Affinity in contrast | Marcelo Gardinetti

“It seems to me that the problem in which we find ourselves today is to rethink our relationship with historical buildings. It is necessary to move from an attitude that is evasive and increasingly distant, typical of protection-conservation, to an attitude of projective intervention. It seems to me that what must be done is to reconsider whether there is not […]

Erased by bombing during the Korean War, North Korea’s trophy capital of Pyongyang was entirely rebuilt from scratch from 1953, in line with the vision of the nation’s founder, Kim Il Sung. Designed as an imposing stage set, it is a place of grand axial boulevards linking gargantuan monuments, lined with stately piles of distinctly Korean flavor, to be “national in […]

The hand that moves the crane | Javier Mozas

In the early years of the 20th Century, Henry Ford spoke of the rationality of the production process and justified the extreme proximity of his machines in the production plant -greater than that of any other company in the world-, for an unnecessary separation of only six inches would end up passing on extra costs to the consumers.

Populism is defeated in the city | Óscar Tenreiro Degwitz

It is true that the urban environment, we said last week, influences the citizen in a way that creates differences between individuals, differences that can separate, exclude, be a factor of unrest and tension.

The intelligence of the desire | Miquel Lacasta

For the important matters, the educations come from very remote places. I think that the architecture is an important matter, and because of it it is suitable to find in places, sometimes distanced from what one thinks, small pearls that help us to give body to our reflections. One of these remote interesting educations comes from the Danish thinker, Søren […]

At all up to Africa | Íñigo García Odiaga

They tell that it liked to exclaim Jørn Utzon “At all up to Africa”, while it was observing the sea from the top of the cliffs where his first house places in Can Lis, Majorca.

Second opportunities | Silvia Blanco Agüeira

In 1961, just two years after the reconstruction of the Pavilion of the Hexagons in Madrid’s Casa de Campo, there was another surprising breakthrough in the Spanish capital: the arrival of the pavilion that the Duchy of Luxembourg had built at the Brussels World Expo of 1958. “Offered in advantageous conditions”,1 they affirmed the chronicles of the time.

In 1957 Paulo Mendes da Rocha designs the chair “Paulistano” for the lounges of the Gymnasium of São Paulo’s Athletic Club. It suits to rescue this brief description in technical which in the design and social commitment they look like two faces of the same currency: “The chair is done by pipe of steel, which is very cheap. It is […]

Looking down | Íñigo García Odiaga

To reject the direct look of the eyes can be a symptom of shame or coyness, this way it is in the habit of being interpreted when someone us lowers the look. But in some cultures like the Japanese it is a symptom of respect. For the architect this gesture can be of submission. Mies lowers the look to get […]

Superstudio, the radical antiUtopia | Miquel Lacasta

Superstudio‘s work was stimulated by different intentions. Superstudio describes his own work in terms of ‘radical architecture’, ‘anti-Utopia’, ‘negative Utopia’, or ‘of guerrilla warfare’. He is, especially, Cristiano Toraldo di Francia, co-founder of the group together with Natalini, which were employed at this theoretical base.

El mito de la Castellana, una utopía contemporánea | Antón Capitel

La Castellana es el gesto urbano más importante de Madrid, un poderosísimo rasgo metropolitano que pocas ciudades tienen. Afortunado fue el momento inicial en que se urbanizó la vaguada del Prado de San Jerónimo y se convirtió en un Paseo (finales del siglo XVIII), y afortunada también la decisión de que, acompañando la cuadrícula del ensanche y siguiendo la vaguada, […]

Standing up | Íñigo García Odiaga

Our culture and language leads us to exposing us often to the risk of coming to superficial conclusions, based precisely on information taken of the epidermis of the things. The rapid and fast consumption of images despises the search of an interior truth. The “good look” is according to the dictionary that one that defines the good aspect or way […]

The ICO Museum of Madrid closed a few days ago a magnificent exhibition that, for some weeks, allowed to bring over the public the figures of Carlos Arniches and Martín Domínguez, two architects who were defining his own work not as racionalist, but as reasonably.1 The reasonable architects did not seem to have content too much in the Spain later to the […]

In these times it was walking obsessed with Barragán, not specially at […]

Out of sight, out of mind… I do not recognize myself, am foreign to me itself. I do not recognize myself because my around it is foreign to me. People do things around me.

A condition emphasized in Il Redentore’s design is that it reaches the unit of set by means of a skilful disposition of autonomous parts. This quality that demonstrates in the tracing of the plant, in the succession amalgamated of volumes and in the composition stratified of front, answers to the exact balance that Palladio reaches in his maturity proyectual. Every […]

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

I finish the trilogy (I, II) that I promised, not because there should no be many any more turpitudes, but because I believe that it costs with one of each one of the three big ones. And I finish off the series with relief, because it is not nice to count so many dirty rags. To Mies van der Rohe […]
