We […]

New tools proyectuales of reference: Productive Landscapes | axonometrica

Introduction Productive landscapes. The idea of landscape has opened a gap in the considerations and the traditional beginning of the body to discipline of the architecture and the urbanism.

The vision and the reading of the field after the battle, removes reflections, and of form more convulsed that programmed, it activates new hopes.

Demonstrate for a new clinical reason in the architecture | Miquel Lacasta

Demonstrate for a new clinical reason in the architecture.1  We are installed in a time disgregado, opened to multiple interpretations of the reality.

We live in an antiarchitectural world. […]

Islands, desert, mountain. Degree zero architecture | Josep Lluís Mateo

The fascination caused by distant places, in the limit of human existence, places where it might be better to spend than to stay, or where to stay always go along with a vague sense of threat (condition, from romanticism, at the base of the aesthetic experience). The island as a closed, finite place, with endemism as a possibility. The island […]

Of the Brilliancy and of the Time | Miquel Lacasta Codorniu

We walk in in a mess times, what doubt it fits. The confusion, as a sticky molass, wraps us and deprives us of the necessary time to observe how despliega the reality.
