House(s). Looks on the idea of living

Course of the Institut d’Humanitats de Barcelona. What longings and desires does it shelter today the house? It is, as was saying Bachelard, the topography of our intimate being?

From giving form from the pain and the misery | Pedro Hernández

“Paimio is a praise of the civilization filtered through an ideal humanist; but, in spite of this characterization, it cannot conceal that the final destination of all this effort can come down to receiving and trying to encourage a disease.

The window of the desires | Michael Ángel Díaz Camacho

There exists in the Fifth Avenue of New York a window on which the people crowd from the street. In the night and day, sosegadamente, we imagine almost silently. A window seductora and hypnotic as a putting of the Sun or a rain of stars. Nobody might imagine that actually, which is admired by the own emotion of the corsair […]

Without this one we can speak about sculpture, about certain artistic facilities or about formal games, all of them of indisputable value propositivo, but difficultly we can speak about architecture in his more wide and extensive expression. This one to live carries a […]

The ephemeral thing, in the architecture and in the life | Cristina García-Rosales
