The distinctive modernity of Norman Foster | Marcelo Gardinetti

Far from the process of ambiguous and controversial representation promoted by the postmodern convulsion that dominated the architectural scene of the early 80s, the work of Norman Foster, aligned with the thought of Richard Rogers and Renzo Piano, was promulgated in favor of a technological update of the modernity. His work ponders the mechanical analogies of the modern movement and […]

A universe, a house | Marcelo Gardinetti

How should a house on the mountainside be for a family with a person confined to a wheelchair? The client himself had the answer: “Contrary to what you would expect, I do not want a simple house. I want a complex house because the house will define my world”.1 The land where the house is located is located in the […]

The dissonance and the paradox | Marcelo Gardinetti

“Since the mid-seventies, Stirling has shown his struggle against the boredom produced by the repetition of modern architecture, against its triviality and its inability to situate itself in historical contours. For this he tried to display a work that was narrative and figurative and, at the same time, abstract and technologically advanced”.1 The architectural work of Stirling goes through the […]

Shoreditch Hotel, urban resort in London | AQSO arquitectos office

The proposal for this mixed-used building including hotel, cinema, and retail explores a formal response to the site conditions with an alternative contemporary language.

Londres, the biggest capital of Europe | Antón Capitel

London had a double birth. On the one hand, there was London proper, what is now known as the City, the city of the merchants and the bourgeoisie, and the city also of the Cathedral, of the bishop.

Architectures of the pain | Íñigo García Odiaga

The end of the first world war in 1918, gave step to a prosperous period of political changes and social revolutions.

Engineering of the Ingenuity | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

The architecture requests a certain predisposition before the finding, something similar to a condition of expectation. The pleasure of the discovery is addictive, stimulant from the militancy of the most contumacious of the ingenuities, often intimately related to the sense of the humor and, in last instance, the intelligence. We imagine that precisely to this Alejandro de la Sota refers […]

The section of the World | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

The idea of hoarding the universal history of the architecture, the sculpture and the painting, amazes and pulls down to equal parts. If the chamber of the exchequers forms a part besides a domestic program, we are before a seductora entelequia of to live: the life like permanent dip in the culture; the collection like the representation itself of his […]

The disaster of the London City. Or, put his real one facing the financial business | Antón Capitel

The principal characteristic of the city of London has been it of not having town planning. Or, at least, her of not having “tracing”, geometrically or compositivo. This idea turned into a real unvariant, almost an obsession, and came up to the end from that, after the frightening “Great Fire” of 1666, which destroyed the city practically completely, the Parliament […]
