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”. The phrase completes I do not copy it in order that this way you do a visit to these boys, who deserve it, (Frasecica). To do architecture is to coordinate aspects that at first are not […]

Conrad and Venezuela | Óscar Tenreiro Degwitz

A few weeks ago I wrote on the Arq. Martín Vegas Pacheco, who was my teacher. I referred then to the time in which I did of his teacher assistant in the “Workshop Fertile plaines” of the Faculty (It was traversing then 1962-63) together with other colleagues that my memory makes me difficult to enumerate. The certain thing is that […]

Thousand and one House | Joaquín Juberías – Paula Aranda

Exercise on a person and his masks. To be left to seduce for the interests – both public and unmentionable – of the client, it you discovers more on his housing that any programmatical already established approximation. It is not said not newly at all, in the faculty already they were teaching us on it: the one who has not […]

After the threshold | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

A cemetery is a raft of time, a hollow in the world that fills and empties with us. The metaphor of our lives like rivers “that are going to give to the sea”1 would transform this emptiness into a vast figurative ocean into whose abysmal depths it rests the history of the Being: the time like one to pass progressively, […]

Of the complex thing. Ambiguity, Difference, Time | Miquel Lacasta

Of the complex thing. Ambiguity, Difference, Time. Speaking about the complex thing is inabarcable. It would come to be like to trace the mythical cartographic map to scale 1:1 to that Borges was referring in the story Of The Rigor of the Science.1 The task, would need such a precise description, that the described object and the description itself would […]

Later, as when it is done well revealed or a cheese, the text is placed carefully in a booth and after a time it is extracted to submit it to the attempt of seeing […]

Instruments of measure of the time (II) | Jorge Rodríguez

‘We are our memory, are this fantastic museum of inconstant forms, this heap of torn mirrors.’ JL Borges Probably living is any more than an eternal construction than recollections. We pledge in anticipating the melancholy that us will bring the memory, projecting our past future. Probably because of it, when Enric Miralles did his small Kolonihavehus, a little house of […]

Hens in Seseña (I) | José Ramón Hernández Correa

It is difficult to me to write very much this entry, because, though I was in the first row and I did not get lost detail, I did not stop understanding everything what happened. It has been difficult to me years to understand that the whole secret was consisting of the fact that there was nothing to understand; that the […]

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 Club of the Lost Paradise | Borja López Cotelo

Dei Greci was walking slow along the street. It was Thursday, and in the calm atmosphere of these last hours of the day, Venice was looking like another city. I crossed the bridge, got lost for the multicolored Riva degli Schiavoni and sat down in the edge of a channel to seeing to spend the life, allowing that my legs […]

The parable of the Englishman | Borja López Cotelo

I remember my brief stay in the St. James College, in Maypole Green, Essex. In the evenings of rain, to chop of the drops against the sill was sounding as the second-hand of a clock that seemed to go increasingly slowly, while a green and gray landscape was filtering across the ogival window. I, often, was losing the time searching […]

Instruments of measure of the time (I) | Jorge Rodríguez

Always the doubts have assaulted me, I hesitate when the moment to choose approaches. But it is something that has never worried me. The doubt, the uncertainty is common. Far from denoting sluggishness or weakness, I see it as the indicative one of reflection, of pause and silence before the action. Come to this point, do I want to remember […]

I want to finish this one series of articles that are grouped under the umbrella of my parenthesis by this image. This one I portray of ends of the 19th century, a print of the most common thing, a mother adormilada, throwing a siesta. That of today, it is a very special text.

It is necessary to read Borges | Jorge Rodríguez

It is necessary to read Borges1 Roberto Bolaño was writing in his novel 2666 on the cowardice of the reader on having faced the big classic ones. He was saying: “they want to see the big teachers in meetings of fencing of training, but they do not want to know anything of the combats indeed, where the big teachers fight […]

Between Ford and Lewerentz | Jorge Meijide

 [1] between ford and lewerentz I confess an impenitent movie fan in his more strict definition[2], though also I can say the same of the architecture. I am also an impenitent architect. Chronologically speaking the cinema it came before so, since to the first love, I guard a special place and, as the architecture, it has made me happy and […]
