Second opportunities | Silvia Blanco Agüeira

In 1961, just two years after the reconstruction of the Pavilion of the Hexagons in Madrid’s Casa de Campo, there was another surprising breakthrough in the Spanish capital: the arrival of the pavilion that the Duchy of Luxembourg had built at the Brussels World Expo of 1958. “Offered in advantageous conditions”,1 they affirmed the chronicles of the time. Few now […]

In many processes of investigation that we carry out to find the real possibilities of action it depends on our capacity identifying and distinguishing. Of exercising this iteration, this to return to the knowledge from the attention and the intention in search of new fields of interpretation. Opening one to examine intensely, one to ascend on having been able to […]

Looking down | Íñigo García Odiaga

To reject the direct look of the eyes can be a symptom of shame or coyness, this way it is in the habit of being interpreted when someone us lowers the look. But in some cultures like the Japanese it is a symptom of respect. For the architect this gesture can be of submission. Mies lowers the look to get […]

The language of the architects (II) | Stepienybarno

Today, we want to stop centring this descent to land of our “celestial” architectural ideas. The simplicity in the language and the use and abuse of metaphors to explain the architecture will be the guide for of this small text. Carlos Puente remembers us, “It is known well, that turns out to be easier to use a language complicated to […]

The language of the architects (I) | Stepienybarno

Why when certain architects speak they there is not understood practically anything of what they want to say and not even other architects are we capable of knowing where the shots go? And what happens when a person foreign to the architecture hears speaking to the architects “about his things”? “The architecture neither is, nor behaves as a language; it […]

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 […]

The blue of the sky | Marcelo Gardinetti

“I believe that when the architecture appears the aim to be able to be trasmitida, of being able to interpret the situations of the reality and places inside the historical rational process, it is in conditions to have progressive character”. Aldo Rossi1 From the 60s, Aldo Rossi‘s texts express a way of seeing the architecture that contradicts the unidirectional criterion […]

Spazialismo | Miquel Lacasta

I do not remember the year, but yes that I remember that it was a winter. I opened a suspicious book of the library of the university, very well supplied of nooks and wrong books, and thought the image that it illustrates this post, Concetto Spaziale Attese, 1968. In these times it was walking obsessed with Barragán, not specially at […]

Learning | Pedro Hernández

“In Internet there is a lot of garbage”. — A former teacher before the question of a pupil if it was possible to learn out of the university classrooms. There is in YouTube an interview to the writer Isaac Asimov who, out of context, reproduces occasionally for the social networks. In her, the Russian assures that the future – or […]

When everything sinks | José Ramón Hernández Correa

I propose not to speak of sad things in this blog. Principally because it does not serve for anything; not at least to relax. Crying is good, even hygienic, but to complain about everything is of nenazas, or of football players. In addition, what am I going to say? We all know it. Why to insist? So I will not […]

On-tuición | Sergio de Miguel

Our nature has provided an innate skill to us. The aptitude to use a type of deep, perceptive and inexplicable knowledge, for which we manage to understand and imagine realities without having to come to elaborated reasonings. A luck of instantaneous creativity that, showing him independently from the acquired knowledge, shows secretly sometimes as a happy hunch and always as […]

n+1. Compulsive trends. José María Echarte

Sometimes the architects we have believed ourselves so much the paper of unattainable and heroic genius – that someone designed for us – that we have finished for forgetting that child, that girl, who was painting houses of chalk in the soil. That was asking always why. These texts, compulsive, indignant, serious and enterteining, writings from a deep love for […]

The architecture of the words | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

Our life passes under the sky of the words: we live in the language.

Nevertheless, in occasions it was looking like that these sets been ordained as […]

Radiant city. Attacked Le Corbusier | Pedro Hernández

Any model is an exploration to future, a promise, a desire, the ideal image of a thought of what will have to be the architecture. Architecture before the architecture or architecture without a place or architecture in any place. Constructing a model is to anticipate this future; it is to establish in advance (and without risk of being wrong) a […]

Diffuse logic | Miquel Lacasta

The essence of the diffuse logic resides in the expression everything is a question of degree, in clear opposition to the logic probabilística pure in that everything is 0 ó 1, really or falsely. In other words the diffuse logic uses expressions that are neither totally true nor completely false, definitively it might be said that the diffuse logic is […]

In 1917 two English cartographers come to a people of Wales with the intention of measuring the height of the mountain Pfynnon Garw. The disappointment of the people is capital when, after realizing the opportune measurements, they announce that Pfynnon Garw lacks 15 feet to be considered to be a mountain.

Breviary of Ronchamp

“And if to dedicate (sacrare) was the term that was designating the exit of the things of the sphere of the human right, to profane was meaning to return, inversely, the things to the free use of the people.” Giorgio Agamben, Elogio della profanazione. Corbusier returns to the free use of the common one the work of Him in Ronchamp: such […]

Chernikhov’s fantastic universe | Marcelo Gardinetti

“The architectural fantasy stimulates the activity of the architect. It wakes the creative thought up, but not only for the artist. Also it educates and stimulates all those that enter in touch with him; it produces new directions, new missions, and opens new horizons.” Yakov Georgievich Chernikhov, 1927 Yakov Georgievich Chernikhov’s work Chernikhov is characterized by his permanent investigation on the architectural form.

Architecture of the mirage. Tests on the media city and the end of the public thing

It is this dedicated book. Dedicated in the sense. In the sense of the search of a logic. To investigate a logic to a mirage can consist of finding merely optical effects caused by unusual positions of air masses of different temperature, which combine the light that comes from the objects with that one other one that is refracted of […]

The noble savage. A Contemporary Architect’s Status | Josep Lluís Mateo

“Gardez-vous de la pureté, c’est le vitriol de l’âme…” Paul Valéry A Contemporary Architect’s Status. The imaginary of the profession of architect has historically seen the emergence of various paradigms. One, not too distant, is that of the globalised cosmopolitan genius, defending globalisation and, to use its own terms, the generic, and constantly proposing new horizons, which he finds in […]

The red Vienna | Óscar Tenreiro Degwitz

I have insisted very much on this space on what it can be looked in the Power if it has come near to him after a personal process in which a vision of a more just world, a perspective that we might call humanitarian associated ideal politicians and a philosophical “figure” of the reality, has taken place. It is this […]

Momentum. The Ambition of Scale

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 arises as […]

Institutional drawings | Marcelo Gardinetti

In the postwar period, during the first revisionism of the modern movement, some schools of architecture coincided in approaching the abstract analysis of the architecture, affirming that the actors fundacionales assimilated in his development the pictorial operations expressed by the cubism. One of the propellents of this thought was Bernhard Hoesli who, after Corbusier left the study of Him, I […]

From the Hybrid to the Complex Building | Aurora Fernández Per – Javier Mozas

The hybrid building. Our interest in this type of project is based on land consumption. The disperse city is the underlying reason for a significant part of the damage being done to the planet. Not only does it increase emissions as a result of individualized transport and consumption but it also undermines social cohesion and opportunities for social interaction, even […]

The Argentine poet was wondering on his contemporary ones, establishing conditions and manners of coexistence beyond a time and an epoch: those who are my contemporary? It was said.

A way of doing the things. “I love the beginnings. The beginnings fill me with marvel. I think that the beginning is what guarantees the attainment. If this one does not take place, nothing might nor would like to exist. I take a great respect as the instruction because it is a fundamental inspiration. (…) The will to learn, the […]

Inhabitants of the drawing | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

The drawing supposes probably the most valuable tool to see, not only to look, architecture. The cinematographic record of the eye, our vision in movement, our time, conceals often essential aspects from everything what surrounds us, folds of the visible thing only evident under certain conditions of attention and belonging to the place.1 The pleasure of drawing a face, a city […]
