Conversation | Sergio de Miguel

We could think that when we use the term conversation we approach to describe what we understand for dialog, and for extension for monologue, but actually they are distant expressions. To have a conversation remains removed of giving or imposing logics or dual or individual challenges. Emparenta of more precise form in spite of gathering in crowds meaningfully to proceed […]

The dibrujo | Sergio de Miguel

“In hands of the architect, the la’piz constitutes a bridge between the mind that he imagines and the image that appears in the leaf of paper; in the ecstasy of the work, the draftsman forgets both his hand and the pencil and the image emerges as if it was an automatic projection of the mind that he imagines; or probably […]

Leiro Seniors Day Center | müller.feijoo arquitectos

The plot on which the day center is built, very close and slightly elevated on the course of the river Avia, has a strong natural slope transformed by a system of stepped terraces called socalcos formed by walls of granite masonry, a traditional system very usual in this region of vineyards that allows to have arable land in plots in […]

Sorting out toys | Sergio de Miguel

There are universes, ours is one, where there are joined a countless number of diverse presences. They join, are connected, congregate, gather in crowds, and sometimes they are accumulated. Often they agglomerate and assemble, are gathered and pile up, even they are packed in not measurable quantities. Then we tend to produce, inevitably, meaningful connections, links, binds and links. Orders. […]

The dissonance and the paradox | Marcelo Gardinetti

“Since the mid-seventies, Stirling has shown his struggle against the boredom produced by the repetition of modern architecture, against its triviality and its inability to situate itself in historical contours. For this he tried to display a work that was narrative and figurative and, at the same time, abstract and technologically advanced”.1 The architectural work of Stirling goes through the […]

The air is weightless | Sergio de Miguel

As the ocean is formed especially by water, the architecture is done principally by air. Even so that determines what happens in the ocean, and in the architecture, is not another thing that what is not a water, or air. Continent and content are never unlike, remote, and coincidental. When we refer to the matter with which the architecture is […]

Bauhaus, minimalist agreement | Marcelo Gardinetti

Bauhaus, minimalist agreement | Marcelo Gardinetti

The reconstruction of demolished architectural heritage induces, fortunately, interpretations that exceed the representation of the work itself. These definitions erect parallel or antagonistic positions that cause different controversies, which generally increase the idea of patrimonial value. The reconstruction of the houses designed by Walter Gropius for the masters of the Bauhaus affected by war actions during the second war offered […]

Opportunity | Sergio de Miguel

The most valuable quality of any action propositiva is to have a measured approach and an elegant intention with which to affect emotionally. To manage to wake up associations that stimulate the thought. To be capable of understanding the solution of a guessed right and suitable way. To distinguish profitable resources and to find the keys that explain the ideal […]

The bicycle | Sergio de Miguel

Let’s fix us in the bicycle. This beautiful ma’quina. His result has managed to be so polished and exact that scarcely it has had to change in de’cadas. His slow development has not allowed another thing that the ambitious sofisticacio’n of his components. One could not have modified the quality and quantity of his pieces, or systems of pieces. As […]

House PI | Enrique Jerez

P and I are our clients, the owners of a house with land in this neighborhood of the Obra Sindical del Hogar, inaugurated in 1946 and located southwest of the city of Burgos. The original homes are very interesting: modest, rational, constructively simple and based on what could be considered a vernacular or popular architecture. Unfortunately, at present the neighborhood […]

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 […]

Projecting with nature | Guido Cimadomo

Every time I find more interest in immersing myself in nature than in visiting the latest examples of author architecture. On a recent trip to Australia, a European architect marveled that he had not planned to visit the Sydney Opera House. Despite the distances of the Australian continent, seemed scandalized in my interest for nature, for the forests of the […]

En el tiempo. Carlos Cánovas

“His photographs are poetic monuments built at intermediate moments that precede or recall major social and industrial changes, which leave traces in the space we inhabit”. In time, it is a journey through the work of Carlos Cánovas from the 80s to the present through 128 photographs grouped in six successive series: Tapias (1980), Extramuros (1983-1990), Vallès Oriental (1990), Landscape […]

In many processes of investigation that we carry out to find the real possibilities of action it depends on our capacity identifying and distinguishing. Of exercising this iteration, this to return to the knowledge from the attention and the intention in search of new fields of interpretation. Opening one to examine intensely, one to ascend on having been able to […]

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 […]

On-tuición | Sergio de Miguel

Our nature has provided an innate skill to us. The aptitude to use a type of deep, perceptive and inexplicable knowledge, for which we manage to understand and imagine realities without having to come to elaborated reasonings. A luck of instantaneous creativity that, showing him independently from the acquired knowledge, shows secretly sometimes as a happy hunch and always as […]

Architecture and ecosystem logic | Miquel Lacasta

We might think that the mimetic model of the architecture with the nature does not have today any force or that it is not pertinent to think the architecture. We might say that the scientific advances and all his formulations have scanty links with the occupation of an architect and that far from occupying a central space in the reflection […]

From the paradigm of the complexity | axonometrica

If we assume easily for that the architecture always his boss, his model has looked in the nature to continuing, when not to imitating, and that historically always there has been one symbiosis between the natural thing and the architectural thing, we will agree that a substantial change in the conception of the nature, he will carry necessarily a substantial […]

Along the 20th century the concept of complexity has been joining practically all the areas of the knowledge.

Many of the previous concepts, though they […]

Objet trouvé [06] : Stirling and the vane of the Florey | Rodrigo Almonacid

In the moment to project the building Florey for the Queens College (St. Clements, Oxford, 1968-71), James Stirling already had seen finished two of his better works: the School of Engineering of the University of Leicester (1959-63) and the library of the Faculty of History for the University of Cambridge (1964-67). Three projects constitute his already mythical “Red Trilogy”, name […]

Charles Ventrillon | Óscar Tenreiro Degwitz

Fifty years ago we had a teacher in the Faculty of Architecture that it was teaching to draw. His education nothing had to see with tricks or formulae but with foundations, with what it precedes the act itself of drawing, it might be said. He was saying to us for example that it was important to observe in general, which […]
