Londres, the biggest capital of Europe | Antón Capitel

London had a double birth. On the one hand, there was London proper, what is now known as the City, the city of the merchants and the bourgeoisie, and the city also of the Cathedral, of the bishop. This was the first and most important population, which was not the seat of government, but of commerce, and which had and […]

Populism is defeated in the city | Óscar Tenreiro Degwitz

It is true that the urban environment, we said last week, influences the citizen in a way that creates differences between individuals, differences that can separate, exclude, be a factor of unrest and tension. The education of the urban man, and as a consequence of it the improvement of the quality of his family life, has to have like objective […]

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 […]

Radiant city. Attacked Le Corbusier | Pedro Hernández

Any model is an exploration to future, a promise, a desire, the ideal image of a thought of what will have to be the architecture. Architecture before the architecture or architecture without a place or architecture in any place. Constructing a model is to anticipate this future; it is to establish in advance (and without risk of being wrong) a […]

Lebbeus Woods’s alternative world | Marcelo Gardinetti

During his professional life, Lebbeus Woods sketched thoughts. The images that it produced incorporate observations of an improbable future. It moves on suggestive ideas that are not submitted to the rules of the company. On the contrary, it questions them. His representations, inhabitants of an inhospitable territory, personify his singular ontology. Floating structures and mobile constructions that compose a statement […]

Populism (III) Portela dixit | Óscar Tenreiro Degwitz

The Mission Housing is a program with so many omissions and improvisations as the enormous investments that it has demanded. It was conceived and he manages the affairs privately, between political and professional relatives subject to confidentiality, and progresses with the economic, juridical and professional irrationality that has done to itself characteristic of the Venezuelan petroestado. There do not exist […]

Populism (II) | Óscar Tenreiro Degwitz

When I was studying architecture we had a Cuban teacher called Ricardo Porro Hudalgo (1925-2014), who should construct in the pro-Castro Cuba a few years later one of few works of worthy architecture of mention in the half century of Cuban revolution, a school of art with vaults of brick that has been very praised. Lazy, Marxist militant in this […]

The city as game | José Ramón Hernández Correa

One of the movements of forefront? Of the half of the 20th century International Lyricist was. I had not heard speaking about them, and I am finding out now, reading the book El Puño Invisible, by Carlos Granés. The dadá and the surrealism left his seeds of unpredictability, illogical and I take things as a joke, that, joined the boredom and the […]

From the Utopian failure | Pedro Hernández

The architecture for yes same is unable to put solution to the males of the company. For much that has existed during great part of the 20th century an effort from the theory for claiming the autonomy of the discipline, today we know that the architecture limits itself, actually, in a complex process that is affected by the economic thing, […]

Flat and parallel | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

In occasions the man lives strange territories, inhospitable as a frozen desert, hostile as the chill wind of the glaciers. For some strange reason, we have belonged to these places and have adapted to his nature from the coat, the culture or the management of the ecosystems. The architecture means to understand in the first instance the environmental consequences of […]

‘While there is death there is hope’, was affirming Fabrizio Corbera, the terse prince of Lampedusa’s novel. Nevertheless the cemeteries, these cities of the dead men, reproduce the same excesses and desigualdades that his analogous cities of alive: some have to be piled up or to share an exiguous piece of land in order that to his side the big […]

Some time ago that to travel stopped being an experience to turn into a business. The tourism is a part of a system that turns a culture into product, a country into brand. And, certainly, the laws of the market demand that everything is comfortable and immediate. Nevertheless, the ruins, as the cities, are neither restaurants of snack food nor […]

The city (II) | epR

Everything has changed before we were realizing. Obsessed for satisfying needs that even it makes small they did not exist, we happen the days jumping obstacles that we themselves have placed in the way; we entrust ourselves to the artifice while we see how the recollection of the world disfigures itself that some day was. Sometimes I think that maybe […]

The city (I) | epR

I have seen it here and there: a fishing port in the middle of the great city. Buenos Aires, Marseilles, Copenhagen. I have looked at it with disdain, since to this toy that already I do not use because I have made myself major, since to the grandfather kept silent on the corner of the table. I forgot to wonder […]
