Akropolis Now | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

A small professional assignment has led me these days to find careers with a future. It was my first time. I confess that the information found after a first search, reaches a greater relevance in terms of the trend it draws than in terms of the information itself: upward races vs. declining races, skills vs. vocations, techniques vs. thoughts, practices […]

Urban discrimination | Aldo G. Facho Dede

According to the UN, violence is a form of discrimination that inhibits the ability to enjoy equal rights and freedoms. Although gender violence, given the alarming figures, is one of the most visible issues today, there are other types of acts that affect and endanger our lives every day, and whose scale of responsibility exceeds that of a particular subject.

Clouds | Sergio de Miguel

“There will not be a single thing that is not a cloud. They are the cathedrals of vast stone and biblical crystals that time will pave. It is the Odyssey, which changes like the sea. There is something different every time we open it”. Clouds (I). Jorge Luis Borges Human thought is a mystery. It supports a variety of unimaginable […]

La Gran Vía de Madrid. Breve biografía crítica de una gran calle (VI) | Antón Capitel

El edificio Madrid-París ocupa con especial atractivo una posición intermedia del tramo segundo y horizontal de la Gran Vía, en la acera Sur, o de los números pares. La singularidad del edificio procede sobre todo de haber sido primero un edificio más bajo (de 7 alturas más unos torreones en las esquinas) y de haber sido, más adelante, prácticamente duplicado, […]

Architecture, design and society in the early Modern Period

It is not possible to understand the meaning of architectural masterpieces built throughout history without first understanding the meaning of “being an architect” and how his activity developed. The use of the copy of drawings, the importance of treaties for the transmission of knowledge, the meaning of the centralized plant or the importance of mathematics and geometry in the diary […]

The Gran Vía of Madrid. Brief critical biography of a great street (V) | Antón Capitel

The third section, descendant, as if referring to the most hurried new times, was made as we said from the thirties to the fifties; that is, leaving the terrible civil war behind. The Gran Vía, unfinished, contemplated and suffered the bombings of the Franco military from the Casa de Campo, and those of German aircraft, and the Telefonica building, still […]

The Gran Vía of Madrid. Brief critical biography of a great street (IV) | Antón Capitel

At the end of the second section and beginning of the third there was a high-interest spatial and formal episode, the Plaza del Callao, which can also be considered as a “fourth act” of the total “theater” that Gran Vía supposes. Or if you prefer, and because of its uniqueness, a theater of your own. An intense and independent scene, […]

Sierra House | Steyn Studio

As the name alludes, this house adopted its nickname from its distinct roof profile. ‘Sierra’ meaning both ‘saw’ and ‘mountain range’ in Spanish. A fortunate coincidence as the house is located between Madrid’s north-westerly neighbourhoods of Mirasierra (look at mountain) and Montecarmelo (Mount Carmel). The shape of the roof is a result of internal spatial requirements. Due to height restrictions, […]

The Gran Vía of Madrid. Brief critical biography of a great street (III) | Antón Capitel

El segundo tramo (o segundo “acto” del “teatro”), de la red de San Luis a la Plaza del Callao, contaba con una notable ventaja, la condición horizontal y recta, lo que hizo que su imagen urbana sea la mejor, y en la que puede imponerse más el propio espacio urbano vacío como tal, sin que sea demasiado necesaria la relativa […]

The Gran Vía of Madrid. Brief critical biography of a great street (II) | Antón Capitel

El primer tramo de la Gran Vía, que asciende –dando con ello una cierta sensación de fatiga, como si se rememorara la dificultad que se tuvo para iniciarla-, comienza con el gran edificio singular que fue el de la Unión y El Fénix (Alcalá 39, arqtos. Jules y Raymond Fevrier, 1905-10, hoy “Metrópolis” y anterior, en realidad, a la avenida), […]

The Gran Vía of Madrid. Brief critical biography of a great street (I) | Antón Capitel

Madrid nació en el oeste de lo que hoy es el casco antiguo, justamente en el lugar del palacio, en el mismo borde de la cresta militar sobre el río Manzanares. Y se extendió hacia unos terrenos de accidentada topografía, lo que provocó desde el principio su irregularidad planimétrica, agravada también por la complicada configuración del trazado de los caminos y […]

VAD 02. Call for Papers. The prototypes

Si en el primer número de VAD. veredes, arquitectura y divulgación se descansaba la mirada en “los inicios”, en aquellos comienzos y principios que proporcionan de manera tangible o simbólica lo que desea existir, ahora se quiere explorar con amplitud los parámetros pertenecientes a los orígenes. Ese surgir, nacer y aparecer, donde germina la arquitectura. “La naturaleza será cambiada por […]

¿Cuál es la arquitectura del futuro?

En Brasil, en medio de la nada, se construyó uno de los proyectos arquitectónicos más audaces de la Historia. Se trata de Brasilia, la capital de un país que, a principios de los años 60, buscaba un nuevo comienzo. Brasilia iba a demostrar que la arquitectura puede transformar la sociedad. Pero cincuenta años después, el centro de Brasilia es caro […]

Los procesos Re- como expiación | Javier Mozas

La Humanidad ha consolidado, a lo largo del tiempo, una morbosa relación de amor y odio con la Naturaleza. Admiración y contemplación, o dominio y sometimiento. En la conferencia que pronuncia Rem Koolhaas en Harvard el 3 de abril de 2009 bajo el título Sustainability: advancement versus apocalypse,1 mostró en las primeras imágenes, una pintura de Caspar David Friedrich, 1774-1840, […]

Building bridges between society and architects | Stepienybarno

What is the distance that separates architecture from society? Or rather to the architects of the society we should serve. On this topic we have tried to get into other post and we believe that it is one of the most important keys to solve today. Architecture is something that, in principle, should matter to everyone, because there is no […]

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 […]
