Underworld | Íñigo García Odiaga

Architecture as a society has its low funds. These dark and hidden places, in which life goes differently. The refinement of luxury and pageantry have been lost in those spaces, to give importance exclusively to that which is essential. In 1957, Le Corbusier built Santa Maria de La Tourette, a floating convent on the green slopes of Éveaux, on the […]

La casa de Victoria. Rehabilitación de vivienda | contextos de arquitectura y urbanismo

La Casa de Victoria, se ubica en un anodino edificio del centro de Valladolid. Sus mayores cualidades son una provechosa orientación, y por tanto iluminación, así como su gran superficie.  La pequeña escala de una rehabilitación no es impedimento para reflexionar en torno a conceptos como confortabilidad, calidez, proximidad, luz, textura, tacticidad, tibieza, penumbra;  conceptos y categorías universales; que parecen […]

It is possible that we have lost up to our aptitude to get excited – of crying, says James Elkins– also opposite to the artistic fact. And we have lost it because we lack the necessary […]

The concept […]

“Paul Klee does not deserve a museum, but a landscape”. Renzo Piano’s reflection with regard to the Paul KleeCenter ensues energy from the operation realized in the design of the museum, instituted as honoring to the artist Suizo.

Catacresis of architecture | Marcelo Gardinetti

Frank Gehry’s work is deliberately singular. One declares in favour of the representation of a confused and disintegrated environment that it reflects his own vision of the city. His buildings countersign these characters by means of the assembly of dissimilar, fragmented, decorative elements, foreign to any established order. It uses of visual ambiguities, colors and textures to compose the objet […]
