The dibrujo | Sergio de Miguel

“In hands of the architect, the la’piz constitutes a bridge between the mind that he imagines and the image that appears in the leaf of paper; in the ecstasy of the work, the draftsman forgets both his hand and the pencil and the image emerges as if it was an automatic projection of the mind that he imagines; or probably […]

The drawn city | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

The city constitutes an inexhaustible source of information on us. His arrested observation reveals landscapes in continuous transformation, landscapes in movement: transitory landscapes. The drawing as cognitive instrument of the urban decanting, acts from one of the most former tools that are known: the perspective, the point of view from which the matter, a point is considered or analyzes anyone […]

The blue of the sky | Marcelo Gardinetti

“I believe that when the architecture appears the aim to be able to be trasmitida, of being able to interpret the situations of the reality and places inside the historical rational process, it is in conditions to have progressive character”. Aldo Rossi1 From the 60s, Aldo Rossi‘s texts express a way of seeing the architecture that contradicts the unidirectional criterion […]

Chernikhov’s fantastic universe | Marcelo Gardinetti

“The architectural fantasy stimulates the activity of the architect. It wakes the creative thought up, but not only for the artist. Also it educates and stimulates all those that enter in touch with him; it produces new directions, new missions, and opens new horizons.” Yakov Georgievich Chernikhov, 1927 Yakov Georgievich Chernikhov’s work Chernikhov is characterized by his permanent investigation on the architectural form.

Inhabitants of the drawing | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

The drawing supposes probably the most valuable tool to see, not only to look, architecture. The cinematographic record of the eye, our vision in movement, our time, conceals often essential aspects from everything what surrounds us, folds of the visible thing only evident under certain conditions of attention and belonging to the place.1 The pleasure of drawing a face, a city […]

The section of the World | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

The idea of hoarding the universal history of the architecture, the sculpture and the painting, amazes and pulls down to equal parts. If the chamber of the exchequers forms a part besides a domestic program, we are before a seductora entelequia of to live: the life like permanent dip in the culture; the collection like the representation itself of his […]

A X-ray photography | Sergio de Miguel

It falls in my hands an elaborated drawing of Juhani Pallasmaa. On the plant of the villa Mairea (1939), of Alvar Aalto, superimpose  some lines of order. Ones trace. It appears a X-ray. The one who has been described like “the most beautiful plant of the world”1 shows  undressed of his secret. The geometric score of his harmonic figure remains […]

Charles Ventrillon | Óscar Tenreiro Degwitz

Fifty years ago we had a teacher in the Faculty of Architecture that it was teaching to draw. His education nothing had to see with tricks or formulae but with foundations, with what it precedes the act itself of drawing, it might be said. He was saying to us for example that it was important to observe in general, which […]

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 […]

Façades (im)portants | Sergio de Miguel

The architecture has discurrido from his origins with the paradoja of the duality between the closing and the structure portante. Of a similar way to which find in the classical physics with the light and the disquisition wave-particle. During centuries both elements have been the same thing, that is to say, together have conformed the walls of the buildings without […]

Flat and parallel | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

In occasions the man lives strange territories, inhospitable as a frozen desert, hostile as the chill wind of the glaciers. For some strange reason, we have belonged to these places and have adapted to his nature from the coat, the culture or the management of the ecosystems. The architecture means to understand in the first instance the environmental consequences of […]

A Finn in El Escorial (I) | José Ramón Hernández Correa

I have known the ludicrous history of Alvar Aalto‘s trip to Madrid, thanks to Eduardo Delgado Orusco and (once again) to Juan Daniel Fullaondo. I will interpret it very freely, to my way. Do not wait for a great historical loyalty. Or yes. Maybe this delirious story is absolutely true. Maybe it has returned what the exquisite education of the narrators had […]

Arranged some behind others, Sverre Fehn’s drawings shape an alphabet of signs, a procession of glifos that relate concepts constructing a fable. They do not content with illuminating an idea, pledge in transporting us to a time and to a space where the objects and the represented men enter action. Sus croquis se encuentran en el ámbito de transición milenario […]

There does not exist for the architects a condition of major excitation that that one who promotes the anteroom of the trip: the best text to learn architecture is the own architecture. As addicts submitted to a powerful influence, we read and document carefully those places and spaces that us wait in a real exercise of (re)discovery. Nevertheless, the trip […]

A house in Finland. The fantasy and the memory | Borja Lopez Cotelo

I began to walk between the coniferous ones. His geometric trunks were leaking the beams of the pale Sun. They were last days of May and on the lake Päijänne there were floating still some chunks of ice, lazy in these last weeks of winter lethargy. It was walking slowly, being afraid to meet suddenly the housing that Alvar Aalto […]

The spirit of the hens | José Ramón Hernández Correa

In the first course of architecture of the ETSAM, which for me was of 1977-78, there was a subject (for damned me) that was called “Analysis of Forms”, and whose professor was Javier Seguí. (Another professor of the subject – I believe that it came a little later, but I it do not remember good – she was Helena Iglesias, who […]

Interview with me itself | Borja Lopez Cotelo

I opened the eyes in that room of yellow color. Around me, hundreds of books and notebooks were resting on furniture spread by the chaotic stay. Poe, Melville, Tolstoi or Maupassant were accumulated in unusual balance. The soil was replete with wrinkled sheets of paper, victims undoubtedly with some access of ire. I was lying on one of this beautifully […]

These clear mornings of June they disguised the city of Oslo. Closing the eyes, allowing that the Sun should warm the skin, one could believe that he was in Palermo, in Smyrna, probably enclosedly in Cadiz or Tangier. But at the end of the street there was a green foyer that we had to cross every day: the discreet Nasjonalmuseet […]

Henri Matisse. Cut-outs. Drawing With Scissors

The revolutionary late-period work by Matisse. Towards the end of his monumental career as a painter, sculptor, and lithographer, an elderly, sickly Matisse was unable to stand and use a paintbrush for a longer period of time. In this late phase of his life—he was almost 80 years of age—he developed the technique of ‘carving into color’, creating bright, bold […]

Molezún’s motorcycle | José Ramón Hernández Correa

I have been in the exhibition about “Photography and modern architecture in Spain, 1925-1965” of the ICO Foundation inde Madrid and have felt a heap of opposing sensations. (It is that I am a writer, and the writers we say it of ” opposing sensations “, and more things). Several confused ideas: viejuna that is remaining the modern architecture, it […]
