Portraits across the eyes of a near-sighted person (IV) | epR

Franky the Kid Frank grew in a farm of Wisconsin. It was before working with L. H. Sullivan in Chicago. Maybe the city seemed to the farmer to be too artificial and decided then to dismember the architecture, to preface the housings in extraodinary projecting beyond his walls and to dilute them in the nature. It was called them Prairie […]

Otras puertas | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

The door that Alicia finds in the burrow of the rabbit is, actually, a window. In spite of his appearance of door, his minuscule size turns her into only a crack practised in the wall from where being able to look at the most wonderful garden of the world1, this fascinating place that one hides after the walls and to […]

He gives shape to things to come | Jorge Gorostiza

Enough months ago I published in this blog an advertisement of Kodak in the one that was speaking himself on the architect and the cinema. Now I have found other one, this time on the art director and his cinematographic work, in a number of the magazine International Projectionist of the year 1950. The text is the following one: “He […]

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 […]

Portraits across the eyes of a near-sighted person (III) | epR

The night bird Many Alvar Aalto’s things have been said. That was racionalist, that was organicista, that fought for the independence of Finland in 1917. That he liked the wine, the night and the young women. Maybe they all are true. It would explain Viipuri, Paimio, the Mairea, Otaniemi, Säynätsalo, his circles and his two marriages. Always I remember that […]

Portraits across the eyes of a near-sighted person (II) | epR

The migratory architect He was the man of the short phrases. Less it is more, God is in the details. Prussian, straight, tenacious. His houses of brick and his German Pavilion were not sufficient to save it from the beast that was devastating Germany. It was not also enough to him to emigrate with his itinerant Bauhaus of Weimar to […]

Aristide Antonas | Pedro Hernández

Though Aristide Antonas (@antonas) has web, of this own of an architect, that they gather his writings, his projects and similar; and though this one due published, so much in paper as for Internet; I have to say that I did not know it for these means, but across his Flickr’s account, a long before the same web was in my […]

Le Corbusier. An atlas of modern landscapes

Le Corbusier, a key figure of the architecture of the 20th century, was pioneering in the studies of improvement of the housings of the lowest classes and proposed new forms of efficient architecture in very populated cities. Le Corbusier was, in turn, a multidisciplinary artist, with a work that spreads also to the painting and the photography, joining art and […]

The Eames and Billy Wilder | Jorge Gorostiza

I believe that it is not necessary to say those who were Billy Wilder, either Ray and Charles Eames (always it is in the habit of putting to Chat first probably for being a man). What probably is known less is the friendship that joined them for many years. According to Tom Wood in his book The Bright Side of […]

Portraits across the eyes of a near-sighted person (I) | epR

The raven man. A good day, Charles-Edouard Jeanneret-Gris decided that, in forward, would be called Le Corbusier. It decided also that already it would not be Swiss but French, and turned into raven – ¿or was it a magpie?-. It glided weightlessly between the writing, the painting and the architecture, settled in the gleaming shoulders of his cousin Pierre, of […]

The origins of the architecture (IV) | epR

Often I ask myself when it was begun to speak about energy efficiency. Or, better, when this argument transformed in mere demagoguery and in absolute value capable of justifying mediocre projects. Turning the pages of books of Bernard Rudofsky or Myron Goldfinger we recognize another type of energy efficiency – but also economic and social – capable of forming humanized […]

Cartoons · Alejandro de la Sota

Without the exquisite work and Alejandro de la Sota’s discreet teaching, undoubtedly one of the fundamental props of the Spanish architecture of the second half of the 20th century, the definitive revenue of this one to the modernity had taken place otherwise, probably less essential and polished. Not so known it is the interest that the teacher cultivated all his […]

The origins of the architecture (III) | epR

We find them in the most unexpected place: on having doubled the corner, in the square of the neighborhood, or in this piece of open land that we believed stranger for the rest of the world. They are the author’s architectures, ostentatious offerings to the eternity of major architects who resist as obscene recollections of last times. Today they lie, […]

Fairbanks House | Jorge Gorostiza

In a number of the magazine Photoplay of the year 1928 I have found these drawings of the project of a house for Douglas Fairbanks, a project that was not created by an architect, but for a singular professional: William Cameron Menzies, since it is known, the first one ” production designer ” of the history of the cinema thanks to […]

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 […]
