The Club of the Lost Paradise | Borja López Cotelo

Dei Greci was walking slow along the street. It was Thursday, and in the calm atmosphere of these last hours of the day, Venice was looking like another city.

One day of 1958 | Borja López Cotelo

The Sun was shining in the sky of Brussels burning the visitors of Heysel’s esplanade. Sverre and Reima were drinking, to small sips, an African coffee. Reima breathed depth, thought a few seconds, and said: -As it is learned to imagine by major and major concentration you stop being able to work with objects or prefabricated schemes … The really […]

Drawing the nature | Michael Ángel Díaz Camacho

Of many infamies that the architects we promote often, the fact of drawing the nature constitutes, probably, the most beautiful. In our planes there turn out to be represented somehow trees and plants, rivers and seas, oceans devoid of the sky blue one of the maps.

The parable of the Englishman | Borja López Cotelo

I remember my brief stay in the St. James College, in Maypole Green, Essex. In the evenings of rain, to chop of the drops against the sill was sounding as the second-hand of a clock that seemed to go increasingly slowly, while a green and gray landscape was filtering across the ogival window. I, often, was losing the time searching […]

Influences in Aldo Rossi’s drawing: killing the father | Borja López Cotelo

Often the time dilutes the certainty. Aldo Rossi emerged in the second half of the 20th century as the man called to illuminate a generation in the shade of the modernity. Precocious iconoclast in his revisionist offer of the contemporary urbanism, many they were thinking about seeing in his theory the way to continuing in the definition of a new […]

I study on the architectural work of Oscar Niemeyer from the point of view of the analysis of the graphical expression.

The book is structured in four chapters, […]

Objet trouvé [01]: Arne Jacobsen and the columns of the Olimpeión of Athens | Rodrigo Almonacid

Arne Jacobsen was a great draftsman and even better watercolorist. When he was enjoying a few vacations always his pencils and paintbrushes were accompanying him.

His experiments to harmonize the new forms of the International style with new materials, as the concrete one, the crystal and the steel, or his luminous conception of buildings as the factory Fagus; the organization of the Bauhaus and the […]
