Las cafeteras de Aldo Rossi | Borja López Cotelo

Las cosas no siempre son lo que parecen. Una cafetera, por ejemplo, puede ser la puerta de entrada a un hombre y a una época1. En los dibujos de Aldo Rossi aparecen de manera recurrente anónimas cafeteras como fantasmas de un pasado recordado entre la niebla del Po. Del mismo modo que sus bocetos de maniquíes aluden a esa Clase […]

Atlas de Teoría(s) de la Arquitectura

Atlas of Theory(s) of Architecture is a visual sample of different ways of seeing the art of building. It is an exhibition in the plural, since there is no single way of conceiving what architecture is, how it is done and how it should be understood. Architecture, like any discipline, develops its theory in words; but, together, it is capable […]

The blue of the sky | Marcelo Gardinetti

“I believe that when the architecture appears the aim to be able to be trasmitida, of being able to interpret the situations of the reality and places inside the historical rational process, it is in conditions to have progressive character”. Aldo Rossi1 From the 60s, Aldo Rossi‘s texts express a way of seeing the architecture that contradicts the unidirectional criterion […]

The victory of the cynicism | Óscar Tenreiro Degwitz

The advertising success was perfectly predictabl1, one would speak about the matter, the book would be bought, but León of Gold? Yes, in effect they received a major prize. That definitively stops very well proven get out of focus joined the superficialness of those who direct the creation of prestiges in the world of the architecture. And also in the world […]

Thinking the architecture (I) | Óscar Tenreiro Degwitz

The desire to confirm points of view on what it is necessary to to do has been done loudly between architects in the last three decades. In some academic means this desire turned as for study, is named (incorrectly) A Theory of the Architecture. That would be a body of ideas, concepts, points of view, which seek to explain the […]

The analogous statement of Aldo Rossi | Marcelo Gardinetti

In the second half of the 20th century, the architectural search of postwar period strains for reaching an alternative offer of the modernity. You appear as Robert Venturi, Denise Scott Braun, Charles Moore and Robert Stern were promoting, in tuning in with the consumer capitalism, a return to the representation and the symbolism suppressed by the modern movement, not to […]

Objects of affection | Jorge Rodríguez

‘I nonetheless am deformed by the links by the things that surround me. As a mollusk that lives in his shell, this way I live in the 19th century, which is now ahead useless as an uninhabited shell. I put on it in the ear.’ Walter Benjamin Aldo Rossi was saying of his architecture that the things saw with great […]

About the last teacher | Oscar Tenreiro Degwitz

After my comments of the previous weeks I clarify that I am not in any way establishing direct kinships between architects as Louis I. Kahn (1901-1974) and Oscar Niemeyer (1907-2012), who, being contemporary, followed antagonistic courses. What yes I have said is that both, together with others, and each one with his specificity, are examples of the effort for extending […]

Aldo Rossi’s lesson | José Ramón Hernández Correa

At the end of the seventies until middle of the eighties of the century twenty (I joust the period in which I studied architecture in the ETSAM), the Modern Movement was already criticized without mufflers. In the school one was speaking about the modern ones and, in general, still one was admiring them, but already the reverential respect had got […]

Architecture-Art (III) | Óscar Tenreiro Degwitz

Any work of art, it does not import his major or minor relative value, aspires to be kept intact across the time in wait to be a sight, reading, executed, represented. And precisely because of it, to preserve them and to protect them from the step of the years is for what the Museums and the Libraries exist. But with […]

Abstract transmutation of Gianfranco Spada | Ángel Gonzalez García

Contemporary architecture has often derived inspiration from the different forms and expressions of modern art, generally from abstract art. Many of the iconic buildings of modern architecture, which every architect holds in their mind’s eye, can be directly associated with works of art or artistic movements. These architectural works, having undergone a process of purification and transposition, are like artistic […]

Utopia or interescalaridad | Michael Ángel Díaz Camacho

In 1974 Mariano Bayón interviews an Alejandro of the Jack isolated from the Academy, the margin already of the cultural paraphernalia of the architecture, an environment of the one that is separated voluntarily: “I will write something in a builders’ magazine, for builders” 1. Undoubtedly, the interest of Jack for the questions you will discipline they remove him from a […]

Spatial construction | Íñigo García Odiaga

If it was trying to summarize in a word which is the last end of the architecture, from an academic point of view, the agreement would be impossible, but no doubt, one of the words with major consensus would be the term space. The space, the construction of an interior isolated of the environment, can be understood as the first […]

The variations of the identity. I test on the type in architecture

The variations of the identity The object of this work is to contribute to a theory of the architectural project in which the idea of type is not conceived as a breeding mechanism but as a structure of the capable form of multiple developments. In this key, the project arquitectural places so far away of the invention of the form […]

Influences in Aldo Rossi’s drawing: killing the father | Borja López Cotelo

Often the time dilutes the certainty. Aldo Rossi emerged in the second half of the 20th century as the man called to illuminate a generation in the shade of the modernity. Precocious iconoclast in his revisionist offer of the contemporary urbanism, many they were thinking about seeing in his theory the way to continuing in the definition of a new […]

The Strange Death of Architectural Criticism

This one is the title of Martin Pawley’s posthumous book, one of the British critics of the second half of the 20th century, together with Reyner Banham and J. M. Richards, and it expresses a worrying fact: the critique of architecture, so influential a few decades ago, today has an irrelevant paper. In case of the critique of architecture there […]
