Institutional drawings | Marcelo Gardinetti

In the postwar period, during the first revisionism of the modern movement, some schools of architecture coincided in approaching the abstract analysis of the architecture, affirming that the actors fundacionales assimilated in his development the pictorial operations expressed by the cubism. One of the propellents of this thought was Bernhard Hoesli who, after Corbusier left the study of Him, I […]

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 […]

Drawings of work, of the mental place to the final reality | Luis Gil Pita

What? To explain the happened. In relation to the drawing, as necessary tool for the expression of the project, the contemporary architecture already does not conceive without the inflation of the graphical representation of the plane, an inflation parallel to the bureaucratic growth of the written documentation of the own project, fruit of the obligation of use, the majority of […]

Crowdfunding. Mental drawings. Juan Navarro Baldeweg’s creative universe

“A lo largo de los años he venido elaborando una obra, como arquitecto y, también, como creador de piezas y pintura, en la que se pueden detectar unos motivos recurrentes, unos temas suscitados por el deseo de dar testimonio, a través de ella, de unas dimensiones esenciales que son ingredientes del medio físico que nos envuelve o que son factores […]

The distensiónes of the space in Zaha Hadid | Marcelo Gardinetti

In terms of methodological investigation, the Zaha Hadid’s first works were the most fruitful. In them it explores and re-formulates searches of the forefronts of beginning of 20th century aborted by the political conditions of those years. The genetic root of these works waters in the language suprematista of Kazimir Malévich. The traffic for the work of the Russian artist […]

The landscape codified in Arne Jacobsen’s architecture

To study Arne Jacobsen’s work demands certain patience. His scanty public declarations or written texts demand to be sent to the facts in yes, be perfect these in the shape of building, daily object, architectural project, textile design, drawing, water-color or photography. A minimal distance was separating his study of architecture and his domestic garden, place where it was in […]

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 […]

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 […]

Klaus: Architecture, cómic and critique (II)

Retomamos la charla que comenzamos hace unos días con Klaus, esperamos que disfruten tanto como lo hemos hecho nosotros. De todos modos, al margen de lo humorístico, en muchas de ellas reflexionas sobre diferentes temas, ¿podríamos decir que realizas crítica de arquitectura? Lo malo de la polisemia es que no te deja más opción que contestar a todo que sí. […]

Klaus: architecture, cómic and critique (I)

De acuerdo con su reseña biográfica más habitual, ‘Klaus es un caricaturista frustrado que vive en un viejo castillo y Europa.’ En realidad, tras el pseudónimo Klaus se esconde un arquitecto, urbanista y profesor de Historia de la Arquitectura particularmente interesado en las relaciones entre la arquitectura y los mass media, que lleva desde 2009 siendo el azote del ‘star […]

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 […]

The whole life of photographies enclosed in a shed of wood, a chest he was saying.

Albi’s lasting testimony | Oscar Tenreiro Degwitz

Whenever it saw the drawings of Louis I. Kahn (1901-1974) the great architect Estonian – American, were called me always the attention those of Albi’s Cathedral, with his buttresses planned with ascending spirals. They were indicating all the interest it put Kahn in this building of the 13th century, interest that I see now expressed in words, on me having […]

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 […]

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. In the housing we can […]

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: […]
