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 […]

Contemporary and avant-garde culture, countervanguardia and perhaps underground culture, pop culture and some types of subculture as well as any anti-mainstream movement are likely to advance the evolution of aesthetic (if still existing) and thought issues and their own definition It implies this subversive positioning. It is difficult to clearly state what a thing is and what is not; when […]

Towards a minor architecture

“A minor architect is a minor destructive character, handyman and hacker, journalist and editor, alter ego and subordinate. Who is skilled at fixing, can also sabotage, and knows how to dismantle as well as assemble”. Jill Stoner, Towards a minor architecture. Architecture can no longer be limited to the art of making buildings, it must also invent the policy of undoing […]

What does architect contribute to the current company? How does he communicate with the company? | Jorge Meijide

The response is clear: we contribute the signature that supports our professional capacity. But before let’s define a couple of terms, architect and architecture. First we, architect, of the Latin architectus, that derives in turn from the Greek architekton, composed for archi, principally or chief and tekton, works. The architect is so the chief or master builder. According to the […]

María Martínez Moreno · MatMap, building materials looking for a new life

Given the need (and moral obligation) to direct the architecture to the highest standards of sustainability (read here from the set that includes the economy, society and ecology) arise new projects such as MatMap.

n+1. Compulsive trends. José María Echarte

Sometimes the architects we have believed ourselves so much the paper of unattainable and heroic genius – that someone designed for us – that we have finished for forgetting that child, that girl, who was painting houses of chalk in the soil. That was asking always why. These texts, compulsive, indignant, serious and enterteining, writings from a deep love for […]

The noble savage. A Contemporary Architect’s Status | Josep Lluís Mateo

“Gardez-vous de la pureté, c’est le vitriol de l’âme…” Paul Valéry A Contemporary Architect’s Status. The imaginary of the profession of architect has historically seen the emergence of various paradigms. One, not too distant, is that of the globalised cosmopolitan genius, defending globalisation and, to use its own terms, the generic, and constantly proposing new horizons, which he finds in […]

The liquid architect | Stepienybarno

Every time it is clearer that with only the competitions of the “classic architect”, in the times that run, we cannot come very far. This way, to learn of marketing or Digital Identity turns into fundamental skills to increase our labor possibilities. To it it is necessary to add a third attitude that many are called the liquid talent. From […]

Mad Architects: Mies versus Farnsworth

With this cartoon, Mad Architects: Mies versus Farnsworth, it begins and probably it finishes a series that enough time ago I began but that did not see the light till now. There did not happen the critical, lucid, humorous and ironic rasero that characterizes me (if I do not say it to myself …) and unless some magazine, web etc, pays me […]

For if you are not sufficiently freaks as to recognize this dialog, it is based like not, in Star wars‘ mythical scene: Probably it must have finished the emblem with a NOOOOO of the scholar and be thrown to the emptiness looking for work (a suicide, nowadays), but far from it and motivated by the incessant petitions of the fans […]

Consumers and consumers | José Ramón Hernández Correa

Now that us falls the politics, which us falls the ideology, which falls the culture, the faith, the structure … quite, the only certainty that we still have is that we live in a company of consumption and that the consumerism continues being the king of everything. We do not realize, but we, that already we are not (or scarcely […]

Do we organize well the studies of architecture? | Stepienybarno

Son ya muchos años los que se lleva poniendo encima de la mesa que los estudios de arquitectura funcionamos de aquella manera y nuestras bases empresariales son cuando menos dudosas. A ello, hay que añadir que muchas oficinas están acostumbradas a malas prácticas laborales o directamente a infringir la ley o estar en el límite de la misma. Sobre todo […]

SW Architect’s version: Public competitive examinations

Lengthways and width of the professional life, every architect who boasts and even those who are despised like to me, they have run up with civil servants or visadores that with our zeal to obtain a license, turn into supposed benefactors of the law and in malechores of the profession. But I suppose that under all that, before they were […]

SW Architect’s version: Looking for employed at the Java de Hot´s office

(Look at the text in perspective of a point of escape) After leaving the office of Lex, the scholar continues in his incessant search of work to the price that is. After an insane reflection, the scholar discovers that he has not a curriculum the sufficiently wide thing in order that they look at it, not at least to the […]

Again the education | Óscar Tenreiro Degwitz

Jesús Tenreiro (1936-2007), dijo una vez en mi presencia (y si mal no recuerdo en la del colega profesor Américo Faillace) que una de las cosas que más importaba en la docencia de nuestra disciplina era crear un ambiente donde la preocupación por la arquitectura, su presencia en ejemplos concretos, el debate sobre ella y sobre muchos otros aspectos de […]

Carlos Moreno · Employment and formation for architects | arquiparados

Year 2013, Carlos Moreno finishes his studies of architecture in the ETSA Seville and as everything newly licentiate appears the following question: “Already I am an architect, and now what do I do?”. Probably for some the response is obvious inside the existing spectrum, to continue studying, “scholarship”, contract?, autonomous, specializing itself, retrainning, emigrating and few ones more the one […]

SW Architect’s version: Fellowship contracts

It was observing that if Scholar changes the B for a simple Pr of the word, it happens to be said Precariously. Thing not beyond of the reality and I suppose that Scholar must be a derivation of the word Precariously, since almost it means the same thing. “YESSS, I ended the career, already I am an architect!” “No scholar […]

Xavier Campos · architecture, cómic and critique | Lexcursó

The graphical humor is an art generally associated with the press in which there abounds the satire of the political and / or social current importance. Therefore we can consider it to be a part of a dialog, of an interaction with the reality in the one that it is born. This frequently distorsionador mirror is the assignment or the vocation that […]
