«In the cathedrals already nobody prays out of the pre-established hours. No believer gives up to the concentration even an instant during his tourist walk. 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 […]

From the constructive thing like theory | Miquel Lacasta Codorniu

From the constructive thing like theory The reality is always an organization, or complex configuration, which is constituted constant. This way raised, this affirmation stops to guess a beginning of very simple bottom: the fact that something is constructed constant it does not make it less royal, independently of which they are the pieces that integrate this construction. The fact […]

With some frequency it appears in the press – that can never avoid what should ignore intelligently – a supposed “ranking” of the Universities, in relation to the investigation or to the totality, and where always there appear big holders in whom one affirms that the Spanish women are to the tail, none between the 100 first ones of the […]

Come from Geography and geometry have been intimately joined from the origins of the urbanism. Across the geometry the planning of the cultures became simple, and also the construction of the city.
