The plant and the ruin | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

I remember the first time I had an original before my eyes. That pencil-drawn plant contained all the information necessary for the execution of the project: dimensions, levels, finishes, materials, types of walls, ceiling height, program, support, relationship with the immediate environment … More than a plant we could say that it was a map, a latent structure in a […]

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 […]

This quality that demonstrates in the tracing of the plant, in the succession amalgamated of volumes and in the composition stratified of front, answers to the exact balance that Palladio reaches in his maturity proyectual.

Contemporary | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

The Argentine poet was wondering on his contemporary ones, establishing conditions and manners of coexistence beyond a time and an epoch: those who are my contemporary? It was said. The awake enormous question interest, even more in the current moment, a displaced and speculative present in which the label “contemporary” appears as faithful accompanist of the most sweetened felonies: I […]

By Parts | Íñigo García Odiaga

This system compositivo reappears in the architecture more vanguardista, that contradictoriamente does alarde to escape of the composition.

Scenaries with Soul. Inventary of places to pray

“The landscapes with soul that Eduardo Delgado Orusco proposes us in this book, are landscapes of the soul calmly, with the calmness that grants to the architecture the presence of the spirit. These architectures are landscapes crossed by the breath of a soft aura, that rumor in which Elías recognized the God’s presence. How might we define better the sacred […]
