Atlas de Teoría(s) de la Arquitectura

Atlas of Theory(s) of Architecture is a visual sample of different ways of seeing the art of building. It is an exhibition in the plural, since there is no single way of conceiving what architecture is, how it is done and how it should be understood. Architecture, like any discipline, develops its theory in words; but, together, it is capable […]

The prelude of the second world war limited the architectural productions of the European countries involved in the contest (fundamentally Germany, France and Italy) where, in reason of the most influential impellers of the activity being seated, the modern movement was developing with major obstinacy. In a competing way, there becomes massive the diffusion of works constructed to the north […]

Alvar Aalto, a modern, classic and contemporary teacher | Antón Capitel

Alvar Aalto (Kuortane, Finland, 1898; Helsinki, 1976) was the great juvenile teacher of the modern architecture, very later to Frank Lloyd Wright, but also to Le Corbusier and to Mies van der Rohe, of similar age between them and intermediate between both first ones. And it might be said this way, without too many exaggeration, that with the works of […]

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

Gunnar Asplund and his nemesis. Fights of roosters Gunnar was the hinge between the chill Swedish classicism and the winds that were blowing of the south. A refined and visionary teacher.

Unclassifiable architectures: the “Goetheanum” (R.Steiner, 1926-28) | Rodrigo Almonacid

Unclassifiable. Indescribable. Inabarcable. Inaprensible.

He signed literally his work. To make it today might to us look like an exercise of self-praise, but I believe that to do it as it was done […]
