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 […]

Terramotourism

On 1 November 1755 an earthquake destroyed the city of Lisbon. Its impact was such that it displaced man from the center of creation. Its ruins legitimized Enlightened Despotism. Lisbon today is trembling again, shaken by a tourist earthquake that transforms the city at cruising speed. Its impact displaces the inhabitant of the center of the city. What new absolutisms will […]

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 […]

With oranges he understands himself! | Juan Carlos Arroyo

The experts say in learning that the biggest effort that the human brain does in all his life is to learn to count: to be capable of relating a number (abstract concept) to a quantity of something and specially, that this quantity costs for different things, three horses or three flowers.1 All the human beings we manage to crown this […]

The section of the World | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

The idea of hoarding the universal history of the architecture, the sculpture and the painting, amazes and pulls down to equal parts. If the chamber of the exchequers forms a part besides a domestic program, we are before a seductora entelequia of to live: the life like permanent dip in the culture; the collection like the representation itself of his […]

In 2011, Vicente Serrano publishes the book Spinoza’s wound, where it approaches, from the philosophy, the topic of the happiness. In the chapter v –Biopoder without ideologies– it exposes and analyzes how, actually, any way of being able tends to control, to order and articulate any thing that falls down under his influence.

Do we organize well the studies of architecture? | Stepienybarno

Son ya muchos años los que se lleva poniendo encima de la mesa que los estudios de arquitectura funcionamos de aquella manera y nuestras bases empresariales son cuando menos dudosas.

Peepholes and telescopes | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

The look crosses the contemporary city a bit lost between signs, asphalt, walls and luminous labels: impermeable surfaces. The system also shows inaccessible hollows as the foreign window from which to be able to feel discreetly observed. The urban eye scarcely penetrates a couple of meters in the shop windows, the interior of a vehicle, the black after the window […]

El pasado 20 de noviembre 2015, Anatxu Zabalbeascoa, mientras moderaba la estupenda mesa redonda de Siza x Siza, comentó que la obra del maestro portugués, más allá de sus evidentes bondades, tenía el plus de que estaba pensada cuidando todos los detalles -incluso el poco tratado tema de la limpieza del proyecto-.

Theories and history of the contemporary city

The contemporary city is an uncertain creature. His condition of sumatorio of social and economic, cultural and political, temporary and spatial variables turns her into a multiple puff-pastry difficult to apprehend. Infinity of theories and histories they go decades trying it, from what it has derived a doctrinaire equally vast and complex corpus. The aim of this book is to […]

In occasions a fragment hides the traces of the totality.

Entered the 21st century there has vanished the city of the technologies of the information that were prophesying, a few decades ago, the futurólogos disguised as gurus.

It turns out interesting to revise the bold Messianic predictions that the […]
