They are spaces or surrounding territories fighting at the same time against the outside that with the own necessity to grow like other communities in more stable situations.

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 […]

Dreams of Ascension | Miquel Lacasta

The act of ascending is part of a gesture that humanity has made day and night since the earth inhabits. Looking at the sky in search of answers and omens or simply be amazed by the overwhelming spectacle of a starry night are acts that are repeated as a constant throughout our lives. These minimal gestures are the gateway to […]

Containment walls | Íñigo García Odiaga

Probablemente la foto más conocida de la guerra fría es la capturada por Peter Leibing el 15 de agosto de 1961. La imagen refleja el instante en el que el suboficial de la guardia de fronteras de la Alemania Oriental, Conrad Schumann, salta el muro de Berlín, aún en construcción en el sector francés de la capital Alemana.

Opportunity limits | Íñigo García Odiaga

Border spaces, barriers and links. The old frontiers, geopolitical barriers that operated from the territorial expression of the sovereignty of a country, are blurred at present, configuring intermediate spaces, which define areas of opportunity. They are also the regions in conflict, which show more clearly the tensions and concentrations of activity that borders introduce into the territorial continuum. While these […]

Urban discrimination | Aldo G. Facho Dede

According to the UN, violence is a form of discrimination that inhibits the ability to enjoy equal rights and freedoms. Although gender violence, given the alarming figures, is one of the most visible issues today, there are other types of acts that affect and endanger our lives every day, and whose scale of responsibility exceeds that of a particular subject.

The electronic intruder. TV in the architectural space

Today the viewer is no longer a passive subject that supports what the channels emit, but he chooses his own programming, thanks to the fact that the television also receives what is broadcast by other devices. Despite this, the television receiver is still an artifact with which we live in all houses and in most public establishments. In this moment […]

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 […]

En Brasil, en medio de la nada, se construyó uno de los proyectos arquitectónicos más audaces de la Historia.

Pero cincuenta años después, el centro de Brasilia es caro […]

Benidorm Station | HULOT arch. Studio

Architecture is directly linked and interrelated to the concept of routine. We cohabitate with and within it every day, every hour and from this coexistence appear attachments and detachments. Normally, we wake up in the same place, we go to work in one or several locations, and to complete this habitual circle we shelter ourselves at home. Routine is a […]

Esquizo. Ricardo Bofill, Paolo Portoghesi and José Luis Guarner | Jorge Gorostiza

It often happens that looking for something in a newspaper or magazine, you will find something else, sometimes more interesting, than the one originally wanted. This has happened recently in the newspaper library of La Vanguardia, where I found an article that links two architects with a film and a film critic. The architects are Paolo Portoghesi and Ricardo Bofill, the film […]

Building bridges between society and architects | Stepienybarno

What is the distance that separates architecture from society? Or rather to the architects of the society we should serve. On this topic we have tried to get into other post and we believe that it is one of the most important keys to solve today. Architecture is something that, in principle, should matter to everyone, because there is no […]
