La Gran Vía de Madrid. Breve biografía crítica de una gran calle (VI) | Antón Capitel

El edificio Madrid-París ocupa con especial atractivo una posición intermedia del tramo segundo y horizontal de la Gran Vía, en la acera Sur, o de los números pares. La singularidad del edificio procede sobre todo de haber sido primero un edificio más bajo (de 7 alturas más unos torreones en las esquinas) y de haber sido, más adelante, prácticamente duplicado, […]

The Gran Vía of Madrid. Brief critical biography of a great street (V) | Antón Capitel

The third section, descendant, as if referring to the most hurried new times, was made as we said from the thirties to the fifties; that is, leaving the terrible civil war behind. The Gran Vía, unfinished, contemplated and suffered the bombings of the Franco military from the Casa de Campo, and those of German aircraft, and the Telefonica building, still […]

The Gran Vía of Madrid. Brief critical biography of a great street (IV) | Antón Capitel

At the end of the second section and beginning of the third there was a high-interest spatial and formal episode, the Plaza del Callao, which can also be considered as a “fourth act” of the total “theater” that Gran Vía supposes. Or if you prefer, and because of its uniqueness, a theater of your own. An intense and independent scene, […]

Sierra House | Steyn Studio

As the name alludes, this house adopted its nickname from its distinct roof profile. ‘Sierra’ meaning both ‘saw’ and ‘mountain range’ in Spanish. A fortunate coincidence as the house is located between Madrid’s north-westerly neighbourhoods of Mirasierra (look at mountain) and Montecarmelo (Mount Carmel). The shape of the roof is a result of internal spatial requirements. Due to height restrictions, […]

The Gran Vía of Madrid. Brief critical biography of a great street (III) | Antón Capitel

El segundo tramo (o segundo “acto” del “teatro”), de la red de San Luis a la Plaza del Callao, contaba con una notable ventaja, la condición horizontal y recta, lo que hizo que su imagen urbana sea la mejor, y en la que puede imponerse más el propio espacio urbano vacío como tal, sin que sea demasiado necesaria la relativa […]

The Gran Vía of Madrid. Brief critical biography of a great street (II) | Antón Capitel

El primer tramo de la Gran Vía, que asciende –dando con ello una cierta sensación de fatiga, como si se rememorara la dificultad que se tuvo para iniciarla-, comienza con el gran edificio singular que fue el de la Unión y El Fénix (Alcalá 39, arqtos. Jules y Raymond Fevrier, 1905-10, hoy “Metrópolis” y anterior, en realidad, a la avenida), […]

The Gran Vía of Madrid. Brief critical biography of a great street (I) | Antón Capitel

Madrid nació en el oeste de lo que hoy es el casco antiguo, justamente en el lugar del palacio, en el mismo borde de la cresta militar sobre el río Manzanares. Y se extendió hacia unos terrenos de accidentada topografía, lo que provocó desde el principio su irregularidad planimétrica, agravada también por la complicada configuración del trazado de los caminos y […]
