En la Europa de los años 30 la tuberculosis era una de las principales preocupaciones sanitarias.

De acuerdo con estos ideales higienistas, e inspirado por el Zonnestraal de Duiker, Alvar Aalto proyectó […]

Refugio Doñana | Fermín G. Blanco

Era un día gris y amarillo. No sabía si era lluvia lo que traía el viento, o es que la niebla pesaba mojando el suelo. El denso silencio del aire solo se cortaba por el murmullo de los árboles, y por algunos rayos de sol que huían de las nubes. Caía la tarde, helaban las hojas. Salía humo de la […]

Alberto Corral Corral · Ubuild, a new construction system in wood

We have seen how the architects these years have recovered and covered diverse fields of work, even explored in some less common ones such as research and development of products or systems, mainly populated by other professionals. Although I+D is an area that has not been very prolific in architecture lately, we find some cases such as the Galician architect, […]

Nostra House | Bernat Llauradó Auquer – tallerdarquitectura

A house in the middle of a garden, designed for our way of living and feeling; with two clearly differentiated volumes. One of them slender and closed, which contains our less vital intensity spaces, like bathrooms, stairs, bedrooms or storage, and the other one, horizontal and transparent, where we spend most of the time, with our family and friends.

Infant School in A Baiuca | Abalo Alonso Arquitectos

The school is located on the edge of the urban area, where it is already confused with the rural one. And with the collective memory, physical even still, of the old industrial facilities nearby present. A series of volumes, almost childish, gather like little houses from one of the “rueiros” that follow one another a little further on. And in […]

Unstable equilibrium | Íñigo García Odiaga

It is said that the classical Greek sculpture reached its maximum splendor when it began to use the contrapposto. This Italian term could be defined as the relation that the different parts of the body establish when initiating the movement. The weight of the body rests mainly on one leg, so that the corresponding hip rises with respect to the […]

Designers, artists and craftsmen. Or what do we mean by innovation | Elías Cueto

Innovation is a term whose meaning is broad. Referring to wood helps to specify the scope of work, but it does not record it sufficiently. There is innovation in wood linked to consolidated fields of knowledge. From forest engineering, or the mechanics of materials to industrial transformation or the chemical digestion of wood, all these fields have given rise to […]

Domestic Strangers (I): The Extraordinary Houses by Kiyoto Ota | Pedro Hernández

Upon entering the Chopo University Museum appear three small houses. We say houses because we recognize them as such: wooden volumes with sloping roofs of a picturesque appearance, typical of the drawings of what for a child could be a house. Its conception, however, is completely outside the canons of architecture: its size is scarce, its interior space almost minimal […]

Refurbishment of a small attached house | Mendaro Arquitectos

Workspace, exhibition space (and hidden dwelling). The premise was to carry out the refurbishment of a row house built in the 20s, classified as “recognized poverty housing”. There was a limited budget and the place’s character had to be kept in the outside. It has a front and a back garden. The idea was to set up an artist residency […]

Dussart Pedrón Winery | Crux Arquitectos

En la línea de tiempo de las edificaciones hay muchas vidas diferentes, y todas marcan de alguna manera a las siguientes. Las mismas construcciones, los mismos paisajes, en momentos diferentes son percibidas de manera diferente; vividas, al fin y al cabo, bajo otras circunstancias. En esas vidas, además de pasar por usos diferentes, transformaciones, abandonos y renacimientos, se pasa por […]

The order highlights the need to solve a new commercial building in a peripheral environment with a scattered fabric dominated by single-family homes without a predominant typology. It is crucial to respond to the aspirations of being an object with identity but at the same time integrated into the environment. The proposal is formalized as a rocky prism that, in […]
