The transgressions of the Aubette | Marcelo Gardinetti

5.0 01 In 1928, Theo van Doesburg formulated the most transgressive and consistent review on neoplasticism. The design for the interior rooms of Café Aubette exposes the patterns of elementarism, a representation that progresses the neoplastic idea to a spirited dynamic against the orthodoxy of horizontal and vertical dualism. This decision of Van Doesburg produced a confrontation between the most […]

The blue of the sky | Marcelo Gardinetti

4.5 02 “I believe that when the architecture appears the aim to be able to be trasmitida, of being able to interpret the situations of the reality and places inside the historical rational process, it is in conditions to have progressive character”. Aldo Rossi1 From the 60s, Aldo Rossi‘s texts express a way of seeing the architecture that contradicts the […]

Institutional drawings | Marcelo Gardinetti

5.0 02 In the postwar period, during the first revisionism of the modern movement, some schools of architecture coincided in approaching the abstract analysis of the architecture, affirming that the actors fundacionales assimilated in his development the pictorial operations expressed by the cubism. One of the propellents of this thought was Bernhard Hoesli who, after Corbusier left the study of […]

The kitchen of the Oíza´s grandmother | La choricera de Segovia

5.0 01 Years ago I listened to Sáenz de Oíza to speak against the excessively functional design, and it put a very convincing example. He spoke that the functional kitchen of the Bauhaus had all the necessary elements foreseen exhaustively, up to the last detail, and all this perfectly modulated and optimized. It was a marvel that in the twenties, […]

Otra charla de Oíza: Mies vs Aalto | arquitectamoslocos

5.0 02 “This text has the honor of having being qualified by a tuitera as “the worst article of architecture of the whole history”, which has an undeniable merit”. I am nostalgic with my years of school and with Oíza‘s chats. I am going to take again the machine of the time to evoke another his chat. Between November, four, […]

Of the (architectural) ellipses | Pedro Hernández

0.0 00 In 1996, Bernard Tschumi writes ‘Violence of Architecture’ –a chapter of the book Architecture and disjunction– in the one that he presents to the architecture as an element in constant tension: between the body that occupies the space and the geometry that it contains to the body. Tschumi’s dilemma does that the architect should decide if he inclines […]

Influences in Aldo Rossi’s drawing: killing the father | Borja López Cotelo

5.0 01 Often the time dilutes the certainty. Aldo Rossi emerged in the second half of the 20th century as the man called to illuminate a generation in the shade of the modernity. Precocious iconoclast in his revisionist offer of the contemporary urbanism, many they were thinking about seeing in his theory the way to continuing in the definition of […]

Communicating the architecture (I) | Íñigo García Odiaga

5.0 01 Le Corbusier was saying that it preferred drawing to speaking. It is more rapid and leaves less space for the lie. As the architects, also the own discipline prefers expressing in the drawing, in the image, to demonstrate his raison d’être. The architecture, maybe for his need to express and make concrete a still imaginary future, his better […]

The functionality, the comfort, the mode and the language of the architects | Antón Capitel

0.0 00 Is functionality the same thing that comfort? Not gentleman, they can be perfectly opposite. In the stage through that we live one takes the comfort, and not so much the functionality, and this way this one sacrifices itself often to other one, with proved global villains. An expressive example is like, in many buildings, one of the doors […]

External interiors [I] | Íñigo García Odiaga

5.0 01 This text is the first part of a comparison between two houses that to the eyes of the western mentality have at the same time something of incomprehensibly and something of attractive crux. Two houses constructed with a difference of thirty years that solve a similar typology, which we might name of “one-family urban”, both in cities of […]

From the isothermal box to the sustainable organism… | Rodrigo Almonacid

5.0 01 In 1993, the prestigious architect and critical Finn Juhani Pallasmaa, was formulating an idea of refoundation of the Architecture on the basis of a return to the origins of the discipline, appealing to the ecology as companion of trip of the future architects: “I cannot imagine another desirable perspective in the future that a form of ecological life, […]

Tomb and Monument | Íñigo García Odiaga

0.0 00 Was saying Adolf Loos, that only there is a small part of the architecture that belongs to the art: the funeral monument and the commemorative monument. Everything else, that one that serves for an end, that one that has a concrete functionality, to live, to work, leisure, had to remain excluded from the kingdom of the art. The […]
