Another essential Brazilian | Óscar Tenreiro Degwitz

This wandering through the legacy of Oscar Niemeyer takes one to the Brazilian culture. And within it architecture as an accepted expression, promoted and integrated into a kind of national “being”. Because that journey of centennial and exceptional man is also the path of a culture. To verify what has been said, it is enough to refer to Lucio Costa […]

This exhibition is the first to be held in Spain on the fascinating figure of Lina Bo Bardi (Rome, 1914 – São Paulo, 1992).

Formats | Íñigo García Odiaga

Often one thinks that the formatos only give response to the dimensions of the sheets, the linens or the frames, establishing relations between his different dimensions. Thus the dimensions of the paper are organized to industrial level, being based on the number v2 to establish all the relations between the parts and everything.

City and architecture: a dyad | Óscar Tenreiro Degwitz

Making architecture a fundamental instrument in the construction of the city has been the most significant of the evolution of urban thought of the last two decades. But getting to that point was not easy. While it is true that in the debate on the city of the early twentieth century that notion seemed to be a priority argument of […]

The expectation of the modern thing | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

In 1957 Paulo Mendes da Rocha designs the chair “Paulistano” for the lounges of the Gymnasium of São Paulo’s Athletic Club. It suits to rescue this brief description in technical which in the design and social commitment they look like two faces of the same currency: “The chair is done by pipe of steel, which is very cheap.

Fingerprints and coverages | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

The architecture is born from the meticulous arrangement of fingerprints and coverages. In occasions one of them will be sufficient. The fingerprint is established as a vestige, a sign, an engraving or an emergency on the landscape: the land like “the simplest form of the architecture”.1 The fact of extending to the air a protective surface, of stretching a coverage […]

Óscar Niemeyer | Óscar Tenreiro Degwitz

I overcome the fence that the political reality us stretches every day to all and decide to speak1 of Oscar Niemeyer (1907-2012) whose longevity stopped in December, 2012. Already once I wrote that it had had the privilege of conversing with him in his study of the Atlantic Avenue opposite to Copacabana in 1994. We speak about his Brief of […]

The city is of all

“If the proclamation of which the city must be for all turns out to be necessary it is because one forgets often the last justification of our trade: that the architecture is not but the manifestation of a knowledge that has to be solidary and generous. Paulo Mendes da Rocha’s work is intense and risky, both for his materiality and […]

The values of the autoconstructed cities.

The architecture of Oscar Niemeyer from his drawings

The comparative exercise between the graphical designs of the architect and his constructed work rests on a rich documentation, in his original most, which consists both of graphical sketches and of photographies. The book is structured in four chapters, […]
