New tools proyectuales of reference: Productive Landscapes | axonometrica

5.0 01 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. Actually the logics of the landscape, interpreted of opened form, allow to understand the relations between environments, that is to say they throw new readings between, of a side, […]

New tools proyectuales of reference: Common Spaces | Miquel Lacasta

5.0 02 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 […]

The Canal de Castilla is the great effort of Spanish hydraulic engineering at the end of the 18th century. The late son of the Enlightenment and early victim […]

VAD 02. Call for Papers. The prototypes

5.0 02 Si en el primer número de VAD. veredes, arquitectura y divulgación se descansaba la mirada en “los inicios”, en aquellos comienzos y principios que proporcionan de manera tangible o simbólica lo que desea existir, ahora se quiere explorar con amplitud los parámetros pertenecientes a los orígenes. Ese surgir, nacer y aparecer, donde germina la arquitectura. “La naturaleza será […]

The bollards, my father and the Norwegians | José Ramón Hernández Correa

5.0 04 A few years ago my father was walking along his neighborhood. It had rained and the soil was wet. One slipped and fell with so bad luck that his chest found in the fall a metallic bollard that broke a rib and bruised him a lung. The rib knit soon and the pulmonary injury was not very serious, […]

Demonstrate for a new clinical reason in the architecture | Miquel Lacasta

5.0 02 Demonstrate for a new clinical reason in the architecture.1  We are installed in a time disgregado, opened to multiple interpretations of the reality. We advance helter-skelter between infinite clouds of information banalizada and by excess and exuberance, are unable to detect the limits, the solapamientos, the densities and the specific weights of the real. We live in an […]

The car house | Íñigo García Odiaga

5.0 01 Between 1934 and 1935 Mies van der Rohe developed the study of patio houses. Houses that are reduced to a minimum domestic program, which are isolated from the city, without a concrete context beyond their own inhabitant, a hypothetical Mies.1 But among all these houses there is a unique proposal, the so-called Patio House “with garage”. The orthogonality […]

The attributes of La Tourette | Marcelo Gardinetti

5.0 01 Two design circumstances were decisive to establish the character that typifies the architecture of the Convent of La Tourette. The first is embodied by defining the horizontal plane governing the highest point of the terrain, so that, from that horizontal, the building descends copying the irregular topography of the slope. The second is to mutate the concept of […]

Egg Chair. Arne Jacobsen | Borja López Cotelo

5.0 01 When crossing the door of the Radisson SAS, hotel, on the bustling Vesterbrogade avenue, something strange happens. Time seems suspended. On the other side of the street, the Tivoli faces its dreamlike exuberance to the strict geometry that Arne Jacobsen drew for his tower in the Center of Copenhagen. But in the lobby of the Radisson, everything seems […]

Los procesos Re- como expiación | Javier Mozas

5.0 02 La Humanidad ha consolidado, a lo largo del tiempo, una morbosa relación de amor y odio con la Naturaleza. Admiración y contemplación, o dominio y sometimiento. En la conferencia que pronuncia Rem Koolhaas en Harvard el 3 de abril de 2009 bajo el título Sustainability: advancement versus apocalypse,1 mostró en las primeras imágenes, una pintura de Caspar David […]

5.0 01 Con la habitual agudeza crítica y rigor investigador de Josep Quetglas, el libro documenta exhaustivamente los antecedentes, el encargo, el desarrollo y modificaciones de los sucesivos proyectos, los presupuestos en los que Le Corbusier profundizaba en la definición material de la casa y la construcción. También se trata la azarosa vida de esta obra, que incluye la ocupación […]

The challenge of the significance | Miquel Lacasta

5.0 01 This suggestive title Joaquim Español gives it in the chapter 13 of Forma y consistencia.1 The book thinks brings over of a double distortion. On the one hand in many contemporary architectures still late the old phrase of Mies Van der Rohe we reject to recognize problems of form. That is to say, the architecture must be understood like […]

Ant Chair. Arne Jacobsen | Borja López Cotelo

5.0 01 Arne Jacobsen considered himself, above all, an architect. But the transcendence of his furniture has made him recognized as an industrial designer, something he always tried to escape. Jacobsen believed that design, architecture and the arts could function as a whole, according to the ideas of gesamtkunstwerk. This ideal of artistic synthesis led him to design the chair […]

The same and the different | Sergio de Miguel

5.0 01 “Nadie come naranjas bajo la luna llena”. Federico García Lorca When we have to proceed, in any area, we do so through distinctions, through disjunctive elections. Then we try to discern broad categories. Often involuntary. But what we always distinguish, by pure instinct, is everything that relates and unites in front of what separates and separates. What is […]

Plato wins | José Ramón Hernández Correa

5.0 03 We all know a couple of things on Platón, or maybe only one: “That said that the objects that we see and feel are scarcely a vague shade, a pale reflection of the ideal objects, which us turn out to be unattainable and are beyond our perception, as archetypes.” Each and every of the hammers of the world […]

Building bridges between society and architects | Stepienybarno

5.0 01 What is the distance that separates architecture from society? Or rather to the architects of the society we should serve. On this topic we have tried to get into other post and we believe that it is one of the most important keys to solve today. Architecture is something that, in principle, should matter to everyone, because there […]

Unstable equilibrium | Íñigo García Odiaga

5.0 01 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 […]

Classes in one word | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

5.0 01 We often remind our teachers both for their works and for their speeches, brief aphorisms in the form of compressed reasonings that so many turns reach over the years. Surely the most classic and well-known “citations” already clustered in the memory, some dogmatic as sentences probably out of focus. However, some of those concise phrases are ingenious and […]

VAD 01. Call for Papers. The begins

5.0 01 LOS INICIOS. Del latín initium, inicio es un término que la propia RAE define con un sinónimo, comienzo, que a su vez se revela como “principio, origen o raíz de algo”. Por tanto, un inicio puede enfocarse desde dos puntos vista: desde lo tangible, relacionado con la existencia de un orden o de una serie de elementos estructurados […]

Y desde Stepienybarno, cada vez nos parece más importante analizar cuál es papel que jugamos los arquitectos en este planteamiento.

Conversation | Sergio de Miguel

5.0 01 We could think that when we use the term conversation we approach to describe what we understand for dialog, and for extension for monologue, but actually they are distant expressions. To have a conversation remains removed of giving or imposing logics or dual or individual challenges. Emparenta of more precise form in spite of gathering in crowds meaningfully […]

Momentum II. Self, shell, shelter.

5.0 02 We live in a global world where, due to hyper connectivity, information is stored without any filter in the global network. But, is there any possibility of going beyond the concept of image as simple visual information? What is the difference between an image, a memory and a postcard? What can we represent through a graphic document? MOMENTUM […]

The architects and their private devil | Óscar Tenreiro Degwitz

5.0 01 Two things were recorded to me from a teenage reading of El Diablo, by Giovanni Papini (1881-1956), which gave the author some difficulties with the ecclesiastical world. The first, that the greatest success of the evil spirit is to make us believe that it does not exist; the second the cover of that edition, the face of the […]
