Casa Hanselmann de Michael Graves y la reformulación semántica de la arquitectura moderna | Marcelo Gardinetti

En los años 60, la arquitectura de Michael Graves estuvo influida de un modo determinante por las composiciones de la vanguardia de la arquitectura moderna de las décadas de 1920 y 1930, y fundamentalmente por la obra de Le Corbusier. En esos años, Graves no plantea un proceso regresivo al trabajo de las vanguardias; propone una revisión crítica de algunas […]

The solitary dancer | arquitectamoslocos?

Another day my colleague and virtual friend Javier Ibarrola hung on Facebook this magnificent photo: He is the painter Piet Mondrian with his picture Broadway Boogie Woogie. It looked like to me a fascinating photo and I commented on it with entusasmo. (Enthusiasm that still, and it gives me his force to attack this entry). I believe that the photo forms plastically an entire […]

VAD 02 The Prototypes

Si en el primer número de VAD. veredes, arquitectura y divulgación se descansaba la mirada en “los inicios”, en aquellos comienzos y principios que proporcionan de manera tangible o simbólica lo que desea existir, ahora se quiere explorar con amplitud los parámetros pertenecientes a los orígenes. Ese surgir, nacer y aparecer, donde germina la arquitectura. “La naturaleza será cambiada por […]

The purist space | Marcelo Gardinetti

The atelier of the painter Amédée Ozenfant´s house is builted in 1922 embodies a synthesis of the purist space proclaimed by Le Corbusier during those years. This house is the first one in Paris and in it he puts into practice his ideas regarding the architecture of the new times. Ozenfant and Le Corbusier shared a plastic idea narrated between 1918 […]

The distinctive modernity of Norman Foster | Marcelo Gardinetti

Far from the process of ambiguous and controversial representation promoted by the postmodern convulsion that dominated the architectural scene of the early 80s, the work of Norman Foster, aligned with the thought of Richard Rogers and Renzo Piano, was promulgated in favor of a technological update of the modernity. His work ponders the mechanical analogies of the modern movement and […]

The attributes of La Tourette | Marcelo Gardinetti

Two design circumstances were decisive to establish the character that typifies the architecture of the Convent of La Tourette. The first is embodied by defining the horizontal plane governing the highest point of the terrain, so that, from that horizontal, the building descends copying the irregular topography of the slope. The second is to mutate the concept of traditional cloister […]

A universe, a house | Marcelo Gardinetti

How should a house on the mountainside be for a family with a person confined to a wheelchair? The client himself had the answer: “Contrary to what you would expect, I do not want a simple house. I want a complex house because the house will define my world”.1 The land where the house is located is located in the […]

Unstable equilibrium | Íñigo García Odiaga

It is said that the classical Greek sculpture reached its maximum splendor when it began to use the contrapposto. This Italian term could be defined as the relation that the different parts of the body establish when initiating the movement. The weight of the body rests mainly on one leg, so that the corresponding hip rises with respect to the […]

The transgressions of the Aubette | Marcelo Gardinetti

In 1928, Theo van Doesburg formulated the most transgressive and consistent review on neoplasticism. The design for the interior rooms of Café Aubette exposes the patterns of elementarism, a representation that progresses the neoplastic idea to a spirited dynamic against the orthodoxy of horizontal and vertical dualism. This decision of Van Doesburg produced a confrontation between the most prolific members […]

The dissonance and the paradox | Marcelo Gardinetti

“Since the mid-seventies, Stirling has shown his struggle against the boredom produced by the repetition of modern architecture, against its triviality and its inability to situate itself in historical contours. For this he tried to display a work that was narrative and figurative and, at the same time, abstract and technologically advanced”.1 The architectural work of Stirling goes through the […]

Bauhaus, minimalist agreement | Marcelo Gardinetti

The reconstruction of demolished architectural heritage induces, fortunately, interpretations that exceed the representation of the work itself. These definitions erect parallel or antagonistic positions that cause different controversies, which generally increase the idea of patrimonial value. The reconstruction of the houses designed by Walter Gropius for the masters of the Bauhaus affected by war actions during the second war offered […]

Construction time | Íñigo García Odiaga

In 1998 Peter Zumthor concluded the construction of Sogn Benedetg‘s small chapel. The Building was coming to replace the baroque church constructed in the Swiss people of Sumvitg that had been destroyed by an avalanche of snow. The original church knew of the risk to which it was exposed for what one of his buttresses had specialized himself in the […]

Affinity in contrast | Marcelo Gardinetti

“It seems to me that the problem in which we find ourselves today is to rethink our relationship with historical buildings. It is necessary to move from an attitude that is evasive and increasingly distant, typical of protection-conservation, to an attitude of projective intervention. It seems to me that what must be done is to reconsider whether there is not […]

Analogies of total art | Marcelo Gardinetti

“There is an old time consciousness, and there is a new one. The first attends to individualism. The new tends toward the universal”. Manifiesto De Stijl, 1918 The compositional similarities between the pictorial work Tableau I by Piet Mondrian in 1920 and the design of the street elevation of the De Unie café by J.J.P. Oud of 1924, respond to […]

The blue of the sky | Marcelo Gardinetti

“I believe that when the architecture appears the aim to be able to be trasmitida, of being able to interpret the situations of the reality and places inside the historical rational process, it is in conditions to have progressive character”. Aldo Rossi1 From the 60s, Aldo Rossi‘s texts express a way of seeing the architecture that contradicts the unidirectional criterion […]

Sequential | Marcelo Gardinetti

A condition emphasized in Il Redentore’s design is that it reaches the unit of set by means of a skilful disposition of autonomous parts. This quality that demonstrates in the tracing of the plant, in the succession amalgamated of volumes and in the composition stratified of front, answers to the exact balance that Palladio reaches in his maturity proyectual. Every […]

Chernikhov’s fantastic universe | Marcelo Gardinetti

“The architectural fantasy stimulates the activity of the architect. It wakes the creative thought up, but not only for the artist. Also it educates and stimulates all those that enter in touch with him; it produces new directions, new missions, and opens new horizons.” Yakov Georgievich Chernikhov, 1927 Yakov Georgievich Chernikhov’s work Chernikhov is characterized by his permanent investigation on the architectural form.

Institutional drawings | Marcelo Gardinetti

In the postwar period, during the first revisionism of the modern movement, some schools of architecture coincided in approaching the abstract analysis of the architecture, affirming that the actors fundacionales assimilated in his development the pictorial operations expressed by the cubism. One of the propellents of this thought was Bernhard Hoesli who, after Corbusier left the study of Him, I […]

Lebbeus Woods’s alternative world | Marcelo Gardinetti

During his professional life, Lebbeus Woods sketched thoughts. The images that it produced incorporate observations of an improbable future. It moves on suggestive ideas that are not submitted to the rules of the company. On the contrary, it questions them. His representations, inhabitants of an inhospitable territory, personify his singular ontology. Floating structures and mobile constructions that compose a statement […]

The diagram as reflection tactic | Marcelo Gardinetti

I understand diagrams in architecture and graphic elements that describe some undetermined way. They do not represent an object per se, but a strategy that allows order flow relationships in the design process. Therefore, we can say that the thought diagrammatically architecture builds relationships paths abstraction of a representation which is extracted figurative. Greg Lynn said that “the architects produced drawings of buildings and […]

The distensiónes of the space in Zaha Hadid | Marcelo Gardinetti

In terms of methodological investigation, the Zaha Hadid’s first works were the most fruitful. In them it explores and re-formulates searches of the forefronts of beginning of 20th century aborted by the political conditions of those years. The genetic root of these works waters in the language suprematista of Kazimir Malévich. The traffic for the work of the Russian artist […]

Moneo, from the idea of front | Marcelo Gardinetti

Incorporated into a determinant plot of the local identity, Rafael Moneo‘s intervention for the town hall of Murcia achieves his contextual agreement by means of the observance of the protagonism of the buildings that compose the historical heart of the city up to reaching a complementación without fractures. The Moneo´s operation around it is focused in heightening the existing architectures, […]

The analogous statement of Aldo Rossi | Marcelo Gardinetti

In the second half of the 20th century, the architectural search of postwar period strains for reaching an alternative offer of the modernity. You appear as Robert Venturi, Denise Scott Braun, Charles Moore and Robert Stern were promoting, in tuning in with the consumer capitalism, a return to the representation and the symbolism suppressed by the modern movement, not to […]

Zumthor, between the quiet and the seduction | Marcelo Gardinetti

One of Peter Zumthor‘s principal motivations with regard to his own work consists of proposing the immediate understanding of the constructed object, to dive by means of a primary observation the emotional sensibility of his spectators. In search of this aim, Zumthor tries that the combinations of forms, materials, colors and textures, they amalgamate in the perceptive thought, giving place […]

Koolhaas’s intellectual ardor | Marcelo Gardinetti

The distinctive feature of the thought of Rem Koolhaas comes from his conviction to proclaim the polyfunctionality of the architectural fact, a declaration that dogmatizes by means of the distribution of the elements of the program in independent caps but that they assure between yes strategies of reciprocity. This operation is the corollary of a deep analysis of the program […]

Jacobsen, the weighting of the essential thing | Marcelo Gardinetti

The prelude of the second world war limited the architectural productions of the European countries involved in the contest (fundamentally Germany, France and Italy) where, in reason of the most influential impellers of the activity being seated, the modern movement was developing with major obstinacy. In a competing way, there becomes massive the diffusion of works constructed to the north […]

Igalitarian status and illusory limit in SANAA | Marcelo Gardinetti

A distinctive feature of the work of Kazuyo Sejima and Ryue Nishizawa is the valuation extreme of the horizontal space, understanding that he consents the natural movement of the man and facilitates his field of vision of a way that allows to join the architecture with the horizon. This disposition, which takes as a reference the concept of free plant […]
