The architecture of the trip | Michael Ángel Díaz Camacho

There does not exist for the architects a condition of major excitation that that one who promotes the anteroom of the trip: the best text to learn architecture is the own architecture. As addicts submitted to a powerful influence, we read and document carefully those places and spaces that us wait in a real exercise of (re)discovery. Nevertheless, the trip […]

Praise of the incorrectness | Michael Ángel Díaz Camacho

The architecture lives placidly in the area of the orthodoxy, bendecida for the rules commonly accepted by the group, freely of mistakes or faults. The codes justify, the cánones legitimize. Though not always. The history has given us magnificent examples of architecture arisen from what Enrique Walker qualifies as “the ordinary thing” 1, that is to say, the daily thing, […]

The window of the desires | Michael Ángel Díaz Camacho

There exists in the Fifth Avenue of New York a window on which the people crowd from the street. In the night and day, sosegadamente, we imagine almost silently. A window seductora and hypnotic as a putting of the Sun or a rain of stars. Nobody might imagine that actually, which is admired by the own emotion of the corsair […]

Modernity and do-it-yourself | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

They tell that Albert Frey got fond of the construction of canoes of curled wood and canvas during his jouth1. We imagine the emotion of making the framework based on frames, strakes and parquet floor, as well as the moment to stick suitably sly the canvases top and low, of different weight, outlined by means of thin moldings of bronze […]

See the heat | Michael Ángel Díaz Camacho

That the architecture is not possible without the light it turns out so evident as inaccurate. Or at least incomplete. Really, so often it has been said to us already, the light can be the raw material of the architecture, his substance. Certain. It does not do so much the cycle of the life one was organizing concerning the solar […]

Hands to the Roiba | Michael Ángel Díaz Camacho

Some years ago we were visiting Bueu for the capture of information in the accomplishment of a contest of ideas1. Before colonizing the emplacement, before any labor, we approach The Roiba. Probably this one was our major success. The contest was raising the construction of a small nautical club between the beaches of Petis and Pescadoira, in the environment of […]

Drawing the nature | Michael Ángel Díaz Camacho

Of many infamies that the architects we promote often, the fact of drawing the nature constitutes, probably, the most beautiful. In our planes there turn out to be represented somehow trees and plants, rivers and seas, oceans devoid of the sky blue one of the maps. But perhaps is it possible to condense the tides or the landscapes in a […]

After Saarinen’s fingerprints | Michael Ángel Díaz Camacho

Eero Saarinen dedicated a very small part of his career to the topic of the housing, in fact, only he constructed two. In words of one of the most important experts of his work, Antonio Roman Asensio: “the design of the one-family house simply was not fitting with the exercise of the profession as it Saarinen understood”1. In spite of […]

Otras puertas | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

The door that Alicia finds in the burrow of the rabbit is, actually, a window. In spite of his appearance of door, his minuscule size turns her into only a crack practised in the wall from where being able to look at the most wonderful garden of the world1, this fascinating place that one hides after the walls and to […]

The management of the unpredictable thing | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

In occasions we have argued on the “program” as a compromising element of the project of architecture. The architects we have presumed to know, even better than the own users, that one that they precisely need, doing of the “reintepretation” of the program one of our more valuable contributions to the order. Nevertheless, the time us is in the habit […]

The trip of an idea | Michael Ángel Díaz Camacho

The architect sat before his board and clutching soft pencil, he was thinking before his silent notebook it brings over of the project and his circumstances. It was looking for an idea from it was doing weeks and today the paper in blank would be finally grafiado across the ‘spark’ that crosses the way that goes of the cortex1 to […]
