New tools proyectuales of reference: Productive Landscapes | axonometrica

5.0 01 Introduction Productive landscapes. The idea of landscape has opened a gap in the considerations and the traditional beginning of the body to discipline of the architecture and the urbanism.

Family Architecture | Halldóra Arnardóttir – Javier Sánchez Merina

5.0 02 A quick reading of the PROFESSIONAL ACTION DEONTOLOGICAL RULES OF ARCHITECTS – and I say fast because all our obligations are summarized in less than fifteen short pages – does not mention a word about whether an architect has to question the field of architecture. When, finally, we find an article, the 24th, which refers to our commitment […]

Demonstrate for a new clinical reason in the architecture | Miquel Lacasta

5.0 02 Demonstrate for a new clinical reason in the architecture.1  We are installed in a time disgregado, opened to multiple interpretations of the reality. We advance helter-skelter between infinite clouds of information banalizada and by excess and exuberance, are unable to detect the limits, the solapamientos, the densities and the specific weights of the real. We live in an […]

Building bridges between society and architects | Stepienybarno

5.0 01 What is the distance that separates architecture from society? Or rather to the architects of the society we should serve. On this topic we have tried to get into other post and we believe that it is one of the most important keys to solve today. Architecture is something that, in principle, should matter to everyone, because there […]

Unstable equilibrium | Íñigo García Odiaga

5.0 01 It is said that the classical Greek sculpture reached its maximum splendor when it began to use the contrapposto. This Italian term could be defined as the relation that the different parts of the body establish when initiating the movement. The weight of the body rests mainly on one leg, so that the corresponding hip rises with respect […]

¿Interesa la arquitectura a la sociedad? | Stepienybarno

5.0 02 Nos parece interesante replantear cómo es la relación entre la arquitectura, los arquitectos, la ciudad y la propia sociedad a la que servimos. Y desde Stepienybarno, cada vez nos parece más importante analizar cuál es papel que jugamos los arquitectos en este planteamiento. Así que, con vuestro permiso, vamos a intentar analizar unas cuantas claves que quizás nos den […]

Domestic Strangers (I): The Extraordinary Houses by Kiyoto Ota | Pedro Hernández

5.0 01 Upon entering the Chopo University Museum appear three small houses. We say houses because we recognize them as such: wooden volumes with sloping roofs of a picturesque appearance, typical of the drawings of what for a child could be a house. Its conception, however, is completely outside the canons of architecture: its size is scarce, its interior space […]

In turn they were the epoch of the construction of the imaginary common one. The age of a politicallly active, almost arrogant optimism; At the beginning of the 70, probably for pure law of the pendulum, […]

The transgressions of the Aubette | Marcelo Gardinetti

5.0 01 In 1928, Theo van Doesburg formulated the most transgressive and consistent review on neoplasticism. The design for the interior rooms of Café Aubette exposes the patterns of elementarism, a representation that progresses the neoplastic idea to a spirited dynamic against the orthodoxy of horizontal and vertical dualism. This decision of Van Doesburg produced a confrontation between the most […]

Diseño sin revolución | Pedro Hernández

5.0 01 “Architecture or revolution”, wrote Le Corbusier in 1923. It is a turbulent time, just five years before the world had seen the first workers’ revolution in Russia triumph. The revolution – like its twin rebellion and revolt – is a space for chaos, reverses the established order with a social mass intermingled and turned into a multitude. Le Corbusier, […]

Autoorganization and Cybernetics | Miquel Lacasta

5.0 01 Lately the notion of self-organization has taken a certain protagonism in the conception of the city and the architecture, probably to political / social current recomic singer of the situation. In a sense it can sound to chimera the fact that so much, objects as persons, have a trend towards an organization not programmed in advance. It is […]

The roads of water | Íñigo García Odiaga

5.0 01 The territories are generally sculpted by water. Its absence or abundance determines the appearance of the landscape in which the architectures are inserted, which are nothing more than a small obstacle in the slow flow of water along the surface of the earth. Juan Navarro Baldeweg knows it well, and summed up this idea in the installation and […]

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.
