Interiors that act | Jorge Gorostiza

A few months ago, preparing a lecture that I was going to give at the School of Architecture of Valladolid, invited by GIRAC, I was looking for more information about Albert Bela Viragh, a scenographer I had already written about, and I found an advertisement for the movie Empty Ams directed by Frank Reicher, published in several American film magazines […]

Now, when so many university Spanish graduates they are going to work out because they do not have another remedy, abundant news comes to us from that are well, even very well, accepted, for his high formation and efficiency.

The origins of the architecture (IV) | epR

Often I ask myself when it was begun to speak about energy efficiency. Or, better, when this argument transformed in mere demagoguery and in absolute value capable of justifying mediocre projects. Turning the pages of books of Bernard Rudofsky or Myron Goldfinger we recognize another type of energy efficiency – but also economic and social – capable of forming humanized […]

The intimacy | Jorge Meijide

The intimacy For already a certain time I am turning him at about the intimacy. This slippery concept that it has to see with our sphere, since it would define Sloterdijk[1], more internal and that we preserve of the eager curiosity of the world that surrounds us. The intimacy is confused often with the privacy. Both are different concepts. We […]

The origins of the architecture (III) | epR

We find them in the most unexpected place: on having doubled the corner, in the square of the neighborhood, or in this piece of open land that we believed stranger for the rest of the world. They are the author’s architectures, ostentatious offerings to the eternity of major architects who resist as obscene recollections of last times. Today they lie, […]

The origins of the architecture (II) | epR

A fissure exists between the architect and the company. It is not exactly an abyss, is not a deep pit, but there is something that separates it from those for whom, in last instance, he conceives his projects. There is not a question himself to quarrel the one who has reason but of assuming that a problem of communication exists […]

The origins of the architecture (I) | epR

The architecture is, by his own nature, a discipline mediated. On the contrary that a painter or a poet, the architect sees how his idea takes form through numerous intermediaries. It is part of this thick skin discipline that it does of the architecture a slow paquidermo in front of the eclosión of new avant-gardes, but that at the same […]

Everything it has a beginning | Jorge Meijide

Everything it has a beginning The architecture endures to live and to live endures, inexcusably, the inhabitant. Without this one we can speak about sculpture, about certain artistic facilities or about formal games, all of them of indisputable value propositivo, but difficultly we can speak about architecture in his more wide and extensive expression. This one to live carries a […]

Miraflores’s Baths. Hector Velarde | Fernando Freire Forga

In search of the origins of the modern architecture in Peru I thought that there existed a building that it might have meant the beginning: Miraflores’s Baths, projected by the architect Hector Velarde between 1934 and 1935. Though by the Peruvian historians this building has been catalogued inside the so called architecture – locally – as ” Style Nose ” […]

The Modern Form in the One-family Peruvian Housing 1950-1970 | Fernando Freire Forga

The modern movement arises as consequence of the social ideology of the epoch, the artistic evolution, the technological reached advances and the new trends of life in the developed countries. Critics recount, that chronologically the modern architecture, is recognized after the artistic revolution happened during the forefronts of beginnings of the 20th century.

The first spot | Jorge Gorostiza

A few months ago I found in the yearbook Motion Picture Studio Directory, edited in EE. UU. in 1921, which might be the first advertisement of an art director, and I write «it might be», because it is the first one that I have found, but there can be previous others. It published it, I suppose that paying it, a […]

Torre de control aereo

To speak of the history of the aerial control have to remit us to United States, at the beginning of the 20th century. The first pilots flew so alone looking to the horizon and the points of reference in earth. This had a serious disadvantage, since the clouds often hindered the vision of the horizon and of firm earth. Archie […]
