La extinción de los cuerpos | Pedro Hernández

Apuntes sobre la posible trasformación del espacio y lo sensible en un capitalismo acelerado. Acelerar En La durée poignardée, René Magritte nos ofrece un paisaje surrealista en el que una locomotora emerge del salón de una casa burguesa a través de la chimenea. Sobre ella destaca otro elemento: un reloj. El diálogo entre ambos se establece, además, en que el círculo […]

Otra vez el star system | Óscar Tenreiro Degwitz

En los tiempos de la primera modernidad se dio forma a un marco ético que tuvo mucha influencia como moderador del natural deseo de construir de todo arquitecto. Hoy los principales rasgos de ese compromiso ético se ocultan tras los guiños filosóficos postmodernos y esa suerte de indiferencia a todo orden moral que los acompaña. El arquitecto estrella de hoy, […]

Dynamic systems | Miquel Lacasta

The dynamical systems are a methodology developed from the area of the management by the teacher of engineering of the MIT, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Jay Forrester, and it serves to analyze dynamical phenomena of any type by means of the construction of models or malingerers with the help of a computer. The dynamical systems proposed by Forrester are […]

In a new pragmatism | Miquel Lacasta

In the acquaintance I free The craftman, Richard Sennett  pleads for a return to an attitude, the craftsman’s attitude, which seeks in every moment to do the things well. This generalismo, opened and diffuse at first, remains perfectly outlined along four hundred pages of the book up to constituting an authentic allegation towards a return to the culture of the material […]

Underworld | Íñigo García Odiaga

Architecture as a society has its low funds. These dark and hidden places, in which life goes differently. The refinement of luxury and pageantry have been lost in those spaces, to give importance exclusively to that which is essential. In 1957, Le Corbusier built Santa Maria de La Tourette, a floating convent on the green slopes of Éveaux, on the […]

Coches ¡malditos coches! | Stepienybarno

El problema de la movilidad es uno de los frentes que consideramos más importantes a la hora de aspirar a ciudades más sanas y habitables. Sin embargo, muchas veces, quizás por su aparente obviedad, se pasa por él de puntillas, sin darle la trascendencia que tiene. A su vez, es un tema que nos interesa especialmente, porque creemos que, si […]

De nuevo Finlandia | Óscar Tenreiro Degwitz

Durante la visita a la casa que ocupó en Helsinki, hoy conservada con el mobiliario y objetos originales y mensajera de una juventud y frescura que asombran, la joven que hace de guía nos comenta que Alvar Aalto no había sido profeta en su tierra, que se criticaron sus edificios, que hubo quejas sobre la pertinencia urbana de algunas de […]

La enseñanza de Finlandia | Óscar Tenreiro Degwitz

Debo una lejana admiración por Finlandia en gran parte a la que me trasmitió desde hace ya muchos años Domingo Álvarez, quien la tiene a raíz de su devoción por Alvar Aalto (1898-1976) arquitecto fundamental. Por eso he querido siempre visitar ese país. Y ahora, cuando a propósito de ese posible viaje buscaba los datos del Arq. Juhani Pallasmaa (1935), […]

The plant and the ruin | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

I remember the first time I had an original before my eyes. That pencil-drawn plant contained all the information necessary for the execution of the project: dimensions, levels, finishes, materials, types of walls, ceiling height, program, support, relationship with the immediate environment … More than a plant we could say that it was a map, a latent structure in a […]

Containment walls | Íñigo García Odiaga

Probablemente la foto más conocida de la guerra fría es la capturada por Peter Leibing el 15 de agosto de 1961. La imagen refleja el instante en el que el suboficial de la guardia de fronteras de la Alemania Oriental, Conrad Schumann, salta el muro de Berlín, aún en construcción en el sector francés de la capital Alemana. Más allá […]

Opportunity limits | Íñigo García Odiaga

Border spaces, barriers and links. The old frontiers, geopolitical barriers that operated from the territorial expression of the sovereignty of a country, are blurred at present, configuring intermediate spaces, which define areas of opportunity. They are also the regions in conflict, which show more clearly the tensions and concentrations of activity that borders introduce into the territorial continuum. While these […]

Elegance and efficiency | José Ramón Hernández Correa

I have always liked the trusses. I remember when we were taught at the school the Cremona method to calculate them. It can not be said that it was the father party, but it was entertaining, and, according to one I was doing it, I could intuit (more or less) the composition and decomposition of the forces. It was as […]

Akropolis Now | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

A small professional assignment has led me these days to find careers with a future. It was my first time. I confess that the information found after a first search, reaches a greater relevance in terms of the trend it draws than in terms of the information itself: upward races vs. declining races, skills vs. vocations, techniques vs. thoughts, practices […]

Urban discrimination | Aldo G. Facho Dede

According to the UN, violence is a form of discrimination that inhibits the ability to enjoy equal rights and freedoms. Although gender violence, given the alarming figures, is one of the most visible issues today, there are other types of acts that affect and endanger our lives every day, and whose scale of responsibility exceeds that of a particular subject.

The architect hinders | José Ramón Hernández Correa

I have a new entry in the blog outlined, and already it was going with her when this morning Fernando Sánchez Dragó has slipped past (sigh, this man!) and it has instructed me to write urgently different this one. He has spoken in National Radio, and has annotated a book that, for what he has said, seems to be very interesting:  La Historia […]

New tools proyectuales of reference: HiperMaterialidad | Miquel Lacasta

“There is no architecture without confidence in the matter.” Luis Moreno Mansilla1 Introduction If we understand the idea of matter in his philosophical form, namely, everything what exists out of the spirit and independently of the thought, or in other words, the not spiritual and not ideal part of the royal thing, we will have a purely negative definition. We […]

New tools proyectuales of reference: Productive Landscapes | axonometrica

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. Actually the logics of the landscape, interpreted of opened form, allow to understand the relations between environments, that is to say they throw new readings between, of a side, the urban […]

New tools proyectuales of reference: Common Spaces | Miquel Lacasta

The time of the laments is in the habit of opening way to a serene and sometimes bold reflection. The vision and the reading of the field after the battle, removes reflections, and of form more convulsed that programmed, it activates new hopes. The current situation, not only in local terms, but worldwide, should promote a rigorous debate on the […]

Family Architecture | Halldóra Arnardóttir – Javier Sánchez Merina

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 to society, […]

“Sed fugit interea, fugit irreparabile tempus”.1 A tour of the Canal de Castilla puts background to these reflections on time. A time of slow discourse between the sound of water. The Canal de Castilla is the great effort of Spanish hydraulic engineering at the end of the 18th century. The late son of the Enlightenment and early victim of the […]

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

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 antiarchitectural world. […]

Paul Virilio was born in 1932 and grew up in Nantes, where at the age of eight he witnessed the arrival of the Germans, and at eleven the destruction of the city under a shower of bombs from the allies. At the end of the war he discovered the sea at the same time as peace, since the coast due […]

Building bridges between society and architects | Stepienybarno

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 is no […]
