VAD 04. Call for Papers. Los secundarios

Hace ya 20 años que el profesor Carlos Sambricio propuso la idea de la recuperación en el panorama español de lo que nosotros queremos llamar “los secundarios”, aquellos arquitectos que por diferentes motivos no disfrutaron de excesiva fortuna crítica durante su ejercicio profesional pero cuya obra, revisitada a la luz de los años transcurridos, plantea temas de interés a nuestros […]

La construcción del techo | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

Algunos arquitectos han dedicado una gran parte de sus vidas a la construcción del techo. Sin duda Miguel Fisac fue uno de ellos. Entiéndase el techo no como la mera cobertura superior de un edificio, no como la simple superficie horizontal que nos acoge.

La lógica del desmontaje | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

Toda obra de arquitectura resulta en principio un ente encapsulado, un todo inalterable que recibimos en herencia para su estudio o habitación en el mejor de los casos: obras maestras nos decían, obras que pertenecen a su tiempo, como aquellos insectos primitivos primorosamente conservados en ámbar a la espera de ser descubiertos por algún estudioso en la materia. Sin embargo, […]

VAD 03. Call for Papers. El Orden

Se cuenta, puede que más cerca del mito que de la realidad, que cuando Mies van der Rohe entrevistaba a un candidato para formar parte de la plantilla del estudio le sometía a una extraña prueba. Le acompañaba hasta una de las mesas de dibujos, le hacia entrega de instrumental, reglas, compases, escuadra, cartabón, lápices, gomas de borrar, etc., y […]

The plant and the ruin | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

I remember the first time I had an original before my eyes. That pencil-drawn plant contained all the information necessary for the execution of the project: dimensions, levels, finishes, materials, types of walls, ceiling height, program, support, relationship with the immediate environment … More than a plant we could say that it was a map, a latent structure in a […]

Contemporary | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

The Argentine poet was wondering on his contemporary ones, establishing conditions and manners of coexistence beyond a time and an epoch: those who are my contemporary? It was said. The awake enormous question interest, even more in the current moment, a displaced and speculative present in which the label “contemporary” appears as faithful accompanist of the most sweetened felonies: I […]

The space of the mirrors | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

The mirrors work as the pupils of a within the walls space, a room outdoor from that they observe us. In occasions there preserve even some recollections of our lives, as the porous and dusty mirrors of the old houses, which seem to examine from the hats and suits to stripes of ours forbears1. Also the mirrors take care of […]

House(s). Looks on the idea of living

Course of the Institut d’Humanitats de Barcelona. What longings and desires does it shelter today the house? It is, as was saying Bachelard, the topography of our intimate being? How has it changed the range of senses granted socially to the domestic space? And his form and his functions? Home, strength, cover, burrow, nest, lodging. In the course of the […]

The subversion of the fragile thing, to use and to never throw. Notes on the cutlery Stamp byTomás Alonso.

To construct a house: In that penultimate stage of my life it was doing so many people that almost I had been forgotten what it was meaning. It is a magic. Independently of the major or […]
