In search of coherence | Óscar Tenreiro Degwitz

It is not because the Royal Institute of British Architects in 2009 had dedicated lectures and analytical studies, the reason we are interested in the Le Corbusier holiday shelter built in Roquebrune-Cap Martin on the shores of the French Mediterranean. It has always captured our attention because it represents what seems to be scarce at the present time in the […]

Everything reaches the sea | Óscar Tenreiro Degwitz

“Nothing is transmissible but Thought” is the title of the last text written by Le Corbusier before his death in 1965. A phrase that explains in a very complete way the reason why the legacy of this man has had irreplaceable character for the development of architecture.

Learn from what has been | Óscar Tenreiro Degwitz

Architects can not form without knowing, and learning to love, what preceded us. A young woman who recently wrote that she cared little about Ronchamp and that she preferred the most current, will be able to become a draftsman, a CAD technician, a construction assistant, but to be an architect she will have to adopt a higher level of reflection. […]

Another essential Brazilian | Óscar Tenreiro Degwitz

This wandering through the legacy of Oscar Niemeyer takes one to the Brazilian culture. And within it architecture as an accepted expression, promoted and integrated into a kind of national “being”. Because that journey of centennial and exceptional man is also the path of a culture. To verify what has been said, it is enough to refer to Lucio Costa […]

In the field of architecture, the ascent towards their labor consideration was staggered: it was incorporated, in the first instance, through disciplines such as interior design, furniture and various decorations. This lecture series will feature four pioneers whose careers gave a new meaning to architecture: Eileen Gray […]

The deformed form | Íñigo García Odiaga

In the first glimpse something does not fit, but for against, the set radiates an attractive magnetism. Jean Prouvé constructed together with Charlotte Perriand this prototype for the Lounge of Domestic Arts opposite to the Grand Palais of Paris. Time later it was dismantled, but still some images and schemes remain. Designed for workers of the oil taken root in […]

The pioneering arquitect women: the presence of the absence (XI) | Cristina García-Rosales

The pioneering arquitect women: the presence of the absence (X) | Cristina García-Rosales I have tried to discover a few arquitectas and designers not known for the great public, who maybe design with another look, placing the human being in the center of his projects, that is to say, to the user.

The pioneering arquitect women: the presence of the absence (VII) | Cristina García-Rosales Now Lina Bo Bardi wanted to have a brief recollection for the italo-Brazilian arquitecta. Well it can be said that, together with Eileen Gray, it shaped the feminine side of the modernity. Lina was born in Rome in 1914 and died in Sao Paulo in 1992. He […]

The pioneering arquitect women: the presence of the absence (VI) | Cristina García-Rosales Now, and by means of a few slight brushstrokes, I would like to mention another great pioneering European arquitecta: Margarete Schütte-Lihotzky, deceased on January 23, 2000 in a hospital of Vienna, when it was on the verge of expiring 103 years. This arquitecta specialized herself in the […]

The pioneering arquitect women: the presence of the absence (IV) | Cristina García-Rosales Let’s be going to know now another arquitecta and another type of architecture, inside the same epoch. To the “house at the edge of the sea” or “E.1027”, and to the Irish Eileen Gray who constructed it between 1926 and 1929, being his more important work. To […]

The pioneering arquitect women: the presence of the absence (III) | Cristina García-Rosales Let’s do a jump in the history and of 1900 let’s go to 1920-30, to the so called happy years 20. Though there am assumed that these years belonged to the woman, only they corresponded to them in certain cliches: as that of woman“garcon” smoking a cigarette, […]

Portraits across the eyes of a near-sighted person (I) | epR

The raven man. A good day, Charles-Edouard Jeanneret-Gris decided that, in forward, would be called Le Corbusier. It decided also that already it would not be Swiss but French, and turned into raven – ¿or was it a magpie?-. It glided weightlessly between the writing, the painting and the architecture, settled in the gleaming shoulders of his cousin Pierre, of […]
