The architect hinders | José Ramón Hernández Correa

I have a new entry in the blog outlined, and already it was going with her when this morning Fernando Sánchez Dragó has slipped past (sigh, this man!) and it has instructed me to write urgently different this one. He has spoken in National Radio, and has annotated a book that, for what he has said, seems to be very interesting:  La Historia […]

VAD 02. Call for Papers. The prototypes

Si en el primer número de VAD. veredes, arquitectura y divulgación se descansaba la mirada en “los inicios”, en aquellos comienzos y principios que proporcionan de manera tangible o simbólica lo que desea existir, ahora se quiere explorar con amplitud los parámetros pertenecientes a los orígenes. Ese surgir, nacer y aparecer, donde germina la arquitectura. “La naturaleza será cambiada por […]

The car house | Íñigo García Odiaga

Between 1934 and 1935 Mies van der Rohe developed the study of patio houses. Houses that are reduced to a minimum domestic program, which are isolated from the city, without a concrete context beyond their own inhabitant, a hypothetical Mies.1 But among all these houses there is a unique proposal, the so-called Patio House “with garage”. The orthogonality of the […]

The attributes of La Tourette | Marcelo Gardinetti

Two design circumstances were decisive to establish the character that typifies the architecture of the Convent of La Tourette. The first is embodied by defining the horizontal plane governing the highest point of the terrain, so that, from that horizontal, the building descends copying the irregular topography of the slope. The second is to mutate the concept of traditional cloister […]

VAD 01. Call for Papers. The begins

LOS INICIOS. Del latín initium, inicio es un término que la propia RAE define con un sinónimo, comienzo, que a su vez se revela como “principio, origen o raíz de algo”. Por tanto, un inicio puede enfocarse desde dos puntos vista: desde lo tangible, relacionado con la existencia de un orden o de una serie de elementos estructurados según unos […]

La grapa de ABC | Alberto Ruiz

José entró a la cocina con el ejemplar de ABC debajo del brazo. Se sentó en su butaca preferida, junto a la ventana mientras Trini le ponía un café. En tazón grande, con la leche muy caliente, como lo tomaba desde que era un crío. Abrió el periódico. Le encantaba el olor de la tinta y, sobre todo, que el […]

Utopía/Nutopia | Miquel Lacasta

The 60s were the age of the megastructures, the age of the Utopian dreams, the age of the revolts against the established. In turn they were the epoch of the construction of the imaginary common one. The age of a politicallly active, almost arrogant optimism; At the beginning of the 70, probably for pure law of the pendulum, it came […]

What does not fit in time | Luis Gil

The historical horizon that we have had to inhabit makes all Western citizens of today belong without exception to the established society of consumption and excess. A syndrome that advanced and denounced from its beginnings, in the middle of the XX century, different thinkers and sociologists. Since then, capitalism has flooded our lives with superfluous behavior and unnecessary objects. From […]

Does anyone know what criticism is? | José Ramón Hernández Correa

Lately, based on reading blogs and websites, I am reading more about architecture than in many years. I am almost returning to the reading level I had when I was a student. Between that era of the school of architecture and the current one there is a turbid (and lucrative) stage of successful professional who bought expensive magazines to see […]

Autoorganization and Cybernetics | Miquel Lacasta

Lately the notion of self-organization has taken a certain protagonism in the conception of the city and the architecture, probably to political / social current recomic singer of the situation. In a sense it can sound to chimera the fact that so much, objects as persons, have a trend towards an organization not programmed in advance. It is more, I […]

Something that I do not want to be | José Ramón Hernández Correa

In this blog I spread myself often against what I consider intolerable excesses of the architecture of flash, and criticize her without reservations (and I believe that deservedly). The own title of my blog, ¿Arquitectamos locos?, already I it have counted several times, it is necessary to to the indignation that I sit (or that was feeling, in full epoch […]

Public space as a battlefield | Javier Mozas

Public space was for Hannah Arendt, 1906-1975, a place for Action.1 Arendt believed that democracy needed to be exercised in the public realm, that it was useless to enact it in the private space of the household. Action has two very different resources: one peaceful, the other violent. One using Words and the other Battle; that is, Discourse and War. […]

In the first work of Formal Eisenman The Formal Basis of Modern Architecture, his doctoral thesis, begins as there began Jacobs in The Rise and Fall of Great American Cities, or Venturi in Complexity and Contradiction in Architecture, with a critique to the Modern Movement. It can be said that the alternative pressure of the decade of the 60, they need of any […]

The hand that moves the crane | Javier Mozas

In the early years of the 20th Century, Henry Ford spoke of the rationality of the production process and justified the extreme proximity of his machines in the production plant -greater than that of any other company in the world-, for an unnecessary separation of only six inches would end up passing on extra costs to the consumers. Fordism fattened […]

Superstudio, the radical antiUtopia | Miquel Lacasta

Superstudio‘s work was stimulated by different intentions. Superstudio describes his own work in terms of ‘radical architecture’, ‘anti-Utopia’, ‘negative Utopia’, or ‘of guerrilla warfare’. He is, especially, Cristiano Toraldo di Francia, co-founder of the group together with Natalini, which were employed at this theoretical base. He understood the radical architecture of the decade of the 60 and beginning of the […]

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 […]

Architecture of the mirage. Tests on the media city and the end of the public thing

It is this dedicated book. Dedicated in the sense. In the sense of the search of a logic. To investigate a logic to a mirage can consist of finding merely optical effects caused by unusual positions of air masses of different temperature, which combine the light that comes from the objects with that one other one that is refracted of […]

Populism (III) Portela dixit | Óscar Tenreiro Degwitz

The Mission Housing is a program with so many omissions and improvisations as the enormous investments that it has demanded. It was conceived and he manages the affairs privately, between political and professional relatives subject to confidentiality, and progresses with the economic, juridical and professional irrationality that has done to itself characteristic of the Venezuelan petroestado. There do not exist […]

Populism (II) | Óscar Tenreiro Degwitz

When I was studying architecture we had a Cuban teacher called Ricardo Porro Hudalgo (1925-2014), who should construct in the pro-Castro Cuba a few years later one of few works of worthy architecture of mention in the half century of Cuban revolution, a school of art with vaults of brick that has been very praised. Lazy, Marxist militant in this […]

Critique of Shock

Plunged and position to the service of the absolutism of the spectacle, the exercise of the critique of architecture ranges today, complaisent, between the nostalgia and the farce. Against this passiveness, it is necessary to recover the critique as tool of shock. The critique like state of alert from WHICH to promote the doubt, to question myths and to generate […]

Populism (I) | Óscar Tenreiro Degwitz

Vengo ocupándome desde hace cierto tiempo del tema del populismo. Otras veces lo he tocado, aclarando que no me refiero sólo al populismo político1 sino al populismo en general. A los arquitectos el tema nos concierne porque si hay algo que daña la visión general que se tiene de la arquitectura es el populismo. Esto no parece tan a la mano […]
