Descubrir y aprender | Óscar Tenreiro Degwitz

Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961), junto a otros, nos ayudó a comprender que el inconsciente tutela o motiva por caminos impredecibles nuestros actos. Ese inconsciente, según el mismo Jung, tiene también una dimensión colectiva, que comparten sociedades enteras.

The distinctive modernity of Norman Foster | Marcelo Gardinetti

Far from the process of ambiguous and controversial representation promoted by the postmodern convulsion that dominated the architectural scene of the early 80s, the work of Norman Foster, aligned with the thought of Richard Rogers and Renzo Piano, was promulgated in favor of a technological update of the modernity. His work ponders the mechanical analogies of the modern movement and […]

The architects and their private devil | Óscar Tenreiro Degwitz

Two things were recorded to me from a teenage reading of El Diablo, by Giovanni Papini (1881-1956), which gave the author some difficulties with the ecclesiastical world. The first, that the greatest success of the evil spirit is to make us believe that it does not exist; the second the cover of that edition, the face of the Devil painted […]

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 […]
