La excusa de tomar el té | Piano Piano Studio

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 mueve por […]

Classes in one word | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

Parque Castellar Oliveral. Paisajes de juego | HDH arquitectos

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 que posibilita […]

Metalworking Industry Building | contextos de arquitectura y urbanismo

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 attached in […]

La grapa de ABC | Alberto Ruiz

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, que el […]

Monumental Cinema by Casto Fernéndez-Shaw | Jorge Gorostiza

Reviewing the work of the architect Casto Fernández-Shaw, I have found that many issues of his magazine Cortijos y rascacielos are digitized and can be accessed at Memoria de Madrid.

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”.

Unfocused Appointments | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

In general, and except for honorable exceptions, the architects write regular. In fact, the fact of approaching with such passion a task for which we have not been specifically trained has merit. To support our ideas and convictions we often use a recurring tool: the appointment, a brief endorsement of our argument thanks to the timely support of an authoritative […]

PLACE´TA | Juan Moya arquitectura

Intervention is a reactive architecture faced to the hostility of urban conditions in the site and to the scheduled mechanicism proper of a lifestyle inherited from the 20th Century modernity. An impersonal crossway with high traffic volume is balanced through a biophilic interior for collective meeting. Being today demands the pass towards metamodernity. The presence of a human being that […]
