The habitat city | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

The City has turned progressively and probably from the Industrial Revolution, in a luck of great predator on the way. His paper as revitalizing agent of the economic and cultural activity of the world, the progress, has formed conurbations of consumption, mega-structures disconnected of the cycles of the nature, the energy or the resources. The Generic City weighs too much […]

The beautiful thing and the Sinister thing | Miquel Lacasta

In zones of comfort, that is to say, in known environments, parametrized in advance or structured before in the mind of the individuals, the opposite dualities can manage to make sense. I refer to dualities of the type full or empty, black or white, opened or enclosure, etc. These opposite or exclusive dualities, there work because the recipient of the […]

The analogous statement of Aldo Rossi | Marcelo Gardinetti

In the second half of the 20th century, the architectural search of postwar period strains for reaching an alternative offer of the modernity.

Peepholes and telescopes | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

The look crosses the contemporary city a bit lost between signs, asphalt, walls and luminous labels: impermeable surfaces. The system also shows inaccessible hollows as the foreign window from which to be able to feel discreetly observed. The urban eye scarcely penetrates a couple of meters in the shop windows, the interior of a vehicle, the black after the window […]

Of the (architectural) ellipses | Pedro Hernández

In 1996, Bernard Tschumi writes ‘Violence of Architecture’ –a chapter of the book Architecture and disjunction– in the one that he presents to the architecture as an element in constant tension: between the body that occupies the space and the geometry that it contains to the body.

The captivates city | Marc Chalamanch

“La arquitectura, la ciudad, característica del movimiento moderno, se ha estructurado mayoritariamente en un explícito reflejo de las jerarquías económicas (producción y consumo) de la sociedad.

Theories and history of the contemporary city

The contemporary city is an uncertain creature. His condition of sumatorio of social and economic, cultural and political, temporary and spatial variables turns her into a multiple puff-pastry difficult to apprehend.

La batalla cotidiana | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

In occasions a fragment hides the traces of the totality. The vibration of the paved one, the diversity of his scales, the sheen of the low light on the broken profile of each and every of the pieces, the soil represents somehow the territory of the whole city, the soil as set of trodden, the country as an amalgam of […]

Sobre el arte de hacer ciudades y Richard Sennett | Miquel Lacasta

One supports that it is a discursive space, in which the strangers speak between yes; and other one defends that it is a question of a space of the sight, where the persons interact visually, not verbally.
