Buenas intenciones | bRijUNi

A vueltas como estamos siempre bombardeados con rankings y parametrizaciones de dónde se vive mejor y en función de qué, el debate en nuestros país vuela de Madrid a Barcelona, pasa por Zaragoza, Valencia o Bilbao, alcanza Sevilla o directamente estalla en una liga más vertical en la que juegan nuestros pueblos contra las capitales de provincias con la manida […]

El poder de Lo—TEK. Un estudio global de las innovaciones arquitectónicas indígenas

Hace trescientos años, los intelectuales de la Ilustración europea construyeron una mitología de la tecnología. Esta mitología, influida por una mezcla de humanismo, colonialismo y racismo, ignoró la sabiduría local y las innovaciones indígenas, que consideró primitivas. Ahora, nos hemos dado cuenta de que el legado de esta mitología sigue influyendo en nosotros. Pese a que los diseñadores son conscientes de la necesidad urgente […]

La lógica del desmontaje | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

Toda obra de arquitectura resulta en principio un ente encapsulado, un todo inalterable que recibimos en herencia para su estudio o habitación en el mejor de los casos: obras maestras nos decían, obras que pertenecen a su tiempo, como aquellos insectos primitivos primorosamente conservados en ámbar a la espera de ser descubiertos por algún estudioso en la materia. Sin embargo, […]

Ex novo | bRijUNi

La máquina ha de ser alimentada, el progreso es imparable. No importe adonde miremos, la irrefrenable codicia colonizadora envía sus máquinas, ya sea a un gran secarral aquí al lado o a Guinea para ocuparse del espacio vacío, sea éste de interés social, turístico, económico u otra cosa. Sólo importa que la voraz alimaña no se detenga. Oscuras profecías cinematográficas […]

Los procesos Re- como expiación | Javier Mozas

En la conferencia que pronuncia Rem Koolhaas en Harvard el 3 de abril de 2009 bajo el título Sustainability: advancement versus apocalypse,1 mostró en las primeras imágenes, una pintura de Caspar David Friedrich, 1774-1840, […]

Projecting with nature | Guido Cimadomo

Every time I find more interest in immersing myself in nature than in visiting the latest examples of author architecture. On a recent trip to Australia, a European architect marveled that he had not planned to visit the Sydney Opera House. Despite the distances of the Australian continent, seemed scandalized in my interest for nature, for the forests of the […]
