Mobility without infrastructure | Juan Creus

1. The traditional concept of infrastructure departs from a segregation: the creation of a channel that separates a few citizens from others for the mere fact of moving of different form. 2. The infrastructure chooses to the vehicle and is designed for him. The city turns into a tracing determined by the geometry delimited by the signposting and the construction […]

Letter of an infuriated architect | Stepienybarno

After the “letter of a arquitecture student” that we publish it does little; we encourage you to have a look to this new “letter of an infuriated architect “. My name and surnames, they do not matter. In this alone case it is important if I am an architect and believe that I speak in name of many other architects with […]

For the reason of the Architecture | Jose Ramon Hernández Correa

I believe that today, more that, it is never necessary to recover the title of that series of sixteen articles that Frank Lloyd Wright wrote from March, 1908 until December, 1928 in the magazine The Architectural Record: “In The Cause of Architecture”. With them the Architecture speaks about his form of dealing, but, over it, does a declaration of love […]

The life, instructions of use | Jorge Rodríguez

“Opens yours eyes, look“1 There is not fortuitous the way in which Georges Perec begins the one that a posteriori turned into greatest work of the literature of the second half of the 20th century. And neither there is fortuitous the formal complex structure that contains it, relating the life of almost 200 prominent figures who shared building across a […]

Architecture, geometry and landscape | CREUSeCARRASCO

Proponemos interpretar el significado de la geometría y el paisaje a partir del tradicional debate entre lo sensible y lo racional en arquitectura, haciendo un planteamiento de equilibrio entre definiciones que, en su aparente contradicción, responden a fases de un recorrido cíclico, el que realizamos cuando proyectamos y construimos una obra. La ARQUITECTURA construye un espacio que va a ser […]

Letter of a student of architecture | Stepienybarno

Again, we encourage with a rather different entry. To seeing if you like it. I am a student of architecture, a student without name, because, here and now, how I call it is not important. I believe that my words represent many students of architecture and it yes that it is more important. For more information, I am in third […]

Concerning the year 2007 Alejandro Zaera was negotiating with the EMV the near construction of his building of social housings in Carabanchel.

These mad architects | Stepienybarno

In his day, if someone was nominating you the word “the architect” already you were imagining important someone whom almost it was possible to revere. Nevertheless, at present, the profession has fallen down in misery; on the one hand, there associates to a sector speculator who macizó happens Spain and, for other one, though the expression is hard, they do […]

Constant, the Utopia receives life | Miquel Lacasta Codorniu

Constant, the Utopia receives life In the Utopian landscape of the sixties, where there resound names like Kurokawa, Fuller, Friedman, Archigram, Utopie or Archizoom, Constant’s project stands out for his ideological rigor. The technological Utopias of Archigram or Buckminster Fuller do not differ for social concepts of base in his offers. For these architects it is, especially, the fascination for […]

Studies of architecture or companies of architecture? | Stepienybarno

It is clear that to be an architect today is a profession, when less, complicated it, for not saying of high risk. The crisis is beastly for all, but in our sector of the architecture and the construction it has damaged more than in the majority. For it, it seems to us to be interesting us to stop to think […]

Jacobs versus Le Corbusier | Miquel Lacasta Codorniu

Jacobs versus Le Corbusier The city already cannot be a place thought from the rules, but a life space from the beginning. To many years have happened since one could have stated the failure of planning the cities in the medium and long term. Probably this system was pertinent at the beginning of the 19th century where still it was […]

Why do we write? | Cristina García-Rosales

It is a question that we we all have done to ourselves, which we write more often and those who scribble a few intimate notes in a leaf of paper. The critics, the journalists, the writers, historians, blogueros, architects and philosophers. Those who are remunerated by the fact of writing and those that – almost always – we it do […]

Some time ago, someone who was devoting himself to the organization of events of international character related to the architecture, was saying to us that there were great more people interested in speaking that in listening. Coming from someone with experience and success in this type of complex plannings us turned out to be strange because we had been witnesses […]

The architect Le Corbusier carried away of the sea, was also an enthusiast of the transatlantic ones. When it realized his first trip to New York, invited by the authorities of EUUU, it did it on board of one and remained very impressed on having experimented during the voyage, that the life of a ship was differentiating very little of […]

This photo was chance. One of these captures that you can do simply because it gives the chance of which when you look, you take the chamber raises. Time later, we returned to happen for the same place in another visit and discovered a landscape that, though it was coinciding with place, it had changed into essence. Where before there […]

1 The latter days I have remembered the court of the college where we us were squeaking the legs at the moment of the playtime when it had to sorrow approximately twelve years. In this playground, which must serve for almost all kinds of scattering, there were superposed lines that were mixing different disciplines and sports, football, handball, basketball, etc, […]

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.

” 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 […]

Some time ago a good friend of ours was commenting to us that for him, the architects we were like ducks.

So, this curious comparison uses us as introduction to see what is what we understand that we make or […]
