Egg Chair. Arne Jacobsen | Borja López Cotelo

5.0 01 When crossing the door of the Radisson SAS, hotel, on the bustling Vesterbrogade avenue, something strange happens. Time seems suspended. On the other side of the street, the Tivoli faces its dreamlike exuberance to the strict geometry that Arne Jacobsen drew for his tower in the Center of Copenhagen. But in the lobby of the Radisson, everything seems […]

Ant Chair. Arne Jacobsen | Borja López Cotelo

5.0 01 Arne Jacobsen considered himself, above all, an architect. But the transcendence of his furniture has made him recognized as an industrial designer, something he always tried to escape. Jacobsen believed that design, architecture and the arts could function as a whole, according to the ideas of gesamtkunstwerk. This ideal of artistic synthesis led him to design the chair […]

Formats | Íñigo García Odiaga

5.0 01 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.

Kokfelt, minimal house of maximum intensity | Rodrigo Almonacid

5.0 02 The Kokfelt house, more than a house, is a form of life, a díaita or diæta that would say the classic ones. It was designed by the Danish Arne Jacobsen between 1955 and finished of constructing in 1957 as summer housing for a small family.

At all up to Africa | Íñigo García Odiaga

5.0 01 They tell that it liked to exclaim Jørn Utzon “At all up to Africa”, while it was observing the sea from the top of the cliffs where his first house places in Can Lis, Majorca. Maybe it is this expression the best way of describing the landscape in the one that places the house, since though those who […]

The sphere of the sea | Sergio de Miguel

0.0 00 Utzon Left his footprint. But, as they did Gabriel García Márquez with One hundred years of solitude or Rachmaninoff with his second symphony, bequeathed us generously a grandísima master work. Certainly imborrable. A piece in the puzzle of our culture whose length dilutes  in the time. Few works have been so iconic, so representative of his geography. So […]

Fingerprints and coverages | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

0.0 00 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 […]

The landscape codified in Arne Jacobsen’s architecture

5.0 01 To study Arne Jacobsen’s work demands certain patience. His scanty public declarations or written texts demand to be sent to the facts in yes, be perfect these in the shape of building, daily object, architectural project, textile design, drawing, water-color or photography. A minimal distance was separating his study of architecture and his domestic garden, place where it […]

Jacobsen, the weighting of the essential thing | Marcelo Gardinetti

5.0 01 The prelude of the second world war limited the architectural productions of the European countries involved in the contest (fundamentally Germany, France and Italy) where, in reason of the most influential impellers of the activity being seated, the modern movement was developing with major obstinacy. In a competing way, there becomes massive the diffusion of works constructed to […]

Objet trouvé [03] : Jørn Utzon and Elineberg’s towers – landscapes | Rodrigo Almonacid

5.0 01 In Elineberg, Jørn Utzon had occasion to open an organic architecture solved with admirable simplicity and without resorting to formulae of residential buildings in height already known. The idea of repetition, inherent in a block of multiple floors (since the case is this), is finely altered by the Danish architect to give him a fullly human sense linked […]

Jørn Utzon. Conversations and other writings

0.0 00 “The human beings experience his environments in different degrees. If one takes an extreme sensibility as the incident of the light and of the shades, as the color and as the space that him makes a detour, then it has the innate qualities of an architect and an artist. If one not only is receptive, but also it […]

The penalty of Jørn Utzon | Borja Lopez Cotelo

5.0 01 The night of June 20, 1976 it was falling a thin rain on Belgrade. Antonín walked his skinny figure for forty meters that separate the midfield of the penalty spot, placed the ball and moved back to take run. It raised the head. Before him, this Sepp Maier’s bony and fierce face; maybe then he remembered Zdeněk Hruška, […]

One of “swindle”: the Jacobsen’s KUBEFLEX houses… | Rodrigo Almonacid

5.0 01 To speak about modular homes has never been synonymous of quality. I refer to the architectural quality, that one that so much we admire for his spatial, aesthetic, material, representative values, etc. I do not remember any constructed that has gone on to the posterity and still it continues being a place of peregrination for the professionals and […]

Objet trouvé [01]: Arne Jacobsen and the columns of the Olimpeión of Athens | Rodrigo Almonacid

5.0 01 Arne Jacobsen was a great draftsman and even better watercolorist. When he was enjoying a few vacations always his pencils and paintbrushes were accompanying him. He was enjoying this interest, which it was cultivating from his infancy. Always he confessed that it was not any more than it, a mere interest, which did not have any artistic pretension […]

Since clear surrounded by the forest | José Valladares

0.0 00 for javier and carlos, companions of trip It is possible to think about the constructions of Jorn Utzon as clear surrounded by a forest. It is like that in Khan Lis, his first housing in Majorca, where the house arranges carefully between the pines, avoiding them here and there, looking for a place between them, to come to […]
