, as the porous and dusty mirrors of the old houses, which seem to examine from the hats and suits to stripes of ours forbears1. Also the mirrors take care of […]

The trade of the structures consultant (II) | Juan Carlos Arroyo

Una buena estructura es como un buen equipo. Escribiendo el anterior post sobre el oficio de consultor de estructuras ha surgido el nombre de varios personajes insignes y uno de ellos, español, que, en mi opinión, es el paradigma del concepto estructural; no en vano escribió Razón y ser de los tipos estructurales, un libro de estructuras que no contiene fórmula […]

The vertical man | Sergio de Miguel

“In the ballet the dancers danzan commonly on the tips of his feet. At first sight this behaviour seems so much artificial like without sense. To understand a so important appearance of the ballet one has to investigate the nature and the meaning of the vertical in the human life.” The vertical: fundamental principle of the classical dance (1926) Akim […]

Fingerprints and coverages | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

The architecture is born from the meticulous arrangement of fingerprints and coverages. In occasions one of them will be sufficient. The fingerprint is established as a vestige, a sign, an engraving or an emergency on the landscape: the land like “the simplest form of the architecture”.1 The fact of extending to the air a protective surface, of stretching a coverage […]

The tables and the architecture | Luis Gil

Is table an architecture? Not, but yes in others some senses. It is not an architecture, because it is not a question of any enclosure or closed domain and to cutlery, it is clear. But maybe yes it is an architecture if we think it as constructed object subject to a few laws of the statics and also of the practice […]

Thinking the architecture (II) | Óscar Tenreiro Degwitz

Article continuation of “Thinking the architecture (I)”. It is necessary to clear what can understand by ideology, a word that is used to  apply only to the politics and produces doubts applied to other human activities. I take this definition: “An ideology is the group of ideas that inciden in elder or lower degree in the characteristics of the practice […]

The trade of the structures consultant (I) | Juan Carlos Arroyo

Can you do the pine with the arms opened 45º? For years I formulated (for me itself) the secret of “having trade”, something that a good shopkeeper must have, a good doctor, a good taxi driver, a good engineer and a good architect. The trade consists of three ingredients, the deep knowledge of the concept, the order of magnitude and […]

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 […]

The Barcelona Pavilion by Grain, ” of fluke? | Rodrigo Almonacid

We might think, at least for a moment, that the Pavilion of Germany in Barcelona of Grain finished so well “of fluke”? Last Wednesday, the 4th of May, 2016 José Ramón Hernández Correa was throwing the following affirmation in his agitator post of Facebook: “To Mies van der Rohe the Pavilion of Barcelona went out for him well of fluke.” […]

To study Arne Jacobsen’s work demands certain patience. His scanty public declarations or written texts demand to be sent to the facts in yes, be perfect these in the shape of building, daily object, architectural project, textile design, drawing, water-color or photography. A minimal distance was separating his study of architecture and his domestic garden, place where it was in […]

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 […]

The beautiful thing and the Sinister thing | Miquel Lacasta

In zones of comfort, that is to say, in known environments, parametrized in advance or structured before in the mind of the individuals, the opposite dualities can manage to make sense. I refer to dualities of the type full or empty, black or white, opened or enclosure, etc. These opposite or exclusive dualities, there work because the recipient of the […]
