Public space as a battlefield | Javier Mozas

Public space was for Hannah Arendt, 1906-1975, a place for Action.1 Arendt believed that democracy needed to be exercised in the public realm, that it was useless to enact it in the private space of the household. Action has two very different resources: one peaceful, the other violent. One using Words and the other Battle; that is, Discourse and War. […]

The ministries of 1984 | Jorge Gorostiza

Studying the cities and armored buildings against the aerial bombings, I remembered the design with a warhead shape made by Terence Verity,, the scenographer of the movie 1984 (Michael Anderson, 1956), for the London ministries, which George Orwell describes in his novel: “The Ministry of Truth: it was different, to an astonishing extent, from any other object that came to view.” […]

Window, façade, balcony, corridor, fireplace, stair, escalator, elevator: the book seeks to excavate the micro-narratives of building detail.The result is no single history, but rather the web of origins, contaminations, similarities, and differences in architectural evolution, […]

The architecture in front of the death of the art | José Ramón Hernández Correa

The artistic forefronts always have looked at the architecture of an ambiguous way. On one hand, the artists (painters, sculptors, photographers, poets, musicians …) they have had always the label hung of chisgarabises, and have sought with zeal to put in his troupe some architect, who seemed to give him venerability to the group or movement that was. (An architect […]

The order highlights the need to solve a new commercial building in a peripheral environment with a scattered fabric dominated by single-family homes without a predominant typology. It is crucial to respond to the aspirations of being an object with identity but at the same time integrated into the environment. The proposal is formalized as a rocky prism that, in […]

To the stairs one has to look at her abreast. To attack his tracing walking of backs – or of side – a sudden loss of the balance might suppose1.

Lessons of the archetype | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

To beginning of the 20s in Germany, a notable group of traditionalist architects establish – in an individual way – a model sachlich, objectively, for the project of architecture1. Actually, the objectivity arises from the common acceptance of an archetype, a symbolic origin that forms a part of the unconscious group in a certain context.

Do we use correctly the language the architects? | Stepienybarno

Affinity in contrast | Marcelo Gardinetti

“It seems to me that the problem in which we find ourselves today is to rethink our relationship with historical buildings. It is necessary to move from an attitude that is evasive and increasingly distant, typical of protection-conservation, to an attitude of projective intervention. It seems to me that what must be done is to reconsider whether there is not […]

Analogies of total art | Marcelo Gardinetti

“There is an old time consciousness, and there is a new one. The first attends to individualism. The new tends toward the universal”.

Projecting with nature | Guido Cimadomo

Every time I find more interest in immersing myself in nature than in visiting the latest examples of author architecture. On a recent trip to Australia, a European architect marveled that he had not planned to visit the Sydney Opera House. Despite the distances of the Australian continent, seemed scandalized in my interest for nature, for the forests of the […]

The language of the architects (II) | Stepienybarno

Today, we want to stop centring this descent to land of our “celestial” architectural ideas. The simplicity in the language and the use and abuse of metaphors to explain the architecture will be the guide for of this small text.

The language of the architects (I) | Stepienybarno

Why when certain architects speak they there is not understood practically anything of what they want to say and not even other architects are we capable of knowing where the shots go? And what happens when a person foreign to the architecture hears speaking to the architects “about his things”? “The architecture neither is, nor behaves as a language; it […]
