Wayco Ruzafa | Jose Costa Arquitecto

Si en algo se diferencia de manera radical nuestro tiempo de todas las épocas anteriores, es el modo de relacionarnos y comunicarnos. El desarrollo digital ha transformado todos los procesos interactivos hasta establecerse éste como un “espacio” virtual; espacio, por cumplir, en gran medida, los preceptos de lo que ello implica.

Refurbishment of a small attached house | Mendaro Arquitectos

Workspace, exhibition space (and hidden dwelling). The premise was to carry out the refurbishment of a row house built in the 20s, classified as “recognized poverty housing”. There was a limited budget and the place’s character had to be kept in the outside. It has a front and a back garden. The idea was to set up an artist residency […]

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 […]

Formats | Íñigo García Odiaga

Often one thinks that the formatos only give response to the dimensions of the sheets, the linens or the frames, establishing relations between his different dimensions. Thus the dimensions of the paper are organized to industrial level, being based on the number v2 to establish all the relations between the parts and everything. The format is understood therefore as an […]

Dis-cover | Sergio de Miguel

Since seekers of effective surprises our creative capacity can remain reduced by the existence of too many caps of information. Impeded by a dense coverage of unconscious hypotheses, inherited concepts and not expressed ideas. Only we manage to liberate ourselves in an effective way when, from the practice of a lateral thought, we are capable of preventing the preconceived valuations, […]

Unfulfilled promises and dark transparencies | José Ramón Hernández Correa

A few weeks ago a nice anonymous reader left a comment at an entry “The modern concept of architectural space”. The comment was so brief that I copy complete: “very interesting! And the continuation?” What continuation? I did not have conscience of which there had to be no continuation. I reread that old woman entered (of December, seven of two […]

The modern concept of architectural space | José Ramón Hernández Correa

There is Giulio Carlo Argan´s book hat titles The concept of architectural space from the Baroque to our days, of the sixties and today descatalogado (as so many people and so many fundamental books), that seems to me to be the most interesting.

After the threshold | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

A cemetery is a raft of time, a hollow in the world that fills and empties with us. The metaphor of our lives like rivers “that are going to give to the sea”1 would transform this emptiness into a vast figurative ocean into whose abysmal depths it rests the history of the Being: the time like one to pass progressively, […]

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 […]

Objet trouvé [03] : Jørn Utzon and Elineberg’s towers – landscapes | Rodrigo Almonacid

In Elineberg, Jørn Utzon had occasion to open an organic architecture solved with admirable simplicity and without resorting to formulae of residential buildings in height already known. The idea of repetition, inherent in a block of multiple floors (since the case is this), is finely altered by the Danish architect to give him a fullly human sense linked with the […]

Moved to the educational architecture, we would like to believe that a good school (from an architectural point of view) propitiates a better education.

“Why hang things on a wall when the own wall constitutes a half so stimulating? It is the rigid mentality that establishes that the architects install the walls and the artists decorate them, what more offends my sense of both professions.” (Gordon Matta-Clark) A good part of the works minimalistas produced from finals of the years sixty of the past […]
