Anecdotal and “light approximation” to Andrew Geller | Fernando Freire Forga

Returning to the individualism and the personal appraisals, which I have learned in the practice is that it is “I please for everything” and the clients do not know of architecture and do not have why to know: they did not study the career. The responsibility is in the architect who is left to go for commercial topics and who […]

Catacresis of architecture | Marcelo Gardinetti

Frank Gehry’s work is deliberately singular. One declares in favour of the representation of a confused and disintegrated environment that it reflects his own vision of the city. His buildings countersign these characters by means of the assembly of dissimilar, fragmented, decorative elements, foreign to any established order. It uses of visual ambiguities, colors and textures to compose the objet […]

Everything it has a beginning | Jorge Meijide

Everything it has a beginning The architecture endures to live and to live endures, inexcusably, the inhabitant. Without this one we can speak about sculpture, about certain artistic facilities or about formal games, all of them of indisputable value propositivo, but difficultly we can speak about architecture in his more wide and extensive expression. This one to live carries a […]

Three melodies of Le Corbusier | Marcelo Gardinetti

The break of the conceptions academicistas produced by the pictorial revolution of ends of the 19th century and fundamentally the search of the most important interpreters of the cubism obsessed for representing the depth in two dimensions, created a new universe of images that gave origin to numerous artistic currents.

Major safety needs better public space | Martin Marcos

Is it possible to add up from another look to discipline to such a complex and urgent problem? Can good public space induce social behaviors and make a city surer?

Tomb and Monument | Íñigo García Odiaga

Was saying Adolf Loos, that only there is a small part of the architecture that belongs to the art: the funeral monument and the commemorative monument. Everything else, that one that serves for an end, that one that has a concrete functionality, to live, to work, leisure, had to remain excluded from the kingdom of the art.

Models of architecture exist, tests before the final construction where they make concrete, contributing material and time, the terms that will allow to solve in a more suitable way the project.
