Yellow is the new white | Conjuntos Empáticos

Este pabellón, localizado en el exterior, formó parte del festival de arte Cohete Toledo, en su edición de 2018. Con su instalación, pretende visibilizar un espacio vacío, sin uso, en el Parque del Tránsito, porque todo lugar, por muy predispuesto que pueda parecer a su uso, no es más que una in-atmósfera en ausencia de elementos que faciliten su apropiación.

Philatelic caprice n º 1 (august license) | arquitectamoslocos?

In a previous post, entitled “The best scribe …“, to note how much the Finns appreciated Alvar Aalto, I put a postage stamp and a banknote.

The fact that a personage appears in a stamp or in a […]

La construcción del techo | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

Algunos arquitectos han dedicado una gran parte de sus vidas a la construcción del techo. Sin duda Miguel Fisac fue uno de ellos. Entiéndase el techo no como la mera cobertura superior de un edificio, no como la simple superficie horizontal que nos acoge.

Silla BKF Chair | Borja López Cotelo

Evasión del espacio | Pedro Hernández

En un texto reciente, publicado en la web de Vice, Dane Scott se pregunta sobre el porqué del éxito actual de la iluminación neón. Si bien el artículo obedece más a lo divulgativo y, por tanto, sólo se centra en repasar ciertos aspectos del tema — en el texto no aparecen, por ejemplo, ni la historia del desarrollo y expansión de […]

Silla Thonet número 14 | Borja López Cotelo

The chair number 14 emerged from the factory of Michael Thonet in 1859. He did not receive a name, he simply identified with the number 14 according to practical criteria.

In 1917 the cartography of the new Europe was drawn to the rhythm of the Allied cannons. Gerrit T. Rietveld, busy in the daily work of his furniture workshop in Utrech, remained oblivious to this reality. He preferred to draw the plans of a new chair. Gerrit T.

Domestic Strangers (I): The Extraordinary Houses by Kiyoto Ota | Pedro Hernández
