El poder de Lo—TEK. Un estudio global de las innovaciones arquitectónicas indígenas

Hace trescientos años, los intelectuales de la Ilustración europea construyeron una mitología de la tecnología. Esta mitología, influida por una mezcla de humanismo, colonialismo y racismo, ignoró la sabiduría local y las innovaciones indígenas, que consideró primitivas. Ahora, nos hemos dado cuenta de que el legado de esta mitología sigue influyendo en nosotros. Pese a que los diseñadores son conscientes de la necesidad urgente […]

Casa Conserva | Jose Costa Arquitecto

La casa del arquitecto. El ejercicio más personal e íntimo, así como necesario, que un arquitecto puede experimentar. Una oportunidad de explorar caminos improbables y proponer una forma de habitar única y particular. Ese lugar que debe acoger historias provinientes de vidas pasadas y estimular las futuras. Un espacio que exprese el carácter y la idiosincrasia particular, en el que […]

JES House | Carpe + Crux Arquitectos

JES House is the story of a project in which the nature of the assignment prevailed over the proposals related to the site. Other factors took over, overpowering the site conditions-environment, orientation, planning- and certain reflections on materiality. The persistence of the developers led us to leave the location-bound ideas aside, one by one, to meet the sole condition of […]

Casa REI | Crux Arquitectos

Una casa… Una casa que se disfruta en familia. Una casa que cambia, que se adapta, que acoge a padres, bisabuelas, hijas, yernos, nietos, a algunos de ellos o a todos a la vez. Una casa que algunas mañanas amanece en el murmullo suave de un desayuno tranquilo y otras tardes arropa el griterío de los niños que juegan, de […]

Textura en la arquitectura socialista. La expresión local y personal | Jelena Prokopljević

La arquitectura socialista fue generalmente concebida y entendida bajo el pretexto de internacionalismo. Las estrechas relaciones políticas, la ayuda tecnológica y el trasvase de conocimiento entre los países se traducían en la obra construida a través de la similitud de respuestas formales y organizativas. Relacionada con la ideología de la masa popular como el protagonista de la historia, con la […]

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 […]

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 […]

Egg Chair. Arne Jacobsen | Borja López Cotelo

When crossing the door of the Radisson SAS, hotel, on the bustling Vesterbrogade avenue, something strange happens. Time seems suspended. On the other side of the street, the Tivoli faces its dreamlike exuberance to the strict geometry that Arne Jacobsen drew for his tower in the Center of Copenhagen. But in the lobby of the Radisson, everything seems to respond […]

Ant Chair. Arne Jacobsen | Borja López Cotelo

Arne Jacobsen considered himself, above all, an architect. But the transcendence of his furniture has made him recognized as an industrial designer, something he always tried to escape. Jacobsen believed that design, architecture and the arts could function as a whole, according to the ideas of gesamtkunstwerk. This ideal of artistic synthesis led him to design the chair 3100 for […]

Unstable equilibrium | Íñigo García Odiaga

It is said that the classical Greek sculpture reached its maximum splendor when it began to use the contrapposto. This Italian term could be defined as the relation that the different parts of the body establish when initiating the movement. The weight of the body rests mainly on one leg, so that the corresponding hip rises with respect to the […]

The roads of water | Íñigo García Odiaga

The territories are generally sculpted by water. Its absence or abundance determines the appearance of the landscape in which the architectures are inserted, which are nothing more than a small obstacle in the slow flow of water along the surface of the earth. Juan Navarro Baldeweg knows it well, and summed up this idea in the installation and in the […]

Papal chairs | Elías Cueto – Xosé Suárez

The aspect and the history of the chairs of “his holiness” are illustrative of the claimed dignity to which they serve as seat. Of between the used ones for the pontiffs it emphasizes “the gestatoria”. Left definitively by Juan Paul II, it is the obliged modal in what to papal chairs it refers.

Dussart Pedrón Winery | Crux Arquitectos

En la línea de tiempo de las edificaciones hay muchas vidas diferentes, y todas marcan de alguna manera a las siguientes. Las mismas construcciones, los mismos paisajes, en momentos diferentes son percibidas de manera diferente; vividas, al fin y al cabo, bajo otras circunstancias. En esas vidas, además de pasar por usos diferentes, transformaciones, abandonos y renacimientos, se pasa por […]

The Soviet circus | Jelena Prokopljević

The circus was the most popular and most egalitarian stage art of the USSR that unlike theater, ballet or music, did not require any previous education. Their functions were cheap, simple and fun, they did not deal with existential issues if it was not for comedy. In many cities of the USSR and the allied countries fixed equipment was built, […]

House MM in Leciñena | Sergio Sebastián Franco

Large wooden doors closed the patios of the monegrine houses, jealously defending, together with the high plastered walls, the domestic life from the dust and aridity of the desert of Aragon. Big doors that allowed the entry of the wagons and the horses with which the cereals were cultivated, and which, once exceeded, contained all the functions, from the living, […]

Usually a project involves creating something out of nothing; but sometimes, as in this case, it is about strengthening something that was already there. A long stone building, with a powerful balcony facing the valley, to the north. An elevated shed leaning on a warped and also excessively long wood beam, with three facades made out of stone and one […]
