House in Mera | Patricia Sabín – Enrique M. Blanco

A small holiday home in Mera –Oleiros -, the result of a family with two children. A friendly environment in the natural, on an intermediate scale, in a context suitable for living on foot, but difficult in the next built.

It is a question of the integral rehabilitation of a house located in Bugarra (Valencia), in a deep plot between medians where a business and housing on higher floors coexist on the ground floor.

Divide and win | Íñigo García Odiaga

There is a Latin maxim “Divide et impera”, which gave good results to the great strategists of history such as Julius Caesar or Napoleon. But this military logic is also one of the foundations of computer science and algorithmic design. A calculation methodology that faces the resolution of a complex problem by cutting it into simpler parts of the same type […]

La Gran Vía de Madrid. Breve biografía crítica de una gran calle (VI) | Antón Capitel

El edificio Madrid-París ocupa con especial atractivo una posición intermedia del tramo segundo y horizontal de la Gran Vía, en la acera Sur, o de los números pares. La singularidad del edificio procede sobre todo de haber sido primero un edificio más bajo (de 7 alturas más unos torreones en las esquinas) y de haber sido, más adelante, prácticamente duplicado, […]

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

The third section, descendant, as if referring to the most hurried new times, was made as we said from the thirties to the fifties; that is, leaving the terrible civil war behind. The Gran Vía, unfinished, contemplated and suffered the bombings of the Franco military from the Casa de Campo, and those of German aircraft, and the Telefonica building, still […]

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 independent scene, […]

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

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 la relativa […]

Juan’s Apartment | vora

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 distinction of […]

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 la avenida), […]

When, finally, we find an article, the 24th, which refers to our commitment to society, […]

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

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 caminos y […]

In defense of time | Jorge Meijide

“Sed fugit interea, fugit irreparabile tempus”.1 A tour of the Canal de Castilla puts background to these reflections on time. A time of slow discourse between the sound of water. The Canal de Castilla is the great effort of Spanish hydraulic engineering at the end of the 18th century. The late son of the Enlightenment and early victim of the […]

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 son siempre […]
