Nikolai Ladovsky: the house-commune and the psychoanalytic method of teaching architecture | Jelena Prokopljević

Housing was one of the great themes of architectural research since the early post-revolutionary years in the Soviet Union. The house commune was being drawn as one of the best solutions and developed in two directions: the reorganization of existing homes and building new ones. The first option comprehended the subdivision of expropriated houses and the new division of the […]

Utopía/Nutopia | Miquel Lacasta

The 60s were the age of the megastructures, the age of the Utopian dreams, the age of the revolts against the established. In turn they were the epoch of the construction of the imaginary common one. The age of a politicallly active, almost arrogant optimism; At the beginning of the 70, probably for pure law of the pendulum, it came […]

Formats | Íñigo García Odiaga

Often one thinks that the formatos only give response to the dimensions of the sheets, the linens or the frames, establishing relations between his different dimensions. Thus the dimensions of the paper are organized to industrial level, being based on the number v2 to establish all the relations between the parts and everything. The format is understood therefore as an […]

Are we softening ourselves? | Elías Cueto

Daisuke Motori is a young Japanese architect whose work, the informal and the domestic, is often a source of inspiration and gives rise to objects that go along with an accomplice. One of his first works is Lost in sofa, a somewhat ironic version of the Kubus sofa designed by Josef Hoffmann. In 1910 the architect of the Secession submitted […]

Without Manual

The award-winning Japanese architect Toyo Ito, known for imposing works in Europe and Asia, with geometries inspired by nature and forms close to fantasy, designed the International Baroque Museum in Puebla, Mexico. Nobody knew how to carry it out and only a team of Mexican builders took the challenge after two years of no one accepting the project. It was […]

The eye of the cyclops | Jorge Meijide

Out of sight, out of mind… I do not recognize myself, am foreign to me itself. I do not recognize myself because my around it is foreign to me. People do things around me. Many people, many things, other things, duplicated things, multiplied things. The life of other one is foreign. How if not, I am not other one! The […]

Fingerprints and coverages | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

The architecture is born from the meticulous arrangement of fingerprints and coverages. In occasions one of them will be sufficient. The fingerprint is established as a vestige, a sign, an engraving or an emergency on the landscape: the land like “the simplest form of the architecture”.1 The fact of extending to the air a protective surface, of stretching a coverage […]

Faults of fragmentation | Sergio de Miguel

In the recent architecture we find a resource appellant of figurative transgression. His aim is not other one that to put in value, to emphasize, the buildings that for his character and purpose have to stand out in his environment. It is known that the principal virtue of the architecture is to control the fragmentation. Definitively, the quantities. There exist numerous […]

New York Times | Óscar Tenreiro Degwitz

In spite of that his production suffers from the excess and it him had come well to have only 10 % of the works that it accumulates in his career, I believe that Renzo Piano (1937) is an architect who has produced some of the best buildings of these times in which so many wrong things are asked him to […]

Igalitarian status and illusory limit in SANAA | Marcelo Gardinetti

A distinctive feature of the work of Kazuyo Sejima and Ryue Nishizawa is the valuation extreme of the horizontal space, understanding that he consents the natural movement of the man and facilitates his field of vision of a way that allows to join the architecture with the horizon. This disposition, which takes as a reference the concept of free plant […]

The Japanese house. Space, memory and language

This book describes the domestic traditional architecture of Japan in twenty-five thematic chapters that include some already very known elements, as the pavements of straw (tatami) or the lacquers (urushi), together with others less spread out of the country, as the stone to take off the shoes (kutsunugi-ishi) or the continuous lintel (nageshi).

Lynch and Wright | Jorge Gorostiza

I have not read the book The Architecture of David Lynch, written by Richard Martin last year, but another day I found an interview that Kathrin Spohr did to Lynch in 1997, in her he asked him on his house, one of many that there created the architect Lloyd Wright, and not his father Frank Lloyd Wright, since he has […]

Revealing the past | Íñigo García Odiaga

Paul Scheebart was saying in 1914 in the text Glasarchitektur that the architecture had to change and evolve adopting the glass as paradigm of the modernity and of a company more raised culturally. The constructions of walls of load with small windows had to transform in opened buildings that were introducing the light of the Sun, of the moon and […]

By Parts | Íñigo García Odiaga

The architecture unlike other artistic works, dragged by his own functional definition has presented  many times along the history like a sum of pieces, of stays or of parts. This system compositivo reappears in the architecture more vanguardista, that contradictoriamente does alarde to escape of the composition. That somehow the functionalism, that is to say the proyectación of architectures by […]

Architecture in deconstruction | Alberto Ruiz

Years ago I had the opportunity to visit the enclosure of what had been the universal exhibition of Seville of that glorious 1992 that seemed that it was going to put Spain in the place that was deserved (probably, I dress the seen, yes that did it). That visit was organized by a teacher of the School of Architecture of […]

The third space | Íñigo García Odiaga

The city is one of the paradigms of the human activity, and probably it is impossible to define it without alluding to the intensity of the relations, the exchanges and the connections between the citizens, that it is capable of generating. From a spatial point of view, all the legislation and all the regulations they allude only to two types […]

Portraits across the eyes of a near-sighted person (VI) | epR

Bird marinades They all resemble Jørn Utzon as a high man. But actually it it was not. Utzon seemed to be extraodinary because it lived on a platform, as that it had seen in Mexico or in Japan in his youth; and from her it looked behind and forward. It recognized oriental temples and Mayan constructions; he remembered the models […]

Small Architecture Now!

Saving space. Big ideas for small buildings. Over the years, talented architects have occasionally indulged themselves with the challenge of designing small but perfectly formed buildings. Today, with reduced budgets, many architects have turned in a more focused way to creating works that may be diminutive in their dimensions, but are definitely big when it comes to trendsetting ideas. Whether […]

“On having explored the language and the poetical sensibility shared by all these animals, work towards the rediscovery of the common area that once existed when the people were living in harmony with the animals. I hope that the final effect is an experience of amazement and contemplation, of serenity and hope.” Gregory Colbert, photographer. It was at the end […]

Contemporary tradition | Íñigo García Odiaga

Two things stand out deeply when Kengo Kuma approaches the work of the Japanese arquitectos. On the one hand the great quantity of projects that he has constructed in the last 10 years, all of them of the highest level, on the other hand such a radical use of the materials, or if it is preferred of the matter, as […]
