Building bridges between society and architects | Stepienybarno

What is the distance that separates architecture from society? Or rather to the architects of the society we should serve. On this topic we have tried to get into other post and we believe that it is one of the most important keys to solve today. Architecture is something that, in principle, should matter to everyone, because there is no […]

Así que, con vuestro permiso, vamos a intentar analizar unas cuantas claves que quizás nos den pautas para […]

Objet trouvé [08] : When Coderch wanted to portray his house as Caufus Kaufmann | Rodrigo Almonacid

The Kaufmann House (also known as the “Desert House”) is probably the most popular house of Richard Neutra. His nocturnal image is one of the icons of Modern Architecture Photography par excellence, and although it was not the most appropriate to the intentions of the architect1, the magnificent photograph of Julius Shulman (fig.3) will end up equaling in importance (if […]

The eclecticism in the Spanish modern architecture. Years 20-30 and 50-60 | Antón Capitel

It can be said, without too many exaggeration, that any architecture is eclectic, and can be added also that so often reside in this condition the most important bases of his own quality.

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

Jose Antonio Coderch de Sentmenat, catalan aristocrat, captain Scott de la España of postwar period. Probably it was late, or too soon.

“Stop doing ugly buildings” | Aldo G. Facho Dede

A few days ago waiting to realize a step in the offices of Particular Works, I heard accidentally a few persons who were commenting on the condition of the local architecture.

I knew Coderch with this building, it was for finishing the career and an architect friend me “presented” it in a book that I could not have obtained.

Bohigas’s fantasies (or the advertising lies of the Catalans) | Antón Capitel

I believe honestly that Coderch is not the best architect of Spain in the 20th century, if any sense is that this definition made. Of looking for one, the best they would have been Alejandro de la Sota or Francisco Javier Sáenz de Oíza. None of the two was from Madrid, Jack of Pontevedra and Oíza of Navarre, but the […]
