Otra vez el star system | Óscar Tenreiro Degwitz

En los tiempos de la primera modernidad se dio forma a un marco ético que tuvo mucha influencia como moderador del natural deseo de construir de todo arquitecto. Hoy los principales rasgos de ese compromiso ético se ocultan tras los guiños filosóficos postmodernos y esa suerte de indiferencia a todo orden moral que los acompaña. El arquitecto estrella de hoy, […]

Cloud of smoke | José Ramón Hernández Correa

The prestigious study of architecture MVRDV has presented his project The Cloud, that went  to build in Seoul, Korea, in 2015. And I say “it went ” because the thing has twisted  of the silliest way. It has not been the crisis, neither any technical problem, but the public opinion, the one who seems to be that it goes to […]

In a new pragmatism | Miquel Lacasta

In the acquaintance I free The craftman, Richard Sennett  pleads for a return to an attitude, the craftsman’s attitude, which seeks in every moment to do the things well. This generalismo, opened and diffuse at first, remains perfectly outlined along four hundred pages of the book up to constituting an authentic allegation towards a return to the culture of the material […]

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 […]

VAD 02 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 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.

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 […]
