Mad Architects: Mies versus Farnsworth

With this cartoon, Mad Architects: Mies versus Farnsworth, it begins and probably it finishes a series that enough time ago I began but that did not see the light till now. There did not happen the critical, lucid, humorous and ironic rasero that characterizes me (if I do not say it to myself …) and unless some magazine, web etc, pays me […]

Canva‘s idea arose when Melanie Perkins was giving lessons of programs of graphical design in the university and realized that the students had difficulties to learn the basic thing. Together with Cliff Obrecht, co-founder of Canva, Melanie created Fusion Books, a tool of design on line that was helping students and teachers to create his own yearbooks. Rapidly they noticed […]

SW Architect’s version. Your father

For if you are not sufficiently freaks as to recognize this dialog, it is based like not, in Star wars‘ mythical scene: Probably it must have finished the emblem with a NOOOOO of the scholar and be thrown to the emptiness looking for work (a suicide, nowadays), but far from it and motivated by the incessant petitions of the fans […]

SW Architect’s version: Public competitive examinations

Lengthways and width of the professional life, every architect who boasts and even those who are despised like to me, they have run up with civil servants or visadores that with our zeal to obtain a license, turn into supposed benefactors of the law and in malechores of the profession. But I suppose that under all that, before they were […]

Of the (architectural) ellipses | Pedro Hernández

In 1996, Bernard Tschumi writes ‘Violence of Architecture’ –a chapter of the book Architecture and disjunction– in the one that he presents to the architecture as an element in constant tension: between the body that occupies the space and the geometry that it contains to the body. Tschumi’s dilemma does that the architect should decide if he inclines of one […]

SW Architect’s version: Changes of web

After a lot of time, I return to the load with this most interesting and most enterteining comical strip that will do the delights of all those that as me, for lack of work, we decide that the most important thing is to have a posh web, of phantones gray and confirm in black and white with the illusion that […]

SW Architect’s version: Looking for employed at the Java de Hot´s office

(Look at the text in perspective of a point of escape) After leaving the office of Lex, the scholar continues in his incessant search of work to the price that is. After an insane reflection, the scholar discovers that he has not a curriculum the sufficiently wide thing in order that they look at it, not at least to the […]

SW Architect’s version: Looking for jobs

Equal it gives me for two or three emblems, who knows, it is so difficult to find work in this galaxy as in any different, for what you do not reject that it returns crawling to Lex’s office.

Maps in white | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

In 1876 it was publishing for the first time “The Hunting of the Snark“, Lewis Carroll‘s poem with Henry Holyday‘s illustrations. Between a series of drawings loaded with ink, there appears as a revelation the chart “Ocean Chart”, a luck of map that includes the obligatory orientations or the scale, but without visible information in his interior: without vestiges of […]

SW Architect’s version: Fellowship contracts

It was observing that if Scholar changes the B for a simple Pr of the word, it happens to be said Precariously. Thing not beyond of the reality and I suppose that Scholar must be a derivation of the word Precariously, since almost it means the same thing. “YESSS, I ended the career, already I am an architect!” “No scholar […]

Xavier Campos · architecture, cómic and critique | Lexcursó

The graphical humor is an art generally associated with the press in which there abounds the satire of the political and / or social current importance. Therefore we can consider it to be a part of a dialog, of an interaction with the reality in the one that it is born. This frequently distorsionador mirror is the assignment or the vocation that […]

As an architect, and “adopted” Bruxellois for two years, I will try to tell you from my point of view, and through my “arquicomics” what this city is like. To this end, I propose to start this “presentation” of Brussels by its most characteristic element: the “maison bruxelloise”, a house typology apparently simple but which has consequences for the urban […]

This monograph – the third one on the architect after two consecutive numbers in 1987 (AV 9 and 10) – is published to the thread of the exhibition that the MoMA dedicated to the […]

Le Corbusier. Ideas and Forms

It is impossible to understand the architecture of the 20th century and of our epoch without approaching first to Le Corbusier (1887-1965). We can find his buildings in places as remote as Paris, La Plata or the Panyab and his influence it has been left to feel all over the world along several generations. Phaidon takes pleasure in presenting Le Corbusier: […]

We have all heard of Brussels and, however, we do not have a clear picture of this city: halfway between the capital of the European institutions and the base of operations for sightseeing tours (Bruges, Ghent, Antwerp …) Brussels has far more to offer for those who live there and have the opportunity to get to know it every day.

Jose Antonio Coderch de Sentmenat, catalan aristocrat, captain Scott de la España of postwar period. Probably it was late, or too soon. Maybe in another place it would have obtained a major recognition, but in the current Catalonia it has been relegated to the garret of the inconvinient forbears. His first sketch of the house Ugalde costs more than five […]

Portraits across the eyes of a near-sighted person (IX) | epR

Don Alejandro was giving hares whom he was asking for cats. Jack, the architect, constructed classrooms that were floating on a gymnasium, emptied the front of a civil government, suspended glassy viewing-points on a street dressed in stone. Sota, the draftsman, scribbled buildings and faces with fragile, scanty, agonizing lines. Sota, the teacher, Galician and teimado, declined to tread on […]

Sverre Fehn’s notebooks | Borja López Cotelo

These clear mornings of June they disguised the city of Oslo. Closing the eyes, allowing that the Sun should warm the skin, one could believe that he was in Palermo, in Smyrna, probably enclosedly in Cadiz or Tangier. But at the end of the street there was a green foyer that we had to cross every day: the discreet Nasjonalmuseet […]

The dodo bird. Fehn and his drawings of line. Fragile, synthetic and cryptic. Drawings that are almost at all. Exiguous outlines in which it fits the entire world. Cosmogonophy of horizons and ships, of the Suns and lunas, always of men. Fehn and his architecture of elongated shades. The young person northern prodigy of Brussels, Venice and Hamar. Then, the […]
