In the above mentioned text we us were walking along almost all the 20th century up to coming an eighties and it is […]

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 […]

Changing the education to change the city (I) | Stepienybarno

With the present article we initiate one small trilogy revising that we understand, from Stepienybarno, that they are some keys inside the world of the education and the buildings educations, and that, in turn, can turn out to be determinants at the moment of having healthier and inhabitable cities. For it, we will drift apart the sufficient thing, in the time […]

Breviary of Ronchamp

“And if to dedicate (sacrare) was the term that was designating the exit of the things of the sphere of the human right, to profane was meaning to return, inversely, the things to the free use of the people.” Giorgio Agamben, Elogio della profanazione. Corbusier returns to the free use of the common one the work of Him in Ronchamp: such […]

Chernikhov’s fantastic universe | Marcelo Gardinetti

“The architectural fantasy stimulates the activity of the architect. It wakes the creative thought up, but not only for the artist. Also it educates and stimulates all those that enter in touch with him; it produces new directions, new missions, and opens new horizons.” Yakov Georgievich Chernikhov, 1927 Yakov Georgievich Chernikhov’s work Chernikhov is characterized by his permanent investigation on the architectural form.

Architecture of the mirage. Tests on the media city and the end of the public thing

It is this dedicated book. Dedicated in the sense. In the sense of the search of a logic. To investigate a logic to a mirage can consist of finding merely optical effects caused by unusual positions of air masses of different temperature, which combine the light that comes from the objects with that one other one that is refracted of […]

The noble savage. A Contemporary Architect’s Status | Josep Lluís Mateo

“Gardez-vous de la pureté, c’est le vitriol de l’âme…” Paul Valéry A Contemporary Architect’s Status. The imaginary of the profession of architect has historically seen the emergence of various paradigms. One, not too distant, is that of the globalised cosmopolitan genius, defending globalisation and, to use its own terms, the generic, and constantly proposing new horizons, which he finds in […]

The monumental emptiness by Nikola Dobrović | Jelena Prokopljević

En la primavera de 2014, se cumplieron quince años desde los ataques aéreos de la OTAN sobre Belgrado y de la destrucción parcial de lo que muchos arquitectos coincidirían en calificar como uno de los mejores ejemplos del modernismo socialista yugoslavo: El Cuartel General del Ejército Yugoslavo –Generalštab-, obra del arquitecto Nikola Dobrović (1897-1967). Fue construido entre 1956 y 1963 según […]

Architecture and ecosystem logic | Miquel Lacasta

We might think that the mimetic model of the architecture with the nature does not have today any force or that it is not pertinent to think the architecture. We might say that the scientific advances and all his formulations have scanty links with the occupation of an architect and that far from occupying a central space in the reflection […]

The eclecticism in the Spanish modern architecture. Years 20-30 and 50-60 | Antón Capitel

It can be said, without too many exaggeration, that any architecture is eclectic, and can be added also that so often reside in this condition the most important bases of his own quality. But has to be admitted equally that there are occasions, and periods, in that the above mentioned eclecticism is in the foundation itself of the architectural products […]

The red Vienna | Óscar Tenreiro Degwitz

I have insisted very much on this space on what it can be looked in the Power if it has come near to him after a personal process in which a vision of a more just world, a perspective that we might call humanitarian associated ideal politicians and a philosophical “figure” of the reality, has taken place. It is this […]

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 […]

Institutional drawings | Marcelo Gardinetti

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 Him, I […]

Carving | Íñigo García Odiaga

When in 1923 Sigfried Giedion delivered his speech opposite to the students of design during the week of opening of the Bauhaus, his principal message was of “listening to the material and to uncover the secret life of the amorphous thing”. Uncovering the art caught in the matter it is not necessary to excavate but deal, for that deal is […]

Contemporary | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

The Argentine poet was wondering on his contemporary ones, establishing conditions and manners of coexistence beyond a time and an epoch: those who are my contemporary? It was said. The awake enormous question interest, even more in the current moment, a displaced and speculative present in which the label “contemporary” appears as faithful accompanist of the most sweetened felonies: I […]

Edvard Ravnikar’s local filter | Jelena Prokopljević

Edvard Ravnikar (1907 Novo Mesto – 1993 Ljubljana) is considered, after Plečnik, though only in the temporary scale, the most important architect of Slovenia. Ljubljana is of Ravnikar, so much or more than of Plečnik, though not always it is recognized. Together with Edo Mihevc he was the founder of the new school of architecture of the socialist Slovenia or Yugoslavian […]

Inhabitants of the drawing | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

The drawing supposes probably the most valuable tool to see, not only to look, architecture. The cinematographic record of the eye, our vision in movement, our time, conceals often essential aspects from everything what surrounds us, folds of the visible thing only evident under certain conditions of attention and belonging to the place.1 The pleasure of drawing a face, a city […]
