The origins of the architecture (III) | epR

We find them in the most unexpected place: on having doubled the corner, in the square of the neighborhood, or in this piece of open land that we believed stranger for the rest of the world. They are the author’s architectures, ostentatious offerings to the eternity of major architects who resist as obscene recollections of last times. Today they lie, […]

The origins of the architecture (II) | epR

A fissure exists between the architect and the company. It is not exactly an abyss, is not a deep pit, but there is something that separates it from those for whom, in last instance, he conceives his projects. There is not a question himself to quarrel the one who has reason but of assuming that a problem of communication exists […]

How much does architect gain? | Stepienybarno

That the architects we are lined is something that the whole world knows; but not a few, all! Without exception. They have been years of great profit for the architecture and for his executors, that is to say, we the architects; so, now, we cannot complain about anything! These words will be neither the first one nor the last time […]

What do we make the Spanish architects?

The initiative what do we make the Spanish architects? It will be carried out in a double format, materialized in two phases: the first one articulated by means of a series of round tables supported by presence and debates in social networks, followed by the second one, a sample in the shape of “market”, in which the diversity of the […]

The origins of the architecture (I) | epR

The architecture is, by his own nature, a discipline mediated. On the contrary that a painter or a poet, the architect sees how his idea takes form through numerous intermediaries. It is part of this thick skin discipline that it does of the architecture a slow paquidermo in front of the eclosión of new avant-gardes, but that at the same […]

Architects for s. XXI (IV) | epR

They are bad times to live of the architecture. The days happen without the telephone sounds, without Herbert Johnson entrusts us a few offices or the father Couturier insists on contracting to construct a chapel us in The Vosges. Because of it now it is the moment to affirm, as the haughty laborer of Madariaga, that in my hunger I […]

Eight recommendations to the architects for Walter Gropius | Fernando Freire Forga

During his visit to Peru, in 1953, Walter Gropius realized eight recommendations to the architects. “Walter Gropius was entertained by a cocktail in the Architects’ Company that constituted simultaneously an institutional success. Don Rafael Marquina, on having delivered the diploma that he it accredits as honorary partner to him, said that his presence in the bosom of the Company was constituting […]

Architects for s. XXI (II) | epR

We believed difficultly that the things were deteriorating, but we were wrong. The global crisis there has joined in Spain a new legal frame that, sooner or later, will turn the architect into an insignificant figure to do architecture. We still have the consolation of thinking that Chesterton would have found this paradox hilarious, or of remembering Steinberg’s words when […]

For the reason of the Architecture | Jose Ramon Hernández Correa

I believe that today, more that, it is never necessary to recover the title of that series of sixteen articles that Frank Lloyd Wright wrote from March, 1908 until December, 1928 in the magazine The Architectural Record: “In The Cause of Architecture”. With them the Architecture speaks about his form of dealing, but, over it, does a declaration of love […]

And neither there is fortuitous the formal complex structure that contains it, relating the life of almost 200 prominent figures who shared building across a […]

Again, we encourage with a rather different entry. To seeing if you like it. I am a student of architecture, a student without name, because, here and now, how I call it is not important. I believe that my words represent many students of architecture and it yes that it is more important. For more information, I am in third […]

In his day, if someone was nominating you the word “the architect” already you were imagining important someone whom almost it was possible to revere. Nevertheless, at present, the profession has fallen down in misery; on the one hand, there associates to a sector speculator who macizó happens Spain and, for other one, though the expression is hard, they do […]

Studies of architecture or companies of architecture? | Stepienybarno

It is clear that to be an architect today is a profession, when less, complicated it, for not saying of high risk. The crisis is beastly for all, but in our sector of the architecture and the construction it has damaged more than in the majority. For it, it seems to us to be interesting us to stop to think […]

Ciclo. Arquitecturas del Siglo XXI. Arquitectos sin arquitectura

The economic and social current situation us forces us to raise a structural change of the professional model of the Architecture. In a slow – capitalist company (some of they of them already call post-capitalist) western as ours, the role of the architect has become much more complex. We have to attend to challenges that go beyond the constructive thing, […]

4 years of crisis have left sequelas more than considerable in almost all the professions, and one of which more is  resintiendo is the one of the architecture. The situation goes back  increasingly critical and, even, in means generalistas, like the recent article of Anatxu Zabalbeascoa, Historias de la arquitectura ‘mileurista’, do  echo of the situation. Few days afterwards, began […]

In this book the authors analyse with absolute coolness the current situation of the profession of Architect. With an offer of professionals that exceeds the 55.000 and a missing demand, the situation of the profession does  tragically dramatic. For “Arquitectos en la encrucijada” is not only the exercise of a profession that was and that no longer is. It is […]

Looking for work as young architect: A few suggestions | Lourdes Bueno-Miguel Villegas

We go time with this topic in the mind. We are a small study and with a still short path, with what whenever we receive a curriculum, and we receive many, it overwhelms us to see so much potential of that we cannot take advantage. And since we cannot contract all the tremendous architects that you ask for work us, […]

I need an architect. Why? | Lourdes Bueno-Miguel Villegas

A question opportunely thrown by our admired Carlos Cámara  put the finger in the sore and it has made us recover an internal debate that we liked to extract to the light. Why do people prefer to a builder before that to an architect? Carlos was not raising a dichotomy, was giving for this reality made, the people do not want […]

The strengths of the architect | Stepienybarno

Some time ago a good friend of ours was commenting to us that for him, the architects we were like ducks. These animals are of air, are of land and are of water, do everything, though they do nothing excessively well. So, this curious comparison uses us as introduction to see what is what we understand that we make or […]
