The border of contact, encounter and exchange space | Luis Gil

The border of contact, encounter and exchange space | Luis Gil

The intrinsic nature of the border is that of being an area of danger, an insecure space in which the development of the essential tasks of life requires a state of continuous alertness. It is the space for the exchange of energy, where it is released or integrated into new areas, which implies a constant rebalancing of the forces acting […]

The plan as a tool for border overflow | Luis Gil

The border as a tense space that opposes its transit, requires effort, determination, formal or fundamental change to be transgressed and overcome or inhabited temporarily or continuously. Thus, the passage through the border or the limit, the jump from one medium to another implies the discovery of a technique that makes possible the survival in the other margin, the change, […]

The plant and the ruin | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

I remember the first time I had an original before my eyes. That pencil-drawn plant contained all the information necessary for the execution of the project: dimensions, levels, finishes, materials, types of walls, ceiling height, program, support, relationship with the immediate environment … More than a plant we could say that it was a map, a latent structure in a […]

The border, artificial and invented mechanism | Luis Gil

In this way when the natural barrier (the geographical accident) artificially used to protect the interior ecosystem, is insufficient, inadequate or non-existent for the desired economic or social use, then man develops not only artificiality over the natural but also takes a step more and build an ex-novo border. It is an invention that saves the natural deficiency, and around […]

VAD 02 The Prototypes

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 cambiada por […]

Limits, nature and artifice | Luis Gil

When talking about limit or border, the words of bankruptcy or separation are instantly added to the conversation. A first approach to the definition of boundary or border spaces, would limit them as those areas of emptiness or obstacle that are shaped or structured as a nature that is little or not practicable, in which the movement slows down or […]

Mastery as a fundamental and physical problem of boundary and border phenomena | Luis Gil

The movement and walking is innate to the activity of man, for various reasons, from the great migrations and movements in the search for Paleolithic hunting to the present day. A movement that was originally forced by the need to survive against the adverse nature, much earlier than the subsequent sedentary and articulation of man with the territory through the […]

Allegory of the border and the limit | Luis Gil

The neoliberal actuality that we have had to live makes it difficult, like no other, to refer behaviors, events and attitudes to a stable horizon, a concrete framework that serves as an articulator, as an element of dialogue and background to the analysis of a hardly acotable contemporaneity, nothing defined and a rapid emptying of contents, whose ultimate goal seems […]

¿Enseñar arquitectura? | Óscar Tenreiro Degwitz

Pasaron muchos años después de mi entrada como profesor interino en la Facultad de Arquitectura de la UCV antes de que pudiera encontrarme cómodo con el rol de profesor. Conociendo mis carencias, mis dudas, no creía estar en capacidad de orientar a los más jóvenes, de apuntar con cierta claridad en una disciplina que todavía no me abría del todo […]

Go back before going | bRijUNi

Contemporary and avant-garde culture, countervanguardia and perhaps underground culture, pop culture and some types of subculture as well as any anti-mainstream movement are likely to advance the evolution of aesthetic (if still existing) and thought issues and their own definition It implies this subversive positioning. It is difficult to clearly state what a thing is and what is not; when […]

Botas Ghirlanda → Malaparte → Godard → Cavani | Jorge Gorostiza

Recently, surfing the net, I found the picture Gulf of Capri, which Juan Manuel Botas Ghirlanda painted in the first decade of the last century and whose reproduction attached on this text. It is curious that the pictures and almost everything, is now seen more on the screens than in reality, although the impression is not the same. When I […]

Brodski and Utkin

From 1978 to 1993, the young Soviet architects Aleksandr Brodski and Ilya Utkin created an extraordinary series of prints with strangers, and sometimes impossible, buildings and urban landscapes based on a variety of architectural, literary and visual sources, from classical mythology to science fiction. The drawings present absurd proposals and fictional urban landscapes in eclectic mixtures of ancient mausoleums, industrial buildings, neoclassical […]

Akropolis Now | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

A small professional assignment has led me these days to find careers with a future. It was my first time. I confess that the information found after a first search, reaches a greater relevance in terms of the trend it draws than in terms of the information itself: upward races vs. declining races, skills vs. vocations, techniques vs. thoughts, practices […]

Clouds | Sergio de Miguel

“There will not be a single thing that is not a cloud. They are the cathedrals of vast stone and biblical crystals that time will pave. It is the Odyssey, which changes like the sea. There is something different every time we open it”. Clouds (I). Jorge Luis Borges Human thought is a mystery. It supports a variety of unimaginable […]

New tools proyectuales of reference: HiperMaterialidad | Miquel Lacasta

“There is no architecture without confidence in the matter.” Luis Moreno Mansilla1 Introduction If we understand the idea of matter in his philosophical form, namely, everything what exists out of the spirit and independently of the thought, or in other words, the not spiritual and not ideal part of the royal thing, we will have a purely negative definition. We […]

New tools proyectuales of reference: Productive Landscapes | axonometrica

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, the urban […]

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 […]

“Sed fugit interea, fugit irreparabile tempus”.1 A tour of the Canal de Castilla puts background to these reflections on time. A time of slow discourse between the sound of water. 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 of the […]

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

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, but now, […]

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

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 antiarchitectural world. […]
