Fights, criticizes, emigrates | Borja Lopez Cotelo

The crisis has ended. The politicians smile again in the newspapers and the means ensalzan a country that could support the composure for five years of impious tempest. They have turned the pats in the back. But maybe the miracle has happened before my door, once again, without stopping: the clients do not crowd in my study and nobody in […]

The emergency of the resistance | Miquel Lacasta Codorniu

The emergency of the resistance Already he was writing Ignasi of Solà-mulberry trees in 1993, which before the structural violence of the current world, which in the shape of subtle network one has installed implacably in the reality, only three types of attitudes fit: the submission, the delinquency and the resistance.1 Today more that it is never necessary to take […]

Spontaneous architecture | Íñigo García Odiaga

The values of the autoconstructed cities. The economy of the globalization, with the current crisis between his modals, drags without concessions to the contemporary company towards a major imbalance between classes; maybe forgotten in west but not much less in the emergent countries. This imbalance accentuates the borders between the city of the urbanism and what we might name the […]

The dilemma of Spain

Spain faces, in the next years, a historical crossroads. On the one hand, one presents a seemingly easy way, that of the statism and the populism, the Hispanic route to the underdevelopment followed by Venezuela and for Argentina, for which Spain always has met touched. For other one, there is a path that demands important short-term changes, but that can […]

The origins of the architecture (IV) | epR

Often I ask myself when it was begun to speak about energy efficiency. Or, better, when this argument transformed in mere demagoguery and in absolute value capable of justifying mediocre projects. Turning the pages of books of Bernard Rudofsky or Myron Goldfinger we recognize another type of energy efficiency – but also economic and social – capable of forming humanized […]

The origins of the architecture (III) | epR

We find them in the most unexpected place: on having doubled the corner, in the square of the neighborhood, or in this piece of open land that we believed stranger for the rest of the world. They are the author’s architectures, ostentatious offerings to the eternity of major architects who resist as obscene recollections of last times. Today they lie, […]

The origins of the architecture (II) | epR

A fissure exists between the architect and the company. It is not exactly an abyss, is not a deep pit, but there is something that separates it from those for whom, in last instance, he conceives his projects. There is not a question himself to quarrel the one who has reason but of assuming that a problem of communication exists […]

How much does architect gain? | Stepienybarno

That the architects we are lined is something that the whole world knows; but not a few, all! Without exception. They have been years of great profit for the architecture and for his executors, that is to say, we the architects; so, now, we cannot complain about anything! These words will be neither the first one nor the last time […]

The origins of the architecture (I) | epR

The architecture is, by his own nature, a discipline mediated. On the contrary that a painter or a poet, the architect sees how his idea takes form through numerous intermediaries. It is part of this thick skin discipline that it does of the architecture a slow paquidermo in front of the eclosión of new avant-gardes, but that at the same […]

Architects for s. XXI (II) | epR

We believed difficultly that the things were deteriorating, but we were wrong. The global crisis there has joined in Spain a new legal frame that, sooner or later, will turn the architect into an insignificant figure to do architecture. We still have the consolation of thinking that Chesterton would have found this paradox hilarious, or of remembering Steinberg’s words when […]

For the reason of the Architecture | Jose Ramon Hernández Correa

I believe that today, more that, it is never necessary to recover the title of that series of sixteen articles that Frank Lloyd Wright wrote from March, 1908 until December, 1928 in the magazine The Architectural Record: “In The Cause of Architecture”. With them the Architecture speaks about his form of dealing, but, over it, does a declaration of love […]
