La geografía de lo minúsculo | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

La experiencia de la arquitectura se establece desde lo minúsculo. En ocasiones la altura de un peldaño, la anchura de un hueco o el giro de una puerta, determinan un singular catálogo de acciones que por fuerza, o por costumbre, repetimos una y otra vez como habitantes de nuestra propia cotidianidad. Diríamos entonces que la casa se presiente en el […]

Atardecer en el pabellón | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

El ojo transforma la arquitectura en una película sensible, registra la compleja coreografía de reflejos, sombras y vibraciones que parecen alterar su propia materialidad: temblores de luz sobre la penumbra del techo junto al agua; imágenes desenfocadas de nubes y estrellas que transitan sobre suelos de losas brillantes o satinadas; sombras de personas y cosas que se arrastran sobre cubiertas […]

Espacio en el espacio | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

La construcción de la ventana supone un verdadero ejercicio de concentración. El simple hecho de perforar un muro permite tamizar la luz, domesticarla, iluminar como función primera y esencial del hueco.1 En ocasiones la ventana se presenta además como un espacio en sí mismo, un intermedio profundo al que cualificar desde la configuración de sus propios límites, un pabellón instalado […]

Mirar es poseer | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

El espacio y el ojo mantienen una fascinante relación de interclusión. Por un lado el ojo se encuentra sumergido en el espacio, sostenido en una posición flotante que construye nuestra percepción del afuera; al mismo tiempo, el espacio se despliega en la habitación interior del ojo, resolviendo una de las formas más elementales y efímeras de la conquista. Tal vez […]

La construcción del techo | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

Algunos arquitectos han dedicado una gran parte de sus vidas a la construcción del techo. Sin duda Miguel Fisac fue uno de ellos. Entiéndase el techo no como la mera cobertura superior de un edificio, no como la simple superficie horizontal que nos acoge. Basta recuperar sencillas expresiones del lenguaje -tengo que buscarme un techo- para comprobar cómo en ocasiones […]

David García-Asenjo Llana · Difusión de arquitectura

En esta nueva entrega de la sección, y aprovechando el parón, hemos tenido la suerte de charlar con David García-Asenjo Llana, arquitecto por la ETSAM (2002) y doctor en Proyectos Arquitectónicos Avanzados por la UPM (2016), con la tesis “Estrategias de proyecto en la arquitectura sacra contemporánea española” y actualmente profesor asociado en la URJC (entre los años 2009 y […]

La lógica del desmontaje | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

Toda obra de arquitectura resulta en principio un ente encapsulado, un todo inalterable que recibimos en herencia para su estudio o habitación en el mejor de los casos: obras maestras nos decían, obras que pertenecen a su tiempo, como aquellos insectos primitivos primorosamente conservados en ámbar a la espera de ser descubiertos por algún estudioso en la materia. Sin embargo, […]

“Many years later, in front of the firing squad, Colonel Aureliano Buendía was to remember that remote afternoon when his father took him to meet the ice”. Cien años de soledad.

The plant and the ruin | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

I remember the first time I had an original before my eyes. That pencil-drawn plant contained all the information necessary for the execution of the project: dimensions, levels, finishes, materials, types of walls, ceiling height, program, support, relationship with the immediate environment … More than a plant we could say that it was a map, a latent structure in a […]

Akropolis Now | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

A small professional assignment has led me these days to find careers with a future. It was my first time. I confess that the information found after a first search, reaches a greater relevance in terms of the trend it draws than in terms of the information itself: upward races vs. declining races, skills vs. vocations, techniques vs. thoughts, practices […]

Classes in one word | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

We often remind our teachers both for their works and for their speeches, brief aphorisms in the form of compressed reasonings that so many turns reach over the years. Surely the most classic and well-known “citations” already clustered in the memory, some dogmatic as sentences probably out of focus. However, some of those concise phrases are ingenious and condensed with […]

Unfocused Appointments | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

In general, and except for honorable exceptions, the architects write regular. In fact, the fact of approaching with such passion a task for which we have not been specifically trained has merit. To support our ideas and convictions we often use a recurring tool: the appointment, a brief endorsement of our argument thanks to the timely support of an authoritative […]

Yes needs more | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

This is a strange entrance with respect to the habitual thing and perhaps for that reason it pleases us especially. It is a text that is not specifically dedicated to architecture, nor to its authors; Nor does it talk about urban strategies, energy management or resources and many other issues that have interested us for years. This time we wanted […]

Stairs and disembarkations | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

To the stairs one has to look at her abreast. To attack his tracing walking of backs – or of side – a sudden loss of the balance might suppose1. And the stairs is generous, we would say even detached in the application of the supreme Law of the Gravity2. Any stairs a beginning, an expectation supposes always craft. Probably […]

Formats | Íñigo García Odiaga

Often one thinks that the formatos only give response to the dimensions of the sheets, the linens or the frames, establishing relations between his different dimensions. Thus the dimensions of the paper are organized to industrial level, being based on the number v2 to establish all the relations between the parts and everything. The format is understood therefore as an […]

Lessons of the archetype | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

To beginning of the 20s in Germany, a notable group of traditionalist architects establish – in an individual way – a model sachlich, objectively, for the project of architecture1. Actually, the objectivity arises from the common acceptance of an archetype, a symbolic origin that forms a part of the unconscious group in a certain context. The classification and study of each […]

The refuge of the light | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

They tell that it was on having visited Joan’s Miro workshop in Cala Mayor  when Aimé Maeght understood, with real accuracy, the essential component for his future Foundation in Saint Paul of Wins. After numerous studies and projects of prestigious architects, Maeght would discover a homogeneous and vibrant light in the study of the painter, such an intense light and […]

The expectation of the modern thing | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

In 1957 Paulo Mendes da Rocha designs the chair “Paulistano” for the lounges of the Gymnasium of São Paulo’s Athletic Club. It suits to rescue this brief description in technical which in the design and social commitment they look like two faces of the same currency: “The chair is done by pipe of steel, which is very cheap. It is […]

The drawn city | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

The city constitutes an inexhaustible source of information on us. His arrested observation reveals landscapes in continuous transformation, landscapes in movement: transitory landscapes. The drawing as cognitive instrument of the urban decanting, acts from one of the most former tools that are known: the perspective, the point of view from which the matter, a point is considered or analyzes anyone […]

The architecture of the words | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

Our life passes under the sky of the words: we live in the language. Often we think stubbornly about the word as a mere utensil across which we treat of explicitar our messages and our arguments, poor fllood of words about – we put – the architecture. Nevertheless, in occasions it was looking like that these sets been ordained as […]

Contemporary | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

The Argentine poet was wondering on his contemporary ones, establishing conditions and manners of coexistence beyond a time and an epoch: those who are my contemporary? It was said. The awake enormous question interest, even more in the current moment, a displaced and speculative present in which the label “contemporary” appears as faithful accompanist of the most sweetened felonies: I […]

Inhabitants of the drawing | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

The drawing supposes probably the most valuable tool to see, not only to look, architecture. The cinematographic record of the eye, our vision in movement, our time, conceals often essential aspects from everything what surrounds us, folds of the visible thing only evident under certain conditions of attention and belonging to the place.1 The pleasure of drawing a face, a city […]

Engineering of the Ingenuity | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

The architecture requests a certain predisposition before the finding, something similar to a condition of expectation. The pleasure of the discovery is addictive, stimulant from the militancy of the most contumacious of the ingenuities, often intimately related to the sense of the humor and, in last instance, the intelligence. We imagine that precisely to this Alejandro de la Sota refers […]

Questions about the room | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

The space is the distance between two bodies. The dictionary always so conclusive1. Is here the exact, fenced and seemingly objective definition of the contumacious countless one, container of everything what exists: the space, distance between two bodies. The inoffensive aspect of this geometric precision on the space, actually limits the spatial condition to the constellation of relations between his marginal […]

The liquid architect | Stepienybarno

Every time it is clearer that with only the competitions of the “classic architect”, in the times that run, we cannot come very far. This way, to learn of marketing or Digital Identity turns into fundamental skills to increase our labor possibilities. To it it is necessary to add a third attitude that many are called the liquid talent. From […]

The space of the mirrors | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

The mirrors work as the pupils of a within the walls space, a room outdoor from that they observe us. In occasions there preserve even some recollections of our lives, as the porous and dusty mirrors of the old houses, which seem to examine from the hats and suits to stripes of ours forbears1. Also the mirrors take care of […]

The beginning of the order | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

The box of crystal supposed the most evident expression of the theses of the modernity. The technology and the new materials were allowing the revelation of “a new world – suitably, transparently, crystalline, electrically-, in opposition to the condition – underground, dirty of coal-, that was characterizing to the Victorian work”.1 The architecture establishes an order. Though Mies constructs at […]

Fingerprints and coverages | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

The architecture is born from the meticulous arrangement of fingerprints and coverages. In occasions one of them will be sufficient. The fingerprint is established as a vestige, a sign, an engraving or an emergency on the landscape: the land like “the simplest form of the architecture”.1 The fact of extending to the air a protective surface, of stretching a coverage […]
