Architecture-Art (I) | Óscar Tenreiro Degwitz

It seems to be completely unnecessary to wonder today if the Architecture is or not an Art, question that was very present in the sixties immediately after the effort of the Marxist sectors to insist on his utilitarian condition qualifying the “artistic” vision as a nineteenth-century diversion.

The city is of all

“If the proclamation of which the city must be for all turns out to be necessary it is because one forgets often the last justification of our trade: that the architecture is not but the manifestation of a knowledge that has to be solidary and generous.

Swiss imprecision. 54ª Biennial of Venice

Bice Curiger considers for 54 ª Biennial of Venice a slightly ingenuous, remote perspective of fluttering of the current world. He has constructed a sure space for a slightly troubled art.
