The Gran Vía of Madrid. Brief critical biography of a great street (IV) | Antón Capitel

5.0 01 At the end of the second section and beginning of the third there was a high-interest spatial and formal episode, the Plaza del Callao, which can also be considered as a “fourth act” of the total “theater” that Gran Vía supposes. Or if you prefer, and because of its uniqueness, a theater of your own. An intense and […]

The Gran Vía of Madrid. Brief critical biography of a great street (III) | Antón Capitel

5.0 01 El segundo tramo (o segundo “acto” del “teatro”), de la red de San Luis a la Plaza del Callao, contaba con una notable ventaja, la condición horizontal y recta, lo que hizo que su imagen urbana sea la mejor, y en la que puede imponerse más el propio espacio urbano vacío como tal, sin que sea demasiado necesaria […]

Juan’s Apartment | vora

5.0 03 Before our intervention, in this apartment overlapping stages could be appreciated. Several uses through time accumulated layer over layer. At a first glance one could feel a strange and blurred atmosphere. But beyond confusion we could appreciate the power of its original defining features: a sequence of linked spaces, separated by a powerful rhythm of bearing walls; the […]

The Gran Vía of Madrid. Brief critical biography of a great street (II) | Antón Capitel

5.0 02 El primer tramo de la Gran Vía, que asciende –dando con ello una cierta sensación de fatiga, como si se rememorara la dificultad que se tuvo para iniciarla-, comienza con el gran edificio singular que fue el de la Unión y El Fénix (Alcalá 39, arqtos. Jules y Raymond Fevrier, 1905-10, hoy “Metrópolis” y anterior, en realidad, a […]

Family Architecture | Halldóra Arnardóttir – Javier Sánchez Merina

5.0 02 A quick reading of the PROFESSIONAL ACTION DEONTOLOGICAL RULES OF ARCHITECTS – and I say fast because all our obligations are summarized in less than fifteen short pages – does not mention a word about whether an architect has to question the field of architecture. When, finally, we find an article, the 24th, which refers to our commitment […]

The Gran Vía of Madrid. Brief critical biography of a great street (I) | Antón Capitel

5.0 04 Madrid nació en el oeste de lo que hoy es el casco antiguo, justamente en el lugar del palacio, en el mismo borde de la cresta militar sobre el río Manzanares. Y se extendió hacia unos terrenos de accidentada topografía, lo que provocó desde el principio su irregularidad planimétrica, agravada también por la complicada configuración del trazado de los […]

Wayco Ruzafa | Jose Costa Arquitecto

5.0 02 Si en algo se diferencia de manera radical nuestro tiempo de todas las épocas anteriores, es el modo de relacionarnos y comunicarnos. El desarrollo digital ha transformado todos los procesos interactivos hasta establecerse éste como un “espacio” virtual; espacio, por cumplir, en gran medida, los preceptos de lo que ello implica. Lo curioso es observar cómo los caminos […]

Benidorm Station | HULOT arch. Studio

4.8 17 Architecture is directly linked and interrelated to the concept of routine. We cohabitate with and within it every day, every hour and from this coexistence appear attachments and detachments. Normally, we wake up in the same place, we go to work in one or several locations, and to complete this habitual circle we shelter ourselves at home. Routine […]

The bollards, my father and the Norwegians | José Ramón Hernández Correa

5.0 04 A few years ago my father was walking along his neighborhood. It had rained and the soil was wet. One slipped and fell with so bad luck that his chest found in the fall a metallic bollard that broke a rib and bruised him a lung. The rib knit soon and the pulmonary injury was not very serious, […]

Librería Palas | Arquitectura a Contrapelo

5.0 01 Desde que se abriera al público en 1980, la librería Palas ya destacaba entre los establecimientos de su género, al apostar por una fachada muy abierta, de líneas sencillas, y un acceso central secuenciado. Pero el paso del tiempo ha dejado su huella en unos paramentos invadidos por canalizaciones, huecos, señales y otras interferencias. La acción propuesta persigue […]

La excusa de tomar el té | Piano Piano Studio

5.0 01 Todas las casas son ojos que resplandecen y acechan. Todas las casas son bocas que escupen, muerden y besan. Todas las casas son brazos que se empujan y se estrechan. A los intocables versos de Miguel Hernández en su Cancionero y Romancero de ausencias, yo añadiría que todas las casas son corazón que todo lo rige y nos […]

Classes in one word | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

5.0 01 We often remind our teachers both for their works and for their speeches, brief aphorisms in the form of compressed reasonings that so many turns reach over the years. Surely the most classic and well-known “citations” already clustered in the memory, some dogmatic as sentences probably out of focus. However, some of those concise phrases are ingenious and […]

Parque Castellar Oliveral. Paisajes de juego | HDH arquitectos

4.9 21 El juego es un acto de espontaneidad, que por tanto, requiere libertad para poder desarrollarse. Es creación en streaming, un episodio donde un ámbito u objeto cualquiera se transforman en otra cosa diferente, a través de la imaginación o la ensoñación. Este mundo paralelo, casi virtual, se basa así en un soporte físico para construir esa nueva realidad […]

Metalworking Industry Building | contextos de arquitectura y urbanismo

5.0 01 Light, intended as the origin of the project; as an immaterial element that became the principle of the structural order. The origin of its rhythm and its proportion. The layout of the plot, on the east-west axis, imposed its search. The project was conceived from the section; as a vertical stacking system composed by a sequence of elements […]

5.0 02 José entró a la cocina con el ejemplar de ABC debajo del brazo. Se sentó en su butaca preferida, junto a la ventana mientras Trini le ponía un café. En tazón grande, con la leche muy caliente, como lo tomaba desde que era un crío. Abrió el periódico. Le encantaba el olor de la tinta y, sobre todo, […]
