Precariedad laboral arquitectónica | Stepienybarno

4 years of crisis have left sequelas more than considerable in almost all the professions, and one of which more is  resintiendo is the one of the architecture. The situation goes back  increasingly critical and, even, in means generalistas, like the recent article of Anatxu Zabalbeascoa, Historias de la arquitectura ‘mileurista’, do  echo of the situation. Few days afterwards, began […]

¿Cómo salvar la ciudad? | Gema Santamaría

” The cities are the major destroyer of the ecosystem and the major threat for the survival of the man on the planet ” (Richard Rogers, Ciudades para un pequeño planeta.)1 Throwing the sight behind I remember with nostalgia when the city was alive, when it was transmitting emotions, it was a prolongation of the housing, a place of meeting.

Looking for work as young architect: A few suggestions | Lourdes Bueno-Miguel Villegas

We go time with this topic in the mind. We are a small study and with a still short path, with what whenever we receive a curriculum, and we receive many, it overwhelms us to see so much potential of that we cannot take advantage. And since we cannot contract all the tremendous architects that you ask for work us, […]

I need an architect. Why? | Lourdes Bueno-Miguel Villegas

A question opportunely thrown by our admired Carlos Cámara  put the finger in the sore and it has made us recover an internal debate that we liked to extract to the light. Why do people prefer to a builder before that to an architect? Carlos was not raising a dichotomy, was giving for this reality made, the people do not want […]

The strengths of the architect | Stepienybarno

Some time ago a good friend of ours was commenting to us that for him, the architects we were like ducks. These animals are of air, are of land and are of water, do everything, though they do nothing excessively well. So, this curious comparison uses us as introduction to see what is what we understand that we make or […]

Do they continue having the contests of architecture felt? | Stepienybarno

We return to encourage to touch one of the most troubled topics: the contests of architecture. But we will not do it from an analytical point of view of the same ones, since already we did it in his day during four articles. Today it has not to enter bases, sworn, possible fixes or period, on it already they have written, […]

O’Mighty Green | Beatriz Ramo

0. Introduction Sustainability currently shares many qualities with God; supreme concept, omnipotent, omnipresent, and omniscient; creator and judge, protector, and (…) saviour of the universe and the humanity. And, like God, it has millions of believers. SAs we, the humans, are simple beings and desconfiados and need of images to be able to affirm our beliefs, the Green (the Echo, […]

They are not geniuses those that we need now. José Antonio Coderch

Written by the architect Jose Antonio Coderch and published by the first time in the Italian magazine Domus, directed then by Gio Ponti, in the number of November, 1961. For this publication I have taken the freedom of extracting some paragraphs, inviting them to check the complete text in the following web direction: “In writing this it is neither my […]

Architecture, architects and the state of the profession | Stepienybarno

It seems that every time there are more digital publications that speak of the hard reality in that it finds  immersed the world of the architecture. Many times, reading between lines the comments of articles of means of big diffusion, find  visions much more interesting that what the own publications aim. So, today it does not touch to speak neither […]

Can call house to the current house? | Cristina García-Rosales

It seems a perogrullada this question, but will see that it is not it so much. The house, purple or room, is that physical space, generally a building, whose main reason to be will be the one to offer shelter and rest, thanks to the rooms that has in his interior, to the people and to all what they will […]

Día tras día, la prensa nos ofrece noticias sobre las ilegalidades urbanísticas que se han cometido, en Galicia. Ya sabemos que es un tema que los arquitectos tratamos de obviar pero es una realidad que tenemos y que debemos poner solución ya que en menor o mayor medida somos participes de la situación. Hoy nos centraremos en la referidas a […]

Which is the responsibility of the architect? | Stepienybarno

The truth is that it would like us write merry articles and distended, in fact, do not lose the illusion to do it, but for now touches to assume the realism that surrounds us and, unfortunately, does not give us a lot of reasons to launch the bells to the flight. So today it must speak of responsibilities. Almost at […]

Manual of automatic speech for architects | José Ramón Hernández Correa

( Summary of an article of a few years ago, which I like to remember) The architects we meet often in very inconvinient situations: – Carlos Luis, you what do you think of the Guggenheim of Bilbao? – Luisa Fernanda, what does look like to you of Calatrava in Tenerife? Before these questions at point-blank range we are never to […]

Architect, alone or accompanied? | Stepienybarno

The Spanish architect could consider  a species of bicho rare in comparison of the common “architect” European. The way in that during these last years has developed  the profession in our country, little or at all has to see to the one of the rest of our neighbours. But what is what does that it was so different? In our […]

The budget of the project | Stepienybarno

It is not the first time that us adentramos in terrains so pragmatic and with so little glamour as it is to speak of the budget of a project. That is to say, that what project  know, more or less, how much slope and there is somebody (in this planet) that it was able to realise the work by a […]

To world-wide level, the interest by the thematic related to the environment, the cities, the habitat, the poverty and the polución generated (in main measure) inside a system that commonly designate Urban; they have turned into the main diary of the governments of countries developed and of the institutions that look after the progress and development of the countries, such […]
