Classes in one word | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

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 condensed with […]

VAD 01. Call for Papers. The begins

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 según unos […]

¿Interesa la arquitectura a la sociedad? | Stepienybarno

Nos parece interesante replantear cómo es la relación entre la arquitectura, los arquitectos, la ciudad y la propia sociedad a la que servimos. Y desde Stepienybarno, cada vez nos parece más importante analizar cuál es papel que jugamos los arquitectos en este planteamiento. Así que, con vuestro permiso, vamos a intentar analizar unas cuantas claves que quizás nos den pautas para […]

Fernando Higueras. Desde el origen

La exposición propone un recorrido cronológico y sumamente visual por toda la obra de Fernando Higueras, con maquetas originales de la época, fotografías, planos y audios en los que el arquitecto habla sobre sus edificios y su concepción de la arquitectura. además, en la planta baja se mostrará una recreación de su estudio en su casa, el célebre “Rascainfiernos”. “Iconoclasta, […]

Conversation | Sergio de Miguel

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 to proceed […]

Momentum II. Self, shell, shelter.

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 […]

The architects and their private devil | Óscar Tenreiro Degwitz

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 Devil painted […]

About the standardization of the wrong technology | Marc Chalamanch

In recent decades the omnipresence of technology has accelerated our history as never before. Technological determinism tries to explain how technology by itself is capable of influencing and transforming in a positive way the socioeconomic context in which it develops. According to its followers, technology has become the central axis of the historical changes that determine development and social progress; […]

What does not fit in time | Luis Gil

The historical horizon that we have had to inhabit makes all Western citizens of today belong without exception to the established society of consumption and excess. A syndrome that advanced and denounced from its beginnings, in the middle of the XX century, different thinkers and sociologists. Since then, capitalism has flooded our lives with superfluous behavior and unnecessary objects. From […]

The transgressions of the Aubette | Marcelo Gardinetti

In 1928, Theo van Doesburg formulated the most transgressive and consistent review on neoplasticism. The design for the interior rooms of Café Aubette exposes the patterns of elementarism, a representation that progresses the neoplastic idea to a spirited dynamic against the orthodoxy of horizontal and vertical dualism. This decision of Van Doesburg produced a confrontation between the most prolific members […]

Does anyone know what criticism is? | José Ramón Hernández Correa

Lately, based on reading blogs and websites, I am reading more about architecture than in many years. I am almost returning to the reading level I had when I was a student. Between that era of the school of architecture and the current one there is a turbid (and lucrative) stage of successful professional who bought expensive magazines to see […]

Entropy is described by physics as a magnitude that measures the degree of disorder of a system. The image suggested by La Ampliadora for this issue of the magazine may evoke high entropy. An ordered system only supports one possible configuration, so there is more chance that a system is messy. If we make the analogy with the cover container, […]

Concerning the life of houses. Another way of being flexible | Javier Mozas

“In this room (…), Mrs Moreau decided to install her kitchen. The decorator Henry Fleury conceived an avant-garde design for her and began to proclaim that it would be the prototype of the twenty-first century kitchen: a culinary laboratory one generation ahead of its time, provided with the most sophisticated technical improvements, equipped with microwave ovens, invisible hotplates, remote-controlled household […]

The dibrujo | Sergio de Miguel

“In hands of the architect, the la’piz constitutes a bridge between the mind that he imagines and the image that appears in the leaf of paper; in the ecstasy of the work, the draftsman forgets both his hand and the pencil and the image emerges as if it was an automatic projection of the mind that he imagines; or probably […]

In this blog I spread myself often against what I consider intolerable excesses of the architecture of flash, and criticize her without reservations (and I believe that deservedly). The own title of my blog, ¿Arquitectamos locos?, already I it have counted several times, it is necessary to to the indignation that I sit (or that was feeling, in full epoch […]

Yes needs more | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

This is a strange entrance with respect to the habitual thing and perhaps for that reason it pleases us especially. It is a text that is not specifically dedicated to architecture, nor to its authors; Nor does it talk about urban strategies, energy management or resources and many other issues that have interested us for years. This time we wanted […]

Sorting out toys | Sergio de Miguel

There are universes, ours is one, where there are joined a countless number of diverse presences. They join, are connected, congregate, gather in crowds, and sometimes they are accumulated. Often they agglomerate and assemble, are gathered and pile up, even they are packed in not measurable quantities. Then we tend to produce, inevitably, meaningful connections, links, binds and links. Orders. […]

The Formal Basis of Modern Architecture | Miquel Lacasta

In the first work of Formal Eisenman The Formal Basis of Modern Architecture, his doctoral thesis, begins as there began Jacobs in The Rise and Fall of Great American Cities, or Venturi in Complexity and Contradiction in Architecture, with a critique to the Modern Movement. It can be said that the alternative pressure of the decade of the 60, they need of any […]

The air is weightless | Sergio de Miguel

As the ocean is formed especially by water, the architecture is done principally by air. Even so that determines what happens in the ocean, and in the architecture, is not another thing that what is not a water, or air. Continent and content are never unlike, remote, and coincidental. When we refer to the matter with which the architecture is […]

The hypermodernity must get the space of the people | Miguel Villegas

An article in La Ciudad Viva, entitled Transit Society of our friends StepienyBarno, triggers as always a chain of ideas. I was going to leave a comment on the web (I have proposed to stop using blog because it seems almost contemptuous …) but I prefer to develop a little more the topic and thus be a little more network.

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 […]

Elements of Architecture. Rem Koolhaas

Architecture under the microscope. Rem Koolhaas’s essential toolkit to building anatomies Elements of Architecture se focuses on the fragments of the rich and complex architectural collage. Window, façade, balcony, corridor, fireplace, stair, escalator, elevator: the book seeks to excavate the micro-narratives of building detail.The result is no single history, but rather the web of origins, contaminations, similarities, and differences in architectural evolution, […]

In 1998 Peter Zumthor concluded the construction of Sogn Benedetg‘s small chapel. The Building was coming to replace the baroque church constructed in the Swiss people of Sumvitg that had been destroyed by an avalanche of snow. The original church knew of the risk to which it was exposed for what one of his buttresses had specialized himself in the […]

Towards a minor architecture

“A minor architect is a minor destructive character, handyman and hacker, journalist and editor, alter ego and subordinate. Who is skilled at fixing, can also sabotage, and knows how to dismantle as well as assemble”. Jill Stoner, Towards a minor architecture. Architecture can no longer be limited to the art of making buildings, it must also invent the policy of undoing […]

Opportunity | Sergio de Miguel

The most valuable quality of any action propositiva is to have a measured approach and an elegant intention with which to affect emotionally. To manage to wake up associations that stimulate the thought. To be capable of understanding the solution of a guessed right and suitable way. To distinguish profitable resources and to find the keys that explain the ideal […]

The moral condition of the materials | Javier Mozas

Mies van der Rohe tenía la creencia de que el arte de la construcción debía de basarse en los materiales. En el programa docente que envió a Henry T.

Often one thinks that the formatos only give response to the dimensions of the sheets, the linens or the frames, establishing relations between his different dimensions. Thus the dimensions of the paper are organized to industrial level, being based on the number v2 to establish all the relations between the parts and everything. The format is understood therefore as an […]
