Bauhaus, minimalist agreement | Marcelo Gardinetti

The reconstruction of demolished architectural heritage induces, fortunately, interpretations that exceed the representation of the work itself. These definitions erect parallel or antagonistic positions that cause different controversies, which generally increase the idea of patrimonial value. The reconstruction of the houses designed by Walter Gropius for the masters of the Bauhaus affected by war actions during the second war offered […]

Bauhaus. Collection books and magazines

The Bauhaus was founded in 1919 in the city of Weimar by German architect Walter Gropius. Its core objective was a radical concept: to reimagine the material world to reflect the unity of all the arts. Gropius explained this vision for a union of art and design in the Programm des Staatlichen Bauhauses Weimar (1919), which described a utopian craft […]

From Bauhaus to Our House

Wolfe criticizes the trends of the modern architecture for avoiding any external ornamentation.

He directs his critique the International Style and the Modern Movement exemplified in architects as Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Him. Ludwig […]

Paul Klee: master of the Bauhaus

The exhibition is the result of several years of work in collaboration with the Zentrum Paul Klee in Bern, and it is based on what may well be —after the publication of the artist’s catalogue raisonné— the most significant and relevant research project on Klee of a “structural” nature conducted in the last decades: the critical edition of his pädagogischer […]

Constructing Utopias: from De Stijl to New Bauhaus

Las utopías no sólo carecen de lugar sino de imágenes concretas. A pesar del esfuerzo realizado por Hans Holbein en el siglo XVI para ofrecer una imagen de la isla ideada por Tomás Moro, no ha sido posible generar una iconografía específicamente utópica. Esto se debe, tal vez, a que la utopía es una idea abstracta basada en el orden […]

Ese surgir, nacer y aparecer, donde germina la arquitectura. “La naturaleza será cambiada por […]

Unfocused Appointments | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

In general, and except for honorable exceptions, the architects write regular. In fact, the fact of approaching with such passion a task for which we have not been specifically trained has merit. To support our ideas and convictions we often use a recurring tool: the appointment, a brief endorsement of our argument thanks to the timely support of an authoritative […]

Concentration camp architects | Jorge Gorostiza

Today, when racism grows, supported by groups and political parties that take advantage of hatred to gain supporters and votes, today it is fundamental to remember what happened and nobody could believe that it was happening, because it could not be conceived that educated people, belonging to a advanced country, cultured and European, nor any human being, was able to […]

The architecture in front of the death of the art | José Ramón Hernández Correa

The artistic forefronts always have looked at the architecture of an ambiguous way. On one hand, the artists (painters, sculptors, photographers, poets, musicians …) they have had always the label hung of chisgarabises, and have sought with zeal to put in his troupe some architect, who seemed to give him venerability to the group or movement that was. (An architect […]

And I finish off the series with relief, because it is not nice […]

Unfulfilled promises and dark transparencies | José Ramón Hernández Correa

A few weeks ago a nice anonymous reader left a comment at an entry “The modern concept of architectural space”. The comment was so brief that I copy complete: “very interesting! And the continuation?” What continuation? I did not have conscience of which there had to be no continuation. I reread that old woman entered (of December, seven of two […]

Carving | Íñigo García Odiaga

When in 1923 Sigfried Giedion delivered his speech opposite to the students of design during the week of opening of the Bauhaus, his principal message was of “listening to the material and to uncover the secret life of the amorphous thing”. Uncovering the art caught in the matter it is not necessary to excavate but deal, for that deal is […]

Populism (III) Portela dixit | Óscar Tenreiro Degwitz

The Mission Housing is a program with so many omissions and improvisations as the enormous investments that it has demanded. It was conceived and he manages the affairs privately, between political and professional relatives subject to confidentiality, and progresses with the economic, juridical and professional irrationality that has done to itself characteristic of the Venezuelan petroestado. There do not exist […]

Buildings, many of them, very recognized in […]

Palacio de la república de Berlín. Un patrimonio imposible | Jelena Prokopljević

La construcción del Palacio de la Republica en Berlín oriental empezó unos 23 años antes de su construcción real. Empezó el 7 de septiembre de 1950 cuando Walter Ulbricht, el nuevo secretario general de la SED (Partido Socialista Unificado de Alemania) firmó la orden de dinamitar el Stadtschloss, el Palacio Real y símbolo de poder del imperio prusiano. La destrucción se justificó […]

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 […]
