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 roads of water | Íñigo García Odiaga

The territories are generally sculpted by water. Its absence or abundance determines the appearance of the landscape in which the architectures are inserted, which are nothing more than a small obstacle in the slow flow of water along the surface of the earth. Juan Navarro Baldeweg knows it well, and summed up this idea in the installation and in the […]

Dussart Pedrón Winery | Crux Arquitectos

En la línea de tiempo de las edificaciones hay muchas vidas diferentes, y todas marcan de alguna manera a las siguientes. Las mismas construcciones, los mismos paisajes, en momentos diferentes son percibidas de manera diferente; vividas, al fin y al cabo, bajo otras circunstancias. En esas vidas, además de pasar por usos diferentes, transformaciones, abandonos y renacimientos, se pasa por […]

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 […]

Rural architecture | Íñigo García Odiaga

There exists the widespread idea of which the contemporary this architecture tied inevitably to the urban thing and therefore to the density of the great city.

The rules are different, […]

Tim Ingold and the construction of the way

More spatial anthropology, this time of the hand of the indescribable one and always interesting Tim Ingold.

Architecture, geometry and landscape | CREUSeCARRASCO

Proponemos interpretar el significado de la geometría y el paisaje a partir del tradicional debate entre lo sensible y lo racional en arquitectura, haciendo un planteamiento de equilibrio entre definiciones que, en su aparente contradicción, responden a fases de un recorrido cíclico, el que realizamos cuando proyectamos y construimos una obra. La ARQUITECTURA construye un espacio que va a ser […]
