About the standardization of the wrong technology | Marc Chalamanch

Technological determinism tries to explain how technology by itself is capable of influencing and transforming in a positive way the socioeconomic context in which it develops. According to its followers, technology has become the central axis of the historical changes that determine development and social progress; […]

Lately the notion of self-organization has taken a certain protagonism in the conception of the city and the architecture, probably to political / social current recomic singer of the situation.

Parametric architecture and informational design. Beyond mere formalism | Miguel Villegas

The parametricism, or rather, the guru of parametricism, with its ill-fated manifesto has done a lot of damage to those who, like us, work with digital tools trying to stay on this side of formal banality.

Looking down | Íñigo García Odiaga

To reject the direct look of the eyes can be a symptom of shame or coyness, this way it is in the habit of being interpreted when someone us lowers the look. But in some cultures like the Japanese it is a symptom of respect. For the architect this gesture can be of submission. Mies lowers the look to get […]

The kitchen of the Oíza´s grandmother | La choricera de Segovia

Years ago I listened to Sáenz de Oíza to speak against the excessively functional design, and it put a very convincing example. He spoke that the functional kitchen of the Bauhaus had all the necessary elements foreseen exhaustively, up to the last detail, and all this perfectly modulated and optimized. It was a marvel that in the twenties, while the […]

Let’s think of shaping without disadvantages the volume that we wish for an estacia from a resistant and constant mass.
