As the ocean is formed especially by water, the architecture is done principally by air. Even so that determines what happens in the ocean, and in the architecture, is not another thing that what is not a water, or air. Continent and content are never unlike, remote, and coincidental.

When we refer to the matter with which the architecture is defined we give for fact that contains air, space, vivid possibility and emotional. But all this capacity “amble”, needed inevitably from matter and weight, from quantity and from force, would not ma sense without his attentive disposition was provoking a meaningful emptiness, a clear absence of matter and weight, a provoked absence of quantity and of force.

Cuando nos referimos a la materia con la que se define la arquitectura damos por hecho que contiene aire, espacio, posibilidad vivencial y emocional. Pero toda esa capacidad “portante”, necesitada inevitablemente de materia y peso, de cantidad y de fuerza, no tendría sentido sin que su atenta disposición provocara un intencionado vacío, una clara ausencia de materia y peso, una provocada ausencia de cantidad y de fuerza.

There is the one who affirmed that

“Aany structure consists in how and where placing the holes”,

and also it sentenced that

“if it is thought about the emptinesses, instead of working with the solid elements, the truth appears…”.

Seeking, in turn, for the skilful similar one of the suit executed wisely by means of material studdings, exact and provoked by the height and the intencio’n of to dress. Understanding the architectural form as an intention so opened like exactly, capablly of satisfying the last needs of the emptinesses.

The architectural matter always arranges what is going to provoke that there is no matter. The order and nature of this matter is such that advances and determines his interruption, his disappearance. The architecture does not exist without absences of matter. And it is precisely the value of what is not a matter what does the architecture. The music does not exist without silences.

The appellant asks of

“how much does your building weighs?”

it should resolve of not immediate form, turning the attention aside what wraps and agrees to an attentive expression and definition of all that that remains contained. Looking in the response for a luck of unit of measure that from his quality comes out of the tons fiísicas to develop the immaterial virtues.

Do we measure?
