It can be said that they represent two schools of reflection on the architecture almost opposite. And nevertheless both were determinant at the moment of giving a step beyond the modernity. Eisenman is essentially syntactic, looks in the root of conceptual for the […]

Atlas de Teoría(s) de la Arquitectura

Atlas of Theory(s) of Architecture is a visual sample of different ways of seeing the art of building. It is an exhibition in the plural, since there is no single way of conceiving what architecture is, how it is done and how it should be understood. Architecture, like any discipline, develops its theory in words; but, together, it is capable […]

The transgressions of the Aubette | Marcelo Gardinetti

In 1928, Theo van Doesburg formulated the most transgressive and consistent review on neoplasticism. The design for the interior rooms of Café Aubette exposes the patterns of elementarism, a representation that progresses the neoplastic idea to a spirited dynamic against the orthodoxy of horizontal and vertical dualism. This decision of Van Doesburg produced a confrontation between the most prolific members […]

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 […]

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 trade of the signs | Marcelo Gardinetti

In to say of Immanuel Kant, the architecture makes concrete as an art of the forms, a knowledge before conceived of an object that though it must answer to a usefulness, since artistic fact is not governed by a certain end and therefore, his form does not have his beginning in the nature but in an arbitrary end.
