This Italian term could be defined as the relation that the different parts of the body establish when initiating the movement. The weight of the body rests mainly on one leg, so that the corresponding hip rises with respect to the […]

Domestic Strangers (I): The Extraordinary Houses by Kiyoto Ota | Pedro Hernández

Upon entering the Chopo University Museum appear three small houses. We say houses because we recognize them as such: wooden volumes with sloping roofs of a picturesque appearance, typical of the drawings of what for a child could be a house. Its conception, however, is completely outside the canons of architecture: its size is scarce, its interior space almost minimal […]

Rain of light | Íñigo García Odiaga

Curiously, the most intense memory left in our memory by the Roman Pantheon is that of an absence, the point where matter disappears to lighten the concrete membrane of its dome, where it is more slender. In that zenith, the oculus with its nine meters in diameter, opens the interior space to the sky, allowing the air and also the […]

The architecture in front of the death of the art | José Ramón Hernández Correa

The artistic forefronts always have looked at the architecture of an ambiguous way. On one hand, the artists (painters, sculptors, photographers, poets, musicians …) they have had always the label hung of chisgarabises, and have sought with zeal to put in his troupe some architect, who seemed to give him venerability to the group or movement that was. (An architect […]

The end of the first world war in 1918, gave step to a prosperous period of political changes and social revolutions.

Universal history of the Turpitude [I] | José Ramón Hernández Correa

I believe that there is no doubt (and I write “believe”) in celebrating Frank Lloyd Wright, Le Corbusier and Mies van der Rohe as three more big architects of the 20th century. There are dozens of brilliant architects, and hundreds of extraordinary architects, but I believe that these three are another thing. At least in my opinion. I have mentioned […]

Carving | Íñigo García Odiaga

Uncovering the art caught in the matter it is not necessary to excavate but deal, for that deal is […]

The section of the World | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

The idea of hoarding the universal history of the architecture, the sculpture and the painting, amazes and pulls down to equal parts. If the chamber of the exchequers forms a part besides a domestic program, we are before a seductora entelequia of to live: the life like permanent dip in the culture; the collection like the representation itself of his […]

Thinking, to propose, to decide the architecture depends on many variables. And very tiny, the strategy chosen to carry out a project is in yes a project. An intention. It turns out to be so immediate as common to recognize the world of the previous information as a compendium of elements that added give like proved the terms of reference […]

Spatial construction | Íñigo García Odiaga

If it was trying to summarize in a word which is the last end of the architecture, from an academic point of view, the agreement would be impossible, but no doubt, one of the words with major consensus would be the term space. The space, the construction of an interior isolated of the environment, can be understood as the first […]

As burnt blight is an agilización of the creative process by Christian García Bello (A Coruña, 1986) towards the rotundity contained of the gesture, and towards the severity extreme of a character in concrete and certainly radical evasion. This evasion is a loyalty towards one itself, finding of the temporary thing that tends and stratifies towards the top thing; and it is […]
