Thinking with your hands. New seven lamps of artisan beauty | Izaskun Chinchilla Architects

Craftsmanship was very prestigious and received great public attention with the Arts & Crafts movement, which was born in England and spread through Europe before Modernity. Our exhibition design wanted to honor a fundamental book of that time “The Seven Lamps of Architecture”, written in 1849 by John Ruskin because, although it is dedicated to architecture, the reflections on craftsmanship […]

Alberto Corral Corral · Ubuild, a new construction system in wood

We have seen how the architects these years have recovered and covered diverse fields of work, even explored in some less common ones such as research and development of products or systems, mainly populated by other professionals. Although I+D is an area that has not been very prolific in architecture lately, we find some cases such as the Galician architect, […]

House in Brión | ARKB-Arrokabe arquitectos

The project that concerns us is a small single-family house on the ground floor, with the “sieteymedio” system. “Sieteymedio” system is a wooden construction system, designed by Arrokabe arquitectos, modulated and at the same time flexible, that allows to efficiently solve both the structure and external enclosures and the relationship between both. The final image is based on design guidelines […]

Arrokabe Arquitectos · I+D+I | sistema 7 1/2

One of these fields, the traditional and habitual one in other professions, is recounted to the world of the research and development. Area that of architecture lately has not been very prolific.

Josep Renau. American Way of Life. PHE 14

The Valencian artist Josep Renau (1907–1982) was a remarkable exponent of the photomontage technique. His links with the Communist Party, dating back to 1931, together with his political views and the influence of art movements such as Expressionism, Dadaism and Surrealism, led him to the conviction that art should be used as a revolutionary weapon. After the Spanish Civil War, […]

Aristide Antonas | Pedro Hernández

Though Aristide Antonas (@antonas) has web, of this own of an architect, that they gather his writings, his projects and similar; and though this one due published, so much in paper as for Internet; I have to say that I did not know it for these means, but across his Flickr’s account, a long before the same web was in my […]

A Guide to Archigram 1961-74

Archigram: Cult-Architecture.

The text reviews an earlier edition of Dennis Crompton (Concerning Archigram) published by Academy Editions in 1994. Perhaps because of its size, the book enables a very close reading […]

Exposición Gran de Area 2007 | Ansede+Quintans+Ríos

For this assembly, there is formed an interior space, independent from the existing one, with pipes of electricity and props, exploiting the material and expressive quality that these elements have and that only is in the habit of being visible in punctual moments of work. There appears in addition an ephemeral royal assembly, that is to say, that not only […]

Cápsulas de realidad | Isabel Tallos

For Isabel Tallos, the photograph is the most competent middle to worry, disorienting or to disturb to the bystander. It offers a reality capsule, an only point of view of an extirpated situation fragment and is presented definite, in another situation and another time. “Works that Isabel presents us Tallos, they are small dose of reality”, Nuria Blanco points out, […]
