El regreso de Ladón al jardín de las Hespérides. Crónica posible de otro paisaje vertical | José Javier Alayón González

Crónica posible En este tapiz, que cuelga de la arquitectura como el proyecto que relata esta ficción periodística, están tejidos los mitos que urden esta reflexión sobre el paisaje canario. Un jardín atlántico donde se imaginó cultivando a las hermanas Hespérides y, lo más que nos seduce, donde la tierra todavía lo puede hacer rebrotar. Los hechos relatados aquí, algunos […]

New tools proyectuales of reference: Common Spaces | Miquel Lacasta Introduction Productive landscapes. The idea of landscape has opened a gap in the considerations and the traditional beginning of the body to discipline of the architecture and the urbanism.

New tools proyectuales of reference: Common Spaces | Miquel Lacasta

The time of the laments is in the habit of opening way to a serene and sometimes bold reflection. The vision and the reading of the field after the battle, removes reflections, and of form more convulsed that programmed, it activates new hopes. The current situation, not only in local terms, but worldwide, should promote a rigorous debate on the […]

Esquizo. Ricardo Bofill, Paolo Portoghesi and José Luis Guarner | Jorge Gorostiza

It often happens that looking for something in a newspaper or magazine, you will find something else, sometimes more interesting, than the one originally wanted. This has happened recently in the newspaper library of La Vanguardia, where I found an article that links two architects with a film and a film critic. The architects are Paolo Portoghesi and Ricardo Bofill, the film […]

Unstable equilibrium | Íñigo García Odiaga

It is said that the classical Greek sculpture reached its maximum splendor when it began to use the contrapposto. This Italian term could be defined as the relation that the different parts of the body establish when initiating the movement. The weight of the body rests mainly on one leg, so that the corresponding hip rises with respect to the […]

Towards a minor architecture

“A minor architect is a minor destructive character, handyman and hacker, journalist and editor, alter ego and subordinate. Who is skilled at fixing, can also sabotage, and knows how to dismantle as well as assemble”. Jill Stoner, Towards a minor architecture. Architecture can no longer be limited to the art of making buildings, it must also invent the policy of undoing […]

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 […]

Populism is defeated in the city | Óscar Tenreiro Degwitz

It is true that the urban environment, we said last week, influences the citizen in a way that creates differences between individuals, differences that can separate, exclude, be a factor of unrest and tension.

Twentysix (Abandoned) Gasoline Stations

Iñaki Bergera discovered on a trip along the West Coast of the United States a desolate landscape, apparently barren, that exuded beauty. The beauty of everyday life His narrative purity.

Standing up | Íñigo García Odiaga

Our culture and language leads us to exposing us often to the risk of coming to superficial conclusions, based precisely on information taken of the epidermis of the things. The rapid and fast consumption of images despises the search of an interior truth. The “good look” is according to the dictionary that one that defines the good aspect or way […]

Dis-cover | Sergio de Miguel

Since seekers of effective surprises our creative capacity can remain reduced by the existence of too many caps of information. Impeded by a dense coverage of unconscious hypotheses, inherited concepts and not expressed ideas. Only we manage to liberate ourselves in an effective way when, from the practice of a lateral thought, we are capable of preventing the preconceived valuations, […]

Zumthor, between the quiet and the seduction | Marcelo Gardinetti

One of Peter Zumthor‘s principal motivations with regard to his own work consists of proposing the immediate understanding of the constructed object, to dive by means of a primary observation the emotional sensibility of his spectators. In search of this aim, Zumthor tries that the combinations of forms, materials, colors and textures, they amalgamate in the perceptive thought, giving place […]
