Cloud of smoke | José Ramón Hernández Correa

The prestigious study of architecture MVRDV has presented his project The Cloud, that went  to build in Seoul, Korea, in 2015. And I say “it went ” because the thing has twisted  of the silliest way. It has not been the crisis, neither any technical problem, but the public opinion, the one who seems to be that it goes to […]

The electronic intruder. TV in the architectural space

Today the viewer is no longer a passive subject that supports what the channels emit, but he chooses his own programming, thanks to the fact that the television also receives what is broadcast by other devices. Despite this, the television receiver is still an artifact with which we live in all houses and in most public establishments. In this moment […]

Does anyone know what criticism is? | José Ramón Hernández Correa

Lately, based on reading blogs and websites, I am reading more about architecture than in many years. I am almost returning to the reading level I had when I was a student. Between that era of the school of architecture and the current one there is a turbid (and lucrative) stage of successful professional who bought expensive magazines to see […]

Something that I do not want to be | José Ramón Hernández Correa

In this blog I spread myself often against what I consider intolerable excesses of the architecture of flash, and criticize her without reservations (and I believe that deservedly). The own title of my blog, ¿Arquitectamos locos?, already I it have counted several times, it is necessary to to the indignation that I sit (or that was feeling, in full epoch […]

Populism (III) Portela dixit | Óscar Tenreiro Degwitz

The Mission Housing is a program with so many omissions and improvisations as the enormous investments that it has demanded. It was conceived and he manages the affairs privately, between political and professional relatives subject to confidentiality, and progresses with the economic, juridical and professional irrationality that has done to itself characteristic of the Venezuelan petroestado. There do not exist […]

Populism (II) | Óscar Tenreiro Degwitz

When I was studying architecture we had a Cuban teacher called Ricardo Porro Hudalgo (1925-2014), who should construct in the pro-Castro Cuba a few years later one of few works of worthy architecture of mention in the half century of Cuban revolution, a school of art with vaults of brick that has been very praised. Lazy, Marxist militant in this […]

Populism (I) | Óscar Tenreiro Degwitz

Vengo ocupándome desde hace cierto tiempo del tema del populismo. Otras veces lo he tocado, aclarando que no me refiero sólo al populismo político1 sino al populismo en general. A los arquitectos el tema nos concierne porque si hay algo que daña la visión general que se tiene de la arquitectura es el populismo. Esto no parece tan a la mano […]

Against the architectural symbolism | José Ramón Hernández Correa

In the S. The XVIIIth the neoclassic architect utopista Ledoux designed an ideal city for a new ideal company. One of the buildings of this wonderful city was the Oikema: a “house of the pleasure”. It is not exactly what you are thinking; it is worse. To the citizen (male) of the new company it was necessary to give sexual […]

Façades (im)portants | Sergio de Miguel

The architecture has discurrido from his origins with the paradoja of the duality between the closing and the structure portante. Of a similar way to which find in the classical physics with the light and the disquisition wave-particle. During centuries both elements have been the same thing, that is to say, together have conformed the walls of the buildings without […]

The architecture of the place | Íñigo García Odiaga

The explosion of the architecture of the spectacle is directly tied to the urban phenomena and maybe for problems on a large scale, budget or function has eclipsed the architectural debate of the rural thing. In these areas the most awkward contemporary architecture tries to establish new links with the context across the update of the local tradition. During possibly […]

An intemperate fluency | Marcelo Gardinetti

Most of the works realized in the last years by Zaha Hadid turns out to be works structured under decisively singular bosses of design, where the rough lines of his formal statement constitute the axis of his emblems, over any other variable. These generatrices applied of a strict way in his works, produce works of extravagant figures that can be […]

Obsolecence do rascacielos | Marcelo Gardinetti

“Assuming condescendientemente the worse of the taste and value of his clients, the big signatures of architecture are prolonging the life of a type that has not been affected by new ideas or ambitions from the accomplishment of the World Trade Center in 1972. After having turned New York into an unbearable demonstration of architectural mediocrity, now they follow his […]

Zahas Hadides why? | José Ramón Hernández Correa

I represent boring, tired, bored, to another Zaha Hadid´s new “genius”, and wonder: “why?” “Why?” Zaha Hadid, as all the divine architects, architects – brands, architects – stars, already is not an arquitecta. She is not even a person. She is neither a man nor woman. It is an entity, a corporation. His study is called Zaha Hadid Architects. They are many architects […]
