Family Architecture | Halldóra Arnardóttir – Javier Sánchez Merina

A quick reading of the PROFESSIONAL ACTION DEONTOLOGICAL RULES OF ARCHITECTS – and I say fast because all our obligations are summarized in less than fifteen short pages – does not mention a word about whether an architect has to question the field of architecture. When, finally, we find an article, the 24th, which refers to our commitment to society, […]

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 advance helter-skelter between infinite clouds of information banalizada and by excess and exuberance, are unable to detect the limits, the solapamientos, the densities and the specific weights of the real. We live in an antiarchitectural world. […]

Lina Bo Bardi: tupí or not tupí. Brasil, 1946-1992

This exhibition is the first to be held in Spain on the fascinating figure of Lina Bo Bardi (Rome, 1914 – São Paulo, 1992).

Spazialismo | Miquel Lacasta

I do not remember the year, but yes that I remember that it was a winter. I opened a suspicious book of the library of the university, very well supplied of nooks and wrong books, and thought the image that it illustrates this post, Concetto Spaziale Attese, 1968. In these times it was walking obsessed with Barragán, not specially at […]

Alvar Aalto 1898-1976. Organic architecture, art and design

Alvar Aalto (1898-1976) was the most important Finnish architect of his generation and a leading exponent of modernism viewed from a humanistic perspective. His buildings, such as the Paimio Tuberculosis Sanatorium, the Viipuri (Viborg) Library and the Villa Mairea, all situated in Finland, embody a masterful, organic interplay of volume, materials and light. Aalto’s laminated plywood chairs made him one […]

Essay on Decline · Luis Úrculo

Albert Speer, the architect that Hitler placed in charge of most of the important building projects of the Third Reich, habitually made drawings of the future ruins of his own buildings. Speer claimed, with reason, that the real potential of architecture resides in the evocative force of its future ruin or destruction. And in order to justify this argument, he […]

Manifest of expression of beginning [agrupación espacio] | Fernando Freire Forga

El hombre es un ser de su tiempo. Nace y vive dentro de los márgenes determinados de un proceso histórico. Pertenece a una etapa con vivencias y experimentaciones propias, concretas y específicas.
