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 […]

It is a question of the integral rehabilitation of a house located in Bugarra (Valencia), in a deep plot between medians where a business and housing on higher floors coexist on the ground floor.

It will be very difficult to forget the first time I saw The battleship Potemkin, the film directed by Sergei M.

Refurbishment of a small attached house | Mendaro Arquitectos

Workspace, exhibition space (and hidden dwelling). The premise was to carry out the refurbishment of a row house built in the 20s, classified as “recognized poverty housing”. There was a limited budget and the place’s character had to be kept in the outside. It has a front and a back garden. The idea was to set up an artist residency […]

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 […]

P and I are our clients, the owners of a house with land in this neighborhood of the Obra Sindical del Hogar, inaugurated in 1946 and located southwest of the city of Burgos.

Unfortunately, at present the neighborhood […]

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 […]

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 […]

Rehabilitation of traditional housing in Moscoso | Liqe arquitectura

Usually a project involves creating something out of nothing; but sometimes, as in this case, it is about strengthening something that was already there. A long stone building, with a powerful balcony facing the valley, to the north. An elevated shed leaning on a warped and also excessively long wood beam, with three facades made out of stone and one […]
