The same and the different | Sergio de Miguel

“Nadie come naranjas bajo la luna llena”. Federico García Lorca When we have to proceed, in any area, we do so through distinctions, through disjunctive elections. Then we try to discern broad categories. Often involuntary. But what we always distinguish, by pure instinct, is everything that relates and unites in front of what separates and separates. What is proper and […]

Conversation | Sergio de Miguel

We could think that when we use the term conversation we approach to describe what we understand for dialog, and for extension for monologue, but actually they are distant expressions. To have a conversation remains removed of giving or imposing logics or dual or individual challenges. Emparenta of more precise form in spite of gathering in crowds meaningfully to proceed […]

The dibrujo | Sergio de Miguel

“In hands of the architect, the la’piz constitutes a bridge between the mind that he imagines and the image that appears in the leaf of paper; in the ecstasy of the work, the draftsman forgets both his hand and the pencil and the image emerges as if it was an automatic projection of the mind that he imagines; or probably […]

Sorting out toys | Sergio de Miguel

There are universes, ours is one, where there are joined a countless number of diverse presences. They join, are connected, congregate, gather in crowds, and sometimes they are accumulated. Often they agglomerate and assemble, are gathered and pile up, even they are packed in not measurable quantities. Then we tend to produce, inevitably, meaningful connections, links, binds and links. Orders. […]

The air is weightless | Sergio de Miguel

As the ocean is formed especially by water, the architecture is done principally by air. Even so that determines what happens in the ocean, and in the architecture, is not another thing that what is not a water, or air. Continent and content are never unlike, remote, and coincidental. When we refer to the matter with which the architecture is […]

Opportunity | Sergio de Miguel

The most valuable quality of any action propositiva is to have a measured approach and an elegant intention with which to affect emotionally. To manage to wake up associations that stimulate the thought. To be capable of understanding the solution of a guessed right and suitable way. To distinguish profitable resources and to find the keys that explain the ideal […]

The bicycle | Sergio de Miguel

Let’s fix us in the bicycle. This beautiful ma’quina. His result has managed to be so polished and exact that scarcely it has had to change in de’cadas. His slow development has not allowed another thing that the ambitious sofisticacio’n of his components. One could not have modified the quality and quantity of his pieces, or systems of pieces. As […]

In many processes of investigation that we carry out to find the real possibilities of action it depends on our capacity identifying and distinguishing.

Opening one to examine intensely, one to ascend on having been able to […]

On-tuición | Sergio de Miguel

Our nature has provided an innate skill to us. The aptitude to use a type of deep, perceptive and inexplicable knowledge, for which we manage to understand and imagine realities without having to come to elaborated reasonings. A luck of instantaneous creativity that, showing him independently from the acquired knowledge, shows secretly sometimes as a happy hunch and always as […]

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 […]

From the paradigm of the complexity | axonometrica

If we assume easily for that the architecture always his boss, his model has looked in the nature to continuing, when not to imitating, and that historically always there has been one symbiosis between the natural thing and the architectural thing, we will agree that a substantial change in the conception of the nature, he will carry necessarily a substantial […]

Sciences of the complexity: A common logic with the architecture | axonometrica

Apart from the origin or the cultural common substratum, the sciences of the complexity share certain common features with the architecture that arises in the decade of the 60s and that we can follow even today, that reinforce precisely this both cultural and social base. Briefly we might say that the sciences of the complexity and the theoretical reflections and […]

The architectural appropriation of the sciences of the complexity | axonometrica

Along the 20th century the concept of complexity has been joining practically all the areas of the knowledge. The reality is complex, the relations between different bodies of to know are complex, one speaks about the theory of complex systems, about the paradigm of the complexity and about the sciences of the complexity. Many of the previous concepts, though they […]

From the complex thing. Symbol and Behavior | Miquel Lacasta

From the complex thing. Symbol and Behavior. Annotatting the reflections it brings over of the complexity, they are necessary two categories that they send to the idea of the intersubjective thing. In many of the previous texts and surely in future texts, the intersubjective thing is present of underlying form. The idea of intersubjectivity divides of stating the mistake of […]

Of the complex thing. Ambiguity, Difference, Time | Miquel Lacasta

Of the complex thing. Ambiguity, Difference, Time. Speaking about the complex thing is inabarcable. It would come to be like to trace the mythical cartographic map to scale 1:1 to that Borges was referring in the story Of The Rigor of the Science.1 The task, would need such a precise description, that the described object and the description itself would […]

Of the complex thing. Previous considerations | Miquel Lacasta

Fragile L’ordre of l’arquitectura, the fragile order of the architecture, is Joaquim Español’s delicious doctoral thesis defended in the year 1993 and directed by the philosopher Xavier Rubert de Ventós. In her of delicate and extraordinarily well written form, nevertheless Spanish is equally a poet, and therefore, an expert in handling the instrument of the writing, guides us across what […]

Of the Contextual thing, the Constructive thing and the Complex thing | Miquel Lacasta

The architecture should be defined by his practice. A polyhedric practice understood as a rigorous attempt of contextualizar an eminently intellectual work in the area of the architectural project and his later necessary execution. The architecture has a conceptual vocation to produce a critical comprehension of a conjuncture, a specificity, an episode. And this commitment for dealing and cosificar a […]

The flag of the Japan | Sergio de Michael

There is a dilemma appellant who is of what doing with a point in a plane. What supposes positioning an abundance inside an emptiness. Since it is logical, this one is to question that not only belongs to the area of the architecture. Though particularly in the architecture it is given to very often. Since it is logical, this one […]

The nature of the change. The nature of change you have changed | Miquel Lacasta

Surely it cannot be said that everything should happen in the decade of the 60, but yes one can affirm that this one was a decade of big changes, of big social transformations, changes, that today we can observe how they are more alive than never. Looking backward, it is easy to recognize significant transformations that have his origin in […]

In favour of the perplexity | Sergio de Michael

Between the ignorance and the certainty, between the skepticism and the dogmatism, a territory, a very fertile disturbance exists. Subtle. It tightens. The luckiest mental condition of the complicated game of intentions, vaguenesses, preferences, calculations and feelings into which any creative search turns. Any vital attitude. It is a question of an internal sigh encouraged by the doubt, the surprise […]

Towards a new contextuality | Miquel Lacasta Codorniu

One of the possible origins of a certain revival contextualista might relapse, as affirms Eduard Bru, in the fact that the place1 has happened to be more interesting something, more active and propositivo, while city and geography, they have been mixed ineluctablemente, offering an environment much more inciting than the strictly urban one which we were having a decade behind.2 […]

It is habitual that in the books of theory and it tells the history of the architecture of the housings turn out to be represented only for his rooms of being, leaving of side the rest of rooms. It seemed that, in spite of his major number, the bedroom did not have any transcendency in a housing. Simply it is […]

Of clouds and black boxes | Marcelo Gardinetti

Even considering the scanty commitment of the new ismos with regard to the ideology of normalization and production in series promoted by the teachers of the Modern Movement, the fact that more difference generates with that period is the indetermination of the form that there assume the buildings designed by the most popularized actors of the current production. The concept […]

The functionality, the comfort, the mode and the language of the architects | Antón Capitel

Is functionality the same thing that comfort? Not gentleman, they can be perfectly opposite. In the stage through that we live one takes the comfort, and not so much the functionality, and this way this one sacrifices itself often to other one, with proved global villains. An expressive example is like, in many buildings, one of the doors of a […]

The architecture, the science and Charles Jencks The paradigm of the complexity applied in the architecture and his expression in the conceptual binomial geometry and complexity arises during the decade of the 60, contrary to Charles Jencks’s position that places it at the end of the 20th century and beginning of the XXIst. The tour of this binomial starts in […]
