Monolith in the beach | Carlos Zurdo-Jesús Barrera-Domingo Barrios-Fernando Molina

Monolith in the beach tries to be an attempt for materializing and to live a spatial concept. Without “thickness”, the concepts are sets of lines (that for thin, immaterial, they try to be almost of ink) and planes ” without thickness ” (of paper? …) enclosing a space that only we can imagine. To little that let’s let’s want to […]

As an architect, and “adopted” Bruxellois for two years, I will try to tell you from my point of view, and through my “arquicomics” what this city is like. To this end, I propose to start this “presentation” of Brussels by its most characteristic element: the “maison bruxelloise”, a house typology apparently simple but which has consequences for the urban […]

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

Alvar Aalto already had been in the bulls. In Barcelona they had taken the Monumental one to him, and one had spent it very well. Because of it the persons from Madrid thought that already it did not have very much felt to take him to The Sales. This aim already was covered. Actually the Finn did not seem to […]

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 […]

The excellent cartography of the territory of the intimacy, draws it undoubtedly, the housing, that is to say, the space in which we develop our domestic life, is the only programmatical structure of the architecture, in which we go on from the public and social condition to the private and subjective, closed and intimate condition.

Le Corbusier. Ideas and Forms

It is impossible to understand the architecture of the 20th century and of our epoch without approaching first to Le Corbusier (1887-1965). We can find his buildings in places as remote as Paris, La Plata or the Panyab and his influence it has been left to feel all over the world along several generations. Phaidon takes pleasure in presenting Le Corbusier: […]

We have all heard of Brussels and, however, we do not have a clear picture of this city: halfway between the capital of the European institutions and the base of operations for sightseeing tours (Bruges, Ghent, Antwerp …) Brussels has far more to offer for those who live there and have the opportunity to get to know it every day.

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.

Jose Antonio Coderch de Sentmenat, catalan aristocrat, captain Scott de la España of postwar period. Probably it was late, or too soon. Maybe in another place it would have obtained a major recognition, but in the current Catalonia it has been relegated to the garret of the inconvinient forbears. His first sketch of the house Ugalde costs more than five […]

Don Alejandro was giving hares whom he was asking for cats. Jack, the architect, constructed classrooms that were floating on a gymnasium, emptied the front of a civil government, suspended glassy viewing-points on a street dressed in stone. Sota, the draftsman, scribbled buildings and faces with fragile, scanty, agonizing lines. Sota, the teacher, Galician and teimado, declined to tread on […]

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 […]
