Casa de los gigantes | Iterare arquitectos

Ubicada en el barrio valenciano de El Cabañal, la casa de los gigantes aparece como una obra singular dentro de este histórico distrito de pescadores. Su innovación, más allá de estar basada en el empleo de tecnologías de vanguardia fuera de todo contexto y situación, radica en la profunda actualización histórica que en ella se produce. Sin caer en estilos […]

La estructura de cubierta del palacete estaba formada por vigas y correas de madera, sobre las que se apoyaba una ripia de madera, generando una superficie continua […]

Mercados, el alma de la ciudad | Aldo G. Facho Dede

Una de las enseñanzas más hermosas que guardo de mi madre y abuela es haber aprendido a hacer la compra en el mercado, ese maravilloso ritual que repetíamos cada semana, y que empezaba con el armado de la lista y la preparación del canasto. Ya en el mercado pasábamos por los puestos saludando a las “caseras” y “caseros”, y parábamos […]

Buenas intenciones | bRijUNi

A vueltas como estamos siempre bombardeados con rankings y parametrizaciones de dónde se vive mejor y en función de qué, el debate en nuestros país vuela de Madrid a Barcelona, pasa por Zaragoza, Valencia o Bilbao, alcanza Sevilla o directamente estalla en una liga más vertical en la que juegan nuestros pueblos contra las capitales de provincias con la manida […]

Perversas ambiciones | bRijUNi

En “La arquitectura del poder -cómo los ricos y poderosos dan forma a nuestro mundo”, Deyan Sudjic repasa la historia de la arquitectura enlazando nombres de arquitectos y las obras que estos llevaron a cabo por encargos políticos, gobernantes, ejecutivos y presidentes de grandes corporaciones, en un ejercicio que señala una cierta connivencia -extrapolable sin ningún género de dudas hasta […]

Dos pioneros: Buckminster Fuller y Jean Prouvé. Luis Fernández-Galiano Ruíz

“Aunque se conocen experiencias anteriores a la Revolución Industrial, como los métodos de producción del Arsenal de Venecia, la fabricación en serie, “en cadena”, o “en masa”, se ha vinculado muy  particularmente con aquella. Se aplica a la industria armamentística para extenderse, luego, a la textil y a otras muchas más. Hace cien años de su mano se pusieron en […]

Ex novo | bRijUNi

La máquina ha de ser alimentada, el progreso es imparable. No importe adonde miremos, la irrefrenable codicia colonizadora envía sus máquinas, ya sea a un gran secarral aquí al lado o a Guinea para ocuparse del espacio vacío, sea éste de interés social, turístico, económico u otra cosa. Sólo importa que la voraz alimaña no se detenga. Oscuras profecías cinematográficas […]

Who do we preserve heritage for? | Aldo G. Facho Dede

If we asked him which building has more relevance for you? A 19th century house or the house where they arrested Abimael Guzmán? it is probable that he would choose the second one, because of it he has more historical information, and he perceives that he has had more relevance in his present. Well, possibly the first one is protected […]

Reconstruction of housing in Saa | MOL Arquitectura

The reconstruction of a detached house in Saa, in Carballeda de Avia, Ourense, responded to the need for the property to recover the building after the very serious fire that completely devastated the area. The intervention was approached in the most respectful way with the heritage and with the memory of the place, but through the use of contemporary construction […]

Juan’s Apartment | vora

Before our intervention, in this apartment overlapping stages could be appreciated. Several uses through time accumulated layer over layer. At a first glance one could feel a strange and blurred atmosphere. But beyond confusion we could appreciate the power of its original defining features: a sequence of linked spaces, separated by a powerful rhythm of bearing walls; the distinction of […]

Bauhaus, minimalist agreement | Marcelo Gardinetti

The reconstruction of demolished architectural heritage induces, fortunately, interpretations that exceed the representation of the work itself. These definitions erect parallel or antagonistic positions that cause different controversies, which generally increase the idea of patrimonial value. The reconstruction of the houses designed by Walter Gropius for the masters of the Bauhaus affected by war actions during the second war offered […]

Dussart Pedrón Winery | Crux Arquitectos

En la línea de tiempo de las edificaciones hay muchas vidas diferentes, y todas marcan de alguna manera a las siguientes. Las mismas construcciones, los mismos paisajes, en momentos diferentes son percibidas de manera diferente; vividas, al fin y al cabo, bajo otras circunstancias. En esas vidas, además de pasar por usos diferentes, transformaciones, abandonos y renacimientos, se pasa por […]

Muez gastro-bookshop | El Tejado Azul

It’s interesting how architecture, the most normal and common examples of which, still have the ability to surprise us. Within their compactness, dark spaces are hidden and in the expanse of their walls; fragments of life. A mortar door is a renouncing and a creation, a layer of paint, a new intention; a buried pavement, a regret; an indoor balcony, […]

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 […]

Refurbishment of a ground floor located in the neighborhood of Ca n’Aurell, in the city center of Terrassa, close to Barcelona. The building is from 1925 and highlights its reinforced concrete structure, very innovative for its time, with spans up to 10 meters. However, the successive transformations of the space over the years have hidden the original structure after a […]

Restoration of Fonte da Burga in Caldas de Reis | Luis Gil+Cristina Nieto

To be employed at the time and at the goods and architectures that others thought and constructed before that we, it has an after-taste to collaborate with these other architects who already are not. If Viollec Le Duc says that restoring is to return the original blood to the building, which it is called the style, also it is to […]

Restoration of the Glez Barros Pantheon | Luis Gil+Cristina Nieto

Returning life to the funeral architecture. “The city of the dead men has been traditionally a succinct version of that of the alive ones, and a laboratory of architecture, gardening and sculpture. Of the urns in the shape of cabin to the palatial pantheons or the niches beehive of social grave, the nature and the fractures of a culture can […]
