El poder de Lo—TEK. Un estudio global de las innovaciones arquitectónicas indígenas

Hace trescientos años, los intelectuales de la Ilustración europea construyeron una mitología de la tecnología. Esta mitología, influida por una mezcla de humanismo, colonialismo y racismo, ignoró la sabiduría local y las innovaciones indígenas, que consideró primitivas. Ahora, nos hemos dado cuenta de que el legado de esta mitología sigue influyendo en nosotros. Pese a que los diseñadores son conscientes de la necesidad urgente […]

Axonométrica. Paseos por el voladizo

Escribir los textos que desfilan por este libro viene a ser como pasear por el voladizo de las ideas. Ideas que atraviesan campos, valles y montes y que con cada caminata perfilan la topografía interior de lo que para mí es la arquitectura. En estos paseos ocurren momentos maravillosos, momentos de íntima felicidad. En mis paseos habituales he gozado de […]

A medida que turbulencias de toda clase caracterizan prepotentemente nuestro clima contemporáneo, va creciendo la centralidad de un puñado de actitudes y obras que, a lo largo del siglo xx, han cultivado la poética del silencio y han sido capaces de interpretar, a través de ella, la realidad caótica y huidiza de nuestra época. Al intento de desentrañar algunas claves de […]

Tocando el mundo. Juhani Pallasmaa

He dado a las seis conferencias un título unificador: “Tocar el mundo a través de la arquitectura”, derivado de un comentario de Maurice Merleau-Ponty sobre las pinturas de Paul Cézanne, las cuales “hacen visible cómo nos toca el mundo”. En mi opinión, esta es también la tarea fundamental de la arquitectura: proporcionarnos un punto de apoyo existencial en este mundo, […]

Dressing the Mies van der Rohe Pavilion to strip it of all materiality. This simple act turned the Pavilion into a representation of itself, opening the door to multiple interpretations about aspects like the value of the original, the role of the white surface as an image of modernity and the importance of materiality in the perception of space.

How much house do we need? Thoreau, Le Corbusier and the sustainable cottage

The space we inhabit, reduced to a minimum, has been a source of fascination and experimentation throughout history. Henry David Thoreau lived in his forest hut in Walden Pond between 1845 and 1847. Le Corbusier built in 1952 for him and his wife the famous Cabanon of the Côte d’Azur. Inspired by these experiences, Urs Peter Flueckiger and his students […]

Restless asses, infinite seats

Jimmy Durham said that the chairs delimit our bodies in order to become essential and that architecture – the holy spirit of a ghostly and elusive entity linked to the State – was in charge of inventing them. In the same way, hundreds of artists and writers have spent decades showing us the role of the most restless asses in […]

The use of the copy of drawings, the importance of treaties for the transmission of knowledge, the meaning of the centralized plant or the importance of mathematics and geometry in the diary […]
