Architecture and Chaos | José Ramón Hernández Correa

I have just read a good phrase of Rem Koolhaas in the blog Cosas de Arquitectos. The holder says: “The architecture for definition is a chaotic adventure”.

Scriptorium | Elías Cueto

One of the more fascinating pieces of furniture of the history is the one that Antonello da Messina paints for San Jerónimo. By means of successive operations of encapsulamiento and as if about a story of Borges it was treating itself, the Renaissance painter locates a space inside other one and this inside one more. The picture frames a wall, […]

Questions about the room | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

The space is the distance between two bodies. The dictionary always so conclusive1. Is here the exact, fenced and seemingly objective definition of the contumacious countless one, container of everything what exists: the space, distance between two bodies. The inoffensive aspect of this geometric precision on the space, actually limits the spatial condition to the constellation of relations between his marginal […]

Assembling | Íñigo García Odiaga

Assembling is for definition the action to join pieces or parts, and implies the that cannot be waived appearance of a meeting.

Glen Gould chair | Elías Cueto

Hypochondriac, suffering from syndrome of asperger, obsessive – compulsive maniac of the work, perfectionist of the sound and of the silence … Glenn Gould‘s eccentricities helped to popularize the works for J. S. Bach’s keyboard so much as his talent and personality. Between his eccentricities, certainly, one finds his chair. The proximity with which the Canadian pianist was placing on […]

Also the mirrors take care of […]

Baixo Miño cross-border strengths interpretation Center | rodríguez + pintos arquitectos

The Santa Cruz castle is a defensive structure of “modest” character that, nevertheless, registers as a singular element in the extraordinary context of forts, watchtowers and “fachos” or you camphorate that were raised in the XVIIth and XVIIIth century along the márgenes of the river Miño.
