How much house do we need? Thoreau, Le Corbusier and the sustainable cottage

The space we inhabit, reduced to a minimum, has been a source of fascination and experimentation throughout history. Henry David Thoreau lived in his forest hut in Walden Pond between 1845 and 1847. Le Corbusier built in 1952 for him and his wife the famous Cabanon of the Côte d’Azur. Inspired by these experiences, Urs Peter Flueckiger and his students […]

Los procesos Re- como expiación | Javier Mozas

La Humanidad ha consolidado, a lo largo del tiempo, una morbosa relación de amor y odio con la Naturaleza. Admiración y contemplación, o dominio y sometimiento.

PLACE´TA | Juan Moya arquitectura

Intervention is a reactive architecture faced to the hostility of urban conditions in the site and to the scheduled mechanicism proper of a lifestyle inherited from the 20th Century modernity. An impersonal crossway with high traffic volume is balanced through a biophilic interior for collective meeting. Being today demands the pass towards metamodernity. The presence of a human being that […]

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 traditional approach to the building energy efficient retrofitting brings poor results in relation to the urban sustainability, resource efficiency and economic return. Although the district retrofitting approach is frequently the most sustainable and cost-effective, the complexity of decision making grows exponentially when the intervention targets larger scale, even more when considering the fragmentation of the construction sector.
