De cómo el mundo se convirtió en ciudad | Marc Chalamanch

“La Ciudad Ideal, fruto del pensamiento, no es otra cosa que el enunciado de un discurso que construye el enunciado de una ciudad real, proyectándola sobre la pantalla de la idealización. Esta aporía esconde una rica ambigüedad.” Italo Calvino (Delfante, 2006:11) La ciudad explica la historia y la evolución de la humanidad. Desde los primeros asentamientos urbanos hace unos 6000 […]

Architectures on the border and border | Luis Gil

If the edge, as a boundary or border, can only be approached by force (energy in a pure state without cultivating) or the strategy attached to its concretion, the technique (the invention that allows acting to deceive adversity), history architectures gestated at the border it has also materialized in a double formalization. In this way, the border and border space […]

The border of contact, encounter and exchange space | Luis Gil

The intrinsic nature of the border is that of being an area of danger, an insecure space in which the development of the essential tasks of life requires a state of continuous alertness. It is the space for the exchange of energy, where it is released or integrated into new areas, which implies a constant rebalancing of the forces acting […]

The plan as a tool for border overflow | Luis Gil

The border as a tense space that opposes its transit, requires effort, determination, formal or fundamental change to be transgressed and overcome or inhabited temporarily or continuously. Thus, the passage through the border or the limit, the jump from one medium to another implies the discovery of a technique that makes possible the survival in the other margin, the change, […]

The border, artificial and invented mechanism | Luis Gil

In this way when the natural barrier (the geographical accident) artificially used to protect the interior ecosystem, is insufficient, inadequate or non-existent for the desired economic or social use, then man develops not only artificiality over the natural but also takes a step more and build an ex-novo border. It is an invention that saves the natural deficiency, and around […]

Limits, nature and artifice | Luis Gil

When talking about limit or border, the words of bankruptcy or separation are instantly added to the conversation. A first approach to the definition of boundary or border spaces, would limit them as those areas of emptiness or obstacle that are shaped or structured as a nature that is little or not practicable, in which the movement slows down or […]

Mastery as a fundamental and physical problem of boundary and border phenomena | Luis Gil

The movement and walking is innate to the activity of man, for various reasons, from the great migrations and movements in the search for Paleolithic hunting to the present day. A movement that was originally forced by the need to survive against the adverse nature, much earlier than the subsequent sedentary and articulation of man with the territory through the […]

Allegory of the border and the limit | Luis Gil

The neoliberal actuality that we have had to live makes it difficult, like no other, to refer behaviors, events and attitudes to a stable horizon, a concrete framework that serves as an articulator, as an element of dialogue and background to the analysis of a hardly acotable contemporaneity, nothing defined and a rapid emptying of contents, whose ultimate goal seems […]

The distinctive modernity of Norman Foster | Marcelo Gardinetti

Far from the process of ambiguous and controversial representation promoted by the postmodern convulsion that dominated the architectural scene of the early 80s, the work of Norman Foster, aligned with the thought of Richard Rogers and Renzo Piano, was promulgated in favor of a technological update of the modernity. His work ponders the mechanical analogies of the modern movement and […]

The drawn city | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

The city constitutes an inexhaustible source of information on us. His arrested observation reveals landscapes in continuous transformation, landscapes in movement: transitory landscapes. The drawing as cognitive instrument of the urban decanting, acts from one of the most former tools that are known: the perspective, the point of view from which the matter, a point is considered or analyzes anyone […]
