The origins of the architecture (II) | epR

A fissure exists between the architect and the company. It is not exactly an abyss, is not a deep pit, but there is something that separates it from those for whom, in last instance, he conceives his projects. There is not a question himself to quarrel the one who has reason but of assuming that a problem of communication exists […]

The origins of the architecture (I) | epR

The architecture is, by his own nature, a discipline mediated. On the contrary that a painter or a poet, the architect sees how his idea takes form through numerous intermediaries. It is part of this thick skin discipline that it does of the architecture a slow paquidermo in front of the eclosión of new avant-gardes, but that at the same […]

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. He was enjoying this interest, which it was cultivating from his infancy. Always he confessed that it was not any more than it, a mere interest, which did not have any artistic pretension with those […]

Architects for s. XXI (IV) | epR

They are bad times to live of the architecture. The days happen without the telephone sounds, without Herbert Johnson entrusts us a few offices or the father Couturier insists on contracting to construct a chapel us in The Vosges. Because of it now it is the moment to affirm, as the haughty laborer of Madariaga, that in my hunger I […]

Architect of castles | Jorge Gorostiza

In a copy of 1949 of the Journal of the British Kinematograph Society magazine I have found the advertisement of Kodak that I attach here to the side. His text is curious and says the following thing: “From the plane to the model, from the model to the structure to royal, like that size there grows this “castle of dream”, […]

Architects for s. XXI (III) | epR

It turns out to be curious to think about the architects as a species on the verge of extinction, but maybe this idea is not very far from the reality. At least in a country where the laws, the fierce competition and (digámoslo high place, it is therapeutic) the absence of ethics of a wide sector of the profession when […]

Oblique Drawing. A History of Anti-perspective

It is easy that many of that read these lines associate the concept of perspective with the reading that of her Erwin Panofsky did in the mythical one The perspective as symbolic form. For years, the studies of visual representation have been dominated by Panofsky’s interpretations. It is not a bad sign that Massimo Scolari rescues in Oblique Drawing a […]

Architects for s. XXI (II) | epR

We believed difficultly that the things were deteriorating, but we were wrong. The global crisis there has joined in Spain a new legal frame that, sooner or later, will turn the architect into an insignificant figure to do architecture. We still have the consolation of thinking that Chesterton would have found this paradox hilarious, or of remembering Steinberg’s words when […]

Still I remember when to study architecture he was assuring a future you. Or it they believed all: your parents were looking at you with approval and your friends were saying to you that, from then, you would pay the beers. Now, after a structural crisis and a change of law in the horizon, to study architecture seems to have […]

Everything it has a beginning | Jorge Meijide

Everything it has a beginning The architecture endures to live and to live endures, inexcusably, the inhabitant. Without this one we can speak about sculpture, about certain artistic facilities or about formal games, all of them of indisputable value propositivo, but difficultly we can speak about architecture in his more wide and extensive expression. This one to live carries a […]

‘While there is death there is hope’, was affirming Fabrizio Corbera, the terse prince of Lampedusa’s novel. Nevertheless the cemeteries, these cities of the dead men, reproduce the same excesses and desigualdades that his analogous cities of alive: some have to be piled up or to share an exiguous piece of land in order that to his side the big […]

Some time ago that to travel stopped being an experience to turn into a business. The tourism is a part of a system that turns a culture into product, a country into brand. And, certainly, the laws of the market demand that everything is comfortable and immediate. Nevertheless, the ruins, as the cities, are neither restaurants of snack food nor […]

The city (II) | epR

Everything has changed before we were realizing. Obsessed for satisfying needs that even it makes small they did not exist, we happen the days jumping obstacles that we themselves have placed in the way; we entrust ourselves to the artifice while we see how the recollection of the world disfigures itself that some day was. Sometimes I think that maybe […]

I forgot to wonder […]

Constant, the Utopia receives life | Miquel Lacasta Codorniu

Constant, the Utopia receives life In the Utopian landscape of the sixties, where there resound names like Kurokawa, Fuller, Friedman, Archigram, Utopie or Archizoom, Constant’s project stands out for his ideological rigor. The technological Utopias of Archigram or Buckminster Fuller do not differ for social concepts of base in his offers. For these architects it is, especially, the fascination for […]
