In defense of time | Jorge Meijide

Islands, desert, mountain. Degree zero architecture | Josep Lluís Mateo

The fascination caused by distant places, in the limit of human existence, places where it might be better to spend than to stay, or where to stay always go along with a vague sense of threat (condition, from romanticism, at the base of the aesthetic experience).

Probably this one was our major success. The contest was raising the construction of a small nautical club between the beaches of Petis and Pescadoira, in the environment of […]

In the plastic materialization the emptiness plays as an act […]
